Urban Decay Baked Bronzer for Face & Body

 Back in 2009 I was at the height of my "I must be tan" time of my life and buying bronzers was a must. I've since learned the error of my ways and have seen how my skin has suffered from hanging out for 20 mins at a time in a tanning bed. Would I do it again? Maybe. Now you might ask why I would do that again if I know how horrible it is, for me tanning is sort of like an addiction.  Being tan gives me this incredible confidence boost it's like I'm a better version of my self.

Back in my tanning hay day this was my 2nd favorite bronzer, I already have a post up on my favorite one which is Hoola by Benefit. This Urban Decay one is nice if your going for more of a bronzed look with a nice shimmer. Now that I'm pale I can't use this but with Spring in full swing I thought it might still be a nice option for those with fantastic skin tones to check out.


Use this with a light hand to get a nice glow or use it wet to achieve a deeper color, don't worry using it wet wont make it muddy. If you are really heavy handed with it you'll find it will rub off on your clothes but if you lightly apply and build it you wont have any trouble with it rubbing off. The main thing I like about this one is that it can be used all over the body and transitions well in those places.

The overall color of this is very bronze and tends to have a orange lean to it, I found that when I was tan the orange would only show through if I got a little out of control with it :) The shimmer gives your skin a nice sheen that doesn't make you look overly sparkly.

Urban Decay has since changed up the packaging a little bit but your still getting the same product. This is available in two other shades Toasted and Gilded, this one is called Baked and retails for $26.00.

Happy Friday!!

  7. I love bronzer! ...until I sometime during the day touch my face and end up walking around with a random pale patch of (real) skin on my cheek - fail! LOL but that's just me and my horrible habit of touching my face. <3 hautepinkpretty.com
