I'm looking at changing my bronzing powder and am keen to hear what products people have used and would buy again.
I have used MAC and most recently Fake bake which are both okay.

With Fake Bake I found I've had to be a bit careful with application as it can make me look a bit red for some reason and rubs off on my clothes quite easily.

Anyway what other suggestions do people have?
Cheers

If you're fair Bobbi Brown bronzer in Natural is nice.

I used the Bobbi Brown shimmerbrick and someone told me they were jealous of all the time I get to spend outdoors. I never really went outdoors! Smile

Guerlain Summer Stones is my favorite. I tried many of the powder and gel bronzers and this is hands down the best for me.
It's sheer enough to build the amount of color that I want without becoming a powdery dry mess. The shimmer is subtle and glowy instead of sparkly.
Like Meteorites, it comes in a jar filled with different shades of powder spheres: a pearly one, a copper, a bronze, a gold and a brown. Sometimes I fill a tiny container with a few of the spheres for travel. I use a skunk brush, but for all over color a large kabuki would also work.
$60USD for a large jar that will last a long time.

I liked the CARGO bronzer quite a lot. I'm still using up the last of my Pout brand (rip) right now, though and love it. I hear the Stila poweder bronzer gets great reviews--I have the gel version of the product and don't think much of it.

I'm still loving my Dr. Hauska's bronzer. I've already used up one compact and plan on reordering pretty soon Smile There's no shimmer or glitter, and its not orangey. I love it! Smile

I liked my Nars Bronzer. I thought it looked kind of believable (which is amazing because I am sooo far!)
I'll be brave and post a pic of me wearing it if you want me to!

I chose this picture because you can see the bronzer. Works fairly well on my pale skin not too muddy as I find some bronzers look like dirt on my cheeks (ahem that new bronzer from Smashbox). Only thing is I've misplaced it. Sad

blarg my computer is acting up so if I post this twice I apologize

I like 100% pure bronzer. It's pigmented with cocoa!

Another vote for Dr. Hauschka's bronzer. I just received it from EDS and was surprised at how it gave my very fair skin a delicate glow - nice and healthy looking. I use it instead of blush now.

Aw thanks Jom Very Happy
It's Laguna as I am a very fair maiden. They have a new one I see "Irresistiblement". Looks like a shade in between Laguna (the lightest) and Casino.

I actually use the Victoria Secrets Very Sexy Bronzer in goddess. It's amazing and you can control how much bronze you want.

You can read it up in Make Up Alley, it's got tonnes of great reviews and doesn't cost much
