Hello my loves, I have another review for you all today. Man I have been churning out the reviews lately, yall are going to start calling me Ashley the Review Guru! LMAO. I just like to do reviews, especially on the more expensive products because I want you guys to get the most bang for your buck.
So enough chit chat! As I said in my NARS lippie review, the company Apothica sent me a gift card to purchase some items. My second item was this bronzer by Too Faced. This was my first product from them and I have been obsessed with bronzer lately so I said why not?
TOO FACED CHOCOLATE SOLEIL MATTE BRONZING POWDER $29
OK, Too Faced has many bronzers but I was drawn to this one over the other ones because I wanted something that would show up on my skin. I wanted the Pink Leopard bronzer sooo bad but the swatches were so light I didn't see the point.
*The packaging is SO cute! Like, totally adorable. I love it so much. Too Faced is a company like Urban Decay or Benefit for example, they really put thought into what girls like and what is attractive to our eyes. As much as I love MAC, their packaging is sooo blah. Just imagine if all of the MAC packaging was still the same, except instead of black it was magenta! *Perfection*
*This bronzer has the standard 10 grams which is good. Most people who use bronzer use it daily so you want a good amount. It is the same size as my MAC bronzer or Milani bronzer.
*It really smells like chocolate! I guess that could be because it is made with real cocoa lol. The smell is lovely.
*OK, now usually I am pretty good at picking products but I FAILED miserably with this one. I researched and everything but it just doesn't do ANYTHING for me.
*The color is kinda brown, a little darker than my face powder but lighter than my other bronzers. When I put it on it just looks ruddy and blehh.
*I think this bronzer is perfect for my lighter skinned dolls, like olive complexion and lighter.
OVERALL I GIVE THIS PRODUCT A C-
This product did get high reviews so if you are lighter skinned I'd go for it but for my darker babies, nope! That is really why I stick with MAC because they really consider women of color when creating their makeup. I won't give up on Too Faced though, if some of my women of color have any good bronzers from them let me know! Bye my loves.
