Hey all beauty geeks!!!Â Hope alls well with everyone. 🙂 When we moved to US, one of the reasons for picking up our current house was the proximity of Target superstore. The store was right opposite our house, which would make getting groceries and other stuff convenient. Little did I know that Target would become my makeup Mecca as well. 🙂 Of all the brands available in Target, Sonia Kashuk is one of my favorites. So, I bring to you today a review of one of the most popular Sonia Kashuk product.
Contouring has become the latest trend these days. However, the beauty of this technique relies mostly on the products you use. Now not all of us can be expert as Anamika, so we have to find the best products available. 😉 This led me to pick up this bronzer. Don’t think it was an easy task. Cream bronzers are rare in drugstore brands. I did buy a couple of powder drugstore bronzers to start with. However, I thought my search may end after this product.

My take on Sonia Kashuk Undetectable Cream Bronzer Review 42 Rich Bronze:
Sonia Kashuk Undetectable Cream Bronzer is available in two shades – Warm Tan and Rich Bronze. Warm Tan is for lighter skin tones and Rich Bronze is for darker ones. In fact, Warm Tan is considered to be a dupe for the ever popular ‘Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzer’. Excited aren’t we??? 🙂 I originally bought the bronzer mostly for contouring purposes. I use it with my Real Techniques Face Expert brush or a stippling brush. There is another way, though, that I have recently started using it. I apply it below all my foundations that are a shade lighter than my skin tone. I do not get the whitish/pinkish cast you get when using a lighter foundation. Yipee 🙂
Texture: I LOVE the texture of this bronzer. It is not anything like I have ever used. It just melts into your skin. The bronzer has a thin cream consistency and gives you a luminous sheen. Nothing glittery at all. Just a healthy ‘lit-from-within’ glow. Just look at the second half of the picture to get an idea of the texture. It is this texture that makes this product a winner. The application is flawless and does not look streaky/patchy at all, which may happen with powder bronzers.
Pigmentation: The bronzer is translucent, yet pigmented enough. Just start slowly and then build up according to your need. I have swiped three times in the swatch. And look at the way it blends. Completely sinks in to the skin.Â The color is just right. Nothing orange or muddy about this bronzer.
Staying Power: The bronzer lasted several hours on me with a slight fading towards the end. However, I still would be cautious wearing this with a white shirt if applied below the jaw line.
Packaging: The bronzer has a very chic and expensive-looking dual compartment packaging. It has a golden metallic finish with a magnetic closure. The bronzer is in a pan that has a mirror on the other side. It comes with a sponge. I have always used a brush to apply this, however, one can use the sponge in a pinch. I must say that packaging is a tad bulky for the amount you get.
