Park Avenue Princess: Mineral Powder Bronzer - Tarte

I purchased this bronzer almost two years ago, but for some reason re-discovered it this past month. It's Park Avenue Princess's Mineral Powder Bronzer, in the shade Tarte. Honestly, I can't make up my mind on this product. Some days I love how it looks, and other days I think it has too much of an orange undertone. I feel like the secret to it is application- specifically to avoid over doing it.

The packaging is very nice, as one would expect from an expensive cosmetic purchase ($29.99). I purchased mine at Sephora and it is still sold there today. It closes very well since there is a magnetic closure, so you don't have to worry about putting it in your purse. There's also a small mirror included in the compact.

It was my first mineral powder bronzer and I'm thankful to say that my skin never broke out from it. It last all day long, so no need for touch-ups. However, it is rather hard to blend so I'd be very careful when applying it with a brush (I use a kabuki brush for this bronzer).

I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who has very fair skin and dislikes shimmer. I'm personally not a huge fan on bronzers with shimmer, but I still find this one wearable.

Overall, it is a nice product. But given the price and that it doesn't really suit me every time I wear it, I don't think I'll be repurchasing it.

I'm now on the look out for a new matte bronzer and will probably check out NYC's selection. Let me know if you have any suggestions for a good bronzer :).
