stila one step bronze

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.

Beware if You Are Fair-Skinned

This gave me a definite orange glow -- it was unusable for me. Seems like a great product, but for those with more naturally darker-toned skin.

Oil slick on my face
Sampled

Creamy and even consistency that was easy to apply and gave good subtle bronzing, but it was way too oily for me. To be fair, I have oily skin AND live in a very hot and humid area, but I had to wipe this off an hour after application. My skin felt like it was suffocating.

I was excited to receive a face serum, but this one is not for me. The sparkles look ridiculous. I just don't care for that look. Also, I also prefer my pale skin to a "fake tan."

Bronzer goddess I am not.
Sampled

I am too pale for this product. I tried putting it all over my face like the bottle says, and it made me look like a mythical fairy--unnatural skin color and too much shimmer. On a different day, I put it on the high points of my face, trying to imitate an actual tan. No dice. There is too much orange in the bronzer too look natural. I have settled for using it as a contouring bronzer in the hollows of my cheeks and for under my neck because I don't want to waste the product since it is very smooth, smells good, and does work as a light primer.

Too much shimmer. The color is funky. It leaves a slightly sticky feeling on my face. This was definitely not for me.

Stila one step bronze

Too dark for my very very pale skin. I am not really into bronzer. I tested it thou and loved the way it felt on my skin and would recommend it to others. Traded my friend for a full size product in her box.

Not a natural look for fair skin
Sampled

Too much bronze for fair skin; it doesn't look natural on me. Definitely not something I'd use.
However, I gave my sample to my co-worker, and it looks great on her medium-toned skin. She loves it!

Too dark for me

This product is too dark for my skin color. I'm pretty fair skin and this just adds a way too dark look.

Would have loved to love...
Sampled

As an avid user of Stila products, I was so thrilled to receive such a large sample of the bronzer...however, with the added shimmer, my face just didn't agree with the product. Massive breakout. I would have loved to receive the matte version of this product -- I think it would be perfect for a subtle summer bronze. The product did apply smoothly, absorbed well and left no heavy feeling. Just not the best version for extremely sensitive skin.
