I love bronzers but finding one that works well for my pale skin is so hard! E.L.F. Studio Golden Bronzer seemed light enough to suit fair-skinned girls, so I couldn’t wait to try it. As you can see, mine was a bit broken when I got it, but it’s nothing irreparable.
The Golden Bronzer features four shimmery shades: a dark brown, a light beige, a bronzish brown and a pinkish brown. When used together, you get a nice shimmery goldish bronze shade.
The bronzer is a bit powdery, although not so much to actually bother me. The shades are all very sheer so, if you don’t have pale skin, this won’t add any color at all. I was hoping to use this to contour, but it is way too shimmery for that. But it works really well as a highlighter to give your face a nice glow.
The bronzer comes in a beautiful and sleek black case, which looks very similar to Nars’ packaging. But I prefer E.L.F.’s because the case isn’t rubbery so it is easier to clean. It also comes with a mirror which is pretty big so you can actually see what you’re doing when you apply the bronzer.
Overall, E.L.F. Golden Bronzer is a good product, especially considered the price. It is too shimmery to be used to contour the face and is not very pigmented so the colors won’t show up on people with medium to dark skin. But it works great as a highlighter to give a beautiful glow to your face.
