I loved so many collections released in 2015 and so many products that I got to try for the first time last year.
One of my best purchases in 2015 is without doubt Giorgio Armani Sun Fabric Powder Bronzer in shade #100. It is THE bronzer for my complexion.

Rockstar is a dark eggplant colour, with a micro glitter that gives it more of a metallic finish then shimmer. The finish is very subtle as the colour is quite dark when applied. It is a bit of a chameleon shade, it can lean cool or warm depending on the lighting and how you pair it with an eyeshadow.
