The only bronzer I use!
I'm pretty light-skinned (think NC20) so I always stray away from bronzers because of how unnatural they look on me. I have all three of these bronzers and let me just say that I've been using them everyday. I love Toasted for a natural matte contour; it's extremely pigmented, so I make sure to pick up only a little on my brush and it blends perfectly. I think this would be perfect for medium skintones.
Baked is a beautiful shimmery bronze color that I love using on my cheeks instead of blush, or using it to bronze the sides of my forehead and cheekbones. It also gives a nice bit of sheen.
Gilded is by far my favorite because I feel it was crafted for those with lighter skintones. It's more sheer than Baked, while giving a beautiful gold sheen to your cheeks. This is my favorite to use on my cheeks. I think this would be more of a highlighter on darker skintones.
Over all, these bronzers are so smooth and blendable, and I think they can work on everyone. Absolutely recommend these!

Absolutely LOVE this product!!
This product is amazing!! I was looking for a really nice bronzer to make skin look flawless and sun kissed! This product does just that! A lot of bronzers leave you looking orange and you can see the makeup. This soaks right into the skin and leaves a flawless finish like you just spent the day in the sun!
And it lasts because you dont need to use a lot!!
Totally love it and would recommend it to anyone who has a medium skin and is just looking for that extra pop of a natural sun kiss look

My favorite BRONZER - TOASTED
I don't know why I don't hear about this bronzer more often, it is by far my favorite! No sparkles in it, so it looks natural! I've been buying this bronzer consistently since 2006 and I have no reason to change to another bronzer. I love this so much! I use the bronzer everyday and each has lasted me about 2.5 years. I just bought my 3rd one a few months ago. Great value! :)

Gilded = Glowing
I bought Gilded cause I wanted to add a little color to my skin with out looking orange. This really worked well. It's not too dark, it works perfect if you're fair skinned. It just gives you this "glow". I applied it & went to work thinking it didn't really show up that much, but I received compliments as soon as I walked in the door! What girl doesn't love that!?! This product simply lights up your face. If you want a nice subtle glow then Gilded is for you!

I love this. Unfortunately, it kind of gets messy, or perhaps that was because of my particular brush or application process; the baked goodness kind of crumbles and gets everywhere if you swirl your brush around too much, as I am accustomed to doing, so be careful. :)
Once you get past that, though, the shade is great. You don't need a lot. I've been using the same one for ... must be two years now.
Gilded is very light. It's more a shimmer than a bronzer, on my very tan skin. Even during the winter, when I am not-tan at all, it's just a shimmer on my skin. Can't see any color to it.
But the other two - Toasted and Baked - are great. Toasted, the matte shade, is darker and shows up more. It may lean orange on cooler skin tones, but it looks great on my warm skin. Baked is good for a subtle glow. I use them as bronzers or along the cheekbone as blushes depending on the look.

Best i have used in along time!!!!!
i have been through so much makeup in my life, that i could fill a trash bag with all the makeup i have gotten. Once i saw it in the store i had a felling this would be the one and only makeup i use. But some many memories came back to me as soon as i got home frome the store, thinking about oh this won't work out you made a mistake and got more makeup thats not gonna work out. But all that changed when i put it on. It made my face so smooth that i was shocked that i have finally found a makeup right for me! Thank you so much!

I recently purchased the UD Baked Bronzer in Gilded. I absolutely loved it! I bought one with quite a lot of shimmer, but I found that it was blendable enough that I could still contour with it without it being too unnatural looking. This bronzer also is very nice for giving you an "all over glow" taking any nice powder brush, such as the UD powder brush, you can dust this bronzer lightly onto your face and have the most beautiful, beachy, tanned glow that brightens up your complexion. For your body, this is great for chest contouring, stomach contouring, side contouring, and pretty much anything. This bronzer is absolutely amazing. I honestly recommend you at least try it! It's fantastic! :)

Perfect color. Easily blends. No streaky, un-natural look like some.

