How to Use
Rated 4.64 out of 5 stars
I purchased 01 Sun Light and the name suits the color, perfectly. I use it as blush. I am so fair that most blushes and bronzers make me look like a clown….which I hate. So much that I haven't worn blush for years. The bronzers I've tried have been ORANGE. Orange looks unnatural, dirty/muddy, and cheap. This bronzer builds subtly enabling you to not over apply it and to accommodate 100s of different skin tones and preferences. Bravo! It needs to be applied over powdered skin, in my opinion. ANY powder is going to go on blotchy & too dark over damp/dewy/oily/wet skin. (common sense) If you don't use powder first then apply it over washed & dried skin. I use tinted sunscreen with a setting powder, first, & it glides over it, smoothly. If you want a lot of color then this bronzer is going to require multiple dips and swipes over the same place which I love! Who wants to redo over-applied makeup? I, also use it where my face & hairline meet. It prevents my face from looking so white in contrast to my dark hair. Lastly, I use it across the tip of my chin to shade (shorten) the length of my chin. You can shade (contour) both sides of your nose to make the nose look narrower, too. I just love it. The color 01 Sun Light was masterfully developed! Just perfect. I am going to keep purchasing it. It makes my clothes look so much better on me. I can wear colors that normally wash me out.
I picked this up in 02 Sun Kissed. Loved the description that it's a cool-toned brown bronzer. Sadly, I found that it pulled a lot of red undertones on my skin (light skin with some olive/yellow undertone).
It is "cool" in the sense that it's not a warm orange shade, but it's not a neutral brown either, which is what I was hoping for. I've actually worn this as a subtle blush instead of a bronzing product due to the rosey cast I get from it.
It also goes on a little patchy...not as smooth as I was hoping for. Not the best bronzer I've ever used, and I don't recommend it in all honesty. I usually really like Milani products, but not this one.

First of all - a little bit about my skin. I'm oily, pale skin, some acne, hyperpigmentation, and some scarring. I use the shade Sun Light. This bronzer is my HOLY GRAIL. The reason for that is because it's cool toned enough to almost look like a contour. I like my makeup to be as simple as possible so I rarely do contour AND bronzer. This one really is both for my skin. It's not orange (like most other bronzers) and it glides on like butter. It really is matte so it doesn't accentuate texture. And it smells AMAZING. The scent is light but always makes me think of coconuts and summer vacations. The packaging is also really cute. I hit pan on this and immediately had to go out and buy another one.

Goes on great, and blends beautifully. I like it more than I thought i would. It does have a coconut smell to it, which really isn't my thing, but it doesn't hang around long once applied. Really happy that it has a cooler tone to it, that doesn't look orangey.

the shade 01 sunlight is perfect if you have fair/light skin with yellow undertones. most of the bronzers i've tried have been way too orange on me and didn't look natural at all but this one looks so good on my skin!!
alex from ks
i didn't realize this product was scented because the description did not mention it. should've checked the ingredient list. otherwise the bronzer itself is not bad.

Add warmth to my cool tone skin

This bronzer is a perfect buttery soft powder that blends in so well and gives a great subtle yet effective glow!
Nina from San Francisco
Highly recommend! I ordered Sunkissed and I am a light to medium skin tone. Looks great and warm. Able to use this during the winter months and will try during the summer too. Also this product has a nice texture and sits on the face well.
laynie from West Virginia
i ordered the shade sun-kissed which is supposed to be a cool toned brown, but it is 100% red toned and orange-ish. it's a good bronzer and i love the finish and smell, the color is just not accurate.

Purchased in the shade 02: Sunkissed, and would agree it is a cooler shade that would complement both fair and medium skin tones. However, this is one of those products that users have to "break in"; meaning, you have to use it sparingly and consistently to truly get it to work for you. The color payoff is great, as well as bendability IF you use it over a powdered base. It will not look good used alone over liquid products or with too heavy of a hand. I think they have recently repackaged/reformulated as well. I honestly prefer the older one (which had a smaller text and a different latching mechanism) so if you see that version in stores, pick it up. Still one of the better drug store bronzers I've tried and is most similar to the Maybelline City Bronzer or the Essence Matte Bronzer. Overall, an 8.5/10 and I will continue to repurchase.

