Best Bronzer: Sue Devitt Gel Bronzer SPF 40.

This bronzer from Sue Devitt tricked me at first.  The package I received was not labeled, so I thought it was a dark foundation.  When I swiped a small amount on my skin I thought, this is no foundation. I needed to know what it was because it felt so silky soft and my skin and I wanted to figure out how to wear it.

Checking on SueDevittBeauty.com, I quickly learned that this was her Gel Bronzer, with an SPF of 40! Oddly enough, it does not look like a gel, but felt a bit like it as I applied with the enclosed sponge. My curiosity was peaked.

Take a look at the quick description:

Made with restorative Algae Extract that prevents collagen and elastin degradation and preserves elasticity, it also has protective antioxidant benefits from Babao Seed Extract, while Sunflower Seed Oil is deeply moisturizing. Formulated with spherical powders to ensure a luminous but non-oily finish, this bronzer can be blended for a natural sun-kissed look or layered for more intensely bronzed coverage.

That about sums up why it felt like a gel and feels so nice on my skin. The color was a deep rich golden bronze and that made me like it even more.

Sue Devitt Gel Bronzer SPF 40 is available on online at suedevittbeauty.com as well as dermstore.com, select Macy's and Sephora stores.

Best Bronzer: MAKE UP FOR EVER Uplight #23.

To add in a bit of highlighting and bronzing at the same time, I have been using this one from MAKE UP FOR EVER.  It is one of their recent launches called Uplight, and #23 offers the perfect blend of both a highlighter and a bronzer. 

Described as Pearly Golden Flesh, I dab this on the tops of my cheekbones and right under my eyebrows for a glowing look.

Uplight is made of more than 70% water, so it melts easily into the skin and feels fresh and light all day long. Also formulated with nourishing mango butter, it naturally illuminates the skin while adding in the moisture.

Uplight is available right now at Sephora, in store and online, for $29.00.
