I was positively "aww"-ing when I opened Lancôme's newest bronzing palette.
More squeal-inducing than some of the shots on cuteoverload.com, the new, limited-edition Star Bronzer Sun Cherub Compact is the glistening, powdered relief of a cherub cozying up to the sun. This multi-colored rendering has rays of terracotta, shimmering gold, and dark bronze which, when blended, look as beautiful and luminous on the skin as they do in the pan.
And speaking of the pan, it's gigantic (think CD-sized), which makes it perfect for body bronzing. Simply sweep a chubby Kabuki brush over the bronzer and whisk it over your neck, shoulders, and chest.
If it takes you a while to actually use this thing (instead of just gazing at it and showing it to anyone who'll pay attention), you're not alone. Maybe I'll have to order another one. (You know, just for show.)
