ULTIMATE BRONZER ROUNDUP & RANKING | Which is the BEST?Jun 07, 2021
Hello guys, welcome back to my channel. I hope you're all having a great day so far, so in today's video I'm finally going to be able to summarize my thoughts on all of these new
bronzer-like products that have been flowing and flooding. Our inboxes have recently been a period of suntan lotion, hasn't it? I feel like we go through phases in makeup, it's like suddenly foundations come out everywhere, then it's tinted moisturizers, then everyone brings out a concealer, then everyone brings out blushes, and then everyone brings out highlights. and now it's time for the bronzer, the bronze is spilling all over the place, so it took me a while to gather my thoughts about all these bronzers, just one because there were so many and I only have one face and with bronzers it takes me a while.
It takes a while to make a decision and it certainly takes me a while to decide between the options that we have, especially because a lot of these bronzers that have come out are really good, excellent bronzers, there haven't been that many where it's just been a flop. or a pass, they've all been pretty decent or great, so it took me a while to sort through them and pick between them and decide
whichones I like the
whichones are my favorites, and which ones I'm not going to reach for anymore. I have eight bronzers to talk about today to compare and I'll rank them in order from least to most favorite.
I really wanted to include Chanel's new bronzer shade, the cream bronzer, but it hasn't arrived. unfortunately on time and I'm going on vacation tomorrow so unfortunately that one won't be included in this video but I'll update you on my thoughts as soon as it gets here and I've had a chance to try it but that one feels alone because it's a cream bronzer , it's a little different from most of the products I'm going to talk to you about and honestly, if I waited for that one to arrive by the time I got here, another one probably would have come out and we're never going to publish this video, so I thought I'd continue go ahead, okay, people are waiting, but we have the Patrick Tart bronzer contour duo, the Nars cream bronzer. wayne goss palette gucci dior marc jacobs charlotte tilbury and victoria beckham so you know we have enough to get along so let's get started like I said we have eight bronzers three four five we have eight bronzers just checking my math they're there so in 8th place oh i feel bad i feel really sad i hope you can't hear me so in 8th place is patrick tarr contour and bronzer duo i feel really bad but someone has to be there , okay, someone has to be last, that's right, but this is a cream contour with a powder bronzer.
I picked up two shades of this. I have it chiseled and sculpted. I originally bought sculpted shades, which is the medium shade. shade that is recommended for my skin tone, my medium skin tone, but this cream contour was so ashy crematory gray on me, I just couldn't use it, so I decided to try the deeper shade to see if it worked better and it did , the cream contour was much better and the bronzer was good. I prefer the bronzer in the lighter palette which is part of the problem and why I don't love this product as much as I expected because I just crave the blends. were they the other way around or I just wish the cream contour in the medium palette wasn't as ice cold as it is on my skin tone.
I know for many people it has worked absolutely fine and great, but for me my skin tone my color etc. It just can't happen, it can't happen, I look dead, so that's part of the reason it's in last place, I just can't, there isn't a palette that has a contour and a bronzer. There I love both products and the bronzer, it's good, it's decent, but it's okay for me compared to the rest of the bronzers we're going to talk about. I don't love it and the fact that the color combinations just don't work. Doesn't work for me, just ranks it slightly below bronzer.
I think it's actually pretty decent, it's nice on the skin, it's natural looking, it's a nice buildable formula, the cream contour again, the formula works really well, it's easy to blend, easy to apply, but yeah. It just doesn't appeal to me as much as some of these others, partly because the colors just don't work for my skin tone and combinations of the two in one palette definitely don't work for me, which is why it's the eighth. place sorry next the nars cream blonzer bronzer next the nars sunkist tanning cream i chose the shade casino which is the deeper of two shades because i have the powder look look what's on happening because I have the laguna powder which is too light for me, it doesn't work on my skin tone and the color is a little dull on me so I decided to go to the casino and see if that shade would work better for me.
