Solar Bits ($19.50)
These literally look like crushed metallic bits! They are very glittery and have a chunky texture. Unlike pigments, they can be used anywhere – eyes, cheeks and on the body. While they are very pretty to look at, fall out can be a big issue. I highly suggest patting them on with a slightly damp brush.
From Top to Bottom (Left to Right):
* Scatterays – Although this is a “soft metallic peach with gold pearlized pigments”, I do not see any peach on me. The color just shows up a shimmery champagne color.
* Sunpower – This “light metallic tan with gold pearlized pigments” reminds me of MAC’s Dazzleray pigment.
* Bronzescape – Described as a “yellowed-brown with gold pearlized pigments”, this looks like a cool-toned bronze on me.
* Black Ore – This “rich black with gold pearlized pigments” color is definitely the most unique shade out of the four. It is a black with a bit of green undertones and it is *so* pretty!
Bronzing Powder ($20)
From Left to Right:
* Refined Golden – This “finely spun golden with soft pearl finish” is a repromote. Although it looks a little intimidating in the pan with all the gold glitter, it is very subtle and you can build up the color by layering it on. It gives me a soft bronzy glow and does not look dirty at all.
* Solar Riche – This is a “mid-tone brown with slight oranged undertones” color that is new. It has the same texture and pigmentation as Refined Golden. Colorwise, it has a bit more red undertones. The ma applied this on me and I’m sold!
