Makeup Geek Sunkissed Bronze Luster ($22.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a light, golden brown with a satin finish and soft, warm undertones. It had intense, opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The texture was lightweight, finely-milled, and soft without being powdery in the pan.
The new, powder bronzing formula is supposed to give the skin a “sun-kissed glow” but doesn’t say much else. I thought the subtle sheen/micro-shimmer gave it a natural finish on the skin–it did not read shimmery nor did it emphasize my skin’s natural texture. As Makeup Geek listed it, this shade would be best for fair to light skin. I get a touch of color on my light-medium skin tone, so it would make sense for someone of similar skin tone to get this only if they want a very subtle bronzer. The bronzer wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.
