Famous Cosmetics Baked Bronzer in 'Bali' [First Impression]

Dear readers,

For the longest time ever I was tempted to place an other from Famous Cosmetics, a UK based brand which apparently is a sister company to Make Up Academy.

Throughout this month they had everything at 1/2 price, plus you got a free party purse [for those of you who don't know it's an animal print pouch with 4 mini glittery polishes in it] when you spent over £10.

They ship internationally and have very quick shipping - my order arrived in about 5 days - which is quite good since I'm from Malta and not the UK.

One of the things I bought is the Baked Bronzer in 'Bali', the reasons being that 1) I do not have a baked bronzer and this one looked gorgeous and 2) because I loved the packaging....

.... but the one I received was not in the leopard print packaging but just a plain one [you can check out the photos if you scroll down] - was I sent an old packaging? Does anybody know? Didn't really like the fact that I was sent different packaging from the one on the website. I know that the bronzer is still the same but I am a sucker for pretty packaging.

This usually costs £6.49 but I got it at half price. You can get it from the Famous Cosmetics website here.

This baked bronzer comes in 4 shades, and the one I have is called Bali.

You get 9 grms of product.

The packaging looks like steel but is in fact plastic. You get a mirror on the inside of the lid, and a small brush too.

The bronzer is infused with gold shimmer which looks gorgeous on the skin.

It is also quite pigmented, and I've had no trouble with blending this on my cheekbones. The colour is picked up easily with the brush.

It stays on for about 5-6 hours.
