High End Bronzer swatches

Here are some swatches I made of a few high end bronzers I have. Might be helpful for comparing a few shades!

 

From left:

  • Smashbox Contour (from Master Class Palette Color & Contour)
  • Smashbox Bronzer (from Master Class Palette Color & Contour)
  • Too Faced Chocolate Soleil
  • Too Faced Endless Summer
  • Too Faced Sun Bunny (two swatches, one for each side of the bronzer)
  • Benefit Hoola
  • Hourglass Radiant Light (from the Ambient Lighting Palette)
  • Pop Beauty Sunkissed Bronzer in Secret Sunshine

Thanks -- this is really helpful!

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

You're welcome!

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

Thanks for sharing this, BuxomBabe80! Smiley Happy Benefit Hoola is still my favorite! What's yours?

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

My pleasure! I really like the Sun Bunny Bronzer. And so far I like the Contour color from Smashbox. 

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

Thank you for posting these! I love comparing all the shades because you can see how vastly different the bronzers and contour shades are.

I like seeing things like this for that reason too, Melissa!

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

Thank you!  I didn't realize how dark the one side of Too Faced Sunny Bunny is.  I currently use Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil, but I might have to pick up the Endless Summer or Hourglass Radiant Light ones for winter time when my skin is a little paler since they look a little more subtle. 

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

Endless is pretty subtle, and Hourglass is even more so. Hourglass is really pretty as a sheer wash of color. I'm glad I bought it in the palette!

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

Thanks, @BuxomBabe80 !  This is great!  I'm very light so I don't really pay attention to bronzers.  I didn't realize there was such a range available.  I really like Sun Bunny.  I think I'll swatch it the next time I go to Sephora!

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

You're welcome, Titan06! I'm also super fair so I don't often pay attention to bronzers either. Some of these I picked up samples of and have been pleasantly surprised by! Sun Bunny is really pretty and has a satin finish. Not good for contouring, but great for adding a little color to the face!

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

@BuxomBabe80... This is really extremely helpful, thank you so much!!!

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

My pleasure, Yuumei!

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

Thanks so much for posting( it is especially  helpful since I have a very similar skin color)!

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

Great! I'm happy to hear you found it useful! I think it's harder to find bronzers when you are really fair skin. I have purchased so many that were just too dark, too orangey, too muddy for me. 

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

This is helpful! I'm so pale, bronzers can be a big gamble for me. Radiant Light looks beautiful, I need to wear it more.

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

I feel the same way about Radiant Light. It's something that is pretty and subtle on me, which is the bronzer look I prefer. Smiley Happy

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

This was so helpful! Thank you!! *adds hoola to cart*

Re: High End Bronzer swatches

You are quite welcome, Chickibum! Hoola is probably one of my least favorite. It is too orange/muddy looking on me. Smiley Sad

Really Helpful...Tx Buxom! Smiley Happy ~KAM
