Holy grail bronzing powder. The most believable results you will ever find from a bronzing powder. Sadly it has been long discontinued from the Paula's Choice line. Such a shame, as it has the most luxurious, rich bronze pigments that applied to the skin like silk and would make even the palest complexion look sun-drenched to perfection, minus the UV damage.
I love Paula Begoun but did not like this bronzer it went on like dirt - gave it to my daughter and it did the same to her.
I am a GGG with medium skin, and I thinks it works GREAT as a contour powder. I use it everyday and it looks great. I wish it were more of a golden brown than a red brown, but it does the job of giving me cheekbones. I put on my foundation, then this bronzer under my cheekbones, then top it all off with powder and finish with blush. It sounds like a lot of makeup, but it really looks natural when the look is complete.
Definitely too dark for light skins. This is a red based brown powder with a lot of pigment that would only suit medium skintones. The formula is light and silky so I wish she would come up with better shades.
