"Create a healthy looking glow all year round! The sheer soft powders provide the perfect hue of color. Blend all 4 colors together to achieve a blend of perfection or choose your favorite color or colors to mix, match and blend.

Golden Bronzer- An illuminating shimmer that is subtle and radiant. Ideal for summer or year-round. " --from

I bought this when I was seriously getting into makeup and wanted to try to find a nice bronzer for contouring. I`m naturally tan so I need a bronzer than is darker than my skin rather than one that is my skin color. I found this at Target for $3 but can be bought on their website or at Kmart for the same price (plus shipping if bought online). I didn`t know that the Golden Bronzer would have so much shimmer in it but I should of expected it from the name. I decided to keep and use it because I felt for $3 I could get some use out of it so it won`t be a total waste. It wasn`t until I looked up their other bronzers that I saw they had a matte one (in Cool) which I plan on getting if they ever carry it in stores or if I do a haul from their website.
Personally I hate shimmer in my bronzer or any face makeup. Since I have oily skin I don`t need this extra shine of my face, but I do like to use this as eyeshadow. I swatched them on my arm and took pictures in natural light and with flash. They are really pretty to use for the summer. The texture is smooth and they blend well. The bottom left color is an amazing highlighter color.

<dd>- Versatile; Great as eyeshadow</dd>
<dd>- Good for those who love shimmer</dd>
<dd>- Adds warmth to your face for a nice healthy glow</dd>
<dd>- Affordable for $3 you get a good amount of product</dd>
<dd>- Mirror it comes with is large and great for travel</dd>
<dd>- Available in a matte set (Cool Bronzer)</dd>

<dd>- Too much shimmer for me to use as bronzer</dd>
<dd>- The shimmer can get messy if I`m using fingers to apply</dd></dl>

<strong>Overall:</strong> I love using this for highlighter and as eyeshadow but not as a bronzer. The colors are warm so they`re great to use for the summer and it`s affordable.
<strong><em>Rating</em></strong>: A-
<em>Repurchase?</em> I may repurchase the Warm or Golden because of the highlighter color but most likely I"ll get it in Cool.
