Hoarders: Bronzer Edition

The Hoarders series was created so that I'd post more often and give some insight as to how massive my make-up collection is. Like many other things, I've neglected this series in favor of other posts.
Fortunately, I've finally found the time (and inspiration) to update the series. Today, I'll be showcasing my bronzer stash which I find shockingly small. Take a look:

I own a total of 9 bronzers. Drugstore brands - E.L.F., JANE Cosmetics, N.Y.C. Cosmetics, Physicians Formula, Prestige and, Wet n Wild - dominate the stash with a count of 7. Thus, Benefit and Korres count as the last two. N.Y.C. Matte Bronzer in Sunny was the first bronzer I ever tried and to this day, it's the most used. It's a foolproof bronzer that doesn't break the bank. Who wouldn't appreciate a matte, never orange-y/muddy bronzer? The Physicians Formula Bronze Gems come in second but they aren't very pigmented but that also means I can never overdo the "healthy glow" look. It's a perfect face powder for the winter, when I'm much lighter too.
I don't appreciate shimmer in my bronzers so I hardly use the Wet n Wild, Prestige, or JANE bronzers. My preferences may change when I develop better application skills.

Overall, I don't think my bronzer stash is too out of control. What do you think?

I don't think your out of control, hey you got to find what works the best right? I don't use any bronzer cause I'm already tan enough as it is.

You have some really nice bronzers! :) You have a good mix of both shimmer and matte :)

I definitely found what works for me but the hard part is finding a use for the bronzers that don't work for me.

Rainy Days & Lattes,
I thought I had an uneven amount of shimmery bronzers but you're right, I have an equal mix!

Thanks, and I'll take close up pictures and swatches of the Prestige bronzer soon. It's actually the prettiest bronzer I have, it reminds me of MAC MSF's except the gold veining is just an overspray.

I'll swatch them as soon as I can :)

I think it's a lovely stash of bronzers, but of course... my stash is a little out of hand, so you should probably take that with a grain of salt :P Would love to see swatches!