Fantastic for fair to light skin tones
I bought this bronzer in "Baked" and I love it. I have a fair, neutral skin tone, so I'm wary of trying new bronzers, but this one applies very sheer and looks quite natural. It looks really shimmery in the package, but on my skin it gives a soft "glow." I've worn it during the day at work and at night with a heavier application, and even as an eye shadow. Great product.

My favorite bronzer by far!
I can't recommend this bronzer enough. After reading rave reviews about the Urban Decay Baked Bronzer, I decided to give it a try. I picked the shade "Gilded". While looking in the mirror after the first use, I immediately fell in love. I've had problems with bronzers in the past that made my skin look orange. This bronzer has a subtle shimmer, just enough so your skin looks fresh. It's very pigmented so you only need to use a minimal amount, and because of that, it will last you for a long time. It also has great staying power. If I apply this in the early morning, I only have to do a light touch up once in the late afternoon. I love this bronzer and would most definitely recommend it to everybody.

ABDOLUTELY LOVE THIS BRONZER!
I have tried bronzer after bronzer because you can get a bronzer that makes you look orange and fake then you can get a different one that is TOO Shimmery! But this one is perfect! I just apply after using my concealer. Its easy to apply and goes on EVEN which is important! It gives you a nice GLOW! But doesn't make you look like OOMPA LOOMPA!

Looks really pretty dusted over the apples of your cheeks.
This is one of my favorite things to wear as a blush on my cheeks. I love the pretty gold shimmer that illuminates in the sunlight, with the natural peachy tone. I definitely recommend this bronzer if you're going for that natural sun-kissed look. The product also seems to last a really long time. A little goes a very long way. I love this stuff, definitely my favorite bronzer.

Not too heavy
This bronzer is natural-looking, unlike a lot of bronzers, which are orange-y. Gilded is my favorite. Start with just a bit and layer on if you want a more dramatic look.

I love the baked bronzers with a passion. Being a raven haired, pale skinned person, I have found tanning next to impossible. These bronzers completely eliminated the need to tan. Gilded is my favorite, a beautiful shimmery bronze, it makes me feel like a grecian goddess everytime I wear it. Application is smooth, the bronzer glides on so easily, perfectly accentuating my subtle cheekbones, and leaving a matte finish with just a hint of glimmer. These bronzers are by far the best on the market.

Best bronzer ever
My fave bronzer. Gives my cheeks a lovely subtle, natural glow :). This is always a part of my make-up collection...xxx

perfect for beautifully bronzed skin!
I love this product for shimmery bronzed skin!
It is great for the summer time, however I do not use it often in the winter time. It gives a very beautiful bronzed glow to the skin and has just the right amount of shimmer in it, it is not like some products that I have tried before that have too much shimmer in them. However, I do find myself having to put on a lot of this product to get the color that I like. I think it is because of the golden shimmer. I feel like if I would have gotten the matte color it would go on way easier. But over all I do love this product!

Perfect for Contouring
I bought this product to use as an all over bronzed but soon realized that it's perfect for contouring. It adds just the right amount of shimmer without overdoing it and doesn't look "muddy" like some other bronzes. Overall this is a great product and I will be repurchasing it again soon!

Such a great bronzer!
This has been my favorite bronzer for over a year now. I use "toasted" which is great because it is a matte bronzer and doesn't make you look shiny. It also doesn't make you look orange at all which is a common problem I have had in the past with bronzers. Will use it forever!

This bronzer gave me back my pregnancy glow !!
When I was pregnant with my 2 year old daughter I had the most amazing skin that I have ever had in my entire life. I had a natural glow to my skin that I just couldn't believe. After my pregnancy I no longer had that natural glow anymore and since then, I have been searching everywhere for a product that could give me that dewy naturally bronzed look that I wanted until I came across the baked bronzer. It works so well with my skin tone and goes on so smoothly that just a little goes a long way . It's Awesome and affordable and perfect for me! I am in love !

