There’s nothing sexier than bronzy, glowing skin—sans the sun damage, of course. When you get the look right, it’s SO right. But get it wrong, and you risk looking like you had a run-in with an Oompa-Loompa (not pretty). Nail the golden goddess look every time with Beached Bronzer.

Dust this silky powder on your face or all over your whole bod—and look like you spent a week hanging out on the sunny beaches of Fiji (rather than in a drab, windowless office).

Our finely milled, super-soft formula applies smoothly, doesn’t streak, and creates a radiant glow that won’t quit. Get Beached (not burned); these universally flattering matte shades provide sheer, natural-looking coverage every time.

If you swore off powder bronzers because they always felt dry and applied unevenly, you’ll be blown away by how different Beached Bronzer is. Wende loves to use this formula after contouring to make her skin look less flat and more dimensional. Finely milling the powder gives it an ultra creamy texture that feels amazing on your skin, while HPP (Highlighter Performing Pigments) Technology provides rich color, long-lasting elements and the perfect level of coverage. And wait until you see how easy it is to use!

One glance at the artwork on our Beached Bronzer compact, and you’ll feel instantly transported to a tropical island. (Picture yourself on the sand gazing up at palm trees, and you’ll get the idea.) We even included a full-size mirror—perfect for applying on the go.

Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free.

This matte bronzer is so pigmented!! I came across it at Ulta. An employee approached me and asked if she could try it out on me just to see how it looks on darker skin. Well, it looked so good I ended up buying it that day lol! Like I said, its very pigmented and great for chiseling out those cheekbones. A little definitely goes a long way with this one. The bronzer is matte so there no shimmer, but it applies like a dream. Its so smooth and soft, and absolutely no caking
Like NONE!! Its buildable, but start with a light hand due to the pigmentation.

I would say this is probably not for you if youre looking for something more natural, but if youre curious, its definitely worth a try. I used to wear a lighter, more natural bronzer, now i cant live without this stuff!!

This is a great bronzer. It's super lightweight and applies very evenly. It feels very smooth on the skin. This is an absolutely beautiful bronzer got it isn't too shimmery to where it looks over the top and like you obviously have a bunch of makeup on. It gives your skin a nice bronzy glow. Some bronzers can make you look dirty and muddy but this one doesn't. Urban Decay Beached Bronzer

I love this bronzer. The packaging is gorgeous and streamlined. It's a warm-toned bronzer, perfect for actually mimicking a tan or sun. That being said, if you're looking for an effective contour color this probably is not that item. I prefer bronzing and "strobing" to contouring, so I adore this product and it's the only bronzer I own. I'm light-medium to medium skin toned depending on the season and this shade covers me year-round. I love that it's matte; I regularly use it with luminous or dewy bases, then go in with a highlighter on top. It allows me to give myself the dewy look I adore without being glittery like many other well-loved bronzers. I have recommended this to many friends of many undertones and they all love it.

Review for: Bronzed more...
I really like this bronzer not as much for a contour bit more of an overall glow. The only thing that I find trouble with when using it as sometimes I feel like it doesn’t go on super smooth over my foundation and powder but that could be my application and not the product because it doesn’t do that all the time. I really like the color and don’t find it super overpowering but I also think it gives me a nice glow when I have a pretty dark spray tan onWithout making it super orange

This bronzer should be used with a gentle touch. I have pale skin & ended up with a Rachel Dolezal situation the first time I put it on because I was not prepared for the intensity. But if you apply a thinner layer, it actually looks great! Not orangey at all. It’s super matte also, which I love. No shimmer. The price point is reasonable. I will definitely buy this again!

I love Urban Decay, so I hate to say this, but I absolutely HATED this bronzer. It barely even showed up and where it did show up, it was so, so patchy. It just looked so awful on me and I ended up giving it away. I don't understand how so many people like this product because for me, it was just the worst. I recommend the NARS Laguna bronzer. Stay away from this.

I really enjoy this bronzer in the shade ‘Bronzed.’ Since I have a deep medium skin tone, it’s hard at times to find a bronzer that will be dark enough on my skin that is not orange-tinted. I love how easily this applies and blends! My only wish would be for it to last longer- but maybe a proper setting spray would fix this:) Urban Decay Beached Bronzer

This bronzer is the best. I got this as a gift from my husband. He went inside Ulta asking a sales associate for some bronzer for me. He didn’t know the particulars about makeup. He just picked this one because he liked the case cover. Well, I’m glad he did! I have tried several bronzers but this is my favorite and I will be purchasing this one from now on.

Review for: Bronzed more...
Love this bronzer. Love that it does not give too  much product on the brush so you have control over how little or how much color pay off you want from this product. It blends super easily and stays all day. I have not had any issues of this looking muddy, too orange, or patchy on me like some others have had issues with. I had originally bought this bronzer because of the packaging because I am a sucker for packaging. I was also hoping that the product was good as well, and once i tried it I fell in love with the product and had to buy backups so I never run out.

This is the PERFECT summer
Bronzer. I love the way this goes on the skin and it’s small enough that’s it’s easy to travel with. I have fair skin but I use this so much in the summer. (Too dark for me to use during the winter). I’ve almost hit pan on this that’s how much I like it. It was my holy grail last summer and I’m excited to use it again this summer.

Would this be good as a contour for very pale skin ? Or maybe another shade? I just don't want to look orange, roughly how much is this and is it sold at ulta ?

Hi there! I had a quick question about this bronzer. How is the blendability of this product? Does it go on light or a little heavier than other bronzers? Thanks!
