Winter is right around the corner and you know what that means – bronzer season! If you’re anything like me, bronzer is your go-to during the winter months. I have tried every bronzer under the sun (pun intended) and will review four of my favorite options for you in all price ranges – depending on how happy your wallet is feeling!
1. Physicians Formula Bronze Booster: $14.95
Beauty of this is convenience – can be purchased at any drugstore! Packaged in a metallic bronze plastic compact, similar in design to the presentation of Guerlain, this bronzer comes equipped with a mirror and small compartment with a flat brush. The brush itself, nothing to fall head over heels for – but let’s be serious, that is expected with any brush included with a product! Even if just for show, I’ll take it! It provides an instant and lasting tan that blends easily to your desired level of bronze. The lightweight powder glides on for a smooth and even looking glow.
2. MAC Bronzing Powder: $24
This was my go-to for years! The golden specs throughout (do not be alarmed!) leave a nice, sheer glow with a natural finish. This bronzer can double up as a contouring powder, as well, depending on the shade you buy. Win/win!
3. NARS Bronzing Powder: $34
A cult classic! I’m willing to bet you can name at least 10 girls off the top of your head that swear by NARS Laguna. A universally acclaimed color, it works great for contouring as well as an overall bronzer. Subtle shimmer found throughout in this one as well but produces a much more matte finish.
4. Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Moisturizing Bronzing Powder: $50
The current staple in my makeup case in the color “63 Terre Ambre.” A little goes a long way with this product so consider it an investment! Blends well, creating an illuminating natural glow. With just the right amount of sparkle, it never leaves an orange or dull finish – and did I mention it smells like roses?
