I scored this magnificent bronzer at 50% regular price; so basically, it was $10(CAD). I wouldn't have bought it otherwise, but now that I've used it, I'll gladly repurchase it at full price if need be. I chose the "sunlight" shade, which is for medium to dark skin tones. I have olive skin with a year round tan. This bronzer adds extra oomph and contours my face nicely, without looking obvious and/or overwhelming. The shimmer particles are very slight and nothing too extravagant. It helps that this bronzer has an added golden section, your bronzing brush will pick up both pigments and mixed together, it's very flattering. I promise you, this does not look orange on me at all! It's perfect!

This is a lovely bronzer, I would totally reccommend those with oily skin to use this product if you are looking for a bronzer. It really contures the face without causing future breakouts.

I have fair skin that is sensitive and usually dry. I had first purchased the Sephora brand bronzer in the gold compact and it broke out my skin terribly. I saw this in CVS and decided to get it since there was a $4 coupon attached to the box. I had planned on purchasing the Cashmere Wear one but I could tell right away that one wouldn't work for me. I bought this one in the light shade and as the spring turns into summer I might go for the darker color. I love this one because it adds a subtle touch of shimmer without making my face look like a disco ball. It looks soft and natural on and it doesn't break out my skin at all.

Im not too crazy about packaging and it would be nice if it came with a mirror but other than that, this is my first bronzer and I love it. It has just enough shimmer not too much, lasts all day, evens out my skin, doesn't feel heavy, it gives me that sexy summer glow all year around the price is good since it lasts all day overall I would buy this product again I am in love with it and you guys have to try it

i purchased this in "starlight" for medium skintones. this is actually quite a sheer bronzer that would be very suitable to just add some slight warmth to pale skintones. this barely shows up on my nc25 asian skin. this will not give you a really bronzed or contoured look. the centre of the pan is the shimmer powder - it is very subdued shimmer because it is so tightly pressed that it is hard for a brush to grab. the bronzer itself is slightly shimmery (hardly detectable on the skin) with strong golden hues. i personally enjoy a bit of a deeper more pigmented bronzer on the face so i probably wouldn't repurchase. i mainly use it to contour my nose because it's sheer and looks more natural. this is a decent quality product, it really depends on how you like to apply your bronzer.

I just got this bronzer and I can't say I like it too much. I think I may have bought a shade too light because it doesn't really show on my skin. I am really pale right now since it's fall, unfortunately, so I thought it would show, but it doesn't! So I'm a little dissapointed.

I like that it is pale and has two tones and some gold shimmer so you can blend accordingly and it doesn't look orange. I don't use bronzer often but this one is good, I don't like to look very dark bronze (it looks fake since I'm pale) but I like a soft sunny glow. The packaging seems to be a little bit flimsy, some of my other Physician's Formula products have broken before. Also I know that its price tag which is in the teens it is cheaper than a product at Sephora would be, but for a drugstore product that is a bit pricey. It looks good though.

I have this in Starlight and this will be my HG bronzer for forever! I have NC30-35 Asian skin and I bought this bronzer about two years ago after reading reviews on here. I have since hit a large amount of pan on it and I will buy this again. It has a soft and silky texture and it's pretty sheer so it's really buildable. The center is a shooting star and it's pretty chalky, but it adds just a tiny bit of shimmer that is barely noticeable. The bronzer itself is semi-matte - it looks pearly in the pan, but on the skin it only has a *slight* glow on it that transfers on my face as mostly matte but healthy looking.
Since this shade is just a little bit darker than my skin, I can use this all over my face for a healthy glow, or I can add more in an E3 shape around my face and it can build up to make me look sunkissed. It lasts all day and it never looks orange or streaky or muddy for me.
I also like the packaging of this better than other PF products since it isn't bulky and doesn't include the useless brush. I don't mind that it doesn't have a mirror since I don't need to touch up with it. I would recommend this to everyone since it comes in three shades!

