Have this in Los Cabos, which I think is the darkest colour. Looks very nice and matte. My skin is fairly light and using this product dry doesnīt seem to show up at all with a contouring/blush brush. I have tried wetting a sponge and applying it wet, and that way Iīm able to get a nice, matte finish with it after I blend it out with a foundation on my face. Iīm kind of disappointed though, the bronzer in the NARS-dupe duo is much more pigmented as you use it dry, like you would do when youīre on the go, but I donīt like how shimmery it is and thatīs why I bought the baked one. Will keep using the duo one for everyday.
This is a new E.L.F Studio Bronzer. Its long lasting, smooth and has a professional finish. Reminds me of the VS Mineral Bronzers that they recently discontinued. This Bronzer can be used either wet or dry but I prefer dry as it already offers a rich pigment, so use sparingly. I apply mine with a Stipple brush. The is NOT shimmery at all though it does have very small flecks of sparkle, once its applied, you wont notice the flecks. It gives the skin a lovely luminous glow, never cake'y slightly matte. I'm very pleased with this Bronzer. It comes in (3) shades: Los Cabos (deep bronze) St. Lucia (golden bronze) and Maui (light bronze). All three are beautiful.
