Review-MUA Bronzed Perfection

This review has definitely been a long time coming. I;m sure that most of you must have already read reviews about the MUA Bronzed Perfection that had quite some hype surrounding it, but here's my review on it anyways.


 So first things first, this bronzer is gigantic! It is absolutely huge!! I, honestly, can barely close my fingers around it when I have it in my hand, it's easily double the size of Color Studio Professional blushes, and I used to think that they were huge. That's the first thumbs up for this product, being priced at PKR 500, this is fantastic value for money. The packaging is pretty sturdy for the price, but it does become a bit difficult to open it at times, although I don't think that's a problem since this assures me that if I'm traveling with this, it wont open and shatter or something along those lines.

Next comes the bronzer itself. As you can see from the swatches on my finger tips the product seems shimmery, but in reality it doesn't have any shimmer or sparkle in it. It is a gorgeous, perfect shade of 'brown' that is quite build-able. I can imagine that pale girls could use this with a light hand and it would work wonderfully on their skin tone. For my skin tone, olive, this works amazingly as well. It is very easy to build up. I feel like there's a limit to which we can build it up and after that it starts seeming 'muddy', as if you have dirt on your face so this bronzer wouldn't show up on darker skin tones.

Now on to the other stuff, the product is matte, very nicely pigmented and has a decent staying power of  around 3-4 hours. It is very easy to blend, I use a really crappy brush to apply it with and it still works wonders for me so it shouldn't be a problem for those who are scared of the idea of bronzers and over doing them. The product does fly away though, not too much but it would've been the perfect product had it been a bit more tightly pressed together.

All in all, for me this is an amazing bargain, and even though there's no way I would hit pan on it since it's that huge, I would repurchase it without a doubt if the day came. I would recommend this to girls with fair-medium skin tones, not with darker tones though since the color wont show up. I would personally advice the MUA team to come up with more shades of this that cater to darker skin toned girls as well, since right now, there's only one color available.

Until next time, tc.

  5. Great review! Love the fact that it has no shimmer in it and, most important, that it's a brown colour and not an orange-y one!

  7. Hey nayab, nice to see you back in action :). Im one of your (usually) silent readers but here i have question to ask. Have you seen those pressed powders in squarish pans by MUA that cost i think around Rs 200 a piece? Can the brown one be used as a bronzer as in are those face powders or what?
    Have you tried any of those? Would be really grateful if you or anyone else could help. Thanx and love your blog.
