How to Use
Rated 4.3 out of 5 stars
I got this in 2 shades. Tan Lines and Honey Drip. It's nice go be able to do that because of the price point. I have a Light to Medium skin tone and my skin is dry to normal.
I do not like orangey looking really warm bronzers either in cream or powder. Tan Lines was a little to light for me and had some warmth to it. I much preferred the Honey Drip shade. Although it has honey in its name the shade was a much more neutral color with just a tiny hint of warmth. It was a tad darker and was super flattering. This formula is less creamy then say the Nars, or Mario. It is similar in texture and consistancy to the Patrick Ta cream bronzer thst comes in the duo with the blush.
This lasts pretty much all day. I had no issues with it or even putting a powder bronzer over it. I would definitely recommend these.
If you like the ELf Putty Blush you will like these. Feels like the exact same formula.
I wanted to like this product so much...but unfortunately it was not what i expected and very disappointing. For starters the container is tiny. I would be willing to overlook the amount of product if it was better, but it was just not pigmented at all. I swirled my brush 3 times and all it did was stain my brush. It didn't even transfer to my skin. I'm only giving this 2 stars because I have hope that ELF will upgrade packaging (to be the size of the putty face primer) and improve the formula to be more pigmented.

Here's the deal: The formula is nice, it blends well, and the color is beautiful in pan. The issue? Once applied, it pulls extremely orange. Not sun kissed, orange! It's way too warm to work with unless you already have a serious tan going on. I would love a cooler tone bronzer in a deeper shade. Sadly the orangey warmth makes this basically unusable.

i liked it but makes me break out which is surprising because not many products make me break out, so stopped using it

I wanted to love this. Its super super easy to blend and has really good pigment. My problem with it is that it sets at a powder, i cant add any additional powder on top of it with out moving. I see it getting pretty patchy before my whole makeup is even done. If the formula didnt set to powder i feel like it would be som much better.

I personally not love a bunch of pigment at once so for me it is perfect! Has a buildable amount of pigment and love the shade it got!

They just don't miss with these putty products. I have the primer, blush, and bronzer. All work amazing. Only con is the size of this; not big enough for a blush. For the person who said it was muddy, they probably took a big amount and that makes it muddy fast. I did this today and blended out with a brush, and had to fix it with some foundation. But otherwise, it stayed on all day and I looked great! So easy for on-the-go too.

Definitely looks better blended with a sponge! I would try to use a brush because the putty blush blends nice that way but no. Do not do it. Sponge application only
Vero from Tx
It looks muddy like streaky it's literally the primer formula but it does not blend nicely and it lifts easily not great
Lyss from Lancaster PA
I was SO excited to try the bronzer everyone has been talking about these days and it did not disappoint! I'm not sure why I was expecting this thick sort of pomade like texture but it wasn't like that at all. It's so so easy to work with and it's just glides on perfectly. The only con is the container is small so I'll need to get a different brush to work with this product but it'll be totally worth it! I just wish it was the same size as their primer putties

This product is natural and gives a sunkissed look

Hands-down my new favorite for contouring. Applies easily with a brush, leaves a wonderful wash of color, blends easy, or makes a good base for a powder contour. It lasts all day I love this product.
Reagan from Missouri
It works amazing with a Beauty blender and blends so smooth! Also wasn't orange which is amazing for someone with very fair skin
E from Ohio
Love this! Works great and very easy to blend. Even if you're new to cream products.
Alexa from Dayton
Love how it applies. A dupe for the huda beauty cream bronzer. Wish it was a little more pigmented though.

I have never been into cream bronzer but elf really got me into it!

I'm not sure if it's the oils in this or what but it broke me out! I used it to cream contour my nose as well and never break out there and the next day I had a painful zit right on the top of my nose. Not worth it for me.
Mesha from Kansas
I have the color bronzed belle and I love it. It has a nice neutral olive warm undertone and gives me a beautiful bronzed look. My only con is it doesn't last long after a few hours it fades away.
Mary from Wisconsin
It's a nice cream bronzer that I don't need to set. It looks very natural and easy to blend. I use my beauty blender to apply and it looks amazing. It has t slipped around with any of my foundations. Really good for the price!!
Jaz from Bronx, NY
Beautiful product. I just need to repurchase with one shade darker for my summer, tanned skin.
I bought tan lines which I will save for either my no-makeup, makeup days, and the winter months.

i didn't really like it:(
L from Evansville
I got the shade Tan Lines but I will probably get a darker shade next time. It blended really easily and didn't really have a particularly strong scent which is definitely a plus.

I was so excited to try this and I love ELF but it was not pigmented at all and would disappear when blended in.
Hannah J. from Usa
Isn't too warm, perfect bronze color. I'm new to bronzer, have never used it before besides butter bronzer like once and this is nice, good formula too. May have to swirl your finger and warm it up after it's been sitting a while to get pigment like I have to do with the putty blushes. Overall, impressed!!
Kiki from Texas
If you wear foundation, this may not work for you. It becomes hard to blend and it can lift foundation and give you some texture. This works best on more "natural makeup days."
Daisy from Az
I've tried it on my face without foundation and the product blended nicely on my skin! I do kinda go for the natural look and only use concealer and some blush & this bronzer was really nice and I only used a little bit of it!
