You asked, they delivered. Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter's bestselling Instant Tan Bronzing Gel in Matte is back by popular demand AND IT'S VEGAN. 

The new and improved formulation delivers an immediate flawless, radiant, glowing golden tan. It's the ideal product for tanning on a deadline as it dries immediately meaning no transfer – just glow and go.  

Forget cakey tan, the Instant Tan Bronzing Gel will give you the glow you deserve whilst still being sheer enough to look like the real deal. Add to that the fact that the Instant Tan Bronzing Gel is water-based and oil-free, meaning no blocked pores, and you’re on to a winner.  

Speaking about the Instant Tan Bronzing Gel, Cocoa Brown Founder and CEO Marissa Carter says, “Never in five years has a product been more requested by our customers than our Instant Tan Bronzing Gel.

"When we discontinued the Gel I honestly thought no one would notice and that it would go gently into the night. How wrong was I? Fast forward three months and we’re back, better than ever. Panic over ladies.”

Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter Vegan Instant Tan Bronzing Gel Matte, €7.95, is available from Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter stockists nationwide.

1. MAC Matter lipstick

A classic, and a crowd pleaser. If you are looking for a lipstick that will last, but that will also keep your lips from drying out, MAC is your brand. 'Ruby Woo' is our favourite colour (vibrant red), but there are so many to choose from.

3. Kylie Lip Kit

Look, we give credit where credit is due, and Kylie Jenner deserves a right pat on the back for her cosmetic collection. The Kylie Lipkit is long-lasting (seriously, it won't come off), and comes in SO MANY fabulous colours. Also, despite the costly shipping fee, Kylie's cosmetics are relatively inexpensive.
