I really like this bronzer it is a little bit shimmery but gives a nice bronze color and doesn't look orange. I would definitely repurchase it again.

I first bought this product after watching several YouTube reviews on it. I used it for about a month. However, I noticed that I was frequently breaking out on the sides of my cheeks where I contour. It took me a while to narrow down the products that were breaking me out, but I finally figured out that this product was it. I still use it from time to time, but it's not something that I can use on a day-by-day basis. Also, I am a person that absolutely loves shimmer and glitter. So, if you are the same then this bronzer is for you because it had just the most beautiful hint of shimmer in it. On the other hand, I do not recommend this product for people that are sensitive to shimmer or glitter as it will cause breakouts.

I am an NC30 for color refrence.
Hard Candy is one of my favorite brands of make up. I've worked at Sephora before and have tried every high end product available, especially bronzers. This drugstore bronzer definitely comes close to the higher end ones. I prefer a matte bronzer because my blush/highlight already gives me a shimmery "glow", but when i pair this with Hard Candy's "Skinny Dipping" blush and Wet N Wild's "Reserve Your Cabana" Bronzer (I use it as a highlighter) it is absolutely gorgeous! This isn't my favorite bronzer but I really do like it because it looks great in photographs and definitely gives me a healthy glow, and isn't too overpowering on my already tan skin. I like the versatilty of this product because I got away using it when I was an NC15, which is bascially as pale as you can get. I love the packaging, and this definitely will look amazing and not orange on most skin tones. It's also lasted me AGES, I've had mine for over a year.

I am in love with this bronzer! This past summer this stuff was a staple in my beauty routine. I've already bought it twice because I used it so much. The packaging is cute and sturdy, and the bronzer is really high quality! This stuff is so great for the price, I mean i bought mine at walmart! It doesn't look orange or fake at all. I am really pale usually and this made me look like I actually had some color on my face, but really natural! I use it all over my face, even though it's just meant to be a bronzer. I don't cake it on, but just sweep it evenly over my face. It makes my face really glow if I'm going for a bronzed look. It does have some shimmer but it just looks really natural. I love this stuff!!

I like this bronzer. I'm not a bronzer connoisseur or anything, but this stuff is a nice color and it stays on well. It's got a tiny bit of shimmer going on, but nothing crazy.

Like this bronzer but this is shimmery so it is almost like a darker highlighter. I wouldn't recommend using a lot of this product and putting it all over the face because the of the shimmer. However, if used sparingly (on cheeks and cheekbones) it is quite beautiful.

my best friend and i go tanning often, but our faces and chests never seem to be as dark as the rest of our bodies. we use this and put it lightly all over our faces and chests and i like the color it gives. it makes me more even and it's not too orange seeing as my skin is already lightly tanned. i haven't used it on my skin without a tan, though. i don't like the shimmer at all. it gets all over me somehow. but overall, i enjoy this product.

I picked this product up at my local Wal-Mart! I have been using it for about 2 years now. I will normally wear it everyday even in the winter! This product lasts forever, I just bought my second one only because I dropped my other one and the cover broke, but the bronzer is fine!
Adds such a nice glow without being to much! Has a nice shimmer to it! Its so cheap, for such a good bronzer, whats not to love!!

Great bronzer. I've owned Laguna and I don't really think it's similar. Actually I like this better..it gives a better "glow"..I hate shimmer but I love that iridescent look some products give - and thats what this bronzer does - gives real glow and subtle bronze - no actual shimmer whatsoever on the face. Is it a HG? - I'm not sure, I like trying new bronzers but I have a feeling I'll always repurchase this in my rotation as well.
Tip for really pale girls - STOP buying the lightest bronzer in a collection just because your pale..Almost every pale bronzer is very peachy which doesn't look bronze on anyone, and VERY VERY VERY unnatural - Instead look at the whole collection and pick the least orangy one - even if its the darkest one and buy yourself a good skunk brush instead. You'll thank me - I'm so tired of seeing pale girls complain about how orangy all bronzers are, its because your not buying the right color in the collection.

I love the hard candy bronzers!
They usually last quiet a few hours once applied and give good color, natural color (if blended correctly) and the very slight shimmer looks so nice!
I actually apply this on the apples of my cheeks instead of blush and it looks wonderful, it really brightens up the face.
The packaging is not that durable, I just had mine in my purse, zipped up in a makeup bag and the top broke and ended up getting bronzer all over my purse. BUT the product was so good I still bought another one!
The first color I had was heatwave which was wonderful too , but they were sold out.
This color is really light on skin tones other than fair.
It is more so a highlighter , but still adds little tint.
Overall I give it a 5, it is cheap, does what it says, and is a good product.

