Stila Illuminating Finishing Powder in Bronze - swatch

The sun was completely gracious this weekend and decided to let me take some great swatch pictures!  I was excited as I do not have good lighting at all in my apartment.

With summer just around the corner, I decided to show you Stila's Illuminating Finishing Powder (IFP) in Bronze...

Stila IFP in Bronze

This is one BIG pot of Bronze!  Now, I am not an aficionado when it comes to bronzers.  I do not wear them at all, but that's more out of not knowing how to use them.

I would not necessarily use this as a bronzer as it is quite quite shimmery.  In the pan it looks like it may lend a sheen to things, but once on the skin, you can see how shimmery it really is.

This color strikes me as more "rose gold" than bronze, especially when blended.  You do need a light hand with this.  The first few times I used it I had to become accustomed to how pigmented this product really is.  Running a brush across the pan can make the product "flake" a bit...does not look like you are picking up a ton of product.  Once on the skin it blends nicely.  Just one more product that I need to learn to use properly and give some well deserved love to :)

Thanks for stopping by!
