Bronzed Goddess

This is a four star product, it is worth the money but does not exceed expectations. I am glad I purchased this since I like different makeup shade options. I would especially recommend this to anyone who uses bronzer all over their body and goes through large quantities!

Use

The Mineral Beauty Bronzer is a great bronzer for the face and body. It is nice and silky and goes on well. I would recommend this bronzer to any individual who feels that a medium-deep brown bronzer will not be too dark or orange on their skin tone. People who have fair skin really shouldn't try this color since it is just too dark. Instead I would check out other makeup options that would still give you a bronzed effect, but more subtle.

I have been wearing this bronzer as everyday makeup. I like to feel fresh faced and always sweep on a little "tan" in the morning. It is much safer than the tanning bed! In order to make sure you can safely put this powder on your face I would recommend trying some on the inside of your wrist first for a day to see how your skin reacts. If there is no irritation or other warning sign like pain or itchiness, then try it out on your face. You never know what ingredients you may react negatively to so take precaution when putting something on the sensitive skin of your face.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

I really was impressed with this bronzer's texture. It is silky and spreads nicely across the skin. It also holds up well during the day. Although it is a powder it does not feel dry like some do, but on the other hand it is not oily either. I use a "skunk brush" to apply bronzer, it is a big fluffy brush that has dark bristles at the base and white fluffy bristles at the end. It works really well to get a blended well distributed glow. My favorite skunk brush is the MAC 187SE. I think it always produces the best finish.
    • Smooth
    • Velvety

Taste / Aroma

The Bella Beauty Bronzer smells like a typical compressed powder makeup tends to smell. In order to pick up the scent I have to put my nose very close to the makeup and I certainly can not smell it on my face when I have it on. I did not test to see what it tasted like since it is not meant to be ingested.
    • Light smell
    • Smells good

Performance

I am quite impressed with the Bella Bronzer. It lasted through my day and kept me looking nice and golden. I am a college student and tend to be tired out and pale a lot of times and I want to look nice and fresh faced, and bronzer certainly helps! You should wash off makeup at night to keep your skin clean and healthy, and this bronzer comes off nice and easy. Just wash with warm water and gentle face soap.

I love the animal print design of the makeup, but as soon as I used it for the first time my brush totally mixed up the crisp design. The dark pigment completely covers many parts of the lighter colored powder. I do worry that maybe I'm picking up a little too much dark brown with my brush for my medium skin tone, but I look natural after applying. I'm not really too incredibly impressed by this powder since I've had better for cheaper, but it's not too shabby and you get a huge 38.88g in the pack.
    • Feels natural
    • Long lasting
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water

Packaging

The makeup came in a high quality pink box, but the plastic compact is cheap. The plastic is thin and brittle and could break easily. There is really nothing special about the compact it is as plain as they get. Clear top and black bottom with an information sticker on the back. I didn't realize it was a large as it is when I ordered it. It consequently does not fit in my makeup case. It is almost five inches in diameter! I have a slender case that I carry everywhere with my basic palettes in it, and this certainly will not fit, which means I may not use it as much as I would like to.

There are no instructions, as is usual with most makeup products. Additionally, there is really nothing sexual about a leopard print bronzer, so I don't think anyone will even consider it came from an adult toys website!
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Does not leak
    • Would make a nice gift
Follow-up commentary
This bronzer is something that I keep in my larger makeup case that I don't really use often. It is in an enormous compact. I travel most weekends and it is just not compatible with these arrangements. It is a nice bronzer that needs to be used sparingly on my light skin, but I still like it.

A good thing about the large compact is that I feel fine using it as a body bronzer. So, when I'm a little pale and showing skin I can brush it over parts of my body to add a little color.