The tone is absolutely perfect. The formula seems really very good to me. It's nice to work with, but it's very pigmented and I generally prefer these cream products to build up rather than blend because otherwise I have to be very careful with the placement of products like bronzers and contours, and this It's dangerous because there's just so much pigment that you have to use with a very light hand and if you don't, you're blending it out and it has nowhere to go, so you end up with bronzer, you know, that covers your entire face, so I would prefer it to be a little less. pigmented if anything I prefer a bronzer that I can build up rather than having to blend if that makes sense but using it with a very light hand this is beautiful to me it looks great it is very skin like natural it dries a little to a more powdery finish, which I like because other products go on top very well, they don't recover and yes, it is beautiful, the slight reservations about it why it is not a higher one because it is a cream and you know me.
I'm not really a cream product type of girl, but the second reason it definitely leans more towards contour than bronzer, depending on my skin tone and undertones, it definitely highlights contour more than a bronzer, so that I don't use it. I often definitely prefer that type of product to be in stick form just because I can be more precise and keep it where I want, but I really enjoy the formula and the shade and everything and the performance of it, but I won't reach for it. As much as some of these others simply because it's a cream and not my personal bag.
Next in sixth place is the Wayne Goss Contour and Bronzer Duo. I really like this one. I think I especially like the bronzer I bought. the medium shade, which is satin bronze, is the name. I really love it and I was very surprised and impressed because I hadn't had the
bestexperience with my first heavy shine product. This bronzer definitely worked very well on the skin. I love the luminous finish of the bronzer. I find it very soft, beautiful and very buildable. I love the nuance. Contour. I don't love it as much as the bronzer, but it's still very nice.
The only problem I have with him is him. It's quite loose in the pan so when you apply your brush there and you know the contour, I don't want to use a lot of contour, I want a very subtle and soft little amount, especially when I use powder and I find this very difficult. Not to pick up too much with the brush because it's a little bit of a looser formula so you know I have to be very light with the brush and tap it and even then sometimes I apply too much so it's not the easiest for me.
The reason it's a little lower than I expected when I first used it is because the bronzer is starting to harden. I've probably only used it three or four times and it has a very rough coating on top. I don't know if you can see it there. The bronzer has this kind of hard, scratchy layer on top that is a little irritating, so that's another reason why it's a little lower. I don't know how well it will continue to work now that that happened and it was very quick for that to happen. I'm not really sure why that would happen so quickly.
This tanner has a shelf life of nine months, so maybe. That's why maybe that's the way it's going to go bad very quickly, which is disappointing because it's expensive and there's a lot of product in there, it's 16 and a half grams, so you know over eight grams of product in both sides. the pan you're never going to beat that over the lifespan so for me that's why the color performance as far as the formula I loved it and it could have been a couple points higher but I can't use it in two months, which is all the time it takes to get that hard surface, for that reason it has definitely lost some spaces and for that reason I can't recommend this anymore because I don't know anyone who is going to get enough use it before that starts to happen maybe it's just mine maybe i just have a little bug so please let me know if you have this and you've had it for a while have you used it a few times if that has happened For you guys maybe i just have a bug so let us know know in the comments below, now in fifth place, one that used to be a lot higher until some of these others came along, so this may surprise some of you, but it's the gucci bronzer I think is beautiful that you'll notice is that all the bronzers that come above this one are matte and this is a very luminous bronzer so what I'm telling you is that I prefer a matte bronzer these days, I think.
I use, I use very luminous and bright products for dewy skin, my foundation, my primers, I use highlighters, I like bright blush, so I've definitely found that that gives some balance, light and shadow, and not just looking like a shiny tin man. as a matte bronzer, it just works for me and my preferences. It is a beautiful, very natural luminosity. I love the nuance of this one. It's perfect for what I like. I like that I can use it in winter and summer because it is buildable and I can build. I go up as much as I want or not, depending on how much sun I've had, if I'm tanner or lighter this will still work for me and I love that red tone that this particular shade has.
I love the packaging. I love it. the fact that it's refillable, which saves us money, something we always like to see, but yeah, for me it's been outweighed a bit by the fact that I prefer the finish of some of these other tanners that I'm going to talk about , but This is definitely my favorite luminous bronzer so if you are looking for a luminous bronzer this is the best one for me as you will see the others I am going to talk about are all matte, who would have thought it like that in fourth place? a newcomer that has skyrocketed up the
rankings and it is the dior bronzer.
