Too Faced Bronzed & Poreless Pore Perfecting Bronzer

I dunno how they do it but Too Faced makes me want to wear bronzer. The new Too Faced Bronzed & Poreless Pore Perfecting Bronzer is another easy fix for the bronzer scaredy cats out there with a smooth silky formula that looks brilliant no matter how heavy handed you are.

I should know I apply blush and bronzer with a paint brush or at least it looks that way sometimes 🙂 I have such a heavy hand with bronzer and highlighters!

So no nonsense bronzers like this are absolutely a joy to use.

Take a peek!

Too Faced Bronzed & Poreless Pore Perfecting Bronzer ($30) is a sheer, lightweight golden shade of brown. It’s a suitable shade for those with fairer, paler skin as the formula is very forgiving on such a skin tone as it won’t look muddy, brown, or overly orange. Believe me bronzers can be over done so easily but this formula is a soft, silky texture that’s finely milled and very easy to buffy onto cheeks and face while getting picture perfect results each time.

The natural warmth of the shade is never over done and runs sheerer so fairer skin will be able to work with it easily while medium to darker tones will find it works to deepen their own natural skin tone and add a touch of a sunny glow. The same properities of the original Primed & Poreless is find in this formula so the matte bronzer has a soft, perfect finish that doesn’t accentuate fine lines or pores but merely melds over them like a second skin.

Seriously, I can’t do bronzer well but if I can apply and use this anyone can.

If you’re one for contouring it’s an excellent shade to do so.

    I think Too Faced bronzers are the best for beginners! I regret not buying a Too Faced bronzer last summer (when I was in NYC), but this time I won’t miss it! This shade is perfect for fair/light skinned girls (like me) <3

    Just a question… is it limited edition or permanent?


  • carrie

    That sounds awesome! I have always felt I can’t do bronzer either…same issue with the heavy handand fair skin

    • the Muse

      oh I am awful carrie! looking like snooki ;-D I have to be careful with bronzer!

    • the Muse

      me either you know me shimmer a holic but actually you don’t really need shimmer, it applies VERY easily and you won’t even notice the lack of it as it creates this really natural halo of color.

  • Nat

    I like their “ski bunny” bronzer, it’s light enough for me to use on my super pale skin 🙂

  • Christi

    Have u tried applying with a stippling brush like a Mac 187 or the smaller 188? That’s what I always use & it’s perfect for bronzer and very pigmented blush.

    • the Muse

      yeah, I typically use a fiber brush or a fan brush to apply, keeps me from being too heavy handed as I am awful with bronzer! ;D

    • yelena

      muse have u compared wearing time between this and the new endless summer 16hr bronzer? just curious as I’m only allowing myself to get one 😉

      • the Muse

        honestly 16 hour doesn’t go anywhere, even when I’m sweating through a work out. It just sticks. Bronzed and Poreless I can get through a work day with (haven’t tried it in heat yet though or a hmud climate). Applied around 7ish am and lasted well into 5pm without really loosing any glow, even the blush I wore on top faded by five but the bronzer was still in place. Again this is in cooler weather though (didn’t try it through a workout yet). If you want the extra long wear through def go with 16 hour, it has this formula that seems to meld to skin versus the powdery-ness of Bronzed and Poreless. But I will say if you’re fairer, this is a flattering shade, it’s very sheer and light, gives a touch of sun but not orange, brown bronze-ness.

  • Robin

    Does this bronzer smell like chocolate like the other TooFaced ones?

  • Alexa

    I LOVE their original primed and poreless pressed powder…. Already hit bottom! Can this be used a tinted super light foundation like that, or, is it really just for contouring/bronzing, etc? As in, can I put it all over my face and look sun kissed and not like a crazy person? 😉

    • the Muse

      mmmmmMmmmMmmmmmmm kinda sorta kinda…it depends on skin tone alexa, I think perhaps better for bronzer, the shade has that warmth of a bronzer and might look odd as an all over could dry, never hurts to try right?! 😀

  • Liz

    In color, is this lighter/darker compared to the milk chocolate bronzer?

    • Stephanie

      It’s def lighter. I accidentally ordered Chocolate Soleil, went to the store to exchange for Milk Chocolate and yikes! Still too dark on my pale skin. The girl recommended this one and it’s prefect! Light honey brown is the perfect description- if you’re super pale, try this one!
