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.

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.

Try before you buy

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
Sampled

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.

Not good for sensitive skin
Sampled

I don't generally consider myself to have "sensitive skin", but every now and then random products prove me wrong. This was one. As soon as I applied the bronzer, my skin began prickling and turning red. I gave it to my roommate and she's fine with it though.

Not for the fair-skinned
Sampled

While I liked the texture of the product, it made my skin look orange and very unnatural. I have fair skin with red undertones, so perhaps it would be better on someone with a more olive or suntanned complexion?
