I have a long lasting love-hate relationship with Lorac Cosmetics. I love the formula of every product that I’ve tried from them, but I hate that they play that game where they pretend it’s impossible to carry more than 10 shades of foundation. Luckily, this review is of a more flexible product: the Lorac Tantalizer Baked Bronzer! When I was first starting out in the bronzer world, this was what I turned to first. For a mere $8* I picked up this bronzer online from Ulta and have been rocking with it ever since.
The initial thing I noticed about this product is that it has a slight packaging flaw. Instead of being in a compact shape, it swivel open in a circular motion and is super hard to open. I remember spending 15 minutes on google and watching tutorials to figure out how to open it. On the positive, it is much sturdier than other bronzers, in part due to the fact that it’s a baked product, but also because the plastic is thick and ready for clumsy hands like mine.
The actual product is stunning as well. I’ve never truly managed to bronze with this product, because it’s a bit too light reflecting on the deepness of my skin, but it works amazing as a highlight. There isn’t any chunky glitter in it, and the deep bronze looks very natural on the cheekbones of us deeper skin divas. Because it is baked, it feels a bit hard, so you will have to swivel your brush around in it a bit more than you would in a pressed powder. I honestly think that lends itself more toward making sure you keep your highlight in check, which is great for those more subtle days
I’m all around a huge fan of this product. The packaging is not the best, but it’s sturdy, the product is beautiful to highlight deeper skin, and it lasts for ages. If you’ve seen it at Ulta and have been asking yourself, “Should I go for it?” the answer is yes.**
Thanks for reading!
Until next time, have an awesome rest of your day and an amazing rest of your week!
*I purchased the travel size version which is $8 for 1.9g. The full size is $33 for 9g.
**If you do buy it, I recommend going for the travel size. I’ve been using it for about 2 years now, and haven’t even got half way through it. Seeing as makeup does expire, I don’t think it’s worth spending $33 on the full size version, when it takes forever to even use up the travel size one.
