Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Tower 28 Beauty Bronzino Illuminating Bronzer in the shade Sun Coast.
This product confuses me a bit, I thought it would be similar to the RMS Buriti Bronzer which I really like but no, it’s too sheer to be a bronzer so it’s actually a highlighter but not too glowy.
So as you can guess, I’m not impressed by this, I’ll still review it because I’m sure it might work on darker skin tones but it’s totally off on me.
You can buy it here for 20$
This shade is a light bronze.
It comes in a really pretty box that has a swatch to see the colour, I think is very cute.
The packaging itself is very classic and simple, the shade is written at the bottom and there’s also a description on how to use it which is really nice.
It feels very sturdy and chic.
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
The formula is quite soft and smooth, it has a sheer pigmentation. It isn’t streaky or clumpy, it doesn’t enhance pores or texture and I like it both on top of powder or underneath.
This shade is way too sheer to be a bronzer on me and way too dark to be used as a highlighter. When I got it it was the only shade available so I thought it was just one shade.
If you have dark skin you can use it as a highlighter but it’s way too light to be used as a bronzer, even if you are lighter than me.
I use a stippling brush that’s not too dense and it’s very easy to use. You can use your fingers but I find I have more control with the brush.
On me, it lasts around 6 hours before starting to fade.

This product is a pass for me, the shade is totally off so that’s maybe why I don’t like it, but I’m pretty fair so this shade should have worked on me. It’s too sheer to be a bronzer and it’s too dark to be a highlighter. The formula isn’t bad so if you have a medium skin tone you might like it as a highlighter but as a bronzer is a pass.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
