An overall great bronzer, I'm quite pale and often bronzers make me look dirty, but this does not and it's easy to use the waves' colors as eyeshadows or to use as a highlight. I've never bought Body shop cosmetics before because they looked so shimmery, but this has been a pleasant surprise; not too shimmery and wears very well, lasting all day long. I will definately re-purchase this again!
I use the top three 'waves' with a blusher brush for my cheeks, the top and bottom as eyeshadow/highlighter with a sponge-tip applicator, and sometimes the brown as an eyeliner. I'm 28 and I don't feel the shimmer is too teenagery for me. The packaging is pretty and I find that I can fit a sponge-tip in there with the product (which is good-I lose them at the bottom of my make-up box too easily).
I'm East Indian and I thought that I would never have a use for bronzer. Was I ever wrong when I tried this bronzer. I put it on my forehead and nose and chin, and on top of my blush and it's colour is so unique. It's not quite bronze, but a "berry" bronze kinda...hard to describe but it stands out. Often regular bronzer doesn't stand out but this does. I bought another one for my purse. If you are darker skinned (even if you are not that dark like me) you should at least try the tester at the store because I'm pretty sure you will be impressed. Definitely not a necessity like mascara or lipgloss, but just a little luxury that definitly makes a difference to your face. Warms it up a lot.
I am not sure if I am writing a review on the right heading or not, but the bronzer I am about to review is in a tube has a brush on top. It is called Brilliance Bronzer. I absolutely love it. The glitter is golden, but not cheap looking. It is very classy and at the same time, sexy and fresh. First, I could not figure out the packaging, but once I figured it out, the application was so easy and so effective. Also, the brilliance stays on and does not go away til you wash it. I highly recommend this-
The Shimmerwaves are SO pretty..I'm loving this one..very lovely bronze on me. I love that different shades are offered.
I'm so glad I have this! It really does give a bronzed look without being over-the-top shimmery. Plus the different shades work beautifully as e/s and I can single out the peachy tones as blush - truly a multi-purpose product. It's great for lightening up your m/u bag when traveling. Too bad they couldn't have made the compact nicer, i.e., added a mirror, but I love it anyway. And the price is reasonable.
I haven't tried the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks, but I have tried at least a dozen other bronzers ~ everything from Estee Lauder to Guerlain to Armani and numerous others. Although I really liked the Armani for a long time, it actually looks "dirty" on me now that I've tried the Bronze Shimmer Waves by the Body Shop. This gives a beautiful and realistic glow to my face ~ not flat at all, but also not too shimmery. The "waves" are composed of 5 colors: dusty pink, burnished gold, copper, chocolate brown, and pale champagne gold. This combination doesn't leave me with the dreaded "orange glow" of so many other bronzers. As far as I'm concerned, it's as close to perfect as I've found! (I'm a GGG blonde, blue eyes, with tanned skin.)
It's ok..really..nothing much special.I have all 3 Shimmerwaves so I can compare them with each other.I like Pink one the best,then Peach and then Bronze.I don't know why I like this one the least but it's maybe because it's a bit dirty looking on skin,and not a perfect bronze color it gives.It definitely looks better from the outside in the package.
This blush did nothing but BREAK OUT MY FACE! :o(
Not only that but the blush goes on very dark, almost like an orangey color.
Will NOT repurchase!
5 shades, one compact, can be a bronzer, blusher, eyeshadow all in one. Its perfect for holidays, touchups, and at the beach. The only problem is that you cant use it with a brush for an even finish as the stuff just doesnt stick on! I dont really like using my fingers to bronze myself because i cant do it evenly! thats my only complaint! other than that it has worked efficently as an eyeshadow & its good for achieveing the natural or smokey eyed look. Its not expensive too & the colour combination & the clear plastic covers actually make the packaging look pretty despite its simplicity! Will have to try their other bronzers but will buy it for as an eyeshadow palette or travel 3 in 1 set instead. :-)
