I admit, I bought this because of the inovative product idea. Plus its smells great and the name is cool (like most of Benefit product). However, I stop using it after a few tries : The packaging is badly adapted to the product and the product is way too liquidly, hard to put on heavenly on the skin. Plus the overall effect is just not that great. Would not buy again and will never ever finish my bottle!

The name alone will grab you. I loved the exotic smell of this liquid bronzer, and I had visions of having a beautiful sheer but noticeable glow. My experience was far from this. I found the liquid to stain my skin very quickly, leaving me with little time to blend it into my cheeks. Because i am quite fair, i had to be careful when building it, to make sure i didnt have these brown spots on my face. I recommend other Benefit bronzers, like Hoola or maybe Dallas. These are easier to apply and are more worth your 28 dollars

I am surprised so there are so many bad reviews. I love this product. It is like benetint but a beautiful bronze colour. It is amazing on lips! I have olive skin, brown hair and brown eyes. All of the benefit stains look good on me and I like layering them. I love Glamazon with Posietint and the original benetint. It gives my lips a rich brown/plumy glow. I brush it on my nose, cheeks and lips. After it dries, I add either Posietint or Benetint. BEAUTIFUL!
**** Discontinued and parabens in this, so I don't use it now*****

Glamazon has a great name, and a cute leopard print bottle. It's easy to brush on a little color and blend quickly with fingertips. However, the brown has an orangey undertone on me which is why I switched to the more natural-looking Ben Nye Body Bronzing Tint (which is famous as the stuff Yul Brenner used when acting in The King and I). Theatrical makeup stores carry it. The Ben Nye tint is a lot cheaper; $4 for 2 ounces, and $9 for 8 ounces. It just doesn't have the cool packaging of Glamazon.

I adore this bronzer! It's so pretty on my fair skin. Gives me a great glow on the cheeks and forehead. I find the liquid bronzer very easy to blend. Even some on your lips for a bronzy, sheer look! I hope Benefit never discontinues this! I also think the packaging is adorable.

Best stuff ever...so natural looking...a cross between blush and bronzer that makes my pale skin glow and look so healthy. The sales lady showed me how to use it...take the little brush and draw Xs on the apples of your cheeks and blend/dab in a circular motion, then repeat till you have the desired effect. I usually draw 2-3 Xs in a row on each cheek blend well and quickly and repeat at least once, then i blend a line down the bridge of my nose and blend a dot on my chin and each temple and one large X on my forehead and then my whole face takes on a very natural summer glow. It smells like jasmine while you apply, which makes it extra special but the scent only lasts a minute.
This beats the pants off Benetint and can def be used year round.

This used to be my HG bronzer until I ran across NARS' Laguna. So, if I consider Laguna 5 lippies, any other bronzer can only be 4. With that said, when I was using this bronzer I LOVED it. I loved the longevity/staying power of this product on my face and I have to admit that no other bronzer has come even closely to this one in staying power. First trick with this bronzer is application. I don't recommend applying this bronzer a) to dry skin and b) with included brush and fingers. The trick with this bronzer, imho, is to pour a tiny bit (5-10 drops) into a small pot (tiny pot, like a bottle cap) at a time, and use cosmetic sponge (the least porous version) and aplly with the sponge and blend well. Otherwise, you end up streaked and with brown fingers. As I have used this product for about 2 years before using Laguna, I have become good at it, but the weird application method is unrealiable and does not make the product portable in purse. With that said, the product had such a long staying power on my face, that I could apply it in the morning and not have to worry about it all day. Again, this product is great, but it takes time and practice to learn how to apply. the colour looks very natural, but probably more on a naturally tanned or olive-y skin vs. very light complexion. IMHO, the product should be in a pen format with a shorter bristled brush on one end and a replaceable makeup sponge for blending on the other - that would make it more convenient and easily usable. The product has a long life as only little needs to be used, so it makes it fairly inexpensive to own.

