Tarte Amazonian Clay Mineral Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess ($29) is a warm, dark bronzer with a slight sheen. Tarte says, "its a long wearing mineral-based bronzing powder infused with Amazonian clay for a healthy, natural looking glow." Tarte products are cruelty-free, and made with high-performance natural ingredients great for skin! These healthy long-wear formulas contain numerous vitamins, minerals, natural fruit, and plant extracts....And are formulated without parabens, phthalates and synthetic fragrances, just to name a few!
Normally, I'm very picky about shimmer and sheen! I don't like it in foundation, blush, lipstick or bronzer. The only place I like any type of glow is on my lids or highlight. However, after reading numerous sephora.com reviews I just couldn't help but see what all the fuss was about (beauty geek problems)! I'm very happy to say that this bronzer did not make me look like a disco ball! In fact, it did give my skin a lovely brown sun-kissed glow! By glow I mean it does have a slight sheen, unlike something like Benefits Hoola that is completely matte no shimmer or sheen. The texture is incredibly soft, finely milled, and velvety. The powder itself is effortless to apply; and blends easily.
My favorite way to apply this is in a 'C' shape, starting at my forehead and ending on the apples of my cheeks. It really warms up my face for summer! For an all over bronzer I've been using the Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder, and my favorite contour at the moment is L'oreal True Match Powder.
Overall, Park Avenue Princess is perfect to warm up your summer complexion and add a bit of radiance! The bronzing powder is most suitable for medium to deeper complexions. However, it does blend out beautiful, I will do a Face of the Day soon using it. I'd love to hear your favorite way to warm up your summer complexion??!
