Review: Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer - Tiki

"We  ♥ our animal friends, We don't test on them"
^^ love that about Hard Candy ;)

Very cute. It is very unique. The top is clear and has a mirror as a border. I took a lot of pictures so you can see the way the design is set. It drops down to the baked product and has a milk white base. On the back it gives information on the product and it explains what it is that is in the product mixture itself. 

 I apply this with a flat top brush for best application pickup. I find that it is a buildable product which is nice but only a little is needed for my desired look. I swipe it above my cheek bones as a highlight rather than a bronzer and down my nose sometimes. It gives pigmented color but sheer is easy to achieve as well. A nice cool highlight but warm enough to add something to the face. It blends into the skin nicely and does not have a terrible amount of fallout.It's packed well into the packaging and leaves the skin with a nice sheen almost a dewey sort of look rather than sparkle. I always get noticed when I have it on people always compliment my skin which is great to hear.    

I thought I should compare since I heard others compare it so it raises question. Baked Bronzer is less pigmented than an MSF, but the color is buildable. I prefer the So Baked Bronzer for my fair skin, I do love my msf's! With one swoop of the brush you can easily get a lot of product with an MSF. Tiki is
more of a little at a time sort.

It's a great product for the cheap price $9.00USD is what I think I paid. It can be used wet or dry, I prefer it dry for a faint color. I've also used it on the eyes as a simple eyeshadow or on the brow bone. 
Works well for any sort of job.

  3. this looks nice, I am debating on getting more of these (I have honeymoon) but I agree you have to apply it wet to get colour payoff.
