Rated 4.38 out of 5 stars
My new favourite bronzer its super soft, pigmented, blend-able, buildable, and smells soooooo good. Plus its so affordable compared to other bronzers of the same quality, will definitely be purchasing it again!
I was super excited about this bronzer after seeing some of my favorite beauty gurus recommend it as a cost-effective dupe for higher end alternatives like Fenty. The color is great and it went on smooth. It also lasted all day. The problem? It caused severe, cystic pimples in the areas where I applied it. I gave it a few days to be sure, but I am convinced it is this product. The zits are literally lined up in the areas where I brushed this on (lower cheeks and temples). I checked the ingredients list and dimethicone (a silicone based element that is terrible for acne prone skin) is the third ingredient! While dimethicone is hard to avoid in many cosmetic powders, it is rarely that high on the list. For comparison, dimethicone is number 8 or less in Bare Minerals, ABH, and Fenty bronzers. I will try Bare Minerals next since that brand has been really good for my acne prone skin thus far. I hate to spend $20 more, but my skin can't take this product. I hope Maybelline reworks this formula.

I can't say a bad thing about this product! This powder is light, and blends like a dream into the skin. I think this is one of the best drugstore bronzers I have found. I am very fair skinned- especially in the winter and I have a hard time with bronzers being too orange or unnatural looking on me. I do not have that issue with the light shade of the city bronzer!

I was almost out of my old bronzer and then found out the color had been discontinued. I went to Ulta with my old bronzer compact open and did pan-to pan comparisons of other bronzers to find a similar shade. Maybelline City Bronzer in its deepest shade (300) looked as close as I could find. After purchasing and applying it the next day, I saw that the color was nowhere near my old bronzer shade. On my skin, the color was a light red with light gold shimmer. It was pretty, but it looked like a blush/highlighter instead of a bronzer. Maybelline, please add a BFOWN-toned bronzer to your line. Sadly, I had to return the product.

This is honestly one of my all time favorite bronzers. I have mine in shade 200 and it is perfect for when I get a bit lighter in the winter. It blends out nicely and is easy to build up. If your thinking of trying it, give it a try! :)

I used up my city bronzer in the shade 100, and I really like it. I had bought it when they launched. It was a bit light for me so I had to layer it up. Since it was light I bought the 200 shade to replace my used up 100 shade. This now has sparkles in it and isn't matte like they used to be! The old one had ZERO sparkle, it was truly matte. Idk if they changed formulas or had manufacturing issues?? But very disappointed with it. Will be returning.

i'm very picky about bronzer, this one is so cool toned and actually makes u look bronzed instead of orange! i love it!
Kiwi from FL
I got the light 100. Love the smell. Easy to blend. I consider more of a contour than bronzer since the shade looks neutral to me, at least on my skin tone.

I prefer the color, scent and application of the Milani Silky Matte Bronzer. I saw this in a YouTube tutorial and thought I'd give it a try, but I'm going to return it.

This bronzer is as good as expensive brands.
Ashley from Spartanburg
Never had any problems with it, it looks amazing on fair skin tones!
Don't buy this from Ulta
Shade 100 is YELLOW! and doesn't blend too well. So much kick back powder when you dip your brush in the pan.
Lulu from Manhattan
Overall the city bronzer is great
Very bendable and sorta like a baked cream
Shade 200 has a orange hint but can be fixed with concealer
The smell is nice it smells like a rich grandmas house lol
Ameyaa from Santa Clara
These used to be so much more natural when they came out. They're so gray now. Very difficult to blend out and not flattering on all skin.
The ELF bronzer is far more superior.
mar0 from Egypt
it's really good but it doesn't stay very long and pls make more darker shades. overall soo good
SB from Texas
100 is the perfect shade for for my fair skin during the winter months. It's buildable, easy to blend, and not patchy at all.

It's okay. It doesn't blend as seamlessly like the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer. It's not matte so I'm not a big fan of it
Faith from New Hartford NY
Not too glittery, solid, does the job. Mabeline in general is becoming a go to brand for me. Can't beat the quality for the price.
Hi from FL
I have the deep shade from nyx. The maybelline 300 city bronzer is the same color
It is so orange tan. Ek. Why can't drugstore bring more deep shade for colour people.
HC2020 from Tennessee
I'm very pale... very lol. The shade 200 is still lighter than I'd like. It has a very yellow undertone on me, which doesn't look quite right. But what I really don't enjoy is how sparkly it is. I enjoy a glowy bronzer (too faced sweet tea bronzer is one of my favorites), but this is sparkly which I don't enjoy.
mallory from usa
easy to blend and a pretty good color since it's hard to find bronzers light enough because I'm so pale
olivia from Virginia
Okay. I'm excited. WOW. I've been on the hunt for the perfect bronzer for my light olive skin tone for what feels like forever, and I can finally say that I found my PERFECT bronzer!! The shade 200 has a slight yellow/mustard-y undertone that perfectly mimics the color that I turn when I get tan. A lot of drugstore bronzers are too cool-toned (and look ashy on me) or too red/orange (and look unnatural because I don't sunburn). If you have a light-medium olive/yellow skin tone, YOU NEED THIS!! (Side note: I got too excited talking about the color, but the formula is amazing too! Very very easy to blend and never looks muddy!!)
Mc from Syracuse ny
I was excited to use this product as I was looking for a bronzer with a bit more payout and contouring effect. The color looked great in the package but when I went to use it, there was so much fall out and the color did not remotely resemble the color of the packaging. It was very orange and patchy. I regret buying this for my skin tone, but if you're looking for something more orange and bright this would work well. Just not for what I'm trying to do.

I am so white it's not even funny and I can use the darkest shade without looking bad. Do better. Oh AND y'all are being exclusive gender wise too? Do better fr at least give me the option to put non binary on this review.
