Hello, my fabulous ladies 🙂
I’m not a makeup aficionado but every now and then, I love playing up with lipsticks, eyeliners, blushes, and compacts.
As you know, I have a dusky skin which is damn oily. I get clogged pores whenever I wear heavy makeup so I save it for special occasions only.
Most of the time I do not find a matching concealer or a bronzer for my skin shade and that sucks, to be honest… Either they are strikingly pricey or the preferred shade isn’t available.
Especially where I live, I rarely find a highlighting or contouring kit which satiates the need for dusky skin tones. And for that reason, I had almost given up on contouring until I found this – SUGAR Contour De Force Mini Bronzer in Taupe Topper which is a mini bonzer.
I’m going to review it today here so stay glued to this post. 😉

SUGAR Contour De Force Mini Bronzer in Taupe Topper | Review
It comes in 2 shades: 02 Woody Wonder (warm-toned brown) and 01 Taupe Topper (cool-toned brown-gray). These shades are also available in a face palette kit which contains bronzer, blush, and highlighter which retails for 799/- rupees but you can purchase an individual mini too.
The shade I’ve got is 01 Taupe Topper which suits my dusky skin. Since I was ordering it online, I looked for online swatches and settled with this particular shade after researching well.
It comes thick, purple magnet cardboard box packaging with a girl printed on it. SUGAR always slay with its graphics. Since it is a mini bronzer, it is small in size and it has no smell to it.
Taupe Topper is cool-toned brown-gray shade which will suit medium to dusky skin tones. Its texture is smooth and soft.
It is well-pigmented and takes 1-2 swipes to show up on my face and enhances my face structure beautifully.
I pick up the pigments of this bronzer with a light hand as the powder is finely milled. It blends effortlessly onto the skin and gives me a chiseled look.
Skin tones darker than MAC NC45 might have to use a lot of swipes in order to show up on their skin. I use this bronzer for contouring my forehead, jaw, and nose. I top it up above my Maybelline Fit Me Matte Poreless Foundation in shade Golden Caramel and it gives me a natural look.
- Contains no fragrance
- Free from paraben, mineral oil, nano-ingredients, and D-5
- Attractive packaging
- Finely milled texture
- Blends effortlessly
- Gives a natural look
- Reasonably priced
- Not really a con but skin tones darker than NC45 may have a hard time making this bronzer show up on their skin tones
SUGAR Contour De Force Mini Bronzer
This bronzer is just amazing because it restored my faith in contouring! It has a smooth texture and the finely milled powder glides effortlessly on my skin. Wearing it doesn’t make my face cakey nor does it clog pores. It gives a natural look and doesn’t look over the top with makeup. It will suit a majority of skin tones except for very dark skin tones. If you prefer a moderately chiseled look which accentuates facial features naturally, I recommend this bronzer.
