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 Urbandecay.com
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.
$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 (?).
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!
