Shady

Kaja Shady Beachy Stamp Blendable Liquid Bronzer ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light-medium brown with moderate, warm orange undertones and fine, golden micro-sparkle strewn throughout a more semi-matte to satin finish. At glance, it seemed like it didn’t have sparkle, but it definitely did, which became more pronounced when applied and diffused over my skin. It had medium, buildable coverage, which was as described, that could be mostly opaque with two to three layers of product.

The texture was lightweight, creamy with moderate slip, and definitely felt more wet as it was initially applied to bare skin. The formula dried down quickly, but it wasn’t a lock-into-place kind of dry down, so I was able to blend out the edges even after it appeared to dry down (similarly, it wasn’t transfer-proof!). The product worked well over bare skin as well as patted on top of foundation, but the stamp worked best for getting an initial layer and not so much for blending as it was stiffer to work with and lacked the give of a good sponge applicator. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.17 oz. - $141.18 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "blendable, buildable" for a "sun-kissed glow" with a cream-based (cushion) formula. It comes with a stamp applicator, which certainly deposits a star-shaped pat of product, but one can also use fingertips or a separate brush if desired! The stamp can work well for getting an even layer of product, but I preferred fingertips or a brush for diffusing and blending it out over my skin as the stamp was fairly firm and inflexible.

The texture was lightweight, very creamy and emollient to the touch, but it spread easily over bare skin and felt a lot less creamy as soon as it came into contact with my skin. I didn't find it was a true cream-to-powder formula, but did dry down fully and did not feel tacky. The formula seemed to work well over bare skin as well as layered on top of foundation as it didn't lift away my base. The coverage was semi-sheer to medium, buildable (as described) and lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

There was a sweet, tropical fruit scent to the product, though I didn't notice it while worn.

This one, much like Fenty Macchiato, has a naturalness to it that I like very much. Whether or not either one would be deep enough for me, I don’t know. I do believe I can get away with Macchiato with no problem, as it works on Alicia @ kinkysweat.

The finish is beautiful on your skin. Would I be able to forego the sponge and just use a small stippling brush right into the product pan? Or do you really need to press the stamp in there to release product?
