Victoria Beckham Beauty #02 Matte Bronzing Brick Review & Swatches

#02

Victoria Beckham Beauty #02 Matte Bronzing Brick ($58.00 for 0.34 oz.) includes a light, golden bronzer and a darker, reddish-brown for deeper bronzing or light contouring. Both powders had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation, were blendable, and sat well on skin with a slight blurring effect.

Note: $58 includes the price of the bronzer duo in its compact. The refill can be purchased for $42 (which is what is shown.)

Formula Overview

$58.00/0.34 oz. – $170.59 Per Ounce

The bronzer is supposed to “blend seamlessly, wear effortlessly, and [be] impossible to overdo.” It is also supposed to have a “soft focus finish” that “blur[s]” skin. The brand doesn’t seem to make any specific claims on pigmentation, though promotional swatches show them as opaque.

The bronzers tended to be more pigmented than not with many shades delivering full coverage in a single layer, though they could be used with a lighter hand to get more buildable coverage, if desired. The texture was particularly finely-milled, smooth, and silky without being powdery nor too thin or too dry. They picked up evenly with a brush and blended out effortlessly, as marketed. I’d agree that they have some blurring capabilities, too, as they seemed to soften and leave my skin look smoother rather than powdery or “flat” as more matte finishes can.

They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Soleil

Soleil is a very light, golden brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The bronzer had mostly opaque, buildable color coverage paired with a soft, slightly powdery texture, though it was finely-milled and blended out well without looking powdery or dry on my skin. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Honey

Honey is a light-medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was very smooth, silky, and finely-milled without being powdery, so it blended out with ease and seemed to soften/blur skin a little. It had opaque color payoff that wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.
