Over the years I have tried SO many, and these are my favourite 4. I wanted to share some swatches with you whilst comparing all of them.
- Benefit 'Hoola' - This is a matte powder bronzer which is amazing for contouring and sculpting. (Read my full review.)
- Nars 'Laguna' - This is a powder bronzer which has refined golden sparkles. It's good to add a tan to your face, and doesn't look too bad used as a contour either. (Read my full review.)
- Soliel Tan De Chanel - This is a cream/mousse bronzer, it's great if you want to avoid a cakey look and add a natural warmth to your face, perfect to mimick a tan or sculpt your face. It has tiny golden micro sparkles which are almost invisible to the eye. (Read my full review.)
- Prestige 'Glam Tan' - This is a shimmer bronzer, it's great to highlight the tops of your cheekbones, the golden flecks are very refined and add a pretty glow unlike Mac 'Gold Deposit' MSF which adds a lot of chunky glitter and has an unflattering copper tinge. (My 'Glam Tan' is in a Mac compact as the Prestige plastic packaging is utter rubbish.) (Read my full review.)
Here are some swatches to compare them all..
They are all quite similar in tone, Hoola and Laguna are cooler, with the Chanel and Glam Tan being more golden.
My ultimate favourite has to still be the Chanel, it's just amazing and I'm having a mini panic attack as mine is finished and there are stock problems relating back to the warehouse in Paris!
CAUTION: Do not apply bronzer with a heavy hand, always use a small amount of product and build it up gradually. Also, never apply powder over liquid, or liquid over powder to avoid patches.
What's your favourite bronzer?
