Medium

Kosas Medium Sun Show Moisturizing Baked Bronzer ($34.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm reddish undertones and a satin finish. It had very fine, gold pearl running through the finish, so it didn’t appear overtly shimmery to my eye but had a glowing sheen as it was blended and buffed onto my skin.

The texture was smooth, silky, and not too powdery nor too firmly pressed (or baked) into the pan. It had semi-opaque coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and blended out effortlessly, though it was marketed as buildable so it seemed a little more pigmented than buildable coverage. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Because I have hit major pan on my favorite bronzer, UD Jawbone, I’ve been on the hunt for something as good, if not better. This one is IT. It has such a wonderful glow to it without looking shimmery or glittery. Just pure, unadulterated glow factor!

Hi Temptalia! You never mentioned any smell. Does your product smell, like old bitter oil? Just checking. Thanks for all what you do !
