Love the product. Bought the Sunbeam...it goes on well and looks beautiful. The product, however, is so fragile that it broke apart and crumbled probably by my third use. I would look to better packaging - perhaps separators to keep each in its place even if it does crumble. It is disappointing to spend the money for a superior product to have this happen almost immediately.
Very disappointed that this product crumbled. Very frustrated that I spent the money on this and it's not usable I really like this color combination but can't see spending this much money for something that doesn't last.
This is a fantastic product but like most of the reviews, it is fragile. If you drop it even at small distances or it gets giggled about in travel, the 4 colors break apart and once they do, they are too powdery and apply too heavily to use. I also noticed that the sunbeam color arrangement has been changed. the two lighter colors used to be next to one another on the top and the two darker next to one another on the bottom which made it easier to control the mix with your brush. Now they are opposite one another. would love to see it arranged back.
I love this product but, unfortunately, it is so delicate that even when you are super careful with it crumbles. I purchased this product three times, it is the perfect color combo for me, obiviously, I keep buying it! But each time long before it should (maybe an 1/8 of its lifetime) it crumbles. I have tried everything from keeping it out of my makeup bag & inserting cotton rounds between the lid & protective cover, sadly I'm always heartbroken when it still crumbles. :(
I purchased the "Moonglow Bronzer" and have been disappointed in the product in how it lasts. I love the blend of colors, but it breaks up and doesn't stay in cake form to get the nice blend of color. It becomes powder and then makes a mess when you open it. I was hoping to travel with it and it doesn't seem to hold up in travel no matter how careful I am.
Love this product but agree that it is very fragile. I put a large cotton ball inside and my browser has traveled safely on several cruises.
For years I have been using the Jane Iredale line and have been very pleased. Two weeks ago while restocking on some other items I decided to give the quad bronzer a shot. Huge mistake! After just one week the bronzer started crumbling and eventually the individual squares popped up. This product was a complete let down! Wish I would have read some reviews before buying it as it seems others have had the same issue. For only being able to use it for two weeks, it was a great color.
I love this bronzer. It has the perfect amount of shimmer and does not irritate my skin. However, it is too dark. Please make a version for extra fair skin. Similar to the moonglow, but lighter. Thank you!
This is the first Iredale product that I actively dislike. I gave it 5 or 6 chances to win me over, but no dice. It leaves a fake metallic coating over my skin even though I used only a little bit. I've tried using only one of the shades solo, combaintions of two or three, or swirled my brush around all of them for a total blend. The effect is always the same. It even, I believe, enhances the worse features of the skin on my cheeks, making pores appear larger and "highlighting" wrinkles I didn't even know I had. I am really bummed about this, because it isn't cheap. It looked so pretty and in spite of negative reviews about its fragility, I saved up and splurged. I wish I had restrained myself.
I was extremely excited to receive this as a gift. It worked like a dream and was my new favourite, go-to bronzer. However, a week or so into use, it completely shattered! I never carried it around or brought it anywhere, it simply sat in my makeup bag in my room. The only way it could've broken is I guess by bumping around when I was carrying it next door to the bathroom? That's far to fragile for practicality. I no longer use my moon glow quad bronzer as all the colours are smashed and crumbled together so it's far to messy to use. This experience was especially disappointing as I have always loved my Jane Iredale makeup in the passed and thats practically all I use on my face. This product is to expensive to be so fragile.
I love the bronzer. It works great on my cheeks and on my eye lids. It says on my eye lids much better than your regular eye shadow which creases and smudges within an hour of putting it on.
This is the best blush. I also use the moonglow bronzer. They are the best products that I have ever used. I have slowly converted all my make-up to JI...love it! It lasts for months and you use very little.
I have tried both Rosedawn and Sunbeam. I Love the color it gives my skin. Not too blushy or too bronzy. I also love the individual colors I can use as eyeshadows or highlighters. Both colors I recieved broke within the first week after just swirling my brish in them. It is still useable and the color is still nice, but I dont get the advantage of having the four sepearate colors. It is pricey, and besides the breaking, is totally worth every penny. But due to the breaking I cant give it five stars. I will continue to purchase but I wish I could use it more than a week without it crumbling.
