Bare Minerals Invisible Bronze Powder Bronzer Review

*purchased by me

I’m just going to throw this out there right away: this is my new favorite, holy grail bronzer! The funny thing is I bought it by accident. I thought I was purchasing a Bare Minerals highlighter, but the bronzer was in the wrong spot. Since I didn’t notice until I was at home and didn’t feel like exchanging, I decided to keep it–an excellent decision!


An interesting tidbit about how these bronzers are made:

Invisible Bronze is made by Italian artisans, and no two are exactly alike. The pigment-packed formula begins as a cream, is baked on a terracotta tile for 24 hours, and is then hand-finished for an ultra-lightweight powder that feels creamy upon application, and delivers pure pigment and pearlβ€”without any binders or fillers.

The powder is comparable in texture to the Hourglass powders (but seems even more finely milled if you can believe that is possible); it is extremely soft and blendable, plus it is buildable. What I love about this bronzer is that it never appears overdone (at least if you’re wearing the correct color). My shade is Fair to Light, and it leaves me with a subtle glow.

The effect of this powder is truly sunkissed, at least on me, since the color is so natural. It’s not too warm and not too cool. It also melts into my other makeup to blend seamlessly! I have found that with some bronzers, no matter how much blending is done, it just doesn’t look natural.

This bronzer retails for $28 and I can’t rave about it enough. I used a $10 birthday coupon from Ulta when I purchased it; however, I would repurchase this with the regular retail price tag, because I am in love with this bronzer! πŸ™‚
