    love this bronzer!
    • This is the best bronzer I have ever used. Love that it is completely matte and I can actually use the two different colors to contour. I am about to reorder! Great staying power. Thank you paula's choice your products have changed my life!

    Grown to love it.
    • I've had this bronzer for over a year now, at first I didn't think it was anything special until I found myself reaching for it over other bronzers in my collection, and I own at least 25 different ones! I have fair skin and I've learned how to work with it best by swirling my brush in both sides. The lightest shade of bronzer I also use as eyeshadow, makes a PERECT transition crease shade. I love this product now.

    Too orange
    • I must have received a compact from a different batch than other reviewers. Mine is way too orange to be considered a bronzer. I ordered this based upon what I saw on the screen. This usually works fantastic and I receive what I see on the screen. Not this time. Can't use it because it looks so unnatural.

    Finally a Balanced Bronzer
    • This is a quality product. I like that there is no shimmer or reflective "stardust" in this bronzer. I stopped tanning years ago, but sometimes I still want a sun kissed look without looking orange. This is the product I dreamed of. No orange. Not too thick of an application. Make sure you have a good brush to apply and you look fantastic! (I am light-medium to medium skin)

    Love this multipurpose bronzer!
    • This is a wonderful bronzer. I use it in the winter when I'm very pale and it is great. I've used it in summer when I've had a tan. Good color both ways. No sparkle too which can be hard to find. It's not orangey yet not that muddy weird brown some bronzers can give. I use it as bronzer, eyeshadow and it's terrific. Non irritating too. I love paulas choice.

    I love this and have a back-up!
    • I purchased this when it was released and bought a back-up during a sale. I love the split pan, and the larger size. This allows me to easily get a brush in each shade, or to mix them together. I use to contour, but also as a general bronzer. There is no shimmer, but it does not look dry once applied. The shades are not orange and are easy to blend. I thought this was Limited, but am glad it is not! Thank you for a wonderful, reasonable priced product!

    Wish you could choose one color or the other
    • I really like this bronzer. My only complaint is that, as a fair skinned person, I can't use the darker shade; it just looks ridiculous on me and I'm not applying it with a heavy hand. If you could provide individual shades in the same way you do with blushes I wouldn't feel I was wasting money.

    Great color- but not so great for dry skin
    • Great color- best I've found- really like- 2nd one I've ordered- but- just can't wear on my 'drier 57 yr old skin' - looks too powdery. I think the first compact I liked I had used in the summer months when I wasn't so dry. I'll probably hang on to this one and not give to my daughter like I do w all my other makeup 'regects' I like the big compact- the powder isn't so powdery that it falls all over the sink as others do. There's no smell.

    BIG COMPACT, NO MIRROR
    • This is a good, realistic bronzer duo but the size of the compact is too large. Who can use that much product in a year or even two. For me, the biggest disappointment is that there is no mirror. As I apply bronzer/contour, I usually check the sides of my face by looking into the bronzer compact and seeing my reflection in a wall mirror. I keep trying to do that with this compact and realize that it has no mirror. Paula, please, smaller compact with mirror next time around.

    Finally!!!
    • I have fair skin and have never been very happy with the bronzers I've used, but have always wanted to give my face some more color and a glow. This is by far the most natural and gorgeous bronzer I have ever used. I'm so glad I trusted the great reviews. I love that their are two color options so that I can go darker during the summer time. This is honestly everything I wanted out of a bronzer. Home run bronzer for fair skinned women!

    Best I've Found
    • I've tried a lot of Beautypedia's Best bronzer recommendations and was expecting the same, disappointing results. What a nice surprise! It blended smoothly and naturally. The others always streak or look unnatural. And that's unacceptable in Southern California! Really like this bronzer!

    Nothing Special
    • The color and texture are fine. You can definitely layer it. I just didn't think it was fabulous like everybody else and after I noticed it was made in Taiwan I wasn't keen on putting it on my skin.

    Perfect
    • I love this bronzer. It is so natural looking and the quality is exceptional. It doesn't look drab, orange, or make your face look powdery. It's a huge compact and you get a lot for what you pay. I also like to use the darker shade on my lids. I have olive toned skin and my face is much lighter than the rest of my body because of sunscreen use and this is the perfect match. Thanks for such a great product!

    Not for My Skin Colouring
    • Unfortunately this product does not work for me. I have light to medium golden under toned skin. The light shade disappeared & the darker shade produced a grey cast. Not a colour I want on my face. The product does however have a nice texture & no sparkle.

    Another WOW for Paula
    • I am quite fair and have always had trouble with bronzers, to the point I'd given up trying them. Not only is this matte, but the texture is very silky and you can use just a tiny bit or build color as desired. Doesn't make my face look dirty! I use it with colored blush (usually peach for summer).

