Tower 28 West Coast Bronzino Illuminating Cream BronzerTower 28 West Coast Bronzino Illuminating Cream Bronzer ($20.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with moderate, warm undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. It had a lightly shiny finish as it never fully set and remained a touch tacky on my skin (though not in an uncomfortable way).

The texture was lightweight, smooth, and like an emollient balm, so thin and spreadable and lightly tacky. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that could be built up to medium coverage if desired. The product applied well to bare skin as well as over foundation, though it lifted up my base slightly one out of two applications. It lasted decently for seven hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.15 oz. - $133.33 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "buildable" coverage with an "illuminating" effect that is "blendable" and yields a "bronzy sheen." The formula has sheer to semi-sheer coverage, which could be built up to medium coverage, but it was easier to work with when applied as a semi-sheer product.

The texture was balmy, emollient, and lightweight with a touch of tackiness, which helped keep it from spreading too readily, but I'd recommend being gentle when pressing it onto the skin with a fingertip to avoid lifting up base products. It was not particularly prone to lifting up base products, but I had it occur twice out of 10 applications.

The product applied evenly and blended out without difficulty. The shades lasted between seven and eight hours on me before fading visibly.

these bronzers intrigue me so much! not a responsible purchase right now, but defs going on the wish list!
I love the idea of bronze draping and really meshing my highlighter, glowy blush and bronzer together.
As a brand identity tower 28 really have it down with there product concepts

Im interested but my concern with these is that the full coverage swatches look metallic. But they don’t translate that way in application?
