I love Hard Candy bronzers...I use this one a lot, not necessarily as a bronzer, since I'm pretty tan. But I use it after I apply my Hard Candy tinted moisturizer, and it gives my face this beautiful golden healthy hue. Really gorgeous powder and will make skin radiant, without shimmer or over the top shine. Also, I'd imagine this would be a great subtle bronzer for very fair skin.
This is a very light bronzer and I'm not sure I would even call it a bronzer. But I really like it! I like powder foundation in the summer, but it can look very matte and unnatural sometimes. I sweep this over my for head, nose, cheeks and chin and it gives my face a nice sun kissed glow and a really natural sheen. I use this even when I'm not wearing it over powder foundation, it goes great over anything. It's not glittery disco ball or orange at all.
Review from a goth girl new to blushes/bronzers and the like.
I was going to buy Too Faced Candlelight powder and I'm so glad I bought this instead. Too Faced powder has more glitter/sparkles and this is just pretty shimmer. It also blend in with the skin better.
I'm NC 15/20 and on my skin this give a pretty warm champange glow. Basically a perfect highlight color. Like everyone else said, this is not really dark enough to be a bronzer unless you are Snow White pale. This is definitely a great buy as a highlight. Cute packaging, lots of product for a great price and looks great wet or dry.
I have no complaints with this products but felt I should at least deduct 1 lippie for the fact that it's advertised as a bronzer..on the other hand you can clearly see what's in the package before you buy!
OK, I know it's been said before, but for people skimming these reviews, it's not really a bronzer. I'm more or less pale (somewhere around an NW20) and it's too light to be an independent bronzer for me. I know that sounds weird, but what I mean is, if I apply this over another blush like I would with a highlighter, it gives the blush a slightly tanner feel. It's similar to the glow you get with a tan, but without the color. In that sense, I'll be using this a lot this summer because I can't tan (physically impossible!) but this will still give me that glow that is so nice. Just be careful that you're not buying this for the darker, tan color. It won't give you that at all.
I've been eying this for weeks,just hadn't been brave enough to pull the trigger so to speak.Today I caved,noticing its similarity to the MSF's (this would probably be a close dupe for Shimpagne,hard to say as I don't own it.)
The previous reviewer was correct in mentioning its relative lightness as a bronzer; I was more interested in highlighting properties anyway.It is shimmery,but with a light hand it imparts more of a glow than full on disco ball sheen.
If you're looking for a golden beige highlighter but don't want to shell out the money for MAC,this is a good alternative.It retails for $9 at Wal Mart.
Pretty, but for NW20 skincolors, it's too light to be a bronzer, maybe more of a highlighter. If you are very fair skin & want a VERY light & shimmery bronzer, go for this. This might looks good paired over my matte NYC Sunny Bronzer to give my cheeks a bit of sheen. I showed some pics of this in comparison to my Hula Hula (which is my perfect Hard Candy bronzer shade; Tropics was a bit too dark & orange for my preference). I also showed a pic of both on my hand & you can see that Tiki barely shows up on my skin, you just see beige shimmer.
I'm still determining whether I'm going to swap it or not. Will update!
I'm a cool PPP (NW15/20 in MAC) and this is a lovely, glowing bronzing/finishing powder on me when applied lightly (using my Too Faced Flatbuki brush).
The shade is light pinky-beige w/ veins of gold shimmer (I chose one w/ few veins). Actually, this powder is **very** shimmery. Sometimes I apply it with a denser brush as a highlight as well. I've had no problems w/ this product breaking me out or fading off. All in all, I really like it! Cute packaging for a cheap find, too. continued >>
