I like this bronzer because it's not orange and it complements my olive skin when I tan- my face is usually lighter than my body so I like the two to match when I'm wearing short sleeves etc. I wouldn't use this to warm up my complexion, more so to deepen what's already there! ;)

great for contouring

I dont contour a whole lot because its pretty hard to find the perfect shade but this bronzer is awesome! It has the perfect combination of brown and grey, I dont recommend it for bronzing because itll just make you look muddy. But overall its a great product for contouring.

best bronzer for its price (not too expensive and lasts a long time). I bought it for 14 euros in italy (which is maybe 23 bucks, not sure) so it is cheaper in the U.S. Does not make me orange. perfect undertones. lasted me for 6 months and i still havent hit pan. great investment and is literally the perfect contour (or bronzer). P.S it's matte!

Amazingly stunning

I am pretty pale, I have no business buying something that looked this dark.

I am sure glad I did! This was something I knew I could use either way, on me or on clients. This product gives my contour the depth of losing 10 lbs (which I could stand to do) without making me look so unnatural in color. A little does go a long way... and if you're fair skinned like myself, be light handed with a not as dense counter brush!

theBalm packaging is always super cute and sleek so this makes it ideal to travel with you.

Too dark

I have medium skin tone and this is even darker than Benefit's hoola bronzer so that's very dark! I'd recommend for darker skin tones at least! Makes me look just dirty and unnatural when I've used it.

Absolutely love the packaging and the color! It is a really natural looking color, nothing orangy so looks natural. However it can be a bit difficult to blend out so this is not for beginners. I recommend powdering your foundation first and then apply the bronzer over it so it becomes easier to blend. I added a swatch photo.

Not the best

I'm big on bronzers, I use them everyday. I wasn't pleased with this one, I found that it made my skin look dirtier compared to other bronzers. I use this strictly for contouring. For contouring it's fantastic!

Favorite Contouring Bronzer

Once I figured out how to work with this, I fell in love! It is very pigmented, so a little goes a long way! It is a beautiful tan, with grayish undertones, so it looks more natural than orange bronzers. It gives a beautiful tan contour to the skin. I absolutely love this and it blends so easily!
