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.

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.

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.

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!

NARS Angel Pride Cheek Palette ($59.00) includes four limited edition blushes (Angel Pride I through IV) along with permanent shades Hot Sand (blush) and Laguna (bronzer). The palette itself contained quite a bit of product, so there’s no worry about it not being value-packed. My concern was that the texture of the palette throughout felt stiffer, thinner, and drier compared to most of NARS’ standalone powder blushes/bronzers. All but one shade (Angel Pride III) applied fairly well to my cheeks and were not difficult to blend out, but I was expecting a more refined texture from NARS.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Blush Glow Set ($78.00 for 0.80 oz.) includes a bronzer and blush housed in side-by-side pans. Per the brand, it includes a “natural bronze hue” while the blush adds a “limitless glow.” The two worked well together, but the bronzer is quite light and was subtle on my skintone so this might be more suitable for lighter complexions if wanting to use the bronzer as a bronzer. (I liked the bronzer as a soft highlighter, which would work on light to medium skin tones.) The duo was lovely overall, but I wish the brand thought to include a deeper version or had gone with a more medium-hued bronzer that might work for more complexions. There was a brush included, which was serviceable but nothing noteworthy and not something I’d use as it was somewhat scratchy and prone to shedding.

Guerlain Chic Tropic Terracotta Bronzing Powder ($78.00 for 0.60 oz.) blends together to create a medium, burnt orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. The gold was an overspray, but the coral pieces went through the powder, and while there were only five of them, they definitely influenced the more subdued brown bronzer portion.

The new, limited edition bronzer is a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale exclusive, and the “dual-color powder” is supposed to “warm all complexions” with a “hint of coral.” The powder was soft, lightly dusty but finely-milled and easily applied, spread, and blended on the skin. It had good pigmentation that was easy to control (by using a lighter hand or a denser brush) depending on your preference for coverage. I tried to get as much of the overlay off of the powder before swatching or using it, and it seemed like there was a natural matte finish in the end–not quite matte but not truly shimmery either. The powder sat well on the skin and lasted for eight hours on me. Guerlain adds fragrance to their powders, though this particular bronzer was less heavily scented than past special editions.
