This bronzer rocks! It looks so natural on my skin.Heaps of compliment by MAs when I went shopping with it on...will repurchase.
Cost: AUD 78
UPDATE: Been playing with digital camera and realised when i use this to contour my cheeks...i look slimer in the photos compared to those where i din use any! continued >>
This looks a deep, dark brown in the compact, but when applied is very sheer and natural. Unlike some powders this does not feel or look cakey, even on drier skin types. I *love* the sleek black packaging, too.
For many reasons I've steered clear of bronzers so far. BUT everything's changed when I tried out Armani Bronzer 1. The color is subtle (although in the box it looks quite scary), blends like a dream and looks so natural I couldn't help buying it.
This is utterly the best bronzer in the land, bar none. No orange, not too much pink. Just a natural flush of bronze. I am a PPP (usually the thirs lightest shade in most brands) I apply a few dustings of this and I look like I just stepped off the beach. And not in a scary Paris Hilton way either. I have tried the CK, SD, MAC, NARS and countless others. My search is over though! I HIGHLY recommend this.
I love this! I thought I had found my HG in Nars' casino, well this gives it a true run for its money. Incredible! It looks darker in the container which cared me. I love it.
Well I do believe this is it - my holy grail of bronzers. This bronzer has absolutely no orange, goes on like a dream, has a bit of rose, copper, bronze, etc. - it is just beautiful. The shimmer is very subtle. For reference, I have used the following bronzers and this one beats them all: Nars, Chantecaille, Bobbi Brown, Cargo, Laura Mercier, Guerlain, Estee Lauder, Lancome, Chanel, and probably more - I cannot remember the rest. This color would be perfect for the fairest of skins to light/medium skins. There are also 3 other colors available. Very highly recommended. $33 but worth it. Also, if you check around, you can order and get free shipping from some SAs (Johnny at NYC Saks).
I rarely wear bronzers as I prefer the pale porcelain look. But when I feel like a change this is what I reach for. This is an excellent bronzer, the texture is very fine and it effortlessly seeps into your skin providing a lovely, radiant glow. I agree with the other reviews;- this is not too orangey, or too gold, or too brown, etc,etc. It is just perfect. PPP gals, if you are looking for a bronzer Armani is a great place to start looking.
This was recommended by the SA for me, I am a pale PPP. When I opened the compact I was sure it was too dark for me, a rich brown color (used to bronzers being lighter/more orange, LOL!). Use a light hand, works great! One of the best bronzers I have used, no orangy look. Great for contouring as well.
Received this from a lovely swapper, as my first exp. w/Armani cosmetics. This really works for me(PPP/FFF cool)! I don't detect any shimmer, it's more of a nice sheen and NO ORANGEY color. Enough color to flatter, but not enough to make me look like the Peanuts Pig Pen.
