LOVEEE this bronzer got mine in toasted-completely matt. It gives such a nice tone to the skin, every time I wear it I look like I've been on holiday!! Really really recommend it!

I have a love/hate relationship with this product. When I first purchased it, I loved it and thought it was amazing. Although, after a while I felt it just made me look a little orangey. It is a highly pigmented bronzer so you have to tap off excess before actually applying and use a light hand, which is a good thing I suppose. I used to use this every day for around four months, and I still have a lot of product left so that's another positive. It's staying power is the thing I'm most unsure of -the occasional orange tint I put down to me just being a little heavy handed with the brush that day - but sometimes I look at myself in the mirror and think oh this has lasted nicely, but then other times I feel like a look patchy! These are probably the days I'm wearing make-up for a while without reapplying, I hate saying this as everyone has written such positive reviews and I do love this sometimes, I just feel that it would be better if you were going out for three hours tops then going back home to wipe all your makeup off. I don't think I'll purchase this again, mostly because I'm unsure of the product, it's a lot of money (and I'll be saving up for my NARS Laguna) and also I don't think I'll run out of the stuff.

fter reading the positive reviews, desided to buy this. HAYE IT!!!! It's orange, nearly impossible to blend, even when using a tiny bit of product. Looks like you're wearing a bronzer, making the rest of your face look pale even if you do have a tan. Packaging is juvinile...worst bronzer ever. Going back to Nars Laguna as soon as I return this crap.

This bronzer is simply amazing! I love it, I bought it last summer and I was impressed by the high quality and the look of freshness in my face I absolutely adore it, I don't use a lot of blush but I totally use this bronzer!

I've had this product for about a month and so far I really like it! It's easy to build up to the perfect complexion you're looking for - be it slightly tanned cheeks or an all over tan. I *really* recommend the "Toasted" color - it is a matte bronzer and doesn't make your tan look fake. If you want to add a little shimmer, then do that afterwards - don't make your whole face shimmer (unless you really like that look). I am fairly pale and have received many comments that I look like I've been on vacation when I wear this ... I'd say it's a success! And it lasts FOREVER! A little bit goes a long way.

I like this bronzer. It gives a good, healthy glow. I have the "Gilded" shade, and I think it looks really natural, and not too dark for my skin. The only thing I dislike about this bronzer is that it has a weird smell. I probably would not have purchased it if I knew about the smell, but once I put it on I don't notice it.

I got mine in "GILDED" and it doesn't show up on my NC30 medium skin. I had to apply a lot to get color and then I had to much gold sparkels. Couldn't use it as a highlighted because placed on top of my other bronzer it looked orange.
I say if you have lighter skin this is a great, beautiful, highlight with not too much gold. Just the right amount!
As for me I got to return it and get something a little more pigmented.

I have this in Toasted and I seriously love this stuff. Using a light-hand to add this over my blush gives me such a nice glow. Since this is baked, it's very pigmented so it could look a bit unnatural if you're not careful.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I could never find a bronzer that didn't look muddy, blotchy or way too unnatural before this one! If you have fair skin with warm undertones- get this in GILDED- you will love it!! If you don't mind a little shimmer of course :)

Picked this up in toasted, LOVE using this as an everyday color to contour. Very blendable and buildable!

I have a love/hate thing with this bronzer.
Im an Asian guy, NC42 with MAC and combo skin.
I use bronzers to give my face dimension, a glowy/healthy feel, and also for contour. But as a guy, I dont want people to notice my makeup, rather I wanna look like I have good skin.
This was recommended to me by a Sephora Rep, because I asked her for a non-shimmer, no glitter bronzer thats not RED/Maroon (I swear a lot of these bronzers are a tad too coppery).
This came in an alright ompact packaging, has a great matt non-shimmer look, but it definitely looks a tad red onoutdoor lighting.
My sister even commented on how "clay-like" and red my face is and she obv pointed where my bronzers were at. I dont apply a lot but it just does not work for me.
Soon as I finish this compact, Ill definitely give Benifit's Hoola a try.

