Carlene Bronzer Review

I love bronzers. I'm so pale especially in winter time, and whenever I'm showing some skin, I love to apply a nice warm glowing bronzer to my body. Carlene K Shine Bronzer ($24.99) gives you a sexy summer tan that is perfect for your every day, and even better for a night out.

This bronzer will not give you any streaks or create a big mess. It doesn't look like a "fake" tan either. It claims to be moisturizing, long lasting, easy to apply and easy to remove.

Carlene K Shine Bronzer was created by Celebrity Makeup Artist Carlene K who works with the famous PussyCat Doll. (LOVE them!), Carmen Elecktra and Britney Spears. It's never tested on animals, and it's used by many celebrities. The formula comes in 4 different colors, Golden Goddess (Light), Bombshell Bronze (medium) and Cocoah Queen (Dark). The Examiner voted Carlene K Bronzer the best beauty pick for 2010!

I have the Bombshell Bronze, the Medium shade which worked perfectly with my skin. At first swatch, I thought this was waay too "gold dark", and I was thinking I should have chosen the Light.

As I slowly started to blend, I found the color was just right. This bronzer blends extremely well, regardless of where you put it. There's a bit of pigment and a few golden undertones but in no way does it look over done or fake. This swatch is s on my arm but as I started to massage it deeper into my skin, it seemed to mesh to my skintone perfectly.



I wouldn't recommend the bronzer for your face,but it's great for your arms, legs, stomach and chest. For some reason my neck and upper chest seem so much lighter then the rest of me, and it shows when I wear a low cut top or a tank. Even people with a olive skin tone or a tan could benefit from wearing the Carlene K Bronzer because as the above pics show, there's no shine or greasy look, just a beautiful golden bronze. The smell is not strong, it's light and soft. It's basically a body lotion, just with an added bronzed bonus!

I would compare Carlene K Bronzer to the Scott Barnes Body Bling and the Pretty Peashun, without the hefty price tag. You can purchase this at for the sale price of $24.99 (Usually $29.99) Also visit the Carlene K blog for more on this product and find some great celeb makeup tips!
