I was never a fan of bronzers but Too Faced’s Caribbean In A Compact – Snow Bunny and Stila’s One Step Primecolor in Bronze Babe completely changed my mind. Having fair skin, I was always afraid to look orangey and streaky with bronzers, but these products – one in powder form and one in cream form – completely changed my mentality and now I can finally have fun with summer makeup!

Too Faced’s Caribbean In A Compact in snow bunny is the perfectly natural bronzer. Enjoy year round bronzed perfection with the most natural and skin-perfecting glow this side of the Caribbean. The silky golden bronze warmth combined with a delicate pink, white shimmer, and fawn shimmer mimics a natural “just-back-from-vacation” glow.

The compact itself is really cute – even the picture doesn’t do it justice! I was giddy with glee when I took it out of the packaging. The inside is just gorgeous – with the prettiest shimmery shades. There is nothing orangey about the colors – they go on my skin and blend beautifully with a kabuki brush. The color lasts all day. Because of the light shimmer shades (pink and white), this powder gives my skin a very nice natural glow.

For the price (US$27.00), this is a steal! This also comes in California In a Compact version which I find a little dark for my fair skin. This one is just perfect for my skin tone.

*For your information, I am 34 and have dry and dehydrated sensitive skin, and fall under the ‘average’ Japanese skin tone which is fair with light yellow undertones. When I used to wear foundation I used the OC20 shade by Maquillage (Shiseido).

    How do you wear this compact? Do you use it all over your face or just in some areas? Thanks for your help!

    Hi Judy!

    You can use it as a blush or all over – it totally depends on how you feel about bronzers and your skin tone. I personally find that on fair skin it’s better to use it as a blush and I use it on my cheeks, dust it here and there on forehead, tip of nose and chin. The best way to use it is with a kabuki brush – it picks up all 4 shades equally and you swirl the brush around as you dip into the compact so the color is more or less even.

    There are similar products out there – Laura Mercier and Bobbi Brown each has one but at least US$10 more expensive but in the end this one is good for the money and the quality is good. 🙂

    Dear Judy,

    Thank you thank you! Sometimes I didn’t even know/think anyone is reading my blog so it’s good to see that you like it here! 🙂

    This one can get dark – you can layer it. I find that if I don’t swirl my brushes on the lighter shades this can be dark. I like how you can control the degree of lightness or darkness with this one.

    Great to see fellow Canucks here! 🙂
