Ugh! I am searching for a powder bronzer but every one I look at is either way too dark, muddy, or orangey. I want one that is more on the golden side but not too light. I know there are several threads about bronzers which I have looked through. Unfortunately many of the brands posted are not sold where I live which means I would have to order from sephora.com. I just hate buying makeup without seeing it in person.

I wish Caboodles makeup was still available. I use to buy their Tahiti bronzer which was cheap and wonderful. I can't even find this on ebay. Grrr.

I'm trying to find a bronzer that is matte or with very subtle shimmer. I may just have to bite the bullet and buy one from sephora.com. I'm considering the Sugar tropic tan duo (the one with the blush) or Stila Sun.

Why does bronzer shopping have to be such a hassle, lol.
