I've had a long history of battling my way through every bronzer possible, and have finally found a great contender!
NARS Laguna broke me out. MAC Harmony broke me out Bare Minerals Faux Tan worked well, but I hate loose powders. (too messy) Bare Minerals Warmth was just orange NYC Sunny too orange and chalky Korres rose powder foundation (darkest shade) meh... Smelled nice, but packaging was bulky Benefit Hoola too light and hated the packaging
I received a deluxe sample from Tarte's Glow Your Way To Gorgeous set, and I love it! The packaging is a bit tacky, but it's a pressed powder in a beautiful shade that doesn't break me out or have shimmer in it.
I absolutely love this bronzer...my sister was the one who recommended it to me. I've been on the hunt for the perfect bronzer forever and I've finally found it! I only use bronzers that are matte and have no shimmer because I like to really blend it in and use it to contour, and I feel like shimmer is way too obvious. Before this I was using one by Smashbox that was also matte but Tarte has definitely nailed it. While it doesn't have shimmer it still does a great job of giving your skin a glow, subtle or intense depending on how much you want to apply. I will definitely repurchase this when I run out!
I got the Park Avenue Princess Bronzer in a set that came with the Dollface blush! The set was a great deal! For someone having a ton a bronzers this one will certainly go a long ways even though it is small! This bronzer does have shimmer. I use the bronzer to give my face a nice bronzey glow! I was afraid that this bronzer would be too orange for my complexion but I find it perfect for me! It's long lasting and goes on very smoothly! I love the packaging. If you are on a budget, I would suggest you check out this bronzer and blush set at Sephora. Or if you want to splurge, get the full-size! =)
Best Bronzer for Fair Skin
Overall: Great for daily use of adding a sun kissed glow, can also be used to slim cheeks
Texture: Smooth with shimmer, but the shimmer isn't as obvious on the skin as other blushes/bronzers I have tried. Think of more of a satin finish. This makes it not only great as a highlight but also as a contour.
Color: Light golden brown, amazing for fair skin. I have hit a whole lot of pan, only cheek product that I have ever done that to. :D
Best bronzer ever !
I was totally not expecting to like this when i first saw it. It looks orangey in the packaging. When applied it gives you a beautiful natural bronze. It just melds with your skin. It is so blendable and easy to use. The only down side is that there is a ton of fallout.
Good brown bronzer.
I got this as a sample in order to compare it to NARS's Laguna bronzer, and I have to say, I like this one a little better. It's a true brown color, no oranginess whatsoever, with a light shimmer to it. It blends out easily, so you can't really overdo it (well you can, but you can also fix it quickly if you do). The reason I like this one better than Laguna is because I think it's slightly more pigmented. Sometimes I can't even tell that I used bronzer when I use Laguna, this one always shows up.
