Review & Swatches: NEW e.l.f. Pressed Mineral Bronzers

    Following their huge birthday sale, e.l.f. Cosmetics has been releasing some fun new items that your makeup collection (and wallet) will love. Today, I’m going to show you the brand new Pressed Mineral Bronzers that were just released online today!

    Review & Swatches: NEW e.l.f. Pressed Mineral Bronzers

    The bronzers come in sleek, black compact packaging— exactly like the new Mineral Pressed Blushes. They contain .14 oz of product and there are four shades currently available.

    Baked Peach is definitely a highlight shade, and gives off a champagne-pink, shimmery glow.

    Tan Toffee is aptly named, because that is exactly what the shade resembles. It has warm undertones, and is the only matte bronzer of the bunch.

    Caramel Cabana is a warm gingerbread color with shimmer that gives it a golden sheen. This shade is pretty close to Tan Toffee.

    Beach Bronze is a cool, chocolate brown that also contains shimmer.

    The first word that came to mind when trying these for the first time? Silky! The smooth formula, consisting of Vitamin E and Grape, is fairly pigmented and blends so effortlessly. The texture is one I haven’t felt from any other e.l.f. products before (mind you, I haven’t tried the new mineral foundation or blushes yet), and I am loving it! Compared to the Contouring Blush & Bronzer duo, one of my favorites from e.l.f., these are like butter.

    The bronzers are lightweight, and you can build up the color to get stronger color payoff and longer wear time. With a heavy hand at bronzing, I did experience some fading throughout the day, so I’d suggest using a setting spray.

    I really hope that e.l.f. expands this line with more matte shades, since I tend to favor matte bronzer for contouring… although they probably contain the same amount of shimmer as the Contouring Blush & Bronzer duo, so I can’t complain too much. At least the glitter in these bronzers is fine and give Baked Peach, Caramel Cabana and Beach Bronze a pretty golden sheen. These would be fantastic for adding color and radiance to the face.

    The e.l.f. Pressed Mineral Bronzers have just been added to the e.l.f. website and cost a cool $5 each.

    Which of e.l.f.’s latest releases has you excited?

    1. I have gone a little crazy every time ELF has a 50% off sale. I love their stuff.. mostly. I just tried their new studio gel eyeliner in copper, and it’s love. so buttery smooth, and lasts and lasts. They are a great drugstore brand.
