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.

Eeeked out the last bit
Purchased

My first Birchbox contained a full sample of this Stila bronzing product. I eeked out the last bit and went right into my new bottle. I think I would take this to a desert island before foundation. It's really great and no, it's not brown--it just makes you look healthy. I absolutely adore this product.

Cool

At first it was a weird sort of goopy thing that came out but I found that if you pump it a couple times, you can get a better mixture that's more usable to come out so don't give up on it!

Best Bronzer Ever!
Purchased

I've gotten so many compliments on my complexion since I started using this product. My girlfriend at work keeps asking me what my secret is, because my complexion looks great. I have very fair skin with blue undertones, so this product brightens and warms my skin for a natural glow. It definitely blends down, so you don't have to worry much about makeup lines. As part of my daily routine, I apply moisturizer/primer, then Stila One Step, concealer, then Benefit Pore Professional, and finish with ZuZu Luxe Dual Powder Foundation (Whole Foods) and a pink blush.

I want to glow

I loved using this sample and feeling like a rock star. My only issue with it is that I fear my skin tone is just too pale for it to not look ridiculous. If it were more appropriate for my tone I'm sure I'd bump up the stars.

too dark

I love this, but it is too dark for fair skinned women :-( I really wish they made one in a lighter shade. The shimmer is fun and it is super easy to blend. However, I am only able to use it after a spray tan. The contrast is way too noticeable on my natural skin.

Love, love, love it

For a foundation-applying-challenged person, this product is great. I have never been able to apply foundation and feel that I look natural (even when done professionally). This product gives me a light coverage that soaks into my skin versus laying on top. This will always be in my cosmetic case.
Thank You stila

Good primer & bronzer
Purchased

Very light and natural looking. Great primer for foundation. Makes me skin feel smooth. The bronzer feels a little dark for the winter, but its perfect during the summer.

Best gel bronzer ever!!

This was a huge win for me when I got this in my BB! This formulation is light and doesn't streak, and leaves you with an incredible glow. Could not be easier to use. I am VERY FAIR, but this still totally works for me - it's just not something I would use on my WHOLE face. I stick to the cheeks/apples for a gorgeous highlight and glow. A BB cream and this and in the summer, I'm set! This is an awesome product and I personally think this shade could work for ANY skin tone as a bronzey highlight.

Very nice

I got a sample in my June box, and the size was huge! I used it almost everyday for months, it works so well. It starts out a little dark, but once it soaks in, it looks great!

The best liquid all over Bronzer EVER.

I absolutely LOVE this product. I used it all last summer and will buy another this summer when I run out. Just slap it on, conceal problem areas and dust on a little setting powder on problem areas and viola, the perfect bronzer! I have very fair skin, and this soaks in beautifully and doesn't make me look orange or fake, it's not greasy or oily, it's absolutely perfect. I would recommend it to anyone, it's perfection!
