Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer Baked Luminous Glow Bronzer in Sweet Tea
In March of this year Too Faced released a 7-piece Summer collection which included the very quick sell limited edition Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection ($49) that is now only available on toofaced.com, the hyped about Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick ($21 / 0.4 oz) and also two new cheek products: the Sweetheart Perfect Flush Blush ($30 / 0.19 oz) as well as the Sweethearts Bronzer Baked Luminous Glow Bronzer in Sweet Tea ($30 / 0.19 oz). The Sweet Tea bronzer is similar in texture and feel to Too Faced’s permanent bronzers Sun Bunny, Pink Leopard, Beach Bunny and Snow Bunny all of which have a very soft texture and semi-sheer coverage for a natural look but is absolutely buildable for those who like more definition. I previously owned Sun Bunny, Beach Bunny and Snow Bunny and what I remember loving about Too Faced’s bronzers is that the predominant undertone is always brown as opposed to a red or orange tint a lot of bronzers are formulated with. The Sweet Tea bronzer duo has a touch of soft shimmer to it that is almost undetectable but yet in the right light comes more forward. I find that this specific bronzer is the perfect in between for those of us who don’t particularly want a flat matte color but also don’t want to look like a disco ball either. And those kind of bronzers are very rare to come by, so naturally I jumped to the opportunity to pick Sweet Tea up last month.
Sweet Tea is a bronzing duo comprised of two individual color swatches that can either be used by themselves for a custom glowy and highlight color, or swirled and blended together for a gorgeous and soft romantic look. The lighter swatch is described as a Golden Beige, while the darker swatch is described as a Brewed Tea Bronze both of which have a touch of soft shimmer to it that creates a dimensional color to provide a soft glowy finish for brighter and healthier skin. I like to apply this with a large powder brush for sheer coverage. Sweet Tea is similar in formula style compared to the originals and is quite on the pigmented side, so a light hand is needed in order to layer and build because going in a little too hard can result in a heavy color deposit you may not be able to come back from. That being said the color is easily blended out without becoming patchy or streaky.

My overall conclusion is that this is a very good quality bronzer and color-wise one of the most versatile I own. Besides using this to add warmth and depth to my face, I also like to use the individual colors to create a stunning neutral eye look. The texture is fine milled and super soft, the formula is pigmented and can either be applied as a sheer flush or layered for more intensity. On me this bronzer, as well as the eye look, lasted easily from morning until evening. Honestly, I don’t know why I waited this long to add this bronzer to my collection because I’ve been totally fangirling over it since I bought it. If you’re looking to update your bronzer collection with a new color that does not necessarily compare to others and that comes with a beautiful soft glow, I definitely think you’ll like this one.
