Summer and sun-kissed skin goes hand in hand, so it’s no wonder that Fenty Beauty came out with a brand-new bronzer line.
The Sun Stalk’r Instant Warmth Bronzer (C$38) is a long-wear, transfer-resistant powder bronzer that is available in eight shades to suit any skin tone. Housed in a beautiful copper compact, open it up to reveal a large powder with the iconic FB logo embossed into the product.
I received two of the eight shades, Shady BIZ (light with warm undertones) and Private Island (light to medium with warm undertones), both of which are on the lighter end of the spectrum (although not the lightest). I did find this bronzer to be very natural looking and creamy, meaning that it blended out nicely and didn’t look harsh or dirty on the skin (see before and after photos below). It also doesn’t feel heavy or cakey, making it ideal to wear on a hot day. I also want to note that there isn’t any sparkle or glitter in here, meaning the matte formula will look natural, whether it’s to give you a contour or a sunkissed glow.
Fenty also came out with a brush to apply this product with, the Cheek Hugging Bronzer Brush 190 (C$45), which is an angled and chiseled brush that is designed to apply the bronzer perfectly in the contours of your face. The large, plush brush (in the brand’s iconic soft pink colour) is cut so that it makes it super easy to create the perfect contour. Just sweep it in the bronzer and then apply it to the hollows of your cheek bones, temples, and jawline. It takes some getting used to in terms of maneuvering it, but it’s a pretty foolproof way to apply bronzer if you’re looking to use it for contouring.
The brush features soft synthetic bristles, so it’s truly perfect for everyone. It is on the pricier side at $45 but I highly recommend investing in your brushes to really apply the makeup in the way that it was meant to be applied. Do I absolutely recommend you pick this up if you’re getting the bronzer? No. If you already have a brush you like for contouring, then that would obviously do the trick. This one though makes it so much easier to apply the perfect perfectly in the areas that it should be applied to.
So how does the bronzer compare to others out there? If you are looking for a softer bronzer then you’ll love this one. I didn’t find it to be overly heavy or too drastic once applied (although I could have gotten that effect with a darker shade). It’s a nice, natural-looking colour that will truly impress anyone who purchases it.
What’s your favourite bronzer?
