The makers of my most favorite sunscreen are out with spanking new bronzers. The Clinique Almost New Bronzers ($28.50) are part of their Summer 2009 Self Sun Collection. The collection features several self / safe tanning products including Body Airbrush Spray, Face Tinted Lotion, Body Tinted Lotion, Body Daily Moisturizer and of course the Almost Bronzers. Since I am naturally pretty tan, the only thing that appealed to me were their bronzers.

The Clinique Almost Bronzers are available in two shades - Light / Medium and Medium / Deep. The compacts each have two shades in them . One half is a lighter highlighting shade for the perfect sun kissed glow and the other a deeper shade for a more pronounced bronze look. My favorite thing to do with this compact is to contour. There is a brush hidden under the product that is surprisingly very useful. It is super soft, dense and is brilliant for contouring. I use the deeper shade along the natural hollow of my cheeks and move it onto the temple. And then use the lighter shade on the apples of my cheeks. The contrast is not too striking which is just the effect one wants to achieve for everyday face contouring. Additionally one can also use the darker shade on the corners of the nose and the lighter shade along the bridge of the nose for the JLo style glow. I love the versatility of the compact - a sheer look, a medium look , a more intense look and contouring - All in one !

If you are new to powder bronzers and are looking for something easy to use yet something that gives you enough choices to perfect your bronzed look , check this bronzer out . Its the answer to all your prayers.
