Light

Vieve Light Modern Bronzer Duo ($43.00 for 0.64 oz.) includes two semi-matte shades of bronzer that were on the lighter side with the left side being lighter and more muted and the right side being richer in warmth. The powders had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, felt slightly drier and more powdery (which translated to a more noticeable powder look on skin), and lasted seven to eight hours on me.

Light (Left)

Light (Left) is a light, golden brown with muted, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well. The texture was soft, somewhat powdery, and a little “thicker” compared to most face powders on the market, so I found it could get caky when layered over medium-to-full coverage foundations, which is not something I typically notice. It wore well for seven hours on me before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to offer a "foolproof" formula with a "finely milled, soft-satin finish." The brand said that a "little goes a long way," and the pigmentation was more intense, as marketed. The textures were soft, smooth, and a little drier (not quite powdery but not silky to the touch).

The bronzers applied fairly evenly to bare skin, blended out without too much effort, and did seem to sit on my skin better than the blush range (which this is supposed to be modeled after!). I think that they can look a little powdery when layered over more matte foundation, though, and are not the most seamless applied on my skin--something about the bronzer powder was a little heavy in look once applied and blended out.

The majority of shades lasted between seven and eight hours on me.

Light (Right)

Light (Right) is a richer, light-medium brown with strong, golden undertones and a satin finish. It had rich color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without much effort, despite the texture feeling a little drier and powdery. The color photographed more red-toned than it appeared in person, though I felt like the color darkened slightly overall. It lasted decently for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
