Anastasia Caramel Cream Bronzer Anastasia Caramel Cream Bronzer ($ 35.00 for 0.4 oz.) Is a medium, peach brown with warmer, orange undertones and a “naturally matte” finish – the kind that is skin-like but doesn’t add sheen. The texture was light, pliable without being thick or overly creamy, which gave it a great glide when applied, allowing the product to work well on both bare skin and foundation.
It had medium buildable pigmentation applied with a brush and slightly higher coverage when used with fingertips. The product can be applied wonderfully and blended well. The color lasted a good eight hours before noticeably fading.

The formula should be “buildable” and “easily blend” into a “matte, seamless finish of the second skin” that can be applied “on bare skin” or “over make-up”. They can be used to add warmth and / or definition (by choosing a shade two to three deeper).
The texture was emollient, light and thin with moderate glide, which made it easy to apply to bare skin as well as foundation, even more matte bases. They seemed to be more pigmented when swatching on my arm, but in practice they had a medium opacity that could easily be shimmered out further or built up for greater opacity if desired. This was because the formula had enough lubricity and spreading that it naturally shimmered out as it was applied that you had to layer for a truly opaque coverage.
For greater coverage, apply with your fingertips and allow to dry a little before veneering. Apply with a dab brush for greater coverage. It was a very forgiving formula and hard to overdo.
The formula dried to a matte finish, but seemed to let my skin through so it didn’t look flat or dry. They wore well for eight hours before they visibly faded on me.
