I bought this not too long ago, and it is alright. It has a lot of glitter, so I will only use it in the summertime. It would look ridiculous in the winter. You can't use very much, it is a little orange. But I like using powder for my face, that is a little lighter than my face color. That way, I can sweep a little bronzer over my face, to give it a little darker, and natural-glow look to my face. So for now I will hold off on using it, because it will be winter soon. But next summer, I may use it some. It doesn't really look orange unless you put a lot of it on, and it really doesn't take very much. Recommended for summertime.
This is super glittery. DO NOT put it all over your face or risk looking like an oompa loompa. Packaging is cheap, I had to put it back together. Would not buy again.
I have this in the lighter shade. I use it for contouring, and it works just fine for this purpose. But I can't use it as an overall bronzer or as a blush, because it would look like dirt on me (I'm a NW20).
i do agree with those saying that this is too light to be a bronzer it truly is, but it is called "sunlight" what did you expect tbh? i am a medium to olive skin tone and this actually matches my skin colour so ofc it is more like a foundation powder! it has like no shimmer in it except for a tiny amount. i like using this as a setting powder or using it to lighten a darker bronzer and it is fab for that:)
I know people say this is a really crap bronzer because its not pigmented, but i actaully dont mind it. Its sheer it true, but quite buidlable to an extent. I like it because some bronzers are too shimmery or they just make me look to dark.This gives me a very subtle glow and I like that. I actually use it to set my tinted moisturizer or over my mineral powder. I do have to swirl my brush in it quite a bit to get a decent amount on my brush but hey, it was $5, cant complain. There is very very small amount of shimmer, but it does nto show up on the skin which is a bonus because i cant stand sparkly bronzers.The product is very compacted hard and i think this is what is the problem with the bronzer, its not a soft product so that why you really need to swirl your brush into it to make a difference. The pakaging like most maybelline products is crapola. A flimsy plastic lid and crappy brush which i threw out. I really think Maybelline really needs to start improving their packaging line. Anyway this bronzer isnt for everyone and usualy i would say buy it, but for this I will say, save your dollars and look at getting another bronzer with more pigmentation.
My fair-skinned friend had given this to me and it doesn't show up on me at all. I had planned to use this as a highlighter but it's little glitters in the powder that don't even show up. Not that I like glitters but I tried to pack this on and even the glitters don't show. I dug my finger around in it to swatch it and nothing. Just like a foundation powder except that one or two very small sparkles may show so that ruins that idea.. I don't get how people say this is orangey.. Asked my friend later and she said this doesn't even show on her.
This is far too light to be a bronzer ... but I guess it could work as a highlighter in some cases. But even using it as a highlighter, I find that it does NOT show up on my skin at all. And I'm a pretty fair skinned too (NC20-25ish) From the packaging, it looks like it could've been a nice light color I could maybe use to contour with but nope!
wouldn't call this a bronzer but as a highlighter works well :)
it gives off a nice glow but it most def dosent have overpowering shimmer/glitter. it really dosent! it has minimal shimmer you can hardly notice. nice for brushing over eyes &nose. perfect for summer! this is a good find overall.
I recently just finished this bronzer. It's very nice for people with light to medium skin tones. Being NC25, I used it very lightly even though pigmentation is not the greatest, and it gives me a nice sun-kissed glow. :) There is some shimmer, but it's not over-powering to the point where it comes off looking fake. Has never made me look orange, but I guess if too much is used, it can. A good find at a good price.
