I love this product! But I don't know it is called a bronzer when it is clearly a blush. But I really love it. It's the perfect amount of shimmer and the perfect pop of pink! It looks amazing on my fair skin. This is my favorite blush that I have (and I have a LOT). I find myself reaching it for it almost daily!
I have the BB Antigua and the Maui for a pop of color on the cheeks over bronzer. Love them both!
So I became a little obsessed with getting either this or Antigua, and eventually went to the mall to check them out. I decided to focus on Maui as a springy coral-pink pick-me-up kind of blush, and forget about Antigua although it probably has its merits too. Put off by the price, I hunted through all of Sephora for a dupe, and to my surprise did not find one. Everything that was the cheerful corally pink I was looking for was either matte or way too shimmery. Maui has just enough shimmer. So I reluctantly shelled out the money and got Maui.
It is nice, a high-quality product in a big compact, lovely high-pigment color, yadda yadda. But, it IS just blush. So for me (neither flush with money nor a big blush person) it was probably a bit wasteful. I'm not sure I get the hype over this, because it's not a bronzer in any way (so why is it labeled as such?), and if you looked hard enough you probably could find a dupe for less. But it's pretty and nice quality, so sure, 4 lippies.
I used this as a blush and I absolutely love it! It gives you the perfect flush. I don't think it's a bronzer but it definitely illuminated my skin and made me feel beautiful. I definitely want to try Aruba and Antigua.
It's a beautiful pink-coral color, give the skin this natural tan look and using the normal bronzing powder and then applying this illuminating bronzes gives you the most natural, glowing beautiful tan in your skin, I absolutely love this product, I also used sometimes as a blush and works perfect very natural.
i am on the fence about this product. i dont absolutely NOT like it but i am not sure it would be a great addition. online it looks more like a dusty mauve mac blushbaby type of shade but in real life, its really bright pink/coral! its definitely a much better version of orgasm. i cannot wear orgasm, its just all kinds of glitter craziness and the color didnt flatter my NC42 skin. this is really pretty on but i find that its just a tad bit too RED. it almost can look like i have rosacea on my cheeks! i use this as a blush, i cant imagine sweeping this all over my face. it was very dusty on first application but thats ok, i just blew it away. theres a ton of product for the price so that was a plus. the compact is absolutely beautiful classic bobbi brown. i usually lean more towards peachy colors, like nars gina, illamasqua lover, etc. this is the pinkest blush i own by far. i will try to make it work but using it as less of a blush and more like a highlight and with a lighter hand. it has a nice golden sheen, no obvious glitter. we shall see :)
I tried this on when I was at Nordstrom and I didn't get it then because I thought it was too shimmery. But after reading the reviews here, I decided to try it again. The first time I tried it on, I had no makeup on but the second time, I had my usual makeup and wow, what a difference. This definitely gives a beautiful healthy glow without that obvious shimmer. I use this together with BB Bronzer in Medium or Dark with the Maui as a blush for that hint of colour and the result is a wonderful 'flushed' look. Very expensive but this will last me a long time.
Gorgeous. Definitely more of a blusher than a bronzer because the colour is a pinky-coral. It has a fine, blendable texture and although it's shimmery, this isn't over the top - I have very oily skin so avoid too much extra shine. In that respect, it is infinitely superior to Orgasm, which other reviewers have compared it to. For me, Orgasm is unnaturally glittery; Maui just has glowy shimmer. Maui is also a better look than Orgasm on my skin tone - which is pale but olive toned. Stunning.
UPDATE: OK, I can honestly say, I haven't reached for this in months. I don't know why, I think I love the look of Clarins bronzer and Nars blush (Amour, Taj Mahal) better on my skin then this. I also think the finish of those are better then this...sorry.....
How can this look so amazing on anyone? It really looks amazing on my skin, whether it's lighter before summer or if it has sun on it. It's super blending and does have a fair amount of sheen but is beautiful.
I use more as a blush then a bronzer.
Totally worth the buy, I got it at Murale. You get Shoppers Optimum Points with it.
I use this across my face as if it was a natural tan and it looks amazing. Love the texture and color on my skin, not too sparkly, but really makes the skin look healthy and glowy.
