Most Helpful Positive Review This stuff is amazing!
I am an IT girl all the way. I love most of the products and only use a few things from other lines. For over 10 years I have used Nars Laguna or Tarte's Amazonian Clay in Park Avenue Princess. For years yall! And I have been happy with them. So let me set the stage. I go to Ulta to get some bronzer (Tarte). I see this bronzer. I ran to Ulta looking a bit of a mess so decided to throw on a bit of this bronzer to beautify. First of all, it smells like the beach. It has a tiny hint of coconut and I was into it! Second of all, this looks natural. I mean for real. I look like I have been on the beach. Most bronzers will add some color and bronze you up, but I feel like it looks like a bronzer. Not in a bad way, but I don't often mistake someone's bronzer for a day at the beach. This stuff looks like a tan. Second of all, hours pass and it still looks good. It still looks natural. It didn't oxidize or turn streaky. So what do I do? I return to Ulta the next day and exchange the Tarte bronzer for this one. I haven't looked back. I absolutely LOVE this bronzer. I feel like it looks so perfect. It gives you a beachy glow. Now if you are looking to do some Kardashian style contouring I don't know if this would work because I don't apply it like that, but it probably would be fine. Last thing. I use a Clinique brush to apply. I have almost all IT brushes but for this stuff, I use the Clinique Foundation buff brush (Item 2299840). It was suggested to me by a store employee once for bronzer and I really love the control it gives me and it buffs out really well, too. For reference, in IT foundations I am a medium or now with the new colors added to the line, a medium tan. So there you have it. Buy this stuff, it is really great. I bought 4 just incase they discontinue it or something terrible.
Most Helpful Critical Review Algae Extract Means No Purchase
So I wanted this bronzer so badly, but as with the rest of It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Collection, this too contains Algae Extract. This is one of the most comedogenic ingredients. It is the one ingredient that breaks me out no matter how little is in the product. And it can also go by different names, but not for this bronzer- it says in the ingredients Algae Extract. I think this is usually used to add moisture, but I'm not sure why they would use an ingredient in an item for pores that will surely clog a lot of people's up! Very disappointing since this bronzer is absolutely beautiful. Just when I thought I may have found a Holy Grail...NOPE :(

This bronzer turns to hard pan very quickly. It's so strange. Don't waste your money.
Heatherinlaw from Alabama
Smells amazing... HELLO COCONUT and the look is not shiny or glittery like a lot of bronzers.
Love the product - wish it would last longer than 3 weeks
Cat from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
I love this product - great color for me, goes on very nicely - BUT - it ran out in 3 weeks.

Brooke from Lakeland Florida
This bronzer smells good and it looks so nice on my cheeks. I will keep buying this product!
Modest from MA
This bronzer has a strong scent of coconut. It applied nicely just a couple of times and then got a hard layer on surface and didn't work any more. Even after removing this top layer it wouldn't apply well. What a waste of money!
I have many bronzer but i always come back to this one.
Lizeth1991 from Brownsville Tx
Simply the best bronzer, covers my pores like it says it should! Like Amazing, and i love it. Cant leave with out it!
No shimmer and barely any color
Sofie K from IL
I asked for a recommendation at the store for a shimmery bronzer. This was definitely not shimmery when I put it on. There wasn't much picking up on the brush when I applied.
Ky from Peoria
If you have any acne scarring or texture this line is for you! I will say if you have a super warm skin tone you won't like this color as much it's a little bit on the cooler side, but so smoothing!
Lulu65 from Bremerton WA
I use this to add color as the medium CC cream is a tad too light. It evens my skin out, looks flawless and is easy to apply.
Kariep from Raeford, NC
This product is so orange even my husband said something about how awful it looked. I have very fair skin, so maybe a different skin tone could use it. But fair ladies, stay far, far away!
I love it this bronzer!
Laura from Fort Myers
Just in love with my bronzer
Doesn't come out of the pan
Jk from Wa
I think I got a dried out defective one. Brush doesn't work. Fingers don't even work. Can't get this stuff out of the pan! Waste of money
Heidi from Portland OR
The product is nice and light weight but yet delivers a great bronze and color
Not the best
Grim from Houston
The color in the pan isn't the color applied. It's very orange-y. And I can't see any pore minimization. It does have a shimmer to it though. And after the third use it broke in the pan. Very poor quality for the price point. But I had to try it. Won't purchase again.
I like it (dry and pale skin)
Ireland from Kentucky
This is probably the only bronzer I like that's not matte, I usually prefer matte ones but this one just looks so natural and smooth on my skin (dry, pale skin) I don't know if it really does anything for my pores but it does what any other bronzer will do! It's worth a try if you like glowy bronzers
Lisa from Pennsylvania
This is the only bronzer I've ever found that I can wear without feeling like a clown had painted my face! I'm pretty fair-skinned, and this bronzer goes on like a whisper. It never feels heavy or cakey. It "layers" well, so I can apply just a hint if I'm going bare-faced that day.
Don't know yet.
Sunshine from MA
I do like the product but do not notice any pore minimization as it claims.
bree from LA
i like it, it goes on well and smooth and lasts all day expect that it's a bit orange 🥺 other than that it works well !
I love this bronzer but ALWAYS BREAKS
Amandaep13 from NY
I have to be honest, despite this always breaking on me I still purchase it. However I've about has it. Once I bought it broken, another it broke randomly without being dropped. Now I just bought it again and it broke when I dipped my makeup brush into it. Its very poorly made. I wish they could fix the product packaging because it really is great!
Bright and confident bronzer.
Kathy from Trinity Florida
This is a product I don't like to go without. Brightens face from a little in the eyes. and cheeks nice to forehead. Should be tried just once.
Misty from TN
This is wonderful. Makes completion look beautiful and warmed up.Not muddy at all.Gorgeous glowing skin.I have had so many compliments on my complexion when wearing.I use this and a tiny bit of the bye bye pores blush the warm peach color.I live it!Also it smells like coconuts.The smell doesn't bother me but if u are sensitive to scents I could understand how u may not like it.I love the smell personally. Very tropical.
Best bronzer ever!!
Leslie from Austin, Tx
This is one of the best bronzers I've ever used! It smells like summer but also gives me a tanned look (not too bronzed and shimmery like most other bronzers. I use this as my lightweight makeup during the summer or after I have gotten a lot of sun, I can also mix it with my loose powder I use when I want more coverage. I have had the same case for about 8 months and it has never broken. Sounds like with shipping it is thrown around, but mine has stayed intact this whole time and it's almost finished!
Kw from Savannah
Ordered for pickup it was completely smashed. The guy tried to replace it with another one, all the other ones they had in the store were also smashed. I swatched the loose powder and there was no pigment, just a light shimmer you could barely see. The loose translucent bye bye pores is really good though.
