I have Soleil and Solstice, and stocked up on a few pans before these got axed by Covergirl. However, these are still sold by CG as their "Cheekers" bronzers (compare the shades and ingredients, it's the same product). I typically prefer matte bronzers, but when I want some shimmer, these are my go to bronzers. Soleil is a warm golden tan with shimmer, and Solstice is a cool toned shade with shimmer. I like to use these mainly as blushes during the summer (I love to use bronzer as my blush), because the shimmer would be too much for the entire face. The sturdy packaging makes it great for travel, and I actually like the Noxzema scent that most CG products have. These really last all day too! I can't understand why CG chose to sell the tiny, inconvenient cheekers size bronzer, but no longer makes this one...

I have had this in my drawer for so long, like 5 years. I'm pretty sure it's discontinued now, as this looks like Covergirl packaging that has long been replaced by new stuff. Anyways, it's a nice bronzer. It gives a pretty glow for the price. It's a little too dark for me but I'm really pale. I sometimes use it on my darker skinned friends when doing their makeup and it looks pretty. I don't love it and I won't repurchase when I run out but it's still a good bronzer.

GLITTER! I hate this bronzer. I have tried every drugstore bronzer and normally stuck to this one becuase of the price and it wasn't very dark so that's two plusses but oh man the glitter/shimmer that is in this is awful. I finally gave in and bought the way expensive NARS Laguna and will never go back. Save up for a nice bronzer, drugstores are all glitter.

I was initially concerned that this bronzer was too orange to suit my skin tone but it works wonderfully to give my face a healthy glow! I use it all over my face and especially under my cheekbones. It is slightly shimmery but this is not very noticeable - so don't worry! The brush that comes with it is alright; not of excellent quality. However, this bronzer blends so well that probably any brush will do in terms of blending. Grabbed this from the clearance bin and highly reccommend it to those looking for an inexpensive easy-wear bronzer :)

I LOVE this bronzer, and now thanks to dumb CG discontinuing it, I have to buy it on eBay! The Cheekers bronzer in "golden tan" is the same exact product (shade and ingredients are identical I compared them), but the cheekers is too small, and it's inconvenient. This nice larger pan, is easier to sweep my fluffy brush across and get enough product so I can apply it quickly and easily. It's golden enough to enhance my tan skin, but not too dark like most bronzers, making it a good option for lighter skintones. The subtle sheen (not sparkle) this provides makes skin look radiant and healthy. Also, one of the very few that does not break me out. Love it! Wish CG would bring it back!

I bought this last year when I was on school camp in Tasmania. My friend and I bought the same colour, 'Soleil'.
Personally, I really like this bronzer on me, but I find I have to blend it well because it can look a little orangey if I accidentally apply too much.
I have warm undertones to my skin and it compliments my skin well. I think its a really good bronzer to use for contouring and I like the face that it catches the light. Unfortunatley, the shimmer settles into my pores a little too much
I really hate the smell of all Covergirl products, but especially this one! I just hate it, I can't even really explain the smell.
The compact is pretty good to use on the go because it's no mess and has a mirror.

I bought this stuff as a quick fix because I ran out of my beloved Body Shop Bronzing Beads, and thought this might give a similar look. WRONG. Bronzing beads do have a little bit of shimmer to them, but the shimmer from this bronzer is WAY over the top.. it also seems to have some sort of multi-coloured glitter to it or something. Blech.
However, I will say that I was wearing it one day when my friend came over and she immediately commented on it. So, I gave it to her a couple weeks later. She really likes it, but I found it to leave me a funny shade of orange-ish, way too shimmery, and it was really hard to blend! Won't repurchase. I gave it a 2 because a) i actually liked the packaging, and b) my friend liked it... so i guess some people have positive results... just not me :(

Not only the packaging is very ugly but the bronzer is very orange & fake.
Oh.. & it break out on me badly after a few hours. I hardly get breakouts & i don't have sensitive skin either.
I regret buying this & I'm never going to buy CG products ever again..

