I am a PPP and I use this in medium with soft pink BB blush. It makes me look "healthy"!
i have the bronzing powder in medium and it's a great color for me. i have very pale skin and this is very natural looking. it doesn't have any sparkles or shimmer which i like. this can be applied softly for a hint of color or you can add more to intensify the color. it's a big compact which is great and seems like it will last awhile. i am done searching for bronzers-this one is great!
I like that there is no shimmer in this bronzer, but I still find the colour to be a little too unnatural and orange-red for my taste. It works when applied very, very lightly to the cheeks/chin only. As soon as I applied it for a darker, all-over bronze-look, it started to look fake. (I'm a PPP - so maybe it is just wrong for me, althougth the SA recommended this shade to me)
Also, I've never dropped the compact and the clasp is already broken.
I will not repurchase.
I've tried so many bronzers out there (mostly powder) and no matter how beautiful they look in the compact, without exception they all turned orange and fake on me. I was just about to give up when I found BB bronzers. Since I'm pale I tried "light" -- orange again. but then the sales person suggested that I try medium-- she told me that people who tend to turn red before tanning in the sun usually look better with medium. (light is for people who tan right away)
and lo and behold-- this gave me the most natural and perfect bronze, but sort of the blushing kind -- the way you might look on your first few day out on the beach-- bronze but sort of sunkissed rosiness.
However despite the glowing review, the compact is just way to big and clunky. You can't really carry around in your makeup pouch-- and this seems to be a recurring complaint on this board.
I got a sample of this in a NM beauty bag a long time ago and I'm still using it. It was a generous sample pot! But, I also don't use blonzer tons. I have a morbid fear of bronzer looking like dirt, or orangey on skin, but this one is a nice matte tan color that doesn't turn. I prefer no shimmer in a bronzer, and so I like that it's matte. I am getting a little braver in using this a teeny bit for contouring cheekbones and a speck under chin, then a bit on forehead and chin for glow. I use it very sparingly and it gives a subtle effect for a bronzer phobic gal like me.
Love this product! I have light skin and have been looking for a medium shade bronzer without spark and this is it. It goes on sheer, so there are no blotches or streaks. The color is very warm and natural-looking.
I just bought this in Medium and am in love. LOVE. Perfect color. Blends with skin, and highlights perfectly. I wear this with lipstick and a little shimmer on my eyes, then I'm done! I look tan!
i love this stuff!!!! the color is beautiful and it isn't sparkly at all (i have the medium). it's easy to apply too much so you have to be careful - add a little at a time.
i'm a PPP but i'm using sunless tanners on my face and it looks great over the tanner, helps take out any yellowish tones. not sure how it would look on totally pale skin.
considering how little you need to use, it isn't very expensive, i think it'll last a long time. and it has a great big mirror! nice compact.
I usually love BB stuff but I have to say I don't really love the bronzer - too much red/pink undertones. I like that it's matte but I need more of a true brown or one with more yellow undertones.
I have the Bronzer in Medium and I love it! It gives me a nice glow without shimmer. It is easy to apply and its a beautiful brownish/pink without being orange. I also use this as a blush which has become my staple! Will buy over and over!
