Bronzer is a year-round staple for me. In fact I wear it more often than blush, not to contour but for everyday sun-kissed aura. Oh the irony of faux tan! I live in Hawaii, ten minutes from the beach for that matter, yet I hardly have time to soak up the sun. Now you understand this whole bronzer bias.
Enter Vita Liberata Trystal Minerals Self-Tanning Bronzing Minerals, which as the name implies, is a loose mineral bronzer with self-tanning properties purported to last for days. Sold as a set (domed kabuki brush included), I apply it over foundation on the side of my face, forehead, neck (and sometimes décolleté).
This bronzer comes in one and only shade and while it appears dark on the swatch, thankfully I didn’t get the muddy look I so despise. Zilla‘s tips? swirl, tap, apply light-handedly, blend, and then build as you wish. But please, know when to stop, no to tanorexic woman! The kabuki brush is of high quality and feels mighty soft on the face.
The bronzing powder is finely-milled, oil-free and matte. If you have medium skin tone with warm undertone (golden or yellow) like moi, this product will naturally enhance your complexion. I did not develop tan because in my experience, it rubs off with a makeup remover and/or cleansing oil. For my makeup below, I applied Vita Liberata Bronzing Minerals over By Terry Cellularose Moisturizing CC cream and Guerlain Meteorites Compact (side of face, forehead, under the chin). Overall, I am delighted to add this beauty to my ever-expanding bronzer stash!
Do you love bronzers?
Have you tried Vita Liberata?

That brush is gorgeous. I need this in my life.
I know what you mean about living near the beach, but never going! I'm so pale, I wonder how the tanning aspect of this bronzer would work for me. I could use a little color!
I think you'll like it. Just go easy w/ the application
Blush looks so gorgeous and natural on you. Love it!
It's a bronzer, I didn't wear blush for this post 🙂
This looks fantastic on you, and I love that brush!! I think you're doing it the healthy way, keeping your tan in a jar and not ruining your beautiful skin! 🙂
Thanks Judy. I like bronzed skin but don't advocate tanning beds or over exposure to UV rays
Yes, I love bronzers!!! I had to put a stop to buying bronzer because I had too many. Wait…is there such a thing as too many???
Nope….from bronzer junkie myself… buy all the things, haha!
I wear bronzers all year, too. These look really nice.
Great to know I'm not alone!
I've been eyeing this powder, but it looks too dark for my complexion. I love that it comes with the brush! P.S.: I also live near the beach, and I only go there to photograph things sometimes 🙂
Yeah, this flatters medium skin tone more. Oh yes, the irony of "beach life"….
I am in the process of trying every bronzer I can get my hands on! haha
I love the shade of this.
You look gorgeous!
This looks amazing on you, Kath! I have lived near the beach for many many years, and almost never go!
This is perfect on you! I love the lip color too!
You look fabulous!
You look gorgeous! This looks like a bronzer I need to have!
It gives such a natural look without being orange!!!!
I'm not great with bronzing since my skin is so pale but I love the look on others.
I don't use bronzers that often but I like the idea of a bronzer that also helps with tanning
That bronzer gives you a perfect, natural, sun kissed look.
I actually never use bronzer — I embrace the pale! But you, of course, look utterly fabulous as always!
Girl… I know all about living near the beach and not going… I am still a 20-30 minute drive away from the beach, but still – I have no excuse. lol You look fabulous.
This looks great on you! I like the idea of a loose bronzer but this shade would never work on me.
I got this to try, and I need to get on it! I need a little Summer glow! <3 You look gorgeous, as usual! <3
I've yet to find a bronzer I'm comfortable using. Most that I tried were too dark even when I used a light hand and tried to blend out. You look freaking stunning though!
I use bronzers on a daily basis – I'm so ghostly pale I need a little warmth to not look dead 😉 You look gorgeous in these shots!
