Birchbox Breakdown

This bronzing serum may look like a sci-fi invention, but don’t be intimidated. The three-in-one primer, bronzer, and skin perfector addresses our three main concerns: oversized pores, unevenness, and lackluster skintone. Made with a triple helix of bronzing, highlighting, and illuminating pigments, the creamy formula has a mousse-like consistency, and is subtly laced with coppery shimmer. We love how it blends easily and dries to a matte finish. Plus, it keeps your skin’s oil levels in check, so your makeup doesn’t slide off midway through the day.

How it Works

The formula uses a trio of complementary pigments: coppery bronze adds warmth, pink-toned bronze evens out skin tone, and Kitten (one of stila’s best-loved shades) brightens and conceals with its soft shimmery champagne hues. When you push down on the applicator, these pigments swirl together to create a lightweight serum. In addition to sheer coverage, it delivers an anti-aging mineral complex that helps regulate oil production while shrinking the look of enlarged pores, fine lines, and wrinkles.

How to Use

Apply this serum to clean skin for an all-over glow. You can wear it by itself or follow with foundation or tinted moisturizer for extra coverage. For subtle highlighting effects, dab on to cheekbones, brow bones, and the tip of your chin. Blend well.

Fabulous!

I absolutely love this bronzer! My complexion is fair and at times I need some help to tone down the paleness...this is the best producer I've tried that works the way I want. It's not too dark and blends in well.

I really like how this bronzer makes me look sunkissed. My face looks flawless and healthy. But just make sure you don't use TOO much. You will look TOO dark and really brassy.

Amazing

I use this over my regular foundation and it gives just enough color without leaving you skin with an orange tint. It is also light and dosen't clog pores.

Purchasing my 3rd full sized bottle
SampledPurchased

I got this sample in my first Birchbox over 2 years ago. It is the perfect one-step summer bronzer. I don't wear much makeup in the summer, I am able to just use concealer, this bronzer and mascara and be good to go for the day. It's probably my favorite spring/summer beauty product.

lovely
SampledPurchased

I love this bronzer! I use it in the summer to mix with Dr Jart Black Label, which I use as a foundation year round. The Dr Jart protects my skin from sun so well, that my face ends up not matching the rest of my body color-wise in the summer. The rest of me is tan, but my face stays stubbornly white. This bronzer mixes very well with it and keeps me from using as much product on my face in the summer. I also love the shimmer - very summery!

I LOVE this bronzer, its not super shimmery like some and it doesn't leave you looking like you smeared a really dark color on your face. It blends nicely, leaving a healthy glow. Its so easy to apply since its liquid, and leaves skin looking really great. I have one at home and one in my gym bag for a fast application to look just as good as post-vacation!

Perfect!

I absolutely love this product. I did not receive it as a sample and I bought it anyways, which was a great decision overall! The product goes on very cold and refreshing and sets into your skin very nicely and evenly. The color is perfect for a little bronzier skin, I love it!

Makes face look fresh and we'll-rested
Purchased

This product is perfect for an everyday look, but it's especially good when you want to look fresh and well-rested. I highly recommend it for days when you aren't looking you're best when you go to put on your makeup. It'll turn things totally around for you.

It applies easily and stays put. I recommend using a primer for extra staying power.
