I love this! by just using the top part i get a gorgeous champagne glow, but when i swirl all of the colors together i get a light bronze glow. I have had it for a year and yet to hit pan.

I absolutely love the shimmer strips. I have the vegas and waikiki shimmer strips. I use them as eyeshadows and they look so beautiful applied to the lids. The give off a nice sheen that brightens and opens up the eyes. If you're someone that enjoys neutral looks, you'll like these.
As for using it as a bronzer, they're similar to the Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks, and if you use a light hand in conjunction with a skunk brush, it can add a soft and luminous glow to the face.
Packaging is crap, one of mine was difficult to open.

CRAPPPPP! I got this and used my fan brush to apply it and after the first time I used it nothing showed up but gold and did not blend. Then the strips were almost worn down and useless after one use. Waste of money!

Love this. This was my first Shimmer Strip and I bought Miami Strip after. This was a bit darker on my lighter skin, but I still used it ALL and the little bit that's left I use as shadow and it does NOT disappoint! I will use every last bit. I love this series. I use just a little on my cheeks and whatever little bit is left over on the brush I'll swipe on my forehead. It's like a highlighter/glow and for that I love it. It brightens you up just the right amount no matter where you put it. It's fantastic.

Great product. Blends very well and has great color for a broad range of skin tones. I do like using just the lighter strips for illuminating contour on some looks, and just swirling my brush all the strips for a bronzed glow.

I bought this on the recommendation of YouTuber pinksofoxy, who said it was a close dupe of the Dior Amber Diamond highlighter. It is a nice golden highlight or very lustrous bronzer. I use it as a highlighter only, because it does have such a sheen to it, and I tend to use the lighter colors because I'm quite pale even in summer. The effect is very pretty and not over the top by any means. It's not an every day look for me personally (a teacher) but I wouldn't say it's too obvious for most people to wear day-to-day. A little goes a long way and is a good value.

I bought this a while ago. I don't use highlighters most of the time, and when I do I have a BB Shimmerbrick in rose for pinks and an Inglot AMC Shine in a cream/white for other looks. I find that in comparison with BB, PF in vegas is a little more ostentatious rather than understated. Maybe it's just more glittery, but PF is still smooth and creates a bright sheen. I'm just not into the colour or look of the product. I don't want to look like a disco ball!
Haven't tried it on my eyes, I guess because I don't want too much glitter/shine on my eyes.

I have to say that I'm in love with this.. heard it was a dupe for Dior's Amber Diamond... I can't say if it is or not but it is the most gorgeous highlight! I agree that it's not a bronzer AT ALL, but I knew that because of the reviews and I was looking for a goldy highlight because I love the bronzed look and I have yellow undertones so white and pink can sometimes look weird on me.. I just use my tapered highlighting brush from Sigma and swipe lightly across all of the colors.. LIGHTLY. The first time I tried it, I did a heavy swipe and it was wayyy too much. I see very fine and small glitters, but it gives a wonderful sheen, though it may be much for other people.. it reminds me of Loreal's infallible eyeshadow in iced latte. A white gold sheen. Love this!!

I love this stuff. I got it on sale and was worried about it being to dark for my fair, pale skin, but it is actually nice. It does not give my cheeks that "dirty look" that some bronzers do which is a positive. It is a bit shimmery if you put too much, but with a light hand it gives you that "lit from within" look. I would re-purchase but I won't need too because there is SO much product. I will have it for life...Btw I love ALL physician's formula products and cannot recommend that brand highly enough.

This is the first "shimmer" product I've ever had. Not much of an adventurer when it comes to makeup. I also don't own a lot of makeup and I travel a lot, so I'm also about compact makeup packaging and (maybe?) makeup that can do double-duty. So I really like this shimmer strip because I can use it as bronzer, a blush, a highlighter and eye shadow. I'm going on a cruise soon, so it will be perfect for everything but the club (where I'll be wearing my more dramatic MAC eyeshadows). In terms of wearing this for professional use, I think it is appropriate. It's shimmery, but not over the top. It gives a healthy glow, I'd say.

I have been using this eyeshadow for years and love it so much! It's so pretty and really brightens up your eyes. OH and it literally lasts all day! I have yet to try it as a blush..but this will forever be in my beauty box as my favorite eyeshadow ever..nothing compares!

I bought this too use as blush. I didn't like it. It made my cheeks look weird and orange and caked on even though I didn't cake it on. But you can use it as a bronzer, blush, or eyeshadow. I like the top two colors as eyeshadows, so it wasn't a complete waste.

This is Gorgeous in Vegas strip for light/med Girls ..I am in love with this as a highlighter middle of the nose ,above my blush (cheekbones) .and middle of my forehead.This is really great.

I'm NC 25 for comparison and i use the lighter half of this product for highlight. The shimmers are fine and the warm tones look very natural giving a healthy glow. The packaging however is not durable - cover has broken off within a year and didn't even reach for it daily! Haven't even noticed a dip in the product and I've had it for maybe 2 years. I alternate this highlighter with a few others and now i keep at work for touchups.
I use small fluffy brushes like elf's blush brush or Sigma's small tapered brush (egg shaped). I feel F109 brushes would be too densed and loosely packed bristles are best for this.
Overall a very good highlighter, comparable to many highend powder highlighers.

I love this product. It has a lot of uses. You can sweep it across the tops of your cheek bones, bridge of your nose, inner corners of your eyes and on your brow bones as a highlighter. It's also great as eyeshadow. For days I don't want to look like I'm wearing a ton of makeup, I'll use the second lightest shade on my eyelids and the darkest shade in my crease. It adds dimension and wakes up my eyes.

I really wanted to like this after reading the stellar reviews, especially that it compares to Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Bricks. It's way too shimmery on me and does not look natural at all on my skin tone, NC20-25. I couldn't resist trying it since it was on sale at CVS, but I am going to return it and try another color.

I use this shimmer strip as a highlighter along my cheekbones. It's super frosty looking in the pan but applies sheerer. I don't really like it as shadow cause I have too many similiar shadow shades that are pigmented and apply smoother. I like it and wear it about once a week, I own lot's of highlighter's but would say this is the best drugstore one.

I love these so much! The colors they bring are so pretty and so versatile. You can use these as a bronzer, highlighter, eyeshadow, lip gloss, etc. These are definitely comparable to Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks and a fraction of the price. They are pricey for a drugstore brand but I think it is worth it since you can use it in so many ways. These are a MUST HAVE for anyone!

This a very good drugstore item.
As eyeshadows the colors are greatly pigmented and soooo mac dupeable it's ridiculous. They are frosty for sure, but never glittery and apply a lot better than you might think at first glance.
As a bronzer it is really nice because you can customize to your skin shade, however it is very shimmery so if you use bronzer as a contour color I wouldn't recommend it.
