This is a follow on from my last post all about the L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation. I went into more detail there about cushion foundations and how they work and gave a review and demo on it, so if you want to know about that just click on the link here, and you can have a read. This post is going to be about L’Oreal’s second cushion offering though, the L’Oreal Glam Bronze Cushion De Soleil.
This is pretty much (as I am sure you guessed) a liquid bronzer in cushion form.
It comes packed in the same way as the foundation.
You get a applicator sponge on the top layer, and then there’s an airtight cover over the actual product to help keep out bacteria and so it won’t dry out.
Also like the foundation, the L’Oreal Glam Bronze Cushion De Soleil is a water based product and deemed a ‘fresh glow bronzer’ by L’Oreal.
I am been really enjoying using this. Again, l am a rebel and don’t really use the sponge applicator that comes with to apply. The sponge works fine and is great for on the go, it also has rubber backing so the product doesn’t soak right through.
The bronzer is matte and warm in colour. It only comes in one shade as of yet, which is a bit of a bummer. Hopefully L’Oreal will bring out some more shades to suit darker skin tones.
The formula is really smooth and it blends really lovely into the skin. It also layers up really nicely if you are looking for a more sun kissed look.
Here it is applied to my skin over the L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation.
I apply it with my foundation brush (or sponge) onto the high points of my face.
So, my ginormous forehead.
Across my nose.
And then, I apply a little under my jawline too to create a little bit of shadow. I like to think it helps a bit with the roundness of my face….I don’t know if it really does though…but sure look 🙂
I usually apply two layers of the L’Oreal Glam Bronze Cushion De Soleil to my skin. This warms up my complexion a little, but still leaves it looking somewhat natural. It gives a warmth but doesn’t look orange in my opinion at all and it dries down to a satin finish that’s very similar to the foundation. They work really well together.

After Applying Bronzer
It doesn’t contain SPF like the foundation though, I think that’s worth mentioning! I find myself using the cushion bronzer on a daily basis of late and skipping the powder bronzer. I am just really enjoying the natural finish it gives and how easy it is to apply. You can’t really go overboard with it unless you really keep layering product up.
Do I think it will change your makeup life? No, not at all. It’s a lovely product and a bit novel in the fact that it’s in a cushion formula, but I don’t think you necessarily have to go out and pay €22 for it. That of course, like everything is just my opinion 🙂
You can pick up the L’Oreal Glam Bronze Cushion De Soleil in store from Boots or from their website here.
