Sunset Waves

Becca Sunset Waves Gradient Sunlit Bronzer ($38.00 for 0.25 oz.) is is a medium-dark brown with warm, rosy undertones and a coppery sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, finely-milled texture that wasn’t too soft nor too firm in the pan, so I didn’t have any issues with too much product getting kicked up in the pan, but it still blended out effortlessly on my cheeks. Even though a little went a long way, it diffused so well that over-application was forgiving. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

The powder contains slivers of: Sunlit Bronzers in Maui Nights, Ipanema Sun, and Bronzed Bondi along with a Highlighter in Rose Gold. The brand says they can be used individually, but you’ll need to have small eye brushes to do so, as each strip of color was rather narrow. I found the design made it a little harder to get an even amount of each color without loading my brush up with quite a bit of product, so I found myself swirling, tapping off excess, swirling again, and then tapping off excess in an effort to get a little of each shade for even application.

Y’know the whole porridge debacle with Goldie Locks and the 3 Bears? Well, this one is my “just right” out of the 3 Becca waves. Not too light, not to warm, nor too cool. It’s perfect! (For me, anyhow!)
