I love this powder! I find it to be a great product! It's a natural sunny look, and it really goes with my NC20 complexion. Used as blush it's really pretty. A little goes a long way too so it lasts--I've had mine for quite a while and am still loving it.
PRAISE JESUS! PRAISE ALLAH! PRAISE BUDAH! Parise MAC! I've found my HG bronzer, I don't know why more people havn't reviewed this! Luckily I didn't have to try tons of bronzers to find my HG, the only other one I tried was Wet 'n' Wild which is a far cry away from Mac. I heard that this was discontinued from somewhere so I didn't think Mac had a bronzer without any sparkle in it so I went to try some concealer, and as I talked to the SA she first recommended golden which I said had too much shimmer, then she said, well if you REALLY want a matte finish you can try Matte bronze, so they obviously didn't discontinue it. Maybe just in the smaller stores, I go to the huge new mac one we have here. Anyway this is the absolutely perfect shade of brown for my NW25 skin. I'd never try anything else!
I like the fact that it makes me more tan, and very easy to apply. It's a definite staple in my makeup bag. I'm still contemplating whether it looks 100% natural though. The fact my neck is lighter than my face contributes to the 'un-natural' part, I doubt anyone will notice since my hair will be covering it. Definitely will repurchase.
This is a really good bronzer. It's great to have a matte bronzer on hand, as I can get all shimmered out. I have just about every bronzer you can imagine, and this one is definately one of the most natural looking ones. It looks scary muddy in the package, but on it looks far more natural than the golden. Good job MAC! Too bad it's Limited Edition...
I don't know if i'm a freak, but when I go on the sunbeds (not anymore, had a bit of a cancer scare.. i'm ok now though :o) anyway, when i went on them I found i'd get a nice tanned face, but i'd always have white panda eyes... even if i didn't wear goggles. This is where matte bronze comes in. I love it!!!! I dust it ever so slighty around my cheeks, but quite a bit heavier around my eyes. The colour blends so well from my eyes to my cheeks, that you'd never know they were different colours. The bronzer lasts too, i've just had a hard day of xmas shopping and i still look fab :oD I sat next to a girl on the train, she looked like she'd had a hefty punch to both cheeks! I actually recommended this to her... don't know what she was using, but it was so wrong. Love the lil case too! Handy mirror.
This stuff is great.. I wear it everyday, even to the grocery store because ts not shimmery and you can make it look as subtle as you want.. Dont be intimidated by the dark color in the package just cause you can apply it very lightly and itll look natural. I put on a blush on top or under it and it really accentuates the color of the blush to give you a nice natural glowy look.MAC's margin frost blush looks good on top.. so does NARS torrid and also MAC fabulush. remember ! apply in moderation then lightly wipe over with a tissue to make it look as natural as possible.. goes with all skin tones.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. No use buying any other bronzer when this gives you a perfect tan for an affordable price. Does not leave dirty streaks like Benefit Hoola or make me look orange like LORAC Glow. I have been searching for the perfect bronzer and now I have found it after lots of money wasted on mediocre bronzers.
I returned the "Golden" Bronzer for this matte one--MUCH better! No fake looking twinklies here, just a nice, rich tan shade. This is a nice shade for my NC 30 skin.:-) The only thing I'm taking off a lipstick is because when I swirl my brush around, there's a lot of excess bronzer that flakes off and gets wasted.
