I don't normally write a lot of reviews as one can see but I absolutely adore this product. I got it 3 days ago. (ordered it over the phone since I don't have an armani counter nearby) Anyway, this is not like any other bronzers I have tried. Until this I was using NARS Laguna or Bobbi Brown Beige Shimmer brick. I must say I love the Armani one the most. Most bronzers are difficult to apply because if you are not careful it can wind up looking muddy or unatural(MAC comes to mind), but for some reason this bronzer is so easy to apply and you almost can't over apply it. It has no reddish or orange tones-straight tan brown with a very slight shimmer. It stays on the whole day. (I think someone said before me that it turned blotchy and faded or whatever, but one must powder or prime their face first before any powder blush or bronzer.) I don't know why anyone would not love this product. I will definately buy again, only next time I will stock up as this will be a staple of mine.
I have yet to write any reviews, but I had to give my opinion on this. This was one of my least favorite bronzers. First, it barely showed up and I am a LLL, second it looked very uneven and faded off in certain areas, giving me a terrible blotchy look and third, the shimmer made my pores look huge. The only reason why I gave it three lippies was beause the packaging was nice and the powder is finely milled. Otherwise I will not repurchase and I am returnung this one.
I'm not a big bronzer person but had to try this because of the reviews and so glad I did. This stuff is awesome. Not overdone with shimmer or sparkle just a soft natural glow that lasts all day.
The search is over. This is the best bronzing powder I have ever tried, and I've tried many: Bobbi Brown, MAC, Nars, E.L., Lancome, etc. For the record, I am an NC30 with rosy cheeks from rosacea, and for that very reason, most bronzers look either orange or red on me. This is NOT orange at all. It has slight shimmer, but it really isn't detectable once it's on. With this baby, I look like I just came back from Hawaii with a glowing tan! Now if I can only get there...
As this is the only bronzer I have ever owned, I'm not in much of a position to judge or compare it. I have to apply it sparingly as I'm a PPP but it does give my face a healthy glow. It is also useful for contouring the cheeks.
I had to jump on the bandwagon to try this bronzer after reading the rave reviews here on MUA.
I am glad that I did.
I called Saks 5th Ave. in Beverly Hills to have it sent.
They shipped it for free, which sure was nice of them!
This is a wonderful bronzer for a more natural light tanned, non-muddy/non-dirty look.
It's very subtle.
Great for us PPP's!
You almost can't over apply this.
I usually have to shake off my brush before applying bronzer, but not with this one.
It's light and lovely.
I used to love Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess, (it's still very nice), but this GA bronzer is now my favorite. You name the bronzer and I have tried it.
This adds a nice glow that makes me look lightly sunkissed and pretty.
Great for summer!
I'm the queens of returns, but this bronzer is staying in my makeup kit for sure!
I saw all the positive reviews about this product and had to try it. I scored one on Ebay for $32.99 so I felt I was getting a deal. The hype is worth it...it's definitely the best bronzer I've used and gives the sunkissed, non-dirty look that we're all seeking. (It's hard to get it naturally here in Seattle!)
A high quality bronzer that gives a very nice colour - natural finish. Definately a new staple of mine.
UPDATE 17/8: If you have sensitive skin I HIGHLY recommend this - no reactions whatsoever, I love it.
Before I actually tried the product, I was a little skeptical with the ratings of this, wondering how on earth it could achieve such perfect ratings. When I actually tried this out at the store, I was stunned - it has to be the most natural looking bronzer on the market. It's a lot sheerer and less intense than Laguna and gives you a "healthy" look in a very subtle way. It is that natural looking to the point where you can lightly dust it all over as pressed powder and it would not look too OTT. This would be a miracle for all those PPP that find most bronzers too dirty looking or orangey. Retails for AU$78 from selected David Jones stores. Would repurchase.
This is a trully great bronzer! Before this I used to use a combination of Nars multiple in Palm Beach and Armani blush in #4 which worked really well too. However, I wanted one product that I could take with me as opposed to two. The color in the compact is very deceptive - although it looks really dark in the compact, it comes out sheer bronzy on the skin. I think it gives my skin a dewy effect even though this is a powder bronzer. I will definitely be repurchasing this product
