First off, this bronzer has shimmer, so if you want that, great. If not, then stay away. This may lure you in because the size of these are HUGE! But the pigmentation is barely visible. I can keep applying and applying and it really doesn't make a difference. The first layer is a bunch of gold shimmer, and that really shows up but once you get past it is when you have to work at getting color.
I wanted to have that nice sun kissed glow on my face that everyone else gets from the tanning bed or going somewhere tropical.. They do put a tanned look to your face.. But if you use to much you kinda look well over tanned.
