♡ Boujoius Paris Bronzing Powder aka Chocolate Bronzer: Review & Swatches ♡

Hey everyone, recently I mourned the loss of my Elizabeth Arden Bronzer which I had not parted with for approximately three years! This left me at a complete loss, Should I repurchase or try something new? I had heard a few good things about Bourjois Bronzing Powder also know famously as "The Chocolate Bronzer". I decided rather then investing huge amounts of money into a repurchase of my past bronzer I would see what all the fuss was about and purchased "The Chocolate Bronzer".

I purchased "The Chocolate Bronzer" off of Asos, it was priced at around 15NZD if I can remember correctly. I have heard Asos sell out of this bronzer quite a lot so its definitely worth checkin back from time to time. 
After purchasing this bronzer I found out that they have just recently redesigned the packaging, So this is the old packaging design. The packaging itself is very hard and sturdy, perfect if you have to travel often.

Once opened, you will see a cute little message talking about the benefits of using "The Chocolate Bronzer". Such a sweet idea.
And here is the bronzer itself, Im very happy with the size of the palette, this shall last me for another 3 years (heres hoping) I must quickly mention how lovely "The Chocolate Bronzer" smells, and from  glance you would think it really is chocolate!
Quick swatch, I found this bronzer to be nicely pigmented, with a slight shimmer in the formular however once blended it gives a beautiful matte finish. I think I might be in love!

In conclusion, I have stopped grieving the loss of my old bronzer and have started a long term relationship with  Boujoius Paris Bronzing Powder!! Matte finish, Slight shimmer with an amazing scent, what not to love. Plus this bad boy is very pigmented. So a little goes a long way. Which means our love will last forever.

I rate Boujoius Paris Bronzing Powder 4/5 hearts.

  1. I love this product. I was able to get it because my family was coming over from England for a holiday, and they picked me up a few UK makeup items.
    How did you get yours?
    I really want the highlighting powder thats almost the same as the bronzer but looks like white choclate instead.

    1. I brought mine off of Asos, they ship internationally. It worked out to be around $15 NZD I think for the Bronzer. Definitely worth it. Asos do sell out of this bronzer all the time so be sure to keep checking back. :) I am in love with it already!!! Let me know if you want a video on how to contour with it :)

  2. I did use this, but I found it slightly too orange on my pale skin, but overall it wasn't that bad. x

    1. @Angelica It comes in a few shades, I havent had a problem with this one in particular. Do you know which shade you had? What bronzer do you use these days :)?

    2. I had the lightest one, I think it was 51. I now use the Nars Laguna bronzer.

    3. I have been wanting to try the Nars Laguna Bronzer, what do you think of it. Its so expensive 2 buy in New Zealand.
