BEST eye shadow + liner for spring/summer EVER! I use this gem all over my lid on top of NYX jumbo eye pencil in milk = pop of effortless gold goddess mysterious eyes! Throw in a darker taupe/mocha brown in crease for added depth & definition. Another phenomenal way I use this is with an eye pencil brush, smudge it over a pencil brown liner (by Milani) for an everyday smokey chic look.
Im into natural soft looks and usually I can only achieve this with the pearly champagne silvery-pink colors (Stila kitten/MAC shroom/ all that glitters/CG shimmering sands/Maybelline tattoo barely branded etc) never with a gold/brown nude. This compliments my yellow Asian NC25 skin SO much more then my prior obsessions and brings out my brown eyes.
As a bronzer its too light & as a highlight too dark, if that makes sense. The brown melts into my skin & Im left with a gold sheen that stands out on top of my cheekbones but doesn't have enough pigment to contour with. It would make a gorgeousss highlight on tanner complexions & perhaps an acceptable bronzer for paler gals. But for me its all about the eyes, so versatile & multi-functional for a buck. A major HIT from E.L.F! Please pick this up and try it even if you have their blush/bronzer duo or their larger golden/warmer/cooler quad bronzers. continued >>
I love this, its a good cheap bronzer. I use it for contouring/highlighting since I'm really pale and it stays. It breaks kind of easily and the packaging could be better but its only a dollar so can't complain.
I was looking for a good cheap bronzer. This is definitely it. Only a dollar at target and it doesn't compare to 50$ name brand products but I still love this product. I have it in sun kissed and it is my perfect shade. I am fair skinned with brown hair. And my face has never looked better, but if you rub the pan with your brush it gets dusty. I just pat my burst onto the color and get the perfect amount. But if you do not want to have shimmer then this is not for you.
Pros: cheap, pretty color, goes on easy, blend able, long lasting, no chunks of glitter
Cons: dusty, little amount
A good cheap bronzer. Only a dollar you cant really go wrong. I use it and I also use a bronzer from clinique and when theyre on you cant really tell a difference. The only problem is it breaks really easily, not the case but the powder. Still works just the same though. If nothing else good to throw in a gym bag for a quick refresher.
The color of this product on E.L.F.'s website is quite deceiving. On the E.L.F. website, the powder looks straight up peach in color. But, in person, it is more of a bronze shade with a slight peach undertone to it instead. Which does make the powder more warmer in tone than what it is portrayed on the E.L.F. website.
Nevertheless, I really do like wearing this powder to add a slight sunkissed glow to my face. I do apply this product sparingly to my face with each application. This product does give off to much of an added sheen if too much is applied. Also, the color can start to look a bit muddy if overapplied as well. To keep things natural, I only apply a little bit of it at a time to my face. And, this totally works out best for me.
Because this powder is so cheap (only costs $1), I like to buy multiples of it at a time. This way, I will never run out.
F.Y.I. This powder is not hard pressed. Fallout is to be expected within in the compact.
It's a good product. It's not my favorite but unlike most of the other bronzers i've used, it doesn't leave me orange. It has a very nice shade, but when I put it on, you can't really tell. It just doesn't show up a lot, but i would still recommend it because it looks natural and not orangy.
I love this bronzer! I inadvertently took a break from it a while ago when I went away to school and forgot to pack this bronzer. I found it again the other day and was blown away by the results! It's my favorite bronzer. Glowy but not glittery (I HATE glittery stuff, it makes my skin look terrible and my acne stand out), bronze and not muddy! It's so easy for bronzer to look muddy on my already tan skin, and this just really elevates my whole look. It's really easy to apply and it blends well. It's also pigmented, but not *too* pigmented- I can just grab it and use it on the go instead of worrying about applying with a light hand and blending like crazy. I have that problem with the Wet n Wild cheek products. They're great for color, but tend to be way too pigmented and it's hard for an amateur makeup user like myself to get it right. I'm also very wary of blushes that can break me out. I'm acne prone, so it kinda sucks, but this one doesn't break me out and feels light on my skin.
You also can't beat the price! ONE FREAKIN' DOLLAR! The packaging is a little meh- i remember my first compact of this broke very easily after a few months use, but that's not a huge issue for me. All in all, a great deal!
My oily skin makes this look like wet dirt on my face, i don't use it as an overall bronzer, i use it like blush and still, it looks like glittery dirt on my face as the oil absorbs it. on the upside, it works well as an eye shadow or lip glitter but as a bronzer...no
Ok so I dont use this as a bronzer because of my medium olive skin tone but instead as a blush! It is kind of a shimmery rosy bronze color and it works so beautifully with my skin tone. I DO however have to use a little bit of a light hand because I dont want to overdo it. It is a buildable color however and is really pretty. I also really enjoy using this color as an eyeshadow! I really like the look of shimmery and matte shadows in the same look because I feel like it prevents you from overdoing one or the other. So what I love doing a lot of the time is first priming my eyes, then applying my powder foundation on my lids up to my browbone, and finally just applying this color through my crease and blending and it looks GORGEOUS!! I would reccomend this product to anybody looking for a nice shimmery rosy bronze blush or eyeshadow! :)
I bought the shade darker than this one, but if you look at the bronzer itself it's clearly not meant for your whole face. I use this when I want to contour my cheeks when I'm going out at night. I would probably never use this during the day, but when I want to look more dramatic at night this is a great product, and for only one dollar, you really can't beat it as far as contouring goes.
