Now, here’s a colour close to my heart. First I have to say MAC’s Golden Gaze (LE/Semi-Precious). I also really like Too Faced’s Push Up and Full Moon and can’t leave out Maybelline’s Bad to the Bronze. I don’t have any bronzers that are “bronze” (they’re mostly matte and brownish) but I think MAC’s By Candlelight MSF might count as “bronze”-ish (maybe pinky bronze? coppery pink?)

Like silvers & golds, bronzes are not something I deliberately buy. If they happen to come in a palette, I’ll use them, but not on a regular basis. I know I own several, but I can’t think of any off the top of my head that I really like. NARS Paramaribo has caught my eye, but I haven’t decided either way on it.

xamyx   I almost posted Paramaribo but I’m not sure if the darker colour is red-toned enough to qualify. I think NARS’ Surabaya (particularly Surabaya II) definitely would fit: http://www.temptalia.com/nars-surabaya-eyeshadow-duo-review-photos-swatches  It’s another pairing or shade that’s very under-appreciated, imo.I’d also like to nominate the original Guerlain terracotta bronzer. 

I *love* red, burgundy, plum, etc for eyeshadows, but for some reason I just can’t get into red-based browns. I much prefer brass to bronze.

I don’t have a lot of make-up in bronze… There are bronze shades in a couple of my eyeshadow and bronzer palettes that I use for professional use, but definitely nothing in my personal kit. I do have a cute copper-colored Gosh eyeshadow that I often use. I guess that’s close enough to bronze 🙂

My favorite bronze nail polishes are Truth and Beauty’s (Forever 21’s) Bronze Medal nail polish and Burnished Gold nail polish! They are super budget friendly but pretty great quality! I probably have at least a dozen bronze toned eyeshadows! :>
