As with everything in the makeup world, when I saw the new “No” line by Perricone MD I was intrigued. I was strolling around Sephora and was most drawn to the No Bronzer Bronzer. To be honest, I first laid my fingers on the No Blush Blush, then, saw the bronzer formula. First of all, I love the whole concept behind Perricone MD products period. The company is all about anti aging, and for those of you reading and feel that “anti aging” is only for people 30 years of age or older – your mistaken. The fact about skin care is you have to start as soon as you can. Protection is key, which starts with sunblock. I live in Florida, and I have to vent for a minute – what irritates me the most is seeing these young people baking themselves in the sun for hours on end, and not seeing them apply sunblock or use a hat or any kind of protection. With saying that, I was once one of those people. Now, I hate admitting to people how much I have spent on corrective procedures to get my skin even, and maintaining it’s normality. Please don’t ask. Okay, if you must know I will share my stories.
Back to the No Bronzer Bronzer – $30….
Basically, the No Bronzer Bronzer is a warm medium color, with SPF 30, and is a fabulous product for contouring. This is a liquid formula which at first I was not really sure what to think. After a while, I thought it was really easy to work with until it set on the skin. Once it does set onto your skin that’s it. You can’t really do much with the product. When applying the bronzer, focus on one area at a time. I find when applying it with a duo-fiber blending brush – it works really well to blend the product. The very first time I applied it to my skin I used my Sigma Flat Kabuki, and it didn’t really do the job. It wasn’t until I used the duo-fiber brush that I noticed significant results and it was easy to apply.
Overall, it left a very natural bronzing effect with a beautiful glow. The day I used it I went to a wedding – I was asked about my makeup all night. This is already a good sign. Right?
What it is:
An innovative serum designed to contour youthful definition while imparting an elegant veil of warm color and protecting with an SPF 30.
What it is formulated to do:
No Bronzer Bronzer mimics healthy skin pigment with one universally flattering shade and diffuses imperfection and sun damage with vitamin C Ester. When used as a contouring serum it accentuates youthful definition. Mix No Bronzer Bronzer with No Foundation Foundation to personalize color and achieve an endless number of shades. Remember to shake well before using, and start with one drop full on the back of the hand. You can build to the look you want to achieve.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
I would recommend this product. I love the concept, I love the glow it gives my skin, and I love the protection it provides. Don’t let the size of the bottle sway you in a different direction. A little goes a long way with this one. Literally, one drop on the back of my hand like I recommended is all I need for my whole face.
