A Secret to My Summer Glow!

There are times when we experience having a dull face or sometimes feeling unwell. When it seems you look so pale and haggard looking (aaaahhh!-not good). This is one of my secret in looking so refresh and as if I had a wonderful beauty rest. The secret is applying a bronzer and one that I've been using is Urban Decay Baked Bronzer in Gilded.

Urban Decay released their baked bronzer a few years ago and sadly, this was discontinued. I'm glad I was able to get my hands this. I first saw this bronzer was used by one of the Pixiwoo sisters - Sam. I love how the end looks after she applied it.

At first, I thought bronzers are only for contouring but I was wrong. As more bronzers added to my stash, I got different shades, undertone and finish that got me thinking that some of them are not good for contouring because they have a slight shimmer on it while some are matte.

Packaging : The product comes in a compact in a bronze gold color. The lid had a gold colored oriental design and the Urban Decay's logo, the word baked printed in a script font while the word bronzer in all capital letters - all of the 3 are in blue colored print. 

Net Weight : 7.5 g / 0.26 US oz. 

Shade : Comes in 3 shades : Toasted which has a matte finish, Baked which has a pinkish gold shimmer - semi-shimmer finish and Gilded which I have, has a brownish shade with golden shimmer - a shimmer - satiny finish.

See how lovely the design on the lid? I just love it!

This is a few golden veins on it which reminds me so much of MAC Mineralize Skinfinish. Although, other bronzers like this I've seen from other bloggers' pictures have different veinings so it has a different finish to it when swatched.

The texture is smooth and buttery but since I have most of the gold shimmer veins the finish has more shimmery. 

It has a golden undertone and a more brown shade and less orangey which I prefer because of my yellow skin tone. I applied this as an all over bronzer (on the tops of my cheekbones, on my forehead,  on my nose and chin) and sometimes I applied it on my cheeks then a blush of the day on top and it gives an amazing glow and finish! This can be worn wet or dry.

Do you have one of the Urban Decay baked bronzer? If so, what shade?

Thanks for stopping by!
