How do you feel about chocolate mousse? — err, I mean Too Faced’s Aqua Bunny Bronzer ($28)?
Too Faced created this water-resistant, cream-to-powder bronzer to get a handle on shine while adding a sun-kissed glow to the skin. Despite how dark it looks in the pan, it goes on fairly sheer, almost like a semi-translucent, slightly shimmery golden bronze (sans orange undertones).
I’ve been using it for a few days to contour my cheeks (I took some pics here and here), applying with the brush it comes with. It’s easy to blend, layers well, lasts all day long, doesn’t blind me with shimmer and even photographs GREAT!
Now for the catch…
Too Faced says it’s supposed to smell like pina colada, but I’d call it more a coconuts and Play Doh scent. That’s right — PLAY DOH! And it seems like it lingers forever, which is probably more like 15 minutes in real life.
Finding a non-orangey bronzer can be tough, and this one offers beautiful golden bronze color with lots of control. The question is — can you get past the scent? If you can, it might be worth a try. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
