I LOVE THIS STUFF. Granted, it's not for everyone. In general, bronzers are supposed to give you that summer glow, and most of the time, they aren't as shimmery as this. BUT! If you're planning to go for that combination of Chiseled+Sunkissed+Highlighted for the gods, this is your baby! Absolutely love this, as it gets me from 2 dimensional flat face to sculpted sun goddess (lol). It doesn't emphasize pores (on me) and lasts pretty much all day. The shimmer on this is finely milled, so it is more of a sheen. No obvious sparkles on this one.
