You must be getting tired of my over-the-top LOVE for Kevyn Aucoin’s Sculping Cream! If not, let me talk some more about it: this product, available in Kevyn Aucoin The Contour Book The Art of Sculpting + Defining Volume II, has singularly been my favorite product of 2016 and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. Another bronzer that came close recently and, in my own mind, should be more publicized is Perricone MD No Bronzer Bronzer (SPF 30). This liquid formula is truly amazing and yet, there is barely nothing on this product anywhere. It’s a real shame since it’s such a wonderful one; so let me present my #2 on my list of preferred cream/liquid bronzers…
✮ This is my long overdue Review ✮
What it is:
An innovative serum designed to contour youthful definition while imparting an elegant veil of warm color and protecting with an SPF 30.
What it is formulated to do:
No Bronzer Bronzer mimics healthy skin pigment with one universally flattering shade and diffuses imperfection and sun damage with vitamin C Ester. When used as a contouring serum it accentuates youthful definition. Mix No Bronzer Bronzer with No Foundation Foundation to personalize color and achieve an endless number of shades.
-Suspension Technology: Ensures optimal delivery of active and unified application of pigment and minerals with a breathable second skin effect.
–Non-Chemical Mineral-Based SPF 30 with Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide: Protect skin from UVA and UVB rays.
-Vitamin C Ester: Helps to brighten the skin and address visible sun damage.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
At Sephora : $45CAN for 0.3oz
♥ Effortless blending properties,
♥A multitasking product that can be use alone to bronze your face, or mix with your foundation to add a summer glow richness,
♥ Sunscreen feature: Loving the SPF 30 (Mineral broad spectrum sun protection),
♥ A little truly goes a very long way; Two small drops are enough to cover practically all your face,
♥ Gives a healthy glow without being shimmery or greasy looking,
♥ Doesn’t break me out!,
♥ Fragrance-free bronzer (even with the extra sunscreen protection),
♥ Cruelty-Free (source Paula’s choice),
♥ Ideal for my complexion; It’s NOT orangey looking 😉
♥ Only one color available (suited for light to medium skin tone only),
♥ It’s a liquid formula (not a deal breaker for me but it’s worth mentioning).
If you are essentially searching for a natural luminous glow, this is a great bronzer to try. If you are fair-skinned like me, you will raise an eyebrow when putting a dot on the back of your hand (it’s quite dark) but to my surprise, if applied in small amount, it blends perfectly to this bronzy, radiant shade. It’s such a unique product: it adapts to your personal colouring; add a little bit more and the color becomes suitable for medium skin toned girl. Also, I can’t say enough on its blending properties and how fast it dries on the skin (no oily cheeks to report).
Price wise, it’s not bad at all considering that all is needed is two dots to cover my forehead and cheeks area.
Changing my powder contour/bronzer product combination to a cream or liquid formula made such a huge difference on my makeup. I feel that using more watery/creamy products makes me look more youthful! Even though these discoveries are quite recent, it’s definitely not just a summer fling since I don’t ever see myself going back to powder. Cream products have become my mature skin’s BFFs!
Do you have a favorite cream/liquid bronzer that I need to try ?
