This is my absolute favourite bronzer of all time!! I used to use NARS Laguna but I find that this one is soo much better! I love the color of it and I use the color 02 Fake Tan. It contains an orangey color with shimmer, but when you put it on your face (I use that side to warm up my face), it doesn't show up that much. I love it soo much and I won't need to buy NARS again.
HATE THIS PRODUCT. First of all the fragrance that comes along with this bronzer is just unbearable. It smells like old people and very cheap cologne. I have very sensitive skin so using this made me breakout! Also the color of the bronzer wasn't as pigmented as I hoped for. I had to return this and get my money back. I'm not wasting 10.99 on this crap!!!!
I love how big the packaging is. I mostly use the lighter side because I feel like the other side is too dark for my skin tone. There are little brownish reddish speckles or sparkles, so if you do not want the shimmer this is not the one. It was about $8.97 at Walmart which to me is a little more than I wanted to pay though it is larger than other bronzers.
I can't believe the last review for this was from last year. This massive bronzer is a highly underrated drugstore gem. The matte, darker left side of this duo makes for the best COOL-toned bronzer I've yet to find at the drugstore. It's such a nice non-orangey shade that it works nicely as a contour as well.
I have to say I don't personally think the first photo up top accurately represents the colors, so I uploaded a slightly more true-to-color (IMO) manufacturer's photo.
The lighter, shimmery side is about on-par with other bronzers, with a warmer hue. It's not bad, but to be honest I pretty much ignore that side.
The only con I can think of is the fragrance. I think they were going for rose but it comes across a bit chemically. I don't notice it at all once it's on the skin, though.
If you have trouble wearing bronzers because you find them too orange, I highly suggest you try this one.
I love this bronzer so much! I was in the durgstore one day and I saw it there. I was in need of a new bronzer, and it had a decent amount of product so I bought it. The first time I used it, I was so impressed. For a drugstore bronzer, it was very pigmented and did an amazing job of contouring and making it look like my skin was glowing. There is shimmer/glitter in it so you have to apply it carefully or you will look like a glitter machine exploded on you. But when I apply it cautiously it gives a gorgeous, natural finish on the skin. Best drugstore bronzer! I would definitely repurchase this bronzer!
First of all, let me point out that this bronzer is expensive for drugstore-level. At Sephora, this would be considered cheap but at CVS I consider it expensive. Even though it is XL, it is NOT worth the $10.99. I was very excited to buy this because the "All Over Glow" part made me think of a pretty radiance. Oh, I was wrong! This product gives you a complete orange, fake spray tan complexion. Even if you use the littlest amount! I looked worse than Snooki and Jwoww combined! Definitely disappointed in this product. I'm going to give the e.l.f bronzer a shot!
I was in the makeup aisle at CVS when this bronzer grabbed my attention, especially cause of the size of it. It also seemed to have the perfect combo for a bronzer, a neutral countour tone and a more orangey tone to warm up your face. I bought it and i have to say i am pleased with it. It has good pigmentation, the staying power is ok, not amazingly lasting but it is fair enough. The darker side is matte while the lighter one is warmer and with a little shimmer, not much though. You get a pretty good amount for the price, which will last you a very long time. The only downside of it would have to be that it is scented! I prefer makeup and skin care products that are fragrance free. The scent of this product is a little strong, sweet and a bit chemical-ish, kinda like nail polish remover! Obviously not that strong or bad, but reminds me of it a little bit. That is why i took off 1 lippie. The good news is that the scent fades after a little while, so it doesn't stay for hours on your face or anything like that. If you don't mind the scent and you keep in mind it will fade, then i highly recommend this bronzer! I would repurchase again.
This review is for the shade, "Fake Tan". I'm very new to bronzers but I'm definitely loving this one! The size is amazing and the product gives me quite the glow! I use the darker side as a contour and brighten my cheeks with the lighter side. Basically, I use this as a blush and not so much as an all over bronzing powder. I just love it no matter how it's used!
The Matte side of the Fake Tan bronzer is a good dupe for MAC pro sculpting powder in Emphasize. It works for light-med tone skin. Its a teeny more micro shimmer but compared to the MAC product its barely noticeable. I also love how it can be used as a contour and not turn orange. Great buy for the amount of product!
I purchesed this bronzer from my local Target store this weekend. I wanted to give bronzers a try again. The last and only bronzer I ever purchased was several years ago. Unfortunately, I did not like it because of the excessive shimmer. I couldn't go out in the day with this stuff on looking like a disco ball. A young WOC of the Youtube community recommended this bronzer and I decided to give it a try given the review and it's affordablility. It is divided into two sections in the pan with one side being the matte side and the other that provides more shimmer. I tried it out on Saturday and at first I really couldn't see much of a difference. I tried it again this morning and I have to say that the product has a subtle bronzing effect. I don't wear much makeup and when I do I want it to look as natural as possible. One negative point about the bronzer is the fragrance...very sweet. I am hoping this does not have an adverse effect on my sensitive skin. I will revisit this review in a few days to let you know if it is a keeper or not. Also, you get a large quantity for the price so I will keep my fingers crossed that this is my new favorite bronzer.
