I'm suuper pale but the Light Sand one looked like it was gonna be too pale for me so I opted to go for Summer. It is beautiful. It is a beautiful rich warm brown and it is not scary to use. I use a real techniques short bristle brush to dip in and put on my cheeks. It is perfect for cream bronzers like this one. This bronzer can pack a punch if you put too much on the brush but it does blend out nicely. I tend to put on the bronzer first and then put on my blush. If I put on my blush first, the bronzer can be a bit patchy because my blushes are also cream/balmy so the bronzer doesn't stick to areas there is already cream/balm blush. It will be PERFECT for the summertime and for when I have a bit of a tan going on later in summer/fall. I would buy this again, but it will definitely be a long time before that happens due to how much is in the container (it's insane how much product you get!! love it!!). It is fun for me to apply and for me, it has good staying power. I personally don't expect cream products to stay all day but this one is really nice and still adds warm to my face by the end of the day. It does fade slightly but it's still there.
I wouldn't even call this a cream, it is more like an oil. It is patchy and the colors are awful. It never dries down which would be okay, but it is so sticky and you can feel it on your face. I ended up tossing mine.

Such a good tone. Subtle and beautiful. Not greasy either

I don't understand the mixed reviews of this on youtube. I never leave reviews and HAD to for this bronzer. I think it is the best product pacifica has ever made. I apply it with a stippling brush and it just melts into the skin. The color Summer is gorgeous on my light neutral skintone. It is a warmer bronzer than my other bronzer i have (makeup my mario transforming skin perfector in light) and though the shade is different for me. I'm in love. And i think it is an almost spot on dupe for the jones road gel bronzer in medium that i've had my eye on. So glad i tried this instead. Please never discontinue. I know some reviews on youtube mentioned the product freling grainy. If you do feel it in your container just rub your finger over the product. ANY GRAINY FEELING IS FROM THE AIRY TEXTURE OF THE PRODUCT IT DOES NOT TRANSLATE TO BRUSHES DIPPED IN THE PRODUCT OR TO THE FACE. Do not let those reviews stop you from purchasing this gorgeous product. Pacifica make more shades if you'd like, but never discontinue or reformulate. Stunning and a pretty spot on dupe.

Very nice! I dot it on my cheek bones and soften with the foundation brush. It looks so natural, and it is buildable. You can warm any area of your face with this. I love it!

Pretty color! Very natural and brightening. Little goes a long way!

I don't really wear makeup anymore but thought that I would give this product a shot, to give a little bit of life to my skin for my work Zoom meetings.
It is very soft, in texture and color. It is buildable, easy to blend, and it feels comfortable to wear. Really happy with this product!

This bronzer is great! It blends and builds well, feels very light on my skin, and hasn't caused any breakouts, which is an issue I've had many non-powder bronzers in the past. The color appears very natural on me and good for that just-in-the sun look.

The formulation of this product is excellent for my dehydrated/dry skin type. It blends in smoothly and the coverage is super light but buildable. The texture and application is similar to the Pacifica Fluffy Blushy (I LOVE!!). My slightly sensitive skin does not react so this product should be fine for people with mild Rosacea. I have been applying it on the side of my nose, under my cheekbones, on my temples, and under my "double" chin.
The one issue for me - and it's a big one - is color. I'm mixed race so I have yellow and pink undertones and I wear neutral foundation. This color is much too yellow/red for my complexion. I cannot wear self-tanner (even high-end) due to this issue - it never looks natural on me. I also cannot use most bronzers. HOWEVER, for those of you that can tan or look good with self-tanners this is a nice option.
Pacifica - if there is anyway you could add another bronzer color that is a more cool grayish brown (like Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder) - Us neutral complected would be GRATEFULL!!!
+ Excellent Quality
+ Lots of Product - Large pot - will last a long while.

I actually never wore bronzer before trying Pacifica's Bronzer in Sandy Kiss. I absolutely love it! It goes on sheer and looks natural on my fair skin. It blends smoothly and gives my skin a radiant sun kissed glow. Great job Pacifica!
Jess from AshevilleNC
I'm not typically a bronzer girl because I am super pasty and generally they look very unnatural on me, but this Pacifica bronzer is awesome! Not too heavy and not too dark. I use it in place of blush and it creates a really pretty sun kissed look. I will totally be keeping this in my rotation of much loved Pacifica cosmetics.
Saaliha from Valrico, FL
I really like this bronzer. The texture is smooth and it went great with my skin tone. I'm glowing when I wear this product! I highly recommend this bronzer to anyone who wants a bronzer that is high quality.

I'm a very pale ginger, so it's very hard to find a bronzer that doesn't look absolutely ridiculous. I've used hula lite powder bronzer for years, but I'm very thankful I was selected to try out this product. I chose Sandy Kiss, which is the lightest one. It does run orange, but the formula is easily layered and very natural once on. It's very creamy and smooth, and easy to apply. It really feels great on. I use it on the sides of my nose to contour it a bit. No idea what the other person was saying about smells because it definitely does not smell whatsoever. I was a bit hesitant because I do have the fluffy blush, which I wasn't too impressed with, but this is a really cool product.

I have been using this bronzer in the Summer shade and it is beautiful. I use my finger to dab a few dots on my cheeks and then I blend it in with a cheek makeup brush. It's very pretty and stays on for a while considering it's made with clean ingredients. Also the glass jar is huge and will last for a long time. Totally worth the price and I would definitely recommend.

This was the perfect color for my skin. It was easy to use. My only complaint is that it rubs off on clothes
Teresa from New Jersey
I bought three colors and I'm in love. As love the tones as much different from other brands. I can use to really warm up my face.
CokoLoko from Seattle
This bronzer is completely excellent—but, the fragrance is pretty horrible.
Cita from Fountain valley
Got it in medium… it's VERY dark for a medium, I have a medium olive complexion, still too dark for me. It's kinda greasy.. and patchy. However, pot is huge… not great
Alli from South Florida
I just bought this product and it is amazing. It works so good on my face and the color matched my skin so perfect. Love it!!!
