Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best bronzer for my brown skin For several years I did not change the product I used the Charlotte Tilbury bronzer that I also love, but when I finally decided to try this it was when I acquired a palette that contained 4 powdered products, and when I used the bronzer it was like having found the perfect color for My skin and with a smooth finish, not patchy, which the CT sometimes gave me is the feeling of not completely covering where I place it, but this is much easier to apply and if you go over it, it fades super nice. You can put on makeup without fear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am Hourglass' new biggest fan I purchased this as a replacement for my Charlotte Tilbury one (which I love), so I was really nervous but I find it just as good as Charlotte Tilbury's versions Goes on well, gives a subtle coverage but you can also build it up for an evening look. Would def purchase again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As a person of color this was amazing! I have seldom found bronzers that actually work for my olivey-brown Indian skin tone, but this one did an absolutely fabulous job of making me feel included in the make-up industry. I bought this at Space NK and was absolutely thrilled at the finish. Perfect for a summers day especially with all the zoom meetings we are having to go through! MUST BUY!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best neutral bronzer I bought this in Luminous Bronze Light (travel size) and have just used it up, and will definitely be repurchasing in the full size. I am very pale and have found that all the other bronzers I have tried, they have pulled far too warm and orange on me. This shade is just right for me, adds a bit of warmth and glow but stays quite neutral on my skin. As with all Hourglass powders, it is very lightweight on the skin. Looking forward to buying this large version as it a much better price per gram but it will take me a very long time to use it up. The travel size (1.3g) took me 9 months, though I did not use it everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I tried this bronzer because of its aesthetic more than anything and wanted a change from the Nars bronzer which is my old faithful. Loved it as much as I’d hoped. Will make it a repeat purchase. Definitely recommend for an all round product. Great packaging too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from radiant I love this bronzer as it is so luminous. I am not personally a fan of matte bronzers as I prefer a more radiant finish which is exactly what this product gives me. It is not too pigmented and so can be built up to the intensity you like. hourglass powders are always so lovely and soft and this one is the same. great bronzer. the only down side I would say is that the shade range is not great. I am a medium skin tone and I think I have one of the darkest shades so wouldn't be any use to skin tones much darker than me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from NUDE BRONZE LIGHT I bought this full size because I had a xmas palette and wanted to replace that bronzer and this was the closest shade I could find in the permanent line. It is slightly warm in tone.eThis shade is good on my light-medium skin tone and even though there is a lot of radiance in the pan, once on your face it isnt noticeable except in a magnifying mirror. It does not make my large pores any more noticeable and is smooth to apply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The absolute best for makeup I have bought a couple of these (and just ordered another!). In my option, Hourglass products are just the best. My mum always taught me that you can't afford to buy cheap products (as you will always be replacing them). This is actually quite true - although this is a pricey product, it will last you and you will be so in love with it that you won't want anything else. This glides on, is buildable, and feels like silk on the skin. It is one of those products that I will buy again and again. Big thumbs up from me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Give me all of the hourglass!! In my eyes hourglass can do no wrong. Powders, bronzers, blush, mascara - it’s all amazing. I have several of these bronzers and just love the bronzed but also really glowy finish they leave. I love a dewy look and these still manage it like no other powder bronzer I’ve found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best bronzer I am a great lover of Hourglass. I purchased this bronzer about a year ago in the Luminous light shade and I have been using it every day since. I absolutely love it! It is a subtle but warm shade, very wearable. I also like to put a light dusting of this on no make up days. Lovely product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this bronzer I purchased this as recommended by a lovely Space NK employee. I love how versatile it is, you can get a more pigmented versus light look (I go more heavy on the summer when im darker versus winter) by "which" part you dip your brush in. It's super blendable and buildable. I also love to use this as an eyeshadow, really brings my makeup together! I use this daily and nowhere near hitting pan. Buy this!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A new favorite! My favorite bronzer had been sold out for weeks, so i decided to take the plunge try and this hourglass product. i was skeptical as i dont use bronzer with any sort of shimmer, and prefer a matte finish. while this does have some shimmer, it is not apparent upon application. one to two swirls of the brush leave your face with a perfect glow!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful powder, but very sparkly I bought this for my mumma for her birthday and she absolutely adores it! I'm not saying its for everyone (it's very sparkly) - I prefer a matte bronzer and use the CT airbrush bronzer myself, but for special occasions its nice to use a little bit of this product on top of my matte bronzer. But she absolutely adores this bronzer, it adds a beautiful glowing sheen to your skin like all the hourglass powders! It's expensive, but it's a lovely powder, just don't expect it to be a matte finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtle glow I have quite a few hourglass products. I have over the years tried various setting powders. Dim and diffused light were my original favourites. I decided to buy diffused bronze light as it looked more of a reddy bronze shade which I think looks more natural. I am very pleased with my purchase. This gives a gorgeous glow and can be used sparingly or built up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely warm bronzer I bought this as an alternative to my current bronzer after seeing good reviews. It has great luminosity for a radiant finish and applies beautifully for contouring and bronzing. Its a large compact and a little goes a long way so it will definitely last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous bronzer This bronzer is absolutely divine, it melts onto the skin and leaves a really natural and glowy finish. I have always been a bit wary of shimmery products as I don’t want to emphasise any skin texture issues, but this product does the opposite. It’s completely flattering, just another wonderful Hourglass product.
