Makeup Revolution: Vivid Baked Bronzer

Makeup Revolution has a range of ‘Vivid Baked’ products that include blushes and highlighters, but today we will be taking a close look a the Vivid Baked Bronzers.

There are four bronzers in this range, of which I have three; two which I purchased myself and one (Bronzed Fame), which I received for free in a special promotion from Makeup Revolution.

Swatches: Golden Days, Ready to Go, Bronzed Fame

I find these bronzers really soft to the touch and easy to blend.  The pigmentation is very good, but quite soft, so it is easy to keep the look natural, even if you are a bit heavy handed.  These bronzers are shimmery but I find that it gives a natural glow rather than appearing glitter.  Saying that, Bronzed Fame does have some gold micro-glitter but as this colour is much too dark for my skin tone, I haven’t used it on my face so I can’t speak to how this transfers to the skin.  I have used it as an eyeshadow and it works lovely that way.

Ready to Go

Ready to Go is the lightest shade in the range.  This suits my skin really well and gives a subtle warmth.  I think that this shade is quite neutral toned.  Depending on your skin tone, this could be a beautiful, illuminating finishing powder or highlighter.

Golden Days

Golden Days is a similar depth of tone as Ready to Go, but it is certainly more golden in tone.  I enjoy this one during spring and summer when my skin has a little more colour.  Again, for people with deeper skin tones, this could be a beautiful highlighter.

Bronzed Fame

Bronzed Fame was not a shade that I selected myself, and as you can see it is much too dark for my skin.  The tone is definitely bronze!  I think I will take this on holiday with me the next time I go on a beach holiday as with a light hand it might make a nice body bronzer, but I am yet to try it this way.  This bronzer is not quite as soft to the touch as the other two that I own and I think that this is due to it containing some gold micro-shimmers which are marbled through the product.   As you can see in the swatch, it doesn’t look super ‘glittery’ on the skin though.

Overall, I really enjoy these baked bronzers.  I reach for these when I am in a rush as they are very user friendly: they just blend so well without looking streaky or patchy due to super high pigmentation and they give such a beautiful, natural glow.

For the longest time I only used matte bronzers but now I realise that a little bit of soft glow can be extremely pretty.

These Vivid Baked Bronzers cost GBP4 which is about AU$8 on the Makeup Revolution website, and I think they are certainly worth that price!

Have a fantastic day!
