Bronze me up!

I felt like I cheated by just doing blushes the other day, so I also did a quick post on all the bronzers in my collection.  I don't have very many just because I'm naturally tan all year long and don't need a lot of bronzers to highlight my face. 

NARS - Casino
I didn't bother to take a picture of this bronzer bc I hit pan ... I don't mean like you can see a little of bit of the pan through the bronzer, BUT there is no bronzer left because I hit pan lol

Cargo - Medium
I got this in a travel size kit a while ago and I really like it. It's a matte bronzer and it's a little darker than the other ones I own, so it shows up really well on my skin. I'm just not a fan of the packaging bc the lid is hard to open sometimes.

NYC - Sunny
This is the favorite coveted drugstore bronzer. I don't know if I'm convinced that this bronzer lives up to all the hype. I don't dislike it, but I'm not totally in love. I like that it's matte and the texture is super smooth. It gives a good finish without being muddy.

ELF - Warm Bronzer
I bought both the warm and the golden bronzer from ELF and I'm not a huge fan. It's too shimmery for me and it doesn't last very long. I also don't think that the colors blend really well together. 

Benefit - Hoola
This is one of my favorite bronzers. It's matte and gives a nice color without making your face look dirty. The packaging is the standard paper box.

Laura Geller - Honey Dipped
I got this bronzer in my June birchbox and it's quickly gone to the top of my list. It's a beautiful color for contouring and highlighting certain parts of your face. It's not matte, but it doesn't have enough shimmer where it over whelms you. It gives you a nice glow!

Fusion Beauty - Illuminating
I bought this from TJ Maxx because I was interested in trying out Fusion's make up. I absolutely love their lipglosses and I was hoping to love the bronzer. I don't know what happened to my bronzer but the texture completely changed when I started using it. It got that weird hardness on the top that certain powders get. 

Stila - Shade 02
This was the first bronzer that I ever purchased and it will always have a place in my collection. I like this bronzer bc it has sunscreen, SPF 15. It's also less of a bronze color and more of a golden orange color. This is really good for highlighting certain parts of the face as well.

Physician's Formula Cashmere Wear - Light
The texture of this bronzer is super smooth and I would go as far to say that it was creamy. BUT I hate it! There is so much shimmer in it and most of it doesn't even stay on your face. At the end of the day, I have more shimmer on my clothes and hands than on my face. And it's the annoying, won't wash away kind of shimmer.

Milani Baked Bronzer - Golden
I'm undecided about this bronzer. I want to love it, but this bronzer is super shimmery as well and it's hard to control where the shimmer is when you apply it to certain areas. 

Hard Candy So Baked - Tropic
I don't like the color of this bronzer very much. The color is muddy and sometimes if applied wrong, it makes your face look dirty. I wanna try the other colors just because some bloggers compare this to the MAC ones.

Two Faced California in a Compact - Beach Bunny
I've had this bronzer for a long time and it's still one of my all time favorites. I don't know if they still sell it, but I got this one at Ulta. There's isn't just browns in this compact but lighter pinks and peaches as well. So when it all blends together, it makes a nice flush.

Stila - Garden Bliss All Over Shimmer Powder, LE
This is limited edition and I'm not sure this can be considered a bronzer, but I threw it in anyways. I like this a lot and I think that they should make it apart of the permanent line. The flowers are super pigmented and when swirled together, it's a shimmery pinky brown. Perfect for highlighting.
