Review: Buxom Hot Escapes Bronzer

For the past few years, bronzers seem to always be about contouring. Recently, I wanted to use bronzers again for an all over glow! I usually tan quite a bit, but this summer I'm really pale so I wanted a good sun-kissed glow.


The Buxom bronzers were actually released last year, but I bought mine this spring. The first thing I noticed was the smell! I'm not a fan of coconut but I ADORE this scent! It just smells like a vacation in a box. I got the shade in Tahiti which is a golden tan, but they have another one called Maldives which is slightly darker and more bronzy.

Basics
Shade: Tahiti
Price: $35 CAD
Where to Buy: Sephora



Pros
-Packaging: The compact feels very luxurious and has a large mirror inside. I LOVE the design of the wavy sand on the bronzer too.
-Texture: The texture is very soft  and smooth
-Color: The color is quite pigmented when I swatch it. I've been using a big kabuki brush to apply it to my face so the color gets more dispersed and not as concentrated but I think it's just because of my application method.
-Scent: OMG it smells sooo good! It reminds me of vacations in Hawaii and Mexico
-Price: Although expensive, it's less than most other high end brands
-Ingredients: This bronzer contains coconut oil which is suppose to be hydrating.

Cons
- I really can't think of any cons. Although the first one I had, it kept on filming over so that I had to scrap off the top layer with a qtip. But I went to Sephora and they were able to exchange it to me


I would really recommend this bronzer if you are looking for something to brighten up and add glow to your face! This wouldn't really work for contouring because it's a bit shimmery but it's so beautiful all over the face.

I just started using Buxom products this year and I think it might be my new favorite brand! I feel like their prices are more fair than other brands and produce quality products like their lip polish! See the review of the Buxom Dolly Lip Polish here.

What's your favorite bronzer? Do you like to contour or have a sun kissed glow?

  1. This bronzer is gorgeous! Sadly all of my bronzers are matte so they're mainly for contouring. I looove it when makeup has a scent. This bronzer sounds great. Thanks for the review! ^_^
