Silky Matte Bronzing Powder by Milani

"Milani is a great cosmetic brand! I've always used their eyeliners but this is my first time using the Silky Matte Bronzing Powder. I absolutely love it! It's very smooth and has a silky texture. I also love it because it doesn't have a perfume fragrance to it which is a plus in my book. I highly recommend it to all the beauty fashionistas who love great quality makeup with a bargain price!

Bright Idea Illuminating Stick by NYX Professional Makeup

"I came across this product in a new display at Ulta. I wasn't really looking for a cream highlighter (actually I was looking for a cream contour) but I hadn't heard anything about this product so I decided to swatch it with the tester. OH WOW, doesn't even begin to describe this. The highlight is gorgeous and incredibly pigmented but it can be sheered for a more everyday look. However it was the CONSISTENCY of the product that threw me off in the best way. It glides on with the least amount of pressure. Unlike most cream highlighters I've tried it has the right amount of slip to it that allows it to blend it in with the least amount of effort. It's the perfect formula for a cream highlighter. I have the Haloscope by Glossier in both the shades they have and those disappear if you apply powder over it, tugs a bit when you apply it, has LESS product than the Nyx one, and the it costs $22?! BUY THE NYX ONE. You will NOT regret it and the shade range is to die for, with darker shades that can maybe be used as bronzer and is a perfect natural highlight for women of color! Nice job Nyx!!! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="8826902872922693280-full" data-show="8826902872922693280-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - ulta.com user

"This is quickly becoming my new favorite bronzer. It has such a beautiful finish and blends amazing onto my skin. The shade is perfect to warm up my complexion without giving an orange tinge to it. The powder itself is soft and there is a lot of kickback but because it blends out so well I don’t mind. The packaging is also really nice. It feels way more luxury and expensive than it is." - walgreens user

Artisan Color Baked Bronzer by black radiance

"One of my favoirte blushes and I have a lot (elf, milani and I've tried a few mac). This is my go to blush. A little goes a long way. They are super pigmented and not irritating to the skin...there bronzer is amazing too. I haven't been disappointed at all by any of BlackRaiance Blushers. Oh, and they are also long lasting (very important. I have a blog entry w/ pictures (google fabjen's blog) " - drugstore.com user

Matte Bronzer by NYX Professional Makeup

"Last year I went into my local Ulta store and had them match me to a bronzer for contouring. I am extremely pale. I wear NARS Sheer Glow in Siberia and/or Mont Blanc; Just to give you an idea. I wanted a lower priced product at that time. Wasn't payday of course! So I went with a brand I love and looked for a NYX bronzer. They matched me to the medium shade. I didn't think much of it, until I got home and took it out of the packaging. I had been in a hurry and just threw it in my shopping bag. I learned my lesson to never do that again. It was SO dark. I couldn't use it. I didn't go back into my Ulta store, so I never bought a lighter shade. To the bottom of the box it went, never to be looked at again.I was revamping my makeup bag last month and needed a new bronzer for contouring. I wasn't happy with the high end brand choices in the store, so I went over to the more "drugstore" brands. I was buying a few NYX products and they were on a sale, so I needed one more thing. I went out on a limb and picked this up in Light. Man am I glad I bought it!! It is amazing!!! It's the perfect color for my skin, blends easily and there's no shimmer so it's perfect for contouring.I will definitely be re-purchasing! Less" - ulta.com user

Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Baked Bronzer by Physicians Formula

"I love this powder. First of all the product and packaging are beautiful, makes me happy just looking at it. The smell is wonderful, soft violet smell, I open this all the time just to smell it. I have both colors. I am light, but not super fair, for reference I can use PF mineral powder in translucent or creamy natural and both work well. I prefer the beige in this shade. It warms up my skin and provides a nice soft matte finish. It contains very fine shimmer but does not look shiny or sparkly at all, I use it mostly as a finishing powder after all my makeup. I swirl my owsn brush over in a c shape avoiding the bright pink heart for my whole face, then swirl over the pink heart and around it for the apple of my cheeks, beautiful pop of color. If your skin is very fair use the translucent but for me I love the beige, and usually anything called beige is too dark for me. I love love love this product, also love the blush and bronzer blush duo from this line <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - ulta.com user

Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Pressed Bronzer by Physicians Formula

"This is the best drugstore bronzer that I've found. It has battled high end bronzers and won. Those of us with fair skin really know which bronzers blend the best because we dont have that extra hint of color to hide mistakes. I'm telling you, this is better than the Butter Bronzer from this range. I have both but I was very disappointed in the butter bronzer. It is a creamy texture, causing it to apply much more patchy on my skin. Along with that, it has a strong fragrance. I like it but I dont think that fragrance has any business in my makeup. Anyway, try this bronzer, you wont regret it." - ulta user

Natural Bronzer by Rimmel

"I can't tell you how many times I've passed over this product and many other Rimmel products. I already have a bronzer that retails for $26 at Ulta and was skeptical about the Rimmel bronzer. But, I caught a 50% off sale at another store and thought, What the heck and picked up 027 Sun Dance. I must say I was very happy with everything about this bronzer. The container could be a little sturdier but the nice thing is the lid screws on. The bronzer itself is amazing. It isn't too powdery. The color is nice and not orangey. It is smooth and doesn't streak. It is very long wearing and I can use it as a blush or all over. It does have shimmer, but not "in your face" shimmer. Man, I am all ready for summer! Highly recommended." - walmart.com user

Pressed Powder Bronzer by Colourpop

"I haven't been able to put this bronzer down since I got it!! It was out of stock for a while in stores and online and when I finally got it I was about to leave for vacation in Mexico for 2 weeks. I only wanted to take makeup that I knew worked well for me, but after using this for 2 days this bronzer made the cut! Haha. On most days, I would just apply sunscreen, swipe on some of this bronzer, a light bit of mascara and lip balm or a bold lip for dinner and it was perfect! I am VERY pale (MAC doesn't make a shade light enough for me) and I loved this bronzer! It's super easy to blend out and not so pigmented that I look like I have brown stripes on my skin. Some fair/pale reviewers complained that this was very orange - I think this is on the warm side of bronzers (compared to some that are practically contour shades), but on my warm toned/ fair skin and red hair this shade looked great. Many people at the resort commented that my skin was beautiful and I had gotten such a nice tan. That's how I know that this shade works for me!! HahaThis also stayed on REALLY well! I went snorkeling and surfing and when I came to shore and wiped my face with a white towel this bronzer finally came off lol! I definitely recommend this bronzer for summer especially! If you're worried about the shade try seeing it in store first! :) Less" - Sephora user

Bronze Booster Pressed Bronzer by Physicians Formula

"Okay I know this sounds funny but I was roaming around looking for a bronzer & foundation that was on the cheap (compared to my usual smashbox or too faced)for work because I hate blowing through bronzer when I just waste it on going to my gross food counter job. I've tried just about e v e r y thing!!As long as your using the right bronzer brush its great for contouring, blends well, it's not very $$$, looks natural (night & day), and I love it so much that I now use it for every day and I probably wont get my too faced bronzer again to be honest!!! It's perfect for that tan glow without getting all shimmery and causing acne.Best part is-for using it everyday it's lasted me a 7 weeks. Woot woot!!!Plus- my friends have tried it & love it. Fair, olive, tanned, whatever your skin color I bet you'll agree this bronzer is a winner.2 thumbs up :) « less" - ulta.com user

Wonderbronze by Soap & Glory

"This product is lovely! I don't wear foundation so I just wear this as a base, and it has a lovely dewy look without making you look overly highlighted or sweaty. It dries fully after a couple of minutes and it's so light on the skin you forget you're wearing anything. Would highly recommend! :-) " - boots.com user

Baked Bronzer by ULTA Beauty

"Guys, this stuff is amazing. I ordered itx and was not expecting much. I just thought it looked pretty. I've been using it for over 4 months and it barely looks like any of it is missing. I have the worst oily, textured skin. This bronzer is seriously amazing. It looks like a shiny formula in the packaging, but it does not apply to the skin that way. I would describe it as a slightly dewy-looking bronzer. It lasts all day (I use setting spray, too). You guys will love it! I use it around my jaw and hairline, too!" - ulta user

