Review: Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Bronzing Pearls

Happy Wednesday! How are we all?? Today I will be reviewing Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Bronzing Pearls*. This is my first time using a bronzer, I guess I never tried it was because I didn't know what it was for and how to use it. What I learnt on the internet is it can be used for contouring or give you that "tan" look.

According to FOA "The luxurious light weight and concentrated pearls combine silky powder technology with a special blend of mixed pearl shades to match any skin tone or type. Perfect for highlighting, bronzing and creating a soft, iridescent effect. Run brush over the pearls and sweep evenly across the skin to build colour where desired. Can be used on face or body".



I used a lot more of the bronzer for the swatch, it's not this dark on the face lol

Application: Gently brush the pearls with your brush. Apply lightly the bronzer to the apples of your cheeks. I also like to apply it around the side my face (e.g jaw line, hairline, forehead). If you're contouring, probably better to use a matte bronzer.

Additional info:
  • Made in Taiwan
  • RRP $14.95 AUD
  • Availability: Big W, Priceline, pharmacies, any large retailer.
  • Not tested on animals

What I like:

  • Buttery texture of the pearls
  • Looks very natural,  not too shimmery
  • Comes with a brush
  • Value for money

What I dislike:

  • Some might say the brush is a little small

Overall: Since this is my first bronzer, I don't really have anything to compare it to. It does work pretty well on my pale face. I mainly used it to give my face the tan look. My face is so weird, it's like 3-4 shades lighter than my neck and shoulders. It actually looks like I got my face whiten or something.

Do you use bronzers?

Thanks for reading!!!

  1. My face is darker than my neck! It's so difficult choosing foundation because if I go as light as my neck I'm sure everyone will notice :( I love the sheen of the bronzer, it looks perfect for the summer time!

    1. Hey ATH, i see your problem, it's hard sometimes finding the right shade. For me i always end up getting too light.

  2. I had been experimenting with conturing a while back, but it doesn't really work as well for me being typical asian with large cheekbones. I didn't use a bronzer tho, just a darker shade pressed powder that I bought hurriedly by mistake.

    Might look into this one.

  3. Wow, what an expensive glow for such an inexpensive product - reminds me of the MAC Extra Dimension highlighter in Superb. I will have to pick it up and do a comparison!

  4. Ooh, I currently get my bronzer from Malaysia (it's actually a blusher, I just use a brown shade) and I love it but am running out! May have to give this a shot, since I already use some of the FOA range!

  12. The little pearls look so pretty - and I like how it has a pretty sheen, but isn't too shimmery~
    I've never used a bronzer, but I think I should at least learn how to contour ^^

  21. The shade reminds me slightly of my MAC MSF in By Candlelight. I have never really been into bronzer because most I have tried looks too orange or muddy. But this summer, I am actually interested to try some out! Thanks for the review!
