ColourPop Rodeo Drive Pressed Powder Bronzer ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm, rosy undertones and a natural, matte finish. The texture was soft, slightly powdery, and more prone to sheering out on the skin. I loved the color of the bronzer but wish the consistency was better; there was something about how it sat on my skin that seemed like the color pulled into my pores and looked a bit splotchy. It was not noticeable from a normal viewing distance but could be a deal-breaker for some. It had good color payoff in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage. The powder stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading.

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.

Vol. 3 (Holiday 2017)

Hourglass Vol. 3 (Holiday 2017) Ambient Lighting Edit Palette ($80.00 for 0.29 oz.) contains two Ambient Lighting Powders, one Ambient Bronzing Powder, two Ambient Lighting Blushes, and one Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder. The palette should work well for someone who likes the Ambient formula, as I felt like the formulas were consistent with the standalone shades I’ve tried in the past.

I know in the past, the value of the Hourglass palettes has been an issue, so I did the math for these – each powder was listed as 0.049 oz. each, which is comparable in size to last year’s palette. The breakdown is: $12.88 worth of Ambient Lighting Powder, $6.28 worth of Ambient Bronzing Powder, $24.83 worth of Ambient Lighting Blush, and $11.64 worth of Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder for a total value of $55.63. It might still be worth it for someone who rarely finishes their products, would not buy these products individually, and/or travels often.

I’m not sure what the release date for this palette is at all retailers but imagine it will be in the next few weeks.

Sweetie Pie

Too Faced Sweetie Pie Sweetie Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer ($30.00 for 0.47 oz.) is a soft, medium brown with warmer undertones that were slightly rosy overall. There was an overspray, which would result in a more golden, shimmery finish initially, so I tried to remove using a brush but still found a lot of it leftover, so I used a paper towel and tried to rub away several layers of product for swatches and application swatches. Despite that, though, there still seemed to be a bit of pearl that gave it a more semi-matte to satin finish.

The bronzer is supposed to be a “radiance-boosting” powder with “blendable, intense color payoff” for “universal warmth.” It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, slightly dusty texture that was very blendable and easy to work with on the skin, but it was prone to sheering out a bit so the functional color payoff was more semi-opaque and buildable. The color ran lighter, so I would not expect this to work as a bronzer on medium-tan and deeper skin tones. The bronzer lasted for eight hours on me before fading slightly. It had a sweet, peachy scent but it did not linger noticeably on my face.

Private Party

ColourPop Private Party Pressed Powder Bronzer ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium, golden brown with a satin sheen. It had nearly opaque coverage but the product was more prone to sheering out on the skin, so it ended up being medium, buildable coverage functionally.

The texture was more powdery to the touch and felt drier with a thinner consistency compared to the powder highlighters that the brand just released alongside the bronzers. It was incredibly blendable, though, and easy to work with. I think someone who prefers more buildable coverage and likes lighter bronzers will find this right up their alley. The finish was glowing without being shimmery. On my skin, the bronzer stayed on well for eight hours.

Bits and Pieces

ColourPop Bits and Pieces Pressed Powder Bronzer ($8.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a dark, rosy brown with subtle, golden micro-shimmer over a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The powder was soft, slightly thin and a little powdery to the touch, but it blended out easily on the skin and sat well on it, as it did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture nor did it appear dry or flat. On me, the bronzer stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

Her

ColourPop Fem Rosa Her Pressed Powder Cheek Palette ($15.00 for 0.33 oz.) includes a highlighter, blush, and bronzer housed in a slim, cardboard palette. All three shades were pigmented, long-wearing, and fairly easy to use, though the blush was a bit harder to blend out compared to the other two (but not a challenge). I suspect that the shades themselves will not appeal to all, and the highlighter is certainly a color we have seen often enough that you may have a dupe already!

P.S. — Yes, mine arrived broken, but there was no sign of damage on the box nor was it improperly packed, so I’m not sure what happened!
