Bronzer and I have never had the best relationship. It was wither too shiny, too chalky or too shimmery for me to even bother with it. Besides, oily skin that goes on shine-alert by mid-day, I’m more concerned with controlling oil than getting a warm bronzed glow.
That is until I met the Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer from TooFaced ($30). Packed with anti-oxidant rich cocoa powder and rich pigments not only does my oily skin get the matte coverage it needs, my complexion gets a summer-worthy glow that’s okay to rock all year long. It evens my skin tone and plays well with my favorite foundation, making it easy to use it all over. It also works great as a contouring powder, which can instantly slim your face and accentuate your features. And oh, did I mention this powder smells like a warm cup of hot cocoa? Brilliant!
The trick to keeping that bronzed look all day long? The right brush. My regular powder brush just didn’t do the job but when I switched to the brand’s Retractable Kabuki Brush($34) I noticed a major difference (i.e no super shiny nose by lunchtime). The super soft bristles distribute the powder evenly and seamlessly, without making a mess on your skin (or in that cute compact).
Have you tried this best-selling bronzer?
