For pale girls like myself, finding that perfect bronzer can be a bit of a struggle. A lot of bronzers are too orange, too glittery, or apply blotchy. I've found a great affordable bronzer option with the Sephora Collection Bronzer Powder in Bora Bora* ($21 CAD)!
"These exceptional bronzing powders feature an embossed sun pattern and a smooth, ultra-sheer texture to blend perfectly with skin for an ultra-natural, healthy glow that lasts. The matte or subtly shimmering shades create a natural, tanned effect that is extremely blendable and doesn’t streak." - Sephora
I really like the packaging of the Sephora Collection Bronzer Powders - the golden sun design on the top of the compact is fun! The powder itself is embossed with a sun design, which actually holds up even after many uses. This formula is incredibly soft and smooth, and blends into my skin effortlessly. I like to use a large fluffy brush to apply this bronzer all over my face. The shade Bora Bora brings a beautiful warmth to my skin that looks quite natural. If you have very pale skin, then this shade might look a bit orange, but I think that it looks great with my skin tone. Since this formula does have shimmer in it, I wouldn't use it contouring.
If you're looking for a high-end yet affordable bronzer, then I think you'd really like the I really like the Sephora Collection Bronzer Powders! There are 6 different shades to choose from, some matte and some with shimmer, so there's bound to be something for everyone's tastes and skin tones.
