Colored Raine Caramel Delight Bronzer ($ 16.00 for 0.3 oz.) Is a medium dark brown with moderate warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented where a little went a long way, so it was a lot easier to work with when applied with a feather-lighter brush and dabbed gently on the skin first, and then with a clean blending or buffing brush to around to distribute and polish the paint.
The texture felt smooth, although a little drier to me, and it was applied fairly evenly but seemed more prone to dryness on my skin. I applied this shade four times and was able to get a good result once, a mediocre result (which is shown in the photos) and twice inconsistent / unmixed results. It was just harder to work than I expected. An over-firm foundation was definitely the easiest to work with as it interacted really poorly with natural oils or slips on the skin. It took a decent eight hours before it visibly faded.

The formula is said to be a matte bronzer, although the brand also touted it as a multi-purpose bronzer, so the powders can also be used for lightening, makeup, contouring, or as an eyeshadow shade depending on your skin color in relation to a given shade. The formula should be “buttery soft” and produce a “smoothing and pore blurring” effect.
It felt smooth enough, but it also felt a bit drier, which I found to be a kind of texture that is often harder for me to fade out. This applied to some of the shades – to varying degrees – and it was easiest to apply to a completely matte skin / foundation, e.g. B. on a firm primer, which made the mixing more forgiving. It actually reminded me a lot of the texture AND experience I had with Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer.
In the worst case, the product would stick unevenly wherever I first applied it, but then wouldn’t want to diffuse or fade out. I’ve had the best luck fading out the hues more evenly by gently tapping the product that I wanted the greatest coverage on (but not diffusing, mixing, or sweeping!) And using a clean buffer brush to mix more vigorously. The formula is best for someone who always applies their bronzer to matte or firm ground and doesn’t feel like using it on bare skin / glowing foundation.
They were very pigmented to the point where a little went a long way. Hence, using a lighter hand is a great way to start using this formula and then adjust it as needed. When everything was faded out, it looked matte and smooth, even though it was almost flat matte on my normal to dry skin. They lasted between seven and eight hours before visibly fading.
