Victoria Beckham Beauty #02 Matte Bronzing Brick Review & Swatches

Advertisements

#02

Victoria Beckham Beauty #02 Matte Bronzing Brick ($58.00 for 0.34 oz) contains a light, golden bronzer and a darker, auburn for deeper tanning or light contouring. Both powders had a semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation, were blendable and sat well on the skin with a slight blurring effect.

Note: $58 includes the price of the bronzer duo in its compactness. The refill can be purchased for $42 (which is shown).

The bronzer is said to be “seamless, effortless to wear and [be] impossible to overdo.” It’s also said to have a “soft focus finish” that “blurs[s]”Skin. The brand doesn’t appear to be making any specific claims about pigmentation, although advertising samples show it as opaque.

The bronzers tended to be more pigmented than not, with many shades providing full coverage in a single coat, although they could be used with a lighter hand for more buildable coverage if needed. The texture was particularly finely ground, smooth and silky without being powdery, too thin or too dry. They were evenly picked up with a brush and blended effortlessly as marketed. I would agree that they also have some blurring abilities as they seemed to soften and made my skin look smoother rather than powdery or “flat” like matte finishes can.

They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Treasure

Treasure is a light medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was very smooth, silky and finely ground without being powdery so it blended easily and seemed to soften/blur the skin a bit. It had an opaque color payoff that could be worn well for eight hours before fading somewhat.
