Hey all ~~~
I want to do a post on some of the bronzers that the beauty community. Alot of girls have recommended these bronzers on blogs and youtubes. So I'm going to do a comparison between them and some of my thoughts on each of them.
Here are the bronzers:
- NYC matte bronzer in sunny
- NARS Laguna
- ELF Golden Bronzer
Lets see some swatches first:
Left to Right:
- Top left colour of ELF golden bronzer (shimmer)
- Bottom right colour of ELF golden Bronzer (shimmer)
- Nars Laguna (satin)
- NYC Sunny (matte)
- Rimmel 022 Sun bronze
My skin tone is between NC20-25. Neutral Asian skintone. I think MAC's NC foundations are way too yellow.
Rimmel Natural Bronzer in 022 sun bronze
it is a shear bronzer with a more reddy undertone with slight shimmer but once applied there aren't really any shimmer. Because it is shear it is great for makeup beginners, even without a light hand you can't really go wrong. It can be used as a contour colour. I might not use it as an all over colour as it is a bit red, might look a bit muddy.
NYC Bronzer in Sunny
it is a matte bronzer no shimmers what so ever. The main ingredient is TALC, might block pores for some people but seems to be ok for me. Lasted on my for the whole day. It can be used all over the face and as contour, it isn't really pigmented but not as shear as the Rimmel's one. the colour can be built so girls with medium skintone can still use this just need a heavy hand or build the colour a bit more to be visible.
The famous Nars bronzer, a staple for many. I bought this after a lot of reviews recommended by alot of gurus and beauty bloggers. It has a satin finish. when applied all over the face and neck it gives a really nice glow like you just had a natural sun tanning session out at the beach. I use this nearly every day for contouring and all over the face as summer is approaching. it is a true brown, no red or orange tones. Recommended for girls with light/light-medium or may be even medium skin tones. For girl with darker skin tones might have to go for Casino.
ELF Golden Bronzer
This is a really really shimmery bronzer. if you light shimmer that bronzy gold shimmer look. then this is for you. It is very nice on the cheek and the bottom left colour is a great high lighter. but besides that the other colours are just way too much shimmer. if it is used instead of a blush. it does look pretty.
So all in all .
Here's a list of bronzers from my favourite to the least.
1) Nars Laguna
2) NYC Bronzer in Sunny
3) Rimmel Natural Bronzer
4) ELF Golden Bronzer
That's all for today.. enjoy rest of the week.
see you in the next post. ~~~
