Talk to the Palm
ColourPop Talk to the Palm Pressed Powder Bronzer ($8.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light-medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, finely-milled texture that was lightly powdery and more prone to clumping if used with a denser brush.
I’d recommend using a lighter-hand and making sure to apply over powdered/dry skin as it tended to react to natural oils or dampened foundation. It wasn’t the most blendable shade unless I applied it over setting powder. It lasted decently for eight hours before fading a bit.

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.
