I like this bronzer, but it was HELLA expensive. Talk about half a buck. My packaging broke too so i have to wrap it in paper towel whenever i'm transporting it. It's lasted me two years. I don't recommend it due to it's insane price.

I bought this lovely bronzer on sale for about 8 bucks. I absolutely love the when products multi-task, so the fact that it comes with SPF 15 makes me all that much happier. This is also the first bronzer that has a distinct smell, a lovely smell, which reminds me of summer. For the first couple uses I thought the smell was just something I was either imagining or only able to smell. One day, when my hubby kissed me, he said I smelled like summer :) I also appreciate how thin the compact is, since it makes it practical to carry with you.

This is a great product, but it's not for anyone with tan or dark skin. I myself have very fair skin (NC15) and most bronzers I've tried have looked too muddy or too orange on me. This is perfect. I use a fluffy powder brush to apply it and it looks very natural. The new formula is also paraben-free. I would absolutely recommend this to someone with fair skin.

I don't have a lot of experience with bronzers, but I have tried a few. With summer right around the corner I wanted something that looked natural. Went on easily and stayed on throughout the day, I went into Sephora and they were having a sale on bronzers. It was only 10 bucks so I figured I would give it a try. I put a little bit on all over my face and I didn't see much of a difference. So put dipped my brush into the compact and made sure I got a lot more product on the brush and just buffed it all over my face including my jaw line and neck. It's a great product! It has a very natural look, which I like. I did not want a bronzer that was going to make me look orange and make my face look much darker then the rest of my body. I definitely recommend this product!

I love this bronzer! I have very fair skin and this bronzer does not make me look orange at all (as long as I use a light hand). I have been using it for awhile (almost everyday) and still have TONS left, so for the money, it is a GREAT deal! Will definitely be repurchasing.

I bought this hoping it would be a good dupe for NARS Laguna. I had watched a YT vid where the girl thought it seemed like a good dupe so I thought I'd try it out.

As a swatch, the colors are pretty comparable, so I picked it up. That's pretty much where the similarities end in my opinion. NARS Laguna is MUCH more pigmented. This features a more buildable color/depth. When using NARS Laguna, I usually just dip a fluffy brush in, shake off a little excess, and blend onto my cheeks, temples, and forehead. It has so much pigment to it that one or two swipes on the areas I want to be covered, are covered.

With this product, I had to really dig into the pan to get the adequate amount of color on my brush - and even then had to go back over it a few more times to build up the color. I am an NC25, for reference. I don't think this would show up very well on anyone much darker than my skintone. Sephora does offer two other shades of bronzer, which might be a better match for a lot of people.

The scent is something that people mentioned - I found that the scent was kind of like a mix between a very light baby powder or lotion scent, and the Cover Girl blush scent. It's not too noticeable, but if you're trying to smell it - you will!

This was $16 at Sephora, which is about as much as I'm willing to pay for a bronzer or blush. I do have a newfound love for NARS Laguna, but I just can't deal with the price tag!

After running out of my Clinique Sunkissed bronzer I realized that I was never 100% happy with it to begin with, so I decided to try something different. LORAC was too orange, Chanel was too dark, but this is perfect! It's mostly matte but has a slight shimmer which I love, particularly for nighttime. The texture is smooth and it blends easily. PLUS, it looks natural on my fair skin, which is a really hard thing for me to find. I will admit that it is similiar to the Clinique one I was using before, but it's less peachy and cheaper. I'm very impressed and will probably repurchase.
**UPDATE** I have found that this bronzer has a tendancy to look blotchy, particulary on fair skin such as mine. I've been applying with a blush brush but am thinking that if I switch to a bronzer brush (i.e. EcoTools Bamboo Bronzer Brush) that the application will be much more even. It's also a little darker than I thought initially. Pale skinned girls be careful!

LOVEE THIS BRONZER! I went to sephora looking for a good quality bronzer that wasn't too expensive! AND THIS IS WHAT I FOUND! I thought maybe this won't work that well considering this was the cheapest at Sephora. But i was wrong! This color looks great on me and for an overalll sunkissed look it makes me look naturally tan! The only thing that i don't like is the smell, it is a wierd baby kind of smell. But it is something that i can deal with.! Would definatly get this again!!

This is my go to all over fact bronzer. Has little shimmer to it so its great for all over face. It has a beautiful color that isn't too overbearing. I like to wear it under blush. its my go to bronzer for everyday use.
