Giorgio Armani Maestro Bronzer… Next Level Bronzing

Cheat that post-holiday glow with the most radiant, skin-kissed bronzer ever.

Last year, Giorgio Armani (Kim, that’s GI-orgio) launched the limited edition Maestro Bronzer Liquid Summer N°100. It went down an absolute storm, so much so, it’s back, with a lighter and darker sister, and this time around, it’s permanent.

I came across this earlier in the year at a Giorgio Armani masterclass. I’ll admit, I was a little dubious when I looked at the bottle, it airs on the Tan-tasic side and I wasn’t after the Donetella look, but as soon as it touched my skin I was SOLD. In just seconds I had that much coveted post-holiday glow.

Maestro Liquid Summer is infused with golden micro-pearls that leave a veil of sunlight. Now available in three shades N°90, N°100 and N°110, I was matched to the middle shade. It’s a warm, golden-hued brown with a very fine golden shimmer. Although it looks very dark in the bottle, it does sheer out on application.

It’s my first liquid bronzer and I am surprised by how easy it is to apply. It can be dabbed on the high planes and contours and blended for a naturally bronzed look or added to a moisturiser or foundation for all-over kiss of colour. Personally I prefer applying it to the contours with Real Techniques Sculpting Brush. Give the bottle a good old shake, dispense 1 or 2 drops on the back of your hand, dab in the brush and sweep along the jawline, cheekbones, temples, hairline etc. Then using the same brush, buff and blend to sheer out the product. At the Armani counter they applied it with a flat-edged foundation brush so it’s pretty versatile. I haven’t tried it yet but I’d imagine a beauty blender would also work well. The practically weightless fluid boosts the natural tones in your skin to make you feel all golden-goddess-y. It’s sublimely bendable, it practically melts into your skin, leaving behind absolutely NO harsh tan lines. One application is enough for me, but you can seamlessly build it up to your desired depth. There’s a noticeable shimmer in the bottle but on the face this translates to a beautiful, healthy sheen.

Let’s talk price, Giorgio Armani doesn’t do budget. At £39.50 (Debenhams - here) it’s at the top price point, but I honestly think it’s a real wonder product and I don’t regret a single pound. One bottle contains a whole vat of bronzer.. I’m not sure if I’ll ever get to the bottom of it… but I’ll look beautifully bronzed trying.
