I have been on the prowl for a nice bronzer to give my cheekbones a nice little shimmer. I came across this Lorac Baked Bronzer when I was in Ulta the other day. It was one of those items I came across towards the front of the store by the registers…in the “let me squeeze some extra coins out of you” section. Lol! It is a mini size and it was only $8, so I thought, why not?
This product has a very nice gold shimmer to it. I love the way it looks in my cheekbones! It gives me a beautiful glow! The product applies pretty sheer, but it is buildable. It has a smooth application. The only thing that I do not like about this bronzer is that it does not last long. By the time I get home from work, the product has faded from my cheekbones. I can’t say whether or not I will buy this in a full size when I run out…but who knows, maybe I will really fall in love with this bronzer! I am still in the market for a good product that will give my cheekbones a very nice shimmer, or even a glow! I want it to match my skintone, so if you have any suggestions, let me know!!!
On Veteran’s Day, I took advantage of the HUGE sale that e.l.f. was having on their website. Everything was 50% off! Well…almost everything! It has taken me a few weeks to get around to using all of the products and writing a review. I will not review everything in this haul at once. I will review products after I use them several times.
Anyway, in this review, I want to focus on the baked bronzer and eyeshadow palettes. I purchased the Baked Eyeshadow Palette in California and Seattle. California is a palette with neutral shades. Seattle is a palette with smokier shades. I purchased the Baked Bronzer in Bora Bora for $3. I was super excited about receiving the palettes and bronzer. I thought the colors in each palette were so beautiful and for $10 each, I really couldn’t beat that! However, once I got them and opened them and tried them out, I was sadly disappointed. There was barely any pigment in the shadows. I read somewhere that the pigment was more intense with a wet brush, but that really didn’t make much of a difference. I love e.l.f. products and I am really hoping that this is just an issue with the baked formula and not their eyeshadows in general because I purchased a pressed eyeshadow palette from Target a couple of weeks ago that I have not had a chance to try out yet. I might have to turn my back on e.l.f. in that one doesn’t work out for me!
