Bronzer is my favorite make-up. It’s usually the make-up I look for when I go shopping for cosmetics. There’s just something about bronzers that I love. Maybe because when applied it changes your aura and it can enhance your best feature.
I also love it’s golden/brown/tan color.
I have been collecting bronzers for a long time now and I have accumulated quite a lot already. Some that I don’t like I have given away.
Let’s start with the very first bronzer that I bought way back in late 90’s.Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Evanescent Golden Beige. I super love this that I hoarded. Until now I still have a few left. This is why I love Chanel cosmetics it takes a lifetime for you to hit pan.
I have been using this for so many years already. I heard this has already been discontinued. Altho’ I am not sure.
I apply this all over my face and it gives me a nice golden glow.NARS Bronzing Powder in the shade Casino.I know NARS best seller bronzer is Laguna. But I love this shade more. I just find Laguna so dark for me. Altho’ this is also quite dark but I like this shade more.
Sometimes I use this to contour. But I also use this to warm my face.
Bahama Mama is something I always reach for. This is very pigmented and blends well.
I just swipe my brush around it so it picks up all colors.
There’s a lot of Elf products that I like. And one of them is their bronzers. This palette already has contouring powder and bronzing powder.
This is very pigmented and blends well.
Benefit is known for their good bronzers and highlighters. I like that it has pinkish shade.
Prestige Sunflower Illuminating Bronzing PowderI just recently talked about this product. This is one of my April favorites. I bought this in Beauty Bar in Rockwell sometime last year and it’s only now that I started to use it and love it!
I like that it’s not so shimmery. And I also like the shade. It comes out so natural when applied. I look like I just came from the beach!
Deborah Milano Bronzing Powder in the shade Terra Lumi-NatureDeborah Milano is a European drugstore brand that I like. It’s kinda pricey compared to the usual drugstore brands. But this is very good. I also like their eye shadow palettes.
This is in cream form but it dries powdery. This is expensive but hey, it’s Chanel.
Bourjois Bronzing Powder + Illuminateur DuoMy favorite Bourjois product! I love bronzer and illuminator duos and this particular one by Bourjois is very good! Not to mention this smells like chocolate.
I like the the natural shade of this and the way that it is very blendable is another plus.
I use the lighter shade to warm my face and the darker side to contour.
I use this as a contour more than a bronzer.
The Body Shop Bronzing Powder in the shade MediumI first heard about Body Shop’s bronzing powder from all the British beauty guru’s that I follow. They have been raving about how good this is and I couldn’t get hold of this since it is not available in our Body Shop here in Manila.
So, when I went to Hongkong last month I made sure I went to Body Shop and I am so happy I finally found it!
I imagine sun, sand and golden tan every time I use this. I love the shade of this. I glow when I apply it. I look like I just came from the beach!
This came out also in one of my monthly favorites.
Marc Jacobs O!MEGA Bronze in the shade 102 TantricMarc Jacobs cosmetics is very luxurious and very good. From their eye shadow palettes, to their lipsticks, to their eye liner pencils, to just about everything in their line.
This blend very well and very pigmented. Love this.
Smashbox Perfecting Bronzer in the shade Suntan MatteI was looking for their contour palette. I heard that it is very good. But when I went to Beauty Bar in Rockwell they didn’t have the contour palette so I picked this up instead.
Color pay off is good. Blendable. Pigmented.
Ètude House Face Color Corset in the shade #4 & #5My favorite Korean Cosmetic brand. Aside from Ètude House skin care (which they are well known for) they also have a long range of make-up products. I like their lip pencils, their eye brow gels, their mascaras, and their lipsticks.
Their contour which they call corset comes in two shades, #4 & #5. I sometimes use the darker shade for bronzer and the lighter shade to contour.
This is suppose to be a blusher but I use it as a bronzer and sometimes to contour. This is highly milled therefore it blends well. My camera didn’t pick up the color well and came out orange. The real color of this is golden brown.
It has shimmers and it looks nice if you apply it on top of your contour.
I picked up a few of their cosmetic products in Hongkong recently. I love their lipsticks and this bronzer.
Altho’ this is a contour kit I use the dark shade to warm my face as well.
I use this both to contour and to bronze. Love it!
If I were to choose my most favorite in my collection I would choose this first and second the Soleil Tan De Chanel.
This is very deceiving. You just need a little amount and it transforms your face to a sun goddess! And you don’t look like you have any bronzer at all.
So, there you are. My bronzer collection.
