The Bronzing Papiers are lightly powdered blotting papers that contain pigment and shimmer to create a sun-kissed glow. They measure 10cm x 6.5cm each and come in a booklet of 100 sheets.

There are two shades to choose from, Light to Med and Med to Dark. Light to Med is a mocha color that is a couple of shades darker than my NC30 skin.

At first, I was a little skeptical. The sheets looked very shimmery and almost had a metallic sheen to them. But once I pressed one onto my nose, cheekbones and forehead, it gave me a gorgeous, subtle tan without looking dirty.

The powder is also really fine and silky, making it invisible on the skin. Plus the color actually stayed on all day and do not transfer easily. And any oiliness that I had? GONE!

Now that’s what I call a 2-in-1 product!
