Fantastic bronzer for light-to-pale skin. This gives me (NW15-20) a beautiful and subtle golden glow that's almost impossible to overdo. I love products that you can slap on a little haphazardly without having to worry about proper placement on the face, especially when you're in a hurry - this is one of those products. No matter where I put this, my face looks lightly bronzed. SInce the product is so subtle and goes on so well, you don't have to spend an eternity blending it out for it to look "natural". It just looks natural right away. This bronzer might not be a great choice for someone who wants a dark, pigmented bronzer so keep that in mind. The microshimmer in it (no chunks of glitter) gives the face a nice sheen. The product gives me enough warmth where I don't have to wear a blush or a highlighter, which is great on hurried mornings that I need to be out the door fast. Doesn't have the most incredible lasting power (5-6 hours), which is why I took off a lippie. But what can you expect for ~$5? I will say that if you're a pale-skinned girl looking for a great subtle bronzer, this is a product you DON'T want to miss.
Lots of product for a great value! Would definitely re-purchase again.

For NC30, this may not work as a bronzer, I mean if you want to look like you've been in the sun, this product is not going to work. It has very fine shimmer, and if applied layer after layer, you are sure going to look like Christmas decorations.
I find it works great after powder/mineral fdn, to take away that matte powdery look.
I was considering getting the Guerlain 4 season bronzer, but after this product, I am not going to.

I really like this Bronzer and wear it most days. I am fair skinned but rosy. It gives a fairly subtle glow. It has shimmer but does not make you look over done. Great packaging with mirror. Excellent value.

ELF products always have quality that exceeds the price point, in my experience, and this bronzer is no exception. The color is really pretty, fairly light and not orange at all. The powder goes on very evenly and blends beautifully. The compact has four different pans that comprise it, which you can swirl together or use the colors individually. The packaging is sleek and holds up well. It has never caused me any skin problems. You can't beat it for $3!
But, a word of advice: this is not an all-over-the-face sort of bronzer. It is VERY shimmery, which makes it lovely as a highlighter, for cheeks, collarbones, cleavage, what have you. However, if you try to apply this all over you will end up looking like a gold robot. Seriously, too much and your skin looks metallic.

I've been using this everyday. Will probably not but it again because it is a little to light for my complexion bit I really do like it. The glitter really doesn't bother me at all

Hey it was $3, not a huge waste of money, but this one isn't for me. It's too shimmery and didn't give me that sun kissed glow I wanted. I think I'm going to use them separately as eye shadows instead, hence the 2 lippies instead of 1.

I would buy this again but not for bronzing. In my opinion it works a lot better as eyeshadow then bronzer. The colors are too pigmented and sparkly for a bronzer. But for eyeshadow? If your looking for a little nude pallet and dont wanna spend a fortune then here ya go! The packaging is really nice. After a while of using it mine got these white beads in it? They were mixed in with the product and i thought that was a little strange. I really do like the texture of these!

Oh man! What a wonderful product! I just hit pan on it today which sparked my interest in writing a review. I bought this a few years back when i was a bronzer virgin & had dry skin. I'm super pale and i really liked how this gave a subtle bronze with a hint of glow. Never ever looked orange or overdone. Fast forward three years and now I have a drawer full of bronzers and suuuuper oily skin. Needless to say this went to the back of my highlighting drawer and i didn't pull it out again until recently. knowing what i know now about makeup & bronzers I don't think i would recommend this as an all over bronzer, but it goes beautiful paired with virtually any cheek product as a highlight. the four quadrants also make beautiful glowy eyeshadows. I reach for this way more than my Dior Amberdiamond and I think that is due to the fact that this is so versatile, not only in application, but in color. The two top colors are a warm golden brown and a warm pink, and the two bottom colors are a nice white gold and a cool taupe color. This means that this works with a variety of cheek combos. I use the top two when i want to look more golden (usually in summer with all of my peach blushes) and the bottom two when i want more of a cool toned glow (winter and spring with all of my plum and pink blushes).
The packaging is sturdy and it comes with a nice big mirror. the product itself has a nice consistency. It's not smooth like butter or anything but it's pretty soft and pigmented. this has lasted me a really long time, so overall i'd say it's definitely worth the three dollars.
going to pick myself a backup today!

Overall, this bronzing/highlighting powder is really great. It is a great dupe and cheaper alternative for Dior's Amber Diamond.
With all drugstore highlighters, I find you have to put it in an extra step for the lasting power a high-end highlighter would give. I put some of my MAC cream color base in pearl on top of my cheek bones, and then use the lightest shade in this quad. Although when I'm in a rush, I use this all over my cheeks and I'm good to go.
I gave the price only 3 stars because I paid $6 CAD for this, since its not available in Canada.

I paid $3 for this and it has lasted me for a few months now. I apply bronzer here and there if i'm going out somewhere special and i've found this is a decent bronzer that helps create a sun kissed face. I apply it across my cheeks and nose to get a subtle bronzed look that looks natural. For $3 i can't complain, it does it's job and lasts.

