Review: The Blody Shop Baked Bronze "Warm Glow"

If you've been following my blog for a while then you'll know that I'm not really a bronzer person. The bronzers I do have tend to be more on the highlighting side and this one is no exception.


I think I got this in a goodie bag a few years back, it's not a product I would have picked out myself (I'm far more likely to have chosen a blusher). There are two shades available from The Body Shop and you get 9g of product for £16. I believe the other shade is much deeper in tone than this one.


I have such a weakness for baked products, especially when they're pretty! This is a mix of beige and golden tones with a slight hint of pink. It's the pink that makes it wearable on me.


This is definitely too light and too highly shimmered to be used as a bronzer, even on my pale skin tone. It has a good level of pigmentation and is smooth to apply. I tend to use this more as a natural highlight. It adds a very nice touch of a glow, without being as obvious as some of the other highlighters I have in my collection.

I have a massive folder of photos sat on my computer of products that I haven't got round to reviewing. I'm trying to work through a few of them and prepare a whole bunch of pictures of new products, ready for 2013. Blogging may be a little randomised for now!

  1. Very pretty! You and I both are not really bronzer people, but I share your weakness for baked.

    1. Oh yeah, if it's baked and pretty then I probably want to buy it!

  2. This one is similar to Smashbox Halo highlighter which was dced years back. If only if it had more pink, I would be jumping on this bronzer.

    1. I don't think I've used much Smashbox. Is there anything worth having a look at?

    2. I like their eyeshadow palettes but the quality can vary. The recent ones promoted for the Holidays weren't great compared to the Photo Op eye enhancing palettes and the Photo Op trios. Their cream eyeshadows are pretty nice too.
