I never write reviews but after reading the comments on here for this bronzer I wanted to write one! I purchased this due to the positive comments on here and I really agree with how good it is! I've been using Mac bronzers and was going to purchase Nars Laguna - however this looked a bit muddy on my skin. This bronzer is so smooth and silky and looks really natural on my skin, I like a matte finish too so it's perfect! As others said the brush is useless, I use my own and the packaging feels slightly cheap - so I hope the powder doesn't break! I really recommend this if you need a bronzer that's good value for money!

This is a great product. Its matte, last long and i can use it both for a day or night look. Its perfect. Although i usually dont use the brush they give with it. I rather prefer a bigger brush covering more area in an E manner. Love it totally!

I LOVE this bronzer!!! It's matte (which is rare in drugstore bronzers). There is a small brush that comes with it but I just throw it out because I don't use it. Once I hit pan, I'm gonna rebuy this. I bought it for about $12. I'm a big fan of the products in the Revlon Photoready line.

I'm not the most forgiving person when I review items - regardless of price, it should work. And this really does. I am amazed especially after my last few "meh" purchases from Revlon.
If you have wasted countless hours and dollars on fake-looking bronzers with more sparkles than pigment, you will love this. This is completely matte. Not even a hint of shimmer. It's excellent for contouring, all-over bronzing and has 4 different shades from light to dark in one pan. I love using the lightest and second lightest colour as contour during the daytime & then the darker ones for nighttime looks. They don't give you that orange look and just appear like a shadow would on your face, exactly what you want in a contouring product. It's so highly pigmented I just tap once into the pan and brush on - perfect! This is everything I have ever wanted and looked for in a bronzer/contour. With four colour options I'm good whatever the season or changes in the colour of my skin.
Blends easily, lasts all day and looks natural. I don't know anyone who's bought this and didn't like it. I own other bronzers from Benefit's Hoola to Estee Lauder and MAC, etc . .but I reach for this the most.
If only Revlon made every product as good as this one!

I haven't had good experience with using bronzers for a "sun-kissed" look, as those I have tried managed to make me look muddy and unnatural. However, I have recently started to experiment with different makeup looks and, due to good personal experience with Revlon cosmetics, I gave their bronzer a try. I have used it several times now and think that it absolutely must be one of the top bronzers on the market, from low- to high-end.
As others have said, this bronzer has not a spec of shimmer in it, which I love. Though I am not against a little shimmer, a purely matte bronzer is preferable because you can't go wrong with that. Matte bronzer is a great companion for either a natural daytime look or a more defined look for a night-out, and is surprisingly hard to come by. When I went to get the bronzer, I thought there would be more choices (something to suit fair and dark skin tones, like it is in the foundation and pressed powder department), but Bronzed and Chic is the only one. Now that I have tried it, I can see why there aren't any more options - this one includes four shades that will brighten and sculpt any skin tone!
I thought that the darker shades would be too much, but I successfully use it to define my cheek bones and collar bones, and could not be happier. I use all the tones, usually one at a time. This bronzer gives a youthful, polished look, lasts all day, and looks so natural. It does not turn orange! I love the package design, and the fact that bronzer was made in Italy, to me, is the utmost sophistication (makes me think of Italian leather - so classy!).
The only thing I wish was better is the brush - it is a perfect shape, but feels very rough against the skin, and also sheds. I tried to pull out some hair out of it, in case the brush just needed to be "broken in", but it keeps shedding, so I use the brush I had.
This bronzer was about $13.50 at CVS, which is a little expensive for a drugstore cosmetics, but for the quality it is an amazing find. Others mentioned the overall small pan size of this bronzer, and I must say I haven't thought of it that way. This is a great product to start with to see what shade(s) work for your skin tone, and after that it may be possible to get more bronzer of a comparable quality in a preferred shade for equal price. I imagine this product will last a very long time before I run out, and, currently, I would repurchase it.

This has got to be the best bronzer I've tried. It's matte, no shimmers, glitters, sparkles or anything like that. It also has four colors so that's cool and I love to mix all the colors together to get a medium bronzer color. It's pretty pigmented and blends beautifully. More people should try this. Also it doesn't look orange or muddy on the skin.

This bronzer does stand out as a drugstore product. Though Revlon is not cheap compared to similar brands, this is a good not-so-expensive place to start with a matte bronzer for someone who is just started with makeup.
The pan is completely matte and the 4 different shades remind me slightly of Dior bronzers. Having separate colors can be convenient if you use different shades at once, but I can't help noting that there is not that much product. 10g altogether, there is only 2.5g of each one. Though I really like that the product is unscented. It's made in Italy, in case that makes any difference for someone who's looking to buy.
I see that people like to swirl the brush over all the shades but I actually prefer to pick one shade at a time. When pinched from the sides, the RT Buffing Brush becomes small and tapered enough be able to slide it gently and pick up only one. The white bristles make it easy to see the amount, and also if there is still any left on the brush when you're done.
The lightest shade might be useful for contouring medium-dark skin, while the dark one can be used for heavy contouring. I think the middle two are usable by almost everyone. One is more yellow, the other one more read. It is nice to be able to experiment with each one for a more natural result.
I have to note that the brush is rather nice. These small brushes included in compacts are rarely big enough but this is not so small, and is certainly softer than the one in my Estee Lauder Pure Color blush compact. It did become fluffier too after I washed for the first time. I do like Revlon packaging in general. I find it sturdy, unisex, chic, and rather nice.
I recommend buying this
- if you want a truly matte drugstore product
- if you are new and want to experiment with different shades
- if you want a cheaper matte alternative to Dior bronzers
- if you prefer unscented products
I do not recommend
- if you know exactly what you need and want more bang for your buck. (It's not that cheap if you consider the amount.)
I have almost finished up one, and I'm glad to have a back-up. But I'm afraid I won't be repurchasing since I've moved on to other products.

OMG I LOVE THIS STUFF! It didn't make me look muddy at all like some bronzers can. And you can also use the four different shades for some many different things for so many different skin tones. I normally swirl all of the color together to get an overall bronzed look. And then I used the two shades that are on the left side to contour. It gives me a nice matte shine free finish. I like to use this is in the summer as a setting powder instead of my Rimmel one. Absolutely obsessed and a great price for all of the different things you can use it for! WAY TO GO REVLON!

This is so nice of a bronzer. I used to fave Hoola but this is my new everyday bronzer. The packaging is so good. I love all the details and the fact that it is 4 shades makes my life easier. It will be great on any complexion!
It is all matte which is a plus because it is also excellent for countour my cheek bones and nose. I got it at Walgreens for 40% off which at the end it was an excellent prize!

I don't mind this product. I had been using an INglot bronzer which has now been discontinued. I bought this on sale for around $24Au, but I think the normal cost is $34au - which I think is expensive for a drug store brand.
It is a nice matt finish and I do love the four colours. I tend to swirl the brush accross all four shades. If I want a more definate contour, the darkest shade is perfect. overall a pretty good bronzer, but a little expensive I think.
Would definately pick up again (only when it's on special though).
