Capri Coast

Becca Capri Coast Sunlit Bronzer ($38.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium brown with warm undertones and a golden sheen. It had semi-opaque and buildable to full coverage with two layers of product, if desired. The powder was smooth, soft without being dusty, and easy to work with on the cheeks and face as the powder blended out nicely. There was noticeable shimmer in the powder, but it produced a luminous sheen when blended out on the skin that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

The formula is supposed to have a “silky texture” with a “natural warmth.” It’s a powder bronzer that’s available in five shades–from a light-medium brown to a deeper copper-red. Overall, the texture of the formula was soft, smooth, and blendable with a couple of shades being dusty and others being well-balanced between soft and firm. The coverage was mostly opaque to opaque, so a little went a long way but the softer powder made it easy to diffuse and blend out for sheerer coverage, if desired. The formula wore from seven and a half to eight hours on me.

Saffron Sun

Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Saffron Sun Bronzer ($65.00 for 0.42 oz.) is light-medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that was easy to work with.

It’s a new shade in the Victoria Beckham collaboration (which was partially brought back recently). It’s lighter and more golden-toned compared to Java Sun from the initial release, but it performed similarly. The consistency was smooth, finely-milled, and silky without being so soft that it turned dusty or powdery in the pan. The powder applied evenly to bare skin, blended out easily, and was soft enough that it could be used with a lighter hand for sheerer coverage as well. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.

Luminous Bronze Light

Hourglass Luminous Bronze Light Ambient Lighting Bronzer ($50.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a medium brown with warm, yellow undertones and golden shimmer. The color seemed more subdued and less yellow-toned compared to the one I have from the original launch in 2015. It mostly opaque pigmentation, which was easily sheered out or used with a lighter hand (or less dense brush) for more buildable coverage. It was also buildable to full coverage with two layers. The consistency was very smooth, silky, and finely-milled with just a touch of dustiness in the pan, which did not translate to the skin once blended out. It was easy to apply, diffuse and blend, and stayed on well for eight hours.

The Ambient Lighting Bronzer formula is supposed have a “sheer, airy” feel (sheer as in texture) that give a “natural, sun-kissed glow” with the “illuminating effects of Ambient Lighting Powder” with “bronze pigments” that give it “buildable color.” The formula tends to be more pigmented (usually semi-opaque), but the textures are always soft enough that a less dense brush or lighter hand is an option for picking up less product and getting less coverage. I find that the bronzer formula tends to be less powdery compared to the original Ambient Lighting Powders, which is nice. The wear is typically around eight hours on me.

Bali Sands

Becca Bali Sands Sunlit Bronzer ($38.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a soft, light-medium brown with warm, golden undertones and a fine, gold pearl. It had good pigmentation, though the consistency was slightly dusty, so it sheered out a bit when initially applied. The texture was very soft, silky, and finely-milled, which made it easy to work with and blend out on my skin. This was one of the less shimmery and luminous shades in the line-up, but the fine gold pearl gave it a soft, satin sheen. I expect this to work well for lighter skin tones who want a warm, more golden/yellow-toned bronzer. The powder wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

Viseart Enamored Theory Cheek Palette ($45.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes a highlighter, blush, and bronzer. Per the description, the bronzer is actually listed as “sheer bronzer,” which is good, given it was quite sheer. For reference, the blush formula is also a “sheer to fuller coverage” product–sheer but buildable. I have found that Viseart’s more matte/satin cheek powders apply a lot better than they look on my arm. Ultimately, they apply better in thinner, more gradual layers than applied more heavily and then blended out. If you aren’t a fan of sheerer blushes and bronzers, I don’t think that the Viseart formula is ideal for you, even though they are certainly buildable.
