The Best I Have Found

I have been using this bronzing powder for years and just now got around to reviewing it. It has a wonderful, subtle sheen, so it doesn’t look flat and pasty, but also not too shiny. It’s a beautiful brown-toned bronze, not orange (and my skin picks up orange very easily). I can’t imagine using a different bronzer. This is the lighter version of the Nars bronzers, which is perfect for my fair/light skin. For darker skin, you would want the Casino color.

Holy Grail Bronzer

Love this, been using it for years on my NW25 skin. Gives the perfect glow, never breaks me out. LOVE

Fantastic product

I received a sample of this bronzer in the Laguna shade. I never would have selected it for myself and wasn’t really expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. Next to MAC, this is the best bronzer I’ve ever used. It gives me subtle color without a lot of sparkle. The Laguna color is light enough that it’s perfect for my fair skin, and doesn’t make my face look orange. I can apply just a dusting for a very natural look, and build up the color if needed. I love this product and definitely recommend it to everyone.

It’s okay

I did a lot of research on foundation brushes before purchasing this brush. Alllll of the beauty sites were IN LOVE with this brush. So I went to macy’s and saw it in person. The brush is synthetic and soft. It’s also short bristle and dense. It has all of the makings for a perfect foundation brush, but personally I didn’t feel like it delivered. I have other brushes from different companies (dior, mac and even sigma) that I feel blend out much better than this brush. It’s still a great brush- and if you are looking to build your brush collection, can definitely have a spot. But if you are looking for only one foundation brush- this isn’t the one.

i really love this brush

I was hesitant about plunking down the money for this brush…I’ve have brushes fall apart, and I hoped that this brush was of superior quality. it is. I love the way it applies foundation so easily and effortlessly. I made a wise choice in purchasing this brush and I am well pleased.

Best makeup brush.

I use this brush to apply my foundation. No streaks and makeup is very easy to move around and blend on my face. Everyone should have at least one of these to add to their collection of makeup brushes.

the smell… OHMYGOD

I love that this isn’t shimmery and my face is extremely oily so I love the matte aspect as well. It is a delight to smell every time I do my makeup. I also use this for contouring since it’s not shimmery.

Another great e.l.f. product

This baked highlighter is awesome. If you use it dry you will get a very subtle glow when light hits it. It just brightens your complexion without really seeing it. If you dampen your brush then apply it, it still isn’t fake and glittery looking as so many are, it just is more prominent. Wet application is how I prefer this one, I love the nice glow it adds to my face. I’m 50 something, so I don’t want anything garish, just a nice healthy looking glow. This provides it, and what a fantastic price. I also use it under my brow to really open my eyes up which makes your skin look younger. I love it most for the top of my cheeks, I have high cheekbones that weren’t as prominent as I aged. This has brought my youthful look back without being noticeable. Hope that makes sense. I like make-up to enhance my look not be my look. In my opinion if you are noticing someone’s make-up versus their appearance, the make-up isn’t the right product or not applied correctly.

I will never know!

I can not express how disappointed I am with the seller of this product. I didin’t even get a chance to try it, it was DESTROYED when it arrived! It didn’t even have a health safety seal(gross, someone could have put their hands in it!). I wish I had just gone to Wal-Mart, which I suggest anyone interested in this product should do. Now I have to wait 4 weeks for a refund!However, from looking at the bronzer before returning it, this is what I observed:Very shimmery, great if you like a lot of shimmer.I you have oily skin, this might make it look worse.But, like I said, I will never know for sure!

I get so, so, so many compliments when I use this!

