This is the BEST bronzer for fair skin. I've struggled finding a wintertime bronzer that wasn't overly orange or too dark. This has just enough color to warm my skin up without looking like I rubbed red dirt all over my face.

I'm pale with pretty neutral undertones. I can wear either NC or NW 15 in MAC.

I am also sort of a Physician's Formula bronzer/illuminator junkie. Of the several bronzers I own by them, this one gets the least play. I prefer their bronzer in Moonlight, which I can sweep over my face for a nice healthy glow. It's more subtle--more gold than bronze--and layers nicely with blush. I also do not need a separate illuminator with Moonlight.

This bronzer is darker and just sweeping it on my face would not be a good idea, especially if I planned on wearing blush. However, I do like to wear it by itself if I get some sun in the summer, and it might be great for people with slightly darker/warmer skin. It does have shimmer, but it is not as glow-y as a lot of other Physician's Formula products. Whether that is a good thing or not depends on your preferences.

If you have a similar complexion to me and are looking for something to use as a contour, I recommend the bronze gems in light. Most of that bronzer is MATTE--all caps because it is such a rarity in the Physician's Formula world--and it's finely milled, easily buildable, and offers natural-looking color (NO ORANGE). Just avoid the sparkles on the side, which I find easy enough.

Bottom line: if you're super pale, you might want to look at your other options.

The packaging on this product is amazing for a drugstore product. I really like that it is super build-able for contouring so you don't get harsh lines. The colour is really good for light skin tones unlike most bronzers. Its more of a natural bronzer so it doesn't look like makeup which I love!

This was one of the first bronzer I've ever tried. I absolutely recommend it. It's a good shade too

love. love. love. I have high end bronzer that are not as nice as this so that being said the price is great. This powder is finely milled. This subtly enhances my light freckled skin tone with a warm semi-matte glow. You never have to worry about look overly made up with this product. This gives a soft satin glow but very subtly which makes it look like your glowing from within and can be applied all over the face and still look natural. This particular color is perfectly neutral sort of like a medium beige color-which makes it hard to over due. not orange at all. Love the color, love the finish, love the price, packaging is slightly annoying a clunky.

I picked this fantastic bronzer in the light-meduim shade. The quality is very nice for a drug store product. The application is simple enough- I use a large stippling brush and sweep the bronzer lightly all over my face on the areas tthe sun would touch. I then dip the brush in for extra product and focus on my cheeks. The pigmentation is wonderful, not too orangey at all. There is a bit of shimmer but it is a lovely classy grown up shimmer. I have been rocking this bronzer out with a bright strong lip Rebel or Show Orchid by MAC, and a a sweep of nylon eyeshadow and mascara for the Gods on my gorgeous full long lashes!

Color is very neutral, really didn't do much for my NC20 skin tone.

I owned this and did use it up, but there are better bronzers out there and I'm willing to pay a pretty penny for a good one. I think I bought it because I liked the fat brown compact honestly. Plus it was like ten bucks, so not earth-shattering if it was a fail. It was okay/meh, and I think if you don't want to invest a lot of cash in a bronzer then this is a good option. I will most likely not repurchase, but not because it's low quality. I just like a more high end bronzer.

Because I am so fair skinned bronzer are difficult to get to work on me.... and matte bronzer are a lot better... shimmer looks way to fake on my skin... but I think this product is great just not for my skin.
