This is my favorite bronzing powder (I use #3). I'm fair with pink undertones and it gives me the perfect bronzed look, as if I just came back from a day at the beach. It lasted 2 years for me, using it everyday, so it's really worth its price. Also, you can buy the refills which is a good thing. The case it comes in is ok (brown with a golden signature).

I think that this stuff is terrific. You only need to use a small amount and it covers a large area. So, it may be more expensive but it lasts forever.Also, I love that it comes in a variety of shades so that you can choose which one works best for you. I use No. 1 as a blush for a natural, healthy, sun-kissed glow. I highly recommend this product.

This one is a good bronzer with a nice texture and a nice colour, but just not realistic enough with a touch too much orange. I have my favourite which is NARS Laguna and nothing beats the true brown colour it gives! I loved Guerlain before trying NARS and nothing would make me go back to Guerlain! It still gets 4 for good quality.

Wonderful product! Expensive though. I have this in #3. It gives me a beautiful natural glow. I use this as an eyeshadow and blush. Doesn't look orangy. I look more golden than anything else.

Since it's the dead of winter, I figured a light dusting of bronzer might perk me up. I broke down and invested in Guerlain's Moisturizing Bronzing powder in #1 and I love it. All the other bronzers I tried looked silly on my fair/medium skin (with rosy cheeks). This color helps combat the pink in my cheeks and looks really nice. And the price isn't so bad ($32.50) when you consider how long it will last.

This has to be the best bronzing powder on the market. Anytime I've ever tried to cheap out and get a substitute I'd wind up looking orange. Always sorry afterward. Use it lightly and it'll give a wonderful bronze sheen to your skin.

I bought this based on it's review in InStyle as the best bronzer, combined with the feedback here, and it's the truth, I love it! I've been using Bobbi Brown's bronzing stick in medium forever, but just felt like all of the tugging to get it to blend couldn't be good, even though I love the color and effect. This powder is awesome! Besides all of the great things it's supposedly doing for your skin, it's a beautiful color (I got #3, and I'm a PPP w/freckles, so don't go any lighter unless you're looking for a blush), and the color is sheer, blendable, and buildable, and extremely natural looking. My hubby said I looked like a hottie and wondered what I'd done =) (nice to hear after giving birth to his child a few months back and not feeling like I look my best yet!).

I've got this in #3. I think this colour looks the most natural. If I put on just a little bit it gives me a very healthy skin tone. But usually I only use this as a blush and for face contours -> looks great on photos. It also lasts very long, you really need only a little bit even if you go for a very dark look and it's very easy to blend. I'd buy this again if I'll ever run out of this...

This is my stand-by winter bronzer. When I am my palest PPP (NC15) self, this bronzer goes on the most naturally of all the bronzer I own. The no.1 is light enough that I can just dust it on without being super careful, and I still won't look like a brick. This was my first bronzer, and is still a favorite. I would just like a little more modern packaging, and maybe a nice brush with it for the price.

I was pretty sure I was going to buy this bronzer due to the positive comments on this board - and after trying it at the counter I was definitely sold. Very real, sheer color - there are 4 shades which makes it easy to find a match. I bought #1, the lightest. There is just a barely there hint of shimmer. The amount of shimmer differs in each shade, with #2 having the most - still it isn't garish. This is going to be my first year of not sun baking my face, and I'm thrilled to know I'll be able to look sun-glowed without the sun damage. Gave it 5 stars even though it doesn't come with a brush - why? - you definitely need a good round soft brush for best application. Guess who bought a lovely retractable Guerlain brush? My splurge for the month!
