Review & Swatches: Too Faced Peach Leopard Brightening & Perfecting Bronzer



I was at Sephora the other day and was checking out Too Faced's whole line of bronzers. Sun Bunny, Snow Bunny, Beach Bunny and Pink Leopard all looked too shimmery when I swatched them on the back of my hand. Also, Pink Leopard was more of a highlighter for my skintone. I couldn't even use it as a blush because it was too light. Peach Leopard looks shimmery in the pan, and it looks a little bit shimmery when the natural sunlight hits my face. However, when I'm inside under artificial lighting, it looks semi-matte with a gorgeous sheen.

I definitely can't use this to contour because it's too peachy, but it looks amazing on my cheeks alone and acts as a blush and bronzer for me.

The product is sheerer than my Dior Bronze Original Tan (review & swatches) and Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder (review & swatches), which is a good thing for me personally because I can control the intensity of the color, and adjust accordingly. Also, I recommend using a dense brush to apply because if you use a fluffy brush, it won't pick up any color.

I think lighter beauties can pull this off as a bronzer because Peach Leopard is not Oompa Loompa orange. It's a more natural tone that can bring out the warmth in fair and lighter complexions.

For reference, I have a medium skintone and I'm a Mac NC30/35, Dior Forever 021 mixed with 031, MUFE HD 127 and L'oreal True Match W4.

The case packaging is not as nice as the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder, but the leopard print is cute.

It costs $28 for 9 grams at TooFaced's online store and Sephora.

Do you use Peach Leopard as a blush/bronzer or to contour?
