I purchased this in the lightest shade St.Lucia because I am super pale in the Winter. I get really white and ghostly and this will warm my skin up just enough where I look healthy and not too bronzy. Reason being I don't think a super shimmer blush would be good for contouring something like the cheekbones. But for an allover wash of colour before I put on my blush my skin looks so much better. Especially with a plummy blush like NARS Sin it looks really well. I can also see this working on the eye but I like it for face and body. I'm an NW20,N1 F&B for reference.
For the price you can't beat it and because I don't use bronzer a lot in the winter this will last a long time. In the Summer this would be a nice highlight. It applies well and doesn't look patchy or streaky. Either way I like the sheerness of this shade when it's gently swept on the face, or in the 3 formation I find works well. For the price it was worth it I own HE and DS bronzers and this one works for me. If your on the fair side give it a shot because it won't turn you orange or muddy. Plus for the price you can't beat it. Recommended!
I bought this in St. Lucia and find it too light to be used as a bronzer. By the time I build it up enough my face looks dirty. However, I found another use for it - as a eyeshadow contour shade! It has a satin finish, goes with every lid color that I've tried it with, and gives subtle definition to the crease. I reach for it often!
I own the shade Maui. I use it to add some colour to my face and I like it because it isn't orangey and doesn't look unnatural. It isn't super pigmented but this is good because it means I can build it up instead of accidentally getting heavy handed. I apply it with my sigma large contour brush and I really enjoy this added step to my make up routine. Is as good as an expensive bronzer imo. And I haven't noticed that it is super shimmery or anything, though I wouldn't mind that.
I got this in the color Maui. It is seriously like spreading bronze colored foil on your face. It's not glittery it's straight up metallic. I can't use it. It looks so odd. I thought I applied it too heavily so I tried again several times with different brushes but that didn't help. It was super cheap so I didn't lose out on too much money. I can't recommend. I don't mind some shimmer but this is over the top.
Ok... The thing you have to keep in mind when buying this product is that you MUST like dewey finishes on your face. I prefer matte bronzers .. So I don't use a lot these bronzers, but is you're into dewey looks , try it ! You'll love it. Great price.
Confused! What is the difference between a bronzer and a self tanning spray tan in a can? Thanks everybody
i got it in los cabos, but wrong color for me! its too dark and warm for my skin tone. its very pigmented as well, so can be used as an eyeshadow or in the crease.
I bought this bronzer in Maui and Los cabos (the 2 darker shades with los cabos being the darkest) I didnt get these for contouring, but just for adding some color to my face after i apply my tinted moisturizer and powder because if i don't my face can look to generic. Los Cabos is absolutely perfect for that all over bronze look and i am a caramel mocha skin complection. Maui is also great for an all over bronzer but its more on the golden side where los cabos is a bit more brown. Overall i love these and will definately repurchase. They would look great in the summer :)
I bought this in st-Lucia a few months ago and to be honest I don't use this as often as I would have hoped.
The color pigmentation is somewhat lacking. When I swipe my finger over it nothing really shows up. And when I try to apply this on my face it requires a lot of layering. However, when it does finally show up on my skin I love how I look. I find this gives my skin a great glow, perfect for summer time.
I also really like the packaging. A lot of people said that it felt flimsy and that it would break but to me it feels sturdy. It's also travel friendly which is a big bonus for me. I would repurchase this again because I love the eventual look this gives me but I hate that I have to constantly layer it on before I see any results, and I am a very pale person.
For 3$ I think this is a good deal
I bought this in St. Lucia because I saw so many reviews on how it can be used as a highlighter. Ever since E.L.F. added more chunky glitter to their Essential Bronzers, I was looking for a very subtle highlighter without all the garish glitters. St.Lucia is a great light gold highlighter without the extreme shimmer. I love it! It gives off a toasty pearl finish. Really nice for yellow undertones.
