Too Faced Sweetie Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer Review & Swatches

Too Faced Sweetie Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer is a new, permanent matte bronzer that launched will be available with the Too Faced Peaches & Cream Collection exclusively at Sephora. This little bronzer contains four different shades that combine together to great a warm glow on skin.

Let’s take a look!

Too Faced Sweetie Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer got an early, one day launch on Monday at but will be available officially tomorrow with the rest of the Peaches & Cream Collection. Too Faced calls this a radiance-boosting bronze with a matte finish. I know, contradicts itself doesn’t it? A quick glance at the design and you’ll notice that it appears shimmery but this is in fact merely an over spray as the bronze below is matte in finish.

One of the key selling points of the Peaches & Cream Collection was the fact it was completely matte but with a finish and a formula that the brand is calling a “comfortable matte”. I know I’m a person that tends to shy away from matte formulas as they can run drier. The really good news is mattes have evolved so much in recent years and become more and more easier to wear and most importantly easy to blend and apply. Too Faced nail it with this bronzer’s formula. As promised, it is a comfortable matte that applies very easily and blends just as well.

This is 0.47 oz in size and $30 in price. The bronzer comes housed in adorable packaging. The compact is completely gold with a very generously sized mirror inside. The face plate features and adorable juicy peach design with the words “Sweetie Pie” on the lid. The compact isn’t weight but it isn’t cheap feeling in the least. It’s quite well made with a gorgeous design that isn’t overly cutesy.

The powder inside is a cross stitch pattern that is made of four different shades of Candied Peach (pink), Caramelized Peach (light brown), Golden Peach (medium brown), and Bronzed Peach (dark brown). I’m not a bronzer girl by any means but when I do use it I tend to like to apply a little pop of blush on top of it (as seen below). Unfortunately, the blush portion in this palette won’t give you that look. The tiny dots of peach are dominated by the bronze-y shades so when you do apply you’ll end up with all bronze, all day. I noticed that the lighter bronze dominated which results in a cooler pay off versus a warmer one. If you had plans to contour with this I don’t think it’ll achieve the look simply because it applies sheerer.

I think the sheerness will disappoint quite a few people. It’s weird to call a bronzer cool-toned but that’s how it comes across to me. It might appear a bit pasty on an olive or tanned complexion. I have a little bit of a tan at the moment and on me it was softer and sheerer. This could be good news or bad news depending how you look at it. I don’t really want a super warm complexion so, the sheerness didn’t really bother me. It looks particularly nice when I apply it first and follow up with a light dusting of a shimmery blush. This gives me a pretty warm radiance. I wouldn’t say you can rely on the bronzer for the radiance though as this has an over spray of fine gold shimmer that disappears after a single swipe of your brush. After that the finish has a soft, satiny matte one but no shimmer or glow.

The formula has a soft, velvety consistency that’s easy to blend. It’s soft but not powdery nor too loosely packed. It feels like a satiny matte to me so not a complete traditional matte finish. I didn’t have issues with it clinging to drier areas but it can look cakey if you layer too much of it on. I don’t think they’ll be any issue with it accentuating pores but again, it can look overly done if you apply too layers. Which by the way is tempting to do because of the sheerer pay off.

As promised this has a very soft, subtle peach scent. When I was applying it I could smell it very faintly but it doesn’t linger. You literally have to stick your nose up close to the powder to catch the scent. It’s very pleasant and not like the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette which had a more synthetic scent. This smells sweeter and more natural. It actually smells like Sanrio Peach Gum.

Too Faced Sweetie Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer is gorgeously packaged and formulating yet disappointingly sheer. I don’t think it’s something you have to rush to purchase!

    This was a skip for me. But am I the only one wondering why they put a shimmering overspray on a matte product? Just seems unnecessary. I guess to make it look pretty when you open the package at first? But once you rub it off, it looks muddy. Glad to hear it’s nothing earth-shattering. I have enough bronzers so I’m glad I used logic this time and did not give into temptation and cute packaging! 😀

    • Isabella Muse

      I call it false advertisement lol! I always see something with over spray and instantly drool and later become disappointed it doesn’t run completely through grrrr! It isn’t at all. The formula is lovely but the shade is sheer and not really incredible or groundbreaking!

    • Agona

      I hate oversprays, especially on shadows. The first swatch is super shimmery and gorgeous but then when you go to use it, the product looks nothing like when you first swatched it because the overspray has now rubbed off. It’s totally false advertising.

  • Janessa

    I actually showed restraint and haven’t bought ANY of the pre-releases for this collection. I’m glad I waited on this one, it was actually one of the items I wanted most. I’m disappointed 🙁

  • Lorraine. E.R

    It sounds as if you dig the formula but the actual shade and pigment levels weren’t your cup of tea- would you say that’s right? If they released more shades of this would you be interested in it?
    I’m pale so I don’t mind sheerness but I’m not sure about the shade. The formula sounds ideal though!

    • Isabella Muse

      I’d be highly interested if they released a shade that actually added the warmth and color to my skin. So, sort of a warming bronzer/blush shade. The formula wasn’t a problem at all! It’s quite a nice texture, blends well, and didn’t fade. It was just the color and level of pigment was def not there 😀

  • Ashley

    I’m wondering if this would be good for me, I don’t really want to look bronzed but I would love to add a little definition. I have contour kits but I have to have an very light hand and the patience to get it just right. My skin is very light, last I checked nc15 in mac. How would this look applied like blush?

    • Isabella Muse

      It’s not really a blush shade at all. It’ll add warmth but not really a tint to your complexion. On really pale skin it might be best applied first and followed up with a little blush so it doesn’t look muddy. Hope this helps!?

  • Pandora

    I decided to skip this one and will probably go for the Kandee Banana Powder instead.
    I’m kinda weird with some of the Too Faced scented products so I have to go in-store to smell them before I purchase.
    However, I just needed to comment that this looks absolutely STUNNING on you!!!

    • Isabella Muse

      I’m really excited for the Banana Powder as well 😀 I swear my nose is broke because I really have to put it right up to my nose to smell anything. OMG thanks! I hated the way it looked on me but thank YOU!!!!!!!!

  • Rochelle Simon

    Thanks for doing the review. I would have been disappointed when the overspray wore off. I don’t like completely matte bronzers.

  • Jan Kelley

    I purchased this and plan to send it back. It doesn’t look like a bronzer when applied. Live and learn. I don’t plan on buying anything else from this collection. Some of the lipsticks look pretty but I loathe matte lipstick on me. Thanks for the fab review.

    • Isabella Muse

      My pleasure Jan! What’s your skin tone just out of curiosity!

  • Nora

    Would you say it’s cool like hoola lite? Also in your picture that showed the pan without the overspray it also looked like the bright peach shade was also an overspray? Or was it just dust?

    • Isabella Muse

      It much more pigmented than Hoola lite but is a cool-toned bronze. The shimmer is an overspray the peach is not.

  • Mary B

    This reminds me of the original Pink Leopard bronzer. They have a new formula where the pink part is more like a peachy-tan, and I prefer the original pinker one. How do you think this compares to the Pink Leopard? Is it anything like the original? Similar to the one they have now? Or nothing like either? If this is like the original Pink Leopard, I’m loading up because it looked perfect on my complexion.

  • Sara

    Love so much your reviews! Going to the US next week and came here to read about my wishlist products <3

    • Isabella Muse

      Thank you SO much Sara! Have fun! Buy lots of makeup ;D
