My Thoughts: I really love the color payout of this bronzer.  While I'm not sure that it really "adjusts", it does definitely look beautiful on a wide range of skin tones.  On the fairest of skins, it can look just a tad bit orangey though, so be sure to build it up in sheer layers if you're worried about how it will look.  It also has a good bit of shimmer to it as well, meaning it's best used with a matte blush to avoid looking shiney- especially if you're going to be taking photos.  I carry this in my bridal kit and like to use it to add a touch of color to the face of my bridal party so that their makeup looks are all nice and cohesive.  It really does look beautiful on just about everybody.


It seems like such a small compact, but it lasts for a very long time.  I'd say I've used it at least 100 times, and you can't even begin to see a dent in the product itself.  I prefer using a large fluffy brush, like the Real Techniques Duo Fiber Face Brush, since the longer white hairs will buff the product out to a beautiful airbrushed finished.  It can also be used for contouring on slightly darker skin tones, although be careful of the shimmer.  For that I like a small angled blush brush, like the Crown Brush Studio Pro Contour Blush Brush (C405).

I don't know about the whole magically smoothing out fine lines portion of their claim, as I don't think any bronzer can really do that.  If you want to minimize the appearance of fine lines, you need to do that prior to your powder color products- with your skincare, primer, and foundation.

 

Final Verdict: Great bronzer that will suit just about anyone's skin tone, and will last a very long time.  Great value!
