Hi All,

Don’t we all have times when we’re so caught up in the excitement of a sale that we end up buying anything remotely interesting just ‘coz its discounted? That’s what happened to me during their sale late last year. I was picking up stuff for my in-laws (since they looooove TBS) and happened to see this bronzer in a basket for 50% off! Well, I picked it up without a second glance and here’s how another one of my impulse buys turned out..

My experience with the TBS Baked Bronzer in Warm Glow:-

 

  • Color: This bronzer is a different kind than I’ve seen before..Yes, its baked with a shimmery bronze, brown and cream veining, but also has touches of fuschia pink in it as well. The shimmer isnt chunky, but yes, the shimmer does show easily on the skin.
  • Price:  INR 1120

  • Pigmentation: This is decently pigmented with a lot of fallout. And when I say a lot…I mean ALOT !
  • Staying Power: This stays on me for about 4hrs easily.

When I first saw the fuschia in it, I thought it could be used a blush too..But sadly that’s not the case. The pink doesn’t show up even remotely and infact, nor does the bronze…It does show a bit on my hand (refer to hand swatch) but once it goes on my face, it acts more as a highlighter. I personally don’t have a problem  with this since I love highlighters. My fav one for office use is MAC CCB in Hush reviewed here and this is perfect for casual outings.

A plus point with this product is that the shimmer is so minute that it looks more like a glistening sheen on the face than some of those cheap chunky glitters in the market. I don’t like the chunky or the more obvious highlighters and this one is perfect for me. I just use a stippling brush to apply on the high points of my cheeks and on the bridge of my nose and I’m done 🙂

Although this doesn’t do what it was intended to, it makes for a wonderful highlighter…

  1. Nice review Zara! I had my eyes on it when I visited TBS.. I wanted to buy it but I already bought a lot on sale and this wasn’t on sale so skipped it. But I’m glad I dint buy it 😀 coz I’m hunting for a good bronzer and I already have an highlighter.
    Any good suggestions for a bronzer, I’m medium toned.

    • Gud u dint gett tis deeps… It wud work as a highlighter only For most f us…
      For medium skin I’d recco benefit hoola or mac bronzing powder if u want a matte one …if u want a shimmery one then physicians formula happy booster bronzer s gud n so is the lakme one…I tink the name is sun kissed and moonlight…

  2. Am currently obsessed with highlighters too n love this one Zee! Don’t see how this came to be called a bronzer though ?:-) It looks pretty similar to Nyx mosaic in dare which is my fav highlighter at the moment 🙂

    • There r a lot of techniques nav…diff if u just want to add warmth to ur face n diff If u want to contour…u shud watch some YouTube videos nav…m sure ul luv it! I know I do…I hate looking pale and bronzing n contouring really helps a lot..
