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.
