I've already reviewed this, but I just wanted to share: My purse got stolen the other night and guess what was in my bag?! On top of a few other Armani products, money, keys, etc., my bronzer was taken. I cried and cried, but I was too embarrassed to admit that I was primarily crying because I had just purchased the LAST sheer #1 at Saks in SF. =( Luckily, my sister is the most wonderful girl in the world and she had the counter girl order me a new one from NY, and it should be here this week. In case you couldn't tell, I'm slightly obsessed with this product. I think it's the single best mu item I've ever used. Just buy it, use it a few times, and you'll fall in love, too.
The best bronzer money can buy. It's everything you ever wanted. It looks like you spent a day at the beach. I use it all over my face and neck. It has no sparkle but leaves a gorgeous glow. Finely milled, top of the line. I am on my 3rd purchase and I hope they never discontinue this product. I would be lost without it.
I used to wear NARS Laguna until I accidently dropped the compact and the product shattered everywhere (annoyingly the mirror stayed intact! grrrrrrr too much talc??). I read the reviews here and decided to take this little beauty for a test-drive. It passed with flying colours!
Most bronzers seem to go orangey on me as the day wears on (and as the bronzer wears off!). I can honestly say this is the best cosmetic I've ever bought! Makes you look healthy and glowing in just a few sweeps. My skin looks sheeny and gorgeous, with no obvious producty look or cheap-looking sparkles. Gave my blue eyes extra oompf too, without the use of any other cosmetics (could this be a new way to save?)!
I loved it so much I bought some pressed powder and creme blush too, and they are just as heavenly. You can't go wrong! At AUD $78 it wasn't exactly cheap, but I've paid a lot more for products that didn't deliver what this can! I think I'm in love, and his name is Giorigio Armani x
Best bronzer I have ever owned. no allergic reactions, staying power and a little bit goes a long way! compact lasts me about 6 months.
Best sheer color of any bronzer I have ever used. I have fair skin and most bronzers look orange on me. This is an exceptional product. Hard to find, but well worth the effort.
I have tried so many bronzers and this one is my favorite so far. Nars Laguna is a very close second, but this one I think I love even more. It looks much darker in the pan that it looks on. It is a light tan that goes on very sheer and natural. It can be built up to be darker if need be. It is much more foolproof than any other bronzer I have tried.
Me: NC25, dry skin, olive-yellow fair complexion
Now I am not the conisseur of bronzers, this in fact is the first one I have ever owned but I love it. I have pale skin and it just gives me enough oompf to look like I've been out in the sun. If you layer it you can make it darker depending on how much oopmf you are going for.
I love, love, love this bronzer. I already have golden olive skin, but there are times I feel so pale and lifeless. I needed something to perk me up, so I went on a quest to find a bronzer. Then I figured out why I haven't bought a bronzer in a long time, it's because there is no bronzer out there that is sheer enough to layer, and wouldn't darken skin that is already on the med-dark side. But walking into Saks today made my day. The GA MA brushed this on my forehead, cheeks, and decollete and I fell in love with it. It looks so dark on the container, but the application is sooo sheer and lightweight. There was just the right amount of shimmer that it didn't make you look like a gold brick. It was the perfect tan, I walked outside feeling healthier and loved it. I have this in #4. I suggest you all try this, especially my med-dark skin friends out there, if you had the same problem as I did or just want to try something new, stop by a GA counter and you won't regret it. I am now thinking of purchasing their lipsticks and glosses, but they were out of stock on the colors the MA matched me with. Oh, well, they put me on a waiting list. Shows you how everyone is just raving about GA products!
Great great product, excellent colour, excellent shimmer(very very subtle) just great. A tad bit pricy though, and very hard to find where I live.
Absolutely agree! This is my HG of bronzers; despite that I have several other bronzers in my drawer, this is the one I always use. The colour is lovely - not too 'muddy' brown, nor too red - just a beautiful, believable sweep of sheer glow.
