I have this product in pearls,but it works the same (:

The packaging for the product is very nice,but the lid keeps falling off which can be annoying!I put on this product in a circular motion with a big,round brush.I like it because I have a medium skin tone,so it gives me that bit of coverage for redness.I can't see why people are giving the product so many bad reviews!!! I love the product so much.It glides on effortessly and gives me a nice glow.It isn't costly either (:

My experience with this product is a lot different from the reviewer below me, but opinion, some what the same.
Ugh! What gawdly awful product! I Firstly, in reference, I'm NC30, medium skin tone. The purpose of why I brought this was, how wonderful would it be to have an inexpensive bronzer/highlighter to keep in your handbag as touch up.....FAILED!
Packaging, I agree looks cheap, and mine was a little jared too, so it was really difficult to open all the time.
Extremely sheer in my opinion, absolutely no pigmentation, with soo much shimmer/sheen......OH MY GOODNESS...I was glowing all the time, but it the wrong possible way!
This product never seems to set, so its always moving, and not durable at all. I use this as an eye shadow and absolutely no colour showed up, heaps of sheen/shimmer and it really made my eye lids look oily!
When you apply this on your lips, the feeling is really uncomfortable, it always make me feel like I've got a thick layer of lard. This SERIOUSLY dries out my lips.
I swear majority of Avon's product has been a huge miss for me.....Despite it being affordable, it was still $14.99AUD in Australia.....You might as well buy a goldish brown coloured Maybelling, Rimmel or CoverGirl(Whatever cheap brand) lipstick and double it as a touch up bronzer. It would have worked soo much better then this useless product!

Well here's a product I completely regret spending my money on. This is actually supposed to be a 3 in 1 bronzing stick, meaning you can use it as a bronzer, an eye shadow, or a lipstick. Being on the fair side, I chose this the Shimmering Bronze version of it - it also comes in Deep Bronze.
Sadly, this is unusable. When Avon do bad, they do really bad. No matter how hard I tried, this did not work in a way that could allow me to leave my house wearing it. So if you're wondering about lasting power and the like, I'll be of no help.
No here are the basic reasons why this is useless.
One, it's not even discreetly shimmering; it's straight up matte and flat.
Two, it's not bronze. It's actually plain brown with coppery undertones.
There you have it. I thought a bronzing stick would be a good idea, and here I am, left with a matte brown stick. It looks like I'm smearing dirt or pottery clay on me. It's absolutely hideous on the lips and useless as a bronzer. Maybe it could somewhat work as an eyeshadow but the color it gives is still hideous.
And the reason why I rated the packaging as rubbish as well is, when I first tried this and realized how wrong it is, first thing I did was check the tube to see if I got the shade I ordered. Well guess what; that still remains a mystery, because the shade is stated nowhere on the tube. Actually, nothing at all is one the (cheap, goldish plastic) tube; not even the name of the product, not the ingredients, not one thing. Are Avon serious? This is a joke. Alright, let's suppose this junk might actually work for someone; but who would ever find it acceptable for a company not to list their ingredients on the product? Or even the shade and the product name? I really wonder what it is I got; not even at the dollar store do you get a completely label-less product.
Money wasted. Worst item I've ever had the misfortune of bringing into my stash.
*UPDATE* Mystery solved. There's a teeny tiny sticker on the very bottom of this which reads "Avon Shimmering Bronze", provided you use a magnifying glass. As for the ingredients, they are still absolutely nowhere to be found. So if you're even considering throwing your money away, you take your chances at what you put on your skin.
