Revlon ColorStay Mineral Bronzer in Deep Bronzer- Review

Its been quiet long now that i have been wearing this bronzer so I thought I would give my thought on Revlon ColorStay Mineral Bronzer in the shade 050 Deep Bronze.
Price: Rs 900/- now its probably 1000/- bucks coz it got it last August i suppose..

Revlon ColorStay Mineral Bronzer
What the web says: Innovative mineral baked powder technology has a silky, weightless feel for natural, healthy blush color that lasts for up to 16 hours. 
ColorStay™ Mineral Blush & ColorStay™ Mineral Bronzer contain skin loving minerals that are good for your skin and ColorStay™ longwear technology that lasts for up to 16 hours. This innovative mineral baked powder technology applies easily and blends seamlessly for natural looking, sheer, soft radiant color that won't streak or fade all day.  
Formula is non-irritating and fragrance free. 
Available in 3 Blush and 2 Bronzer shades 

Expert Tip: Wear blush/bronzer alone or over foundation or powder. Using brush applicator, start at the apples of your cheeks and sweep upwards on your cheekbones toward your hairline.
Packaging: It comes in a black rectangular sturdy plastic box with a see thru lid & a mini cute brush.

My Thoughts: I don't wear it starting at the apples of the cheeks as this is a bronzer that i got & not a blush. I start at the hollow of the cheekbone near the hairline & then blend it toward near the cheek area. Its extremely easy to use, it blends like dream. It also blend well with any other blush..I have used it over the foundation, powder foundation or over bare skin.. it stays for a very long time, it doesn't fades easily. Formula is non-irritating and fragrance free for sure. It is weightless, you don't feel as if you have really applied something. Even if you think you would have applied it alot it doesnt streaks or look made up. Even if it mineral based it doesn't looks fake.. its very natural looking. Well pigmented, Good quantity comes on the brush with 2 swipes. It looks great even when used as a blush on wheatish complexions.
Even if it looks metallic on the swatches it looks very natural when applied.
Yes the little brush.. Unlike other brushes that comes along with the product is pretty much useless but atleast this brush is useable. It fits great on the hollows of the cheek bones, helps to blend well & you don't need any other contouring brush... YYYYAAAYYY!!!!
