You guys probably know by now that I’m obsessed with both bronzers and BECCA Cosmetics, so when they launched their limited edition Gradient Sunlit Bronzer I had to get my hands on it.
I already have the original Sunlit Bronzer in ‘Capri Coast’, but this one has three of the the original shades as well as one of the highlights – so you’re basically getting four products for the price of one! It’s also a great way of testing out some of the bronzer and highlighter shades, and allows you to customise your perfect bronzer.
My ultimate goal in life is to be a beachy, bronzed goddess – and this bronzer definitely brings me a step closer to that. If you’ve tried the Sunlit Bronzers before then you’ll know how glowy they are; double that and you’ve got the Gradient Sunlit Bronzer.
BECCA released two shades of this bronzer: ‘Sunrise Waves’ which contains two of the lightest bronzer shades as well as the medium shade plus the ‘Opal’ highlighter, and ‘Sunset Waves’ which contains the medium shade and two darker shades plus the ‘Rose Gold’ highlighter. I have the lighter shade which is perfect for fair-medium skin tones, and I really think both options cover every skin tone because you can use more of a certain shade depending on how light/dark you want to go.
Although this bronzer does include a highlight shade, I don’t find it makes it glittery or sparkly. Instead it just adds a gorgeous radiance to the skin – perfect for a vacation! You can also use the bronzer shades and the highlighter separately if you’d prefer a slightly more satin finish, and the highlight section is big enough to use on its own without getting bronzer mixed in. This bronzer also doesn’t look orange or fake, it just gives a natural sunkissed look to the skin.
What I really love about this bronzer is that it’s perfect for travelling because you technically have a bronzer, highlighter – even eyeshadow! – all in one. The formula of this is really awesome too, it’s super buttery so it blends out easily, and although it’s highly pigmented I find it quite hard to be heavy-handed with this.
Although this probably isn’t the kind of bronzer you want to use all year round (but I probably will because I love to glow), it’s absolutely perfect for summer and I’ll definitely be taking it travelling with me. It’s only £27, which I personally find to be a really reasonable price since it technically can be multi-purposed and it’s from a high-end brand.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments whether or not you want to try this bronzer out! See you next time,
