– Innovative packaging with the “dial-up” grinder
– Easy to use
– You “freshly” mill the powder you want
– Paraben and Cruelty Free
– Doesn’t settle into fine lines
– No caking/blotching
– A lot of product!
– Matte bronzer

– Can get messy if you’re not careful
– Expensive for a bronzer
– Can look muddy if you do not blend out very well
As you can see the Pros totally outweigh the Cons. It was very long lasting and when I blended it very well, it didn’t look muddy, but gave my skin the perfect sun kissed glow. Perfect for this spring (and upcoming summer) season – I don’t look as dull as I did during the winter months.
I love the packaging and how you can “grind” how much product you want. this type of packaging reminds me of the NYX HD Blushes. it can get messy if you accidentally grind out too much. I wish it had a sifter or cover of some sort so it wouldn’t get messy. I do like how it does have a mirror so you can use it on the go (but the packaging would be a bit too bulky to carry in a clutch)
Overall, I am impressed with the packaging and the formulation of this product. I also love how it is paraben and cruelty free! If you are in the market for a new bronzer, I definitely would recommend this one if you have the extra money to spend on a bronzer of this price range. It looked flawless when applied, very natural looking (of course with a light hand) and it lasted throughout the day for me (I am combo/oily skin by the way). It didn’t fade on me (my cheeks are dry) and It did not appear cakey or blotchy (which was a big plus for me).
