Rated 4.07 out of 5 stars
I am an IT girl all the way. I love most of the products and only use a few things from other lines. For over 10 years I have used Nars Laguna or Tarte's Amazonian Clay in Park Avenue Princess. For years yall! And I have been happy with them. So let me set the stage. I go to Ulta to get some bronzer (Tarte). I see this bronzer. I ran to Ulta looking a bit of a mess so decided to throw on a bit of this bronzer to beautify. First of all, it smells like the beach. It has a tiny hint of coconut and I was into it! Second of all, this looks natural. I mean for real. I look like I have been on the beach. Most bronzers will add some color and bronze you up, but I feel like it looks like a bronzer. Not in a bad way, but I don't often mistake someone's bronzer for a day at the beach. This stuff looks like a tan. Second of all, hours pass and it still looks good. It still looks natural. It didn't oxidize or turn streaky. So what do I do? I return to Ulta the next day and exchange the Tarte bronzer for this one. I haven't looked back. I absolutely LOVE this bronzer. I feel like it looks so perfect. It gives you a beachy glow. Now if you are looking to do some Kardashian style contouring I don't know if this would work because I don't apply it like that, but it probably would be fine. Last thing. I use a Clinique brush to apply. I have almost all IT brushes but for this stuff, I use the Clinique Foundation buff brush (Item 2299840). It was suggested to me by a store employee once for bronzer and I really love the control it gives me and it buffs out really well, too. For reference, in IT foundations I am a medium or now with the new colors added to the line, a medium tan. So there you have it. Buy this stuff, it is really great. I bought 4 just incase they discontinue it or something terrible.
So I wanted this bronzer so badly, but as with the rest of It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Collection, this too contains Algae Extract. This is one of the most comedogenic ingredients. It is the one ingredient that breaks me out no matter how little is in the product. And it can also go by different names, but not for this bronzer- it says in the ingredients Algae Extract. I think this is usually used to add moisture, but I'm not sure why they would use an ingredient in an item for pores that will surely clog a lot of people's up! Very disappointing since this bronzer is absolutely beautiful. Just when I thought I may have found a Holy Grail...NOPE :(

Please bring back the ombré bronzer!! This does the job but does not give me a glow like the ombré bronzer did
Njenks from NJ
Goes on very smoothly and can use all over your face for a suntan glow. Smells nice too!

Ok, I NEVER write reviews but I had to for this product. I had been using clinique bronzer for years before I decided to randomly try something new. I am SO glad I did! This bronzer is amazing, and actually does what it says (not to mention it actually smells nice). I don't even have to wear foundation with this. I just moisturize my face, put on some concealer, and then swipe some of this on and BAM! Perfection. 10000/10 recommend this.

This bronzer is nowhere how awesome the ombré palette was. Please make this again.

I went out of town and forgot my makeup so I had to run to the local ulta for an emergency run. I normally buy if different brand of bronzer which ulta no longer carries so I bought this on whim since I like a number of other It products. I was hesitant about the shade but went for it and I'm so glad I did! Looks beautiful, so blendable and lasts all day!

This is a really nice bronzer. It blends easily and gives me just the right amount of glow. I also use it for light contouring. I've received lots of compliments.

Nice color but smells weird and then I can smell it on my face even later.
Jennifer from Dewitt, NY
After using this product for a few days my face was all broken out in pimples.

I have a very olive undertone even when pale in the winter and this product is nice but not quite dark enough, almost like a light foundation color not a bronzer. Also there is NOT that much product in the pan. I'm apprised how quickly I hit pan.

This does not have heavy pigment which makes it a perfect product to be able to put on your face and just get that sun-kissed look.
FayeC from Allentown PA

I love this bronzer! I use it all year round. I can not live without this, especially when I'm not feeling a glam day.. basically no foundation! It goes on smooth & looks beautiful. I'm dark shines skinned latina & it looks like in just got back from Mexico.

I use this product as a blush and it looks so natural.
Wish it had been easier from Leonard, TX
I've had this product before, but when I went to reorder it, there were other colors (not the exact same). While I appreciate additional options, I had to take a guess as to which "medium" would be closest. Unfortunately the one I chose is too dark and after waiting over 2 weeks for my order to arrive it's not worth the hassle to exchange/buy another one. Really bummed
Tamcat from Oh
I love to use this to contour with. Perfect color!!!!
