Caramel Cutie

Fenty Beauty Caramel Cutie Sun Stalk’r Instant Warmth Bronzer ($30.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a medium-dark, yellowed brown with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable pigmentation from medium to opaque (two to three layers) with a smooth, more firmly-pressed texture, though I wouldn’t go so far as to call it stiff but rather had no powderiness and worked well for applying in layers. The powder applied fairly evenly but did take a bit of extra effort to diffuse the edges; the unevenness you’re seeing is my fault–I have some post-acne marks right in the area I apply blush and without foundation (I swatch over bare cheeks the best I can), those marks are coming through. The bronzer lasted well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.22 oz. - $136.36 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "long-wear" that is "transfer-resistant," "easy to blend, and "light-as-air" with buildable coverage that "is hard to overdo." The pigmentation was more medium to semi-opaque with some shades being nearly opaque in a single layer. For truly buildable pigmentation, I would recommend using a light hand initially or a less-dense brush to pick up and to apply the product.

The texture was lightweight, thin, and finely-milled without being too powdery, which did make it easier to control to build up coverage. Some shades were more blendable than others but none were difficult to work with. As these had a true matte finish, I wouldn't apply them over wet or still-drying foundation as that tends to make matte, powder products harder to apply and can also cause them to darken/look patchy. They applied similarly over bare skin (I'm normal-to-dry) as they did over foundation that was lightly set with powder.

They lasted between eight and nine hours on me, and it didn't seem prone to transferring if I just dabbed at it with a napkin (transfer-resistant on a powder was an odd claim to see).

I normally don’t get into bronzer that lacks a red-brown undertone, as that’s what replicates that windswept, sunkissed, just back from the beach look that I love. However, this one has a nicely neutral tone to it that I feel would look naturally melded with my own skin as a touch of sun to my face!
