If you read my Top Ten e.l.f. Products post, then you probably know I really like cream bronzer. For starters, cream bronzer tends to hold up better than a powder bronzer (kind of how most cream/liquid foundation hold up better than powder foundation). You can also SET cream bronzer with a powder as you would your foundation (this is why it's a good option for oily skin) or you can use it alone and it isn't drying like a powder (making great for dry skin too). What does this mean to me? Long-wearing contour/color. The only problem? Most brands don't have a cream bronzer. Until more recently, Chanel's Soleil Tan de Chanel was one of the only nice cream bronzer's out there. It comes with a lot of product, but also a fairly high price tag. Now, quite a few brands are coming out with some options in cream bronzers/contours. But Sonia Kashuk's can be found at Target! It retails for $10.99 and comes in two shades: Warm Tan and Rich Bronze. I went with the darker shade, Rich Bronze, so that I could use it as a contour color.
It's called "Undetectable" for good reason - the product blends very easily! The formula smoothes right on creates a soft finish. I love the way this product feels on my skin; it's a cream but is so lightweight it feels as though you didn't apply anything! Because it's so smooth and airy-light it's extremely easy to blend in making it perfect for contouring during the day (but can also be built up for night). Undetectable.
♥ If you have oily skin: lightly apply it and then set it with your normal face powder.
♥ If you have dry skin: don't set with a powder if you don't normally.
♥ Use either a stippling brush or synthetic-bristled buffing brush to apply. Blend in all the edges well.

I'm really enjoying this bronzer right now! The Rich Bronze color is perfect to use as a contour - it doesn't come off as orange or overly warm as most bronzers do, there is no shimmer, and it's blend-ability makes it perfect!