I am about an NC20-25 and just dyed my hair from blonde to brunette so I was looking for something to give my pale complexion a subtle touch of color. I have tried NARS laguna and almost every single PF bronzer out there. They are either too orangey or too muddy and even when applied with a light hand they make my face look obviously made up. I purchased this on a whim from target. It was $3. Its not a dramatic tan or bronze color so if that's what you are looking for you will be disappointed. I sweep this on with a large kabuki brush all over my t zone and use it to contour my cheeks. It gives a subtle warmth to my face and acts as a highlighter too. I was terrified of the glitter in the pan, but once applied it makes my skin look glowy and healthy, not glittery. It blurs my imperfections and makes my blemishes/acne scarring less obvious. Looks great in pictures too.

love, love, love this. very natural. When I put it on, I always get compliments. Otherwise, my skin looks pasty because I am so pale. This just makes me look pale, but healthy. The naturalness of the color is what i like best. No orange, just bronze.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Cool Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Blue
Im not very fund of this bronzer. There is way to much glitter in the palette - and it doesn't show up properly on my skin. I have to use a lot and look like a glitter bomb!
Right know I use it as a glittery blush, but I will never use it as a bronzer or for contouring. Not very good!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I was never really sure about bronzers so I picked up this one to try. I don't think I will be buy this one again. It is really shimmery and I don't think it works for my skin tone. This bronzer may be okay for the summer time when I have a tan, but I don't think it's a good everyday year round product. I love E.L.F. products,but this one is not my favorite.

I hated bronzers all these years.
I have pale skin (MAC NC 20/C1) and trying a bronzer always meant orangey/muddy/brownish skin for me.
I bought some drugstore ones and they never worked, so I was scared to pay a lot of money for a high-end bronzer. Basically, I gave up the thought of using bronzers.
But having quite pale skin, which looks sallow and never tans, I always long for a touch of healthy glow and natural colour.
I read about ELF and their bronzers, so I decided to give the bronzer a try, because they were cheap. I was determined to throw the bronzer away, if it shouldnīt work.
I had a hard time finding out, which bronzer to choose. The warm bronzer scared me and seemed too dark. The cool bronzer was not for me as Iīm definitely not cool toned. So I went for the golden bronzer, which scared me too, because it had shimmer particles and some reviewers claimed they looked like a disco ball wearing this. As it was the lightest of the three, I thought, Iīd give it a try.
I ordered from the ELF website and as I unpacked it, I was scared again, The shimmer, the colours and I thought, it would never ever work on my skin. Silently cursing myself for always trying and buying new beauty products, I dared to put the bronzer on.
Well, surprise! This actually was the bronzer I have always been looking for and it worked amazing on my skin.
I use a fluffy large ELF brush, swirl it around in the pan, slightly dust a little bit off the brush and apply it from the hairline on my forehead to my temples in form of a big C under my cheeks. I do this at every side of my face and then put the rest on the bridge of my nose.
Why did this work for me? My skin is sallow, pale, lacks glow and looks dull. It is combo-dehydrated skin with rather fine pores. So, the shimmery powder adds luminosity to my skin, which I naturally donīt have. I think a matte bronzer would never work on my skin as it would be too harsh and only increasing the already matte look of my skin. The shimmer particles actually make the bronzer appear softer and lighter on my skin. So I think, your skintype and skintone and the general condition of your skin decides, which of the ELF bronzers will work for you.
Actually, I simply havenīt ever tried to contour my face (I would fail miserably), because I have prominent cheekbones and a rather oval face, so I can never judge any bronzer for its contouring purposes. I want to make my face appear rounder and fuller, not slimmer.
I bought this 6 months ago and Iīm using this every day in wintertime. I havenīt used this as much in summertime, but will try it next summer.
I love this and will surely buy it again and again.

Actually I don't really like this bronzer! For the first it's too shimmery in my taste and also it doesn't do a lot. I need a lot before I can actually see a nice result. And it's also a very light bronzer, you can actually use some of the colours as highlighters and if you have darker skin, this might be a highlighter for you.
Don't really like this bronzer.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Red Eyes: Blue
This bronzer is amazing. I think I paid $3 for it. The only reason I didn't check buy again is because I don't love shimmery bronzers on myself. I'm very pale and prefer to use mattes to contour or add dimension to my face. This comes in a pan with four lovely colors and has great color payoff, a few swipes are very vibrant. I would definitely recommend this to someone who likes a shimmery, lightly bronzed glow.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily, Tan, Neutral Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I have a good tan all year long and this bronzer is more of a highlighter for me. It is very pretty and I LOVE the shimmer. Definitely not for contouring. I do not apply a lot of this all over my face because it can make me look orange, but using as ighlighter makes my face looks glowy and fresh. I would repurchase this because it is great and very cheap. A little goes a long way for me though, so mine will be lasting quite a while. The packaging is ok, seeing as the product is cheap I wasn't expecting a grat-quality package.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Curly, Medium Eyes: Hazel
i dont know wuh it is about this bronzer but i really like it...and thats a shock to me because i have shimmery product on my face but tis bronzer just gives me such a pretty suttle glow....its also gorgeous used as individuals eyeshadows so as long as they keep making it i will continue to buy it
Age: 30-35 Skin: Acne-prone, Olive, Warm Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Hazel
I use this as a highlighter and sometimes as eyeshadow, by blending the different shades for a more natural eye look. It makes my face too crazy shiny to use as a blush or bronzer.
