The perfect bronzer makeup for you.
The ushas bronzer makeup is an affordable and good product. I bought this during the black Friday sales on Jumia and I have no regrets. So I said to myself, why not share this beauty with your blog readers and you all know I am a beauty on a budget kind of girl and a lot of my blog readers have sent me mails after my review on this charcoal peel off mask and asked me to share more affordable beauty products in Nigeria. So here I am with a review post on the ushas face and body bronzer makeup but before I get into reviewing, let’s set a foundation and talk about bronzers especially for those who don’t know about them.
What is a bronzer?
A bronzer is a warm toned powder or liquid makeup product that gives you the appearance of a suntan. Bronzers come in different forms like liquid, powder, gel etc. The powder form can be either matte or shimmery.
Benefits of using bronzer makeup
- Gives an illusion of a sun tan
- Used to add warmth to face
- Used to enhance features in areas that are natural darker
- Gives a healthy glow that would make people stare
- Can soften angular facial features especially for those with prominent chin and strong jawlines
Disadvantage of using bronzer makeup
- If it’s not applied correctly or you do not get your right shade, a bronzer can end up looking like you smudge dirt on your face. Then nosy Nigerians will ask you questions like “sister, you rub shit for face”. Smh!
Bear in mind that Bronzing isn’t the same as highlighting or contouring. If you use a bronzer to contour, it won’t end up well. If you want me to do a detailed post on the differences between highlighting, contouring and bronzing, then let me know in the comment section.
The Ushas Bronzer Review
As usual I will be reviewing this product based on packaging, affordability, availability, quality and quantity. After which a final verdict on what I think would be given. So without further ado, let’s begin.
Packaging: The product came in this compact case with a clear glass on top. So you can see the product even without opening. This product did not come with a packet neither did it come with a brush or applicator. It’s just the case containing the bronzer and that’s all.
However, I absolutely love the tree design on the bronzer. It gives me this beach vibes and I think it’s thoughtful that they added patterns to the bronzer. The bronzer is very portable and would provide little or no space occupation. Hence, this is a good product to travel with.
Quantity: The quantity of this product is really good based on its price. If you are minimal when applying makeup products, this bronzer will last for a long while.
Affordability: I purchased this bronzer for just N750 which is equivalent to $2.
Availability: This bronzer is available in most cosmetics stores. I saw it at a super mart named Just rite in Lagos, in Port Harcourt, it’s available at prince mega, Gossip and at many local cosmetics stores. I purchased mine online from Jumia.com and you can get yours here. If you are located outside Nigeria, you can check Amazon and this store on Aliexpress to purchase similar products.
Quality: This is the crux of this review and I saved it for the last. The quality of this product is surprisingly great. It is highly pigmented, it doesn’t wear off easily i.e it is long lasting.
It gives a nice shimmery look although you have to be careful while applying to avoid it looking too much. I advice you start with a little quantity and build up gradually.
Does it work: Yes it does! I have used this bronzer consistently since December 2017 and I am very impressed.
What I loved most: The bronzer is really affordable and it gives that healthy glow which is every girls dream.
Would I repurchase : Yes I will, if I run out again I still will repurchase over and over again until my bank account is large enough to splurge on the Estee Lauder bronze goddess powder which is my dream bronzer.
Rate it: I will give this product a 6 and half over 10.
