SHIMMERY, creamy, APPLY WITH FINGERS bronzer ☀️
As a makeup artist who’s tried everything, I’ll always only tell you about my favorite products that I actually use on myself and my clients. I don’t typically like much shimmer in bronzer because I feel like it can be overwhelming to a face in real life (for selfies and red carpet it’s great) because when the color fades, you’re left with glitter pieces all over, which isn’t how I want to look. This cream bronzer is different. You can place it exactly where you want it so there’s no sweeping a brush across your face and hoping the glitter doesn’t go everywhere. The formula seems to stick around pretty well, although don’t think it’ll last as bold in color through until the end of the day. Nothing in the clean beauty world does, and that’s ok. Take it with you if you’re gonna be out and reapply. No big deal; it’s a small price to pay knowing that it’s good for your body and for the environment. Yay clean beauty! The two shades are gorgeous and will work on a lot of skin tones - both on the cheeks, whether applied alone or with a creamy blush, or on the eyelids. If your skin tone is deep or deep dark they can work great as more of a highlighter, as they’re not super deep in tone. I never use cream bronzer on the forehead because I find it can get streaky and be hard to apply evenly. Foreheads get powder bronzer from me. Because we’re on lockdown quarantine right now I haven’t had a chance to play with these on any other skin tones, but I’m sure they would both look great patted onto lips of anyone JLo’s skin tone or darker. 💜

The KEVYN AUCOIN - The Neo Bronzer was gifted to me via Octoly. I received the shade Rose Cliff. The blush has an ombré coloring from a bright medium warm tone pink to a warm tone gold. The blush has a beautiful sheen and slight shimmer to it. The retail value is $38. This is a luxury makeup item but performs the same as products of lower price points. While the pigmentation is great, as well as the wear time, it doesn’t blend seemlessly into the skin. It is a bold blush, not a natural one. I’ve enjoyed using this as an eye palette because my go to shades are always pinks! The palette has a beautiful satin sheen that looks great on the eyes. In my photo I’ve swatched each color separately, but I tend to apply as one combined color when I use it as a blush.

Chocolate Heart Shimmer Bronzer🤎
This bronzer was part of an I Heart Revolution gift set. Initially out of the other products the set contained, I was the least interested in this one. I also wasn’t sure what’s the best way to use this product as the shade is not something I would gravitate towards. It is too dark to be a highlighter for me. However, it’s too light to bronze and isn’t warm enough to warm up my face. Sometimes I put a bit of it on the perimeters of my face and it gives a subtle glow but it doesn’t really add much colour because it’s very close to my skin tone. However, after playing around with it. I found that it is absolutely AMAZING🤎 to add a glow and bronze the body. I put it on my chest, collar bones and shoulders. It gives the most beautiful sheen and it really makes my collar bones look incredible. #I Heart Revolution - Chocolate Heart[products]#[ThreeStars]

Fenty Matchstix shimmery fun
Fenty Matchstix are one of Fenty's signature products and they come in two versions, matte and shimmer. The matte ones are meant for use as a concealer or contour, while the shimmer version is meant for well, some shimmer or highlight. I have here the shade sinnamon and starstruck. Sinnamon is one of my favorite shades, it's a bit dark for me as a bronzer so I use it as an eye shadow! Performance of the shimmer matchstix is pretty good however I do find that the matte ones were disappointing. They were a bit chalky, hard to blend and I did not find the one that matched my shade worked well as concealer. Swipe for swatches of two shimmery matchstix!FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick These retail $25 each of 3 for $54, making them $18 each. I think they are an ok deal if you buy three. Overall I'll give these 4/5 stars. The packaging as with everything Fenty is A++++ !

I love me a good bronzer. In my opinion, nothing looks better makeup wise than a bronzed, dewy glow. And this marcjacobs Tan-tastic O!Mega Bronzer Coconut Perfect Tan is not exception. As a high-end makeup brand, I would say that it’s a splurge but it’s also massive, the packaging is luxurious and the mirror is awesome. I must admit the packaging might have had something to do with this, but I can honestly say the product inside is worth the investment. The shade is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones. On my skin, it turned out to be just the right shade of tan that helps warm up my complexion. The powder has a strong, coconut scent that’s a little sweet. Sort of like the Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer but way less intense. The formula is super smooth with a soft, silky consistency and incredibly easy to blend out on my skin. I like to use a big powder brush for this bronzer. When I dip my brush into it and start swiping it on my face, I don’t get that patchy brown powder because there’s too much product on the brush. That means a lot to me because it’s overwhelming when I get a huge chunk of powder on my face. It has good pigmentation and the shade is dark enough so that I can use it to subtly define my cheekbones and jawline when I put it on with a smaller, denser contouring brush. And sometimes I do a similar thing on my lids – giving a moody matte wash of color. It’s what I wore basically for my everyday look as it’s just so easy to use and apply. I take it all over the lid, smudge out the edges with a fluffy brush and call it day. I usually like a little bit of shimmer to add to that look. But, this bronzer only is enough when I don't feel like using a highlighter. Even though it has a matte finish, it doesn't appear too flat or dry on my skin. Instead, it does have a sheen to it and it looks luminous on the skin without being shimmery. One last point I'd like to make about this bronzer is that it wears pretty well. I think I get 5+ hours which is a lot for me.

This highlighter is stunning! It ranges from lighter to deeper shades in this strip that makes it versatile to use for highlighter, bronzer or toppers. The texture is very smooth and blends out on the skin like a dream! I’ve even used it as eyeshadow and it looks great! I’d definitely recommend trying it! The formula and way it looked on my skin blew my mind for it being a drugstore product. It’s great! 10/10 I’d recommend it. PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Shimmer Strips Light Bronzer
