  • I did like the fact that I was able to use it regardless of my oily complexion, and it didn't seem to make the problem worse
  • I might be a little too old, at thirty three, for that kind of look, but it's not as huge an issue as I had immediately thought when I put it on for the first time and thought woah

      I’ve always been incredibly pale, and I’ve never been able to retain a tan. I could lather on the taning lotion, bake in the sun for hours, burn and then peel and then turn straight back to pale like clockwork. For the longest time, tan was the fashion. These days, pale is the look that’s in for the season, and I’m thankful to be natural “with the trend”. Perhaps I’m lucky I was never able to get that baked taning bed look. But, before pale became the “in” thing, I strived to achieve that sunkissed look. Even the term “sunkissed” seems gloriously romantic. And, even today, having a slight sheen to ones appearance seems to be the runway look to shoot for. Now, I’m pretty sure that my naturally and excessively oily complexion does not qualify as “sunkissed”. Instead it just looks plain oily. I have to use blotting sheets two or three times a day just to contain the levels of oil on my skin. But, I

      still strived for that bronze-looking sunkissed appearance. Hence, my purchase of Jane oil-free bronzing powder.

      I wasn’t sure how well this would work for me, because I’m naturally pale and naturally oily and, even though this product says it’s oil-free, I still have a tendency to have an increase in the oiliness of my skin using most anything other than a basic liquid foundation. I did like the application brush for this powder though. The powder comes in a compact like a pressed powder, but instead of using a sponge, you just brush the powder and lightly run it over your cheeckbones, nose and forehead (at least, so I’ve been told by all those nifty and informative fashion magazines). You can even pick shades most appropriate for your skin tone, so, although I’m very pale, I was able to find a shade of this bronzer that didn’t look unnatural on my skin.

      It has quite a shimmer to it, almost glittery in a way, and this was very ...


      • noticeable on my face. Perhaps it would be less noticeable on a skin tone that was a bit darker, but it was glaringly obvious that I was wearing a bronzer. This is okay for a night on the town when a little glitz is acceptable, but for every day wear, this just strikes me as a bit too much and needy-for-attention. I did like the fact that I was able to use it regardless of my oily complexion, and it didn’t seem to make the problem worse. Sure, it looked shiny and glittery, but it didn’t look oily or make the oil on my skin more pronounced. It seemed to last a long time too, even with regular touchups to my powder throughout the day.

        Again, this isn’t something I’d wear on a daily basis, or for an afternoon shopping with some friends, but for a dinner with my husband or a night at a nice bar, I don’t see a problem with the excessive glitter. I might

        be a little too old, at thirty three, for that kind of look, but it’s not as huge an issue as I had immediately thought when I put it on for the first time and thought “woah! glitter, much?” I tend to use it now more as a blush, and not an all-over bronzer. I just touch up the tops of my cheeks a bit, and it blends very well, so even though it’s a bronzer, it really does just look like a natural glow with my skintone, and not like I’m actually wearing a blush or bronzer at all. And, since it was only $4 and goes a long way, even with every day use, I don’t see it as a useless investment at all. Worked great with my oily complexion, and even though I’m pale, I was able to find a shade that accented my coloring very reasonably. Good product. They could lay off the glitter a bit, but otherwise, it’s a strong bronzer to add to ones makeup bag.