I normally only wear eye makeup – I never wear foundation, blush, bronzers, or any type of powder on my face. I saw this when I was buying some eyeliners, and I have to admit that I was suckered in by the name and the fact that the product was a shimmery pinkish nude color. I figured if nothing else, I could try using it as an eyeshadow.I brought it home and put just a small amount on my cheeks, and I am really obsessed. So now I wear it daily, and I get so many compliments on my skin! It is not a highligher – maybe more of an illuminizer? (And you cannot use it as and eyeshadow as I originally thought – way too light.) In any event, it is a very sheer, slightly shimmery product that makes my skin look dewy and fresh (not glittery, which I was afraid of). So many people have told me I have beautiful skin when I wear this. Honestly, I think if you have reasonably clear skin (which I get by usingOxy Maximum Action Advanced Face Wash, 5 Ounce- I’ve gotten maybe five blemishes over the course of the two-ish years that I’ve been using that product), you can just throw a little bit of this product on your cheeks, and people will think your skin is amazing. I highly recommend!If you are looking for more of a classic highlighting product for your eyes, I recommend BeneFit High Beam.

LOVE This concealer!

I just learned how to high light and contour (aka HAC see tutorial at […]) and this is the concealer I use every day. I LOVE it. I have a very light complexion, and I use the Fair of this concealer. it works great.To use (took me a second too). Pull the top off the end that you can’t see the product through, then twist the other end until concealer starts coming out of the brush. You have to twist it A LOT the first time you use it. Just keep twisting until you see it coming out the brush end. Dab on and blend with a kabuki brush and perfect LUMINOUS finish every time. I’ll never use another concealer!

Very good concealer-highlighter

I was pleasantly surprised how good this concealer works under my eyes (reminds me of the YSL one a lot in it’s radiance) however it is more tacky than YSL and I have to moisturize my eyes really well in order to GLIDE this on properly. I really like the results though and I am SUPER happy with the price.

Amazing at any price!! The BEST self tanner in 20 years.

Palmer’s Sunless Tanner should have a huge following.I am MADLY IN LOVE with this product. It is the best self tanner I have found at any price! No kidding. Here is why…1. Amazing natural color2. Absolutely no smell!! (This is a first for me. Everything else I have tried goes bad on my skin.)3. No streaking. As will all self tanners, I am careful to blend around knees & elbows.4. Fast subtle color that is easy to build on.5. Color lasts! People don’t know why, but say I look rested & happy with this color.6. Cheap! A little goes a long way.7. Good for everything from face, around eyes, to legs. I use it on my face over my daily moisturizer & still get color.8. Has SPF!9. Nice light moisurizer.10. Don’t let the “Instant bronzer” feature scare you. It is SO subtle that it simply helps avoid streaks when blending.I will be crushed if this is ever discontinued. I have used self tanners since the beginning of time. As a strawberry blonde, tanning is not an intelligent option. TRY IT! It’s so cheap that you have very little to lose….

It Does Streak but the Colors Nice

The reviews written for this product were rave: “best color”, “no streaks”, “no smell”…The color is alright. The first day I applied it it looked almost orange but the next day it darkened and it doesn’t look too bad. I’m probably not going to wear it again. In just the first application it darkened so much… I’m worried I’ll look like a burnt orange when the bottle is gone.It does streak. I mixed it 1 part Palmers 1 part moisturizer lotion (that makes the self tanner less potent) however even then the Palmers is so thick that it’s almost impossible for it not to streak. When it dried it looked blotchy. Also I washed my hands thoroughly but it still absorbed into my cuticles on my nails so my fingernails look orange.It does smell like self tanner… and chocolate. It smelled like I was rubbing chocolate syrup on me. Then when it dried the self tanner smell was very strong.

It is okay

This stuff is okay. I mix it with my daily lotion when I used it so it doesn’t go on too heavily. It didn’t streak too much and the smell was kind of chocolatey. It was okay, but I probably won’t buy it again because it wasn’t great.

Makeup Full of Carcinogens

I bought this product due to the rage, but also did some research about the ingredients. The two active ingredients are known to be carcinogens which cause skin cancer. In addition, the inactive ingredients cause folks to break out in an itchy rash. Going back! Bare Escentuals is not the answer to better makeup or skincare. Spoiler alert!
