Tower 28 Best Coast Bronzino Cream Bronzer Review & Swatches

by Jeremy

Its sheer coverage could be built up to semi-sheer to medium without feeling heavy or too tacky on my skin. The product applied evenly to bare skin and over foundation and did not lift my base products. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

The formula is supposed to have “buildable” coverage with an “illuminating” effect that is “blendable” and yields a “bronzy sheen.” The procedure has sheer to semi-sheer coverage, which could be built up to medium coverage, but it was easier to work with when applied as a semi-sheer product.

The texture was balmy, emollient, and lightweight, with a touch of tackiness, which helped keep it from spreading too readily. Still, I’d recommend gently pressing it onto the skin with a fingertip to avoid lifting base products. It was not particularly prone to lifting base products, but I had it occur twice out of 10 applications.

The product was applied evenly and blended out without difficulty. The shades lasted between seven and eight hours on me before fading visibly.
