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'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.
