Love this bronzer! Perfect for fair skinned girls. Has a slight shimmer to it but nothing that makes it unwearable. Cost me $2 off the website you get an ok amount and it comes with one of those useless small brushes. Only complaint about packaging is it's hard to open. I also don't find it lasts the longest so maybe not your go to bronzer when you've got a full day ahead of you.
Definitely will buy again.
Oh little $1 elf bronzer, I wanted to love you! I really did. But even though you went on easily and very evenly with a quite nice light tan color, it's not going to work out between us. And it's not me...it's you. Here's why:
1. You have too much shimmer. Like your four-toned bronzer friend in the black case, there is just way too much sparkle to you. I love shimmer and I encourage you to shine on, friend. Just not all over my face. You make me look like a robot stripper.
2. Your pressed powder isn't so pressed. You crumbled so much the second my brush touched you! You just get too wasted and then make a mess.
3. You fade too fast. I need a bronzer to stand by me through thick and thin, or at least an eight hour workday. You just weren't there for me when I needed you to be. A meager two hours of time together just isn't going to cut it.
I'm sorry I had to break it off this way. I'm sure you'll find someone you make very happy, but you're just not the one for me.
Overall, it is a decent bronzer. You're getting your money's worth when buying it. Before purchasing, I thought it didn't have any shimmer to it, and was pretty disappointed when I got home and took it out of the packaging only to find out that there was sparkle to it, which is why I would have to say I would not purchase this again. I do use it daily, so I do like the bronzer, the only downside is the shimmer if you're looking to contour with the product.
I really like this product... as an eye shadow! Its amazing over Too Faced' shadow insurance and it gives a nice pop to my eyes! I personally don't like super shimmery bronzers but I thought I would try it out for only a dollar. I don't really like it as a bronzer but I love it as an eye shadow!
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.
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.
