The sight of my pale, white face in the mirror everyday for the last few months was enough for me to start the search for much needed bronzer....and believe me, it is hard to come by in China! This is the land of skin whitening...where umbrellas are used during summer and the skin is safely shielded from the sun as much as possible. But since Spring and Summer are slowly on their way, I really needed to get a much healthier glow.

So, I was smiling from ear to ear when I found my latest discovery...Elle Girl Cosmetics! Elle Girl Cosmetics are sold in Sephora stores all around China. The cute, fancy packaging caught my attention right away. They have a wide range of products from lipsticks, eyeshadows, eyeliners, blush, foundation, powders and my favorite: their multifunctional products. One of them, Balthazar's Favorite Multifunctional Powder, can be used on the eyes as eyeshadow, cheeks as blush and all over the face as a highlighter, illuminator and bronzer. I love the way this powder gives my face a nice bronze sheen that looks really natural and lightly sun-kissed. I mean, what could be better than that?

gives a nice healthy golden glow to the cheeks and face. 
This comes in two shades: brown/bronze shades 
and pink/blush shades. (238rmb) (US$38)
