Bronze Takes the Gold

Hypothetical situation: It's Monday morning, and you're ready to go back to work after a nice long weekend at the beach. You can't wait to brag to your coworkers about your fun in the sun, and show off your gorgeous golden tan and sunkissed cheeks, but there's one small problem - that golden tan is nonexistent, as are the sunkissed cheeks, and you're as pale as you were last February. You've been slathering your face in SPF 30 all weekend because you are deathly afraid of getting wrinkles and sunspots and allowing your freckles to resurface and -

OK. I think we've established that I'm talking about myself here. Ahem.

My solution to this problem? DuWop's newest creation, Bronzerush. This pretty gold palette houses a slightly shimmery bronzer powder and a sheer gel-based blush. I've become addicted to June, a golden tan bronzer with a surprisingly wearable poppy colored blush, but if you're naturally darker, go for August, a deeper bronze shade with a cherry blush.

The bronzer is sheer enough to dust over your face without making you look like you've been rolling around in the dirt, and there's not even a trace of orange in there, so it's Oompa Loompa proof. Better yet, the corresponding blush gives you the healthy glow of a vigorous beach volleyball match or 18 holes of golf in the sun, without any actual physical activity. Perfect for the lazy folks who like to brag shamelessly about their weekends, wink wink. The face must match the stories, friends. And Bronzerush will get you there with just the sweep of a brush.
