I always love a good bronzer. Usually I shy away from shimmery or sparkly bronzer because I like to contour the ISH out of my face. lol. Like I will put some under my chin line, my cheek hallows, and my forehead sides. However, I have never really owned a bronzer that is tan but also has shimmer, So this was definitely a first for me.
I was really wanting the Luminizer which is the sister product to this, Its a highlighter because you know me....I LOVE highlighters!
But sadly they were out, so I got the next best thing, which was the bronzer!
I wasn't really expecting much out of this bronzer, simply because I had never really been attracted to shimmery bronzers, so I had no idea what to expect. It looked pretty in the pan but not really much else. When I swatched it, still unconvinced, I noticed it had tons of gold sparkles in it that looked radiant on my hand, and when I applied it????!! Man! It made my skin sing!
Applying it was a breeze. It almost felt wet! It also gave the appearance that I had a applied a cream bronzer. Thats how much it blended into my skin. Not dusty or dry at all. Just a swipe along your cheekbones and your set!
I most likely will be reaching for this more often now that I actually wore it for the first time. I will still use my contour bronzer but this will be for if I need to add life to my face.

The application of this bronzer is so so soooo creamy and easy to apply. Not dry or cakey at all. Like I mentioned before, it almost reminded me of a cream blush, the way it looked on my skin. It has a lot of product (0.3 oz) and I believe I will have this for some time to come. You really barely need a tap, but if your like me, I love seeing the blush on my cheeks and not just a barely there hint of it.
The only cons I would say is that it is pretty expensive (I got mine from Amazon for 23 dollars and free shipping). I mean, 4 more dollars and I could have gotten a NARS blush...
Also, the packaging is quite cheap. Cheap as in, I bought this maybe 2 weeks ago and the pan is already separated from the bottom. What a epic fail! Seriously, I dont really care cause I can use super glue and it will be fine, But I really never even play with it so I'm surprised it fell apart so easily.
All in all, I would recommend this bronzer. It will probably last a while. Big PLUS!
