I love powder bronzers. Even during the winter when I’m pasty and pale, I use one over my foundation to give me a touch of color. But apparently I haven’t been using the right ones because the first time I tried LORAC’s new TANtalizer Baked Matte Satin Bronzer SPF 15, I was struck by how much better it looked than any others I’ve tried recently.
It’s a mineral-based, baked formula that you can apply wet or dry (I like the way it looks dry the best). It goes on super smoothly and without any obvious streaks and it leaves behind the most gorgeous bronzed glow. I seriously look like I’ve just spent a week on a tropical island sipping blended drinks whenever I put it on. You can also use it to contour or highlight specific areas on your face, and the SPF 15 is a welcome bonus. I would never skip my normal sunscreen, but I feel like the TANtalizer SPF just gives me an extra added layer of protection. It has a touch of shimmer to it, but nothing overwhelming (it’s totally appropriate for daytime wear). My one piece of advice when you’re applying is to use a very light touch with it. A little goes a long way and you don’t want to over-bronze.
If you’re looking for even more incentive to buy it, go check out the reviews at Sephora.com. It has a perfect 5 out of 5 stars and I can’t remember the last time I saw that. Go now and put it in your cart!