A must have! I love this multi use bronzer, its very versatile and you can make so many different looks with it. A natural look with a soft luxury feel plus the colors work perfectly with my global med light olive skin tone. Combine it with just kissed lip and cheek stain and that's all you need. I use it for my eyes highlighting blush and bronzer. However it is very delicate, I have purchased three and all three have eventually broken, even the last one that I wouldn't take out of the house for fear of dropping it, I am sure that this is partially due to me using both the pinks a lot more than the other two colors. Please make the two pink shades available individually. The one good thing is even when it's broken it is still a very nice color.
I read the reviews about the fragility of this product but those who used it also loved it so I took a chance. It arrived completed shattered. It was like fine ground powder. No chance at all to test it to see if I like it. I have emailed about the condition and I'm waiting for a response. I don't know that I'll try it again.
Great stuff! My skin is fair to medium, depending on the season. I also have freckles. I've tried the Moonglow and the Sunbeam. I do prefer the Moonglow b/c it works better with my skin tone. The darker bronzers in the Sunbeam are quite dark and can look unnatural; definately for a darker skin tone. I have it and make it work, but will order the Moonglow next time. My personal favorite in the Moonglow compact is the flush/pinkish highlighter. It is so soft and makes my face just glow without looking fake. The bronze tones are perfect for getting a sun kissed look. I also use it when I have a special occasion for defining my cheeks and jaw and doing a little sculpting. Lasts a long time, but I do run out of the highlighter first. My favorite way to use this product is when I'm in a hurry and don't want to put make up on. Like the video will show you...you can use it as a blush, highlighter, bronzer, and eye shadow. I do this over my mineral tinted moisturizer - put a dap of mascara on - and I'm done. Clean natural look that is easy and fast. I would also like to add that the quality of all products is unsurpassed. A lot of care is put into manufacutrin, packaging and when mailed. The little extras to make it neat and smelling good is greatly appreciated. Returns are easy and the customer service has always been very helpful. Do not hesitate to call them. They can help out with color and there are samples that can be mailed as well.
my former employer sold JI for a long time and I have usedd it since then. I love the powders, eye shadows, etc. the one thing that I loved the most was the sample of eye trio called Moonglow. I loved the colors and the way it stayed on. unfortunatley, like someone else said it crumbled toward the last of it. please tell me where or if i can get another one of these.
This is one of my most fav products, I use this more than anything else, its very versatile and can make many different looks. This and the just kissed lip stain is about all you need in your bag, provides a nice glow and works great as a highlighter. very complimenting and a must have. I do wish that just the two pinks could be purchased as a duo.
This product does it all! I use Moonglow as a bronzer, highlighter, and even eye shadow! The only bad thing I have found is, you don't want to use too much on your face or you will look overly shiny, so use sparingly!
I believe other reviews can push people to purchase items and after reading many positive reviews about this one I decided too try it in spite of the high cost. I did a bit of research and chose the Moonglow because of my very fair skin. There is a "rusty sunset" color in the quad and that is the only color that even shows up on my face. The other three barely show up at all. I have a MAC bronzer compact with pinks and golds that I use along with this one and it's much better. Interestingly enough, this quad never fell part or broke into a million pieces. I don't know what people do to their cosmetics, but mine are in a cosmetics bag inside my purse and it has stayed intact. No breakage.
I love you Jane Iredale, but please fix this major flaw in this wonderful bronzer. This stuff is the BEST stuff on the market hands down, but it breaks with the slightest touch to it. I've ordered 2 so far and they have both broken within the last 2 months. I want to ask for a refund, but there is almost no point since I will just be buying more. But this flaw needs to be fixed. It should not break this easily. I don't have this issue with your pressed powder or your blush, yet the bronzer breaks constantly. Please fix this flaw so I can continue buying this amazing product!
love this use it for eyes and cheeks, mine has broken up in a alot of pieces, still use it's just messy now, this is very fragile and you really can't put it in your purse or it breaks.
Love this product and you can use it on the eyes, lips, etc. Unfortunately mine broke while I was traveling so I just mixed all four shades together and I like it even better now!! It still works great although it's loose powder now and I can only recommend it.
I love this so much and have bought it in every color, but, unfortunately, it breaks every time so I never get the pleasure of using it for very long. I don't think I will buy it again. Sorry
I absolutely love this Bronzer. When I use it I don't feel so washed out. It also adds a subtle sparkle. I just purchased my second one in Moonglow again. I use my own brush as I felt the fanned brush didn't work right for me.
