Looks, and Bronzers, Can Be Deceiving

See this compact over here?

Looks like a regular old bronzer now, doesn't it? But what you can't tell from the photo is that it's actually a massively oversized pan intended for use on the body, and it has a secret...

It's scented.

This is the Smashbox Fusion Bronzing Body Powder Set (it comes with the kabuki brush shown), three stripes of glimmering bronze perfection. And they all carry the same heavenly gardenia-amber scent as their predecessor, Smashbox Body Lights Glowing Lotion.

While this bronzer is absolutely gorgeous on its own, and looks quite fetching dusted across shoulders and legs, what really slays me is that scent. It's very similar to Monyette Paris, making it a perfect layering companion for summer nights.

And if you don't believe me, this exact scent combo drew compliments from the founder of Bond No. 9 when I wore it to an event last year. Can't argue with the expert, right?

Just make sure you don't accidentally bronze your nose when you stick your face into the compact, obsessively, trying to get yet another whiff of that dreamy scent!
