Most Helpful Positive Review Soft, buttery, easy to apply with beautiful pigmentation
This bronzer promises to be Buxom's first two-toned, primer-infused powder bronzer with a smooth & easy blending power to bring you that perfect sun kissed shine to your skin. I love how buttery soft & smooth this bronzer is! The color I chose is a mixture of light tan in the middle surrounded by a bigger circle of a golden brown. Both colors show up well on me with a hint of shimmer to them without being unnatural. Did I mention this bronzer truly blends like a dream? Due to the buttery softness of this bronzer's formulation it goes on easily allowing you to build up the color or blend it out for a natural finish which I really love it. I am applying this bronzer by mixing the two colors but you can choose to apply one or the other depending on what your taste is. The bronzer also has a nice & subtle sunscreen screen. I find it pleasant but I don't know of it's a deliberate choice or something I unconsciously associate with summertime & bronzed skin. Overall, I am in love with this bronzer. As a contour newbie I find this easy to use, soft & buttery, with natural & beautiful pigmentation. 5.0/5.0
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for me
First things first, I'm a brown skinned girl. The color that I select and received was too light for me to use as a bronzer. However, the consistency was nice, the pigmentation wasn't all the way there despite it being too light for my skin tone. I swatched it on a piece of paper and it still wasn't very pigmented. I still put it on my face so that you could get an idea of how it looks though(even though you can barely see it). If you're very light skinned this would work well for you, but the shade ranges aren't very accommodating for darker skinned girls.

I have fair skin so it's hard to find a bronzer that won't look too harsh or orange. However when I tried this bronzer I found exactly what I was looking for! I got the shade rooftop tan it's so perfect for my skin tone. It applies subtly but it's buildable so if it's too sheer for you that's okay because you make it more fit for you. The color is gorgeous, very glowy and natural but just enough bronze. It's glowy in a radiant way, not shimmery or glittery. Super blendable and looks like a natural yet glam contour/bronze. It lasts for a long time too. Idk if all that's cause of the primer in it, but whatever it is, I've never used a bronzer so
good before. Totally recommend.

The shimmer in the middle is unnecessary, but fun. The bronzer applies smoothly and with a good pigmentation. It can be sheered out nicely on the skin. The backyard bronze shade is not orangey on my fair cool toned skin. I like this as an everyday bronzer and use a light hand.
Ashley G from New Jersey
I have tried every bronzer from every brand and this is definitely one of my favorites. It gives a natural bronze color and the primer makes it a one step application. Just brush some on and it makes your skin look flawless. Would highly recommend.
So orange but stayed all day!!
Maegan from Austin
I have fair skin with warm undertones and this bronzer was straight up orange on my skin. I'm going to try the darker, cooler toned one because it did last all day long.
Perfect bronzer for sun kissed look
JC from Idaho
Easy to apply, beautiful natural color, stays put all day.
SUCH a BEAUTIFUL Bronzer!
Danielle F from Florida
I knew I was going to love this bronzer because I have the blushes and they're the ONLY blushes I use. The color + tone of this bronzer is perfect! I normally do not like warm bronzers, but this one is the perfect warm tone. It is not matte it's very glowy, but not glittery. It's my new go to summer bronzer!
Smooth and pretty!
Stella A from Kyle, TX
I am a huge fan of the buxom primer infused blushes and I knew this would be just as good. They really did well on their formula- it blends effortlessly and looks so pretty on the skin. There's a subtle sheen that's so perfect for summer.
L'Oréal lumi bronzer is better
Makeupjunkie25 from FL
I returned this bronzer. I'm a medium neutral complexion and this made me look dirty, not bronzed. I purchased the golden one. It also didn't stay where I put it hence why I looked dirty. I gave it 2 stars because it looks pretty at first. Disappointed :(
Absolutely love this bronzer
Mia from Westchester
Beat bronzer I have used! I have medium skin and it's so beautiful , makes my skin look flawless , theres no kickback , it's not blotchy, blends like a dream!
First time but definitely the last
Beck from San Francisco
I use this bronzer everyday it's the perfect color! Beautiful finish
stacy from New York
This is disappointing. What is this shade range? Why are there only two colors? This will not bronze my deep skin and with everything going on, its saddening that even makeup is only usually suited to a lighter skinned audience. Incredibly disappointed.
glowy but not glittery
Kim C. from Los Angeles
Honestly this is my new holy grail. I have oily skin and tend to use a matte foundation during the summer but don't want to look dehydrated. I always want a subtle glow to bring my face back to life and this is it. This is super pigmented, has no glitter chunks, and blends very well. I'm an NC20-NC30 and got the darkest shade. I use a light hand and a medium sized fluffy face brush and it's magic. It's smooth and not powdery. I love this and think everyone should give it a try. Packaging feels like good quality too. The plastic isn't flimsy and it does have some weight to it too. It also have a light scent that you can't smell once it's on your face. I have sensitive skin to fragrance and I have had no reactions. Overall a great bronzer.
Packaging is deceiving
LAgirl88 from Lower Alabama
The actual formula of this product is good but it's just an all over average bronzer. Plus it has almost the same amount of product in it that the Buxom blushes have yet the packaging in like 3 times the size. It is deceiving and I will be returning
Amazing bronzer.. MUST HAVE
Rosebud from Utah
I got the shade backyard bronze & it's a perfect bronzer for my olive toned complexion..! It's soo smooth, no glitter, but lasts all day. It's way blendable and buildable and not patchy. It really is an amazing bronzer!!!
What I've been looking for
Mags from TN
Little did I know this is what I've been looking for. I have been looking for a long time for a bronzer I would just fall head over heels for; and trust me-I've tried a lot. I put this on [backyard] and boy did I FALL IN LOVE. I fall in the light to medium skin range and tan in the medium range. I think the color is wonderful and have to use a slightly lighter hand as I think the color payoff is a little more than what some are saying. The package is gorgeous, a little bulky, but lovely. I love it and can't wait to put it on again tomorrow!
Mel from Texas
beautiful color for my medium skin tone I bought the backyard bronze and it looks amazing blendable and long lasting is what really amazed me recommend

