I purchased this bronzer in the lightest shade and I find that it is the perfect tint of bronze for my very fair skin. It's a nice warm tone and does not appear orangey. It seems to stay on all day and just be a nice simple look, nothing overdone.

I bought this bronzer on a whim, actually I was researching good bronzers from Tarte, to Bare minerals to Benefit, Dior, etc. like mad crazy and I just gave up and ending up buying this. I'm glad I did.
I purchased the color in Deep Tan, which is perfect for me when I sunless tan, not orange not too dark, but definitely can be used to contour. I like using it with my Ecotools Bronzer brush and just buffing around my face to warm up my very pale foundation. Pigmented, doesn't look cakey or accentuate dry skin or fine lines. And the price, pretty good considering I was going to shell out $30+ on a high end bronzer.
I would buy this again for sure when I run out, a little goes a long way and so this will probably last me a good while.

bought this in medium and its just too light for NC42. i seriously have to swipe about 5 times to get some color on my face. wet & wild is much more pigmented than this. trading this in for the dark color. no fragrance, doesnt pull orange & gives a matte finish.

I find it very hard to get a good matte bronzer in the drugstore, so this is actually one of the only I've ever found and liked. It's very pigmented and a nice consistency. The colour isn't too orange and not too brown. I use it for an all over bronze it's definitely not a contour bronzer. The only contra about it is that i found it quite hard to blend. The packaging is also very nice it comes with a mirror in it :)

I was really excited to buy this, first of all when you apply your brush to this so much product falls everywhere, and the actual product broke off the pan. not happy and will never buy this again. too orange also.

This is just okay. I love the fact that it is matte. It doesn't appear powdery on the skin. I also like that it doesn't cause any skin reactions. But, most of all I love that it will last all day long. Great staying power. However, the shades are bad. I tried both the Medium and Deep shade and they seem to be too orange for my skin. This bronzer looks too obvious on, hello carrot face. I wouldn't repurchase this.

Another stable in my daily makeup routine. I use this as an all over bronzer and eye contour. The price is around $6 at Ulta. The shade is pale girl friendly. However, if dropped, this product will shatter. I have a tendency to drop my makeup and I HATE proceeding with broken makeup, however this bronzer is too good to just throw away. If you have oily skin, I would recommend this. I have normal skin, so it works for my skin type as well. I have recently switched to a shimmer bronzer, because my skin gets incredibly dry during winter months.

I bought this after finding out that the shade in Medium is similar to Bobbi Brown's bronzing powder in Golden Light - which is what Lauren Curtis used to contour and I'm NC30 like her as well. I really like it! The colour looks really natural, usually I use a brown eyeshadow to contour but this looks so natural like WOAH! :O Definitely an awesome purchase!

Yep, another extra to 'try out' with my last Cherry Culture splurge. I purchased it in Light and was hoping to use it for contouring as I can't stand frosted products on my face.
It is definitely a fairly ugly rusty-pink with orange tones (I know that sounds weird, but it is truly a weird colour) which I can't see as working with any paler skin tones other than some specific tones. If the colour works for you, then that's great... but it is by no means a universally flattering 'bronzer'.
It's a tad too chalky to blend well (I had to dust myself with a couple of layers of translucent powder just to blend the harshness out), nor is it sheer enough to work as a real bronzer unless you're not going to be seen in daylight, especially if you have any dry, crepey or porous skin because this stuff will ensure that every flaw stands out. Definitely not one to buy online, sight unseen. If you can't try it in person, best use the dosh to double up on your favourite lipliner.
Oh, well. It's been binned and I'm following the advice of one of the women who wrote in about using NYX Hawaiian Coffee eyeshadow as her HG contour powder. I'd actually bought it as a crease shadow but haven't used it for that purpose! I was surprised as, even though it's supposed to be a matte, it's really more like a MAC sheer with a hint of frost to it, yet it doesn't actually give off any metallic shimmer and complements a slightly dewy complexion finish once I've done my BB cream & translucent setting powder routine.
