Salt New York Deep Sculpt + Bronze Crème Tint Review & Swatches

Salt New York Deep Sculpt and Bronze Crème Tint


($16.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep, plummy brown with subtle, cool undertones and a natural sheen. The texture was lightly emollient, thin, and more like a traditional cream blush, so it never fully dried down and always had some dewiness to its finish.

It had sheer to semi-sheer pigmentation that was buildable to medium coverage with two to three layers. The product applied fairly evenly to my skin and diffused well without too much effort, but I noticed this shade wasn’t as easy to blend as other shades. There were some signs of wear after seven hours.

P.S. — I had serious, cystic breakouts on my lower cheeks/above jaw area (through August 2020) that left a lot of post-acne marks, which are finally looking more faded (as of February 2021! and these photos were shot in December 2020), but as a result, I have found that some of the brownish-toned products, like this one, don’t look as even at a glance because of my underlying skin unevenness–but as I do for all products I test, I review based on the time(s) I test the product, which is usually at a later date than when I took the photos for the review.

Formula Overview

$16.00/0.15 oz. - $106.67 Per Ounce

The formula is described as "buttery soft, easy to blend" and is supposed to have "sheer, buildable coverage with a soft, skin-like finish." Though it's available in three types--highlighter, contour/bronzer, and blush--they formulas do not differ dramatically in terms of performance and feel.

It had sheer coverage that was buildable to more medium coverage, but getting full-on opacity didn't seem like it was really in the realm of possibilities, so those who either need or want greater, truer-to-pan coverage may not find it as workable. I'd recommend sticking with deeper shades for those who need or want more coverage, too, as the lighter shades were less buildable.

As a cheek product, the formula applied evenly and blended out well on bare skin as well as patted over base products as it wasn't a formula prone to lifting up complexion products. The finish was dewier, though it seemed to soften a bit after an hour or so of wear. They wear was between six and seven hours before there was noticeable fading and/or light movement/slide. I had the best wear when applied over a more matte foundation as compared to bare skin or a dewier/more luminous foundation choice.
