The L’Oreal Bronze To Paradise Matte Sunkissed Bronzers launched back at the beginning of April, and I was excited to give one a try as they launched as part of the brand’s Paradise collection, and I love the Life’s a Peach Blusher, so I had high hopes that I love the bronzer too.
The L’Oreal Bronze to Paradise Matte Sunkissed Bronzers are a new collection of three powder bronzers, and this collection is different to the very many L’Oreal bronzers which have launched over the years.
Each of these three bronzing powders contain 84-91% ingredients of a natural origin (different shades have different percentages), which is great for a huge beauty brand like L’Oreal.
“Allow the L’Oreal Paris Bronze to Paradise Matte Bronzing Powder to add a sun-kissed glimmer to your complexion. The weightless formula avoids sinking into pores and fine lines, instead promoting a second-skin veil that appears subtle and natural.
Equipped with a matte finish, the bronzer is ideal for contouring or promoting a ‘just stepped off a plane’ glow to your base, allowing you to sculpt and carve out your features.
Buildable and creamy, the bronzer allows you to add depth of colour, depending on your desired aesthetic.“
It’s hard to find more natural bronzer formulations within the drugstore, especially if you have super sensitive skin, so the L’Oreal Bronze to Paradise Matte Sunkissed Bronzer collection is a great idea.
The L’Oreal Bronze to Paradise Matte Sunkissed Bronzers are available in the following three shades;
I love the names, they’re fun, and it’s nice to see a range of just matte bronzers. So many brands like to create matte bronzers, and then cover them in a gold overspray, but these three bronzers are straight up matte bronzers, and all three shades look beautiful.
The L’Oreal Bronze To Paradise Matte Sunkissed Bronzer is packaged within a metallic bronze compact with a clear lid, and the pan has a palm leaf pattern on the pan.
I chose the lightest shade which is 01 Tan’tation, and it’s a really great matte bronzer for pale skin. It’s a light, warm toned brown which has a soft texture.
It does kick up a little excess powder when you swirl your brush into the pan, and it’s not the easiest to blend. I think it could possibly be due to the high level of natural ingredients, but the formula isn’t as blendable as I’d like.
I’m testing lots of bronzers right now, and this particular bronzer just hasn’t wowed me. It hasn’t disappointed me either, but the Revolution Splendor Bronzer is £1 cheaper, and the formula is a little better, and it’s much more blendable in comparison.
