My thoughts
Bronzing is something most Pakistanis are not very fond of – since we’ve got a tanned complexion already – but don’t we all just love that summer glow?! Bourjois Maxi Delight Bronzer is a wonderful multi-purpose bronzer that not only gives you a subtle bronzed glow but could also be used for contouring.

To start off, it comes in a huge pan that’s probably gonna last forever. I’ve got it in Shade 02 for olive/tanned skin which basically is medium matte powder with tiny golden specks that don’t highlight imperfections or appear frosty if that’s what concerns you. It has the yummiest fragrance to it (coconuts and chocolates, kind of like ‘Bounty’ which is one of my favorite chocolate bars) that lingers for a short while.

I simply love the texture! It’s finely milled and quite different from rest of the drugstore bronzers that I’ve tried so far. What makes it so unique is that there’s absolutely no fallout no matter how many times you swirl your brush across it and so no product wastage. Though it’s quite sheer on the first swipe, you could easily amp up the intensity according to your liking. What's best is that it doesn’t appear powdery and blends into the skin evenly and effortlessly. I am not bothered with the tiny shimmer for it scatters all over and isn’t so visible after application. Moreover, it looks absolutely natural and doesn't scream 'I'm wearing a bronzer!' which is amazing! I also use it to contour my cheekbones and it works great that way too. It stays on perfectly well throughout the day without blotching or streaking.   

Overall, I am very content with this product. I use it religiously and love how natural it appears on my skin. I definitely recommend giving it a whirl if you crave for a natural-looking tan effect or want something for subtle contouring.
