The other day I went to check my mail like I do daily and what do I see? A catalog from Ulta, with a certificate on it yesssssss! I thought it was one of those $3.50 off a $10 purchase but nope it was the certificate that you receive every few months and you get to pick a free product based on how much you spent in the past few months. They change the award products quite frequently so I didn't know what I was going to pick until I looked up Level 5 (yeah I hit level 5, uh oh blame it on the holidays, shall we?!) and the corresponding products. They had some salon services, which I didn't need/want and a few other things which didn't attract me. But then I saw this Too Faced Bronzer in the list and decided to get it and I did. This is only one of the very few products I own by Too Faced. I used the Lash Injection mascara which I absolutely hated (I know there are a lot of fans of it out there) so sort of steered away from Too Faced altogether. I am happy to say that I love this bronzer. Could it be the Leopard-ness? Possibly.
Here is what I think about...
Packaging: Do I even need to say anything?? It's so cute, just look at it. But besides being cute, it's also sophisticated. It has this little pink fabric loop on the front that you pull to open. You open it and ta da you see yourself because it has a mirror and under it it says " You look absolutely purrrfect!" What a confidence booster!
Product: Has a leopard pattern with bronze, pink and brown colors. It's pigmented and comes off as champagne-y color as you can see on my hand. It is quite shimmery so if you're one of those people who don't like shimmer on their face, then this product may not be for you. I say give it a try at Ulta or Sephora before purchasing it. I tried it on my face (forgot to take a picture, but promise I will do a look using it!) and touched up on my forehead, nose and chin, you know where sun would hit naturally and it gave my face a healthy flush and looked very pretty Obviously you can adjust the amount that goes on your face so you don't look like a disco ball :)
Note: I got this for free since I used an award certificate. Current retail price is $28.00.
I think this could be a great everyday bronzer and perfect for summer. My everyday bronzer (Physician's Formula Solar Power SPF20 Bronzer, see it in picture above compared to Too Faced one) is matte and sometimes it's nice to have a little shimmer, I think I will alternate between them. This bronzer seriously reminds me of All That Glitters e/s by MAC and I will probably end up using it as an eyeshadow too (It'll be a good dupe for it, almost) I love products that can be used more than one way!
Have you guys used this bronzer? What do you think about it?
