I’m never one to miss out on a bargain, particularly when it comes to makeup. Catch often has amazing deals on drugstore to high end makeup, and last week I saw they’d released a range of Becca products that were up to 45% off their retail value. The Becca Sunlit Bronzers were selling for $35 each, so I grabbed Bali Sands, the lightest shade in the range.
The packaging is beautifully sleek, and in the same ‘flying saucer’ style as their highlight, blush and foundation compacts. However, instead of the silver faux-steel top, they’ve got a bronze-gold top, which suits the warm sunlit theme.
Inside you get a mirror and 7.1 grams of product, which is very close in weight to their latest Shimmering Skin Perfectors.
There’s a faint gold glitter overspray on the product, but this can be easily removed with a finger swatch (it isn’t mixed in to the entire powder) and does not effect the product’s performance.
There is also a wave imprint on the powder, making it look like untouched sand at the beach, and reminds me of the Physician’s Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer.
Bali Sands is a warm-toned caramel brown shade with a satin finish. It pulled very warm on my skin, but with a light hand I was able to make it work.
I’m glad I picked up the lightest shade in the range, as anything deeper on my fair skin would have looked muddy and out of place.
I compared it to the warm-toned Physician’s Formula bronzer, as well as my two favourite cool-toned bronzers from Too Faced, and judging from the swatches, it’s the lightest in the range, but still warmer than what I’m used to wearing.
I think this shade would best suit those with a fair to light complexion who have a warm or neutral undertone, but provided you enjoy a warm bronzer, there’s a shade for most skin tones.
That being said, I hope they expand their range for those with really deep skin tones, as well as bring out a few cool-toned options across their shade selection.
