Today, my QVC package came in the mail. I’m so excited because I received my Laura Geller Baked Bronze-N-Brighten Super-sized multipurpose bronzer. I’ve been using this product for a few years. In fact, I am surprised I haven’t reviewed this baked multipurpose powder before this. Although, I am happy to be reviewing the Super-sized version, for you, now. Another reason I am happy I waited til now is Laura released a fourth shade. And, I’m in love with the new shade! Read on to see the new shade!
For one thing, I am so ready for the season to change. We all of us could use a little “sunshine” on our faces. In addition, the Super-sized version comes with a fabulous retractable kabuki brush. Also, Bronze-N-Brighten is no ordinary bronzer. Instead, this is a multipurpose bronzer. Therefore, you can wear this as your eyeshadow, or your crease shade. In addition, contour your face with the bronzer. Next, use it to fill in your eyebrows. Then, line your eyes with it. Above all, wear this as your bronzer! You’ll feel like you were on the beach for a week.
You can find the Laura Geller Baked Bronze-N-Brighten Super-sized Multipurpose Powder on QVC. The Bronze-N-Brighten Super-Sized ( 0.78 / 22g) costs $49.98. You can also find the regular Bronze-N-Brighten on QVC, Zulily, and on the Laura Geller New York Website. And the QVC regular-sized Bronze and Brighten (0.32 oz. / 9g) also comes with a Kabuki Brush and costs $39.50. On Laura Geller Beauty, the Regular-sized Bronze-N-Brighten costs $34. Finally, on Zulily the cost for the regular-size costs $33.99.
The Packaging For The Laura Geller Baked Bronze-N-Brighten Super-sized Multipurpose Bronzer
First of all, the Super-sized compact is more than half the amount of product than the regular size. In fact, the numbers say it all. Therefore, the Super-size is 0.46 oz. more , and 13 grams more than the regular compact. Also, the regular compact has a half of a mirror. And, the Super-sized compact has a full-sized mirror. At QVC, both sizes come with a retractable kabuki brush. All in all, the packaging is travel-worthy! Although, you may want to purchase a regular-sized compact to keep in your handbag.
The Formula For The Baked Bronze-N-Brighten Super-sized Multipurpose Bronzer
First, the bronzer powder has a creamy texture. Also, the powder is featherlight, and feels weightless on the skin. Even more, rich antioxidants are included in the formula. Additionally, the pigments are self-adjusting.
Next, the formula, a process, begins with liquid pigments. First, the pigments are baked on a terracotta tile for 24 hours.Last, the powder is finished, by Italian Artisans, by hand. This is when the powder becomes a silky dome. The process reminds me of the Surratt products made with the Japanese Slurry Method. The Japanese product also starts out as liquid. pigments. However, instead of baking the liquid out, the Japanese slurry method presses the wet pigments. IN this way, the liquid comes out. Then, the powder is left to dry on its own.
Furthermore, Laura says there are six color-correcting pigments in the formula. Also, the ingredients include Carmine. As a result, the formula is not vegan. Also, talc is included in the ingredients. However, the ingredients don’t include mineral oil. Even more, the formula is paraben free.
The Shades For The Baked Bronze-N-Brighten Super-sized Multipurpose Bronzer
To start with, the three original shades are Fair, Medium, and Deep. Also, the newest shade, Roman Holiday, was an immediate sell-out! Luckily, I was watching the show on QVC in the middle of the night. Therefore, I was able to get one. First, fair is for porcelain to fair complexions. Then, medium is for light to medium/tan complexions. Next, Deep is for tan to deep complexions. Finally, Roman Holiday, brand new, is for light to medium complexions. It is perfect for winter skin, which is that sickly pallor we get after long months inside, without the sun shining.
None of the shades are grey or muddy. And, they are buildable, if you want more intensity. Additionally, they give you great coverage.
My Final Thoughts On the Baked Bronze-N-Brighten Super-sized Multipurpose Bronzer
There are many reasons why you might want the Super-sized compact. First, the powder should last you at least two years! Second, aside from all the things you can use it for on your face, you can also use it on your body! Therefore, you can brush it on your decollete. Also, wear some on your shoulders. Do your legs look like paste? Brush some on your legs. Even more, put it on the places where the sun hits your face. First, put some on your cheeks. Then, add then, brush the powder on your forehead, chin, and across your nose. To pick up the powder with the kabuki brush, swirl the powder into the pan, and pick up as much of the corrective pigments as you can, with the bronzer.
Again, this is not a new product. However, I am in love with the New Roman Holiday shade. I even love the name, Roman Holiday! Wouldn’t you love to go on a Roman Holiday? Me too! If you decide to go, please take me with you!!!
And, let me know what you think of this multitasking bronzer. It is really amazing. I love the baked product. It looks so pretty in the pan! And, every pan is different! In other words, no two are alike. Please drop me a line in the comments box below!
