I’ve been slightly obsessed with this Fenty Beauty bronzer since I first got it. I had heard so many great things about Fenty’s cream base products and as I love their foundations, I had a feeling I would like this and I do, I love it in fact. It is the most natural looking bronzer that I have ever used.
This has a beautiful, buttery consistency. It kind of reminds of warm butter. Y’know, when you leave the butter (or whatever spread you use) out on the countertops and it gets warm and spreads easily? That’s basically what this is like. A strange way to describe it, but it’s the best way I could think of. 😂🙈
It blends out so easily and seamlessly and is almost undetectable on the skin. I like to use two layers, but even with two layers it doesn’t look orange or muddy. It works well with all foundations, but I particularly love to pair it with Fenty’s Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation (review here).
“Sun’s out, cheeks out! Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer brings out the best of your cheekbones and delivers a natural-looking bronze that fakes that best-life flex: Sun, sleep, and plenty of water. With 7 sheer, buildable shades designed to serve all skin types and tones, this cream bronzer warms up and softly defines your face with a fresh-faced bronze glow that looks natural on everyone. Light-as-air, non-greasy cream bronzer that effortlessly melts into skin for a natural-looking bronze or soft contour—in 7 no-fuss shades for all skin tones.” – Fenty Beauty
That foundation is one of my all-time favourites. It always looks good and never ever lets me down. The two of them together make a really beautiful, long-wearing base that makes me look healthy.
It leaves a gorgeous dewiness on the skin, unlike powders which of course leave a matte finish. Sometimes I like to ‘set’ this with a powder bronzer, but others I don’t. It will transfer if not set. When wearing this under masks, I ALWAYS set it, so it doesn’t transfer as much. It never looks cakey with 1-2 layers, when unset or set. It always looks healthy and natural in my experience. I don’t have any other cream bronzers so I can’t compare it to any.
“Easy to blend and impossible to overdo, this light-as-air, sweat- and water-resistant formula instantly melts into skin without disturbing makeup, so vacay skin is just a finger tap away. And with a silky-smooth texture that doesn’t feel sticky or greasy, Cheeks Out leaves your skin feeling as natural as it looks. Whether you want to bronze, define, or contour, Cheeks Out lets you freestyle it with its range of neutral, warm, and cool undertones—including cult-favorite Match Stix contour shade Amber (now reborn as a cream)!” – Fenty Beauty
It comes in a slim compact, so it doesn’t take up much room in my drawers or makeup bag. The pan is a decent size and it’s something that will last a while, I think. It’s €32 / £29 / $32. Boots sometimes have 20% off so its worth keeping an out because you can nab it for a bit cheaper.
Have you tried this? What did you think of it?
