Best Bronzer Ever

... and it's from the drugstore! I have been on the hunt for a good bronzer for the last few months... I've tried many different brands, and have finally found a great one! This one was recommended by the beautiful and inspiring, KathleenLights, a beauty You-Tuber who has the best videos on YouTube (in my opinion, that is). So without further adieu, let me introduce you to my favorite bronzer thus far...


The e.l.f. contouring brush and bronzing powder in St. Lucia!

Not only is this bronzer affordable (I believe it's less than $5), but it applies so well on my skin.  Note: I have normal, slightly dry skin.  Usually though, whenever I apply bronzer, I can't really see it on my face, unless I use foundation beforehand.  BUT, this bronzer applied beautifully to my face and without any foundation! Ever since purchasing this bronzer, I've been using it everyday, and I absolutely love it!

The bronzing powder is a matte brown (with just a bit of shimmer - but you can't see the shimmer on your skin), and it's neither too cool or too warm, which makes it perfect for contouring. It looks a little dark, so I would use a light hand and layer it on. I also like the blush that it comes with, it is a warm pink color with some peach flecks in it.  Both powders are not patchy and blends very well on the skin.  If you're looking for a bronzer that works with many skin tones, stays on, and is perfect for everyday, this is your bronzer!


I used this bronzer for a natural, but slightly defined look when getting ready for a night of enchiladas the other week. I also want to get the other colors in this kit, but for now, the St. Lucia contouring brush and bronzing powder kit is satisfying all of my bronzing and contouring needs!

What are some of your favorite bronzers? Bonus if they're affordable!

  1. Wow that is such a great, affordable option! Your contouring looks super in the pic :) Not as reasonable, but I really love the NARS bronzer. I have very pale skin so can struggle with bronzers, but the NARS one genuinely seems to suit every skin type! xxx
