Personal Experience: you have three colours to choose from, it is very hard to tell as on screen the colour beige-medium looks dark in real life it is really light. The bronzing powder comes in a sturdy piano black compact great to bring out on the go and has a decent size mirror. The white sponge keeps the powder transferring to the mirror. The powder is baked so it is really long lasting and doesn’t crumble a big plus for me. The colour itself failed to show up on my skin, as you can see from my swatches the powder produces a slight shimmer and works well to highlight my cheeks. As a bronzer it didn’t make my skin look tanned or bronze. I had to put a few layers on to make it show up on my face, I usually like to use a bronzer as a contour for cheeks.

Would I re-purchase again? Yes, if I get to try the darker shade as it is long wearing and the product will last me a long time