"I love Rimmel products especially their powder products as it always gives such a nice finish and this didn't disappoint! I used this for bronzer, highlight and I used it on my eye lids when I wanted a little something that wasn't eye shadow. It lasted all day. I use it when I'm not wearing foundation too to give my face some colour and it just makes me look a little more glowy and awake. " - rimmellondon.com user

Baked Minerals Bronzer by Max Factor

"I love this bronzer so much it just looks like a natural healthy glow ,so much better than my usual bronzer ,it is nice and light and blends in really easily leaving no streaks ,it is not too sparkly and has minimal glitter so is suitable for day and evening,I found applying it with a blusher brush best .The colour is suitable for all shades of skin I just think you would need to apply more for darker skin types .The packaging is quite simple but does show off the lovely gold colour of the bronzer .Would definately recommend this to friends " - maxfactor.com user

Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder by Catrice Cosmetics

"I use this on top of my matte bronzers. It adds a nice natural sheen that's not over powering. It's not overly pigmented which I like and not muddy. It's very buildable. Smooth & easy to work with. I'm a light to medium tone with olive & pink under tones. I even use it as a light eyeshadow for a hint of colour. The only downside is that there is only 1 shade. Why? I think 3-6 would be great with all the different skin tones. Catrice please consider expanding your bronzers, concealers & foundation range etc. Unfortunately I don't think this will Work for anyone darker than a light medium skin tone. So far I've beenreally enjoying all the Catrice products I've bought. " - beautyboutique.ca user

Gentle Wear Natural Origin Bronzer by Physicians Formula

"I've always been afraid to try a bronzer because my skin is a true fair (porcelain skin). With my skin, every lotion bronzer I've tried has been too orange/dark brown on me (even ones made for fair). The review about this being for really fair skin helped me make my decision. I now wear this every day and it blends nicely with my makeup and skin tone. The only thing I'm a little concerned about is the label says cruelty free, yet I believe the brush is animal hair. Not 100% sure on that though, I prefer to use another brush with it anyway. I couldn't get the color to come off immediately, it did take some rubbing with the brush to pick up color.

Summer Eclipse Bronzing Powder by Physicians Formula

"Used on top of my physicians formula spf 50 beige and translucent beige foundation, this mineral powder bronzer gives outstanding color and coverage--natural and lovely, with added spf protection for my peace of mind (I've had two skin cancers surgically removed on the face, with scars to show for it, so I need serious skin protection and this is IT). OK, so with a nice cosmetic brush of my own, this powder mineral bronzer does make a bit of a mess in the sink, since it's looser than a packed powder would be, but I've learned to just load up the brush gently and apply it lightly all over my face for great coverage--no streaks, heavy areas, and it stays on all day. The color (with foundation below) is right on the money--just like a summer tan for my medium skin, and not too orangey. Does not irritate my sensitive eye skin area either, and the price is great at drugstore.com. I like this product better than my packed bronzer spf 20 by physicians formula--the mineral powder goes on much easier, with more natural color. I also am a former devoted buyer of Bare Minerals spf 30 foundation/bronzer, but I like my physicians formula products much better--they last longer, more economical price, better color and coverage, never a clog in the applicator (a huge problem with Bare Minerals foundation/bronzer spf 30) and physicians formula is also a breeze to find online at drugstore.com (instead of begging my salon to get in a new shipment of Bare Minerals). « less" - drugstore.com user

Delice De Poudre Bronzing Powder by Bourjois

"Many of my friends all rave about Bourjois products for their affordability, packaging and quality. I'd never really owned one of their products but had tried out many of my friends' products. One of them had this particular bronzer, and she was always going on abbout how amazing it was. I could tell because she never let me use it! So, I went down to boots and tried it out. I was firstly really impressed by it's non cakey, non greasy feel. It was as smooth as chocolate powder! I smelt it, and knew I had to get it. It's subtle chocolatey smell was just perfect! And it comes in a cute little box, which fits right in my purse. I got the shade 51, because I was looking for a more glowy look rather than a bronzed look. This is the best bloomin' bronzer I've ever used and I will continue to use it! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Boots.com user

