I've never used a bronzer before but once I used this I could not do without. It contours my face the way blush alone couldn't. I bought Shade 1 because I use Shade 2 in Aerin foundation, but I wouldn't mind using Shade 2 if I want more definition.
This is my first time using aerin products. I loved the feel of this powder on my skin. I have combo to dry skin. It gives a very subtle illumination that looks very natural. Stays put quite well and though I have not used it long enough to say more I really enjoy the feel of it.
I just received my order in the mail today and I am so pleased. Everything was beautifully packaged and presented and it was such a treat to open and try for the first time. I too thought it might be light but it turns out that this bronzer is the perfect shade for winter-pale skin. It perked up my complexion beautifully. I'm looking forward to ordering more products from this line. Love!
This may look very light when you open the compact but it works amazingly well for fair skin. I shy away from bronzers because it looks like you applied bronzer. You can use this one on your neck and it is light enough to not look conspicuous. I like it. I even bought one for a friend for her birthday.
