A while ago one of my best friends gave me this bronzer by E.L.F. She didn’t use it and knowing I’m a huge beauty addict she thought I might like to give it a try. The bronzer I’m talking about is the E.L.F. Pressed Mineral Bronzer. After trying it out a couple of times it’s time for the review. If you’re interested in reading more about it, make sure you keep on reading!
The E.L.F. Pressed Mineral Bronzer comes in a very pretty and professional looking packaging. The packaging is not too big, it’s round and it’s made out of plastic. The edges are black and the part is the middle is see through. The packaging is really, really simple and minimalistic. The only thing it says on the front is the name of the brand and the name of the product and that’s basically it.
Overall I do think I like this packaging. It’s quite professional looking and it definitely doesn’t give away the fact that it’s quite an affordable product at all. I also like how compact it is and how it doesn’t have too many unnecessary things going on.
The E.L.F. Pressed Mineral Bronzer is available in four shades: Baked Peach, Tan Toffee, Beach Bronze and Caramel Cabana. The shades are all quite different from each other and all have quite different undertones, which is definitely a good thing. Because of that the chancer are way bigger that there is something in this range for everyone, or at least for more people.
The one I have is in the shade Tan Toffee. Tan Toffee has a pretty neutral undertone, which matches my skin tone really well, and it doesn’t have any shimmer to it. It’s basically the perfect colour to contour/shape with because of that.
Aside from using it for shaping, this bronzer could also be used to warm up the skin, so it could act as an actual bronzer, or it could act as an eyeshadow. Colours like this one look really pretty in the crease. Because this particular bronzer is so pigmented it’s perfect for that.
Quality wise this bronzer didn’t disappoint me. The texture of the powder is really nice. It’s not powdery like the powders from the cheap E.L.F. range and it’s not blotchy. It applies really evenly on the skin and it’s easy to work with because of the fact it’s easy to blend.
As I mentioned before the pigmentation part is not very disappointing either. This product is loaded with pigment. Because of that you do need to make sure that you apply it using either a light hand or something like a stippling brush or so, but if you do this could look really, really pretty.
The lasting power is again not disappointing. This bronzer perfectly stays in place on my skin. I do have to mention that I do use it in combination with a primer and a setting spray, but if I do that, this bronzer will easily last all day. I honestly think that that is pretty impressive!
Overall I’m quite impressed by this little one. It comes in a really professional looking packaging, the colour is multifunctional and the quality of this bronzer isn’t disappointing at all. I think that for a budget bronzer this is pretty much as good as it gets. I’m impressed!
