Quick Review: Urban Decay Baked Bronzer

Urban Decay Toasted Baked Bronzer ($26.00 for 0.26 oz.) is described as a “bronze shimmer.” It is a warm, medium tan with a champagne shimmer and sheen. This shade completes Urban Decay’s trifecta of bronzers (the other two are Gilded and Toasted). It has a very smooth texture, but the shimmer and sheen may be too much for those who prefer a subtler or semi-matte bronzer. I’m only able to get an average of six hours of wear with this shade, though, which is below average.

Baked looks like a slightly lighter, more red-based version of Gilded. Gilded appears more orange-y, but the finishes are similar. I didn’t think they would be, given Gilded seems to have a rougher texture. MAC Golden is similar, a little more muted.

Yeah I think it seems a bit too shimmery and orange for me.

On an unrelated note, with all the hype on Hakuhodo brushes will you be picking one up to review? Would love to hear your thoughts as your reviews are very comprehensive.

Not a fan of shimmery bronzers. I use bronzer to make myself look more tan while still looking natural, not looking like a disco ball.
