Its a perfect very light beige/brownish color with the perfect amount of sheen, without being too shimmery! When I say brown, it is not as brown or bronze as "warmth" but certainly has a very light glowy brown/rose color (but not too light or too dark at all). It just gives your face the perfect amount of beauty without looking like a disco ball.

I ordered Bare, Rose and Pure Radiances, and Bare seems to be the nicest one. I wanted to use them as eyeshadows, because they are less pigmented yet not so sparkly as lots of the BE eyeshadows seem to be. I was looking for a natural, no makeup look with make up on, if that makes sense. Bare Radiance is the best multi tasker of the bunch, it works as an eyeshadow and highlighter on my cheek bones and shoulders. For reference, I use Fake Bake Flawless Self Tanner all over, including my face during the summer. Otherwise I am medium complected.

This is lovely rosy bronze color with a bit of shimmer (hence the radiance.) It looks nice on my fairly light skin and I sometimes use it as a bronzer and sometimes as a blush if I'm going for that golden look. I would definitely buy this again, but as is typical with BE products, there is so much product that I'm not sure I'll ever need to!

I actually use this radiance as a bronzer/cheek color and it works great with my skin color. Easy to apply, blends effortlessly. Highly recommend!

I really like this product. I use faux tan in the summer, but I think that bare radiance will be great for the winter when I just want a hint of color without looking like I am trying to fake a tan. I like to use this as a contour for my cheeks, and then use the clear radiance with it. This color has some pink to balance it out, so it doesn't give you that dull, dirty look that some bronzers can. It also really looks great as an eyeshadow!

PRETTY PRETTY PRETTY :) I use this both on my cheeks and on my eyes (beautiful bare look) Unlike a lot of "highlighters" this doesn't make me look greasy or like a disco-ball. I really like this product & will def. repurchase!

I bought this product which was combined in one package with warm radiance. I feel like bare radiance by itself would be too light if you are going for a more tanned look, but when it was combined with warm radiance it gives a really nice effect. But again, I try not to put too much in the tzone area too avoid the greasy look that I sometimes get after having makeup on for a couple hours,

This is a pretty nice product from Bare Escentuals. I don't really use their products but am pretty faithful to this one because of its versatility. It is indeed on the shimmery side, but if you layer you get a nice flush similar to a Bobbi Brown shimmer brick. Or, I usully just sweep some over blush or bronzer as a subtle highlighter.

Looks like it warms up your skin and evens the tone, kind of like a pair of nude stockings, with a bit of glow.

Gorgeous! I am having a rough day - literally got zero sleep last night, and I mean *none.* Anyway,, just now, at almost 4 pm, I decided to put something, anything, on my face to lift my spirits a bit. I put on some Stila TM in Medium, then dusted Smashbox Soft Lights in Lens over that (OMG! Another great find!!!). Decided to then try out my new Bare Radiance (purchased on eBay last week, solely based on the reviews here - never saw it before IRL), and I LOVE it! Such a soft pinkish nude, but not garish at all. "Nude" just sums it up beautifully. A stunning, natural look. Thanks, goils, and Happy New Year!!!

Of all the radiances,bare radiance is my favorite,it comes out looking
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
i love how this bronzer doesn't give me a deep color on my face. it gives it a nice subtle looking tan. not too dark not too light. it is my favorite of the all over face colors.

This gives me that fresh dewy look. The only complaint that I would have (and this is for all BE products) is that the sifter allows too much powder to collect in the top of the pot so if you are not careful it can get messy.

This is an absolutely gorgeous nude color with a slight pink sheen and I DO NOT DO nudes, usually. Both the All Over Face Color powder reviewed here and the matching lipgloss are just the right shade of nude for my very fair complexion. Nudes usually wash me out completely and make me look sickly. Not this shade---it is a real find! I can wear this (layered a bit densely) as a very natural blush or sweep over the eyes. But I usually put it on first in my T zone and then add a pop of bright color to my cheek apples. LOVE IT.

I love this. I use this as a blush, mainly - also sometimes, I will use it as a wash color for my eyes or to highlight temples, nose and chin - but mostly as a blush. It's a very pretty, natural color on me - a lightly sparkly, subtle shimmery pink to pinkish brown but neutral - not muddy and not too pink either. Extremely natural looking on me, makes me look healthy and sunkissed. I think you get a lot of this product for the money and you don't have to use that much either. This is probably the only BE radiance I might repurchase if I ever run out of it, I really love the color, but after discovering Alima blushes and their shimmer blushes to replace BE radiances, EM blushes, and Fyrinnae, I doubt I will repurchase any BE blushes. You just get so much more for your money from etailers. Edited: 8/08: This is still my favorite Radiance from BE and the first one I bought in full size. I will definitely repurchase this.

I absolutley LOVE Bare Radiance & think it's the easiest, most natural looking bronzer I've ever used. Other powdered bronzer seems to look orange and blotchy on my skin, but even a half-hearted dusting while I'm driving (at a red light, of course!) just makes my face glow. I'm a fair-medium & BE warmth is too orange for me, but Bare Radiance is perfect in the summertime.
Also, when I'm in between summer (just starting to get tan in the spring, or fading in the fall), I mix a little bit of the light foundation with a teensy bit of Glee blush, and a teensy bit of Warmth & blend well before applying - and then lightly dust Bare Radiance all over.

I gave this 3 lippies b/c it's a good product, just too light for my light to medium, olive toned skin. It really didn't show up much at all and it certainly didn't achieve the effect that I was going for. Good product, just too light for me. I'll be swapping this away.

Wow I really like this! Surprisingly the nude-y sheen didn't look dirty/muddy on the skin. It gives a very soft-focus, softly-lit glow to the face. I use this on the cheekbones, brow bones and lightly onver sides of forehead and chin. Gives a natural looking sheen that's not too obvious.
A great colour that will work for a variety of cheek colours. I've used this with soft focus glee, and soft focus warmth. Even on no make-up days/weekends, a light dusting of this would give added dimension to the face and avoid it looking flat and dull.

I wanted desperately to like this - I generally love "bare" or "nude" items. But this made my face look dirty. Maybe it's because I'm not into bronzers at all. Looks pretty in the pot, just not a shade to be on my face. UPDATE: I figured out that I was using way too much of this to ever be able to like this. I still think it can easily look muddy, but if I'm really careful, I can pull this off. Bumping up!
