I own quite a few bronzers but I must say the Clarins Splendours Bronzing Compact is the most beautiful bronzer I have ever seen! It has an Aztec inspired design stamped on the bronzer with the same design on the compact. The stamped design is so beautiful you almost don’t want to mess it up! Clarins is not a brand you hear of often (it’s a French company) but I just couldn’t pass up this beautiful bronzer. The quality is really great, it’s matte with an orange-toned luminous center that can be used as a highlighter or if mixed together with other colors will add a nice bronzed glow to your look. The two matte shades surround the luminous center, one shade is a light brown shade while the other shade is about 2 shades darker with a slightly orange undertone. Both shades mixed together look really great on the skin and don’t make you look orange. The color is buildable and very believable. The bronzer has a nice scent, I can’t really figure out exactly what it smells like but it’s very summery. I have sensitive skin and although this bronzer is scented it does not irritate my skin. The compact is larger than most compacts but still can be held in your hand without too much trouble. There is a larger mirror inside that you can actually use when you apply it unlike the small mirror in most compacts. Considering that the bronzer has 0.70 oz of product, at $35 it’s a steal! This is a limited edition bronzer and is currently sold out on the Clarins website but you can still buy it on Nordstrom’s website with the added bonus that you always get free shipping with no limit!
