Reviews for sun club matte bronzing powder
People say Essence is really similar to Benefit.
Flawless Light Bronzer
I'm so happy I bought this bronzer, but I will say that the two shade options are not deep and don't really look much different. I am the shade NC15, Born This Way Almond, Lancôme 215 (so pretty fair) and I absolutely LOVE these bronzers!!! But they won't work for everyone. For reference, Benefit Hoola Bronzer is good but I can't put it straight on my face as a bronzer. It's too dark and will look muddy. This bronzer is seamless and when you apply It you can literally do no wrong. It applies like Velvet on the skin and it's so buildable! I like to use a very soft large powder brush to apply this on my forehead, cheek bones, and jaw and neck if needed to blend my makeup together! It would be amazing if they could expand the shade range for this formula. This is my go to Bronzer forever!!! It's so affordable and I'm obsessed with the formula!
My new go to bronzer
I love high end matte bronzers like TooFaced Chocolate Soleil, and benefit Hoola, and this Essence bronzer compares. I find myself reaching for it over every other bronzer I have, since I bought it. The blonde shade is great for my medium/light winter skin tone, and the coconut scent is awesome. The giant compact size, the price point, and the product itself make for a great deal. I will definitely be getting the brunette shade for summer.
Light 01 shade is excellent for fair skin
I purchased the Light 01 shade and compared this to my Maybelline City bronzer 100 and the Benefit Hoola Lite. Even though the pans look like different shades, when swatched this bronzer is an exact dupe of the Maybelline bronzer! And it's a larger size for half the price! The Hoola Lite is a touch more yellow-toned. I love a bronzer I can put on my fair skin and don't have to worry about how much I can apply. You can't go overboard with this one. Very happy with this product!
