this is a nice bronzer with a realistic shade to it, no way orange and no way too browny-cakey. there isn't too many sparkles- if anything they are extremely tiny and you can't notice them on your skin anyway (even if you try real hard!).
it brightens your overall appearance and makes your skin looks really fresh and "alive". one rule you need to keep in mind (like with any bronzer) "more is less", you only need the slightest amount to bronze your face. i mainly use it to contour my cheeks, temples and sometimes even as a blush. the price is average and you get a biiiiiig amount! i do use it everyday in the summer and it lasts forever.
i tested #2/ Too many sparkles in it to use it all over the face/ But good for cheeks - very refreshing!!!
love it! great color, my skin is light/medium and it doesn't make me feel orange at all. it is huge too so i feel like it will last forever, def my new favorite.
Since the bronzer craze (2002-2003?) I've purchased them in all different price ranges, from dirt cheap (Rimmel) to expensive (YSL), and never rally been happy with any of them (more of a blush fan)...but this is the one that has impressed me the most (as with other things from the Pupa range). No big chunks of shimmer, no orange/clay face. It is a really nice brown. Love it, and will most certainly buy it again
This in one gorgeous bronzer. I have it in color 03 which contains tiniest golden shimmer - but not too much, just the right amount to give a natural golden bronzed look. As the previous reviewer said, the silver compact is huge, it contains 35g - it will probably last forever. ;-) Highly recommended for face and body!
This comes in a huge compact the size and shape of a cd walkman/discman. It also came with a huge brush with a red handle for application. The bronzer is good for both body and face and applied sparingly gives a lovely 'toasty' look.
The brush is very soft and i use it to apply my tony and tina cosmetic in flesh also.
