Review: Maybelline Spring 2012 Bouncy Bronzers and Illuminators

Maybelline has launched their Spring 2012 collection. It includes 2 Bouncy Bronzers and 2 Illuminators.

The bronzers come in two colors, Glistening Sun and Sun Glow. I did not like the Bouncy Bronzers. They have a little shimmer, which I didn’t find bothersome, but what I didn’t like about them was that both of them had a strong orange undertone. Not flattering!! Bronzers should look natural. I love the “bouncy” formula as far as texture. The bronzers are not long wearing. Just like the bouncy blushes, they have about a 4 hour wear.

The Illuminators are really good for a drugstore formula. They come in Ray of Gold (yellow) and Blissful Pink (pink)  They are not as finely milled as a high end highlighter.  They are a little chunky and they have some micro glitter.  The yellow one looked flat out yellow on my skin.  It is not a golden color.  The pink one has a really pretty hue to it.  I liked it. If you don’t want to put a lot of money into an illuminator, this is your product.  They run around $9.

So, what do you think?  Have you picked them up and if so, what are your thoughts. If not, are you going to add these to your collection?  I’d love to know!!
