This product isn't for the pale. I used it, looked like Snooki. On a friend of mine with a darker skin tone, this product was gorgeous. Also, this product crumbled when a pair of two year olds got into it, and was easily fixed by pressing the powder into place. A wonderful product for people with olive skin!

I went to Ulta spent $200 bucks then felt guilty and went to Wal-Mart trying to find cheaper things like bronzers from Rimmel, foundation superstay from Maybelline and so far it's pretty darn good. This bronzer's like magic, looks like more people are looking at me. :o I hope it's for a good reason I feel more beautiful and that's all that really matters right? I do want to try Benefit's primer and foundation though because the Maybelline's foundation after awhile reveals my acne scars dips and dark spots, luckily the bronzer makes it look like freckles. Later I'll review more on Benefit products and Maybelline Fit foundation/primer. Before the Maybelline I loved the Lorac color corrector in light and medium. Absolutely love this brand.

I purchased shade 27 Sun Dance after hitting pan and completely used up my 22 Sun Bronze. While 22 Sun Bronze virtually is a matte bronzer that I love using all year round for warming up my face and contouring subtly, 27 Sun Dance is more for the dead of winter. It pulls a glowy peachy golden on my very yellow Asian skin so it really enhances my tan skin at the moment. The powder itself has a satiny finish but I always end up with a bunch of tiny golden glitter on my skin that I buff away with a clean brush so oily skin and large pores please beware. I especially love 27 Sun Dance on top of my 22 Sun Bronzer during the dead of winter since it helps perking up my deadly yellowish pale skin so much. Pigmentation is decent, I can easily build the intensity up or buff away and last me a good 5-6 hours on top of my powder fdtn. I definitely will repurchase when this baby runs out. On that note, 1 star for the price is good value you repurchase right?

This is a great bronzer, it works the best for me when i contour. The color is amazing, giving me a nice effect without over powering, the reason behind the rating of 4 is that it has somewhat of a shimmer, but its all in personal preference. Overall its a great bronzer and definitely worth the 7 dollars, im up to my second one cause i lost the first and had to repurchase this

My HG Bronzer!! I'm n my second container! The color makes my face look like the sun danced on it. I found a replacement for my expensive one:)

I bought this as an impulse buy since it was on sale. I've had it for about 2 years now and it still looks untouched. Not because I don't use it enough, but because a little goes a long way. This is NOT matte. It has shimmers on it so a light hand would be ideal. I have NC35 skin and this looks great over my blushes. I also swipe it down the bridge of my nose and sometimes on my chest to give them a glow. This is cheap and a very good buy!

This stuff will last you forever! It's cheap and has sooo much product in it. This particular shade, sun dance, has a ton of micro glitter in it and the bronzer is a little shimmery. Not too shimmery though. Half matte. Even if i tap the excess off, bits of glitter float around my face. I don't recommend wearing this in sunlight. It smells great. I've seen $22 shimmery/glittery bronzers at Victoria's secret recently and this one is highly comparable and beats VS. I suggest buying the other shades without glitter they have great reviews. Using a light hand and tapping off the excess is helpful.

Ok I tried more expensive and higher rated bronzers, but keep coming back to this one.
I'm fairly pale so bronzers usually go muddy on me. This doesn't. One swipe over my forehead and cheekbones, down my nose and I'm done and looking healthy.
It looks sparkly in the pan, but not on my face. Looks far better than the matte bronzers from Estee Lauder or Physicians Formula.

Looking below, I see all of the awesome reviews on this product, and unfortunately I will have to differ here. I bought this bronzer after seeing all the glowing reviews about it on YouTube and by several personal recommendations. My biggest issue that I have with this product is the color itself. It looks very orange and fake on my face, especially when my skin has not tanned much (I used this as an all-over glow type of thing). It also feels kind of grainy when I try to swatch it with a finger. This bronzer blends pretty well, though. The staying power is so-so- I can easily rub it off even if I have my most stubborn foundation underneath. It's also kind of sparkly, but it's not too much of a drawback, but sparkly bronzers aren't my thing. It also smells nice, which is a pleasant little touch. The price is good though- I only paid like $6 for it and you get a lot od product. The packaging is really crappy though- it's really cheap-looking plastic and the lid hardly closes tightly, which kinda makes me nervous when I carry it around in my bag. I really want to like this product, but I just don't feel like it's the right bronzer for me. If it works for you, then yay :)

I bought this product because I heard a lot of great things about it from people on YouTube as well as here on MakeupAlley. It was a bit of an impulse buy, though, because I usually take a closer look at the products in person before I buy, even if I've done research on the product.
Honestly, my favorite thing about the bronzer is the smell. It's not overwhelming or irritating, and you can't really smell it unless it's up close.
The packaging is one of the things that confuses me. I can't figure out how to get it to close properly because the lid is always coming off. It feels cheap and flimsy. Although the sort of embossed sun on the bronzer itself is quite nice.
I have two issues with this product.
1) It has sparkles. I wouldn't call it glitter, but it definitely sparkles and I can see it on my face. I've always been more into matte bronzers, though, so it definitely depends on your taste. I don't mind a sheen for a bit of a glow, but this is kind of like a matte bronzer with some sparkles thrown in. Maybe I just got a weird one, though, because I haven't seen a lot of complaints about this.
2) This color looks horrid on me. Again, it totally depends on the person, but this just makes me look orange and tan... even if I apply a minimal amount, my face instantly looks about 3x darker than the rest of my body. And just as a note, my face is actually lighter than the rest of my body. I'm also of medium skin tone, although in most concealers and foundations I'm light-medium. It just looks like a really bad tan job... and the orange undertones prevent it from being a contour powder, as do the sparkles.
So, overall, I'm not buying this again... these are just points that I had problems with but that other people might like in their bronzer. I'm just picky, I guess. :)