    Another great product
    • I have been wanting to try a bronzer for some time now but not willing to spend the money and decide who to buy from. I am REALLY happy with this product, both quality and effect. If I were to offer any additional feedback on the product, I am in the minority on this one, it would be that I DO NOT like the two colors. I know that I will run out of the dark before the light - product waste.

    Wonderful bronzer
    • This is one of the two best bronzers I ever used and I tried many. I have fair skin and this bronzer goes on smooth and looks very natural. I love that it has matte finish and the price can't be beat. I must say I prefer the darker color because even though it looks really dark in the compact, it gives me a beautiful "natural tan" type of look. But I also use the lighter one when mixed with the dark. My only wish is that you PLEASE make it in smaller travel size for convenience. Thank you Paula!

    Gorgeous, matte bronzer
    • I collect bronzers, and have found the holy grail. This bronzer possesses the quality of bronzers costing twice or more its price. I use the darker for light contour, the lighter where the sun would hit. Another winner, Paula. Thank you,

    bad design
    • I so much love this product its color works well, the size is great, the way it goes on is fantastic. the only flaw is in how it opens. i find it is very hard to open the lid. I tend to fumble with it every single time..the problem with that is that I have dropped it because of this many times, and one of these days I just know it will break the container. so if Paula can over come the way it opens up. it is the best on the market that I have tried i love paula's products, i use many.

    Very fair skin and it looks beautiful!
    • I have extremely fair skin and have never found a bronzer that didn't look orange, streaky or just plain fake. I ordered this based on the positive reviews and my love of everything that Paula's Choice creates continnues. This enhances my fair skin beautiful! I do not look tan, I just look like I have the most beautiful, natural and subtle little sun kissed glow. I LOVE IT! A sincere thank you to Paula and her team for creating products that do what they say!

    Nice, but not for me
    • This custom color bronzer is nice, but the lighter color did not show up on me at all, I prefer another brand that Paula had in her "best section" It's still a nice product, just didn't work for me. Her self-tanners, however, are brilliant!

What makes this product unique?
SunKissed Custom Color Bronzer helps you achieve the perfect bronzed complexion without exposing your skin to harmful UVA/UVB rays. This wide, double-sided bronzing palette contains two flattering shades that make it easy to create customized, natural-looking color on the face, décolleté, or body. Best of all, both shades provide a true matte finish. You’ll love how the lightweight, silky texture blends seamlessly with your skin leaving a healthy, natural-looking bronze tone. It also layers beautifully so you can easily control the depth of color.

Never tested on animals and 100% fragrance-free.

Who is this product for?
SunKissed Custom Color Bronzer is ideal for any skin type seeking subtle contouring or the look of a natural tan without sun exposure, but is best for fair to medium/light skin tones.

Product Ingredients:

Talc (absorbent/texture enhancer), Mica (mineral pigment), Magnesium Stearate (binding agent), Dimethicone (silicone slip agent), Isopropyl Isostearate, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate (bulking/binding agents), Petrolatum (emollient), Methylparaben, Propylparaben (preservatives), Iron Oxide Red, Iron Oxide Black, Iron Oxide Yellow (cosmetic pigments).

DIRECTIONS: Using a Paula’s Choice Powder Brush, pick up some bronzer on the end of the brush and knock off the excess. Gently buff onto skin where the sun would naturally bronze: cheekbones, chin, bridge of nose, forehead, shoulders, and décolleté. Blend using circular movements for a natural, healthy-looking color. Use light and dark shades separately or together to create a custom matte finish. Can be used alone or over foundation. Always be sure to protect your skin with a Paula’s Choice sunscreen before applying.

TIPS & TROUBLESHOOTING

  • SunKissed Perfect Blend Bronzer is suitable for fair to tan skin tones.
  • Looks beautiful when used to accent the results from any self-tanner.
  • Matte finish and natural-looking color make it suitable for men, too.
  • If applying this bronzing powder and blush, apply bronzer first, and then sweep blush on the apples (fleshy part) of your cheeks.

What’s the best way to apply this product? Use one color or both?

The tone-on-tone color combination of SunKissed Custom Color Bronzer is designed so you can use the lighter or darker color or both, based on your skin tone and preferences. We encourage you to experiment with the colors to see which mix and level of intensity you prefer!

For applying, use a powder or blush brush (powder brush is preferred due to its larger size) and lightly sweep it over one or both shades in the compact. If using both shades, pick up the darker color first, then the lighter shade. Gently knock any excess powder from the brush head and apply to areas of skin where you want to bronze. The best areas of the face to apply bronzer are the tops of cheeks, bridge of nose, and the high point of the forehead, perhaps extending slightly down to the temple area.

How should I use this bronzing powder with my regular powder blush?

Apply SunKissed Custom Color Bronzer first, and then follow with blush, which you would apply to the apple (fleshy part) of your cheeks and brush back along the cheekbone. The color concentration from the blush should be on the apple of the cheek.
