Coloured Raine Mocha Queen Bronzer ($16.00 for 0.3 oz.) is a deep, chocolate brown with delicate, heat undertones and a matte end. It appeared extra red-toned within the pan, however it appeared to have a touch of yellow to my eye when utilized and blended out. It was extremely pigmented the place a little bit went a great distance, so that you’ll need to use a lighter hand when working with this product and construct up, as that made it simpler to work with general.
The feel felt softer and smoother to the contact, although barely drier as a powder–form of like tremendous matte, in a means–that was finest utilized by gently patting it into the overall space one needed (however not sweeping or buffing it on), then stepping into with a clear brush to buff the product into a fair layer. It wasn’t essentially the most tough shade to use, however it wasn’t the simplest both–extra work than most powders are for me (whether or not blush, bronzer, or contour).
It had an inclination to stay closely wherever initially utilized and didn’t need to unfold or diffuse from there, which resulted in a patchier look. The formulation is just workable when utilized over set basis/extremely matte pores and skin as any pure oils or slip on the pores and skin yielded patchy outcomes that I simply couldn’t mix out. It confirmed indicators of fading after eight hours of wear and tear.

The formulation is meant to be a matte bronzer, although the model additionally touted it as multi-use, so the powders may be used to brighten, set make-up, contour, or as an eyeshadow, relying in your pores and skin tone with respect to a given shade. The formulation is meant to be “buttery clean” and provides a “smoothing and pore blurring” impact.
It felt clean sufficient to the contact, however it additionally felt barely drier, which I’ve discovered is a sort of texture that’s typically tougher for me to mix out. This was true with a few of the shades–to various degrees–and it was best to use it over completely matte pores and skin/basis, e.g. over set basis, which made it extra forgiving for mixing. It really jogged my memory loads of the feel AND expertise I had with Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer.
At its worst, the product would adhere erratically wherever I first utilized it however then not need to diffuse or mix out. I had one of the best luck mixing out the shades extra constantly by gently tapping on product the place I needed essentially the most protection (however not diffusing, mixing, or sweeping!) and utilizing a clear, buffer brush to mix extra vigorously. The formulation is best suited for somebody who at all times applies their bronzer over matte or set basis and has no want to make use of it over naked pores and skin/luminous basis.
They have been very pigmented to the purpose the place a little bit went a great distance, so utilizing a lighter hand can be a great way to begin utilizing this formulation after which adjusting as desired. When all the pieces blended out, it regarded matte and clean, although nearly flat-matte on my normal-to-dry pores and skin. They lasted between seven and eight hours earlier than fading visibly.
