e.l.f Studio Bronzer Review

I Really hope you enjoyed my video review and found it helpful :) so i will give a brief review below for anyone who cant view or watch my video below 
and of course pictures and swatches of all 

e.l.f Studio Bronzer 

e.l.f says:  Create a healthy looking glow all year round! The sheer soft powders provide the perfect hue of color. Blend all 4 colors together to achieve a blend of perfection or choose your favorite color or colors to mix, match and blend.
Warm Bronzer- The warm shimmer that will bring a glow to your face. Ideal for summer or year-round.
Cool Bronzer- The ideal selection of matte colors to achieve a natural looking tan. Ideal for winter or year-round.
Golden Bronzer- An illuminating shimmer that is subtle and radiant. Ideal for summer or year-round.

These Bronzers are only £3.50/$3/€3.80 each and are available on and  You are getting 0.433oz- 12.5g in the Warm & Golden Bronzer and 0.45oz - 13g in the Cool Bronzer which is not much difference but i said i would include that information for you :) :) 

Golden Bronzer 
Taking in sunlight 
Taken in normal light 
I thought when i chose this first that it would be perfect for my skin tone as it seemed to be light enough.  When choosing this i was looking for an everyday bronzer that was light but a little on the noticeable side.  This is where i was very disappointed as this was the first one i bought and unfortunately too light for my skin tone.  
Dont get me wrong this bronzer is a fantastic bronzer especially for anyone with very pale skin but im more fare to medium skin tone and i dont really get any colour pay off from it but i do use this for a highlight be it for my cheeks, eyebrow whatever or where ever i want highlighting.  There is shimmer in this so if you are looking for a matte bronze this isnt for you but it will give a beautiful golden sunkissed glow to anyone who has very pale skin 
This picture is taken in the sunlight as i couldnt get a proper show up photo as it wasnt showing up on my skin.  But you will see 4 swatches and then a round swatch of all colours blended in 
Warm Bronzer 

Now this is my go to bronzer i love it.  Alot say that there is not much difference is this one and the Golden Bronzer but there is this one is a little darker.  Again if you are looking for a matte bronzer this is not for you.  This will suit anyone with fair to medium skintone.  Anyone with a medium to dark skintone will not find any colour payoff from this maybe more of a highlight.   The shimmer in this bronzer give you such a beautiful healthy sun-kissed glow.  I love it i use all four shades together with my e.l.f Powder Brush from the studio line.  This is especially perfect in the summer.  Its so natural even with the shimmer and not overly pigment so you have no fear of over doing it.  Its buildable and easy to use.  The best thing about this is there is no need to add highlighter on your cheeks as you get enough from this. 

Cool Bronzer 

Now this is super dark for me.  Its so so pigmented even with a light hand i look like ive played in mud with the little piggys lol.  But this is absolutely perfect for a woman of colour.  Not only that but its the only Matte bronzer from this selection.  I am not one to waste anything i get and i will and do use this sometimes.  I use the pinky square sometimes as a blush, i use the more lighter brown on this palette for a contour lightly as it gives my face a little definition.  The darker brown i use if i was going on a night out as i would be wearing a darker foundation so it works well for that.   I use the white as a brow highlight.  Some people even use these shades as eyeshadows.
If i was asked would i buy this again i wouldnt really say no as though it doesnt work for me as a bronzer it works for me for all the other ways i use it so i might just buy it again when i run out.

I Think overall these Bronzers are amazing as they each will suit someone but if you are looking for a particular bronzer for whatever needs you have you are better off looking for reviews on each of them to see what is the best one for you....The price for these are incredible and they are very long lasting.  My least favourite out of all is the Golden one as its only good for a highlighter for me.  
So thats it everyone thats my review on these i hope you found it helpful 
I hope you are all well 
Take Care of yourselves

very usefull review!
i particulary love the comparisson photo. i've been changing my mind a hundred times about getting either the Warm or Golden bronzer. i just couldn't tell the difference.

now i think i have it all sorted out :)
the Golden one looks almost exactly like the Sun Kissed powder when you swirl all the colous together.

Hi Nina, I just bought the Golden bronzer online for an everyday glow. Hoping it'll be nice. Might go back onto the website and purchase the darker shade too.
