Stila Sun Bronzer

Stila Sun Bronzer - Shade 1

The Product

Stila Sun Bronzer in shade 1 is described as a "sheer golden matte bronze" according to Stila's website.  It provides a glow to the skin without adding shine or shimmer.  It also comes in shade 2 which is described as a "sheer warm matte bronze."  I have fair skin so I chose shade 1 which we will look at in this review.

The Function

Bronzers are an absolute must for me all year round.  Certain tones work better for certain times of year and I felt this one would be great for the warmer months.  While it does appear more "orange" than shade 2, it certainly does not apply that way.  I have fair skin with warm undertones so for me, it works very well.  I like to apply this bronzer with either the Real Techniques Sculpting Brush or the Real Techniques Blush Brush.  If I want a more precise application, I use the Sculpting Brush.  The Blush Brush on the other hand provides an all over diffused glow.  When I say glow, I do not mean shine, however.  This bronzer does not any detectable shimmer when applied.  I find that to be a major bonus and it certainly makes this a more multi-tasking product.  It can be used as more of a contouring product or as an all over bronzer to be used wherever the sun would naturally hit.

The Style

The Stila Sun Bronzer comes in a slim, plastic compact with a generous size mirror.  I would not worry about this being thrown around in a makeup bag and it is definitely travel friendly.  The outside of my compact is a slightly different design than shown on the Stila site.  I got mine on sale on for $9.99 with the older design.  That makes absolutely no difference to me.  The Beauty Puff loves a great deal!

The Bottom Line

This bronzer is beautiful and I have absolutely no complaints.  It wears well, the design is sleek, and I will definitely be getting a ton of use out of it this spring/summer.  If you head over to and do not see it for the same price I paid, keep watching the site.  Their prices change and you never know what kind of great deal you will come across.  Plus, there is free shipping!  Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase and will keep scoping out deals on for future posts!  Happy shopping!