This bronzer is the best bronzer I have ever used!! I am a total bronzer freak and I will buy a new one every couple weeks out of boredom. This one however, is the one I will stick with. I use it for and all over color and more of a concentrated color on my cheek bones. It doesn't give me that "cakey" look. The smell is clean and fantastic. Almost like Ivory's soap. I will be getting it again when I run out!! :) Love Urban Decay.

I bought it online on their website- its 50% off there! :)

this stuff is pretty good. its a bit orange but using a light hand works just fine. I wouldn't use this a contour (which is why I bought it) but its a nice bronzer.

I have light-porcelain skin and blue eyes, and I always hated even the idea of bronzer. Then I walked into a drugstore and just asked to see one, just out of curiosity. Well the saleswoman marched right over to Urban Decay (which is great, because I'm vegan and already use Urban Decay) and she swiped this bronzer in "baked" in a W shape over cheeks, nose, cheeks, also along jaw line and down neck to chest.
When I looked in the mirror I couldn't believe the transformation. I was suddenly much healthier and fresher looking than before! Wow - gone are my bronzer phobias, replaced by a love of this fabulous bronzer. It goes on natural and stays natural all day (no streaking, oranging or anything else unpleasant). It even stays while I blot my skin, and being oily, I blot 10x a day or more. I wear this with blush too, for more oomph. Definitely a must-have product, costs $31 at Shoppers Drug Mart in Toronto

I bought thinking I would love it because I love everything else UD. It shows up orange on me though. It is probably worse than any drugstore brand I have ever used. I don't mind that it doesn't come with a brush or mirror because I use my own anyway. The only reason I gave this two stars was because I tried it as eyeshadow and it showed up this really cool ORANGE color on my eyes with the UD primer.

I consider this an every day go-to bronzer. It looks great on medium-tanned skin tones. I use this to contour, mostly dusting in the hallow of my cheeks, forehead, and chin to give a glow. To finish, I dust a peach colored blush on the apples. It makes a huge difference to pair it with the right blush so that it pops. Great summer product, will get a lot of usage.

I like this in the color TOASTED. Yes, when swatched it looks orange but not when I apply it. I don't like the packaging so I leave it at home. Yes, I would buy it again bc it looks better on me than Nars Laguna.

I'm so glad I listened to the reviews on here! This baked bronzer comes in 3 shades, toasted, baked and gilded. I believe they are matte, semi matte and gold glitter based. Gilded is the gold glitter based and the one I bought. I tried baked but found it too dark/muddy for my fair skin. Gilded was a much lighter/glowy kind of bronzer. I absolutely love it. The price is scary at £20 when you can get drug store ones for £3, but I find bronzers can so easily be a 'wrong' shade so it's worth investing in a decent one! Moreover, the size of this bronzer is generous and a little goes a long way so even with everyday use I imagine this to last a few years at least.
I tend not to do full coverage face, so most bronzer show up blockish and too obvious on me, if you prefer a more natural look and want to sculpt your face over your light/medium converage tinted moisturiser/foundation, then defo give UD a try. The gold flecks in this bronzer are a bit scary, but actually it really isn't obvious unless dead up close. As I said before a little goes a long way so don't go too heavy handed. I've used LM shimmer bricks before and they are way too opaque. Gilded gives a more sheer effect on top. I find the staying power decent as well, if I take it on a night out I only top it up once. I get great compliments when I wear this!
My only cons are the compact doesn't come with only sort of applicator so you gotta carry a seperate bronzer brush which is probably better for application. However, if you want touch up applications, a standard shape puff does actually fit within the compact.
In summary, definitely worth checking out!

This is my HG of bronzers. I got it in "baked" (I think that's the shade name, not just product name?) like a year and a half ago and still have plenty left. I think it's the hard "baked" texture that doesn't allow too much powder to dust off during use. I have really fair skin so it's hard to find a bronzer that doesn't turn me organge. I love that this has the most subtle shimmer in the world that it just makes your skin glow. My boyfriend always remarks how I look like I'm glowing when I use this, especially with NARS Orgasm blush.
Also, I have used this on my mum who has olive, oilier skin and it makes her look glowy, younger, and radiant in a pinch! A little goes a long way, but it's also hard to overdo it with this bronzer.
