I picked out this bronzer because I was searching for something with ingredients that were not too harsh. This is quite a task, and can result in bronzers that do not blend, do not last all day etc.

When I swatched the Tarte bronzer- I immediately thought omg- orange. I decided to purchase and am so happy I did. I orginally purchased the non-matte version and it created a very nice- glowy effect on my skin. It was a very light bronzer, but that is great since I wear it during the day at work, and I have a nice natural-looking color to me.

Then I went back and bought the matte one. This one is slightly darker and I love wearing it. They both blend so well, look natural and last all day. I am on the pale-ish side, so darker gals might need a darker shade then these offers. But if you are looking for a bronzer where you do not compromise performance for ingredients- this is for you.

I love this bronzer! It applies wonderfully and so smooth, and the colour payoff is great as well. It is very long lasting, and has a nice natural look to it. The bronzer has no shimmer in it, which I love, and I will certainly be re-purchasing. I've been using it for about a year now and still reach for it over others

I love that its Matte & waterproof. I'm not one who likes to touch up my makeup. I bolt when my face when it gets oily. I like to apply my makeup once during the day, until its time to remove it at night. I also got the top rated Tarte 12 hr. blush in Exposed. Now I just have to find the perfect foundation that will keep me shine free all day.

Love this! It's matte, so I don't look like drag queen. It stays all day and is waterproof. It's also good for your skin. I will use it again! A little goes a long way!

I really do love the color. I just got with a Two Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer, I didn't buy that again because it was a dull color, it almost made me look like I used dirt as a bronzer. This however has a nice natural color that makes me look healthy an natural.

I bought this in Park Ave. Princes....I love the color! Unfortunately I wouldn't suggest it for anyone who has reactive skin and is prone to breakouts..even if you haven't had one in a while. I broke out only where I applied this...I am very sanitary, clean my brushes, not to mention I'm an Esthetician. I do not suggest this bronzer to anyone with acne prone skin.

I was so excited to try this bronzer because I am in love with Tarte's Amazonian Clay blushes. The purpose of this product for me was to find a matte bronzer that I could contour with, but I am very disappointed.
I am about a NW30 and this does not show up, at all. If you are a tan asian like me, or in my shade range (or darker), do not go for this.

The second problem with this is it broke out the area that I applied it in big cystic acne. I have about 3 mountains right next to each other where I contoured under my cheek bones and along my jawline. For the price paid, I am very disappointed and will certainly NOT be purchasing it again.

By far the best bronzer I've used. Got this in Park Avenue Princess. It isn't too orange, doesn't oxidize on my skin, and is matte which is good for my oily skin. Just a light dusting and I get an instant glowing tanned look to my face without looking shimmery or "off".

When I first bought this, I found no use for it. It gave off almost no color to face, so I just left it in my makeup drawer for the longest time. Recently, I gave it another try and I honestly don't know what happened, but I love the color it gives to my face. It could be used to tone down any color if I've applied too much of another bronzer on accident or look natural on its own. As for the matte factor, I have not yet gone into the water with this but it seems promising with the reviews I've read about it
