    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!

    Bronzer Perfection
    • This bronzer beats my trusty NARS bronzer hands down and at a fraction of the cost! I have very pale skin but a couple swipes through each color (darker first) and it's perfect for contouring under my cheekbones and around the 'borders' of my face, then adding a little kiss of 'sun' on forehead, nose, and chin. Add a touch of blusher high on the cheeks near the temples and I have skin that has a natural, healthy-looking glow without any shimmer or orange tint to give away my secret weapon. LOVE!

    Beautiful Color
    • Aside from being such a large container, I really love how this look on my skin and just seems to brighten up my face. I like the fact that it has a matte finish and is not shimmery. Just gives a natural color. If I want I can add a bit of pink blush on the apples of my cheeks but this bronzer is really just beautiful as is!! I highly recommend this.

    Good bronzer, poor for contouring (pale nw15 skin)
    • I got this for contouring, inspired by the reviews for pale skin and Paula's youtube channel where it's used for contouring. It's true there's no shimmer however this definitely has an orange base to it. It works well if you want to do true sunkissed bronzing where sun would hit on the high points of the face and naturally make your skin more orange, but it does NOT work for contouring pale skin. Contouring i.e. shadows in hollows of cheeks are not naturally orange, and should be a true neutral.

    Wish shades were sold separately
    • This bronzer is FANTASTIC -- best I've ever used. However, for my very pale skin, I'm only using the lighter shade and feel like I'm wasting the other shade. PLEASE consider selling the shades separately. Otherwise, this matte color glides on like a dream and looks very natural.

    Beats $50+ Competition
    • I switched to this from the Chanel bronzer I had used for years due to price (I needed to save some cash somewhere in my beauty routine). I am so glad I did! I thought at first the two shades where nearly the same, but after application they are absolutely different colors - and both work!! I have fair-neutral skin, and if I tap the excess off of my brush before applying, I get a wonderful sheer 'glow.' Just enough. Thank you once again, Paula! :D

    Boundless Bronzer!
    • Excellent bronzer!! It blends beautifully, gives me the option for a subtle all over warmth or I can go for a deeper more contoured look. I have a medium/olive complexion with yellow undertones and super oily skin, this does not fade or turn orange on me...Hallelujah!!!! This is also great for those days when you are in a hurry and just want a little somethin-somethin on your face. I use the lighter shade on my lid and as a blush, the darker shade in my crease and all over contour. Perfect!

    Fantastic
    • I'm not usually a bronzer girl, but ordered this based on all the other reviews. They were right - I love it! It's a huge compact, and I actually use the colors as blush, then add just a teeny tiny bit to other parts of my face. I do wish it came with a little instruction sheet on how to contour, as I am not familiar with that, and I would love a mirror in it as well. But those are minor things. Great product that is easy to use and very blendable, even for very fair skin like mine.

    Gorgeous
    • This is such a beautiful bronzer! I have never worn bronzer as it always looks muddy on my very fair skin (medium blonde hair and brown eyes). This is just gorgeous. The texture is like silk with amazing color pay-off. Just a little works for me and lasts through a ten-plus hour day. I swirl both of the colors together and apply like a blush. It makes my skin come alive. Yet another fantastic product from Paula!

    HUGE Matte Bronzer
    • This bronzer is awesome. Like all of the other reviewers, I was shocked at how big the compact is! I love that it gives you two matte shades for you to customize your color. I have searched forever for a bronzer that works for me, and I think I've found it! Thanks Paula!

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.