I normally take a liking to Benefit's products, but this one really disappointed me. I've actually had it for about three years and I try to go back to it over and over again to see if my opinion changes, but it remains the same. The thing is, I've come to think that it doesn't look good on me because of the acne scars on my face. Whenever I use it, my acne scars (of which are pretty bad, I've been on Accutane twice, which didn't work, and found my HG of skin regimen's with Face Reality Skin Care, check out Facerealityskincare.com, they're amazing..based in San Leandro, CA) anyway, my acne scars become so amplified and it turns my face into a blotchy mess when I use this stuff. Also, I don't feel like it blends well either, maybe I'm just doing it wrong. It may not look good on me because of my acne scars though, so I don't know how it would look on someone with scar-free skin. And by the way, I no longer suffer from acne since I've been with Face Reality..if you have acne problems, I highly, highly, highly recommend them!

I didn't like Glamazon AT ALL when I first received it as gratis. I was put off by the scent (and I still am, to an extent), but it's a small price to pay for how TAN this can make your face. If you just put it on the high points of your face - cheek bones, temples, bridge of the nose - it gives a beautiful, sculpted, contoured look. My favorite way to use this product, however, is mixed with Moon/High Beam - gorgeous! Pat a little Hollywood Glo over it and finish with some Hoola and you've got an amazing look... best for girls who want a flawless, tan, complexion or for going out... try it, you'll LOVE it!! EDIT: Glamazon gave me what Benetint could not on my pigmented lips!! It didn't show up with a trace of brown, just a beautiful, rosy, natural looking pigment. Doesn't last ALL DAY on the lips, but certainly a few hours. Beautiful.

As some other reviewers have said, I am also on the fence about this product. On the one hand, it's one of the few bronzers that works for redheads (i.e., me) because it has a reddish undertone. But it's also really brown and hard to pass off as a bronzer. My compromise has been to use it in combination with Benefit for a more natural look. However, if that's what it takes to make this product work, it's just not worth it to me.

Okay, last weekend I had to attend the funeral of a person that only a close blood relationship would have induced me to participate in anything remotely resembling a mourning ceremony for. Trust me, Scrooge pre-ghosts. Unfortunately I HAD to go and I was nursing a bad upper respiratory infection that left me feeling and looking like a ghost myself. So I thought this might add a little color and leave me looking at least well-rested if not well. It's SO liquid it's very difficult to apply well, and when I applied it - nothing happened. It just didn't show up. So I reapplied again, and again. Still nothing. So I gave up and finished my makeup and went to the funeral. Of course, I'm a social cryer so I shed a few the minute they started playing "Amazing Grace." I did notice that a few people were looking at me oddly, but I put it down to the scarcity of tears in the room. Later, at a freshen up in the restroom, I discovered that Glamazon had put in a sudden - and very brown - appearance at some point. I had basically what looked to be a mudstreaked face. I thought about trying to blend in with the sweaty diggers at the cemetery, but forced myself to wash my face in the sink and return to my Night of the Living Dead look. I know it wasn't exactly a beauty contest, but I was a little upset that the deceased looked better than I did - although to be fair, he did have a professional MA. I was horribly embarrassed and thought I was the social leper of the year, until my mother came to my rescue. She walked over and raised her arms to hug me and bless her little heart, there from the armpit of her brand new Cherries In The Snow red mourning blazer hung a price tag, a fabric care tag, and a small plastic packet with an extra button and thread. God love her, she always could cheer me up.
So, to make a long story at least have a point. ( You were beginning to wonder, be honest.) This is expensive, extremely hard to apply due to the watery consistancy, takes a while to actually show up so you have to wait to see exactly what you've got, and may not be the most attractive bronzer for very pale skin - unless reddish-brown clay is flattering to you. And it is NOT waterproof, so it could prove problematic in a beach setting or on the Titanic. ( I know what you're thinking, but honestly, in the end there really was time for bronzer, now wasn't there?)