Back To Bronze Matte Bronzing Powder by L'Oreal

"I bought this only a week ago and I can say I'm already in love! I have tried many bronzers including Benefit Hoola and a MAC one yet this beats all of them. My skin is incredibly sensitive and I breakout so easily but this agrees with my skin so well. It is pigmented but can be blended out nicely and for me, is the perfect shade for bronzing and contouring. I've also been using it everyday for a week and the pattern hasn't even faded slightly, so it looks likes it's going to last! " - superdrug.com user

Glow All the Way Face & Body Luminizer Doll Face  by Hard Candy

"First off.... To the person who reviewed it as a self tanner- it's NOT a self tanner! This is just a bronzer that washes off with soap and water. So basically it's makeup. There is no dihydroxyacetone in it (the ingredient necessary for a product to be a self tanner....that's the stinky ingredient!). Anyway, this stuff smells nice, actually it really doesn't smell like anything at all. Just One of the many factors that make it the best! It's also easy to use- It's not hard to apply.... I can see why some people dislike the thickness because it definitely is but I don't think that's a negative. If I don't want it to be thick or want a more subtle glow , I do what the other reviewers suggest, I add a bit of lotion to it and make it the consistency that I want. (My favorite lotion to mix it with is the Aveeno Excema Cream.I've mixed it with oils too and it seems to mix with just about everything I've tried so far!). Tip: if you are having trouble blending it, just remember to keep applying in circles! That will prevent streaking and make it look natural. This stuff is cheap too. $8 - can't really beat that. The tube will last you months. (Or longer; my first tube lasted literally for years!). And I use it daily! It can even be used to contour. One more thing- it is technically sold year round (I think) but the rack is usually empty in the fall and winter. Stock up! AND they make other shades including one that is more sheer so check those out. Ok, this review was really long. Sorry guys! And Thanks Hard Candy, this stuff is the best ! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - walmart.com user

Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder by e.l.f.

"For the price of the concealer it isn't bad. It covers redness quite well if you blend it in. Sometimes it may feel a little bit thick but none the less gets the job done. It gives your skin this smooth texture when you've finished putting it on, but if you put too much it gets clumpy. My friends who have also tried this product say that it dries there skin out but for some reason I don't have that problem. But of course everyone's skin is different so I guess it depends on the type of skin you have. If you use moisturizer before using this product you might not have this problem.I personally have a lot of redness and this product works wonders in covering it up. It is good for under eye concealing as well. When I tend to have dark circles I dab some on and it solves the problem. I find the applicator that it comes in a little too big for me to use so I just use my concealer brush and put it on my face. There is a lot more precision with this technique. Considering that the concealer costs very cheap, the amount of product you get is fair I would say. The concealer is very convenient because it is pretty small, about the size of an average female's pinky finger. The product has an orange flavored scent to it as well, which isn't unpleasant but to those who prefer their concealers to be fragrant free, this might not be the right product for you. Overall the concealer does what it is suppose to do, conceals your blemishes. It isn't the best concealer out there but again you get what you paid for. After 3 months of use, there is still a lot of product left in the tube. I really like that this concealer is pigmented enough to cover even the darkest blemishes on my skin. In order to get a really matte nice finish, putting foundation on after using this product works very well. My skin looks almost flawless when I use this concealer and some foundation. Overall I am satisfied with this product, it doesn't break me out like some other concealers in the past that I have used on my skin. It lasts pretty long, about 8 to 9 hours worth of coverage, even after that many hours it only starts fading a bit, not to noticeable.I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a cheap concealer that gets the job done. I was defiantly not expecting the product to work as well as it said it would because of the price. I will be purchasing this product again because of its quality and cheap price. « less" - viewpoints.com user

"I absolutely love this product! It's cheap, last long even with a daily use, and it's fantastic wiht my red hair! It matches the colour perfectly. I use it with a large brush (the brush that comes with it is just bad) and i apply it just on my cheeks most of the time. Just a lil bit to make my face looks fresh and healthy. Sometimes I don't even bother to wear mascara, if I'm late for work or sleepy I just put this on and I instantly look sparkly and fresh. However, the only con I would have to say about it is that it is sometimes just a little bit too glittery for a real natural look. Overall I'm just in love with this product!
