Current Favourite Bronzers

Thursday, November 24, 2011


Hello lovelies,

Today I wanted to share with you some of my current favourite bronzers! I love bronzer (even though I already have an olive/tanned complexion). Bronzers are great to add a bit of color, glow, or contour to your face!

1. PUR Minerals Mineral Glow 

This is a new bronzer that I have been loving. I got a travel sized sample of it from one of my subscription boxes and I have been loving it every since. Mineral glow blends well to give my skin a natural look. Though summer is long gone, I still enjoy mixing this with a blush for a perfect sun-kissed look. It's not a matte bronzer, there is shimmer but it's not overwhelming. Overall, it's a great way to brighten up the face. Great for any time of the year.

2. Hard Candy "Fox in a Box" Skinny Dipping

Another newbie in my collection. The Hard Candy box powder came out sometime in the summer and they are amazing! Super pigmented and super inexpensive (especially compared to Benefit box powders). Skinny Dipping is probably my favourite. It's a gorgeous bronzing duo and it's lovely on the cheeks. I suppose the color payoff of this wouldn't exactly be classified as a bronzer but more of a blush... but I'm going to include it anyway.

It's a matte finish and adds a gorgeous peachy/coral/bronze sheen to your cheeks. You have to apply this with a light hand and you cannot forgo blending. It's just so pigmented that if you apply too much, there's a chance you'll come out looking clownish. It's such a vibrant color but it really is one of my favourite blush/bronzers.

3. NARS Heat

This is actually a pressed powder that I got last year. At the time, this was the perfect color for my skin tone. Now it's way too dark for all over the face so I use it to contour. It's also a matte finish, it's silky smooth to apply, and it blends easily.

4. NARS Laguna

This is a cult favourite. I don't think I can say anything about this that you guys don't know already. It is a great bronzer! Probably even my all time favourite. I don't know what it is about it. It's the perfect color and it applies seamlessly for the perfect glow.

5. Benefit Hoola

Another popular favourite. This isn't as flattering on everyone as Laguna is. Again, it's a matte finish but it's a little dark. It's great for contouring! It has the ability to make you look muddy though. Depending on how you apply it and what your skin tone is.

Still, I really like it. It works great with my skin tone. I avoid looking muddy by applying a little at a time and blending well. It's always easier to add than to take away. The great thing about this bronzer (despite the price) is that it lasts a long time! Seriously. I have had this bronzer for a few years now and I still have tons of product left. The packaging will probably give before I actually hit pan on this.
