Bronzer on a Budget | Hard Candy Makeup
I bought this box of Hard Candy products for $8. It has a full size Baked Bronzer and smaller tubes of the face primer, body and face illuminator and sparkle lip gloss (not pictured). Beyond worth it for the bronzer alone.
I use Hard Candy Baked Eyeshadows because they are highly pigmented and come in fabulous colors. My hopes were high that I would love the Baked Bronzer too but we all know how inexpensive bronzer can get scary and turn a gal ultra orange. Honestly this applies and looks like high end bronzer. It's not glittery and has a great glow and color.
The face and body illuminator does have a sparkle to it, not over bearing glitter but a subtle sparkle and bronzed glow.
The gloss was somewhat sticky but not the worst I've used and I loved the look of it, the shine made my lips look full and supple.
The primer did it's job, it kept my shine down throughout the day and I did use less foundation to get the coverage I wanted.
