Urban Decay Baked Bronzer

Quick Review: Urban Decay Baked Bronzer

Urban Decay Toasted Baked Bronzer ($26.00 for 0.26 oz.) is described as a “bronze shimmer.” It is a warm, medium tan with a champagne shimmer and sheen. This shade completes Urban Decay’s trifecta of bronzers (the other two are Gilded and Toasted). It has a very smooth texture, but the shimmer and sheen may be too much for those who prefer a subtler or semi-matte bronzer. I’m only able to get an average of six hours of wear with this shade, though, which is below average.

Baked looks like a slightly lighter, more red-based version of Gilded. Gilded appears more orange-y, but the finishes are similar. I didn’t think they would be, given Gilded seems to have a rougher texture. MAC Golden is similar, a little more muted.

If you don't need a bronzer to wear longer than six hours, then you'll have less issues with this bronzer than I did. It has good color payoff without being difficult to apply and blend out. It's not more red-toned than the orange-toned Gilded, which makes it more suitable for cooler skin tones, but I still think it may be a bit too warm.

  1. As much as I adore Urban Decay, the idea of all that shimmer kind of scares me. I’m a matte or very subtle shimmer in my bronzer kind of girl.

  2. Audrey

    Yeah I think it seems a bit too shimmery and orange for me.

    On an unrelated note, with all the hype on Hakuhodo brushes will you be picking one up to review? Would love to hear your thoughts as your reviews are very comprehensive.

    Not a fan of shimmery bronzers. I use bronzer to make myself look more tan while still looking natural, not looking like a disco ball.

    Why do Bronzers always have to be so orange? People aren’t orange, they are tan!!

  5. ohh it looks so nice, i wonder how it looks applied on the cheeks :D i might give it a try, next time i see it.
