i got this for a while, i think i got it in a set with something else together from sephora... but it is still nearly 99% full, except the 1% that i might just have played on my hands.

In the jar, it just look brown to me, and on my hands, it pretty much look brown to me still LOL so I really don't know if this color does even work on my face??! I guess this is make for the darker skin girls, definitely not some lighter one like me (nc30)

i will probably toss mine away since it been just sitting there...

On my NW20-25, this comes out looking way too orange. The packaging is cute, and I like the twisting sifter to keep the product from spilling everywhere, but that isn't redeeming enough. It's too shimmery for me, as well, and I end up looking like a frosty Oompa-Loompa...not a great look! One plus is that it is very pigmented, and a little goes a long way - I use only the teeniest amount and still find that it's too much. I don't think this is carried anymore, in any event (it was part of the Indian Summer line, if I'm not mistaken?) but I've seen it in sales bins and online a fair bit recently. I wouldn't recommend it for ladies with my tone, but maybe you can make it work for you?! In my humble opinion, this is a sub-par bronzer.

I'm NW45 and I'm kinda on the fence about this one. It has some pros and cons, just like any product.

Pros:
The packaging is cute.
Goes on lightly, so you can build it up.
I can twist the sifter to open and close it, so it doesn't spill all over my makeup bag.
Gives a nice glow

Cons:
WAY over priced. $34 is just crazy for the quality.
Can get a little too shimmery if you're not careful.

I absolutely loved this bronzer...until I noticed that it made my face orange. It could be in combination that I was using the wrong shade of powder and foundation (not my fault...the SA had me fooled), but other than that, great product. It looks very natural (when I was using it with my old foundation) and wears all day.

The mineral powder is the same packaging as the hydrating finishing powder. It lasts all day and is very blendable. The color is not a horrifying orange; it's very wearable. I'm a pale person, so I use a light hand on this, but the very fact I *can* wear it shows how universal this is. The only downside is that the powder does cost a lot (about $32) and I'm not struck by it as a unique, HG-type item.

This review is for the loose Mineral Bronzing Powder that was released with the Summer 2009 Indian Summer collection.


This is a loose powder bronzer in packaging very similar to the stila hydrating finishing powder. It has a cute bronzey lid with the same sun artwork as the pressed powder bronzers. There is also a mirror inside the lid. It has a sifter inside that can be turned to open or close it, so you can store this sideways or pack it for vacation without having all of the bronzer come out. I thought that was a particularly nice feature of the packaging.


I wear 30watts in stila foundation (about 20NW/NC in MAC) and I find this to be a very natural bronzer shade. It isn't orange, but it isn't flat brown either. It is a nice sunkissed brown shade. There is 24K gold in the bronzer, but it is minimal and not overly shimmery. It seems like it's going to last quite a long time too. I've used it a dozen times or so and it only seems to take the tiniest bit of powder to get a nice healthy glow. I prefer this now to the pressed powder bronzers in the stila line because I can use less bronzer and get a much more natural look.
