Another great product from Isa Dora – Matte Bronzer & Body Brush

Another winner from Isa Dora. This time it’s  Matte Bronzing Powder & Body Brush.


Holy moly, it’s big. I’ll start with the bronzer itself before moving on to the brush.

The best thing about this bronzer is the that it is matte. Bronzer fans will know only too well how hard it is to find a good matte bronzer that isn’t orange. As far as I’m aware, Isa Dora sell some other bronzers which have more sheen and shimmer too.

It’s pigmented but isn’t too over-powering for light coloured skins. It warms the complexion without adding ruddiness (yay!) and made me look healthy. I have been also using it as a contour powder, since it’s it’s matte it’s idea. I used to use Benefit Hoola for this purpose but the Isa Dora version is cheaper.

The brush is just fabulous. I was expecting it to be a  little scratchy since most body kabuki’s are. I was very wrong. It feels so smooth and soft that I kept swiping it over my face repeatedly :) It’s very big and dense which makes it perfect for applying the bronzer to your body. I had my legs done (knee and under) in a couple of swipes. The brush costs €19.95, worth every cent if you use bronzers on your body.

To give you an idea of how absolutely humonous the bronzer palette is I took a picture of it next to a full size mascara.

The bronzer costs €25.95 which  might seem a little steep but I’m getting an awful lot of product in comparison to other brands.

The packaging is quite sturdy – I dropped it when I first opened the lid, typical Amy, but it survived.

Quite a few of you were asking me where to get the Isa Dora glow stick and pink lipstick that I fell for.  The products are on sale in pharmacies around Ireland.

What bronzer are you using at the moment?

    If you like Isadora then you need to try their waterproof black liquid eyeliner, very black and glossy. the best one I’ve tried.

  • Rona

    Is this similar in colour to hoola or a little darker?
