I'm in need of another bronzer  because my little one broke the one I was using, so I found myself doing some research about which one to get. I search mostly at the drugstore first, because I have the Target RedCard that gives me 5% off and free shipping, but I was curious to see what was out there in the high end world as well.

I am gathering all of the opinions of beauty gurus in the You Tube and blogging world. So here it goes:

Urban Decay Beached Bronzer

$28 at

This beauty comes in two shades: Bronzed and Sun-kissed. You can use it for contouring as well. This belongs to the summer collection and the packaging as well as the formula is spot on.

Nars Bronzing Powder

$39 at Sephora

I reaaally want to try this one because I hear really good things about Nars. This comes in two colors, casino and laguna and each one has a rich brown shade with a gold fusion that makes it perfect for creating a sunkissed look or enhancing radiant, tanned skin.

Urban Decay Naked Flushed

$32 at Sephora
I talked about this product in one of my makeup posts for Wayne Goss, and it's a really great choice because it has a bronzer, a highlighter and blush all in one palette and you can use them individually or blend them together. I want it. 

tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer

$30 at Macy's

The design and the packaging on this bronzer is gorgeous and it's said to be long wear. It's infused with Amazonian clay to give you a natural look. I should get this one as Argentina shares part of the Amazon river (?).

Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer

$29 at Sephora

I've talked about this bronzer before and I put it under the overrated high end products because a lot of people find that it's very similar to the Physician's Formula Butter Bronzer that retails for $14.99 Also, Michelle from Ready, Set, Glamour says the drugstore version allows you to get more product our because of the packaging. But I'll include the Benefit one here because it's a lot of people's favorite. If you want to explore more affordable options, check the Physician's Formula one mentioned above.

Rimmel Natural Bronzer Waterproof // #22 Sun Bronze

 $4.99 at Target

This reminds me of the wet 'n wild bronzer that is also really good. This one is a waterproof bronzing powder that gives your face a sun kissed glow any time of the year.

E.L.F. Cool Bronzer 

$4.00 at Target

Loooove the price tag on this one and I love elf products in general. This one is probably not my shade for bronzing only (the next one is) but worth to mention for more cool toned ladies. Blend all 4 colors together to achieve a blend of perfection or choose your favorite color or colors to mix, match and blend.

ELF Warm Bronze 

$4.00 at Target

I feel this one would give me a more bronzy look blending all the colors together or using the two darkest ones.

Physicians Formula BB Bronzer SPF 20 

$8.99 at Target

Aghhh, love Physician's Formula's packaging. It reminds me of the kind of makeup an Indian princess would own. And we're all princesses, right?

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Sunkissed Bronzer 

$12.89 on Amazon

This one is a little bit more up there in price but the tones look amazing.

Which one is your favorite? Is it on this list? I am definitely tempted to try one of the elf ones and the Physitian's Formula one that us beauty expert Tati's favorite!
