Bronzer is a year-round beauty staple for me but summer gets the most use out of it. Depending on the finish and shade, I use bronzer to contour, fake a sun-kissed glow, or even as an eyeshadow. 

Swedish brand Face Stockholm has been on my watch list of must-try so when Gilt (invite here) featured it few weeks ago, I caved in. The color I randomly chose was Bronzer 3 Capri, a matte red brown with moderate pigmentation. Worn over foundation, it appeared more orangey-brown to me, something I will probably appreciate when I’m tanning. But as it is now for my medium skin tone, it’s borderline oompa loompa for my taste, what’cha think? In the photo below, I brushed Capri on the side of my face hoping to get a chiseled effect but since the color is off, ‘thought it didn’t look right.

Here are side by side swatches of Capri in comparison to some of my favorites bronzers which I have reviewed in the past: Guerlain Terracota, Nars Laguna, Hourglass Superficial Mirage, Jouer Suntan

Ingredients: Talc, Kaolin, Isostearyl Neopentanoate, Zinc Stearate, Nylon-12, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Propylparaben, Methylparaben, Trisodium EDTA. May Contain: Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

Despite the fact that I didn’t like this particular shade, it won’t deter me from exploring the brand further. In fact, my next-to-try are *drumroll*….lippies of course!

Have you tried anything from Face Stockholm? what would you recommend to me?

Disclosure: My Gilt invite has a link which gives you $25 off from your first purchase; it also gives me $25 once the item ships. Of course once you have an account, you can invite your own set of friends. Don’t want the referral link? Just go straight to Gilt and discover high-end and luxury items at great discounts. It’s addicting, so consider yourself warned!

    That is disappointing the shade didnt work for you and I could have guessed that you would be trying out lipsticks next! ๐Ÿ˜›

    I have not tried anything from Face Stockholm before. You're right about the shade looking a bit too orange on you. I like the Guerlain bronzer on you the best!

    Never heard of the brand but it looks so beautiful on you. Bummer you didn't like it! ๐Ÿ™

    I have seen this brand around, but never tried the bronzer. This color looks gorgeous but a bummer that it is not your cup of tea. I doesnt look that oompa loompa a slight on the orange side but for sure could work in the midst of summer. I agree with Laura above- I totally see you trying lippies next!!! love it!

      Thanks Jamie. I still have to explore this brand further. It's nice to branch out of my comfort zone ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. June 25, 2014 / 4:13 pm

    I think it looks fine on you!

  10. June 25, 2014 / 4:26 pm

    It is a little reddish but hopefully you'll be able to make it work if/when you get a bit more tan!

  11. June 25, 2014 / 7:09 pm

    Too bad the shade didn't work. That meme cracked me up though lol

  12. June 25, 2014 / 8:58 pm

    I haven't tried this brand. I think all of the shades would be too dark for me. But I am super pale!

  13. June 26, 2014 / 2:41 am

    I've never tried anything from this brand – but hahahahah at that meme!

  14. June 26, 2014 / 2:46 am

    Give me all of the bronzers. #kthanksbye ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. June 26, 2014 / 3:09 am

    I actually think it looks nice on you, but what do I know, I'm pretty much a ghost and never wear bronzer!

  16. June 26, 2014 / 4:06 am

    LOL I love your memes. If it was a TAD less orange it would be perfect!

  17. June 26, 2014 / 5:34 am

    I hate the look of looking like an umpa umpa, ahh

  18. June 26, 2014 / 7:02 am

    Bahahahaha – I'm seriously laughing at the Oompa loompa meme.

  19. June 27, 2014 / 1:28 am

    Love the meme! I've tried FS polishes and love em!
