Review: I originally intended to purchase the YSL Les Sahariennes Bronzing Stone but it was out of stock online and in store during the Sephora Spring VIB Sale so I decided to get this. Make Up For Ever (MUFE) is not a brand that I use frequently. The last MUFE product I had was their setting spray which I used back in 2012. Since then, I have never bought any from the brand. What made me buy this is it is advertised as a waterproof bronzer and hot weather + waterproof sounds genius to me. Another thing is the formula. It is a gel to powder formula which makes it really blend out nicely on the skin. You can build it up without looking cakey due to its sheer consistency - it really blends like second skin as it claims. It is long long-wearing and despite the sheer consistency, it is pigmented. I love this particular shade (35i) because it is a warmer tone but because it is sheer in consistency it does not apply like a fake-tan orange shade. It also has a nice sheen or iridesence to it, which I love. I like to use this shade as a blush at times. I love the formula, consistency and long-wear time of this bronzer that I also bought the shade 20M (a cool-toned matte shade) for regular bronzing around the perimeter of the face.
The box packaging is black with white typography and a matte finish. The actual casing of the bronzer is brown with a high shine finish but it has a semi-see through look. This product has 11g, which I think is decent. Would I repurchase? Yes.
