    Re: Bronzer for the Bronzed!

    I second this re: The Body Shops bead bronzer, I've been using it off & on for about 12 yrs. I love it, it looks like I have a glow from within. I also like the Baked Bronzer from Urban Decay. I'm not too crazy about MAC's bronzer, I get the dirty & dull look when I use it. The Body Shop one is my fav. I'm a NC43-45 for reference.

For a DIY kinda girl ( which I am) you could also look into getting some micas from Coastal Scents and pick one or a few colors to make your own. FYI: some of these micas are EXACT dupes of MAC and HIP pigments.

    Re: Bronzer for the Bronzed!

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a bronzer with little to no shimmer? I was looking around Sephora's site and saw Make Up For Ever Mat Bronze. Do you think it'll work on a NW50 like myself?

    I'm NW45 and I tried the darkest shade of the MUF bronzer on my hand and it looked like brown chalk. I decided against it. I will say though that hand swatches of bronzer often look too light on me, but on the face they look great. So I would say try it. It can't hurt. I would also suggest the Bobbi Brown bronzer in Deep. It's matte, I've been using it everyday since I got it. I love it. And I also can't say enough about Stila Sun #3. It was my staple until BB came along.

    I do not wear golds, bronzes, rust, oranges or browns so is there really a place for bronzer in my palette?

    Or is there a true neutral / cool toned bronzer out there that will work with my blues, greys, berries and purples, even during winter?

    My story:

    I am a cool undertoned / deep winter NW45 gal. A MAC MA introduced me to MAC Raizin this summer which she used as a contour / blusher / bronzer. It was nice at the time and I even bought one but before you could blink (here in the UK) summer was over and my 'tan' was long gone. It just looks wrong now...


    i know this thread is super old and Im getting to it reall late lol.. but im nc35- nw 35 and I use raizin all the time.. summer/ winter.. it doesnt matter.. maybe you should apply it lightly.. cuz if i can get away with it.. you def can!!
    its not just MAKEUP its a MOVEMENT!!!

    Re: Bronzer for the Bronzed!

    Hey I have a darker skin tone too and I use bronzer when I like to get dressed up just regular Nars bronzer from Sephora. But on a regular day I wear bare mineral foundation and mix in just a little bit of the "warmth" bare minerals color in with it to kind of give a bronze look.

    hope that helps !

    Re: Bronzer for the Bronzed!

    Bumping because I recently got MAC's iridescent loose powder in Golden Bronze, and wow!! I've gotten quite a few compliments with it. And you only need a teeny bit.

    I want a matte bronzer to add to my collection, so I hope Bobbi Brown's bronzer will work for me...

    Re: Bronzer for the Bronzed!

    Just wanted to post an update.
    I've been wearing Deep Dark NMSF as a bronzer and it looks great. The other products I was using haven't been showing up as much because I'm much darker this summer but the Deep Dark is working for me.

    I think you will like it, at least I hope so. I love mine. Which shade did you end up with?

    Lol, I haven't gone yet. I'm waiting for traffic to die down so I can go back out tonight. I did a search and it looks like I should buy the Deep one. What do you think?

    Edit: Ok, I just read reviews from MUA and some said that BB bronzer contains ingredients that aren't suitable for acne prone skin

    Anyone use MUFE's Mat Bronzer??

    Thanks!

    Re: Bronzer for the Bronzed!

    Ok, I ended up buying BB bronzer in Deep, b/c Dark is too red. I also bought the pot rouge (I think that's the name) in Raspberry. I like both so far today.

    I also wore my sample of the oil free foundation. Not sure on that verdict though...

    Re: Bronzer for the Bronzed!

    when i was looking for bronzers i was recommend format by mac its a nice colour can has a red undertone to it and can quickly turn into a terracotta shade if you apply to much

    but really nice when just the right amount is applied i cant wait to pair it with metal rock to see how it works

    Has anyone tried any Guerlain bronzers? I really want the Brunette one in Dark. It looks so yummy.

    Re: Bronzer for the Bronzed!

    LMAO!!! You are so right.

    Also, I think my Bronzer Whore status has graduated to Super Slut because I just picked up one of the new NARS Multiple Bronzers in Rapa Nui. Fabulous. I can see this working well over foundation and under a translucent setting powder.

    I also picked up the Giorgio Armani bronzers in #1 and #8. I really want #6 too, but they were out. Anyway, #8 is great for that traditional reddish summer bronzed look. The #1 would be great for year round; it's so elegant.

    Next up are the Fyrinnae bronzers in Dark Matte and Dark Shimmer. And of course that means I need the Eco Tools Mineral Set. Wow, I really need to stop.

    Oh and if anyone is eyeing the Guerlain Sheer Bronzing Powder in Dark, just know that the Laura Mercier Bronzing Duo in Pink Bronze is reeeallly similar, so save yourself $18 and just get that one.

    Re: Bronzer for the Bronzed!

    Bump!

    Just wondering if anyone has any bronzer recommendations for NC30-35? I was using a MAC one ages ago, the colour is now d/c'd. I'm after something matte, no shimmer. Have seen a few recs for Cargo & Nars but those brands are hard for me to get hold of right now unfortunately. Perhaps MAC, Benefit, Clinique or Too Faced? Anyone?
    Thanks!!

    Just popping in to say that the Too Faced Chocolate Bronzer is boo-boo. There is no way I could make that work for me, EVER! But those of you with lighter complexions that mine might want to check it out because it smells sooooo good.

    Will Nars Casino suit my skintone? I'm about to buy it online, but won't be able to return it and don't wanna make a dodgy purchase.

    Thanks.

    What's your skin tone? Honestly, I don't use my Casino very often and when I do it is more to highlight the planes of the face. It gives a golden glow.

    Thank you, you've just saved me $30

    I bought a Wet n Wild pot of bronzer today, only $3.99. Looks nice for my skintone in the jar.
