Review: Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder

RRP: £6.99

The Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder has become a bit of a hit product in recent years. I totally bought in to the hype and picked it up when I realised I did not have a matte brown bronzer in my collection.

The bronzer is marketed as a chocolate bar delight, which is certainly does look like, but I would describe the sweet scent as more vanilla than our favourite cacao! The product is nicely pigmented, not too much that one would risk the oompa loompa look but just enough so that a perfectly bronzed effect is gained. I purchased shade 51 which I believe is the lightest and you can see the colour it is on my skin above. I like to apply this with my Real Techniques (RT) powder brush to my cheek bones, brow and forehead for a bronzed look, or with the RT contour brush to the hollow of my cheeks and temples for a more defined look. It is very blend-able, easy to work with and perfect for day to day wear as there is no shimmer at all.

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good value matte bronzer as it is definitely worth it.

Have you got any other recommendations? Or posts you would like to see? Let me know in the comments below!


  1. I've been wanting to try this bronzer for a while. Too bad it doesn't smell like choco :/


    1. It still smells nice, just not chocolate haha :) you should try it! x

  2. I love this bronzer, I could smell it all day it has sucha yummy scent xx

  3. I know you wrote that it doesn't make you look like an oompa loompa, but, in your opinion, how do you think this bronzer would look on really light skin tones? I'm a new follower btw, love your blog :)

    1. Hey, thanks for the lovely comment! I would recommend swatching it on your hand, but I think it would be fine, it's not super pigmented so if you start off light and build up I am sure it would work perfectly on paler skin :) x
