Victoria’s Secret Wild Tropics Summer 2011 Collection: Sun Goddess Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder Swatches & Review

Victoria's Secret Sun Goddess Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder is gorgeous. Let me find out I've been sleeping on Vickies.

Victoria's Secret Sun Goddess Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder

Besides lipgloss, I’ve never tried makeup from Victoria’s Secret. When I think about Vickies, I think about pretty panties, not makeup. However, I use their foundation primer every single day and I love it. So I thought why not try out some makeup. On a recent online VS excursion, I needed a few more dollars in my cart to take advantage of the current promotion. After browsing around the beauty section, I threw Sun Goddess Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder from the new Limited Edition Wild Tropics Summer 2011 Collection in my cart, and hoped for the best. Boy did I luck out.

Let’s start with the packaging. Sun Goddess is enclosed in a metallic plastic case with a see through front to see the bronzing powder. The case is very pretty and made with a mixture of bronze and gold paint. However, the case is very prone to fingerprints as you can see above, and a bit flimsy. I would not want to accidentally drop this.

In the pan, Sun goddess appears as a fusion of bronze and gold with a hint of pink but when swatched you get mostly gold…

When using a bronzer brush to apply to the cheeks you get a nice bronze mix for that sun kissed glow…

Very pretty! As a brown skinned beauty I find that a lot of bronzers are either too light and make you look ashy, or too orange and artificial looking. Sun Goddess has the perfect balance. I know it would look even more gorgeous with a Summer tan. I plan to take this one straight to the beach as it is easy to pack away, and easy to apply with a fluffy bronzer brush. I am loving Victoria’s Secret Sun Goddess Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder, however, I am not loving the price. $16 for .19 ozs is too much for me and I say catch it with a promotion as I did. I paid $7.67, much better. Speaking of promotions, use Spring11 for $15 off $100 orders, $30 off $150 orders and $75 off $250.00 orders. VS has some really cute swim suits and sandals up so shop now at www.victoriassecret.com.