The packaging is very cute. This stuff is like Benetint but brown. It's an okay product, but definitely not a must have.

Although I'm a huge Benefit fanatic...I wanted to love this product & just couldn't. I've had Benefit MA's apply it to me as well as trying myself. I put 3 layers on & still did not show on me (currently I am at my winter shade of NW20). I'm not uber pale but I'm not dark by any means. I can not believe the poor pigmentation in this product. Definitely would not repurchase. I ended up returning mine.

Glamazon is a really interesting and fun product. First of all, i have to say that i'm quite dark. I was not looking for a tan in a bottle, as i am already quite tan. However, i was looking for something to "golden" up my skin tone a bit. This product didn't really do that completely, but it did provide a sort of warmth to my face.
It seems kind of red to me, but if you concentrate on the areas the sun would touch (nose, cheekbones, chin), it does seem to give a warm glow. I actually put a light bit of this product on those areas, then top with a finger-touch application of NARS Sertao. It does give me a bronze/gold finish, and i love that.
I would not repurchase because I doubt that i will run out...but to be honest, the consistency of this product is IDEAL. Reason being, i am oily skinned and the idea of putting creamy stuff on my face is just not a good one to me. I feel zero "product" on my face when i apply Glamazon...it's soooo light. It is the same exact consistency of Vincent Longo's Lip and Cheek gel stain...and if you have the color "neo aura", this is probably that exact formula!! It's amazing.
The package itself is cute, but not exactly "perfect" - reason being, it does tend to dribble down the little "nail polish brush" applicator. It can kind of drip easily due to the very watery consistency (it is just like water). But if you are careful, it's really no problem at all. Also, the package is beautiful! As far as aesthetic goes, it's adorable.
Overall, i love this product and found it to be worth buying, if anything because i have nothing else like it.

Better than other bronze colored tint I've tried (NARS...terrible) but harder to apply and wear than BeneTint. Leave this one to the pros.

I really love this. I have been a huge fan of Benetint, so I thought I would give this a try. I will say the affects are not as dramatic as Benetint, but I love to use Benetint and Glamazon together, so I looked bronzed with a little red flush in my cheeks. I have also mixed Glamazon with my face moisturizer to make my own tinted moisturizer, and it works out well.

This is not something I need or this is not something I can't live without.But this is really some cute product I like.Well I said I don't actually 'need' this because I'm a FFF so I have already-healty- looking skin.But this product gives me a layer and subtle glow before I apply my blush and bronzer.I use it on those days when I skip the foundation and would like to have a 'just-got back-from the beach' face.But I gotta warn you that it's not for everyone(as you might get from the previous reviews).I got the idea that most of the previous reviewers thought that this product is for pale skinned gals,but I do think the contrary.IMO,it's for warm complexions who can easily tanned like me.

This bronzer is interesting and I thought it would work well. It was okay, i didn't totally hate it and I did get a light brown color from it. It is kind of hard to blend evenly for your whole face. I won't buy this again because it is way to expensive and their are a lot better bronzers out there. If you do like this one try Ben Nye's liquid bronzer. It is only around $8 for 8oz and is almost the exact same thing.

This stuff sucks! I have very light skin and this did not show up at all.....I have been wanting to try this forever and had a feeling that I was not going to like it but I figured what the hell. At least I received it in a swap and didnt buy it. I feel the same way about Benetint, thak god I have a friend in England that makes her own (rose oil etc all natural) I get asked from the SA's at the amll where I purchased it from : )

Umm...I understand the mixed reviews, but I am on my third bottle (in over 3 years...it lasts forever, if you don't spill it)
This is not for the 5 minute face gal. If your face "eats" makeup like mine, and you know you will be away from a mirror all day...this is a lifesaver! Yes, it can spill, yes it can be hard to apply...but if I am going from work to dinner....think of it as the high maintainence to be low maintainence idea...you spend extra time in the morning...and leave your makeup bag at home! "of course I look this pretty after work and don't carry a suitcase/purse!"
