The reddish tone to this bronzer creates a really natural looking tan that's soft but also really buildable. Only the smallest amount of product is needed - so one pot will last ages!!
Brilliant for contouring or to bronze the whole face and neck.
Product hold wells on the face and looks great if a powder is applied over the top.
My only gripe is, as its a loose powder, sometimes its time-consuming getting the right amount out to avoid wasting anyway.

I originally hated this product, honestly. I just left it packed away unused, day after day. Then one week, I just took it out and started using it everyday that week. I mostly use it for contour. It stays great, and works well on my skintone, but I'm going to be trying out more new bronzers!

Gives my nc 25 skin a nice bronzy glow without looking overdone or too orange. Best part is it doesn't irritate my skin and doesn't fade too quickly. I can also apply it as a sheer eyeshadow wash.

best bronzer ever!

Best bronzer I have ever used! Not much more to say. I use it to contour and it works fabulous and stays all day. Been using the same one for months and still has a TON of product left. Will definitely repurchase!

This is a fab product. I love the way it gives a glowy bronze look. It makes me look like I've just gotten back from a nice sunny holiday. i like the fact this bronzer isnt a flat colour...and it minerals which is ideal for my acne sensitive skin. the price isnt bad for what you get as you only need a little bit to do the job. I just wish they would make a easier to use packaging for the product...it can get too messy sometimes...especially if travelling like i do often. Maybe if they have a shaver in the package like the smashbox halo products, be a better way to make the most of the product. Oh well...I'm still in love with this bronzer though :-)

this bronzer lasts agesssss because a tiny amount goes a long way, it gives your skin a gorgeous glow and makes you look healthy and radiant, is very pricey though but worth it.

Warmth works well to build a slightly glowy bronzed look all over the skin where it is applied. It has a slightly thick, milled texture that blends well and should be used very lightly and can be applied further if needed. Warmth can also be applied to contour the face and to add slight definition in place of a cream product.

This product was included in the 8 piece Get Started Customizable Kit I purchased in Ulta, and it is definitely my favorite product of them all! I was scared when I saw the color, because it looks so dark and almost muddy looking. As long as I apply the right amount (1 tap of the powder in the cap does the job), it gives me the prettiest glow that no other bronzer has.
I apply this to my temples, forehead, down the bridge of my nose, my cheeks, and a little on my chin. Like I said, I apply a small amount of the powder, but it makes such a difference. It's completely matte (which I LOVE), and really warms up my fair complexion. It's perfect in the summer, but perfect in the other seasons as well. I think almost any skin tone will be able to work with this, I'm so glad I have it as a part of my makeup routine!

Ive been this using bronzer for years, and I still love it. There have been times where Ive switched to other brands for a change, but I always end up using this again. I do think its a little pricey, but worth it. I like that the ingredients are natural. Plus, it does last a very long time, since a very little amount of powder can go a long way! I use this along with other BE face powders and this bronzer definetley warms up my face and adds a beautiful glow!

I like this bronzer a lot. The color is really nice and it's buildable and easy to blend if you put too much on. A tiny bit goes a long way. I've had it for at least two years and I've barely used any. The packaging is annoying, which I guess is to be expected with BE. I used to use BE everything every day (foundation, finishing powder) until it started making my skin really itchy. Anyways, whenever I would clean my bathroom during the time I was using the BE makeup, there would be a thin layer of makeup on everything--the mirror, the faucet, the sink, etc. It was annoying.

I really like this beacuse it gives me fair skin a healty glow, and you only need to use a little.

Absolute favorite bronzer by far. If you put a little too much on it can look muddy, but nothing blending with a big brush can't fix. I put it all over my face lightly and use a bit more on my cheeks. I stopped using it for a while because I thought that it was making me break out due to the bismuth. Verdict is still out on that. But either way, even if it's not right for my skin, it's still a great product and looks awesome! It lasts a very long time becuase you only need a little bit to do your whole face. I got the warmth in a starter kit about 4 months ago and I still have almost an entire jar full. Even if I can't use it every day, I will always have this in my makeup aresnal. It's that good.

This is one of my favorite bronzers when I want to contour. This is my go to for everyday when I want to look like I have some color from the sun. I feel safe wearing this on a daily basis because I've tried too many bronzers that break me out like crazy! It's strange, I don't have a huge problem with face powder breaking me out but something about bronzers with most brand makes me break out. This is one of the very few that hasn't given me problems. This is like a sierra brown, brown with a rust undertone so if you are pale this is not for you. I am medium olive skintone, I get pale in the winter but very tan in the summer. Most bronzers do not show up on my skin at all but this does. The reddish tones are perfect for replicating the natural flush I get when I have a tan. And I love that it's a true matte, not a "matte" with some shimmers like so many bronzers out there. I wanted to try Faux Tan but I really do hate shimmer, even a little bit when it comes to the face. I use Tarte's Matte bronzer in Park Ave Princess when I want someone more true brown with no red since that has no shimmer at all.
I wish this was a pressed powder instead of loose but obviously that's what all BE products are, in loose form. Very little goes a long way with this product, I basically use the powdery residue from the lid and swirl it around and that's all you need.

Very natural, not orange. Can be a bit messy to work with, but nothing a little practice can't fix.

I love the natural looking color it gives me and it's the only bronzer I've been using for a few years now. It doesn't aggravate my skin and works with my skin tone in the winter and in the summer. I agree the packaging isn't the best, especially since it's a darker powder, but that's my only complaint.

Pretty basic, nothing sucky, nothing great. Gives some warmth to your face, just like it says.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
The texture and feel of the product is very good. However, the color looked absolutely horrible on me. I looked like I was playing in the dirt. The color was too dark and muddy for me. BE products are in fact affordable so if you can pull off a dark bronzer, this can be for you.

For reference I'm NC30. I normally wear medium beige BE foundation, but it tends to wash me out just a tad, especially on my forehead where I'm the darkest. When I first became a BE user, the starter kit I purchased from Sephora came with the original Warmth. After a couple attempts to apply it correctly, I gave up because I always ended up looking to ruddy. After a couple years I decided to give soft focus warmth a try and I'm glad I did. All you need is the TINIEST amount to give yourself a soft glow without looking too orange. I barely put any product on the tip of my double ended lighten/brighten brush to get started. I use it to contour my cheeks, on my temples, along my jawbone, and a light swipe on my nose and chin. Remember to start off with a very tiny amount of product and you can always apply more if needed. It's harder to fix your mistake if you start off with too much.
I took off one lippie because I have to try to keep the container flat or too much product will come up through the sifter and onto the lid and it's hard to get the stuff back down. I like to have the lid clear so I can swirl/tap the right amount of product in my brush. Maybe the sifter needs smaller holes?

This looks really pretty, but it's too inconvenient. I have to be so careful not to spill, and it's too easy to make it look muddy.
It DOES look pretty if I make sure to dust enough excess off. Idk.... I just don't feel like it's worth it.
