I’m down with the bronzer. You could even say I’m in love with bronzing up the skin, and I know I’m not the only one. If I purchase a bronzer, it must be finely milled, not overly glittery, and most definitely has to blend easily. There’s nothing worse than a patchy bronzer, hence why I love Hourglass products in general, but more specifically their bronzers.
I’ve already done a full review with swatches on Radiant Bronze Light, but wanted to do a comparison with Luminous Bronze Light since it is the bronzer included in the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette.
Radiant Bronze Light is specifically targeted for medium to dark skin tones. It is more orange in tone, and it looks more orange when it is swatched, but it doesn’t come off that way on the skin. I have a medium tan skin tone (MAC NC40) and this shade isn’t too light or too dark on my skin. As expected from an Hourglass product, it blends beautifully and adds that “lit from within” glow/warmth to the skin without being too heavy.
Luminous Bronze Light is for fairer skin tones so it’s not as orange in tone. In fact, it is more like a nude peach shade. This bronzer must be the bronzer equivalent of the jeans from Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants because even though it’s for fair skin tones, it shows up on my skin, which I was not expecting! It’s more subtle than the Radiant Bronze Light, but is still enough to bronze up the skin and make it look sunkissed. Like Radiant Bronze Light, it blends like a dream and gives you that “lit from within” bronze to the skin.
If you have a NC40, and maybe even up to a NC42, skin tone then both of these bronzers would work for you as a bronzer; it just depends on whether you like a more subtle bronzer or something that is more intense. If you have a darker skin tone then Luminous Bronze Light would work more like a nude peach blush.
