Really like this bronzer. It is very natural. I wanted something that wasn't glittery and sparkly, and this is the best one I could find.

This is one of my favorite bronzers! I love the color, the application is smooth and even. I really like how natural it makes your skin look.

I am through with my experimenting phase. This bronzer, hands down, is my favorite!!! I get such a beautiful tanned look on my face and I even use it for contouring because I can layer it on without looking unnatural or caked on. The MATTE finish is also a plus. It doesn't look like I have dirt on my face and it doesn't make me look like a discoball.

Before I used the BB bronzer, or the Guerlains, CDs, even my old Stila, and many others I had this bronzer... at the time I felt that it was too light (shade 1) and did little to show on my skin. This was about 3 years ago.
Today, it seems my skin is lighter still and this blusher which I am now using again is perfect for my paler skin (maybe the lightening is working.. maybe I am sick..lol). In all cases, this is a smooth and easy to apply bronzer. Bronzers can be tricky -- if they are too opaque they will muddy up your look. If they are too orange or pink, you will not look bronzed but over cooked.
In all honesty, I prefer sheerer bronzers which can be built up to whatever look I want or need.
This is a great bronzer and I would recommend to those who like sheerer bronzers.

I really enjoy this product, perhaps more than my former favorite matte bronzer. I wear Matte Bronze, not Matte Bronze Light. LM's bronzer gives a different effect than my other current favorite, Illamasqua Glint/Burnish, which is for more shimmery and golden looks, and more pigmented. This is an entirely different formula. I wear this as a nude blush on my light to medium yellow-olive skin, since I don't like the colors in her regular line-up of blushes. I think Laura Mercier revamped her blushes and bronzers, as I find the formula quite excellent. Was never a fan of LM anything, but may now be a bit more open. Better than BB bronzers IMO.

Since this matches my skin tone and is really a powder I use it as my base. It gives a nice, clean fresh look. I was very pleased with this

I have the light one. I am a NC/NW 20 and this is an excellent product for winter or for a more subtle effect. In summer I mainly use it on my forehead and chin, where I don't want a very bronze look. It is finely milled and just adds a hint of colour. However it is buildable if you want more intensity. Pale girls will probably like this better than ones with darker skin.

I really like this bronzer. I guess when you are 50 and have 8 grandchildren, you like your look to be subtle. But, I did get this because of a 20 something at work. I have noticed that in my office, which is not that conservative, that the more mature ladies where much more makeup than the younger ladies. In fact, I notice that most of the younger ladies wear no makeup at all and that some of the more mature ladies can sometimes look too made up. Anyway, I did compliment a young gals makeup and she told me that she uses this bronzer. So, I bought it and love it. I don't like shimmer and I don't like to look like I am wearing bronzer. This is very subtle, but nice. My daughter, who is honest about how my makeup looks complimented me on my face before she knew what I was wearing. So, it passed the daughter test and I will repurchase it as one of her birthday presents.

Terrible (I purchased this in Light). I'm throwing it away after a couple weeks. I was searching and searching for a bronzer that wouldn't appear orange or too dark on my very pale skin, and this didn't even show up at all! I use the Laura Mercier bronzer brush which I adore, and no matter what I do (and I experimented in all types of light) it did not show on my face at all. I finally found Clinique's True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer in Sunkissed and at half the price, it is exactly what I'm looking for.

I'm normally a Mercier fan, but I really don't like this product. It makes my face look dirty, not bronzed, and seems to give a patchy appearance. I have fair but warm-toned skin, and the lighter version just doesn't do much, whereas a darker shade gives the aforementioned grubby appearance. So my conclusion is LM bronzer just doesn't work for me. It might be ok on darker skin.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily, Olive, Warm Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Ive tried just about every bronzer on the market. im not kidding ive tested out at least 30, and this has got to be in the bottom 5 which is surprising because cheaper brands actually have nicer bronzers than this. i assumed sincei have oily skin i should try this because it says matte, its not matte at all its full of shimmer. the color is so blahhhh and boring greyish brown. its not bronze, golden, nothing. its just a bland brownish gray color. it does nothing to add color to the face, and makes you actually look dull instead of doing the opposite which is the purpose of bronzers. dont waste your money on this crap....

I purchased this in 'light', and it's been a good bronzer (I've never used one before). Nice to augment color from the sun, and especially when I haven't gotten much sun.

This is yet another underwhelming (I hesitate to call it crappy but it can be called that too) product from Laura Mercier. Now I've got enough bronzer to last me until the next century and I already have a couple of fantastic standbys but I'm a product junkie so of course I have to keep looking for something that's even better. I got the medium Matte Bronzer, which was a big mistake. Even on my tanned skin (NC 25ish), the bronzer was still too dark and made me look dirty instead of sun-kissed. Oh, and this bronzer isn't a true matte at all. It's not shiny but there is still visible shimmer. This doesn't bother me but don't call something "matte" if it's not matte. Fragrance haters and those with sensitive skin beware: Matte Bronzer is loaded with fragrance. Don't bother wasting your money since Laura
Mercier is by no means cheap. Physician's Formula bronzers are superior by a mile and come in, what, over a dozen different variations and formulas? I promptly returned this and have now sworn off all Laura Mercier forever. I really mean it this time too.

I didn't think this bronzer was anything special. I have light, so maybe I needed a darker color? I'll probably try something else, or try a darker color.

No better then any drugstore brand. Purchased the light. Not bad, but nothing great.

First off, I must concede what other reviewers have noted - this is NOT a matte bronzer. There is some shimmer in it, less than most bronzers, but still present. It doesn't look that shimmery on but it's still misnamed. I'm stick to my beloved Armani #3 bronzer or Smashbox Hue for a completely matte bronzing.
This gives me a natural brown tan (with a very slight pink tinge) that isn't orange or rosy or gold -just a realistic sun-browned look that still frames and lights up my face without looking muddy. But I have other bronzers I like much better; this just isn't spectacular. It looks very dark in the pan but goes on quite naturally. NC30-35.

I'm not as impressed by this as I thought I'd be, given all the raves on the makeup board. It is, however, the only matte bronzer I have right now, so with blending (on top of loose powder), I'm learning to make it work. For the price, I don't think I'd buy this again, but look for something else that is more in the color I was *hoping* this would be. (It is my fault for buying online and not testing first, but raves + only one color LM matte bronzer = only one choice for me!) I think I'll try Lancome's big ol' disc of bronzer next. I think this would work best on medium complected gals, and seems more of a cool bronze than a warm bronze.

I have tried many bronzers and this is my favorite so far. Great color and nice texture. I am pretty fair skin and it doesn't make my skin look "muddy".

I started out really liking this bronzing powder - but the more I use it the more shimmer I see. i thought this was supposed to be a "matte" bronzer. I see a little too much shimmer for my liking. Granted - not as much shimmer as a typical bronzer, but enough shimmer that I don't think it should be called matte.

I love this bronzer because the texture is so soft and give me a natural bronzy look.
