So What if Summer’s Over: Covergirl Trumagic Sunkisser Review


A while back I reviewed the clear version of Covergirl TruMagic Skin Perfector. More recently, I received the bronze version in Sunkisser with the purchase of the Covergirl Bombshell Mascara. Basically a mini version of the Bronzer was attached to the Mascara – which convinced me to purchase. Marketing, I tell ya. Anyway, I thought I’d give my brief thoughts on this tinted version in case anyone’s interested.

Covergirl TruMagic SunKisser Review

Some of the claims on this are kind of out there, i.e. “skin magic” – I’m not sure what that means? On the other hand the Skin Perfector’s promise of an “instant touch of sun” is a bit more reasonable and I do think it adds some nice warmth to the skin. Based on the tone and opacity of this bronzer,  I would say it’s best suited for fair to light skin. This is a very sheer formula and on my skin  (which is light to medium) it does show up but is not very saturated (which can be a good or bad thing depending on your perspective).

Like the clear version, the Sunkisser can be used under, over, or instead of makeup. It is formulated to be oil-free, non-greasy, lightweight, blendable and for all skin types. I would not use this to contour with – the tone, which leans a bit red, is great for achieving a natural all over “I’ve just been in the sun look” – but this doesn’t look cute if used to carve out the face. In fact, I think it’s best suited for use all over the face, under foundation, to give you a more bronzed look – or to darken a foundation that is too light.  The bonus of this method is that it can act like a primer as well due to the silicone in it. The full size retails for $5.99+ USD.

  1. Hmmm I wonder how this would wear on my skin.

      It’s not a ton of color, but does add a little something on fairer skin types. If you have really pink/red undertones it might come across a tad too orange though.

  2. It sounds so interesting! I don’t imagine myself actually wearing it on my face for some reason, but it sounds so cool! Have a good weekend! 🙂 xx

      Thanks, Gyudy! It’s a decent product for what it is but probably not my favorite. I like the Stila Bronzing Balm much better – but the Stila is more for combo skin types.
