7 Cream Bronzers Under $15 to Shop on AmazonMay 27, 2022
NYX Professional Makeup Wonder Stick
A dual-ended contour and highlighting stock is the quickest way to create the appearance of a chiseled jawline and cheekbones. We love this one for the wide range of shades it comes in and how effortlessly the buttery formula glides onto the skin.
Maybelline New York Fit Me Shine Free + Balance Stick Foundation
The best part about cream bronzers is that there is never a shortage of options. You can always use a foundation that’s a couple of shades darker than your skin tone to act as the perfect dupe. If you choose a foundation over an actual cream bronzer, we recommend opting for a stick formula because it will give you a precise application and a similar finish. This one also works to minimize the appearance of pores, absorb excess shine and give a matte finish.
NYX Professional Makeup Bright Idea Stick
We’re obsessed with these sticks because they’re infused with shimmer to give a true lit-from-within luminosity, Reach for the shades Bermuda Bronze, Maui Suntan or Sandy Glow to give your skin a summery radiance, no matter the current season.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Shaping Stick Foundation
Another stick foundation, this one delivers medium-buildable coverage that stays put for up to 24 hours. It feels surprisingly weightless on the skin, which means it won’t look cakey or drag on top of your foundation. For a natural-looking finish, we recommend rubbing the stick foundation on the back of your hand, then using either your fingers, a sponge or a stippling brush to apply it to your face.
Black Radiance True Complexion Creme Contour Palette
For under $10, this palette has everything you need to warm up your complexion, including two bronzing shades that you can wear separately or mixed together, plus a subtly glowy illuminator. It’s available in two shades suitable for light to medium and deep complexions.
Undone Beauty Water Bronzer Stick
Available in four shades, this water-based bronzer looks ultra-pigmented in the tube, but it’s deceptively sheer, making it perfect for adding a glow to minimal, no-makeup makeup looks. Coconut water gives the formula a subtle sheen and makes it incredibly easy to blend out.
Half Caked Candy Paint Bronzer
It can be difficult to find bronzers deep enough to warm up dark skin tones, but this super pigmented (and super cute!) product does the job with ease. A little goes a long way, so apply sparingly at first.
