Tarte Park Ave Princess Bronze & Glow Matte Bronzer & Cheek Tint is a late Summer 2013 release following on the heels of Tarte’s Aqualillies Summer 2013 Collection. Park Ave Princess is such a popular Tarte product that makes an appearance everywhere so I found it interesting this is a reinvention of the formula.
You’ll recognize the format with Tarte Bronze & Glow Matte Bronzer & Cheek Tint as the Maracuja Blush & Glow in a similar style packaging. But in this case, I feel like you’ll make more use of the gel bronzer here where as I found it challenging to get through the highlighter in the Blush & Glow.
Let’s take a look!
Tarte Bronze & Glow Matte Bronzer & Cheek Tint takes Park Ave Princess and converts it to a cream formula. So if you’ve always loved Park Ave Princess Powder Bronzer you now have a new way to experience it.
This is a dual product which contains a tube of Park Ave Princess Bronzer and a topper tip that contains a cheek tint. The cheek tint is possibly the best part of the product as it comes in a gorgeous shade of glistening golden peach. The shade quite reminds me of Tarte Glisten Blush but in a cream formula.
Both products are infused with Tarte’s Amazonian clay and maracuja blend. The bronzer formula is a mousse-like texture that has a whipped consistency which can be applied over foundation or on bare skin prior to applying the cheek tint. This gives skin a very subtle hint of sunny tint. I was surprised as it is a deeper tan bronze but applies very subtly. It has a matte dry down but does not accentuate drier areas and has a soft, smooth feel on my cheeks.
You can apply the tip of the blush onto your cheeks and blend out using fingers as a follow up to the bronzer. This produces a blushing bronze look. In my look below the color actually dominates the bronzer as I only applied a touch. I love shades like this and really wish it was bigger!
Overall, Tarte Bronze & Glow Matte Bronzer & Cheek Tint the easiest way I’ve found to apply bronzer! Plus when I typically apply bronzer I end up doing so with some sort of stain under it or a cream on top so Tarte takes care of both for me with this option. And I’d just like to say one more time, I freaking love this cheek tint shade! Gorgeous!
