I haven't had much experiance with bronzers mostly because they scare me and I don't want to end up orange and shiny.....but after reading the reviews on this I decided to give it a go...And I love it! It's not too dark...not too muddy...not too orange....not too shimmery, It's perfect!! The packaging is so so....the lid isn't secure. But Whatever...I got it on sale for $5 (Canadian pricing) and it's saving me from having to but a darker foundation and I can contour with it as well, or use it as a summer blush....I think its fab.
I loooooooove this! So cheap and really delivers. I use every day to get a healthy glow and for contouring. Only downsides r the cheap casing that makes it easy to shatter and u need to re-apply midday.
This is hands down my favorite bronzer. It's perfect. You can use it alone or over your foundation, or for contouring. The only thing I dont like is the way it's packaged. I can't even count how many times I've dropped it and had it shatter into a million pieces.
This is a great product for us fair girls because it does not turn us orange or make us look glittery. It's a great matte bronzer that gives just the subtle glow of spending time in the sun. It is buildable too. It's great for puting over liquid foundation as well as applying blush overtop or using a shine control powder as well. A must-buy for the summer!!!
Finally a bronzer that's not orange! I love this bronzer, it's not shimmery, first of all. I hate a lot of shimmer on the face, it looks fakey.
PROS: It's actually a BROWN bronzer. Miracle of miracles. It's a nice texture and can be used as a contour because of the lack of shimmer.
CONS: A lot of product comes off on the brush and I don't love the pan it's in.
OVERALL: My fave bronzer. It looks great, natural, luminous. I absolutely love it.
This is an alright bronzer. I thought it was a little orange, but not too bad. The main thing though is the wear is terrible! It seemed to dissapear after an hour and I don't have oily skin.
But I love the smell, it's the classic makeup smell!
oh and for some reason i like the packaging, it's cute.
Today, I got extremely tired from work so I ventured into a nearby drugstore. Sephora is a few blocks away but I am getting so tired of their BS high end products that doesn't do s****. I read about Rimmel blushes and bronzers on several popular blogs so I went and bought 3 blushes and 2 bronzers.
Now here's my opinion: WHAT? 5 bucks for a bronzer? GTFO!
This thing seriously beats NARS' Laguna. If you are NC30-35 like me and find laguna looks kind of like dirt on your face, then you have to try this one out! It will not disappoint!
For a drugstore bronzer, this isn't bad for those of us with fair complexions. There is no shimmer so with a good brush it should be a good contour color too.
This product didn't look natural on me and seemed a little too orange. Sometimes I'd use a big fluffy brush and apply a little bit all over my face for a very sheer glow since contouring with it doesn't work for me at all.
I bought two.
I love the texture and the color which gives me a natural glow and does not turn orange... I do compare it to BB Bronzer / Light for the color and texture... but at a savings of about $ 25!
so, for all the many reasons already stated, this is a magnificent bronzer for lighter skins -- it will not show much on darker skins.