This color is a bit too brown for my very pale skin. Otherwise I like it: shimmer is not overwhelming and the color is not too intense but buildable.
Wouldn't recommend for pale girls like myself. I have to keep it very, very light to seem natural.

This bronzer is awesome! I bought it in 'Sunlight' and I love it. It has a very natural look, not orangey at all! It has just the right hint of shimmer, without looking glittery. All in all it gives me a healthy summer glow. As a sidenote, I think the packaging is super cute! Although it's a tad on the spendy side, I think it's worth it. New HG!

Great bronzer but no shimmer! I had higher hopes... It goes on nicely and is a nice natural color which you can layer. I am still in search of a bronzer that shimmers well, until then I will not purchase this again.

My HG bronzer, and for so cheap! Though at first glance the large, shimmery, golden moon on the bronzer can be intimidating for many because most do not want their face looking like it's covered in glitter, on the skin this bronzer provides the perfect color! I'm NC25, and this bronzer provides a very natural and non-orangey looking color, unlike many other bronzers that I've tried. I can layer this on without looking like: a pumpkin, glitter-covered, or like I have a bad sunburn. The packaging on this isn't all too stellar, but I'm sure as long as you're not chucking this at any walls or wood floors anytime soon you'll be good to go! EDIT: If you're looking for a bronzer to give you some color (which I am as I recently bought a too-light foundation) this is not the bronzer for you!

I really like this bronzer a lot. Im very fair so I have a hard time finding the right bronzer, but this was great. Its not an every day look but when I go out some it was nice, it actually made my skin look really good. I got lots of complements on it, however in pictures it the sparkles which seemed subtle were really noticeable and it was a little pricey. But other than that I really liked this product.

I have this in starlight and it's my HG bronzer. It's a perfect bronzer for my nc30 skin tone. The packaging is pretty sturdy and not too bulky, so i carry it around in my purse just in case i need a touch up but i rarely needed to. The product itself is not glittery but the cute sun in the middle is just a tiny bit shimmery. Very versatile. The bronzer part is semi-matte and look very natural on the face, not orange at all. My friends always comment on how pretty my skin looks and it's all the work of this bronzer! I highly recommend this product.

I like this bronzer, but you need to be careful and don't put too much or else your face will be too dark. Other than that, it does work nicely and isn't too expensive. I will be buying this again. =)

Love this bronzer! For many years, I've always went back to this reliable bronzer. This looks pretty on-no orange glow-no heavy sparkle!
I have a few other bronzers in my bag, but I seem to use this one most often.

I bought "Sunlight" and I really like it. I bought it because I was in the process of replacing all cosmetics that had oil in them...which I found was nearly every powder and bronzer I previously owned. This is oil-free and I believe talc-free. It has not contributed to breakouts. i use a large foundation brush to just apply a general hint of warmth. I use it on top of their mineral powder, or for evening, on top of liquid foundation.
-Blends well, looks natural
-"glows" without sparkling or being glittery
-looks red if blended poorly or applied too heavily or over foundation that has not fully dried
-may settle into wrinkles

I have this in "moonlight" and absolutely love it. I'm very pale and this is one of the few bronzers that always looks great on me. It gives me a healthy, subtle glow without looking shimmery or muddy. I use it on days when I'm going for an easy, natural beauty look.

I bought this twice already. But I have to say that the second time around I don't adore it as much. The color is very nice (especially for fair-skinned ladies) and buildable, but I feel that the shimmer is just too much after building the color. It's so sparkly in the daylight. If it was just the bronzer without the shimmer part of it, it would be much better because the shimmer takes up such a large part in the compact.

This product lasts a REALLY long time, for those of you who might be antsy about the price. I used to use this all the time in high school and my friends would always ask me how I was so good at applying makeup! I loved this product, but now that I'm older (or is it just the trend?), I feel like pale skin is more attractive, so I haven't touched it in awhile.
