Really love this bronzer. It is perfect for contouring and isn't orangey. It is completely matte - no shimmer.
A great dupe for this is Rimmel Natural Bronzer in 021 - Sun Light. I'm not sure about the staying power, but the colour is almost spot on and it too is completely matte.
possibly my most favorite bronzer yet. It's mat so i can use it to contour my face. Good pigmentation too. Yes i will buy again!
I use this bronzer for contouring my face. i find it good but i think they are pretty good bronzers on the market for less money.
it's good that it is "matte". i wil not buy again.
I use a brush to apply. The sponge is useless.
The bronzer gives a beautiful, matte--but not dull--finish. However, with repeated use, it caused breakouts on my extremely reactive skin. My skin is reactive to many products, including Chanel, Nars, and LM, and MAC blushes. Those looking for matte blushes may have sensitive skin to begin with. My skin is not acne-prone. I don't know what oil-absorbing ingredients MUFE has added, but this powder also makes my face feel heavy and oily after a few hours' wear--in the dead of winter. I wish they'd kept this nice and simple. I don't believe in oil-free anything.
Mat Bronze is my favorite product to use as a blush/contour. I don't bronze my entire face. Formula has not caused breakouts or irritation after four months' use. I feared the added Vitamin E would cause sensitivities, but it did not. The color swatches online are deceiving though. Picking the right color depended on my skin's undertones rather than my coloring. The color Earth #6, worked best to match my medium-light, olive skin with golden undertones. The rest were too pink, flat, or muddy. The product itself is sheer but with good pigment. I only use one light swipe for my desired effect. I did not want to spend more than $30 USD for a matte blush/bronzer, so I'm glad I found this. The quality is better than more expensive matte bronzers.
Produces such a wonderful, realistic bronzed effect, but I found with continued use that it really dried my skin out and also gave me breakouts. It's very pigmented, smooth, long-lasting, and blendable, but it can cause an allergic reaction.
I would have returned it, but when I dropped it on the hard floor, the product easily broke into a million pieces. It is one of the best looking bronzers out there, but I wouldn't recommend it to the more sensitive skin types.
When I was first given this as a gift in 0, I was doubtful that it would work for me. I am very pale (NC15), but this was just really light! I had been trying tons of bronzers,: Returning, exchanging, tossing... everything made me look dirty, orange or was too dark. It's true that I wasn't looking hard enough and was sticking to a couple of brands that I am familiar with, but I'm not saying I am gonna stop exploring. It's just that I've found something that works very well. :) It's not very dark and that's what I need. I want a bronzer to just contour my complexion and give me some warmth; not to make me tan. I dusted this right under my cheek bones (hollow part of cheeks found when making fishie lips), temples, and down around the jaw, but not too far. I did it on one side to see if I could tell a difference. As I was applying I thought, "Well, it's there but it doesn't seem obvious..." Stepping back and looking in the mirror full frontal, I was pleased! It really just gave a natural, subtle contour to my complexion! I dusted just a bit more where I wanted more and did the other side of my face and walked out of the bathroom a happy gal! If I warm up any more, I will need to find a new bronzer (and I am with summer in SoCal, even using reliable, stable ss gives me a tint), but for now this is working great! Oh, that's why -1 lippie; I know that when I warm up, I *will* have to look around again. I might try another MUFE one, but all the others look pretty dark... But I am so happy with this and recommend it to mega-pale ladies that want some definition! <3 Win again, MUFE! continued >>
Love this bronzing powder! Looks really natural! I use shade O and brush it all over my face to look a bit more tan.
Be careful not to keep it near any credit cards though.. the compact has magnets.
I'm a PPP like doORdye and I agree with her that this bronzer in shade 0 is great for fair faces. I'd say it's a complexion warmer versus bronzer- which for my very fair skin is the best look. It's a lovely light peachy-gold tone. I'm always about matte versus shimmer with bronzers and blush and this one is truly matte. I can use this liberally on my forehead, cheeks and browbone - I also hit the tip of my nose and my neck with a little. I've used it for 2 months now with no irritation to my rosacea skin and no breakouts. If it had just a touch more pigment I'd give it 5 lippies but as is - It's still a keeper.
