Review of Make Up For Ever Mat Bronze

Reader Review of the Day: Make Up For Ever Mat Bronze

Bronzer can create the perfect sun-kissed look. But it can also look muddy or too obvious if the formulation doesn't work with your skin tone. Reader Treesah recently reviewed Make Up For Ever Mat Bronze ($30), giving it four out of five stars. Here's what she had to say:

This is the best bronzer I have ever purchased. My skin tone is medium to dark tan, depending on the season. I have been on the search for a perfect bronzer all my life. It was hard to find one with enough color, that was the right color, and was not shimmery. The color blends so well onto my face and totally brightens my complexion. [It gets] four stars out of five because of the useless applicator pad that comes with the compact. Really does anyone use these puffs that come with compacts? It's pointless — best used with a full bronzer brush.

This IS a great bronzer; it blends well and looks very natural even in the dead of winter. Best part? No shimmer whatsoever. I don't know why it's so hard to find a good bronzer without shimmer -- the sun doesn't magically deposit glitter onto my face, last I checked. Either I'm seriously missing out on raining sky-shimmer, or cosmetic companies assume that consumers don't care about having natural-looking tans. Hmm. Anyway, I have pretty light skin (with warm/olive undertones) and I use the lightest shade, 0. I love this stuff!

I love Mat Bronze. And yes, it comes in other shades. That's one of my favorite things about it. That, and the lack of overwhelming shimmer.

I have the same skin tone as she describes. Usually use MAC bronzer but it always crumbles. I'll give this a whirl!
