Pretty colors and very pigmented. Like stated its more of a highlighting bronzer.. I do have to be wary with the dark brown on the bottom. I am pale skinned and that brown is just too dark and hard to blend. But other than that I like it. The packaging is terrible as with all physicians formula. It completely fell apart after having it for a long period of time and then part of my product broke. Also they are a little over priced. But other than that good product!

I LOVE this. I have it in Vegas Strip as well, which was my first. Now, if you ladies mean bronzer like all over, yea then it's too shimmery. I use it on my cheeks and whatever little bit is left over on the brush I'll swipe on my forehead. But it's not supposed to cover every inch. It's like a highlighter/glow and for that I love it. I also use it on my eyes and I think it's fantastic for that. For those of you who thought it wasn't pigmented I so disagree! The last few corners left over from my vegas strip I've used as shadow for a complete look. It brightens you up no matter where you put it. It's fantastic.

I am a blue eyed NW10 (NW20 when tanning from a bottle).
This is a high impact highlighter, a little over-powering for the day time. I like this for evening looks, especially for when I need to have a pink-ish look. Soft and Gentle, my evening highlighter, is a bit more neutral and golden champagne colored. I don't like this for my forehead, but I love putting it ontop of my blushes.

Chalky and doesn't blend well.

I love this product! It's so pigmented and it can be used for so many different things!! I use it as a bronzer, eye shadow, and a highlight. It does not break me out either. The colors are really nice, but they are all very shimmery... So if you don't like that, you probably won't like this. Overall, this is a great product!!

so i was experiencing with high lighters and came across PF its pricey for being a drug store cosmetic.They were having a "buy one and get the other one free" so i thought it was an awesome deal!! so i got the miami stip and waikiki and vegas umm lets just say i was disapointed. they arent pigmented the dont have lasting power. They are so gorgeous i wanted to love it but it failed so not theyre just taking space in my makeup drawers.

LOVE this!! Read the reviews first and this is now a HG!! It is shimmery but just enough. I have even worn it without foundation on and my skin still looked good. Haven't used it as a highlighter yet but will soon. Was using Cover Girl one (see my reviews) but it was too dark and wasn't even the darkest they offer.

I like this bronzer it gives my nc40 complexion a nice glow. Today i went for an all bronzy kind of look. I applied it all over my cheeks and temples (as a highlight) on the highest points of my forehead & dabbed my finger in the pink shade and applied it on my nose and cupids bow for a very pretty highlight!!!!

Better as a shadow and highlight than a bronzer. It might work well for dry skin. On me though since I have oily skin I have to be very careful or it will highlight my pores. As a shadow though it is very pretty.

My goodness. I've had this same bronzer for possibly years. I've used it every day and though I've hit a little bit of pan, there's plenty left. So you're definitely getting a good investment as far as price to consumption.
I use this both on my cheeks and also on my eyes. With a fluffy blending brush I use it to either add color to my eyes and color in my crease with the different colors, or swipe it along all the colors as a blending color if I'm doing a smoky eye. Adds some shimmer and some gradient, looks beautiful.
I love it as a cheek blush/contour/bronzer. I don't necessarily need contouring with my face shape, nor bronzing since I like being fair. But adding some to my cheeks just warms up my face somehow. I look more... sophisticated, as opposed to pink blush, which makes me look youthful. I always use this color if I go for a sexy smoky eye.
Highly recommend. Oh, and I also have the Bobbi Brown kind (my mom got it as a gift and passed it down to me), they both work exactly the same. Go with the cheaper one and save your money for something unique and special!

I am obsessed with this! I swirl a brush in the lighter shades and sweep this on the tops of my cheek bones and my brow bone and it looks beautiful. These colors are also perfect as eye shadows, so pretty and shimmery and effortless. I use the light pink in the inner color of my eye, take the shadow next to that and put it all over my eyelid and then take the darkest color and put it in the crease of my eye. It is one of my favorite eye looks. Highly recommend this! I also have the shimmer strip in vegas strip, which is more golden tones, but the miami strip is so much more flattering on me.

Fabulous as an eyeshadow! Perfect for highlighting. As a bronzer, WAY too muddy looking and shimmery. Overall though, a keeper.

I use the colours as eyshadows, not a bronzer (too shimmery). Perhaps not as smooth and buttery as some higher-end eye shadows such as Urban Decay but they are just as beautiful... These are actually the eyshadows I use the most... what can I say- they may be less trendy than Mac eyeshadows but they look prettier on the eyelids!

I like this, but definitely not as a bronzer. It works as a highlighter and really pretty eyeshadows. I do have to be careful when using it as a highlighter on my cheeks b/c it can end up looking very powdery or cakey.
I don't know if I would repurchase, as I feel like I could find something better. However, definitely not a bad product.

I was at my local drugstore today and saw that there was a $3 off coupon for this product, so I got it for about $10, which was a great value. I first reached for it in the infamous 'Sunset Strip', but I found it a bit too dark for me, so I hesitated between Miami, and Waikiki (Peachy Glow Bronze), but ultimately chose this one because of the 'Healthy' aspect.
Although the product suggests to be used as a bronzer/blush, I use it for pretty much anything but that. I LOVE to use the different strips as eyeshadows. The colors are perfect for a beachy, glowy, summery eye look and are very easy and smooth to apply. The pigmentation is great and the colors are fantastic, either blended or alone.
So I use it mainly for eyeshadow, but I also like using the top color of this as a highlight for my cheekbones. It gives off a wonderful glow to enhance your features.
The packaging is nice, and doesn't bother me one bit.
I took off one lippie because it's waaaay too shimmery to use as a bronzer/blush. But, when you use it as eyeshadows, it's just so perfect that I had to give it 4 lippies.
Bottom Line: Get it if you're looking for a great set of summery/bronzy eyeshadows.
I would definitely re-purchase/ try out some different colors!

i really like this product, but i wouldn't really call it a bronzer. when i have tanned skin it gives me a beautiful glow when i use it as a highlight. the colours are also great to use as eyeshadow. it's a great product for the price.

I'm a sucker for bronzers, but still looking for my HG. This is NOT something that should be used as a bronzer, as the other MAU have said, the colors are absolutely beautiful for eyeshadow or a highlighter. But I made the mistake of eagerly applying this as a bronzer before I went to work..big mistake. I looked like a ball of glitter, no thank you. The packaging is nice and sturdy, seeing as I've dropped it plenty. For a drugstore product it's sort of pricey but not unreasonable. As for now, I'll stick to Benefit's Hoola for Bronzer until something better comes along.

This certainly wasn't cheap for a drugstore product. I regret purchasing this, but I know I'll end up loving this like everyone else as soon as I get a little bit of natural sun. Right now I'm around NC10, so wearing this bronzer looked like the equivalent of rubbing brown oil on my face. It wasn't pretty, and I'm actually quite embarrassed that I wore this in public. Another thing: the smell! It's an odd little smell, I can't really describe it. But it's there. If I have better luck with this once I get a tan, I'll definitely update. Until then, I give this three lipsticks.
