Fenty Beauty ‘Cheeks out freestyle’ Cream Bronzer – Butta Biscuit | A goof-proof FOREVER repurchase!

It’s safe to say that Fenty products have been in my good books lately, you guys already know how obsessed I am with their lavender setting powder, click here to read that review. Well now it’s time for me to fawn over their cream bronzer.

Now I am pretty much a total junkie of cream makeup now, I haven’t quit powders but cream makeup is in my makeup routine every time I wear makeup now. Before I get into this bronzer, I can only speak for the shade I’ve tried – butta biscuit. I’m sure the other shades are nice but my infatuation has everything to do with how perfect this shade is.

This is already going to be a long review so how about I zip it and actually get started with the review?! Cool? Cool!

What are the claims of this product?

This bronzer claims to be a “light as air”, non-greasy cream bronzer that effortlessly melts into the skin for a natural bronzer / soft contour look. It promises to be easy to blend and impossible to over-do and also promises to be sweat and water-resistant. It is also free from fragrance, parabens, oil, and sulfate-free!

Does it deliver?

Firstly, I freaking adore this bronzer! The shade is absolute perfection on my skin tone, it’s sheer but buildable and it is well and truly a goof-proof bronzer. I never make any mistakes or apply too much because the shade works for me so well. I can just build it up as much as I like and never worry about applying too much. I imagine if I went with the shade macchiato I’d have to make sure not to apply as much but butta biscuit is perfect for me so I am not tempted by the other shades. It also blends out super easily and wears well. I do always layer cream bronzer with a bit of powder so that also helps longevity but I cannot say enough good things about this bronzer!

Formula?

The bronzer has a smooth creamy formula that blends super easily (not to the point where it’s practically disappeared) but definitely so easy and full proof. A perfect option for an everyday makeup look – it will save you time.

Pigmentation?

It’s quite pigmented but when you apply it with a brush it distributes the product evenly and sheers out easily as well. Of course, if you want intense pigment, just go a shade darker! I like that it’s buildable and goof-proof!

Longevity?

The bronzer lasts really well. I always layer cream bronzer with a little bit of powder bronzer but it stays on my face all day and doesn’t go patchy or break apart.

Finish

I’d say it has a velvet/satin finish. It isn’t shimmery at all but when it sets, it doesn’t go completely matte. It just has a natural finish.

Easy to use /How does it apply?

The easiest cream bronzer you could ever apply. It was the first bronzer I picked up and I was new to cream makeup so at first, it was a bit awkward but once I got the hang of it I was hooked! I have other cream bronzers which I do love but this is by far the easiest to apply.

Shade range?

7 shades in total and they are all quite diverse. Y’all get by know the shade butta biscut is what I love. It’s quite rare when you are fair-skinned to find a perfect bronzer shade, you get used to bronzers being low key to dark/orange for you but this shade is seriously perfection! I have been tempted by the shade macchiato – I’m sure I’d like it but I know butta biscuit is my number 1 favorite so there’s no good reason to get another shade.

Packaging?

Rose gold compact with a mirror.

How much does it cost?

$50 AUD

How much product do you get?

6.23 grams

Where to purchase it?

Sephora

Rating?

10/10 – if I only could have one bronzing product I’d pick this!

Pros:
  • The shade butta biscuit is perfect for fair skin
  • It’s the easiest cream bronzer to apply
  • Creamy and smooth formula – blends out super quickly.
Cons:
  • I can’t fault it, I would like if this exact shade also came in a stick formula as sometimes I’m in the mood for stick bronzers but I seriously adore this bronzer anyway.
Overall thoughts?

I’ve made my feelings about this bronzer pretty clear! It’s funny when I first tried this bronzer it took me about 2 weeks to get used to it as I was still new to cream makeup. This is why first impressions can only tell you so much and I prefer to take my time with dishing out reviews because you want to be 1000% sure of your thoughts. I reach for this bronzer constantly and it’s easily my favorite cream bronzer sitting at number 1.

Would I recommend this to you / repurchase

If you are fair skin toned or even Light-medium, I cannot recommend this bronzer enough! I am planning to get myself a backup because I already know this will be the first cream product I hit pan on!

And that wraps up this review! I told you guys I was obsessed with this bronzer so this review was basically me gushing over it. Have you guys tried this or any cream bronzer? What bronzers do you love? Drop a comment and let’s have a chat. Thanks for hanging out with me and I’ll see you in the next post.  x B

    That creamy bronzer seems like a great product. I still didn’t try anything from Fenty Beauty, maybe this will be my first products.

    I totally agree with your review, it’s one of the best cream bronzers for sure and it’s sooooo easy to apply! It was one of the first cream products I’ve ever tried and it helped me get over my cream product fear lol.

      The best bronzer to start with if you’ve never tried cream bronzers before! My cream product fear was a mix of application worries and trying to remember not to set my face with powder first. I’ve definitely changed up how I do my makeup in the last 8 months.
