BECCA SUNLIT BRONZERS
New, on Sephora shelves are the Becca Sunlit Bronzers . The full set of five bronzers made it to my doorstep a couple of months ago and they have been in high rotation in my daily make up picks.
Ive been quite a bit afraid of bronzers in the past as they have all tended to look quite orange and muddy on my pale skin. But as of late Ive been using them more (quite subtly) to bring some warmth into my skin. So when the full set arrived, I was thrilled to say the least.
Each of the five shades are vary in depth of colour and all with neutral undertones and are inspired by five locations that make you think of sun, sea and bronzed bodies.
From left to right
Bali Sands is a soft warm brown, that looks like a soft, creamy beige and is best suited to fair skin. Capri Coast is a warm golden brown, with a slight golden radiance which is best suited to light to medium skin tones. Bronzed Bondi (hooray for an Australian representative) look slike a natural tan on medium skin tones, Becca describes this shade as “amber” Ipanema Sun is best for medium to dark skintones and still looks quite subtle in the pan but is more pigmented than some of the other shades. It can best be desrribed as a medium amber shade. Maui Nights is the darkest shade available and is incredibly rich in tone.
My fears of that oompa loompa look were quickly diminished as I played with all the shades as the powders imparted a pretty warm yet still neutral look to the skin rather than that terracotta brown that can tend to look really orange on anything but medium skin.
The thing that I ended up loving most about the Becca Sunlit Bronzers was the actual formula, as with all Becca products, the powders are silky smooth. The actual pigmentation was not too heavy and definitely buildable so that you can achieve varying depths of bronzing just from a single pan. I havnt experienced any patchiness as the powders blended well with blush and highlighter to create a seamless glow to the face.
In the pan the formula looks more or less matte, but upon the skin the formula shows just the slightest bit of glow, we arent talking shimmery bronzer more like a matte formula with a very light glimmer (Im not sure that makes sense)
I love that as usual Becca has included a range of shades for different skintones rather than the one or sometimes two shades a lot of brands provide.
The Becca Sunlit Bronzers are available now online and instore at Sephora Australia and retail at $64.
