Fact #1: I love palettes. They would come in handy while traveling (which I do a lot during June to December) and I think they are good value for my money. Fact #2: I love bronzers. They add more color to my face when I look dead pale in the morning. So when I heard there was a palette full of Too Faced most-loved bronzers, I just had to get it.
What it is:
A collection of Too Faced's best-selling bronzers.
What it does:
Go on and get your "glow" on with the Too Faced The Bronzed and the Beautiful Bronzing Kit. This couture collection of the best of the best bronzers features all the Too Faced bronzer products coveted for their glorious golden, skin-perfecting, realistic, natural fake-bake performance--and they never look orange.
What else you need to know:
The kit features Too Faced's Snow Bunny, a winter shade that brightens, illuminates, and highlights skin with a subtle bronze; Pink Leopard Bronzer, a skin-perfecting bronzer that instantly neutralizes, sculpts, and warms up a light-to-medium skintone for a healthy glow; Sun Bunny, a classic bronzer that started a revolution, glowing up skin with the ideal year round fake bake. No wonder it's a celebrity favorite! Also included is the Flatbuki brush, especially designed for on-the-go Too Faced girls to guarantee flawless application with every glamorous use.
I have medium olive skin tone and I am happy to say that all three bronzers actually work for me on different levels. Snow Bunny is my favorite. If you are dark-skinned, say NC-40 or darker, I don't think it would show up much on you as a bronzer, but you could still use it for highlighting. On my skin this powder manages to get rid of my "morning dullness" and gives me a warm glow. I like to layer it over my matte blushes too, it'd give them more "life" so to speak. When I first swatched it with my finger, I admit I was shocked. This bronzer is pretty shimmery. It's not the kind of cheap shimmer if you ask me, but still... it is shimmery. So if you're oily-skinned like me, you might want to use VERY light hand to apply it. I use the kabuki brush that comes with the palette (this brush is baby soft!!) to apply it on my cheekbones and under my eyes to brighten my face. I avoid wearing it on my T-zone as it will accentuate my oiliness during the day (not gonna be an issue if you love to touch up, but I'm such a lazy bum most of the time, lol).
Pink Leopard is more of a blush than a bronzer for me. The color is very natural; warm bronzy pink that goes on sheer on my skin. I think this wouldn't work as a contouring bronzer since it's very shimmery. If you are more of a matte person, this might not be for you. I myself haven't worn it that often, but I'm happy that they include it in the palette. It makes the palette complete, you know? I could reach to it and wear it as a blush whenever I don't feel like "bronzing" myself.
Now the Sun Bunny is the true bronzer of all three. I use it on either side on my face, my cheekbones, and my jawlines for a lovely sun-kissed look. It is highly pigmented so it could get too orangey if I'm not careful. It's definitely not as shimmery as the other two, but it rather has a slight sheen that is almost unnoticeable on the face. I think it's a good bronzer, but I am yet to announce it as my HG. I will still continue my search of the perfect bronzer, but as of now, I'm happy with this palette.
Final question, would I repurchase? I would repurchase Snow Bunny if I ever run out of it, but not the other two. I really like the glow it gives me and the fact that it's NOT orange.
So that's my 2 cents about this kit. I think for $35, it's a great deal especially that they include a super soft flatbuki brush in it. The texture of the powders is also very rich and smooth, therefore they're easy to apply and blend. Plus, it looks really cute on my vanity table. Gotta love the beachy, summery design!
