#05

Victoria Beckham Beauty #05 Matte Bronzing Brick ($58.00 for 0.34 oz.) is the deepest duo of the range and included a medium-dark, yellowy brown bronzer paired with a deeper, red-based bronzer (or contour). The powders had very smooth, silky consistencies with high coverage and good longevity.

Note: $58 includes the price of the bronzer duo in its compact. The refill can be purchased for $42 (which is what is shown.)

Formula Overview

$58.00/0.34 oz. - $170.59 Per Ounce

The bronzer is supposed to "blend seamlessly, wear effortlessly, and [be] impossible to overdo." It is also supposed to have a "soft focus finish" that "blur[s]" skin. The brand doesn't seem to make any specific claims on pigmentation, though promotional swatches show them as opaque.

The bronzers tended to be more pigmented than not with many shades delivering full coverage in a single layer, though they could be used with a lighter hand to get more buildable coverage, if desired. The texture was particularly finely-milled, smooth, and silky without being powdery nor too thin or too dry. They picked up evenly with a brush and blended out effortlessly, as marketed. I'd agree that they have some blurring capabilities, too, as they seemed to soften and leave my skin look smoother rather than powdery or "flat" as more matte finishes can.

They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Terracotta

Terracotta is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm yellow undertones and a semi-matte finish. The bronzer had a smooth, silky feel to it that was finely-milled, blendable, but not overly powdery. It had full color payoff in a single layer but could be dialed down if desired as the texture was forgiving. This shade showed signs of fading after nine hours of wear.

Tawny

Tawny is a subdued, deeper brown with subtle, red undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented but remained blendable and never turned patchy on me, which I’ve encountered often with deeper, red-toned bronzer hues like this, so I was impressed at how blendable it was and how nicely it sat on my skin. It stayed on well for nine hours before fading visibly.
