It’s unfortunate that local beauty companies often skip international summer collections based upon the assumption of Asian women and their craze for fair skin. It’s quite a contradiction really, considering Singapore’s tropical climate.
Lately I’ve been going through a bronzing phase, which initiated after purchasing Dior Shimmer Powder and complemented with nude lips. Picture Ivanka Trump who tends to be a traditionalist when it comes to all things fashion and beauty. Speaking of which, she underwent a bold change several hours ago, sporting blunt bangs at the 2012 Met Gala.
Here’s an assemble of bronzers that I’ve amassed in the last 2 years;
■ PALGANTONG Kamayaki TerraCotta Cheek in Cappuccino Brown
Guerlain’s is the most pigmented of the bunch, whereas Revlon’s has a hint of pearlescent glow. NYC’s bronzer is a favorite among the US bloggers, not just for its affordability but also for its matte finish. Sadly it’s not available outside the States.

Are you into bronzers too? If so, what are your favorites?
