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.

the combination of colors and tones in this bronzer create a really nice look on my skin and give a bit of shimmer. I really liked it and it didn't appear orange like some bronzers

I love this product! It was dark at first but then blended into my skin. Great for summer time!

I love this. I received it today, and mixed it with my Tarte foundation and WOW! Instant bronze magic! The perfect amount of shimmer, and it is not in the least bit orange. I love Stila, and I love this serum. I said I would not purchase because this sample is going to last a lifetime, thanks bb!!

my skin tone is very olive, so I dont often use bronzers at all. But this had a bit too much glitter in it for my liking! But I love getting full sized products in my box so keep them coming!

This is great, but a little dark, and I am a medium skinned person with a tan. I have been using it as a cheek bronzer and think it's awesome for that purpose.

Love!

I love this product! I have brown skin naturally so I don't use this as an all over bronzer but more of a highlighter. I put it on the apples of my checks and other high point for more a glow kind of look. It is nice and light and doesn't feel heavy or greasy. It also looks really cool!

It feels so like and smooth on skin and gives it a dewy glow. Definitely using this a lot during the summer!

shimmery bronze
Sampled

The colour is nice if you don't mind some shimmer, although it is a little too dark for my fair skin. The pump dispenses way too much product so I would reccomend not pumping it all the way down... too much shimmer for all over, I apply this to just a few areas like cheeks, forehead, chin

Looks scary in the bottle for fair skin but works great!
Sampled

I got this in a Birchbox, and I'm so glad I did because I probably would never have tried it otherwise, having had some really bad bronzer experiences in the past. The dark-looking pigments make this a really scary looking product in the bottle for those of us with super-fair skin. Then I noticed they're suspended in a gel base, so I ventured forth. Know what? It works! I applied sparingly at first, and it wasn't too dark at all. It went on nicely and was easy to blend, and wasn't streaky in the least. It also didn't leave my face orange, which happened with a lot of bronzers I've tried in the past. The amount of shimmer was the right amount, too without being full-on Vegas glitz. My combination skin liked it, too. My only complaints? Vague instructions took me a minute to figure out whether I was supposed to use facial moisturizer first (I split the difference and used a light one), and having SPF in the product would be a great touch (fortunately my moisturizer has it). As for staying power,it's hard to say because I don't use bronzer on my whole face--just where the sun would highlight-- but it's probably about the same as my normal BB cream. Overall, I was pleased with the results and I'll definitely buy this when the sample runs out!

A little oily, but I use over my Clinique Foundation, which leaves me looking pale. This bronzer gives my skin a bit more life.
