Deep (03)

L’Oreal Deep (03) True Match Lumi Bronze It ($14.99 for 0.41 oz.) is a medium brown with warm, red undertones and a soft, golden pearl. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, though it had a softer, more yielding texture that would work with a lighter touch to actually achieve the buildable coverage promised by the brand. The bronzer felt a little drier and was more powdery in the pan, but I didn’t find it looked that way when applied and blended out on my skin. As I buffed the product onto my skin, it made the finish more luminous–satiny but not overtly shimmery. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$14.99/0.41 oz. - $36.56 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "buildable" that gives "an instant sun-kissed glow" to the skin. There are three shades, and all three were very pigmented--they can be used with a lighter hand for more gradual pigmentation (true of most pigmented products). The consistency was on the softer side with slight powderiness that was mostly present in the pan, as the powders sat well on my skin once applied. The bronzers blended out easily on my skin and stayed on well for seven to eight hours on me.

I’ve had the lightest shade in the Lumi bronzer since last summer. It’s decent, even pretty, but I just don’t reach for it.

Not bad, but not blowing me away, either. I suppose because I still have enough UD Jawbone to get me through for awhile, that also makes me feel more picky, too.

Nice surface embossing. Omg, are the prices all over the place on the dupes. The TF makes it into Ultra HE at 110USD. And the CPs are 8. Has SG done bronzers yet?