I love this bronzer. The color is perfect and it could only be improved by having slightly less shimmer but it's not a problem over matte powder. I would avoid layering this over anything that has a sheen or iridescence, however. I had a really shiny day when I used this over a loose PF mineral foundation that had some kind of sheen to it.
My particular pan looks like it has some rather large shimmer "veins" compared to others so I'm tempted to buy another and see if it is a bit more matte. :3
Packaging is perfect and sturdy, no bullshit mirror or sponge or crappy brush to get in the way or add weight or further drive the price up.
p.s. I apply it with the ecotools bronzer brush for best results!

I generally like this bronzer. It takes a while to build up colour, but I consider that a good thing because I don't like my bronzer to be too pronounced. Goes on smoothy and doesn't make me look orange.

This is the lightest bronzer shade that Hard Candy sells. It is a light brown with gold shimmery veining through it. It doesn't show up orange. It's not very dark...matter of fact it doesn't show up much even on very fair skin so it is more of a highlighter than a bronzer. I use it as a highlight or as a ''blush'' on days I don't want to wear an actual blush but I don't want naked cheeks. I love the color and the formula is great. It's smooth and blendable & lasts very long if you have a good base. I would buy again.

This bronzer gives me mixed emotions. First off, I really like the packaging. A lot of reviewers on youtube have been saying that it looks really cheap, but if you like the whole Urban Decay and Ed Hardy look, then the packaging will definately appeal to you. One thing I don't like about the packaging, which goes for the Baked Blush as well, is that it doesn't have a mirror, so you'll have to bring a seperate compact on the go. (-1)
The price was a little bit on the expensive side for a DS bronzer, but to be fair, you really do get quite a lot of product. (12.5 g)
In the packaging, the color of the product looks truly brown, will a little bit of copper shimmer in it. However, the color payoff is not that great. You have to use quite a heavy hand or multiple applications in order for it to really show up when using a brush. I got it to show up on one application when I used my fingers to rub it onto my face, but I really didn't like having to do that. Once it does show up, however, the color is really quite nice. It comes out a bit more coppery- brown and has a bit of a sheen to it. It isnt too orange on my fair- medium skin tone, but when my friend who has a darker complexion tried it, it turned out really orange on her, so I would probably wouldn't reccomend this to people with medium skin tones or darker. Also, I use this bronzer for contouring right under my cheek bones, which is why I want it to show up better. For an all over the face glow, this product's color pay off will probably be great.

The tone of this bronzer is beautiful(: It gives you a sun kissed glow and it looks natural. Its more like a high lighter than a bronzer but either way it looks great . I have fair skin and i was about to purchase the tiki but it was to light for me so i went for the hula hula(: And oh my It looked so gorgeous with my skin tone :DD . I will repurchase this product.

This is a really pretty pale glowy bronzer. It's very inexpensive, and for the price you get a lot of product. I am very pale and try to stay away from bronzers, but this one is just really nice. It warms up the face without making it look dirty.

I love this product as an alternative to the Nars Laguna bronzer. The hula hula shade is very close to it, the only difference is that it has more shimmer. It looks very nice, it is buildable, and has never looked muddy on me. I have this product and the Laguna Bronzer and sometimes when I'm wearing laguna I'll use this as a highlight along the tops of my cheekbones since it is more shimmery. I also think it performs quite well on its own, it gives you a nice glow. I'd definitely recommend this to someone looking to try out a bronzer, expand their collection, or is simply looking for a good inexpensive alternative to the Nars one.

i love this bronzer but i hate that it's baked the dome looks like its about to fall off every time i use it =( but i love how soft and silky it feels on the skin and shimmers but not too much, just enough would rebuy in a different color

This is the first bronzer I've ever purchased or used. I'm still using it, and I haven't really experimented with other bronzers, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I love the product a lot!
Hula Hula (131) is a shimmery bronze color that is very flattering on my skin tone (NC30-NC35). You get a heck of a lot of product, 12.5 g, for the price ($9) and it's lasted ages for me.
The packaging is so pretty. One thing I will say though is that because it's white, you can see the product dust accumulate around the edges which is sort of dirty looking, but you can always wipe it off with a moist towlette or a makeup remover wipe after you've used it to wipe off your makeup (which is what I do).
I apply it using a duo fiber brush and basically just swipe it across my whole face. It's shimmery without being overbearingly glittery, it just gives your face the nicest amount of dimension because I know for me I love matte, full-coverage foundations which can leave my face looking flat.
I never truly appreciated the importance of bronzer before buying this product. To my eye it didn't really make too much of a difference but seeing my face in photos I was startled, because it looks so natural yet it makes my skin look flawless. I don't know if it's just this bronzer or it's all bronzers in general that do that for your face, but I know that this is the one I picked up for the price and the amount you get and I don't regret it. It's a high-quality product and if you're in the market for one I definitely recommend it.
I wrote that I would not buy this product again mostly just because I want to try others out; that has nothing to do with the product itself!

This was my very first bronzer I ever purchased. It's very intensly pigmented and has a lot of shimmer. It's also a large amount of product for $6 - 7.
