Love this bronzer more than my guerlain one or Dior. It gives a reddish bronze look which I like when I’m tan. I have to be careful to not overdo it (I’m nc30) as it’s very pigmented. It’s the most...

Fantastic bronzer! This is my 2nd time getting this bronzer & I love it even more! It goes on so well. There's no product 'flying around' like other bronzers that 'powder' profusely when applied....

I have mixed feelings about this bronzer. It is true that the sparkles are so refined that they do not show up of your face (thank the lord). However, my biggest struggle has been its blendability?...

Made a second purchase of this bronzer then realized that it gives a red tone to the skin. I saw that a YouTuber said the same thing. Not sure if it's the new formula or I only realized it this...

After completely going through my MAC's Pro Longwear Bronzer "Nude on Board", I picked this one up and decided to give it a try. I typically wear an NC15/NC20, and while this is a pretty dark,...

"Refined Golden" seems to be re-promoted for every summer collection. I bought this because the MAC mua recommended this for my NC42 skin tone. I thought it would be too dark but it seems to be...

Pretty on my fair skin tone, not orangey at all, slight shimmer but not in a drag queen type of way. Love this bronzer.

I hated this bronzer. I usually wear Laguna by Nars but didn't wanna spend $30 on a bronzer, and b/c I'm a Mac Pro member I decided to go a little cheaper just this once. I felt this just became...
