Swatched: Too Faced Pure Bronze

This is the Too Faced Pure Bronze bronzing powder. It is a golden bronze mineral powder with real crushed pearls in it to give it shimmer. On the Too Faced website, this retails for $25.65 (Click here) but I found it at Nordstrom Rack for $9.97. This is over half off the regular price! What a find...

This and the other two Too Faced products I got at Nordstrom Rack that day are my first from the brand. I have to say that I LOVE their packaging. The box this came in is a shiny bronze color with the mermaid emblem printed on it. I like the colors and the design. The mermaids are a fun nod to the beach and the fact that they used crushed pearls in the powder. And once you open this container up it has a twistable closure inside to stop the powder from spilling. I like this one much better than the twist closures in the Bare Mineral face powders.

The color of this bronzer is a warm golden shimmer. I have lighter skin, but I was able to blend this enough to just get a hint of a that golden glow. In my swatch pictures below, I swiped the powder on the left side and blended it with my finger on the right side. I think this would work on many skin tones, if nothing else it will at least give you that hint of golden shimmer. If you don't like shimmer in your bronzers than this product is definitely not for you. A little goes a long way with this, for the blended side of my swatch I used far less than for the swiped side. I have only used it a couple of times so far so I can't really comment on the length of wear yet, but I am sure once summer hits this will become a favorite of mine.

Too Faced Pure Bronze is available on the Too Faced website or you can check your local Nordstrom Rack like I did. I also found it available on Amazon. I was unable to find it on the Sephora or Ulta websites.
