Well, it's that time, again. Makeup Wars and I can just hear your mental groan. "Great. She's going to trot out a long, drawn out roundup of half of the shit in her makeup case. How long is it going to take me to scroll through this TL/DR tribute to long windedness?" Cheer up, gentle reader. I'm taking it easy on you, today.

This week's Makeup Wars theme is Extending That Summer Glow and I chose to natter about my favorite bronzer. I have one. One favorite bronzer. If you think I'm picky about the foundations I use, you should see the process a bronzer undergoes to qualify to join my makeup collection, much less be considered my favorite. Many are called, very few are chosen. I own I think... three? bronzers and only one qualifies as my go to, reach for it every time, buy another one when the old one runs out favorite.
