I was sort of shocked when I decided to buy this-- I've never found a bronzer that looked anything near good on me. Even this product-- I got the sample, tried it once, half-heartedly, then forgot about it. Luckily, I revisited it later, because this is one that is quickly becoming a staple.

As I'm sure many girls besides me have noticed, mineral make-up has great coverage... almost too good, in that you tend to end up one color all over. I didn't use blush or bronzer at first, simply because I had not needed to before, with liquid foundation. Eventually, apple blush won me as a convert, as did Nick-Nack (for a more subtle effect). This bronzer works great combined with either of these, or alone. I want to use it everyday, which is very unusual for me.

So, what's so great about this bronzer? It doesn't turn orange. It's not shimmery. It just gives me a natural, healthy, fantastic, attractive glow... I KNOW! Like every bronzer advertisement you've ever heard... except it actually does what it says! I've never had that happen before! I can't even explain how flattering this is on. It doesn't look brown on me, which is what I was expecting. And it really doesn't look like I'm wearing blush/ bronzer, which is a huge plus... my skin just looks really great and un-made up! I use the "double c" method of application-- sweeping a brush with a small amount of bronzer across cheekbones, around outer eye area, and across forehead to the center of the face, like a "c", then repeat on the other side. This stuff is pigmented, so a little dab'll do ya!
I'm sure it would also be a fabulous light brown eyeshadow, but I don't wear eyeshadow very often (maybe 4x in the last 6 months?), so I haven't tried it in this capacity.

There is a caveat-- this is for the light ladies only. I wear fair neutral (intensive). The soft bronzer is an almost exact color match to fairly light neutral intensive [I literally cannot tell these two apart when they're next to each other!], so if you are that shade or darker it will not show up on you at all.
This is a definite purchase and repurchase, should I ever run out! Highly recommended for my fellow PPPs!
