    Purchased a few months ago and absolutely love this! It is such a stunning colour and builds beautifully. It looks like you have a natural glow to your skin. It isn't heavy or cakey, and layers beautifully. I love how buildable it can be without ending up looking muddy. The tone is forgiving and youthful and it doesn't look powdery. It does have a little shine to it but only when the light catches it. The glow is beautiful and not too shimmering.  My only gripe with this bronzer is you need a light hand- it's very easy to overdo it, and you can look fake and overly contoured. I love applying this with a brush so I can control the amount. It's pricey but the after look that I get is amazing. So worth the price in my opinion.

    Great Splurge

    I was very hesitant about buying this bronzer, I mean it sure is pricey and I was afraid that it would make me look extra shimmery or glittery. Also it is somewhat difficult to choose the right shade for you, as they both look somewhat similar to each other. Long story short - omg! This is the best bronzer I have tried in a while!!

    For starters, don't be fooled by a hand-swatch, this stuff is pigmented! And don't expect it to look glittery or shimmery, it won't! It actually doesn't even look powdery and thanks to its ultra fine mineral texture it is so so natural on the skin. The glow factor is minima

    beautiful

    the new bronzing formula takes the “illuminating effects” of their signature Ambient Lighting powders with “bronze pigments” to give a “natural, sun-kissed glow.” This particular shade is designed for “medium/deep complexions.” It was very pigmented and a little went a long way. It’s rather full coverage, instead of buildable, but you can blend/diffuse it for a sheerer look as the formula is forgiving. It seemed rather sparkly when swatched, but the way it translated onto skin is almost magical, because I didn’t see a lot of sparkle, I saw the luminosity. The texture was silky, smooth and blends easily on the skin, while the sheen didn’t emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before I noticed any fading.  and its just absolutely stunning

    easy to use

    very pigmented and lightweight. Use with a light hand as a little can go a long way. The packaging is very bulky and a little heavy to carry around with you however the bronzer is a nice warm bronzer without being too orange toned and perfect for a wide range of skin tones. It also lasts long in the malaysian heat, even without a setting spray and gives off a slight shimmery effect on the cheeks without being too bold and sparkly.

Product details

Ambient Bronzer is an illuminating bronzer with Photoluminescent Technology, featuring bronze pigments that deliver a natural-looking, sunkissed glow while flaunting depth and dimension. 

Key benefits and ingredients:

Ambient Bronzer’s sheer, airy formula sweeps softly onto skin for a healthy-looking, radiant finish. It’s formulated with Photoluminescent Technology, featuring optically transparent particles that transform the look of skin by manipulating and refracting light to emphasize your best features. The optically transparent particles allow for seamless blending and color transitions. The powders, blended by hand using an advanced miscelare technique, offer the perfect balance of pigments in a gorgeous pattern. Use this bronzer alone, or paired with Ambient Lighting Powder for maximum control to create depth and dimension—or even use it for a subtle contouring effect.

How to use: For a warming look, use a powder brush and gently swirl it in the entire compact to pick up the perfect balance of pigment and powder. Lightly apply all over your face to achieve a sun-kissed look. For a defining look, use the brand’s Ambient Lighting Brush to apply it as a subtle contour along the temples, hollows of your cheeks and jawline.