Dream come true for fair complexions!
I have always wanted to be able to wear bronzer but with my super pale skin I have ended up looking like a pumpkin whenever I have tried. Baked Bronzer is a miracle product! It lives up to the claims of no streaking and the Gilded shade works like a charm with my pale skin tone. It even photographs well - I received compliments on my complexion after using this product! I never thought I would be able to wear bronzer, Baked Bronzer is a dream!

for the essential winter glow
Gilded has been one of my essential make-up companions all winter long. I just started using bronzers last year when I discovered that I can have that dewey sun-kissed glow all year long. Anyone's complexion can benefit from a dusting of bronzer, as it gives a healthy, tinted glow no matter what light you're in. This collection is wonderful because they are baked, so the powder is dense and goes on evenly and smoothly. Use the right brush to contour the more protruding areas of the face and you will love the look of instant healthy shadows you can create.

Won't leave home without it
This is the best bronzer ever. I've tried others and always end up coming back!! I refuse to leave home without it and even took it to the hospital when I had my baby!! This is a makeup must have!

If you're looking for a fabulous new bronzer then look no further! Urban Decay's range of bronzers are all you'll ever need!
As a lover of experimenting with make-up and the UD cosmetics I can honestly say that these bronzers are great; they are well pigmented, have great cover and looks beautiful on almost all, if not all, skin types.
The bronzer itself comes in a pretty, well made case and works wonders- honestly, it's worth every penny.
I couldn't recommend this product more if I tried, and this is the same for virtually all Urban Decay products.

No other Bronzers compare!
I have never done a review for a product, so my doing so now should definitely account for something. I have used several Bronzers on the market from cheaper to expensive brands. For a while I was happy with my MAC Bronzer until I decided to give UD a try. I had been eyeballing this Baked Bronzer for months, when I finally decided to just go for it. From the first swipe on my cheeks, I was instantly won over. I am a fairly light-medium complexioned Asian girl, and love both blush and recently Bronzers. I find that with this Bronzer in Baked, I can still use both blush and Bronzer, or use the Bronzer as a blush by itself for a more natural look. I am now obsessed with this Bronzer in Baked, and very curious to check out the other two colors.

I can’t help but swatch this bronzer every time I’m in store, I’m in LOVE! My favorite shade is Baked. It’s the perfect shade for fair to medium skin tones and leaves a gorgeous flushed orangey bronze sheen on the cheeks. It looks great on its own without blush or highlighter. I’m planning on splurging on this very soon! It is a bit pricy for a bronzer, but is worth the quantity & quality. I wish they made a smaller version for half the price! Gilded is my second favorite, it has gold veining in the bronzer that leaves gold shimmer on the cheek along with the bronzer. It’s very pretty if a hint of gold is what you’re looking for. I’m not too interested in the shade Toasted only because it’s way too dark for my complexion and also it’s a matte bronzer that many people prefer, but I personally love the naturel glow that Baked gives. Amazing Bronzers can’t find anything that compares!

Great Product - Wish there was better variety
I love the pigmentation of these bronzers, and I love the consistency of Toasted, the matte bronzer. It goes on smooth, and does give you a nice glow, it's just a little orangey for my skin and leaves me longing for more colour selection.

I LIKE IT! I REALLY LIKE IT!
I call this my goddess dust, because that what i feel like after applying.
This bronzer gives you the most amazing allday glow. You dont need alot, so this bronzer will last you for a while
JUST CALL ME CLEOPATRA!!!!!! :D

sun kissed glow
This bronzer is wonderful. All you need is a fluffy brush and a few strokes of product and youll achieve perfectly sclutped cheeks! I love how the UD bronzer is not as pigmented as TooFaced so if youre in a rush and your brush picks up too much product you wont accidently end up with fake, streaky cheeks. This bronzer also highlights the collerbone and décolletage area quite well.

Oh my bronzer, Oh my bronzer, Oh my...
The quest to find the perfect shade of bronzer is an individual quest as skin tones come in a wide variety and unfortunately, bronzers don't. It's either muddy brown or shimmering orange for the most part. This bronzer is seamless and it doesn't break me out on my chest which may sounds odd but it's a piece in my bronzer puzzle. I highly recommend you give this product a try.
