I have used pressed powder bronzer and cream bronzer, but never a loose powder bronzer. When I saw this in an Avon magazine, I knew I had to give it a try! This is actually a dark foundation color and not advertised as a bronzer but I thought it might just work. When I first received this I thought the color looked way too dark, but after using it several times now, I think its a new favorite. The powder is super smooth and silky and blends in like a dream.
