Current Beauty Crush: Too Faced Sun Bunny Bronzer

Recently I got re-acquainted with my love of bronzers. I haven't touched them in a while because of laziness (they need proper blending unless you want to look like you got dirt on your face, you know what I mean?). So I went over my stash the other day and picked up my Too Faced The Bronzed and The Beautiful Palette. Out of the three mini bronzers in it, Sun Bunny got the least number of swipes because I was afraid of how dark it looks in the pan.

Eventually I managed to get out of my comfort zone and put Sun Bunny on using the included mini "flatbuki" brush. I was pleasantly surprised by the result! Not only did the bronzer blend easily on my skin, it also looked very natural on me. Unlike many bronzers I've tried before, Sun Bunny doesn't leave me looking orange or muddy.

where I put my bronzer on


The Sun Bunny Bronzer and the mini Flatbuki brush, aren't they cute? :)

The flatbuki brush is soft and dense. It's the perfect size for contouring my cheekbones. I've never really used it before because I thought it was too small to get anything done but clearly I was wrong. And by the way, I did a full review on the palette over here.

This is the look I wore on Saturday. I did a quick smoky look paired with pink cheeks and lips. Very simple!

  1. I need to play with my bronzers more often. I neglect them too long. I often skip bronzer since i felt its a lil too much for labwork.

  2. Ah you look gorgeousss Fifi! I haven't tried using the Zero urban decay deluxe eyeshadow all over my eyes as it seems really pigmented....but I love a smokey eye look and you always pull it off so well. Wow, how did you remember the number of these Elise false lashes?! That's the brand we were talking about how they don't have numbers or names for them right? :P
    I haven't been using bronzer (or even lipstick) much lately but I really should or else I'll never get through my makeup stash LOL
    And Sun Bunny looks really pretty on you. You have great blending/makeup skills so you could make any product work well I'm sure ;)

  5. I use bronzer for contouring and my favourite is the Sephora B01 featured in the Sculpt-Disk. I am NC30 and it matches well with my winter sallowness... ;)

  7. You look beautiful Hun! My favorite everyday bronzer is by Wet n' Wild called Princess. But I have recently been playing around with N.Y.C. bronzer in Sunny. I really like it so far. But you have convinced me that I really need to try Too Faced Sun Bunny bronzer LOL! It looks great!

  11. @Pepper: LOL I love your avatar! Cute cat. I agree, bronzer can sometimes feel a bit too much. I don't wear it everyday either, only on special occasions. :)

    @Karen: Answered you on your blog hun! Oh and, you should totally try Zero for a quick all over the lid-type smokey look. I think it's hot :)

    @Ginger: Thank you!

    @Ndoodles: I wish we got Rimmel here in Indonesia!

    @Meibalo: Nice to hear that you got a bronzer that works for you! It took me a while to discover mine.

    @Pammy: Thank you! I love Monistat! It helps to make my concealer looking less cakey too. :)

    @Alina: Thank you hun. I've been curious with Wet n Wild products. I heard good things about them.

  12. @Ruzanna: No problem, I'm a C4! :)

    @Elizabeth: Yes I do and thank you! I'll be checking out your blog too.

    @Donna: The bronzer contains shimmers but they're SO tiny and soft. They're not the type that makes your pores stand out, they're actually invisible on the skin.

    I really like your makeup!

    The small kabuki brush is so adorable, it did an amazing job for contouring. And the Too Faced powder is gorgeous!
