I have the lightest shade but I don't really use it. I can't contour with it because of the sparkle and I can't use it on my cheeks or all over my face because it makes my skin look even more oily and shiny in a fake way, sooo what's the point? I don't really get it, and I don't use a ton of it. I believe contouring with a matte bronzer and highlighting with a cream highlighter does the trick in a more natural and sophisticated way.
Well maybe I should try to dust some on my shoulders or legs during the summer but I don't think it's a worth having product- at least for me...

I've had my pot for FOREVER and the beads are still big and don't look like they've been heavily used. I like using this with a big fluffy kabuki to dust over my neck/chest/shoulder area during the Summertime for a warm bronzed glow. It does have shimmer so I don't use it too often for my face. It can look a muddy if your not sure on how to correctly apply it so best to work in layers to build up the colour you want. Doesn't look orange provided you use the right amount.

I really do love this bronzer, as it gives me a nice glow, unlike other bronzers which make me look too orange or dirty. And since i have fair skin, i find that looking for the perfect bronzer is more difficult. However, like mentioned in the other reviews, the beads do tend to spill if your not careful.

This Bronzer is GOOD! i mean really...but the only problem is its pretty expensive..but you get for what you pay right? it gives you a natural glow..i use this to contour and sometimes i just slap it all over my face..i doesn't make my face look orange unlike other bronzers :) will repurchase :)

I've been using this product for years and I absolutely love it! I dust it on my cheeks and sometimes all over my face, but I keep it natural-looking. If I go out at night somewhere, I also dust it on my chest, arms, legs, etc. (It shows up lovely in photographs as well.)
The only thing that sucks is when you knock it off your shelf and all the beads scatter everywhere. This has happened, and yes I picked up each individual bead and put it back because I love it that much. : )

I received this as a gift and really wanted to love it, but couldn't. Many of the other reviews comment on the subtlety of this bronzer. I feel like this bronzer is too subtle to make a difference on my pale NW20 skin. I've tried various brushes and techniques and I never feel like I get a subtle glow.
I can tell I've been using the product only because there are only half the beads there were before. If you don't like looking overly bronzed and dirty, you will not have an issue as the color payoff is so poor.

Snagged this at the 3 for $30 when regular price is $21. Beautiful bronzer and gives a warm and natural glow. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS STUFF!!

This is a fun product I picked up at a BS 3 for $30 sale. I wasn't expecting to buy it so I was very pleasantly surprised to add it to my makeup boxes. Just a light dusting of the brish deposits a soft warm glow around my face. I also like that the beads are various hues of bronze so it makes the look more natural.
I've been using this lightly over my forhead, nose and chin in the winter, btu I can see it creating a beautiful bronzed look in the summer when you want a more golden look.
I have not tried the sponge that it comes with because I imagine it would streak and leave too much colour. But the brush that's designed for it is perfect.
Finally, the little beads ARE a problem and not the most practical bronzer to stick in your purse on-the-go so I took of a lipstick for that. Just be careful when you're using it and maybe don't apply it over the sink or near your toilet!!

Great bronzer - I've had this for around 2 years and am nowhere near running out. Like other reviewers have mentioned, the only problem is that the beads are easy to spill out if the jar! Also, the small sponge that comes with the jar is useless. However, the bronzer itself is subtle and pretty, and is suitable to use over your whole face for a little bit of extra colour, even during the day.

I've been using this bronzer for 2 years and I love it. I don't even need blush any more. This is enough for my day. It creates a very natural glowing look for me. I'm Asian in the UK and have fair skin with pink tone.
I don't know when I will have to buy a new one because it lasts for months...no, for yearsss

I have medium olive skin. There are two shades, i use the darker one. This is a great very natural looking bronzer that applies easily. I find you can add colour easily and will last forever. I use a large brush to apply all over.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Normal Hair: Blond Eyes: Hazel
I love this bronzer! it helps get tht instant dressed up look, and really highlights cheekbones well.. the beads will last forever, but i dropped half of mine in the sink, so i'll probably have to buy it again soon..
i just find the little spongy thing that came with it to apply it is not very good, it kinda makes blotches so i would recommend using a large brush to apply it

my HG! <3 bronzing beads, and I've been using them for years! :) I have it in the darker shade as well... and like some of the other reviewers, I use it over my chest, shoulders & arms. Such a nice hint of colour, and never looks unnatural. And yes, the product lasts forever! unless you're like me, and drop the entire opened jar in the toilet! lol how depressing... lol. Anyway, yes, i love it! definitely a good buy, and will continue to repurchase!

I am really getting more and more impressed by Body Shop's makeup line. Not all their makeup products are great, but the good ones are really good. Their Bronzing Beads is one of them. I have it in the darker shade and it is fantastic to highlight already tanned skin. The colour is so good that I apply it on my chest, collar bones, arms and even legs. The beads are very compact so the jar lasts and lasts. I also use it quite light handed when I'm pale in the winter, it is one of the best bronzers I have.

PROs: Brilliant colour and effect, smooth and can double as a blush
CONs: Not the best for oily skin
I'd buy it again, but the jar lasts forever!

I use this to contour and warm up my face. It comes in 2 colours pink and the more bronzy version (I have this one). If u have tanned skin definitely get the bronzy one because the pink version won't show up. The bronze product will work well on those of you with fairer skin too! This product lasts forever and unless you drop the beads it will seriously last you a lifetime! A great product!!

This product lasts forever! I had mine years ago and I still have til now. It's not too shimmery, I use it for contouring. It also lasts.

I got these in the buff shade and eventhough I kind of got scared off by the darker shade (as they only have two shades here where I'm located), I should have gotten the darker shade as "buff" rarely showed up on my NC30 skin. But it did impart a really really slight flushy glowiness which surprisingly, lasted the whole day! But I must say it did look a bit oily towards the end of the workday when I did not retouch my powder but over all, I do like the product and will buy again, but the darker shade this time.

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet!! This is one of my favourite bronzers-a great colour you can really build up. I find it is a true brown on me-no yellow or orange tones. It does have quite a bit of shimmer in it-but don't be too alarmed if you haven't tried it-the shimmer is actually quite subtle and fine for every day use.
The packaging is fine-but when you have a new container be very careful as the beads can spill our easily.
This bronzer cost me NZ$45 which is an absolute bargain considering it lasted me over two and a half years of regular use. I've only just brought a second one recently.

I liked this bronzer, and it's growing on to me to love it, it can be a little to orangey. if you apply to much, i learned that the hard way!! it is a very deep shimmer.
it's a good product overall great staying power. and i really like how it softly goes on, i would use a light han with thris one, and a medium sized fluff brush.
Overall..good product..Color is nice.But could be bette
