I’m just obsessed with this amazing product that gives skin a sunkissed look without any signs of Tango-face. I notice on the packaging the French description reads ‘Bonne Mine Sur Mesure’, and if you remember, I was – and still am – besotted with the Laura Mercier Bonne Mine palette. Bonne Mine roughly translated means ‘healthy looking’. In English, the product description is ‘Made To Measure Glow’. Mr Radiant is a weightless gel infused with tiny spheres of brown pigment and golden ‘radiance’ pigments. I will have to apologise for my skin-tone – it’s a very cold day and for some reason I can’t warm up so there are blue tones there that aren’t normally!! *shivers*
|You can clearly see the pigment spheres interspersed with the gel.|
|This is far more than you would need for your face.|
|Rubbing the gel with my forefinger and you can see the spheres starting to break and deliver pigment.|
|Pigment spheres smashed before blending.|
|The final, delicate and subtle healthy glow!|
Quite genuinely, this stuff is gorgeous – and it smells delicious too – a kind of fruity floral mix that isn’t overwhelming but just adds to the pamper factor. Actually, it is quite versatile too..it can be used on bare skin to just boost your tone, it can be layered for a ‘tan’ look and can be used under foundation if you want to take your tone up a notch but aren’t ready for bare skin. Totally, totally love it.

ooh that looks like something for me! Givenchy is often underrated but they have a few gems in their range!
I must say that this looks great, the spheres, the gel, the glow, but I suffer from that condition known as *ruddy porcelain* as in red/terracotta face and milk white neck, so it could be said that I have the glow, (or maybe the hot flush?) it has just not travelled to my neck. I do like the look of it though. Thanks for the review. Jan x
I have beautydiarist’s problem too; my once porcelain skin tone is now more Farmer Fred’s Wife. Though it does look better with a tan. How long does the effect last?
oooh looks lovely! it’s a bit like Soap&Glorys Glow Job moisturiser, which has little bronzer beads in it.
I think I might just try this!
thanks for the review/pictures. it looks really good! very tempted to try it out myself eeeek xo
This looks very appealing, might have to try. Last year I used a tint by Nuxe which gave great results colour-wise and smelt nice enough but the texture was a bit off-putting and hard to work with.
Wow, this looks like a fab product! Thanks for sharing x
This looks really amazing but do you think it would work for darker skin tones?
Thank you 🙂
Any ideas where I can buy this? I can’t find anywhere online.
