This is a great bronzer! It's lightweight on the skin and blends beautifully. The color is warm and natural without an excess of shimme or glitter. Skin has a lovely glow after using. The packaging is great, as with the rest of the mineral line. The holes in the container top allow easy and non-messy usage. I wear this alone over the mineral primer or over the mineral foundation. Either way, it does not settle into lines or imperfections. I use a skunk brush to apply. My coloring is fair-medium. I wear Rich Vanilla LM Mineral Foundation or Becca "Nude".
At first I thought this would be way too shimmery for the face. When applied this just gives a soft glow but I don't see shimmer on my face. The color is nice as well, it does not make me look orangey and I think this would work well on PPP's. This lasts all day and it only takes a tiny amount so this container will last forever!
I can not say enough good things about this bronzer!! I use the LM mineral foundation in Tendre Rose, and this compliments it wonderfully. I was previously using BE Faux Tan as an all-over bronzer, but this is SO much better! I was afraid to purchase it initially, because I thought it would be too shimmery to use all over, but it's wonderful! I have a nice, healthy glow with no obvious shimmer. Definitely my HG and would repurchase over and over!
Best bronzer so far! The color and shimmer are just right. This makes me look so healthy. I think the price is not bad because it comes in a big jar. It'd last about 6+ months. I've been using it for 2 weeks now (everyday), and it hasn't broke me out. The foundation is also good. Together, they look real good on the photos.
This may end up as my HG. I'm fair (MAC NC 20, LM Nude, BE 1.5) with pink undertones and have been searching for a warmer toned bronzer that still looks natural on me. The bronzers for fair skin tend to be too red/pink & end up looking more like blush on me than a 'tan' - the warmer ones end up looking orange or dirty. As it looks in the jar, I thought this might end up in the orange category but it's great.
It is shimmery & I agree that when applied as e/s the shimmer can be noticable, however, I have no issues with this looking shimmery or shiny when applied as bronzer. It actually looks like I have a touch of sun rather than screaming BRONZER. Texture is fabulous - finely milled & only a tiny amount needed (since I'm fair) but YMMV.
The container is the same size as the mineral foundation which I find huge. It also has the movable sifter that can be adjusted or closed to prevent spillage.
BTW, I also really like the LM mineral foundation (Real Sand) & have switched from BE with no itching or shiny issues.
UPDATE 11/15/07: Absolute HG bronzer. Gives me a great glow without being glittery. The most realistic bronzer I've found for my fair skin. continued >>
