Bronzer Bonanzaa

Bronzer Wish List


I was never a bronzer girl, until I started working.
I thought pale skin was ideal with a pink blush was the ultimate form of girlishness and I relished it, but women in my office soon taught me about bronzer, and how health and the look of bein sun kissed is also appealing. Since then, I have been addicted.

It started with NARS Laguna, and now my current collection contains Chanel, Gueralin, Edward Bess, all the way down to ELF! I even want to try the NYC bronzer in Sunny (have heard many good things)

Above is my current bronzer wish list. I am not sure if I will purchase a bronzer this year ( I have too many already, many brand new in the box!)

But if I could purchase one this summer, these are my current top wish list contenders.

Clarins Bronzing Duo: I don't have too much experience with Clarins but this looks damn appealing, with the two shades to choose from for contour or an overall color, and ease of swirling the colors together for a happy medium.

Laura Mercier Matte Bronzer: Laura Mercier is a brand I want to like. I have had mixed results with her products but this bronzer has always caught my eye.

Too Faced Chocolate Soilel: I have heard soooo much about this, the matte perfect brown hue, and the scent? Just an added bonus!

Tarte Matte Bronzer: For years I thought Tarte only sold that Park Ave Princess Bronzer with the mega shimmer, and I have always passed, but I recently found out they have a matte version (where have I been?) I swatched it and it was instantly wish listed!

Mark Bronzer for Avon: I have heard the pigmentation and color of this is excellent from the likes of the Pixiwoos (they know thier stuff)
The price is just a bonus!

Guerlain Bonne Mine Powder: Ahh the super fine glow this gives, the gradual build up of color, the beautiful warm gold bronze, grab a MAC 150 and go crazy with this one to add health and radiance to the face

Shisiedo Bronzer: Did you know Shisedio made a bronzer? I think this may be only sold in the US and Europe. It comes in three shades in an an enclosed brown case with a built in brush (bonus ) and shade 2 looks just perfect!

Clinique Almost Bronzer: Something that has always peaked my curiosity. I am aware the pigmentation is light, but this looks like the perfect item during winter to build up a bit of color

Chanel Terre Epice Bronzer: I own another Chanel bronzing powder but I think this shade would suit my skin tone better.
Every woman wouldn't mind a little Chanel ;)

So there it is, my current bronzer wish list. Have you tried any of the above or have any favorites?

  14. I've heard that shiseido is a perfect one. exactly #2 if I'm not mistaken. great and natural for those who doesn't like the orange tone in bronzers.

  15. I recently got into bronzers too (after falling head over heels in love with Guerlain's Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder in Brunettes. Serious love!). That Chanel once looks absolutely gorgeous--as does the Shiseido one. I'm going to have to start digging and find out how I can get my hands on that one!

  24. Love bronzers!! NYC Sunny was my first bronzer and I still use it (although it's way too light for me), also loving Hard Candy's baked bronzers, and wetnwild's bronzers!

    ReplyDelete
  25. i have the too faced & givenchy and I quite like them both! The givenchy is super creamy, and the too faced just has great matte color - there's something about it! I am interested in trying Clarins and Shiseido too. I've had that shiseido one in my sephora shopping cart so many times! Lol
