SA suggested this and raved about so I decided to trust her and boy was that a mistake.. This bronzer made my face look pretty orange, even with a light hand. Returning ASAP.
love this color.. I was using Hoola by benefit for over a year, until i discover this new mineralize bronzer from mac. I love the color and finish. Unlike hoola, you can wear give me sun as an allover bronzer, not only contour. It gives you a beautiful toasted color, without being too orange or brown. Make you look alive and radiant. Love it, i will buy an extra one..
staying power? not so great.
I'm NC 44 and I love how this product gives my skin a nice subtle glow. I use Nars tinted moisturizer then set it with this product and it looks amazing. Great for winter when my skin can start looking dull.
My first MAC bronzer purchase ever. I am a NC25 and I use this to warm up my face and contour it. I use it in the hollows of my cheeks, on the edges of my forehead and right under my jawline. You need to use very little of this product to get a beautiful glow, but my main concern with this is that it is VERY easy to go overboard with this. If you ever do go overboard just use some face powder over it and blend it out, but it does get kind of annoying. At first I thought it was a little too expensive but I have had this bronzer for a long time and it does look untouched so it is worth the price. Maybe next time I will go for a bronzer that is a little bit lighter so it's more buildable, but I do love this and use it almost daily and would recommend it to someone maybe a bit tanner.
I have a lot of bronzers but I think this is my favorite one yet. Too many of my other bronzers are too shimmery and some of the matte ones can just look too flat. The mineralized bronzers have a subtle glow, like real skin, that make them a little more natural looking. I'm an NC30(ish) and this is a really nice shade. I looks to me like a light natural tan and isn't orangey to my eyes but perhaps it does have a smidgen of peach? I apply with a duo-fibre or skunk brush and it just makes me look healthy and alive. I'm not sure how long this will last but I'm thinking of getting a backup and tossing all those glitter bomb bronzers in the circular file. :)
Let me just say That I love this stuff. I tried it on at the mac counter nearby since I was running low on my Nars Laguna and fell in love. It makes my skin look so fresh and glowy. I get so many compliments on my skin. It looks very natural on me. Its definitely not contour bronzer because the tint is too warm but this looks amazing on medium skin tones. I went back 2 weeks later to buy 2 back ups for me and 1 for my sister as a gift. She loves it too
I'm a Mac NC20 and I use this as my bronzer and contour product.
I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this. Some days I am in love with it and some days I'm not so sure. If applied properly and carefuly it's a really nice bronzer. I think I'll go with something a bit less dark next time. It can get quite dark, orange-y and...tacky. It's a bit too fake for me. Also when I use the other 2-3 products on my cheeks it doesn't really look like my skin. You can see it all on my skin and it doesn't look so real :( I love MAC but might go over to Nars or YSL for my next bronzer.
MAC NC40 here. I love using this to contour as you can really build up the color however much you want. Not glittery so it looks very natural. Looks best on anyone thats NC25-NC40.
As an NC30-35 gal, this bronzer warms my yellow undertones to a nice sun-kissed glow. Since it is a skin finish natural, the finish is a sheer, buildable, and natural finish. After prepping my face with foundation or concealer, and setting with a powder, I use my sheercover brush, a not-so-dense kabuki with natural fibers to buff the bronzer into the hollows of my cheeks (bringing in back to the hairline), my forehead, my nose, and a very small amount on my chin. I do not use it to contour my jawline because I feel that it makes it look like my neck does not blend with my face.
The color of this bronzer compliments NC tones very well, especially those with stronger yellow tones. I do see myself using this into the winter to give my face some color. If you are an NC30-35 this bronzer is perfect for you. It especially looks great with a peachy blush blending into the cheeks (I use peachy by mac).
