searching for bronzer

So...I did something stupid the other day.
I was going out and and put my favorite tube of red lipstick in my bag.
Harmless, right?
Then I had the brilliant idea to put my bronzer in my bag.
In under five minutes, it shattered everywhere...turning my leather clutch a nice orange, powdery hue.

So now I am obviously in need of a new bronzer. (and a new clutch).
Which is okay, because I needed one.
I previously used sorme as a bronzer, and loved it. But I think I need something a little multidimensional.
The above picks are probbbbbably what I am leaning towards...but I don't know yet!
The Guerlain goes for up to $75...can I justify that? Bronzer for $75?
and will the smashbox be too shimmery?
I don't want to be an oompa-loompa, but a nice glow with flecks of pinks and browns would be nice. :)

any tips? picks? recommendations? spill it!

ciao! xo


  1. I love Benefit's Hoola Bronzer...it's the perfect warm shade, not glittery or shimmery and is perfect whether you need dramatic contouring, or a simple, sunkissed glow!

  2. I LOVE Nars Laguna, and I can relate a bit, I just dropped and shattered it too. The worst! But it's not too shimmery/orange at all, and I actually can contour with it a bit, plus the orgasm blush that comes with it is gorgeous. I also have a deep love for hourglass ambient lighting powder in golden beige, it's such a beautiful bronze finisher. If anything, just go try it at Sephora. It's the most beautiful finishing bronzer I've ever worn! Good luck :)
