Ah, the last of my photographic spoils from New York.
Of all the Edward Bess products I’ve seen reviewed, I think his bronzer intrigues me the most. (Read this review from The Non-Blonde or this one from Beauty Look Book and just try not to order it.) “Slight golden glow,” “satiny soft,” “works as a blush” — it sounds sensationally perfect.Â Both Gaia and Lina are slightly darker than I am (in the NC30-35ish range), which is the only thing that gives me pause.
His bronzer ($48) comes in two shades, peachier Daydream and deeper (cooler?), more brown Desert Sun. I wanted to do my light/dark swatches to show you both the true color of the bronzer and what it might look like in more natural application… but the beauty floor of Bergdorf Goodman (which is in the basement) is literally so dark I couldn’t tell how heavy my “light” swatches were. Not wanting to accidentally go overboard, I think I swatched them too lightly to actually be useful.