I have two shades of this bronzer. You'll see I'm showing shades six and seven of this bronzer. I think my favorite shade right now is definitely seven, which is the warmest. two bronzes, but the finish of both, the performance of both is just beautiful, this is probably the most natural of the bronzers that I'm going to talk to you about today, so the natural skin-like finish is very undetectable on the skin if You're asking me which is the most natural and gentle of all the tanners I'm going to talk to you about today. It would be Dior, the one I would recommend if you are looking for the most natural skin, like a subtle and discreet effect. this is the one i would choose, this packaging is to die for, i love that there is very little fragrance here, it's not as overpowering as say gucci can be for some people with the burst of fragrance every time you look at the compact, this It is definitely a soft and very subtle fragrance that I am using a lot here.
You can see that the Dior logo has almost completely disappeared. It's definitely one I've sought out again and again and really enjoyed. It's newer. for my collection it definitely has the potential to go up a spot or maybe two, but yeah, for me it's very easy. It takes me a long time to get the bronze effect I want because it's very natural, very buildable, but I would do it. I'd rather go that route than apply a lot and have to figure it out, so yes, for me this is a very easy to use natural day bronzer that I reach for a lot, it has definitely disappeared from my top drawer.
That said, we are on the podium, the top three, the medal winners, so to speak, and in third place, a very oldie but a goodie, is Marc Jacobs. I love this bronzer, it's so beautiful, there's something so special about the color, the finish. effect this gives you like this definitely has a bit of a scent a hint of scent personally I love it smells like coconut Christmas sun cream that kind of smell as soon as I open it I'm on a beach somewhere I don't know why I would be doing makeup on the beach, but who can say?
Who can say? I love the big fat mirror here. I love the huge, big container that you can actually fit a giant brush up there, which you know is something that Personally, I love, I think it's a very, very natural, very natural, buildable formula, no It's something you have to be careful with, you can only apply as much or as little as you want. I love the undertone of this, it's a chef's kiss for me. I have a little red, that red tone that I love because it suits my tone and imitates the tone I wear when I sunbathe.
It's almost the colorexactly on my shoulder, so yes, this for me gives me a very natural color tone. and it just gives me a very tanned goddess look. I love the fact that she is matte but doesn't look heavy or fake on the skin, it still looks like skin so this is a winner for me. There are definitely rumors that Marc Jacobs is discontinuing his makeup line, but it seems to be up for debate. There are definitely different different reports, but you know how I am. something is discontinued if this goes away, you know, I'll grieve it for a period of a week or two and move on with my life.
I'm not someone who recommends buying ten in case it's discontinued because it's in third place, you know? So I'll move on with my life and have fun memories if that happens, but just a heads up that I may or may not be going somewhere, who knows now, secondly, a tanner who continually battles with Marc Jacobs. to be my number one, but now it's charlotte tilbury, like I said, between marc jacobs and charlotte tilbury these have been my numbers one and two since charlotte tilbury really appeared, gucci was always there or around there. I recently stopped using such a luminous bronzer so Marc Jacobs and Charlotte Tilbury have become my one and two and it depends on how I feel, where I am and what I feel like reaching for.
I definitely prefer this charlotte tilbury packaging. I love the fact that charlotte tilbury is again refillable. I live for a free refill. I just can't get enough, especially at Nando's. I only live for a free refill. I can not get enough. I love it. I love a good money saving tip, but yeah, this again is a really nice big frying pan, put a huge big brush in there, a lovely big mirror, just the background of this is again that red, you can see how red is that tone there, very nice and warm. but leaning towards red instead of orange, which is perfect for me, again, you can definitely pick up a lot with a brush so you can get that hole like, oh wow, there's a lot of pigment and then you have to blend it out, but also you can use this. very lightly, just with a lighter pressure rather than a twisting motion, press with your brush and you will find it is very easy to use with a light hand and build up and blend, it blends like an absolute dream, it is like silk on the skin , such as Smooth and perfect finish.
