I´ve been using MAC`s in Golden for a while, but it might be too light&subtle for me when I´m getting more tan in spring/summer.

so i think I wanna try a different brand.

any suggestions???

do you want something shimmery or matte?

i have a mac bronzer that's matte, btu i don't think they sell it anymore. i think hoola from benefit is matte also. but it's dark. those are the only ones i know of.

sorry I don´t have access to NARS or Victoria´s secret either
and I don´t want to order online cause I like to look at the products before I buy them.

brands I can get over here are Bobby Brown,Estee Lauder,Chanel,Shiseido,TBS, YSL,Dior,Clinique (can´t think of any more)

I like the irridescent loose bronzing powders by MAC. I mix a bit in with my moisturizer and I get nice even color, not too sparkly. I use the Refined golden (I think)

A cheaper alternative is the bronzer by the Body Shop. It has bronzing beads and gives great natural color, not orangy. I used that before the MAC.

I don´t get it..we have MAC and BB too. I should write a letter to all those brands that we can´t get and tell them to open counters in Vienna.

i prefer matte cus i hate the damn sparkles on my face makes me thinki am shiney and i get nervous.

bonnie bell has a good matte one i use golden tan

my salon sells one that has shimmers to it california tan suddenly sun that's pretty good for those who like a bit of shimmer.

physicians formula makes a good one that is more on the matte side too i have that one also.

they all look very natural i wear them as a powder since i tan year round so i dust some on then finish with a bit of mac blot

I guess, but I don´t have a credit card and since I financially depend on my dad he wouldn´t approve of me getting one ;-(guess he still remembers how I abused it when I had one when I was an exchange student in the US...those were the days

the use of only cash has kept me at a sane level of obsession if i had a CC i'd seriously be living in a box with a bunch of make up.

i'd be that bag lady with the shopping cart but instead of hauling around junk i'd have my make up and a mirror, perfumes and my chinchillas lol they'd have to settle for a smaller cage then instead of the big one they have now.

I love NARS Casino but as you said you don't have access to it.

I also like Shiseido Golden Bronze powder - comes in a compact with three colours in it. You swirl them together and it gives a nice healthy look to the skin.

Arielle, if you have access to Armani, try their Sheer Powder Bronzer #1. It's not too shimmery, but gives the perfect bronzey glow.

Also, if you have acess to drugstore/chemist brands, check out Bonne Bell Glimmer Bronze in Gold n Glitz. That's my ultimate favorite b/c it casts a soft shimmer & the bronze effect doesn't make anyone look orange...unless of course, the user has a heavy hand.
