Bronzers for Dark Skin

Bronzers for Dark Skin

“Bronzers for dark skin?”

“But we’re already brown/bronze?”

“Why would I need bronzer?”

Many moons ago I, too, did not get the whole bronzer thing (well, I understood bronzer—just didn’t see it as for my skin tone), but back then not very many brands were making bronzers deep enough to make a difference on darker skin tones. But also many moons after that, I got my hands on some that did come deep enough and have been a bronzer fan since. I thought now would be an amazing time to do another bronzers for dark skin post because with it being winter and all, many of us can use a little extra glow.

TSABD Edit: Reviewing & Swatching Powders for Dark Skin

powders-for-dark-skin-4

Welcome to the first TSABD Edit! If you missed my post on changes to how I’ll be blogging going forward, make sure you read it here. TSABD Edit is my new review series where you’ll still get the same authentic reviews you’re accustomed to, but they’ll be grouped by a theme. So instead of me doing say 20 individual reviews, I’ll instead do these once a week or once every two weeks and cover a group of products in one post. If a very popular limited edition product comes out and is available for me to get, I’ll get those out as quickly as possible and likely in its own individual post, but for the most part TSABD Edit is where you’ll now find a majority of the reviews on this site going forward—you can still check out past reviews here. You can expect to see TSABD Edit posts here on Tuesdays—make sure you subscribe to the blog to get email alerts about all new blog posts!

Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation Will Come in NEW Deeper Shades

Back in September I was invited out to Brooklyn for a special early sneak peek of wet n wild’s 2017 launches. There are a ton of new products coming our way in January, but naturally I zeroed in on the foundations since they added new deeper shades to the lineup. Though the company that owns wet n wild also owns Black Radiance, we haven’t seen much crossover (okay, we haven’t seen ANY crossover) in complexion shades since—well, maybe EVER.
