Becca Sunlit Bronzer Review, Swatches and FOTD

Hello beautiful people! I hope you’re all having a fantastic Sunday! We’re solidly in my favourite season of all and when summer is around Eleni wants to burn like a cookie under the sun! Till that’s possible, I’ve been stocking up on bronzing products and it looks like I’m into bronzers this summer more than any other summer! I’ve already reviewed the Marc Jacobs Coconut Bronzer, the new Mac Baiana Bronzer and the Guerlain Terracota Bronzers. Today I’d like to speak to you about the newly launched Becca Sunlit Bronzer!

Becca launched five new bronzers  in time for summer 2017 and although I was initially sceptical of the fact that there is shimmer in these, I now love them. I’m a fan of matte bronzers as I sometimes love to “bronzetour”, instead of contour. However, when we are talking about Becca shimmer quality, then things definitely change. The new Sunlit Bronzers are infused with the same quality shimmer that we find in all Becca Highlighters, so the result is amazing on the skin: you get subtle luminosity, the shimmer is undetectable while the bronzing effect is definitely there and lasts all day long!

What I love about the Becca Sunlit Bronzer is that it blends so easily that I just apply with a fluffy brush, blend for five seconds or so and I’m done! I don’t use a highlighter on top of these because I find that their effect is radiant enough, but you could if you wanted and it wouldn’t be too much, depending on the rest of your make-up.

As mentioned earlier, there are five shades to choose from. The palest one is Bali Sands and it’s actually very pale (I’d say good for NC25 skin tones and even below that). The second one up is Capri Coast and on my NC30 skin this is very subtle but enough to add undetectable definition. I’ve been using this one daily and I really like it for when I want a defined but undetectably bronzed look.

You can see how the Capri Coast Sunlit Bronzer works on my skin in the photo above. When diffused, it’s subtle but still there.

The next shade up is Bronzed Bondi and I’m expecting to make more use of that one as I gradually tan (I normally go up to NC40).

I can use Bronzed Bondi now as well, it will just be more obvious on my cheeks. It depends on the effect that you’re after. For the sake of photography in natural day light, I used Becca Bronzed Bondi yesterday and that’s how it looks on my skin as is now:

I have Bronzed Bondi on my cheeks and forehead. I’ve used no highlighter, but I have Mac’s Face and Body Foundation on and that’s dewy. My mascara is the new DiorShow Pump’n’Volume and as for the liner… it’s coming up, so bear with me, it’s gonna be a surprise!

Last but not least, all shades of the Becca Sunlit Bronzers, including Ipanema Sun and Maui Nights (the two darker ones), can be checked out here. You can already purchase your Becca bronzer in Space NK in the UK for £32. If you opt for a shimmering bronzer this summer, this is an excellent option.

What do think of the new Becca Sunlit Bronzer? Will you indulge?

Have a wonderful Sunday and I’ll speak to you soon!

    I think this is the first year I am obsessing and using a bronzer so much, I didn’t bother to use one the previous summers. But once you start using one, you cannot stop!! xx

    I got the lightest shade and it was so patchy! The formula must be inconsistent, which is a shame given it’s Becca.

    Just like you I prefer matte bronzers, but Becca made me fall in love with highlighters, so maybe they will convince me again.

    I’m excited for Summer & my birthday month but there’s torrential rain outside my window currently. I love the look of these, I’m yet to try a Becca bronzer or highlighter which I think is a bit of a crime – Need to rectify this!

    I actually quite enjoy shimmery bronzers! Not too shimmery of course, but I think they can look quite nice with a good highlighter. The Becca one is super pretty! Definitely worth the investment. My favourite bronzer at the moment is Soap & Glory’s Wonderbronze. Super affordable, lovely colour and it gives a nice amount of shimmer. Thanks for sharing your lovely review, darling! xoxo

    These bronzers are lovely! I don’t normally go for bronzer as I find it hard to get the shade right, but I think I would be similar to you. It’s nice that they have up to 5 shades as well. Your skin looks all lovely and glowy as well 🙂 xx

    I’m glad you showed these, because I always worry about shimmer as well. They look fabulous on you! The shimmer is very subtle. I love bronzers.

    I think every couple years or so I go through this bronzer phase where I want the newest one. I always say how much bronzer do one really needs but this year I’ve been loving these Becca bronzers. I have Bronzed Bondi and I can honestly say I really love it. You look beautiful and glowing. xx

    I was on the fence about purchasing these because they look so shimmery but gosh, you make them look absolutely beautiful! I might pick up one to try soon.
