i'm currently using this and love it! it lasts long, gives a very nice glow, kinda sheer but you can build it up...basically it's the best bronzer for the natural look~would def recommend to fair skinned ladies :)

I just got this in the Lela Rose and beauty.com set off the Stila web site bc I was desperately wanting the e/s in Starlight and lipglaze in Cranberry. The site says the set includes this bronzer in 02 (the darker option) but I lucked out and got it in 01. I had pretty much written it off before it even arrived. I didn't feel too much more enthusiastic when I opened the compact. I thought for sure it would be too dark for my pasty white skin.
So I was very happily surprised when I swiped some on and realized that it goes on very sheer with little if no shimmer (a big perk in my book). Also *a very important note* it does not look like I rubbed dirt on my face or used a bad fake tanner. The color seems to work perfectly for my skin tone and it even matches my freckles. It camouflages some sun damage around my forehead/hairline area while it softens the look of my fairly large forehead, another perk.
I had given up wearing bronzer for a few years. There are several good ones, like Cargo's matte bronzer, but I just got tired of trying to make sure I didn't overdo it.
Big praise for Stila's buildable color with this product. Thank you!

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff!!! I've been using this bronzer for 8 years and I still love it. I continue buying time after time because I get so many compliments on it and everyone always how I get such a beautiful sun kissed glow.
UPDATE: I've been wearing this bronzer for around 8 years or so. But I recently bought I new one and the color is darker! I have always worn shade 2. Shade 2 is darker and muddy looking now! Im so disappointed.

I got this item from a set so I didn't pay full retail for this. I have the shade 02 which matches my NC30 skin perfectly. It gives me the nicest glow and sun kissed look. However, I've never owned any bronzer before this so I have nothing to compare to. I do have alot of blushes and MSFs, and from what I have, I like this bronzer alot. I like the fact that it's pretty matte which gives a nice finish, especially for my combo skin. :D
I think I'm going to try NARS laguna after I finish this. :)

In love! I have olive south asian skin, and I get quite light skinned in the winter months when I don't have any sun exposure. I had bought MAC bronzer in refined golden over the summer, and it had started looking muddy on me with my lighter skin. Also, too much sparkle for regular war.
I bought Stila Sun in shade 1 after the good reviews here and i am thrilled! The pigmentation is rich and smooth, but you can still achieve a subtle sheer look even with a heavy hand like mine. This gives me a PERFECT sunny, peachy glow. I can understand why this would look too orange on lighter skinned gals, but on me this is just right. No shimmer, cute packaging, the price is a bit steep but this will last you forever, as I just have to swirl my bronzer brush in this once to get good color payoff.
Search for my perfect bronzer has ended!
EDIT: too orange! ugh after finding estee lauder bronze goddes, i realized this color is not the perfect bronze! just need to find something that doesnt break me out

I'm a PPP and i love this bronzer, i use it almost everyday and it looks so great I have to force myself to give my other products some love too.
Gives a natural healthy glow and doesn't make me look a like a disco ball as it's matte.
You could almost use this product to contour.
Would definitely buy it again!

Well, WOW! I got the #2 as part of a set and I am blown away. I was prepared to give it away because I have such major issues with bronzers. EL Bronze Goddess is my HG and really the only bronzer I have ever found believable and wearable on my skin. I'm not sure what came over me but I grabbed the compact and ran to the bathroom, picked up my trusty SB#1 brush and floofed some of this stuff on. OMG! I love it! I am pretty light and thought for sure I would look like a dirty, ugly terracotta pot like I seem to look with most bronzers but not so! I look healthy and vibrant and just plain fabulous. I am not yet ready to say I am kicking my BG to the curb but I am thinking this stuff is at least going to give BG a run for it's (or my!) money.
(FYI, It is a similar shade to EL BG in that it is brown with some red in it and no orange or pink. It is slightly more brown than the BG.)

I really like the way this product looks; it leaves a nice glow. But the product shattered in the compact while it was in a padded makeup bag in my suitcase! I wouldn't buy it again.

The best powder-form bronzer i've ever used!!!!Gives you that natural bronzy glow after first application.and it goes a long way!!!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
My favorite bronzer. It has a natural glow and works really well on my skin. The color stays true all day. I would definitely purchase again.

This is a pretty bronzer that isn't shimmery but gives you 'the glow' its great for when i'm a bit tanner because sometimes in winter its a bit dark eve with adequate bleding it still looks unnatural. But that just because i'm pale!

I'm always on the hunt for a good bronzer and I really liked this one. It isn't too shimmery and does give you a nice glow.

This is the most natural powder bronzer I have ever used. The biggest thing for me is that it isn't shimmery, something very hard to find. The color is a perfect tan shade. The only thing I don't like is that I have to touch it up more than I would like. It fades on me pretty quickly.

I recently purchased this bronzer and so far I love it! A lot of people said it made them look orange and I can see why that would happen if you have really pale skin. I have a beige/medium skintone and I chose shade 1 so it looks natural. The key is to use a very good high quality brush and apply it lightly or it will look very fake. I will most likely buy this again if I don't find a better bronzer. The compact is also quite cute!

I bought this bronzer two years ago in shade 2 and absolutely loved it. My friends and co workers kept complimenting me on it and a bunch of them also went out and bought it. Then I ran out and had to buy a new one last year. I was persuaded to buy shade 3( ltd ed.-i think) and that was a big mistake-it was waaay too dark ( my skin tone is med.) When I got another shade 2, I didn't like it as much as I once used to and now I can't even use it anymore bc I realize I look extremely orange when I put it on, no matter how light the dusting. I don't know if it's my taste or the bronzer that has changed!

I have medium/beige skin with freckles, and tan easily. This product looks too orange and shimmery.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Shade one is kind of orangey on me, but maybe it looks good on paler people. The compact is very cute though.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
I really like this. I am PPP and it is about the only bronzer that looks decent on me. I do have to use a very light hand though!

This was my frist bronzer purchase after the Stila SA convinced me that I needed it (in shade 2). In retrospect, I don't think I needed it at all but I was interested in trying a bronzer for some time and since I love Stila, I thought why not. The quality is very good but I've figured out that I'm not the bronzer type. I think for me it's a good product to use why you want that extra glow on nights out. If I ever buy another bronzer, I'd like to try another brand.
