Company’s Description

Silky, smooth powder that complements most skin tones and blends easily. Subtly fragranced with jasmine, tuberose, sandalwood and cassis.

Michael Kors’s new beauty line is divided into 3 sub-sections: Sporty, Sexy, and Glam. Each section has a nail polish, lip gloss, lipstick, and bronzer.

This review is for the bronzer from the Sporty line, Flush–a shimmering pinky-tan.


Packaging: 9.75/10

This bronzing compact is very large (the size of your hand) and made of mirrored gold plastic. It has Michael Kors’s name embossed on the top, flips open, and contains a full-sized mirror inside. The compact is incredibly sleek and glamorous, though it is a magnet for finger prints.

Quality: 9/10

Flush is a shimmering pinky-tan shade. It has fantastic pigmentation. The color, as well as the shimmer, make this product most suitable to use as a blush or (applied very lightly) an all-over shimmer color. It also looks stunning used on the body.

The powder is not stiff and not overly crumbly/dusty. It transfers very well onto the skin and blends out smoothly.

The only thing I really dislike about this powder is the strong (not subtle, like the company describes), sweet fragrance that’s been added to it. You can tell the powder is fragranced right when you open the compact–before you even put a brush to it. Fragrance is irritating to the skin, and should not be included in makeup. If it weren’t for the inclusion of fragrance, this bronzer would get a perfect score.

Ease of Use: 10/10

This powder’s smooth formula makes it pretty effortless to use. It transfers well and creates an even layer of color.

Price: 9.5/10

For $50.00 you get 0.74 ounces (21 grams) of product. This is an expensive bronzer, but you get much more product than with comparable luxury brands’ bronzers. For example, Guerlain’s Terracotta 4 Seasons Tailor-Made Bronzing Powder costs $75.00 and only contains 0.35 ounces. YSL’s Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powders cost $50.00 and contain 0.35 ounces.
