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).

This is another must-have for travel from E.L.F. Each quadrant is big enough that you can dip into one individually, which means you have two bronzing shades, one highlight shade, and one pinky blush. You can also mix them together to get a really glowy bronze look. It's both very pigmented and very soft. I find the quality to be pretty similar to my high end powders.

I have tan skin with yellow undertones and this works more for me as a highlighter. A bronzey highlighter because of it's golden shimmer. It's very pretty. It blends in well because it's not too pale like some highlighters are. I can use it all over my face to add a nice, summer appropriate glow. I use this on my body as well. It catches light very nicely because the shimmer isn't too much. I recommend this a lot. It's very versatile.

I don't actually use this product as a bronzer, I use it as a highlighter all over my face. It's very shimmery, but light enough so you don't look like a disco ball. I take a little on my brush and dust it all over my face after I bronze to give my skin a healthy glow. I love the packing, its very sleek and comes with a great mirror. I think this goes for about $3 at Target, which is where I've gotten it before. Just be careful not to drop it. I dropped the first one that I purchased and it totally crumbled. Because its a mosaic, I couldn't just press the powder back together it would've become a muddy mess.
