- Ulta User

staying power

- Sephora User

this gives the prettiest bronze look and stays on for so long

- Sephora User



it just makes my skin lol so pretty and is not too heavy not does it look muddy

- Ulta User

it is lightweight and gives your skin a nice glow (through all 4 seasons- if you live in a nonstop weather changing climate like myself) i would 100% recommend this product to anyone looking for a bronzer

- Tartecosmetics User


blends well

the powder is excellent quality, easy to blend texture, finely milled and has very subtle glistening light reflecting particles but not at all overly shimmery or sparkly

- Sephora User

very pigmented but blendable, i'm using it lighthandedly applying with big fluffy brush all over my face, chest and shoulders for perfect summer look

- Tartecosmetics User


does not have fallout

the pigment is amazing with little fall out

- Tartecosmetics User

the "clay" formulation is different from other bronzers (in a good way) in my opinion, as it is not powdery or drying at all and doesn't oxidize over time

- Sephora User



i love the silky texture of the formula and how blendable this is

- Sephora User

i generally love how good hotel heiress smells and the clay texture is so soft

- Ulta User



my oily skin (paired with a few other oil control products in my routine) doesn't eat through the powder like my skin does with many other blushes and bronzers

- Ulta User

the texture is smooth

- Ulta User



i think my favorite thing about this bronzer is honestly how long wearing it is, when using this, i always follow up with a translucent setting powder to make sure the bronzer is locked down all day long, but i'm alway amazed by the end of the day how perfect my bronzer still looks

- Tartecosmetics User

i initially thought it was too sheer, until i realised how great it looked when it was built up (i am light/medium to medium skin tone)

The Only Bronzer You Will Need (Other Than The Matte Version)

I have light-brown skin (light-medium foundation) but it is on the ashy side so I need a little help to give me that beautiful golden glow. This bronzer delivers that wonderfully. It has a bit of shimmer so it is perfect to just wear on its own like a highlighter or over a peachy-pink blush. I can definitely see how this would be a universal shade.It is super pigmented so use a very light hand, and it is buildable and blends like a dream. Just make sure you have the right brush. Try it on in different lighting so you can really see how much you need to use. It lasts the whole day for me - no touchups needed! If you are someone who needs to carry touchups, I would put this in a separate pouch as I do not see the magnetic closure being very secure.If you prefer a matte bronzer, definitely try their matte waterproof bronzer in the same shade; I like to use that on my neck to give it a bit of a glow. Less

Love this

I’ve used Tarte Amazonian Clay bronzers for years. I love the silky texture of the formula and how blendable this is. It is also truly waterproof. It takes a makeup remover or cleanser to get this to budge which is perfect if you’re an active minimalist like me. My only critique is that I wish there were a greater range of shades since this product is so great.

Great product...

I have super oily skin so this bronzer has worked perfectly for me. It has a beautiful natural-looking matte finish that gives me that hint of a “tanned” look without having to get my face in the sun (which I no longer do because of wrinkles and skin cancer). I apply it with a fan brush across my forehead, cheeks, down the bridge of my nose and my chin and it gives me a natural-looking tanned effect. I love the fact that it has the matte finish especially because I’ve got such oily skin. My dermatologist told me that when looking for products to look for products with antioxidants and vitamins in the ingredient list and this has both so it’s not only a great looking bronzer, it’s good for my skin at the same time. It is very lightweight and goes on sheer with buildable coverage so I can start lightly and keep adding until I’ve got the amount of color I need without putting on too much with the first swipe of the brush. I can wear it all day without it fading into my oily skin and I think it actually helps control the oiliness so I can say honestly that it has real staying power. I think this is a really great bronzer and Tarte makes great products so I’d definitely recommend giving this bronzer a try. « less

I love Tarte product. I bought this one because it was a waterproof bronzer. But, when you swatch it, its a very shimmery not even close to being matte. P.S. I do own a Tarte blushes, and they are the best blush you can possible have. Last all day long, very pigmented and doesn't looks like you have a lot of a product.

Perfect for medium skin tones

I used to use a matte bronzer by Too Faced, until I finally ran out and had to buy a new bronzer. I borrowed this from a friend and instantly fell in love. This has VERY slight shimmer, just enough to make your skin look healthy, unlike matte bronzer, which can sometimes make your face look dirty if improperly applied. This Tarte bronzer also didn't budge all day -- I don't know about "waterproof," but it didn't smudge or fade throughout the day. It blends well, and it isn't too pigmented so you can build up the color (my past bronzers were always too pigmented, resulting in unintentional heavy-handed initial application.) I definitely recommend this for anyone who has medium skin tones as well, because it isn't too orange or brown. I personally have light-medium skin with yellow undertones, and I love the natural look this bronzer creates! « less

I’ve had good luck with bronzers from Revlon. I’m currently using the Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer. Nice packaging and it lasts well, though applying with a light hand is recommended if you’re at all pale!

Any recommendations for a bronzer that won’t go orange on me? I’m super fair skinned and every bronzer I try turns a hint of orange. Thank you!

My favourites are @Butter Bronzer and @Amazonian Clay Bronzer they are both buildable, therefore they can act as both natural or more defined!
