I read so many good things about this bronzing powder in the beauty magazine and on-line, so I just had to try it out for myself. This shade "Golden Light 1" is a "matte" bronzing powder. It's the perfect shade for my medium skintone. This has been my go-to bronzer lately. I also have Bobbi Brown's bronzing powder in "Bali Brown" (shimmer), which I absolutely love and wear it more in the summer months to give me that extra bronze "glow". You can't go wrong with Bobbi Brown's bronzing powders -- you only need a small amount and they last like FOREVER!!
