Glossier has really nailed it relating to base merchandise. Cloud Paint, Stretch Concealer, and Futuredew have all turn out to be agency favorites amongst our editors, however there was all the time one product that we (and followers world wide) needed subsequent from the model — a bronzer, and that point has lastly come. Introducing: Glossier Solar Paint Luminous Bronzer Crème ($20), which in typical Glossier style, is not like many bronzers we have tried earlier than.
Photo voltaic Paint is described by the model as a “luminous gel-crème bronzer that captures the look and feeling of spending a day within the sunshine,” and proper off the bat, it achieves that. The creamy, light-weight components goes onto the pores and skin easily and evenly and has a doe-foot applicator to make software even simpler. After mixing whichever manner you select (I like to make use of a fluffy brush), it dries right down to a matte consistency however with a luminous shimmer. The components is pigmented sufficient so as to add heat to your pores and skin, however not an excessive amount of that it is overpowering. It additionally has sufficient slip whereas moist to mix earlier than drying down, including to its ease of use.
The Photo voltaic Paint is available in 4 shades — Flare (a lightweight, impartial bronze with gold pearl), Ray (a medium, heat bronze with gold pearl), Warmth (a wealthy, brown bronzer with gold pearl), and Volt (a deep, purple bronze with copper pearl) — and accommodates three key components that Glossier attributes to its distinctive bronzing skills. The primary is “light-reflecting pearls,” which is an ultrafine shimmer designed to present essentially the most practical bronzed glow attainable; the inclusion of each gold and copper hues make sure that it enhances totally different pores and skin tones. The second is “desert milk,” a mixture of plant oils and extracts together with jojoba and aloe, to assist in giving the components hydrating properties in addition to make it simpler to mix. And lastly, there’s “ayursense,” a botanical extract mix, which is historically utilized in Ayurvedic medication for its potential to present pores and skin a luminous glow. The components can also be cruelty-free, vegan, and fragrance-free.
Personally, relating to make-up, I choose much less glittery flecks as I discover them somewhat tough to work with and I am fairly lazy relating to make-up software. Do not get me mistaken: I like a little bit of shimmer, which this components nails, however the quantity of glitter in Photo voltaic Paint is somewhat an excessive amount of for me. Having mentioned that, I believe this new bronzer does obtain what Glossier got down to create: a bronzer that makes you feel and look such as you’re a shimmering, luminous goddess on trip.
After I’m sporting a full face of make-up (which for me is basis, concealer, eyebrows, blush, and mascara), I apply a number of dots to my cheekbones and brow and utilizing a brush, mix all of it collectively, dotting somewhat on my nostril, too. I used to be additionally curious how it might work as an general base, so I combined a small quantity of the Photo voltaic Paint with the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream Light, and it was an ideal mixture to create heat throughout my whole face earlier than making use of concealer to brighten up a number of areas and including some blush to complete.
Just a few different POPSUGAR editors echoed my ideas about Photo voltaic Paint. “Warmth felt somewhat darkish for me however might be one I might use on trip, and Ray is a very nice on a regular basis colour,” mentioned assistant editor Navi Ahluwalia.
All in all, it is not the kind of bronzer I might often go for if I am slapping it on shortly earlier than operating out of the home however it’s enjoyable to mess around with. It completely offers a sun-kissed trip vibe and for the summer time months, so I am into it.