I love everything about this. I'm definitely on my project plan for the year and unless it's like a bottomless pit, I'm sure I'll find success with this thing I've had. for a long time and it gets used a lot and there isn't even a trace of a hard surface or a rough edge anywhere so that's what I expect from a bronzer and this one has a 24 month shelf life so you can see the problem with wayne goss is that you know the same thing, by the way, here is approximately the same amount of product 16 grams in charlotte tilbury 16 and a half, but that is between the two trays in wayne goss and this one has two one year shelf life to a shelf life of nine months, so if you just want to get the best out of a product for as long as possible, you can see why it's ranked so much higher and now in first place, and presumably it should.
Being shocked because I haven't even talked about this product on my channel. Actually, I wasn't even planning to purchase it. The only reason I did it is because so many of you were asking me about it and two, I just felt like in order to make this video as useful as possible, this one really needed to be included, so I ordered it on a whim, I really didn't I thought it was going to be so exciting, I didn't really think it was going to be that cool, but I just wanted to do it. Make sure they had as much information as possible about as many new products that have come out, but they were also asking me a lot about this, they were very curious and I can only thank them because number one is Victoria.
Beckham bronzer and contour duo. This is the product I have today. I have the bronzer and contour very lightly used on my cheeks today so I chose shade four. If you don't know, this is a very similar bronze and contour duo. the wayne goss looks a lot like the patrick tar, but both products are powder like the wayne goss, not like the patrick tar which has a cream contour, so this is the bronzer here and this is the contour. They both feel super natural on the skin, almost like they're just right. It's not almost completely undetectable, you can't see where you've applied it and where you haven't.
It is the most beautiful natural wash. It has this beautiful seamless but very natural matte finish and is the most beautiful shade. It's so natural. it has the warmth that I like, but it's not too warm, it's definitely not too cold, the bronzer is so natural, it has warmth, but it's not too warm, it doesn't lean towards contouring either, it's too cold and you have to have careful. with the placement, the contour as well is there's just not any kind of real of that super cool gray tone there, it's very, very natural, they blend beautifully, they're not too loose, so I don't have to be too careful at the I don't need too much product.
I said push your brush in instead of pumping it up for sure on both products, but your brush just picks up the perfect amount, it doesn't dump a load of product onto your brush and so you have to be very very careful, it's very easy, there really is no effect and you can just build up and build up as much as you want and it never looks powdery. I think a lot of these bronzers are matte because they are powder if you apply them and put powder on your face and you will have a powder highlighter, a powder blush, a powder contour and a powder bronzer.
You can get that very powdery, heavy look, it just doesn't look like powder on the skin, it's like it melts into the skin and becomes one. with the skin and there simply isn't any powder residue left on top, the bronzer and contour blend together like a dream. I absolutely list this packaging, it's very heavy, heavy and firm, like you have to know, give it a good squeeze. to close it it feels like an expensive handbag this is the kind of packaging i expect for this price i want a really firm and expensive feel it stands on its own it feels heavy in my hand it has a beautiful mirror that looks very elegant it has a beautiful exterior The packaging feels like what it costs, this is also refillable which I love because you will never have to pay that high price which is partly to buy the packaging, you will only have to pay for it once and then you can buy the refills, which I love.
The packaging was really nice, the shipping was excellent. I was very impressed with my first purchase from the brand and would definitely convince me to make more so far. I love it and it's my current number one, so finally here are all the samples. next for you we have the patrick tar this is the lighter contour and the bronzer the deeper contour and the bronzer I put the two cream contours next to each other so you can see but this is the patrick tar duo lighter and more deep so we have the nars cream bronzer, then we have the wayne goss bronzer and contour, then we have the gucci, then we have the dior shade six and shade seven, then we have the marc jacobs, then we have the charlotte tilbury and then finally victoria beckham bronzer and contour so there you have it this is my round up and my
rankingof all these bronzers that have been knocking down my door recently like i said i'm so sorry i couldn't include this.
Should I have time to get to know it well enough to include it here? But of course I'll let you know my feelings and how I'm doing with it as soon as I'm here and have had the chance. to use it a few times and gather my thoughts on it. I hope this was helpful. I would love to see you in the future video. Otherwise, take care of yourself for now, buh buh, bye.
