My love for bronzers is strong and having tried almost every cruelty-free bronzer on the market I have created a list of my top ten favorites. This “Best Bronzers” list is not in any particular order because I think all of these are amazing and love them equally.
I try everything from cruelty-free drug store to cruelty-free prestige brands. It is very easy to find great bronzers since many of the top rated ones out there are actually cruelty-free!
♥ Too Faced – Chocolate Soleil
The Too Faced chocolate bronzers are matte and available in 3 different shades: Milk Chocolate (light to medium), Chocolate Soleil (medium to deep), Dark Chocolate (deep to tan). The bronzers are infused with real cocoa powder for added skin benefits. The texture is very soft and pigmented.
♥ Physicians Formula – Butter Bronzer Murumuru
This bronzer is ultra soft, creamy, and light weight for a buildable bronze.
♥ Urban Decay – Beached Bronzer
A universally flattering super soft bronzer. It is available in two shades: Sunkissed (universal) and Bronzed (deeper).
♥ Tarte – Amazonian Clay Bronzers
A highly rated vegan bronzer that is available in matte and shimmer. The ultra matte versions are offered in 2 shades: Park Ave Princess (universal matte) and Hotel Heiress (deep bronze). These bronzers are waterproof as well, so perfect for the beach!
♥ Viseart – Theory Palette
The bronzer in this palette is a highly pigmented true bronze. Meaning, this color would not be ideal for contour, being a little more orange than the others listed.
♥ The Balm – Bahama Mama
A deep matte bronzer perfect for summer time. Also, can be used as a contour powder since it is more taupe than orange in color.
♥ Wet n Wild – Color Icon
This over-sized bronzer is SPF 15, oil free and winner of the Oprah Magazine O-Ward. Plus, it is only 3.99 at your local drug store!
♥ Pixi Beauty – Beauty Bronzer + Kabuki
A silky, pigmented bronzer available in 2 shades: Subtly Suntouched (light) and Summertime (deep bronze). Both colors also come with a super soft kabuki brush as well.
♥ E.L.F. Cosmetics – Baked Bronzer
A high quality and affordable shimmer bronzer, perfect for a sun kissed look. This bronzer is also infused with jojoba, rose, sunflower, apricot, and grape oils for added skin care benefits.
♥ Laura Geller – Bronze-N-Brighten
Baked with swirls of light pink shimmer, this bronzer delivers a glowing tan without any orange. Available in two shades: Fair and Medium.
