This is my second-favorite bronzer, after Guerlain's Terracotta 4 seasons in 00 Nude. I bought this to replace the Guerlain, as I was panning that unevenly due to favoring two of the quadrants more than others, and the weird pannage caused it to break. In my opinion, the Shiseido in 1 is slightly inferior to the lighter flesh tone shades in the Guerlain compact (I never made much use of the extremely sheer blush quadrant or the slightly orangey darker quadrant), But it's better than 1/2 of the Guerlain compact. Since the Guerlain will break if you only use half of it, the Shiseido in 1 Light is a less frustrating buy. It's sheer and diaphanous, just like Shiseido eyeshadows. Applied with a soft, fluffy brush, you're getting a nice, natural wash of healthy color that's difficult to overdo. That's all I ask for in a bronzer, and it's quite reasonably priced when compared with Guerlain.

finally a bronzer that looks very natural on my skin, no oranginess, no pearly sheen, just soft and smooth and perfect... gotta love it.

Shiseido is not a brand that is known for bronzers, I was surprised to know that shiseido had them! After swatching and receiving a bronzer(medium) as a gift of purchase, I'm also impressed with the results.Very pigmented and so smooth. I just needed to softly graze my brush Over the product. It blends seamlessly into the skin and it's completely natural looking;not orange or muddy looking.This bronzer is completely matte. In MAC I am nc40-42. Getting into colder months I lighten up and even though Medium is only somewhat darker than me and warmer, I wouldn't use this as a contour but rather as an complexion warmer/all over bronzer to keep me from looking dead. I am more drawn to the darker shades as they would suit me better. If you are fair, lighter skin, you will love this as it has amazing lighter options. This bronzer is so underrated and not talked about! Will buy!

Love! I'm around NC20 right now, but I don't really have a yellow undertone. It's more light olive with some pink mixed in. I use shade 1 Light, and it's the perfect color to warm up my skin. It doesn't turn muddy, but it can be a bit orange-ish if too much is applied. It does have fine shimmer, but it's not glittery or too sparkly. It isn't fragranced, which is a plus. The brush it comes with picks up a lot of product, so I prefer to use a duo-fiber stippling brush. Best of all, it doesn't break me out.

I love this! I have been using this probably for a month now. I probably started using bronzers in the past year or so. I'm still testing out a few others but this is what I use on a everyday basis. I have this in the shade Light and it compliments my fair skin. Extremely easy to apply since it's very blendable. It looks very natural on and gives me a nice contoured look without it looking dirty. It applies on matte but if you swatch it with your finger or look at it in the pan, there's a slight hint of shimmer. I think this bronzer suits my skin tone the most out of all the ones I tried.

Yet another bronzer that I've added to my collection. Shiseido had a gwp and I scooped up the bronzer in medium (no. 2) and it gives me a nice, healthy sun kissed glow. It does have slight shimmer but it's not noticeable when I apply it. The colour is a natural believable tan shade without being orange. I prefer this over the much hyped NARS Laguna which I find a bit too brown and kind of flat. The Shiseido bronzer has more depth in the colour and doesn't give a muddy look. If you're looking for a bronzer with a hint of shimmer, this one is worth trying.

One of the only natural looking bronzers I have ever found. I love this, just makes my skin look healthy and slightly glowing. I'll repurchase for sure.

I think I found my HG of bronzers! My skintone is light with soft yellow undertones (MAC NC20/Shiseido I20) and I chose "1 Light Dawn" from Sephora.com. The color is a believable tan shade on me with no orange/red tones. It goes on sheerly and builds slowly to your desired "tan-ness" and it has a soft matte finish with no sparkles. And most importantly, no breakouts, unlike the horrid NARS Laguna. The bronzer is housed in a sleek and simple deep compact with a mirror. It comes with a small brush which is set in a reusable plastic dish which then sits on top of the powder bronzer. When I first took out the brush and plastic dish I thought I was given a used product because it appeared that there was barely any product at the bottom of the case! It's just that the case is super deep to accommodate the brush so it looks like there is very little product in relation. There's actually a full 12 g / .42 oz of product.
