I have really been loving Tarte as a brand recently, and I ordered the Tarte Breezy Cream Bronzer in a recent haul, when they had a 40% discount code on, which was just too good to pass up.
We’ve seen a lot of new Tarte launches in the last few months, but this new cream bronzer actually launched back in March 2020. I didn’t order it when it first launched, as I didn’t know if the shades would suit me, but when they launched the Tarte Breezy Cream Bronzer in a mini size, I decided it was the perfect way to give it a go..
I love it when beauty brands launch mini sizes of their products, especially their newer launches. It’s always fun to try new beauty products, but it’s always a risk with whatever you try, that you perhaps won’t like it.
Which is why miniature sizes are perfect, as they enable you to try the products, but you haven’t wasted as much money, if you decide it’s not for you.
Plus, miniature sizes are a lot more travel friendly, and with products like the Tarte Breezy Cream Bronzer, cream formulas expire a lot quicker than powders, and you’re more likely to use it up when it’s a smaller size.
The Tarte Breezy Cream Bronzer is described as being a vegan, waterproof bronzer, and has a buildable, cream formula which claims to apply effortlessly for the perfect just-back-from-the-beach glow.
This bronzer has a velvety cream formula that claims to apply easily as a cream and dries down to a natural-looking matte finish for a healthy-looking bronze.
Tarte have created the bronzer with slip grip technology which is powered by marine plant extracts, coconut and sodium hyaluronate, so the formula glides on like silk while smoothing, softening and hydrating skin.
Even though this is the miniature size of the bronzer, it’s a really decent size, and there are many brands that give you less than 6g of product for a full sized bronzer, so I think £14 is actually a great price.
There are three different shades to choose from, when purchasing the full size; Seychelles (matte bronze), Grace Bay (deep matte bronze) and Sunset Beach (rich matte bronze).
Although, the miniature size of the bronzer is only available in one shade which is Seychelles, and that’s the lightest of the three shades they do. Although it is actually quite deep, which surprised me.
The other two shades must be very deep, for this shade to look so dark, but I can make it work if I use only a tiny, tiny amount of product.
It’s nice and creamy, and blends effortlessly, and I’ve found the Zoeva 110 Face Shape Brush to work well for both applying, and blending the bronzer out. It is completely matte, but it has a satin finish on the skin, giving a nice yet natural bronze to the skin.