Date published: 2021-02-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect bronzer Hourglass powders are my favourite powders to use. Their formula is just fantastic - they melt into the skin and create such a natural and glowing look that every other brand struggles to match. It’s so easy to create a bronzed glow look without over-doing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diffused Bronze Light - a lovely surprise I had wanted to try Hourglass powders for years and finally caved and got Diffused Bronze Light. It's the deepest out of the colours out in the single compacts and has the reddest undertone. I like to use it as a winter cheek colour almost as a sculting blush, looks nice and flushed (I have light medium yellow skin). The texture is very smooth and quite a thin bronzer, VERY pigmented but easy to blend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely I have various shades of this bronzer in different palettes and there’s nothing not to love about them! I find all Hourglass powders to be so forgiving on skin with signs of aging, it just gives smoothness, glow, and a healthier look. I highly recommend it!
Date published: 2021-01-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow This bronzer is so great, I finally understand all of the hype! I have a light skin tone, and use the fairest shade - it works perfectly to accentuate my cheeks, and it doesn't look too dark and ruddy. I like the marbled design aesthetically, but I swirl my brush into the powder to get an even coating. There is a subtle shine which I think helps to add dimension to my face! I love it!!
Date published: 2021-01-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I have this in two shades - Nude Bronze Light (slightly warmer) and Diffused Bronze Light (slightly cooler) and they are both incredible quality and blend effortlessly. They have a sophisticated radiance to them and are a fail safe option for a polished look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love I bought the Nude Bronze Light and wasn't sure how it would on my fairly pale skin. IT was beautiful, the most perfect shade. Hourglass is by far my favourite make up brand, the products are so luxurious and beautiful, you don't need much to see the effects either so it will last a good while.
Date published: 2020-12-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bronzer I now have this in two shade, Nude Bronze and Luminous Bronze, and I absolutely love them both! I use them for contouring, rather than using them all over my face. I was really surprised at how much the Luminous Bronze shows up on the skin, given how pale it looks in the pan, but it is still beautiful and natural looking, not at all muddy or grubby looking. I feel very much ‘up in my stuff’ and glamorous when I wear it The Nude Bronze is much more subtle, and gives a very natural glowy effect, perfect for a non make-up look. I tried it with no foundation, only a minimal application of eyebrow pencil and a touch of mascara and I was stunned at the natural beauty it revealed. Perfect summer make-up!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely bronzer I bought this because I have used other hourglass products and loved them. It leaves a nice and subtle glow! Takes me back to summer days, I can feel like I'm on holiday all the time. Great product, the compact mirror also comes in very handy for applying makeup!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good I used this bronzer for years, and I mean literally the same one as it is impossible to finish... Although it's quite pricey it is very good value for the money as you get a lot of product and need very little to create a look. This gives a lovely radiant finish without being glittery, but it is quite warm toned (I use shade 'Luminous Bronze' however I've heard they pretty much all lean warmer). For this reason I don't use it as often as I used to as I've learned more about cooler tones. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase though if you enjoy a warm glowy bronzer.
Date published: 2020-12-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful I have tried two of these bronzers and they’re great. They give a lovely radiant finish and blend quite naturally on the skin. The shades aren’t too heavy on first application so it’s easily buildable. It’s definitely worth buying the full size as the travel size is quite small, so is harder to use with your brush.
Date published: 2020-12-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous bronzer I didn’t regularly use a bronzer until I bought this one and it really does make a difference. I notice the contouring effect it has on my cheekbones, especially as I’m often on video calls. The shade isn’t too strong but buildable and works really well alongside the rest of range of powders.
Date published: 2020-11-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful First of all the packaging is beautiful, so luxurious. I love how the product is buildable, you can keep adding to create depth. In my case, less is more. It gives a shimmery glow to the skin which looks sun kissed. I also use this as an eyeshadow too, give it a go yourself you won’t be disappointed.
Date published: 2020-11-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prefect Bronzer Good colour, gives nice coverage without being too heavy. Colour easy to build up, it offers a nice shimmer to complement contouring. Can be worn but day and night. I also like to use it as a eye shadow. Basically a total winner, can’t see why you wouldn’t love it!
Date published: 2020-11-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My must have morning make-up I have a freckly face and don’t use any foundation, but a quick light dust of this gorgeous bronzer gives me just the pick up I need. I wouldn’t be without it. I have bought it multiple times and it is the only bronzer I have found which doesn’t break up in the final stages, so nothing is wasted. Perfect.
