Review! Avon Glow Bronzing Pearls

For the Glow collection Avon came out with two shades; Bronzed (the darker of the two) and Sunkissed. I thought Sunkissed looked pretty and I had never tried any cosmetic pearls before so I decided to give them a try! They were $9.99 but will be $12. Here's what they say about them in the campaign book:

"Multi-colored pearls swirl together for an instant radiant glow."

I thought that the jar would be a little taller.. It's the same height as my deluxe sample of Benefit's Total Moisture Facial Cream. This didn't make me angry or anything, haha, I had just assumed it would be a taller jar. 

When you open it there's a piece of foam there to protect the pearls. So if you threw it in your bag or something they won't get all crushed up or anything.

And then when you remove the foam insert there's obviously the pearls! They're very pretty. There's warm champagne, very pretty and warm pink and light bronze colored pearls. The pearls cover just the bottom of the jar, and then the second layer only covers almost half the jar.. If that makes sense! At first I didn't think it seemed like much, but I think it's fine! I only need a light dusting. The jar is 22 g..

Here's another look at the pearls.. Now these do have a scent.. I don't think it's so much of a bad scent, but I don't like it very much. I'm not sure how to describe it.

Here's a swatch on the back of my arm. Doesn't it give just the prettiest glow? I use this as a highlight and love it! It's a great highlight for summer and to pair with a tan. I use my Avon Glow Bronzing Brush with these and they make a wonderful pair!

So, I really like these and I'm happy that I decided to give them a try! I've been using them pretty much everyday!


  1. Hi, I am doubtful about which shade to skin is pretty light but I don't want a blush, I want a bronzer. Do you think the lighter one can be a good bronzer or would you recommend the darker one to me?

    1. Hi Camilla! I apologize for not replying to you sooner! Do you want to use them for a bronzing effect or as a contour? I see them more as highlighters or bronzers used for adding that bronzed, sunkissed glow.. So if that's what you're looking for I think that this shade would be fine.
