Excellent purchase

I have been using this product for contouring since it was first released and it is perfect for my pale NW-10 coloring ..... what I appreciate is that it does not turn orange or look dirty .... I use the bronzer to make my cheekbones look sharper and it also blends nicely with my blushes (I only use Charlotte Tilbury blushes as they are my HG.) Unfortunately I do not use the highlighter portion, but still worth for me to purchase as the bronzer does make a wonderful contour.

The bronze shade is really pretty on my very fair skin (I’m an NC10 in MAC and I’m between the 0 and 1 in Charlotte’s Magic Foundation - the 0 is better tone wise, but the 1 has a better undertone for me). It’s not too dark, does not pull at all orange, and looks very natural. The problem is the highlighter. It’s not workable on me. It’s just too dark and too gold and does not look natural. For this alone I probably wouldn’t repurchase because I can find equally nice bronzers without having to pay for a highlighter I can’t use (the Hourglass Bronze Light is very similar if anyone else is looking for something else that would work for fair skin). The Kevin Aucoin contour light is also really good for more of a contour instead of a bronzer.

I SO wanted to love this after reading many, MANY positive reviews. However, I think this product is slightly overrated, especially since it is so freakin' pricey! On my NC25 skintone, the bronzer does not really show up, which means I have to layer it over and over again to make the bronzer noticeble. I do love the undertone, which is not too cool or warm. The highlighter was a disappointmet for me as well. I did not really notice it, so I think it is more of a highlighter that you apply on top of a liquid highlighter.

Pricey - yes, but it's worth it! There are lots of reviews for this online in the 'medium/light' but not as many for the 'medium/dark', so here's my take... Firstly the bronzer is a medium-brown with warm undertones and a slightly gold hue to it. Honestly for me it's a game changer, it's so smooth and unlike the vast majority of bronzers I've used before, the quality is just in a league of its own. Also it's not super-pigmented meaning I can apply lightly and build-up as needed - just as good for day wear as it is building it up for a dramatic evening look. The highlighter here is a beautiful orange-gold slightly shimmery shade and again the quality is fantastic, you can actually see the difference in both when comparing to an averagely-priced highlighter or bronzer. Great for highlighting cheekbones, under brow area and also inner eyes. Time-wise I get around 7-8 hours from both the bronze and the highlighter before they start to fade. I can see this lasting a long time. For reference I'm nowhere near the bottom of the pan yet, despite having this in heavy rotation (almost daily use). Would be fantastic if this could be brought out in more shades as I feel it would appeal to a much bigger audience. For example my work colleague (roughly NC35) who got me onto this doesn't use it in winter when she is at her most palest, as she falls somewhere between the 'dark/medium' and 'medium/light' but not squarely into either. For me dark/medium is just perfect all year round and once (and IF) I run out I will be repurchasing.

I really wanted to love this with all the rave reviews, however the bronzer barely shows up on my NC30 skintone, which is odd because my complexion is not that dark. I have light- light medium skin tone, with yellow under tones. The bronzer barely shows up. I think if you have a lighter skin tone this could be lovely. CT does make another bronze and glow set for darker skin tones, but that one is too dark. She needs something in the middle. The highlighter is nice, but I like her contour wand better.

 Best highlight and contour


Use the contour more than highlight but both are natural and Easy to properly apply.

  • Tracy L Emond



This item was broken into tiny pieces and loose powder was all over the outside of the container. And, there appears to be no way to return/replace it!!
