I LOVE ELF PRODUCTS, but this one... Such a disappointment.

Too shimmery. It may be okay for highlighter, but for a bronzer? Useless. It did not feel like changing my skin colour at all, too transparent.

But as in highlighter... It is still too shimmery for me.
I want to just throw it but my friend said it would be a waste, so... Yeah, I gave it to her then.

Not sure how she would use this useless thing, though.

I am an Nw20 and this is waaaaaay to shimmery to be used as a bronzer, so I used it as a highlight. If you like golden highlights then this is perfect for you. I only liked the creamy shade since I prefer a light highlight so I didn't use the darker shades and when applied they were a too dark for my liking. I prefer a cooler pink highlight. Wouldn't repurchase because of the shade but it is a very good powder and wears nicely throughout the day.

This is a nightmare as a bronzer, there's way too much shimmer in this. The color doesn't last long at all, so it leaves you with little sparkles all over your face. However this does work as highlight for me, and I'm pretty fair.

I'm not a huge fan of bronzers, probably because I'm so pale. I'm also lazy, so I tend to skip blush, bronzer, contouring, etc. most of the time and only use blush if I'm wearing full coverage foundation. For some reason, I decided I wanted to try out bronzer again, but I didn't want to spend much money on it in case I hated it, so I headed for the E.L.F. stuff.

I was really skeptical about this one because of the shimmer and my past "hit or miss" experience with their products. I have combination skin, so shimmer and I are not BFFs most of the time. However, this is actually a pretty nice shimmer. It doesn't stand out as much as I expected, so I don't look glittery, just glowy. It's also not too much for my ghostly complexion.

Overall, for $3, I give it a thumbs up and would probably buy it again if I wanted more bronzer in the future. I used a small(ish), soft stippling brush and blended the four shades together, tapped off the excess, then lightly applied it. I think this might even been light enough for winter to brighten up my face.

Found the colors to look pretty in the pan.
Had too much shimmer to it.
Did not blend evenly and did not look natural on the skin.
Product felt ok when swiped but looked chalky.
Not a good shade for my neutral medium tone

This is beautiful! The packaging is amazing and with a $3 price tag it is definitely a must have. The pan is a pretty big size so that's also a plus. I love it as a highlighter more than a bronzer. I bought this after a friends recommendation. She said this was her fave product to highlight with so I bought it and never looked back. Amazing, I will definitely repurchase. It's an amazing drugstore find.

LOVE THIS BRONZER. It gives the most beautiful summer bronze glow. It is SO cheap and not junky at all. It is kind of small but that's ok because it's SO CHEAP ($3 in US). Amazing color pay off also. I just really love this product, fully recommend it!!!!

I love this as a brightener and eyeshadow. While it isnt SUPER pigmented, thats what makes it great to just brighten up my face it brings a bit of color without being over-powering. I dust it on my temples, nose and cheekbones for a pretty glow. Love it, but its not a bronzer

I use this product quite often, for me the lightest colour (on the bottom) is great for a blush and I combine the two darker colours (at the top) for a great bronzer. It's small and compact, very easy to carry around in a handbag or even purse so you can apply it wherever you are :) also has a handy mirror included.

One negative point is that each segment is quite small and the make-up brush I use is quite a lot bigger, so it's hard to get just one colour on the brush because their all so close together! Often end up with two - three of the colours on my brush but I don't mind too much because I think they look quite good with my skin tone (luckily).

Be careful with how much you use! Sometimes when I'm rushing I use too much bronzer and it looks horrible! Especially since blush/bronzer is near the end of my make-up routine and I have to wipe off ALL my make up and start over again because I used too much bronzer (it's quite hard to get off without removing the rest of your make-up).
