Honestly my FAVORITE BRONZER right now. I started off with the Light Bronzer shade and now have purchased the Bronzer shade as well. To be honest, there isn't a huge difference between the two shades.

I have a light, maybe light-medium skin tone, around NC25-30 if I have to compare it to MAC. The Light Bronzer shade still works really nicely for me, although when I'm closer to NC30 in the summer it does get a little too pale (and I will switch to the Bronzer shade). So, the shade selection is very limited and will not work for anyone darker than a medium skin tone, which is really unfortunate.

However, for anyone who has a skin tone light enough / pale people who have been searching for a beautiful and easy to user bronzer, this is great!

When I first used it, I swatched it on the back of my hand and it looked to be around the same shade as my hand. But when I applied it to my face, it really did a good job at giving a natural yet noticeable bronze to the face.

It isn't matte or shimmer; it has a fine sheen and when on the face, there is a really beautiful natural glow to it. I have combination to oily skin and this does not accentuate any oiliness at all.

The smell of the product is pretty strong; I like it, but if you don't like it you will find this product hard to use.

Overall, I really like this product (as you can probably tell by my purchasing a second one before I've even finished the first)!

Well, this stuff sort of blew my mind. This is far and away the best powder bronzer I have ever used on my fair, cool-to-neutral toned skin. HG for fair skin. I'll repeat that. HG for FAIR skin. Don't expect this to even show up if you have medium skin. I've been using NARS Laguna for the longest time, but it's highly-pigmented and requires a light hand. While Laguna contains a very slight bit of shimmer or glitter or something sparkly I see in that pan, this one does not. This is a completely matte, warm color that is not highly-pigmented - which is why it works on pale, fair-skinned folks. It cannot be overdone - it never looks muddy or dirty as so many powder bronzers can (I'm looking at you, Hoola). While it's buildable, it never appears too dark or fake. It is not orangey in the slightest. It reminds me of Guerlain's Terracotta Bronzer but not as red; it just gives the loveliest natural flush of color to fair skin. It can warm up your face if used all over with a very heavy handed-kabuki, or it provides the most natural contouring you can imagine with an angled contour brush or even a MAC 109. This can actually be buffed into the skin without looking artificial. This is the only powder bronzer that gives my Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel a run for its money. Speaking of money.. the price alone is ridiculous. A drugstore bronzer that has trumped my high-end brands by miles?! I try makeup as if money were no object, because this is how I choose to spend my disposable income. I'll buy anything if it really works, and I'm probably more critical of drugstore brands because I believe you get what you pay for. However, some inexpensive products defy all logic, and perform magically. This bronzer is one.

I wasn’t expecting much from this baked highlighter and bronzer; but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this product.

I’m not really a fan of duos in a single pan, but somehow, this worked. I used a stippling brush and applied the bronzer part to the hollows of my cheek. While sweeping my brush back and forth on the duo pan, I also made sure to get some highlighter on the edge of my brush. This created such a gorgeous blended out glowy look on my cheeks.

The shimmer from the highlighter combined with the bronzer gave me an effortlessly contoured and sculpted effect. It’s kind of like the whole “no makeup” makeup look, but this is more like the “no contour” contour look, if you catch my drift. haha

Rimmel did a great job on this bronzer. I absolutely love it. I have had it for awhile and use it often and have still not hit pan, so the price is great as well as the amount of product you get. The product itself gives you a beautiful natural glow. I am fair skinned & this does not make me look orange or muddy. It blends well and lasts throughout the day. I use a medium dense blush brush to blend this into my contour and around my forhead and jawline. A little goes a long way. I purchased this leisure at Walgreens, the piece was very reasonable and I'd recommend this product.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I am addicted to this bronzer!! I randomly discovered Pixi while browsing the beauty aisle in Target, and cannot say enough about this bronzer. I use it EVERY SINGLE DAY. No joke. I'll wear on top of some primer and bb cream or add it to a complete contoured look, depending on place/time. I use each bronzer right down to the very end. I've learned to keep a stash!

I am a lover of bronzers, I think they light up the face and give a much more striking appearance to the makeup. I bought this bronzer in a pharmacy, that is to say that they are quite accessible. I think they are very well pigmented and leave a very natural tan on the face, which makes it ideal for daily use. It is a product that comes in a fairly large size and I find it excellent because it lasts quite a lot.
