Most Helpful Positive Review lightweight, wearable cream bronzer
I was thrilled to receive this cream bronzer as i have been trying to find make up that wont end up looking like mud and dirt in the texas heat. I now work outdoors and have had to change my make up routine to accommodate globs of sunscreen on my already oily face. I needed something that would look like my skin and blend well, as well as fade evenly into the day (as opposed to patches of make up either coming off or pooling into creases). So far, cream blushes have worked to give my face a healthy flush as well as work as eyeshadow. The Anastasia BH Cream Bronzer is what i just need to give myself a little contour without all the fuss. I received the shade Amber and i currently have light-medium skin, neutral undertones. It's a tad too orange for me but still workable and it blends really well on top of my sunscreen and concealer (no foundation), giving me a sun-kissed healthy look. I haven't used it on its own without my cream blush but i think that it would look great on its own as well on days when im running late. It fades evenly off my sweaty, spf slicked face without making it too obvious that i have been wearing make up. I only blot my face with tissue throughout the day. Reapplying sunscreen on top of it doesnt muddy the whole look either, tho it fades it significantly but that's understandable because i dont even set it with powder. I do use a setting spray. I dont go heavy upon initial application, i build it up according to how much I expect to be able to get away with maintaining a natural look for the day. I find that going heavy at first makes you try to erase/remove it and have to rework it on your face as opposed to using small amounts and working up to your desired look. Ive also used this as an eyeshadow which caked onto my crease, but again, i did not set with powder. That said, i think this will be a staple for me this summer. Thank you @anastasiabeverlyhills and @influenster for letting me try this product!
Most Helpful Critical Review Good but shade range is off
I was so excited about this because Anastasia makes so many great products and I loved their cream contour palette. I tried this out with a brush and a sponge. With the brush, it didn't blend as easy but was still able to make it look good. The sponge is definitely the way to go, made it easy to apply and faster to blend. The formula is more of a thicker cake that melts into the skin as it is applied. It also wore all day without fading, moving, cracking, or looking dry/oily. That being said, I found it just worked decently for me. I have used creamier products that were easier to blend. The biggest problem is the range in shade and tones. I'm fair with neutral tones and the lightest formula applied very orange. I wish they had a neutral or even cool tone selection to give a natural looking bronze on my fair complexion. I can see this product working well for others though, because it is a decent product. I do want to add that I've been working in the beauty Industry for 5+ years so I have had my fair share with bronzers from many different brands. I received this product complimentary, however my review is my own opinion.

I love that it is very creamy and it blends very easily and dries on its own. Also, the colors are very good and combine with all skin tones.
Neens from Seattle
Amazing product. I highly recommend it. It's so easy to blend.
love the color
gwen from nj
I have very fair slightly warm/yellowish undertone, and all the cream bronzers I have tried pull far too orange on my skin. This shade is exactly what I was hoping for, especially for winter. The formula is wonderful, blends so seamlessly! I am so happy I finally purchased!
A little too orange
Amber L. from MN
It's a little more orange than I thought it would be. Other than that, it's great!
Ambs from undisclosed
I thought it was the same color from the cream contour palette but it's not or maybe it's not as pigmented? Idk but i rather just buy the palette over again, since i use 2 shades from there, it cost about the same as 2 of these
Erinomal from Houston, TX
I totally love it! It blends so well and I can just blend it in with my fingers
Mellany from Richmond, VA
Love this bronzer! Very creamy and easy to apply. Long lasting as well! Will definitely be repurchasing!
Ok formula, but way too orange
Jaleb from KY
I have light medium skin with olive undertones and purchased the shade amber. It's so orange on me. Sad because I really like how easy this is to blend.
Cecesan from Hawaii
I got the bronzer because i heard that the famous C***** had changed it's formula, so i decided to give this a try.... OMG! I'm glad a did got the shade amber great for my neutral undertone, i have light to light-medium skin tone, it wears beautifully, i really don't know why people are not talking about this bronzer.!!
The creamy consistency makes
yolindao from undisclosed
The creamy consistency makes blending so simple. I have used this on many looks and each look came out great!!
Doesn't remove foundation!!!
Flor B from Minnesota
I got it in shade amber for the soft bronzing effect, it's very long lasting whether you set it with powder or not. I like to use it with a sponge ❤️
karenloves from undisclosed
This bronzer is great all by itself blended out with a brush. I don't like it added to my foundation bc it's too thick along with foundation. It takes some buffing out to blend. I prefer a powder or liquid bronze instead. In fact, Anastasia has a great liquid bronzer I add to my foundation and it's a dream! This one hits the mark alone but that's it. A bit too thick.
