Madame La La are predominantly a sunless tanner brand, however they’ve recently launched their first cosmetic product; the Madame La La Bronzing Ball £14, which is available alongside their tans on the Beauty Chamber website. Madame La La are a cruelty free and vegan beauty brand which was founded by Nicole Dash Jones, and has been featured in many press outlets since the brand launched and are the first beauty brand to launch a DD self tan to recognise the benefits of Coco Water within skincare.
I’ve seen Madame La La feature on a lot of brands for their fake tans, and from what I can gather, their sunless tanners are great quality however I don’t use any fake tan of any kind so I can’t comment on the quality of the tanners but there are hundreds of reviews out there if you do want to know what their tans are like.
Madame La La say;
“Bronzing Ball is a 180°colour cosmetics twist-up cream bronzer for a precise glide on instant bronze – no makeup brushes needed! Bronzing Ball achieves an easy year round bronzed glow in effortless strokes – one shade suits all. Infused with Vitamin E & Coco Water hydrating properties the luminous and glimmering shade with a 180° dome applicator is easy to use for bronzing, contouring and highlighting the cheeks, lips and eyes.”
The Madame La La Bronzing Ball is packaged within a short, black, matte plastic base which has a twist up mechanism so you can wind the bronzer both up and down and it comes with a clear lid to keep the cream formula airtight. The ‘ball’ has a subtle coconut scent which is a nice touch and I love anything coconut scented. I was worried that the Bronzing Ball would be way too orange for me as I’m super pale, and the ball is very orangey within the packaging so I decided to practice on my hands first before applying to my cheeks incase it ended up being a disaster.
Even though the Madame La La Bronzing Ball has a cream formula, it applies like a powder and is easy to blend into the skin. Due to the domed effect of the ball, you could apply it to the body as well as the face and I think it would look particularly lovely on the shins for an effect similar to how the Sally Hansen Perfect Legs works for a more perfected effect if you’re going bare legged this party season.
The shade is a touch too dark for me, but I’m yet to find a cream bronzer which isn’t but you can apply the ball directly onto the skin or you use your fingertips or a brush/sponge to apply the product which gives a much more muted and natural glow which I personally prefer.
The Bronzing Ball gives a pretty, subtle sheen to the skin and is ideal for the colder months when your skin might be a little lacklustre and the round, 180 degree format makes application so easy, and would be good for travel as you don’t necessarily need to use any other brushes or applicators. I bet it’d look gorgeous on holiday when your skin is bronzed, especially as it contains hydrating vitamin E and coconut water to help replenish any lost moisture.
