I really like this bronzer it is a little bit shimmery but gives a nice bronze color and doesn't look orange. I would definitely repurchase it again.
I first bought this product after watching several YouTube reviews on it. I used it for about a month. However, I noticed that I was frequently breaking out on the sides of my cheeks where I contour. It took me a while to narrow down the products that were breaking me out, but I finally figured out that this product was it. I still use it from time to time, but it's not something that I can use on a day-by-day basis. Also, I am a person that absolutely loves shimmer and glitter. So, if you are the same then this bronzer is for you because it had just the most beautiful hint of shimmer in it. On the other hand, I do not recommend this product for people that are sensitive to shimmer or glitter as it will cause breakouts.
I am an NC30 for color refrence.
Hard Candy is one of my favorite brands of make up. I've worked at Sephora before and have tried every high end product available, especially bronzers. This drugstore bronzer definitely comes close to the higher end ones. I prefer a matte bronzer because my blush/highlight already gives me a shimmery "glow", but when i pair this with Hard Candy's "Skinny Dipping" blush and Wet N Wild's "Reserve Your Cabana" Bronzer (I use it as a highlighter) it is absolutely gorgeous! This isn't my favorite bronzer but I really do like it because it looks great in photographs and definitely gives me a healthy glow, and isn't too overpowering on my already tan skin. I like the versatilty of this product because I got away using it when I was an NC15, which is bascially as pale as you can get. I love the packaging, and this definitely will look amazing and not orange on most skin tones. It's also lasted me AGES, I've had mine for over a year.
I am in love with this bronzer! This past summer this stuff was a staple in my beauty routine. I've already bought it twice because I used it so much. The packaging is cute and sturdy, and the bronzer is really high quality! This stuff is so great for the price, I mean i bought mine at walmart! It doesn't look orange or fake at all. I am really pale usually and this made me look like I actually had some color on my face, but really natural! I use it all over my face, even though it's just meant to be a bronzer. I don't cake it on, but just sweep it evenly over my face. It makes my face really glow if I'm going for a bronzed look. It does have some shimmer but it just looks really natural. I love this stuff!!
I like this bronzer. I'm not a bronzer connoisseur or anything, but this stuff is a nice color and it stays on well. It's got a tiny bit of shimmer going on, but nothing crazy.
Like this bronzer but this is shimmery so it is almost like a darker highlighter. I wouldn't recommend using a lot of this product and putting it all over the face because the of the shimmer. However, if used sparingly (on cheeks and cheekbones) it is quite beautiful.
my best friend and i go tanning often, but our faces and chests never seem to be as dark as the rest of our bodies. we use this and put it lightly all over our faces and chests and i like the color it gives. it makes me more even and it's not too orange seeing as my skin is already lightly tanned. i haven't used it on my skin without a tan, though. i don't like the shimmer at all. it gets all over me somehow. but overall, i enjoy this product.
I picked this product up at my local Wal-Mart! I have been using it for about 2 years now. I will normally wear it everyday even in the winter! This product lasts forever, I just bought my second one only because I dropped my other one and the cover broke, but the bronzer is fine!
Adds such a nice glow without being to much! Has a nice shimmer to it! Its so cheap, for such a good bronzer, whats not to love!!
Great bronzer. I've owned Laguna and I don't really think it's similar. Actually I like this better..it gives a better "glow"..I hate shimmer but I love that iridescent look some products give - and thats what this bronzer does - gives real glow and subtle bronze - no actual shimmer whatsoever on the face. Is it a HG? - I'm not sure, I like trying new bronzers but I have a feeling I'll always repurchase this in my rotation as well.
Tip for really pale girls - STOP buying the lightest bronzer in a collection just because your pale..Almost every pale bronzer is very peachy which doesn't look bronze on anyone, and VERY VERY VERY unnatural - Instead look at the whole collection and pick the least orangy one - even if its the darkest one and buy yourself a good skunk brush instead. You'll thank me - I'm so tired of seeing pale girls complain about how orangy all bronzers are, its because your not buying the right color in the collection.
I love the hard candy bronzers!
They usually last quiet a few hours once applied and give good color, natural color (if blended correctly) and the very slight shimmer looks so nice!
I actually apply this on the apples of my cheeks instead of blush and it looks wonderful, it really brightens up the face.
The packaging is not that durable, I just had mine in my purse, zipped up in a makeup bag and the top broke and ended up getting bronzer all over my purse. BUT the product was so good I still bought another one!
The first color I had was heatwave which was wonderful too , but they were sold out.
This color is really light on skin tones other than fair.
It is more so a highlighter , but still adds little tint.
Overall I give it a 5, it is cheap, does what it says, and is a good product.
