Depending on the skin it may have a very sublte glow. It is not very noticeable. It has the perfect luminosity for me and is not unnatural or heavy.

The "Dune" does not have any shimmer. The other color does though. I would not recommend this product though. I found it to be very unnatural and streaky. Does not blend well on the skin.

the Dune color is basically matte, no shimmer. the other shade looks shimmery to me. ( I have Dune, its quite lovely, but I bought it b/c it doesn't have the shimmer, so if that's what your looking for, go for the Dune, if you want shimmer try the other color)

They make two types: one with shimmer and one without. If you don't want the shimmer, use Dune.

Yes this bronzer has very fine shimmer. As a hater of most shimmer products I am surprised to say I quite like the shimmer in this product. For reference I have the bronzer in shade Golden.

You can't go wrong with Dune. It's so lightweight, that you can always build up the color if need be.

I, too, am blue eyed and fair skinned... I ordered the Dune color (NO glittery stuff - just nice light bronzing pigments) and it looks "real" on my skin.

I also have brown hair, blue eyes and fair skin. Golden Bronze was perfect for me. The color is subtle so you won't have to worry about looking artificial.

Golden Bronze worked for me, I have dark hair, dark eyes, but fair skin with freckles. It gives me just a little color without being obvious, blends easily, and it isn't orange or chalky. There is little shimmer but it's not too frosty or obvious.

Personally I think the "Dune Bronze" would be your best choice in color. I am fair-skinned, blue-eyed and have dark blonde hair and it blends perfectly into my skin tone. The "Dune Bronze" also has a matte finish, which I think makes it look more natural, too.

I tried both colors on my face in store and found that Golden is the perfect hue for someone like me: Blue eyes, auburn hair, pink undertones, very fair Irish skin. The Dune color has a more yellow hue to it so someone like my sister (brown hair, hazel eyes, yellow undertones, very fair Irish skin) looks better in Dune. Hope this helps!

With fair skin, I'd go with Dune. The other shade probably looks better on skin that already has a more natural amount of color.

Question
Golden bronze on tan skin?
I don't have a Sephora close to me, so it's hard to test this product on my skin color. I am Filipina and therefore can get real tan during summer. I am searching for a year round bronzer that will help in contouring that looks natural without being too dark. I am interested in the golden bronze because of the pink hues. Will this look fine on my skin color?

Fluffy powder brush…but I'd be more inclined to recommend a flat/matte colored deeper powder to contour, not a bronzing powder which is designed to (surprise) make the skin look tan! So apply the bronzing powder to the high points of the face.

Such is life! K cups aren't recyclable; I think that's more of a concern than a bronzing powder compact.