It's a okay product. Not very pigmented and hits pan fast.
kat from boston
the color pay off with this is very minimal but somehow it's still hard to blend out. I've found the only way to make this work is to scrape it with the end of a makeup brush and then apply when it is a loose powder. doesn't last very long. if you're really really pale you may have better results
Momo from CA
I cant believe I never tried this sooner, it is the perfect cool tone shade without being too ashy on my light complexion. It blends perfectly too! Way better than physicians formula in my opinion, and the scent is a wonderful light coconut type of scent vs the physicians formula one which is a lot harsher.
Skyler from Florida
I love this bronzer so much. I reach for it more than my NARS bronzer! It smells so good, but still subtle enough to not be irritating. I have to give it a smell every time I use it. It goes on well and blends very easily. It's also buildable! It fits my skin perfectly.
Sara from FL
Gotten the shade sunlight but to light for me so going to purchase sun kissed soon but overall this is bronzer is AMAZING and so glad I finally found a bronzer that I love so much !! And their baked blushes and highlighters are AMAZING well as well !! ❤️

This bronzer is so natural and looks so believable with a soft matte finish. Usually l am disappointed that the other bronzers l've tried have looked too shimmery, too orange or even muddy looking, but this gives me a very soft focus and natural shade for contouring without the sparkle that other brands deliver.
Great product from Idaho
I've tried so many pricey contour palettes such as Kat Von D, Too faced cocoa contour, smash box, and many others. This is so perfect for my skin and never makes me look muddy. It has no break off and you can build it up as much as you'd like.
Morgan from Wisconsin
The shade sun kissed is my holy grail! It's not orange, but it isn't ashy! It suits my fair skin tone so well. It applies like a dream, so smooth never patchy. Truly just the best bronzer I've tried.
productreview from USA
Extremely pressed so very little goes onto the brush. Does not blend. Makes my face look dirty, not bronzed.
Rebecca from Undisclosed
Just around the edges of my face for the perfect blend of sun kissed glow.
Goobergrape from California
I'm new to bronzer but I tried the lightest shade, sun kissed, I have light, olive to neutral skin with a slight golden undertone? it's the best can do to describe it...anyways, the lightest shade is perfect for me even in winter...it's not orange at all on me...I also tried too faced bronzer and that was horrible, very orange...i think some of the low reviews are not because of the product itself being a problem but because maybe the wrong shade was picked? I will be sticking with Milani for sure!
Maria from Undisclosed
Great formula! I prefer the shade Sun Kissed better though. This bronzer formula is one of my all-time favs!
Diana from Boston
I only trust my physicians formula bronzer but this bronzer is my new favorite. I only need this and the physicians formula for the rest of my life. Bronzers are hit or miss but this bronzer is so blendable.

I haven't been able to master the glowing bronze look on my fair to light skin until I found this bronzer. I've been using it with the Milani Soft Focus Glow in shade 01 with the Screen Queen Foundation and my 48 yr old skin has never looked better! I've been on a quest the past few weeks since discovering this product and have purchased a number of other Milani products in the process including the Fruit Fetish line and Weekend Brow. This doesn't give you that striped, scary, harsh look— it's just plain pretty. (And it has a soft vacation scent that doesn't make my throat close or eyes itch!) This makes me feel gorgeous.
I saw this bronzer in an Allie Glines tutorial and had to give it a try. I drove 20 miles because no stores had it in my area for pickup (and discovered a great collection of other finds like the Soft Glow, Fruit Fetish, baked highlighters and plumping glosses!) I have fair to light, dry, sensitive skin with fine lines. This bronzer is gorgeous, subtle color with a scent that makes me feel like I'm on vacation. I bought both shades 01 and 02 for later in the summer. This and the other recent finds from Milani have given me new respect for high quality, lower cost cosmetics.
