What's the best bronzer?

Postby ouch! » Sat Nov 01, 2008 7:34 am

Has anyone found a bronzer that is long lasting and looks natural? Thank you for any suggestions!

ouch,

I have been using clinques bronzer. It is pretty good. I recently purchased a powder highly recommended on hsn.com It is suppose to be excellent. It receives great reviews. It is from the "ready to wear." collection. 377-750 it is suppose to be awesome. I will let you know. It is not a bronzer only a powder.

Thank you 4evryoung...please keep me posted on the powder...I've never heard of that brand. I have a loose powder by lancome that I love and have used for years, but it would be nice to find a great pressed powder too. Thanks so much!

I use Clinique bronzer too, although I am still on the search for something without iridescence. Why do they have to put that in eveything?

Anyhow I use the powder one in sunkissed, and it looks good in the summer, not muddy or dirty like some can.

4everyoung -- what have you thought of that new powder you were trying? Thanks so much. I checked out the website and saw there is a bronzer from that brand also with good reviews.

ouch,

The powder is much like mineral makeup and so is are the results. Only is in a pressed form which I like much better as I tend to be a messy person.(ha-ha) This is much easier for me to handle. It has not been getting good reviews lately. It is o.k. and I am keeping mine but I am sure you could purchase this anyplace else like ulta etc. something similar. It is not so great that would I would say to rush out and buy it. I do not wear any other make-up except the powder, bronzer and blush. Take care.

That bronzer is soooo dark. If you want to look like you just got back from Miami or the Bahama's, then I suggest that otherwise there are better ones out there.

Rimmel London's Natural Bronzer in sunbronze. I love it because you can make it as light or dark as you want it. And it looks natural, and doesn't have all that fake looking glitter stuff...

I have found that Cargo makes a great bronzer. You can buy it at Sephora.

I just ordered this one:

I'll tell you what I think when I get it. The reviews I have read on various sites are almost all raves.

You are supposed to add a couple drops to your sunscreen or moisturizer...not use it straight from the bottle.

Please do let me know how this works, Terri. I'm curious what sort of shade it is -- hopefully it doesn't have the orange/red undertones that some of them do.

Update on the Dr. Hauschka bronzer. I've been using it for two days and I officially LOVE it. It is a scary dark color right out of the bottle, but a half pump mixed with sunscreen makes my skin look wonderfully healthy, but not like there is anything on it. It somehow hides imperfections while being invisible.

Since I use so many exfoliating things on my face, neck and chest I can't do the self tanner there. Using this in my sunscreen blends the areas where I use the self tanner seamlessly with my face and neck.

This is a winner!
