Bronzers for Blush Addicts.

Hope all you beauties are doing well :)

Today I wanted to share with you all blush addicts or bronzer addicts some bronzers that I love to wear as blush :)

I'm pretty tan even in the winter time so I do not put bronzer all over my face, instead I like to use them to give me a nice glow.

Bronzers are great to add depth through contouring as well.

The Bronzers I will be discussing can be used as a contour, but I perfer to use them as blushes.

Now lets take a look at my new addiction ;)


M.A.C Bronzing Powder in Refined Deeper Bronzer

When I bought it at M.A.C the lady was telling me it might get discontinued, it is currently not on the website so I'm not positive if it is still in stores.

M.A.C used to describe this a hot bronze with low-shine pearl finish. 

This used to be M.A.C's darkest bronzer. This bronzer does have golden shimmer, but once applied it gives a beautiful bronzed cheek <3

M.A.C Bronzing Powder in Solar Richie LE

I depotted this bronzer and when I did I made a small hole in it :(

Sadly this bronzer is Limited Edition from the Style Warriors Collection.

It is being repromoted in an upcoming M.A.C collection so keep a look out!

I used this bronzer mostly in the winter when I'm pale.

I think these shade would work great on lighter skin tones because it is not to dark, but it provides just the right orangy-bronze look to the cheeks.

The color can be built up without looking muddy and it does have smaller shimmer then Refined Deeper Bronzer.

NARS Laguna Bronzer
This Bronzer is probably the most controversal within the Beauty Community. 

Others consider it a Holy Grail products, while others think its nothing special.

Personal I really like this bronzer. 

Nars describes it as "Diffused brown powder with golden shimmer" which is exactly what it is.

I like how it looks in the cheeks because it gives a natural glow <3

NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny
I was hesitant to buy this bronzer because I've seen swatches and thought it was going to show up on my skin...I was really wrong!

This bronzers is completely matte and for it to be $3 its pretty amazing!

I like to wear matte brozners on days where its raining or snowing since its so gloomy I really don't lean towards anything with shimmer...guess that's my New Yorker way of thinking!!! lol

What I love about this bronzer you can use a heavy hand! The more you put on the more it will show on them cheeks!!

e.l.f Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
 Honestly, you can not go wrong with this bronzer! It is darker then Nars Laguna in the pan.

This color is a dark brown with small golden glitter that makes for a beautiful glow!

Black Radiance Bronzer in Glow
I discovered this bronzer through the lovely Jomakemeblush blog post. I love her blog and if you don't follow her def do!! Here is her review on the bronzer: jomakemeblushdotcome

This bronzer can be found in a variety of drugstores. I purchased this bronzer at Rite Aid for I believe 3.99 or 4.99 I don't remember.

I love the face that this bronzer is matte and the color is so unique.

The bronzer is a carmel-orange color and when applied to the cheeks looks great paired with an highlighter <3

What is your favorite bronzer to wear as a blush? xoxo
