This huge compact gives me a natural, sun-kissed glow. I'm self tanning my face so I'm not my usual fair self, so this bronzer looks just gorgeous on me now. I don't know if I'd like it as much if I didn't have the fake tan though, it might be too dark/orange.
It's not matifying, that's for sure, but it's not sparkly either. The brush that comes with it is OK, it deposits a good amount of powder, more than my regular Quo blush brush.
Overall it's a good bronzer, I won't buy again since the compact is so big that I won't be finishing it any time soon.
I LOVE THIS BRONZER! It's alot better than MAC's Bronzer. It's really perfect and gives you an instant glow! I love how u can use it anywhere! and the name is so cute. It's very very pricy but definately worth every penny the only thing I don't care for too much is the compact it's HUGE! but I love the mirror. Even though I can't fit the compact into my purse! other than that this is an awesome beautiful bronzer..I hate shimmer blush/bronzers and this has very little shimmer..IT RULES!!
I love bronzers, and am always on the lookout for the 'perfect' one. This one comes very close, and it's the one I use most often. I have neutral medium toned skin, and can't do anything with too much yellow or orange. I like the color of Bronze Goddess, not orangey, or muddy. It's sheer, and has a bit of gold shimmer that is not really noticeable on the skin. I fluff it on my upper cheeks, across my nose, and even use it as shadow, and it looks totally natural. I wish the case was smaller, it's a little big for my makeup bag, but it's well made and sturdy, and I do like the half-moon brush--perfect for sweeping the bronzer across my cheeks and the bridge of my nose. Doesn't make me break out or look oily (and I have oily skin). Great product!
I got the bronzer when it first came out and always resort to it when I want to look like a goddess!
I find the brush enclosed in the compact is useless since it deposits too much color so I use a large fluffy powder brush for a natural glow. I'm an NC25-30 and I find with a light hand, I can get a beautiful bronzed look.
Besides a nice, not too orange color, you get sooooo much product for your $$, I doubt I'll ever need another one!
Awful on my very fair skin. I had gone to the Estee Lauder counter to purchase a new foundation. The SA removed the blush on the one side of my face during the color match so offered to touch things up. She applied this bronzer. I took one look in the mirror at my awful clown cheeks and went straight home to wash my face and reapply my makeup. I was embarresed to have anyone see me. I had huge orange splotches on both cheeks. Yuck - much too dark for my fair skin. Looked so unnatural. Much darker than my natural skin tone - anyone would know it wasn't the real sun.
Ok I have no willpower. Was talked into buying this bronzer when I went in for other EL items. SA convinced me I'd love this bronzer. And I do sort of like it. It's better than other bronzers I've tried but I have a small problem with it. It goes on rather sheer(good for my LLL complexion) and looks fab at first but after about 6 hours my pores look huge and my skin looks rough. WTH? Color doesn't exactly turn orange on me but still turns slightly or should I say deepens? And I have n/d skin so it's not an oil issue. I do wish I could get this to look all day like it looks when I first apply it. If someone can help, I'd appreciate some feedback cause I'm still on the fence if I should return this.
I like but don't love this bronzer, which may be due entirely to my ruddy complexion. I'm a LLL with strawberry blonde hair in my mid 40s. Likes: not as shimmery as NARS, but don't be fooled by "matte" finish, it definitely has a soft shimmer to it. Also, the price for size is as good as it gets. Dislikes: fleks of red in color. I think the NARS Laguna color is more true to tan than this one. The only reason I gave up the NARS was the over the top shimmer. The Bronze Goddess is not a bad product, but redheads with red tones in complexion should test before buying.
I love this product. My roommate got me into and bought it for my birthday. It does not make you look orange or anything. I wear it all the time and am complimented on my tan (ha if they only knew). It lasts FOREVER too. I have had this one for over a year and a half and there is plenty left. It is expensive, but worth it since it looks so natural and lasts for so long.
I really love this bronzer. The color looks so natural on and it isn't sparkly like it seems to be in the compact. It gives me such a nice soft glow whether I am already tan or completely pale. The compact is huge and will last a long time so the price is worth it. I have a lot of bronzers but this is one of my favorites i always come back to.
This bronzer is better than I would have ever imagined it would be in it's compact. I saw it recommended on the KA site ages ago. In the packaging it seems far too orangey and sparkly for me to ever like it. I decided to give it a try anyway. Boy, I was glad that I did. It looks beautiful on my medium-pale skin. Better and more natural than many others I have tried (Benefit, Clarins, MAC, etc.) There is a very generous amount of bronzer in the compact so it will last for a long time and although the included brush is far from perfect, it is much better than many applicators that come included in makeup. Will definitely repurchase.
