As someone who is forever hesitant to try out a new bronzer, I can truly say this is a very user friendly product. The powder is finely milled and it is easy to slowly build up the color on my cheeks as opposed to slapping on too much by accident and desperately trying to blend it away. It appears very matte in the pan and in the swatch, but on the skin it has just the tiniest satin tinge that gives a very natural glow to the cheeks. It isn’t the longest lasting bronzer I own, but it definitely lasts through the work day, and when it fades, it does so naturally instead of looking patchy.
My favorite part about this bronzer though is the undertone. It is perfectly balanced and truly neutral. It has enough coolness to contour with, but enough warmth to brighten up my face. If a bronzer has just the tiniest too much red or orange in it, it will show up extremely muddy on my face, but this shade always look relaxed and natural. I also love the packaging on this! The muted tan/taupe color of the compact just speaks to me.
