Mented Cosmetics Yacht Life Bronzer ($22.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with reasonable, heat undertones and a matte end. It wasn’t too orange-leaning and was extra reddish and rusty utilized and blended out on my pores and skin. It had practically opaque colour protection, which was simply constructed as much as full protection if desired.
The powder felt smooth and easy sufficient to the contact, however there was additionally some dryness current, which translated right into a product that clung to my pores and skin and emphasize my pores and skin texture. It’s not one thing I’ve skilled too usually with cheek colours, and I’ve solely barely dry pores and skin (on the time of this overview) however many different merchandise that usually apply superb have continued to use simply as properly.
The best way the powder sat on my pores and skin was a difficulty I skilled throughout all of the shades within the vary, together with the lighter ones–very a lot jogged my memory of what I skilled with Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Bronzers (which some actually appear to like, so whereas true of all merchandise, your mileage could positively fluctuate!). This shade wore properly for seven and a half hours earlier than fading visibly.

The method is meant to be “wealthy in pigment” and “effortlessly blendable.” The pigmentation was usually semi-opaque to opaque, and if not full protection, definitely buildable to get there. The feel felt smooth, finely-milled, and wasn’t too powdery (nor too firmly pressed into the pan), however there was some dryness there.
On my barely drier pores and skin (at the very least, on the time of testing), the method wasn’t as blendable or as flattering to put on because it appeared to emphasise dryness. The method was best to use and mix out over a extra luminous base that was evenly set with translucent powder, however it wasn’t ideally suited over a extra matte basis or over my naked pores and skin. The bronzers lasted seven to eight hours on my pores and skin earlier than exhibiting fading.
