One of my favorite things about makeup is trying new products. It’s like Christmas year-round! So of course I love when Jane Iredale releases new seasonal makeup. They do such a great job at releasing products that are perfect for that season. Moonglow has been a favorite bronzer of mine for a few years now, so I was nervous when I heard that they updated it. Thankfully, Jane Iredale kept the colors the same and just made the bronzer more eco-friendly by making them refillable so they fit easily into the refillable compact. They also changed the 4 colors to stripes rather than quadrants.
Goodbye old Moonglow…
And hello new refillable bronzers!
I was also able to try their other two bronzers in Sunbeam and Rose Dawn AND their new Lip Drink in Flirt. I’ve been using these products for a few months now and even made a video a few months ago, but unfortunately this summer was busier than I expected so I wasn’t able to write a post until now. Long story short, I really love these new products.
First, the swatches. The swatches below are of the bronzer overall rather than one specific color from the palette.
Like I mentioned above, Moonglow has been a favorite for years. It’s the perfect bronzer for my fair skin. For you porcelain beauties out there, I highly recommend trying Moonglow for a hint of peachy bronzeness. Too often bronzers make my skin look dirty or orange, but not Moonglow! What is also great is that it doubles as an eyeshadow palette and you can use the colors as eyeshadows (this applies to all of the bronzers). It was a bit easier to use as an eyeshadow palette when the colors were in quadrants but I think it’s been easier to use as a bronzer when the colors are in stripes.
Rose Dawn is more of a blush than a bronzer. It’s a beautiful pink that’s not too bright or too baby-doll. It lights up my cheeks and gives me a rosy glow. I really love the medium brown in this palette for an eyeshadow – I think it is my favorite brown of all 3 bronzers. It’s a peachy pinky brown that is very flattering for my skintone. While Moonglow’s colors tend to be more yellow/warm, Rose Dawn are more pinky/cool.
Lastly, Sunbeam is a darker bronzer that would be perfect for medium skintones. As a bronzer, it is too dark for me but once again – the colors work great as eyeshadows. The color tones are similar to Rose Dawn, just darker.
Flirt is Jane Iredale’s latest Lip Drink color. I love the Lip Drinks because living in Arizona, I need SPF on my lips any time I am outside and only use lip balms with SPF. Also, they are moisturizing and the colors are sheer so provide a pop of color while still looking really natural. Flirt is a peachy pink color that is very similar to my natural lip color. It reminds me of a cross between Buff, their nude, and Crush, a pinkish berry color. I’m glad they came out with Flirt because Crush is pretty cool-toned and I wanted a Lip Drink that was a little warmer and closer to my natural lip color. And voila! Flirt was released.
So you can best see the colors, I made a video tutorial of how to use the bronzers as both a bronzer as well as for eyeshadow – and of course I can’t keep it to just one look. I do a daytime look and then show how to build on it for a nighttime look.
Have you tried the new bronzers or Flirt yet? What has been your go-to makeup this summer?
