This bronzer is excellent for porcelain and fair skin tones. It has no yellow tone and is marbled with pink to create a nice neutral brown tone. There is no sparkle so it is great for contouring. This is one of my favorite bronzers simply because it does not turn orange on my skin. The powder is light weight but high pigment due to it being a baked powder. I've been using it for some time and have had not issues with my skin. The price is reasonable and the packaging is simple.
I like this bronzer. It has a touch of color to it and so it does not tend to be as muddy looking or one dimensional as some bronzers can be. Also, it doesn't have much "glitter" in it and so those of us with a few wrinkles can wear it without too much concern of it settling in fine lines. Although I still swear by Laguna by Nars, this Laura Geller bronzer is a nice mix of a blush/bronzer. Great to carry around with you to touch up your face during the day.
This is now my HG bronzer. I was using Two Faced Chocolate Soleil until I stumbled upon the reviews for Bronze n Brighten. I bought it in a trial size in the regular shade. All I can say is WOW! What a difference! This bronzer gives such a realistic warmth to my skin. In the pan, it appears shimmery...but it is not visibly shimmery on my face. It is slightly darker than Chocolate Soleil but it blends out way better. Also, even though Bronze and Brighten is a baked powder, it does not look like a powder on my face. Chocolate Soleil is guilty of being powdery and caking up a bit throughout the day. I honestly cannot imagine there being a better bronzer on the market. I will be crushed if this is ever discontinued!
I have this in both "regular" and "fair." Fair is the best, most natural-looking bronzer I have ever used and I use it frequently now that I've found a brush that makes application mistake-proof (Real Techniques blush brush). For reference, I'm NC15-NW20. Fair has bits of pink that really elevate this bronzer over others. The finish is not shimmery, but not flat either. I like this very much and find it easy to use. The "regular" color is great as well, but for my complexion, "fair" is unbeatable.
This is the best bronzer I have ever used. I have it in fair, and it gives me a great glow that looks so natural! It's not glittery or way too shimmery like other bronzers can sometimes be. It does not make your skin look orange either; it's a great bronzer for fair skin.
I think this is my new favorite bronzer! I have the mini and the full size and I like them both, although they are slightly different. As I noticed in many reviews when I was researchign the product, the mini tends to have more brown in it and the regular size has more of an even mix of brown and pink. I don't mind this at all though- since i'm light tanned skin and get a bit darker in the summer, I'll use the mini then and save the regular (both in the regular shade) for the rest of the year when I'm lighter. The brown shade in this bronzer is my fave part about it- it seems to be a cooler brown that does not lean orange at all on my skin, so the color is very natural looking. This and the mix of the pink and highlight color lead to subtle warmth. It sorta reminds me of what I had hoped "warmth" from BE would have been (instead of the ugly mud color it turned out to be). Its a really subtle bronzer, really natural. I still like my bobbi brown matte bronzer for when i need a darker shade to contour, but if I had to choose between this and nars laguna (a comparable medium-shade shimmery bronzer), I'd go for LG BnB.
I am very fair with Rosacea. I use this in the fair over my makeup.
I doesn't really darken my skin per se', but just gives a great, yet subtle color to my face.
I really love this bronzer. The color pay off is excellent and although it appears shimmery it doesn't leave me looking like a disco ball like a lot of shimmery bronzers can do.
The only con for this product is how powdery it is, but I think that happens a lot with these baked style bronzers as my Physician's Formula is the same way.
I love this product! I tried it in a store and wasn't sure, I would love it, but once I wore it over Pur minerals foundation at work, EVERYONE said I looked younger and healthier. I am hooked!
I have used drugstore Bronzers in the past, just a gentle sweep here and there to brighten and add a summer glow.
This stuff is OK, but thank god it was a gift. It's way to shimmery for daily use ... unless you want to look like a fairy. Also, it's to dark for me (even when I repeatedly shook off the excess product). I know the "secret" with Laura Geller Bronzers is that the colors are supposed to work with any skin color, I'm more of a nude color, but it makes me look orange and its drying and cakes unlike anything product. It makes me look muddy, not sunkissed.
Obviously, a little goes a long way with this product, but it's very hard to blend evenly over my skin.
You can add a little bit of water and use it as an eye shadow if need be. But the color isn't much better, more of a golden washed out color, so not a plus there, either.
