Essence Sun Club: The Best Bronzer For Five Bucks

Bronzer can be a totally tricky thing to get the hang of. From picking a color (not too orange!) to application, bronzer takes a few tries to get it right. I’ve certainly had my fair share of bronzing problems but I finally found one that I think is amazing. Related: Shop Summer’s Best Self Tanners The Essence Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder comes from a cosmetics company that has been huge in Europe for years. I visited a friend in Germany a few summers back and was amazed at the great (and cheap) makeup products over there. When I saw it in stores here a few months ago I was so excited to have Essence in Canada. This bronzer was one of the first things I picked up from the brand, and it’s probably my best purchase from Essence. Related: Bronzer Tips From A Pro The bronzer is huge, as in the size of a saucer for your teacup, and although I was unsure at first I have now come to love that fact. I can swirl my brush around without spilling powder over the sides. For the size, this bronzer is a steal. It rings in at $4.99 at Shoppers Drug Mart, which is definitely a price I’d pay for a great matte bronzer. I typically go for shimmery ones and sometimes that can end up a little too glittery for daytime wear. This one has no shimmer or sparkle, just a lovely golden glowing color. It also smells a tiny bit like coconut. With a few sweeps of a brush I get a sun kissed glow that lasts all day. Related: The Truth About Self Tanners For Men Essence Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder comes in two shades, one for lighter complexions and one for darker tones. They are labeled for Blondes and Brunettes, but the color refers to a lighter or darker powder depending on how fair your skin may be. At such a small price point for such a big bronzer, this is a must-try for your summer makeup stash.
