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.

Amazing even for a white girl

My skin is very fair and this product gives just the right amount of glimmer and coverage to look awake, and not sickly wintery white! Love it!

Great for a summer glow
SampledPurchased

This is one of my favorite Birchbox finds to date. It's perfect in the summer months for giving a natural-looking glow, and I find that it works great without the need for base on top. The finish is lightweight and won't leave your face feeling or looking cakey.

I wasn't sure exactly what this product was meant to accomplish. I'm not a big fan of the bronzed skin look, but it was cool that this was a full sized product.

I love how this gives my fair skin a nice glow. I put powder over it to make it less shiny.

I loe this product. It is very light and subtle and looks like a natural glow. The sample size has lasted me a very long time. Not oily or greasy.

Gorgeous for night time, but too shimmery for daily use
Sampled

I really think this mimics the slightly reddish tan that I naturally get from laying out in the sun. I alwaysss take this with me on vacation. I only use this at night, though, because there is a gold sparkle in it.

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 liked the texture and ease of this product, but I did not like the color, was a bit too bronze and I did not how it dried on my skin.

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.

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.
