Catrice Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder in 020 Deep Bronze – Review & swatches

The fact that its matte and dirt cheap were the only reasons I wanted to have it in the first place.

Here comes the summer! The matt Bronzing Powder gives your face and body a naturally-tanned and matt appearance. Just a hint of powder is enough to provide a fresh, shimmering complexion and a carefree summer feeling!

My thoughts
I deem myself as one of those who likes contouring every so often as opposed to doing it on a daily basis. I so wanted this it to work like a light contouring powder instead but I guess it fails to do that for me.

The product comes in a clean and sturdy packaging that I like very much. The powder feels very silky to the touch, appears to be finely milled and blends beautifully. It’s not very pigmented but it’s buildable and there is little fallout which is wonderful. I have got 020 Deep Bronze which seems to be leaning a little towards orange. Technically speaking, it’s not a bad thing since it’s a bronzer and not a contouring powder. That slight hint of orange warms up the complexion just right, only if you’re using it as it is. If you’re somebody who expects it to function like a contouring powder, you will be disappointed. Firstly, it doesn’t look like a deep shade to me and secondly, the orange tone seems a bit unflattering for contouring so yes, I am a little heartbroken but I guess it’s my fault altogether lol.

Overall, it’s a good drugstore bronzer – just a bronzer and not a contouring powder! I think I'd hardly ever be using this so I suppose it’s only going to sit and look pretty in my stash.

You might like it if…
  • You are looking for a cheap matte bronzer
  • It feels silky and blends beautifully
  • There is little fallout
You might not like it if…
  • You expect it to work like a contouring powder
  • You think it's not very pigmented

  3. Aww I wish it could have worked better as a contouring powder for you, right now I'm contouring with a pressed powder that is 2 shades darker than my skin tone & it does the job perfectly.

  6. Definitely more like a light warm bronzer than something that could be used for contouring! My best friend loves products like this!
