I bought this bronzer in 2005 before going on a cruise with my husband. I wanted a natural looking bronzer for my uber pale, self tanning skin. It looked great on the cruise and I have used it all spring and summer long since (without any signs of pan or running out in sight)!

This bronzer does the job, I suppose. It's not shimmery, doesn't irritate my acne or dry my skin, applies evenly with bronzer brush. Bought it at Bloomies. Good natural match for fair skinned girls, like myself. Never yellow/orange. I can't say anything bad about it, but for whatever reason I'm just not *thrilled* - I probably would not repurchase, because to me it just seems pretty average as far as bronzers go. I'm thinking even a drugstore brand may be comparable, provided the shade is correct. It's kind of pricey. I'm beginning to find that powders, bronzers, and sometimes blushes aren't much better at the department stores. It's mostly marketing. :)

this is the best colour of bronzer that i've been able to find as it is a true brown rather than being an orange or even orange-brown. I also like how it has no shimmer at all, and creates a very natural look. What i do have difficulty with however is the blendability of the product, i feel that it goes on rather chalk-like and is very hard to blend on to skin evenely with a brush, i wish this texture was more powdery.

This is my favorite bronzer. I love the fact that it doesn't have any shimmer, & looks SO natural (no fake orange or dirty brown color). I have a medium skin tone, & this just enhances my skin color & gives it a sunkissed look. I have sensitive & acne-prone skin, & this hasn't caused any problems at all. Since I've purchased this bronzer, I've tried 2 other high-end brands, & neither one look as pretty & natural as this does.

This is my favorite bronzer ever, it's very natural looking on my NW20/20 watts skin (30 watts in the summer). This is the first matte bronzer I've loved, normally I prefer shimmer, but this looks fabulous on me, and I never would've given it a second look had a MA not used it on me during a makeover. This is so subtle and natural I will be able to wear it year round. My favorite way to wear bronzer is to apply lightly on cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin, then add a little coral, bright peach, or pink blush on the apples of the cheeks, it looks really nice that way to have some color on your cheeks, but I can also wear it alone, depending on the look I'm going for.

Yep. It's perfect. I am fair olive so lots of warm undertones and you might think that a bronzer with some pink undertones would be wrong. Oddly, it's exactly what I need. Now, this is a very sheer formula so I find that I need a fair amount of it and it's usual a case of layering 2 or 3 times. However, with bronzer I am convinced that this is a good thing because the sheerness is what makes it look real, no? I have tried several bronzers that were thicker or with really too much pigment and you get a blotch rather than a wash of color if you're not really careful, really patient, or just really good. This is foolproof for a busy gal like me or a gal that might want to whip out the compact in her car and touch up. The blush that came in this duo is nice enough and I supposed if it becomes a regular in my arsenal it will certainly save room in my makeup bag. I can't say that it's anything special, though. I would have done better to just buy the full-sized bronzer compact.

Maybe it's just me but I think this bronzer looks exactly like MAC's Strada blush. To me this looks like a greyish pinkish beige. This could help neutralize strong pink/red tones in the skin (as can Strada) but it's not my idea of a good bronzing color. With my rosacea under control--thanks to MetroGel--this just looks dirty on me. I love the texture of Bobbi's bronzer but none of the colors have worked for me.

I love this but you have to have a light hand with this one! It's a true brown and can look dirty of you go crazy with it. I will definitely repurchase.

I really like this bronzer! BB Medium #2 has been my HG bronzer for over two years. I decided to try this one because I wanted something a little lighter. i don't know if the formula changed or if I changed, but Medium was oxidizing to a too red color as the day wore on.Natural is similar in color intensity to Medium #2, but has very slight pink undertones. I have FFF-MMM coloring, fairly neutral (a little to the yellow side) with natural pinkness in my cheeks. This does not make me look too pink and is warm enough to compliment my overall coloring (auburn hair, green-gold eyes). It also stays true to color without turning too red.
Natural has replaced Medium as my HG BB Bronzer! It is a more natural "tan" for me. Texture is as silky as ever. Highly pigmented so apply with a light hand and build up color as needed.

I am an NC15-20, medium brown hair, hazel eyes. This is the only bronzer I have found that gives me a look like I have truly been out in the sun. I have several other bronzers which are very very nice. But "natural" by BB simply is the best. I remember the last time I went to Marco Island. I have a picture taken of me, several days into the trip. BB's bronzer in natural makes me look like that picture, and no other bronzer has come close to that authentic a look. "Natural" is a very plain brown that, I think, has some very slight pinkish undertones. I used a kabuki brush to apply, and then blended with my fingertips in a few areas. This seems like a bronzer that could be easy to apply too heavily, so use care in application. I use this in conjunction with BB's beach palette.

I'm giving this a 2 rating for the nice packaging and good texture/pigment.
I didn't like this bronzer b/c it didn't work with my medium skin tone. I'm a Stila E/MAC NC35 and this was too dark and looked like dirt on my skin. I normally try to make things work on my skin if it's a little off. But this can't be worked for me.
It's a straight medium brown color with no other tones (ie no peach, pink, or orange). Some other people have described it on the board as a peachy color, but I see no peach on it. It's darker than Medium and if you see them side-by-side, you can see how brown the Natural is.
Bought this b/c of a pushy SA who insisted it was perfect. Will definitely be returning this though.
