I'm actually surprised by this! I'm naturally extremely pale (think sheet of paper, veins are visible etc) so I love using bronzer to warm up my tone, make me look like less of a corpse, and give my face dimension. Since I've learned how to use bronzer to enhance my skin tone and facial features, I've dipped my feet into the highest of the high end brands. I own bronzers from Chanel, Dior, YSL, Geurlain, Laura Mercier, Nars, Bobbi Brown, Mac, etc, so when I heard everyone going on about this bronzer, I paid no attention to it. I've never been enthralled with Sephora's own brand, so I figured this would just be another dud in a less than exciting line. Boy, was I wrong! Not only is this amazingly flattering for pale skin, it's a pretty complex product in itself. Looking at it straight on, a matte ashy-tone is visible, but somehow it still remains slightly warm enough to make me look alive. It's crazy hard to describe, because it is a warm bronzer, but there's definitely some gray in there to prevent it from being orange. I could definitely see this being a summer staple, not only do I love using it all over my face and then defining my eye crease for a really simple look, it comes in a sturdy compact (that was a jab at you, Hoola) with a nice mirror, and it's only $16 so it won't be painful to replace if it breaks while traveling! This is an awesome aspect of Sephora's own line, and coming from a bronzer snob like me, that means something!
I was previously using hoolah and while I love that bronzer its not the best for travel. I heard good things about this through here and have it a try,whoa the pigmentation is wonderful! My first attempt was awful because I wasn't in good lighting which was my fault but when I applied it the second time around it was beautiful! Perfect bronze color not muddy not orange and most importantly no shimmers. Completely matte! I believe the price was around15$ and comes in a compact, perfection!
I have a ridiculous amount of excitement for this amazing bronzer--had just about given up after whacking on everything in Sephora when a helpful SA pulled out this little gem. Jumping for joy that it doesn't look muddy, oompa-loompa orange, dirty, blotchy or sallow on my light, NC 20-ish neutral/warm skin. For reference, I wear Nude in LM tinted moisturizer, Sand in BB, #5 in Armani LSF, and Nude 40 in Neutrogena Healthy Skin. This matte, light tan bronzer doubles as a subtle contour for me, goes on silky smooth with a big, soft brush [I'm using Louise Young's beautiful powder brush] and gives a perfect hint of healthy, believable colour. The packaging is Sephora's understated basic black round compact, not at all bulky or tacky. [Physicians Formula--cough, cough--I'm look'in at you!] The fact that it's so good and reasonably priced to boot makes it a phenomenal find for anyone like me who struggles to find a bronzer that's flattering. Love!
Absolutely love this bronzer. I decided to stop tanning my face because I was scared of pre-mature aging. I'm actually really fair and once my face paled down to my original shade, I had to change up all of my makeup which got to be really costly. I only like matte bronzers because shimmery ones make my face look oily, plus I wanted to use it to contour my face. The sephora associate recommended too faced chocolate soleil to me however, after walking around the store, I came across Los Cabos. It was a complete dupe for the too faced, but for so much less! I absolutely love it! It doesn't make my face look dirty or orange and its a great value! Definitely recommended!
This is my favourite bronzer of all time - I'm already on my second one. It's matte!! Yay! I absolutely hate bronzers with shimmer. It's a nice warm brown - no orange. Gives you a natural looking tan and doesn't curdle up and form mudpiles on your face like some bronzers do. I'm staying loyal to this bronzer! Although the Bourjois and Too Faced chocolate scented bronzers come in close second!
Sephora's website describes this color as a "matte universal tan." I would say that is an accurate description. This is a nice neutral tan-peach colored bronzer that looks great on my NC20-25 skin. This is probably like what I was hoping for Benefit Hoola to look like on my skin, but it just ended up looking muddy on me. If you have fair-light skin, I would suggest giving this powder a shot. It is a creamy soft powder, and applied really nicely with buildable coverage. At $15, this is something that you can try without breaking the bank (not to mention Sephora's nice return policy if it doesn't work for you!). I'm a big fan of this shade and really like the light bronzing effect it gives my skin.
