Too Faced Chocolate Gold Soleil Bronzer ($30.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium brown with warm, yellow undertones and a fine, golden shee4n. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, soft, and velvety texture that wasn’t too firmly pressed in the pan, so it was easy to blend out on the skin, but it wasn’t so soft that it was powdery in the pan. The powder applied evenly to my face, and it took little effort to diffuse the edges. It had a noticeable shimmer in its finish, but it did not accentuate my skin’s natural texture. On me, it lasted for eight and a half hours before fading slightly. The powder does have a sweet, chocolatly scent.

Tarte Park Ave Princess Chisel Palette ($46.00 for 0.95 oz.) is a new palette for spring that features four bronzing powders and two highlighters. The formulas are described as “the blendability of a cream” with the “weightless wear of a powder” that has “12-hour” wear. The brand didn’t seem to callout pigmentation specifically, though their swatches show opaque coverage (and it’s more typical for these types of products to be pigmented than sheer without saying as much). If they’re the kind of bronzing tones that you go for, the palette was nice overall. I didn’t have any issues applying or blending out the powders, they lasted between eight and nine hours (which is solid wear, just not 12-hour wear as promised), and there was plenty of product.

Afternoon Delight

ColourPop Afternoon Delight Pressed Powder Bronzer ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that was somewhat buildable, but it was hard to get truly opaque coverage out of it due to the powdery, drier texture that made it feel less smooth. I was surprised at how poorly it applied and how much work it was to buff the bronzer onto my skin. The color was barely-there, even though the bronzer is several shades deeper than my skin tone, due to so little of it adhering to the skin. On me, it lasted for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.25 oz. - $32.00 Per Ounce

ColourPop's Pressed Powder Bronzer is supposed to have a "super velvety-soft" feel that yields a "natural tanned glow." There was no mention of coverage, but the brand's promotional swatches showed full coverage. The bronzers had a soft, silky texture that was slightly powdery in the pan but tended to apply with ease, blended out nicely, and sat well on the skin. The majority of the shades seemed to have a semi-matte to satin finish, which helped them glide on and appear more natural (in finish) on the skin. The wear ranged from eight to eight and a half hours on me.

ColourPop In It to Win It Pressed Powder Bronzer ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a barely-there golden sheen. It had good pigmentation, but the texture was drier and wasn’t as finely-milled as I would have expected. I felt like it took a bit longer to diffuse and blend out the bronzer evenly on my skin. Once on, the result was nice–natural but not overtly shimmery–with noticeable warmth. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading.

ColourPop CA Dreaming Pressed Powder Bronzer ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium, golden brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely. The texture was soft, a smidgen on the powdery side, but it did not appear dry or powdery on the skin and seemed to melt on the skin as I buffed it on. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Smokey Eye Beauty

Charlotte Tilbury Smokey Eye Beauty Instant Look in a Palette ($75.00 for 0.77 oz.) contains three eyeshadows, two blushes, and a highlighter. For the right person, the color scheme and quality-level might work out, but I think the palette itself is a little disjointed–it’s warm-toned but then two of the eyeshadows are more muted and neutral. I also think the jump from the mid-tone brown to the black eyeshadow is quite a bit and felt like I desperately needed more shades in-between to make the palette work cohesively on my coloring (this did not impact the rating–just detailing my personal experience using the palette overall). I think going for light-medium and medium-to-dark neutrals and then having the black might have made it more versatile.
