Rated 5 out of 5 by NVCowgirl More Than a Bronzer
I love this product. For me, it covers the flaws in my skin beautifully. The bronzer is not orange looking. It gives my skin a really nice, slightly tan glow. I will continue to re-order this product because for me, it works.

I fully intended to retire this at the end of the summer BUT I just couldn't do it. I use this as my foundation (I'm a "fake" tanner anyway!) and it requires so little and looks flawless!

This is one of the makeup items about which I am most enthusiastic.
One reason I prefer this bronzer is because it is a matte finish--there is no shimmering effect, contradicting the effect for which I use this bronzer to achieve.
Shimmering particles may be an enhancement when a bronzer is intended to be used for an all-over tanning effect on the face or body.
Rather than using this as an all-over bronzer, I use it as as a low-lighter (think of it as the opposite of a highlighter) and I use it in particular places in which I want to create the appearance of recession (i.e., the opposite effect of a highlighter). Bronzers with a shimmering effect lessens the bronzer' effectiveness as a low-lighter.
I apply this just under my chin, and the very slight pouch underneath my chin completely disappears. I blend it under my jawline to give my bone structure a more-distinct contour. Using a cheek brush for better precision, I brush a bit of bronzer in the hollows of my cheeks, under the area on which I apply blush.
Sometimes I sweep a bit of this bronzing powder in the barely-there indentations just above and below my collar bones to enhance them. I am not a slender woman, and my face doesn't look heavy, but my collarbones are almost invisible!
Some women also use this to enhance, or give the appearance, of cleavage.
I have an ivory-to-beige skin tone, am 49, and am sometimes told that I look closer to 40, but those kind comments are becoming more infrequent!
This concludes my review of the bronzer. Now, regarding the packaging--the compact, specifically--it should be made with a sturdier hinge. Drop it once, and it is likely you will be left with a two a two-piece compact. (Though I am pleased that the pressed bronzer itself did not break apart when I dropped it.)
I'd like to see this available in the same type of compact as It Cosmetics bronzer-cheek-highlighter trio, with which I also was also quite pleased.
Rated 3 out of 5 by forever 29 not a bronzer but a great shaper!
This 'bronzer' isn't tan enough for a bronzer BUT it is fabulous for a shaper! I use it in the socket of my eyes, under my jowls to lessen the look of sagging, on my neck to contour & of course under my blush to shape my cheeks.
The brush is amazing...it covers large areas in minimal time!
But if you are looking for a 'bronzer', look somewhere else.
Rated 3 out of 5 by kinu Too subtle for me
I'm am a bronzer fanatic and have been searching for the next great product. After watching numerous It cosmetics presentations I decided to give this one a try. I gave it a fair chance and applied it daily for about a week but just wasn't impressed. There simply isn't enough color payoff for me. The brush however is FABULOUS and I wish I could have kept that but alas back it went. My quest continues.

This too takes a bit of a learning curve - usually with IT products, less is more - however, with this just a couple of swipes it "evens" out my "unevenness" of my neck and decollate skin tones. I did not buy it as a faux tanner - but a way to "sculpt and add definition" to my neck and sometimes face. It's a great way to add definition without a lot of makeup. I like it.