Seamless Formula, Limited Range
Ashlyn L. from Owasso, OK
This formula performs seamlessly and beautifully on the skin! However, the shade range is not ideal for anyone with fair skin or cool undertones. I'm fair with rosy undertones and the lightest shade available is still way too orange/warm for my complexion. I hope they expand the shades on both sides of the spectrum because the formula itself is so buttery and blends with little effort! I would skip out on this current range if warm tones don't suit you.
This is a must-have
Zozo from Boston
I love pairing this bronzer with my Anastasia foundation. So blendable and just the right amount of pigment.
Colors not as described
Sam from Florida
I love the texture of this product. It is very light and creamy and blends well on the skin. However, I am not pleased with the color which I find yellow orange and extremely warm for a shade described as neutral. I purchased sunkissed which depth wise is probably the right shade for lighter skin tones but I find this shade looks orange and unnatural on my my neutral toned skin. Neutral skin requires a bit more of a rosy bronze to be natural looking. This is not it. Will probably have to return this. If you can find an appropriate shade this is a nice product.
Super cream bronzer.
Rubyred from Pharr,Texas
Cream of this bronzer is magnificent. Would not change a thing on that. Melts easy and blends easy on my 48 yr old skin. Love the way it looks. Just one thing color for my skin needs a bit more. I found it light. Yet in all nothing but super great!!!!
Elizabeth S from NJ
This pairs soooo well with the Anastasia Beverly Hills luminous foundation. It was so easy to blend out. I absolutely love this product. I always struggle to get a good cream contour or bronzer or any bronzer to work well on my forehead and this made my skin look so beautiful. I 100% recommend.
a little meh…
fayal from undisclosed
I love their powder formula and was very excited about it in a cream form. But it was a little underwhelming. It was very subtle, and while buildable, I'd choose another cheaper brand that I think would be comparable. Ok, but not as stellar as their powders…
Light, Beautiful Finish
cruisinwithj from undisclosed
First time with a cream application for a bronzer. The finish was luminous and provided a subtle glow. It was easy to blend and works great for a contour. Overall I would purchase again.
christyxo from undisclosed
This bronzer is so pretty. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about a cream bronzer considering I use powder, but I actually love it! It's so easy to blend, and just looks amazing on the skin.
Great Formula, Weird Shade
tashpalmerofficial from undisclosed
First, let's talk about the formula. Perfect amount of pigmentation and blended out very easily. Overall I enjoy the formula.
Next, let's talk about shade - yikes! I got the shade Sun Kissed which is said to be for my skin tone; fair to light with neutral undertones. This was straight up yellow, almost green. It made me look sickly. I love a cool tone bronzer, but this wasn't it - not even close. I've never had a color be so off for me. With that said, I think if you have a very yellow (warm) undertone or olive skin you *might* like this shade, but idk... I was shocked at how "un-wearable" this was for me. They really need to update their description for who this shade is for and create some undertones that are more flattering. Hopefully other skin tones had a better match.

loved the texture but not the color
brierr from undisclosed
I received this product free for testing purposes. First, I want to say that I love the texture of this bronzer! It is so buttery and smooth but dries down pretty matte. It didn't accentuate my pores or dry skin. However, the color is much too yellow for my skin tone. I have very pink undertones so this just looked like I smeared honey butter on my face. I think if I used a different color it would be fine. I think I will use it more of a cream shadow instead of an actual bronzer. It also looks like a cute little jar of chocolate-peanut-butter-goodness.
Hint of Sun-kissed color
christinamarie from undisclosed
I like this product a lot. I don't use bronzer often, but this gives just a hint of a warm sun-kissed glow to my fair skin. The creamy formula didn't feel overly heavy on my skin and blended nicely.
amazing cream bronzer
ralitsa from undisclosed
I love loooove this bronzer. I got the shade golden tan and it matches me perfectly. Formula wise it's amazing. I never had a cream bronzer I really liked until I tried this one. It's so easy to blend. I use a brush to apply and blend it. It gives me the prettiest bronze glow and I love it. I highly recommend.
Creamy formula, but wrong shade
melissa_eec from undisclosed
Unfortunately, golden tan was not ghe right shade for me so my experience wasnt fully positive. The shade didnt work for me to use as neither contour nor bronzer since the color just dissapeared on my skin and wasnt noticible. However, I will share the formula is very creamy and easy to use.
