This spring Make Up For Ever launched a new bronzer named Pro Bronze Fusion that is supposed to be revolutionary in terms of bronzing abilities and effect it creates. It was initially positioned as a breakthrough among bronzing powders and lots of makeup artist all over the world have literally been praising it for more than a month already. And I wondered how good this bronzer really is.
MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Bronze Fusion ($36.00) is an ultra natural and waterproof compact bronzer for a summer glow all year long. No trace, no powdery finish, only color.
Make Up For Ever promises us a lot of good things with this bronzer. It is supposed to create an extremely natural tan with no powdery finish. Due to it’s lightweight formula this bronzer is advertised to be mistake-proof and bendable with luminous bronze finish.
This bronzer comes in a plastic round compact with black bottom and bronze-colored reflective lid. It is so reflective that it shows tons of fingerprints from each touch but it is easy to wipe off. Besides that the packaging does look nice and it is super light and easy to carry with you. It has a standard mirror inside that is large enough to see your face in it but won’t be sufficient to do makeup with it as it is more suitable for touch-ups. The bronzer comes in six shades – from very light to quite dark, three of which are completely matte and there other have shimmer in it for a more luminous finish. As all of the Make Up For Ever products have number-letter labels the matte bronzer received the “M” letter and the luminous ones got “I”.
The shade I got is the second lightest in the range and has shimmery finish – 15I – Soft Iridescent Amber. It is stated to be ideal for light skintones and as I am NW20 and I wanted the luminous finish I thought it should be the right match. This color suits me quite well, doesn’t look too orange, red or terracotta as it has slightly olive undertone and looks more like a real tan on my skin. As it is the gel-powder bronzer the texture of the actual product is quite unusual. It seems a little bit stiff at first that is why it is advised to get the Make Up For Ever Pro Bronze Kabuki Brush to apply it. I didn’t get the exact brush, but I used the stiff kabuki brush I already own and it works perfectly with this bronzer.
It is definitely mistake-proof as it doesn’t matter how hard you try you won’t get too much product on your brush and this bronzer is supposed to be built up for more intense color that is perfect for beginners and those with pale skintones. The uniqueness of the formula lies in its absolute undetectability on the skin. It melts into your own skin making it look tan and luminous without looking powdery and muddy. Even though the shade I got contains shimmer it is invisible on the skin but you get a very luminous finish, when at the same tine the matte bronzer creates more of a satin-matte effect.
I think this bronzer is a very good product for people with fair and light skintones and those who are new to makeup. It will last you for ages but you will have to get a kabuki brush for it as other brushes just won’t work. But I personally find the effect it gives to be very natural and really skin-like. It won’t give you super tan skin, but it will wonderfully warm your complexion up and make your skin more sun-kissed and healthy-looking. It is a very descent product but not revolutionary, worth checking out but not a must-have. I think I will get a lot of use out of this bronzer this summer and a huge bonus is that it is waterproof so it will work nicely on the beach.
