New Look: Gold by Giles - Face

It's Friday! Anyone else have that funky Friday feeling? Grab yourself a Crunchie whilst you check out the last in my series of Gold by Giles beauty range posts :) Go on, you deserve it!

I've never really been one to lust after the infamous Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks, but if you have and haven't wanted to shell out, lots of brands have released their own purse-friendly version. Gold by Giles is no exception and there are currently two in the range, Metallic and Pink. I received Metallic which is a lovely bronze blush. As you can see from the individual colour swatches, the blush is very pigmented. I particularly like the highlight shade. The product is very shimmery but not in that in your face disco ball kind of way. As you can see it comes with a teeny brush which is rubbish; who has cheeks that small? Anyway, overall a lovely product but one I think that would be suited to those with darker or more tanned skin. As mentioned before, I'm a bit of a Casper! Priced at £2.99.

Oh to become a bronzed beauty. Whilst I live in the hope that one day I'll become a sun goddess and no longer look like the aforementioned Casper, I make do with bronzer. I thought this was pretty impressive with its embossed gold 'G' but I got my hopes up too soon. As soon as I swept the (generically rubbish) brush over the product, the gold practically disappeared and the matte bronzer crumbled like a bad biscuit. The gold is pretty darn beautiful but I can't see it lasting very long in the pan. The bronzer isn't for us paleys, I at least found it too orange toned for my skin. Combined, the two shades give a pretty shimmery shade that would no doubt give a sun kissed look on the right skin tone. Priced at £2.99.
