The recent Sandy Nude Collection featured four Face & Body Bronzing Duos. Two of them verge more towards highlighter/blushes rather than bronzers, Ibiza & Tahiti and the one I bought, Bermuda & Antigua (£34).
Now this is a large product, in the mirrored compact you get 0.74 oz/21g of product and the size is similar to my Tom Ford bronzer as shown below (full sized,
not the smaller version released).
Bermuda is a baby pink and
Antigua is a bronzey pink. There is some sparkle in Bermuda, I
initially thought it might just be the top layer but after multiply uses
its still there. Though I would prefer no sparkle, its only noticeable
if I look at my face close up.
The shades feel quite smooth, albeit on the dry side. Both shades have
good pigment and layer well with one another. The application is not as
faultless as my Suqqu or By Terry blushers so I do have to work the
product in well otherwise it can look patchy. As for wear time I get
fading after around 5 hours so I don't consider this to last above

Although I bought this as soon as it was released I've been
waiting to review it as when I looked at the ingredients I was irked
that it contains many things that I would normally avoid for my
sensitive, acne prone skin (the pit fall of buying online with brands
that don't list their ingredients). Though this has not caused me
breakouts it does make my skin feel a bit itchy, so worth bearing in
mind for those with sensitive skin.
Overall whilst I'm not enamoured with this, I am enjoying the finished
look, I like that you can custom blend the colour to your preference and
I find the shades provide an illuminating somewhat sun kissed healthy pink.
