Beauty Essentials: Favorite Bronzer

Bronzers can be tricky enough.  Unfortunately for me, my favorite conveniently became discontinued a few years ago and I have been searching for “the one” ever since.  Rest in Peace, SUGAR Tropic Tan, you are still missed everyday.

With that said, I have tried just about everyone’s favorite bronzer with no avail.  These include the ever-so-popular NAR’s Laguna and Too Faced Caribbean.  My current favorite is Smashbox Bronze Lights in Suntan Matte.  I love the matte finish (and HATE when you look like someone tossed glitter in your face) and I’m grateful to have found somewhat of a replacement.  Can you tell I’m bitter?  I hate discontinued products!

What are your favorite bronzers?  Any ideas for me to try?

xoxo, Christina

    Clinique’s “true bronze pressed powder bronzer” works wonders! just use a bigger brush to apply! it is not sparkly at all and looks natural…… and it’s a huge compact with a mirror that will last you years!

    Thanks Kait! Maybe I’ll give that one a try when it gets warmer and I need a deeper color. What color do you use?
