Packaging:

The Pupa Milano Desert Bronzing Powder comes in a plastic box with a transparent circular frame and a brown colored lid embossed with the brand name in gold. The box closes securely to preventing powder spilling, and once you open it you’ll find a practical mirror to facilitate application. Keep in mind that the box is fairly big in size though, so you might find it challenging to fit in your makeup bag. It doesn’t come with an applicator brush either, so make sure that you have your own.

Available colors:

This bronzer is available in two colors: Honey gold #2 and Amber Light #3.

Tested color:

Amber Light #3.

Texture:

The Pupa Desert Bronzing Powder is compact, not loose. It is very sheer and easy to blend.

Smell:

This bronzer has a faint, pleasant smell.

Application:

To bronze your face entirely, use a blush brush to distribute the powder. Make sure to apply a minimal amount of powder to the brush as to avoid overdoing the look.

Effect:

What we first noticed about this bronzer was its matte finish that made it suitable for daytime wear, emphasizing the natural, unexaggerated look we’re opting for, while other bronzers tend to focus more on adding shimmer to the face. Upon application, the Desert Bronzing Powder gives off a sheer, bronzing touch without leaving any brown or orange patches as it usually happens with bronzer. To avoid that, be keen on spreading it out with a wide brush when applying it to the whole face in order to blend it in well with foundation or any other products you have on. The bronzer’s effect lasted for around 5 hours post-application on normal skin. It is best to retouch your look afterwards.

We also applied this bronzer on the neck and upper chest while wearing a strapless dress, which matched the warm, bronze color of the face. However, it is best to avoid places high in temperature if you have this bronzing powder applied to your face or body as it could clump up due to sweating.

Price:

The Desert Bronzing Powder retails at 25.3$ per 35 grams, which is considered to be cheap in comparison with other bronzing powders. Guerlain’s Terracotta Bronzing Powder retails at 72$ for 10 grams only. Similarly, Caudalie’s Teint Divin Mineral Bronzing Powder retails at 39$ per 10 grams, whereas Nuxe Bronzing Powder Eclat Prodigieux sells at 49$ per 25 grams.

    A nice bronzer with a realistic shade (not too orange, not too brown). It does have sparkle or glitter in it which I usually strongly dislike especially in bronzers but its very minor and you can’t really see them on your skin.
    It lights up your general appearance and makes your skin looks more “alive”.
    one guideline you have to remember would be “less is more”, you just need the scarcest add up to bronze your face.
    Also pricing is great, you a big sum for a small amount and it can basically go on forever.

    Replaced my Holy Grail Bronzer

    “My first reaction when I saw it in the box was “that is definitely bigger than in pictures”. The package is bigger than the palm of my hand and contains around 35g of product! (You’ll be bronzed for life) First of all, the shade of the bronzer is my absolute favorite. Its a neutral toned bronzer so you won’t feel orange after using it. It has tiny specks of sparkle in it which really don’t show up on the face. The product is heavily pigmented so go in with the lightest hand, but don’t worry it blends effortlessly. I do have to admit I’ve been using this to contour as well and I really love how it applies on the face since its not too orange and its a matte bronzer. The packaging is huge so you can fit the biggest fluffiest brush you have and there will still be space. It comes with a gigantic mirror so you can apply your makeup using it. I was afraid it may be bulky for my makeup bag but it has been traveling a lot with me lately (so dont worry too much about the size)”

    “Pupa compact bronzing powder is quite amazing! I heard so much about it from friends of mine but never used it before, until Ounousa introduced it to me. From the very first time I tried this product, I noticed the difference between this brand and other brands. Firstly, pupa bronzer is suitable for daily usage and gives a natural look without showing exaggeration like other bronzers. His matte finish gives the face a silky texture with a shiny look. I also use pupa bronzer for nighttime wear, the only difference between the two looks is that I add little more layers (without exaggeration) to emphasis a dramatic look for night or formal occasions. In addition to this, I love the packaging that includes a mirror inside, it helps me finalizing my makeup anywhere on site without carrying extra makeup kit. I recommend this product for all occasions. It’s a must have bronzer!!”

    Bronzer for days... literally!

    “I bought this product almost two years ago and I swear I was still using it until a while ago. The packaging is very big compared to other bronzing powders and it last forever. What’s great about t being this size is that the mirror inside it is also big which is very practical in case you want to retouch your makeup in the middle of nowhere… Now about the product itself, it is highly pigmented and lasts the whole day, I actually used it as a bronzer on my entire face as well as a blush. Ironically, its downside is also its advantage: THE SIZE! You can only carry it with your if you have a travel-size handbag because it would never fit in a small purse, what a dilemma!”

    “The good quality mirrored round plastic compact contains a whopping 35g of product that will last years. The powder is matte with the right warmth excluding any orangy tones when applied, I got mine in shade 2 which is a bit dark for my fair skin but I could rather make it work by applying the littlest amount possible. It blends so easily and is well pigmented witg little fallout. The big size makes it possible to insert a big mirror which is handy but makes it also not so suitable to take along in your makeup bag for touchups.”

    The Pupa Bronzer comes in a big round package with a big clear mirror making it perfect to use when no mirror is available. But this big package makes it more of a stay at home makeup product. I felt that the color is a bit darker than my skin but the mat feel and the smooth covering is just perfect. Finally it smells really good and lasts almost all day.
