I hate orange/ red colour bronzer, or oompa loompa look. Has anybody seen a yellow toned or light golden bronzer. Preferably non shiny. Thank you

It's not yellow-toned but by far the best bronzer for paler skins is Benefit Dallas - it's plum-based rather than orange-based. Sleek's blush in Sunrise is a good dupe, if more shimmery.

Iirc, Avon's bronzer in the lightest shade is quite yellow/light. Boots Natural Collection does quite a natural-looking one too.

plum based??

Very interested in this as although I love my NARS laguna, I do feel it is just not quite the right colour for me.

Tried the Dallas. Not for me. Thanks. It's a yellow / gold bronzer I am looking for.

I feel the same way but most bronzers had a red cast that shows up my red cheeks.

I did think that Guerlain's original bronzer (Terracotta) in 01 was quite yellow goldish. I think one of the cheapie makes does a goldish one - sorry cannot remember if it was Collection 2000, MUA, 2true (or whatever the make is called) or who it was. Maybe Rimmel???

Most are extremely shimmery. This reminds me of an old powder shimmery thing. I bought decades ago from Mary Quant it was a golden shimmer and I loved it! Shame that make up has gone downhill now (grotty packaging and all pastely. Mary Quant used to do fab blushers (including some bronzey colours and terrific lipsticks. I am in pain just remembering how I used to save up for a blusher or lipstick.

Thanks for all your replies. I got one years ago it was a Coty blusher called Golden. ..... It was lovely. It was a blusher but you could use it as a bronzer. Coty don't seem to sell make up here anymore.

You sometimes see it on market stalls (Coty) and you could google it.

Half price!

Light bronze is the yellowy shade.