This bronzer looks OK if you apply it sparingly, but if you add a reasonable amount (for any other bronzer) you will look orange. The packaging is ok. Personally I don't like the shimmer, as it's obvious that you are wearing make up and I don't like that. I will, however dust my collar bone/shoulders with this stuff and it does look nice. Overall, I am sticking with my HG physician's formula baked matte pyramid bronzer.

Smells bad, fake orange color, and too shimmery. The only good use I have found from this is to crumble it up and put it in body lotion for a bronze shimmer lotion.

Wow this stuff smells funky! The color is a tawny color full of shimmers. When I have this bronzer on and catch the light I look like I applied glitter like crazy. Definitely don't recommed it!

Oh dear... This turns you orange if you put more than a little bit on. Turned me orange and very very sparkly.I don't know whether to say sparkly or shimmery. It smells a little funky, also.
However, it didn't make me break out, the packaging holds up but I don't like strip-style bronzers or blushes. Plus the brush is dinky, replace it.
Overall, not a product I really enjoyed and you can really get better stuff for the money (I think I paid 7-8 bucks for this stuff) like rimmel natural bronzer.

First off, whyyyy do CG products STILL contain parabens?
Secondly, I hate CG. Overrated and cheap. Hyped up. The only drugstore brand you can really depend on is Maybelline.
This bronzer is ok. Nice color, shimmery as in metallic, not glittery. Too shimmery though, cant really wear it anywhere but the cheeks. I hate packages like this for blush or bronzer. You cant use a big fluffy brush and swirl it around. I prefer round compacts, not a rectangle strip of bronzer. All in all, a decent bronzer for the $, but the parabens still confuse me. CG needs to wake up.

i, personally, LOVE this bronzer. I've used alot of different bronzers and since i have light skin, they always looked either too orange or too glittery on me. this bronzer is a little shimmery, but it looks more glowy thean glittery. and even though it does sorta smell funny, once its actually on your face, you cant smell it. but dont use the brush. the brush sucks, thats the only fault.

I started using this bronzer because my mom bought it for me from Walgreens. It seemed okay at first, but then I started to really realize how fake & shimmery it was. The brush that comes with it is also awful- it's stiff and impossible to actually put the bronzer on nicely. I had to get my own brozer brush to apply it. It's so unnatural and looks almost bad on my skin. I wouldn't buy this again, it will turn you orange.

Yuck! Why do all companies think bronzers have to be super shiny? My skin does not turn magically shiny when I get tan, it just turns tan!!!!! blah! this bronzer is the perfect light bronze color for my NC 20 skin, but it is soooooo shiny it is unwearable as anything but a highlighter on cheekbones and chest. I even put a matte powder over it but that did not dull down the shine. Bronzers shouldn't be so dang shiny!!! we put them on our nose, chin, forhead....places you don't want to have a ton of greasy-looking shine. I gave this 2 lippies because it is a good color, but the only places I could ever use it would be my cheekbones and collarbone.

Ooh i like this, nice and natural on my skin. Shimmer is subtle,unlike my too faced snow bunny...the brush is a piece of crap..i use a little kabuki brush to blend. very nice!

I used this bronzer for a few months and i'd say it was sub par at best. There are definitely better bronzer's out there for the same price or maybe even less. I think the bronze this left me was pretty fake looking. I like victoria's secret bare bronzer a lot better and I think it cost around the same. I think the bronze this left me was pretty fake looking.

This is ok, the colour was nice and natural..but it really made me break out. I put a bit on my cheeks and neck and on my chest and it made me break out like crazy the next day.
Def. will not repurchase.

This is one of the few bronzers I can do. Others bronzers made me look fake, greasy, or too shimmery. I apply it with a baby kabuki beacause the brush it comes with is totally useless. I wish CG would cut out the smell that there blushes and bronzers have. It is great d/s find if you are looking for something natural looking. Me: PPP (neutral)undertones, brown eyes and auburn hair with golden copper highlights for summer.
