    • Em

      I’m with you. I don’t mind having some products with shimmer in them, but I prefer products that go all over (or on large areas) of my face be matte. If I want shimmer, I’ll add it. Why don’t companies understand this?

  40. Miss J

    Favorite bronzer finish? – I don’t like anything frosted or with huge chunks of sparkle in there, but I don’t mind a bit of subtle shimmer for a natural glow. I also like matte bronzers that don’t look too dulled down.

    Favorite foundation finish? – I prefer either satin or dewy finish. Nothing overly matte and nothing overly wet/shiny/greasy looking.

    Favorite blush finish? – Matte or subtle shimmer.

  47. Em

    Bronzer: Matte

    Foundation: Natural or Semi-matte

    Blush: It depends. I love a good bright blush with a hint of shimmer (like Bella Bamba) because it brightens up my whole face but I also reach for matte blushes. As long as it’s not too shimmery or too flat, I’m happy.

    I’m too pale to wear any bronzer, even in the summer I have to mix a white foundation with a colored foundation. I’ve never found a bronzer that didn’t look orange or dirty on me.
    Dewey foundation
    And Matte blushes, occasionally satin.
    I do add a highlight, though.

  81. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Mariella Mariella

    I don’t often use bronzer but I guess if/when I do, I want something matte

    For foundation – I used to love matte finishes but now I like something a bit less dry/more dewy looking

    For blush – I love Mac’s Sheertone Shimmer blushes because the “shimmer” is subtle and more like a sheen than outright glitter
