Kismet Cosmetics: Opulent Body Bronzing Lotion

*Press Sample*

Most of the time here at Polish & Plates I discuss polish as well as bath & body items, but today I have a special treat for you - a boutique beauty brand from Louisiana to fall in love with! Meet Kismet Cosmetics.

KISMET. So simple, yet a word that isn't widely known. KISMET means destiny or fate. Which, from experience, is a word that can sum up life. The goal for the brand is to provide boutiques and customers with beauty products that consistently outperform higher-end brands, while keeping affordable prices for everyone. To develop wearable, on-trend colors while maintaining a smaller offering so you are not overwhelmed by too many options. Oh and they are made in the USA!

Kismet asked if I would be interested in reviewing their Opulent Body Bronzing Lotion and I reluctantly said yes.  Why did I hesitate? Well I have VERY fair skin and a pretty bad track record with any type of self tanning lotion. You know the horror I am talking about, orange, streaky results.

So what makes this product different?

This one night highlight gives your skin a natural-looking, bronze glow without rubbing or streaking. Opulent is a quick-drying body bronzer infused with aloe vera, chamomile and green tea to help moisturize and provide a luminous finish. Non-greasy. Non-orange. Non-committal.

Ok, I thought - its actually good for your skin (bonus mark in my book) and it doesn't smell terrible like a lot of other bronzers and self tanners on the market (in fact it smells good!). The product itself is very golden in color not orange at all.

Apply Opulent Body Bronzing Lotion to desired areas such as arms, legs and decolletage. Allow to dry five minutes before dressing. To remove simply rinse lotion off in the shower. LBD and LWD approved.

Above I have applied a light amount to the leg on the right. Want more color just add more product to achieve the desired bronzing effect. There are some great photos of the product use on the Kismet website and social media accounts - so go check out some much better photos!  I thought this product added a nice touch of color/glow to my very fair skin. I'll definitely be using this anytime I'm wearing a dress or a skirt just to give my legs a touch of color. 

I put this product to the test for you recently for my sister in law's wedding. I used it on my (very white) legs and it lasted all night and easily washed off the next day. As with any body bronzer I recommend lightly exfoliating your skin with a moisturizing sugar scrub before using to prep smooth skin.

Opulent Body Bronzing Lotion is a great price at $19.00 and is available online at Kismet Cosmetics. There are also some wonderful lipsticks and other cosmetics on their site that I can't wait to try - especially this Orchid Haze lipstick from their Velvet Semi-Matte Lipstick Collection. This color was dubbed the "perfect pink pout" by USA Today.  Kismet Cosmetics has also been named an "instant classic" by Southern Living Style and is Highly Recommended by HuffPost Style. They also have nail polish :)
Be sure to LIKE Kismet Cosmetics on Facebook and follow them on Instagram for more! Let me know what you think! Would you try this body bronzer for a glam glow for a holiday party or other occasion?
