I saw this adorable Too Faced Pink Leopard Bronzer (slash highlighter, slash blush) for the first time when Sam Chapman, one of the Pixiwoo sisters put it on in her “Healthy Summer Glow” video last year, or a year and a half ago was it? Hers was part of a bronzer trio palette, I opted for the single product.
It was soooo cute, so eventually, yes, of course I had to find one of my own, and you know me, seek and ye shall find.
Meowrrrr! (Swishes tail). I opted for the tiny 2.5 g pan as I wasn’t kidding myself, what if it sucked despite its “Aww!” power?
What you have is a trio of pink panther pink, a classy fawn, and satin chocolate brown pieced together in leopard print style. Ultimo cute… I know I know, it’s just a bronzer pseudo blush/highlighter just all clumped together in a really cute way in a metal pan set in a really cute somewhat kitsch-y box.
Yes, ano ba talaga siya? LOL, I’ll get to that in a moment. Let’s see very subtle hand swatches that, mind you, weren’t easy to get because the color patches are so tiny. Continue reading to see the swatches, discover its local dupe in terms of payoff, and find out how this cute little product looks on me basically for complexion.
Swatches, quickly now…
You can see here that it’s very subtle and if you’re not into shine and shimmer then this isn’t for you. It works as a highlighter, blush, and bronzer balanced and rolled into one product that’s really great for that beach sheen you want on your face.
What I like though more than anything is how much thought, delight, and care was put into a product like this concept wise at least, it’s a bit cheesy but still very feminine.
In the end this worked almost exactly the way my Elianto Baked Blush in Pale Pink did for me. It gives you a summer shine that doesn’t look greasy, and a hint of sunkissed color on your cheeks.
See? The subject of this being a bronzer is pretty debatable, I’d prefer to say it works like a marbled blush of some sort or more commonly known as the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish items or just like the Elianto baked blush I wrote about. Too Faced is a U.S. brand and while it isn’t as edgy or in demand as Urban Decay, it has a healthy following because of the quality of their products and quirky packaging. One of their best sellers is the Too Faced Shadow insurance primer.
