A staple for me! I use this every day. It’s a very natural glow and blends well into skin.

Just ok

I don't understand all the hype or 5 star reviews. This bronzer has hardly and pigmentation in it. I am borderline fair to medium skin and tried the medium bronzer and honestly, I can't even tell I have put it on, I apply my bronzers with a kabuki brush. My favorite bronzer is Urban Decay in Toasted (mostly matte with the faintest amount of a sparkle), but, it's currently unavailable and so here I am suffering trying to find a replacement without a ton of sparkles in it, I hate all the shimmer, so I was excited to try this bronzer. I took my almost gone Urban Decay in to match the color and while this matched in the container... I can't even see it on my face. It's going back. Too sheer, not enough pigment. user

This is NOT a blush but actually a beautiful bronzer!

Ok so I want to set the confusion straight on how people are commenting on the pink colors as a "blush". Those reviews almost made me not buy this, and I am so glad that I still did! I cannot live without this product! The pink colors are ACTUALLY bronzers made for a very specific fair complexion with Antigua bringing the lightest of them all. Antigua is for people with complexions up to warm ivory in foundation. I lost a lot of my pigment in my skin, making me the fairest of all Italians out there. I have very dark hair and eyes (almost black) and my skin is so fair that I often felt like a ghost. I have been unable to wear a bronzer. I do not tan at all in the sun so every bronzer was just way too dark. The Antigua bronzer works wonders on my fair, dry complexion. I use the face blender brush to apply a lighter application. I wear Warm Ivory in foundation and have pink and yellow under. The bronzer blends into fair complexions great and looks very natural. My extra dry skin cannot handle powder and I have found that this bronzer sets my foundation nicely. It has a matt finish and does not settle in dry patches or cracks. The shimmer is not over done on this product and it does give my skin a nice glow. My cheeks are naturally pink and my face can get red easily (which can be often in the hot desert). I can still wear blush with the bronzer and my face does not ever appear red or pink. My skin just looks healthy, hydrated, and full of life! Thanks Bobbi for thinking about the fair women out there! Pros: dry skin, bronzer for fair complexions, lasts all day, provides natural coloring to skin Cons: will become your favorite product that you cannot go without « less

THE BEST bronzer

I have fair, cool-toned skin and foundations for my skintone tend to make me look flat, washed out and sick without bronzer. I bought this in the lightest color and it is PERFECT. Not orange at all, not even overly brown. It is matte but not flat-looking. I really dislike bronzers with shimmer because I only like a tiny bit of shimmer on parts of my face I want to highlight, and it's difficult to apply a shimmery bronzer all over while looking even remotely natural.It's a very sheer, buildable, highly pigmented and natural color. I barely tap my brush onto the pan and have enough color to apply as a cheek contour and then blended onto that side of the face; one more tap for the other side, one more for my nose, forehead. Takehome message: this product will last FOREVER. I mean it when I say you barely have to touch the brush to get good, natural looking color.My only complaint is that I dropped it (on carpet! from not very high!) and the notch holding the otherwise awesome packaging shut broke. Now I can't close the compact and will have to tape it shut for travel, which is really too bad at this price point and considering how much longer I will likely have this product before needing to repurchase. It might have been a fluke and just hit the ground at an unfortunate angle - not sure. At least the actual product inside remained intact. Regardless, I've had this for a year now and it looks like I've barely made a dent, so I can't complain.I will absolutely repurchase and I really don't think I will ever buy another bronzer again. This was my first Bobbi Brown product and I will be back! « less user

Glow getter!

This illuminating powder is my life saviour, on days when I'm not feeling too rosey....It makes me look healthy and happy!!!! Which means I always get compliments when I wear it!!!The powder formula is exceptionally sheer and lightweight on application. Enhances the cheekbones with a luminous, pearlized shimmer.Colour blends well, builds naturally, subtly, layer after layer, and the he result is long lasting. Looking as good at the end of the day as it did in the morning!!!!!!