Lizzy from Houston, TX
I love the subtle golden shimmer and luminous finish of this bronzer. Definitely get the backyard bronze vibes with this, a new favorite! It glides on the skin smoothly without patchiness, blending seamlessly. I have been raving to all my friend who have asked me how I got my glow! :)
Blends like dream
Classic Beauty from Chicago illinois
Beautiful and finely milled. It blended and buffs into my skin so nicely. The shade that I received was so beautiful and the packaging is beautiful as well
Tasha from Huntsville
This is an awesome bronzer, great staying power. Wish it came a tad bit darker but overall very nice!
Schay19 from Rochester, NY
This bronzer is BOLD. Absolutely loved it, especially with my skin tone and the shade of foundation I use. It blends seamlessly and does not leave any harsh lines when transitioning into your blush on the cheekbone. Lots of pigmentation, and smooth as butter.
Court from Indiana
This bronzer is absolutely amazing!! It's soft and goes on nicely. It is lighter but buildable and looks amazing no matter how you have it. It gave my skin the perfect sun kissed glow! I got so many compliments. It blends out really nicely so it looked almost natural. I am in love!!
I was able to do it for a light makeup day and it looked flawless. I also could add more later for a more dramatic, night out look and it was perfect! I really think this could work for anyone. It wears well and lasts all day without fading or smudging. At the end of the day it looked like I had just applied it! It's amazing!
Lee from Tennessee
This is a really good bronzer. Even though I have stayed inside a lot lately it gives me a very sun kissed look! It goes on smooth and there is no fallout.
All right bronzer
Xzxz13 from nY
If I am being completely honest, the bronzer was too dark and pigmented for my skin tone. It also did not blend well. It has an orangey tone to it.
The best new bronzer!
AshMcA from Stillwater
I am so in love with this bronzer! Perfect, buildable shade for my fair/medium skin. Blends GREAT with blush and other powders as well. I absolutely love Buxom products and this is truly another great product from them. Also, AMAZING as a darker shade for contouring! Stayed on all day; no issues with smearing in the slightest! Cannot recommend this bronzer enough for basically ANYONE!
Mlopez221 from Los Angeles, CA
It's a nice color but it doesn't go on the skin smoothly. It stays in one place.
