VERY shimmery/satin finish. Lagoona also has shimmer but with a light hand can be used to contour. I don't really enjoy Nars products that much. I would suggest you look into Guerlain Terracota Brozing Powders they are better quality and have different tones for different skin tones so you would probably find a better match for you.

Contains shimmer. If you want a contour or bronzer that is matte and not shiny try the kit by makeup forever called sculpting kit one. You can use it all year long and the it is a perfect fit for what you need.

I have always had trouble with bronzer looking "orangey" on me as well, but this one DOES NOT!! I use the Warm Glow, which has a bit of pink in it. It does have a small amount of luminescense, but I promise that it is the perfect amount..unless you are heavy handed that is. In my experience, it is not glittery at all. I just lightly sweep it all over my face. It doesn't even come across as bronzer, but wakes up my face and adds the perfect amount of warmth to my pale winter face. I can honestly tell you that I hope they never stop making this. It is my favorite of all time and I have tried them all. I think you will love it.

This product does contain a shimmer. I use a very light hand when using it though. It goes on silky smooth.

This has a lot of shimmer but warm glow will not turn you orange , it is for cool skin tones

If you're looking for a matte bronzer, I would not go with this one - this has a very heavy shimmer / luminizing finish. For a matte finish, I would try Tarte (which has a matte, pressed bronzer), Nars pressed powder (in a shade like Laguna), or Benefit's Hoola (which is matte, but pretty dark). If you do not want shimmer, I would also avoid Laura Mercier's bronzing block and Smashbox (I've tried both; both are shimmery). I hope this helps!

I could see warm glow going orange on someone who is pink toned. I wear warm, but I need peachy colors so it's a good match for me. If it was orange on you before??

I did not find this to be orange at all. It does have a bit of subtle shimmer, however. If you want matte bronzer I recommend Nars bronzer, it adds a perfect glow without looking like you actually have make up on.

It has a definite shimmer, but not too much. It is definitely not orange -- more pink.

This bronzer is not matte. It has a shimmery glow to it, but not glittery. It is a very sexy, attractive look. I have dry skin, too, but moisturize it very well and want a dewy, moist look to my makeup. This bronzer does that and does not look dry on the skin.

It does seem have a light sheen/glow to it. It's not matte (not glittery though). I bought the Warm Glow shade, which is a bronze-pink. I use as more of a blush, and it has not turned orange on me.
