Review: Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer - Tropics

"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. 

Application - Formulation:
I know all the products are different when you go to buy them. Some have more lines of color running through them than others. I preferred a solid color with these items because I didn't know how they would turn out being I don't enjoy to often sparkle in my makeup. I love that it applies smooth to the skin. The mixture feels like silk. The product itself is bronze in color and has a bit of gold reflex in it that makes it look like perhaps there is a bit of shimmer on top of the bronze sheen. It applies light when not wet to the skin and is very buildable. I prefer only a little as I do all of my colors no matter where it is on the face they may be.

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. Tropics is
more of a little at a time sort.

I would definitely recommend this product to friends. I own a few blushers and bronzers from Hard Candy
and I found that I love them. I think this product would be great for any skin tone I have very fair skin so it
works well for a bit of color or a topped contour. I even tried this product as a shadow and it looked great!
