LOVE THIS BRONZER. It gives the most beautiful summer bronze glow. It is SO cheap and not junky at all. It is kind of small but that's ok because it's SO CHEAP ($3 in US). Amazing color pay off also. I just really love this product, fully recommend it!!!!

I love this as a brightener and eyeshadow. While it isnt SUPER pigmented, thats what makes it great to just brighten up my face it brings a bit of color without being over-powering. I dust it on my temples, nose and cheekbones for a pretty glow. Love it, but its not a bronzer

I use this product quite often, for me the lightest colour (on the bottom) is great for a blush and I combine the two darker colours (at the top) for a great bronzer. It's small and compact, very easy to carry around in a handbag or even purse so you can apply it wherever you are :) also has a handy mirror included.

One negative point is that each segment is quite small and the make-up brush I use is quite a lot bigger, so it's hard to get just one colour on the brush because their all so close together! Often end up with two - three of the colours on my brush but I don't mind too much because I think they look quite good with my skin tone (luckily).

Be careful with how much you use! Sometimes when I'm rushing I use too much bronzer and it looks horrible! Especially since blush/bronzer is near the end of my make-up routine and I have to wipe off ALL my make up and start over again because I used too much bronzer (it's quite hard to get off without removing the rest of your make-up).

This is another must-have for travel from E.L.F. Each quadrant is big enough that you can dip into one individually, which means you have two bronzing shades, one highlight shade, and one pinky blush. You can also mix them together to get a really glowy bronze look. It's both very pigmented and very soft. I find the quality to be pretty similar to my high end powders.

I have tan skin with yellow undertones and this works more for me as a highlighter. A bronzey highlighter because of it's golden shimmer. It's very pretty. It blends in well because it's not too pale like some highlighters are. I can use it all over my face to add a nice, summer appropriate glow. I use this on my body as well. It catches light very nicely because the shimmer isn't too much. I recommend this a lot. It's very versatile.

I don't actually use this product as a bronzer, I use it as a highlighter all over my face. It's very shimmery, but light enough so you don't look like a disco ball. I take a little on my brush and dust it all over my face after I bronze to give my skin a healthy glow. I love the packing, its very sleek and comes with a great mirror. I think this goes for about $3 at Target, which is where I've gotten it before. Just be careful not to drop it. I dropped the first one that I purchased and it totally crumbled. Because its a mosaic, I couldn't just press the powder back together it would've become a muddy mess.

Amazing used as highlighter! Works great as a brow highlighter, no problem with packaging , price is perfection. Buy this , its worth those 3 bucks I would honestly pay more its a good product. Very multi purpose even as shadows would work still have to experoment on that. But for bronzer nope I wouldnt use it even though ELF names it a bronzer? For reference I'm NC15.

UPDATE ': Although it is a great as highlight, it breaks me out. Been using it on cheek bones and certainly there comes a pimple. Two lippies down due to the fact that I can't use this .BUT it is a great product if you're not sensitive.

I'm a huge fan of ELF and their products, so this Golden Bronzer was a little bit of the a let down for me. I probably bought this 5 or more years ago and barely touched it. I brought it out of my makeup bag a few days ago, because I'm slowly getting back into loving and purchasing makeup. I tried it today, and it made my pores look HUGE. I'm not sure if it's the shimmer or the formula, but I don't have large pores to begin with and other products (even shimmery bronzers) have not given me this effect. I'm thinking that the texture is probably the culprit of this situation.
So, as a bronzer I would probably not use this again. But, I could use it as a highlight. Just above the cheekbones and on the brow bone would probably look nice. But, I have better highlighters in my collection (benefit high beam and the balm mary lou-minizer), so I won't likely reach for this one.
Overall, I probably wouldn't repurchase, just because there are better options for bronzers and highlighters out there.

This one is really up in the air for me, I probably use this everyday, but not in the way I intended to. I am pretty fair,not quite Casper, but fair, and I bought this to contour with, however even using the darkest shade I get hardly any color pay off, so for the first week I had this it sat in a drawer, and the buyers remorse kicked in. Another fun fact about my skin tone is my cheeks are naturally very rosy, which makes some eye looks hard to pull off, so I use this as a highlight to tone down the natural pink in my cheeks and for that purpose it works quite well, I use the E.L.F. Studio Small Stipple brush swirled in all the colors to apply a light golden sheen onto my cheekbones and the yellowy tone, plus the shimmer dulls the pinky-ness in a way that is very natural and pretty. so all in all I love the product but it is not very pigmented, ultimately fails at what it is marketed to do, and I probably will not repurchase
