Ok, so I know this is way too many bronzer for one person to own but I LOVE bronzer! Plus, I ALWAYS wear a bronzer – even if it is a super minimal makeup day. So, that is how I justified these purchases. I tried to put little <snippets> about each bronzer in case you aren’t interested in reading the whole post.
Bobbi Brown Golden Light – The color is a beautiful cool-toned matte brown. It is great for light to medium skin tones. I do not think this would work for darker skin tones.
Hourglass Luminous Bronze Light – This has become my favorite bronzer because it gives me such a gorgeous, natural but warm looking tan.
Benefit Hoola – The packaging is adorable but as I get older I wish it had a sleeker package (I see you Bobbi Brown and Nars). It’s hard to beat the color of Hoola – another cool-toned matte brown that is great for contouring or warming up the skin. Also, the brush that comes with Hoola is actually very handy – it is shaped similarly to the much-hyped about Nars Ita brush.
Nars Laguna – This looks great on the skin and is perfect for contouring or warming up the face. I would say that this is the cooler-toned version of the Hourglass bronzer. (I have two pictured because the larger one was a limited edition package – it actually seems to be a little warmer than the normal Laguna).
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil -The packaging is adorable and sleek at the same time (Too Faced is so good about that) and hello, it smells like chocolate! This bronzer is a great color, very pigmented, and long lasting.
NYC Sunny – This bronzer is REALLY good for the price. However, I have to say that this one swatched the worst on my arm. I had to really build it up. However, on my face I don’t have that same issue – it actually show up very nicely. It is a little warmer than most of these other bronzers, so it would be better for warming up the face and I would not use it for contouring. The packaging feels super cheap, but that’s because you are paying $3 for a very good bronzer. The sun design is a cute nice touch!
The Balm Bahama Mama – This is the darkest and most pigmented bronzer that I own. I have to be careful when I apply this and I tend to wear it more in the summer. If you have issues with bronzers not showing up on your skin – you should definitely check this one out! Not to mention, the packaging is absolutely adorable.
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Give Me Sun – This bronzer is definitely one of the most, if not the most, warm-toned bronzer that I own. It is stunning in the summer time. I would probably shy away from wearing this in the fall or winter, but if you don’t own it – definitely pick it up next summer!
My recommendations: Honestly, all of these bronzers are great. However, my most used are the Benefit Hoola and the Hourglass Luminous Bronze Light.
