What bronzer did you used to love but no longer does it for you?

I’ve never been someone who uses a bronzer on the regular or really reaches for it on an off-day. I might have reached for NARS bronzers once upon a time, but I definitely prefer other formulas over NARS, like the Haus Labs Velvet Bronzer or Huda GloWissh Bronzing Powder.

I’ve gotten away from bronzers, but if I do go there lately I use the original Benefit Hoola! My old go-to was Too Faced Chocolate Soleil. I’ve never been sure if bronzer works for me in all lighting. Sometimes it looks good, sometimes it seems too warm. It’s definitely a summer-only thing for me when I do use it!

I love bronzer! Right now, I’ve ditched all powders except Gucci. ( I do not count the Jones Road bronzer I have in shade Dusty Rose.. for me, more a bronzer/blush hybrid). PMG will surely be tempting because no secret I totally love her blush formula. As with blushes, I avoid pigmented super matte cheek product and look for those with a sheerer almost satin like finish. I recently ordered a Westman Atelier cream stick and curious to see how that goes.

Physican’s formula comes to mind. I just prefer creams now, my staple is the Chanel one, but Tower Beauty’s may be my new favorite bc it’s sooo dewy. That stuff is magic. Chanel is more of satin finish.
