Bronze Binge

Hello! So first off, an apology for my absence, my exams are now over, and I am very excited to be able to get back to blogging! I have a few posts planned that I'm looking forward to doing! But I'm sorry things have been moving a little slowly on here recently and I haven't been posting regularly, work sux...
Anyway! On to what I wanted to talk about today... So over the weekend, John Lewis have had one of their 10% price match events that I love so much! I did intend to avoid this one, as my bank balance was lacking a little (although obviously not enough to stop me in the end) but of course I just couldn't stay away from their beauty hall, so here's what I bought!

Clarins liquid bronze self tanning for face and d├ęcolletage, clarins instant smooth self tanning makeup base, bobbi brown limited edition face and body bronzing duo, and chanel soleil tan de chanel sheer illuminating fluid in sunkissed.

So.... Avoiding went well.... And does anybody detect a bit of a theme to my purchases? I'm seriously the palest person ever but I am determined that this summer I am not going to hide in the shadows, trying not to dazzle people with my milk bottle complexion, I WILL BE A BRONZED CALIFORNIAN BEACH GODESS!! I just really want me some bronzing, so I went into John Lewis to pick up some ammo. I think I'm pretty much ready for action with that lot!
And as if that wasn't enough bronze for someone as pale as me, the new bourjois bronze collection was released in boots and of course I needed to go and indulge...

Bourjois bronzing primer, bourjois b&b bronzing cream.

So that's my little haul, some high end, and some high street, all of it a lovely shade of bronze (hopefully what I'll be when I use it all!) there has been a powder released with the bourjois range too, but I didn't feel like I needed it (lol I'm totally rational, like I needed any of these things?!) but I have a couple of bronzing powders already so it just didn't seem like something I needed to add to my collection, whereas the other items were a bit different to things I already have.. A heads up to those interested as well, the new bourjois range currently has £3 off each product in Boots, so go out and grab them while they're only £6.99 each! I would also like to tell Chanel, that I would appreciate them bringing out the sheer illuminating fluids in a variety of colours, because I want more! Give me some opal, and pearly pink and peach tones. I'll seriously buy them all. Will my love for highlighters ever end? I doubt it... Wish me luck with my hunt for a bronzey summer glow, and pale girls, I'll be getting back soon with how all of these work for us :)

Do you have any of these? Which is your favourite?