I have had this for about a week. I have used it every day, and it has amazed me! I use it on my eyes, cheeks & lips! It is many things in one product! I carry this with me everywhere I go! I put some cottonballs in it so it wouldn't crumble in my bag (thank you to the woman who gave that tip in a review!), and to the women who said it crumbled, well, this product just has to have a little more TLC than other products. But this is THE best product I have gotten so far! THANK YOU, Jane Iredale! :)
These are my go to pallets for travel! It has eyes, cheeks, lips and bronzer all in one!! I can't live with out all 3 choices! The moonglow is light and makes a beautiful gold glow. The sunbeam is warm and I love the copper tones for a day or night look. The rose dawn has beautiful lavender and rose tones that really brighten my skin.
I love this product but after the different sections are used a bit, it breaks up easily so very disappointed that without better packaging you won't be able to get your money's worth out of it. I see other similar comments so adding mine in hope that JI comes up with a better compact for this product.
I wear it daily. Love how it makes my skin glow... The problem is it's definitely fragile and broke in the pieces after a few months. It's still usable even thought it broke apart. I don't like the container. Kinda wish it was one piece that has a pop up top.
My mom bought me this bronzer has a christmas gift one year and its been the best bronzer I have ever used! It broke in my make-up case though, so be careful of that. But well worth the money. Every friend of mine who has used it always comments on how amazing it is. I've used it down to the last grain- time to buy a new one!
This is the most natural looking blush I've ever used. Unfortunately it does crumble after much use. A spa rep who carries this product suggested mixing the loose powder with body lotion for an all-over bronze look and she was right! Makes a nice shimmer lotion for summer. I wish JI could package this so it doesn't crumble.
Love Moonglow. You get to blend your perfect bronze with the four color palette. You get control and polish and a fabulous glow.
I absolutely love, love this bronzer! This product makes my morning routine so much easier. I use the colors individually for eye make-up and then blend to put on my face.
Hi--this is my all-time favorite blush bronzer/eyeshadow, but I am now on my 4th one because it is very fragile and every single one has broken. I don't carry it in my purse either. It's not cheap and I have spent a fortune on it now having to replace it all the time. But what can I do --it is otherwise perfect.
I love this product , but I also have had problems with it crumbling , especially when I have used 1/2 or more of the cake. I do not carry it in my purse , so it doesn't get rough treatment. The last time I purchased it on line , It arrived already crumbled.I have used a a plastic baggie and a pie crust roller to finish crushing it to a fine powder and transferred the powder to an empty plastic jar with a topper with holes in it and a solid lid.
So versatile, natural, beautiful. Just what i wanted! I use a fan brush to get a blended effect. I also love using just the brown palette to contour.
This is one of the best bronzers I have ever used. Its very easy to control the shade of bronze since there are four colors in the compact. I have dropped this several tiems and its still in tact. I will buy this again!
There isn't a thing I don't LOVE about this light bronzer. I use it all over as a final step with my fan brush and it leaves a light, natural, golden glow. Perfect product!!
I purchased the Moonglow Goldne Bronzer expectin to love it. However, i found this bronzer gave me a orange look. This would be good for someone with a medium/dark complection.
Love both of these but have to order again since mine broke too! I am going to purchase the sunbeam as I prefer it over the moonglowm colorwise.
I saw that someone commented on that it is fragile. I had a Jane Iredale employee give me a good tip. If you are going to be traveling put cotton balls inside of it to hold the powder intact.
I love the bronzer, however a little upset how fragile it is, any small bump and it will break. Ordering another one though, Love the color and glow.
Never before had I tolerated or appreciated any foundation or powder (and I am 47)until Moonglow bronzer. Moonglow blends my blush and concealer perfectly creating a soft and natural glow and FEEL. Additionally, with the 4 color compact, you have the opprotunity to create the shade the best matches your clothing and a more dramatice glow for evening wear. A light brushing makes you feel polished and natural. This is my third order and thanks to Allure for their recommendation!
I wanted to send you an email and tell you and interested customers how much I like my Sunbeam quad bronzer and fan brush. I watched your make-up videos for application techniques, and found that I could easily duplicate the procedure. I love the quad, as it is so versitile. It is a complete make-up system along with my mineral powder. I love Jane Iredale, as it simplifies my routine, I have beautiful results, and I am sun pretected. I am a very happy customer. At the age of 65 I have tried many products, and I have finally found a product line that is perfect. Thank You!
Love this bronzer but it broke in my purse so be careful. I liked it so much that I ordered a second one. Hopefully this one will stay intact.
