I have a love/hate relationship with this bronzer... let me explain why.....
Color wise it is the lightest shade in MAC's bronzing collection. I'm an nc30 so after hearing great reviews on it... I thought of buying it... at first I would use it with the 129 brush... and I didn't think it showed up after the first swipe so I would add more... next thing you know I'm orange and dirty looking. The MAC ma suggested the 150... and it is slightly better but still looked like I OD on bronzer.... then I went back to the counter thinking of purchasing refined golden and explained the situation to the ma my experience with golden... she suggested golden and to not apply too much as it can look dirty and use a fluffier brush... final verdict... I actually decided to purchase both golden and refined golden... as golden more matte and natural... refined golden has more glow and pigmentation
Love this!! I have fair-medium skin with lots of pink in it. i have a hard time finding a bronzer that does not have red or pink pigment in them. this one is perfect i dont look like i just put blush all over my face. i have a glow and i can always build more.
the packaging is great, i find that i have to apply a lot to see it on my skin which is fairly light, it does not really give it a healthy shine when applied which i am looking for in a bronzer.
i have had this bronzer for a year and it is still 1/4 full. it is not blotchy and gives a great glow as well as a light tan. i have pale skin and many bronzers are blotchy or orange on my skin, but this bronzer does not do this. my only problem with it is that it wears off after about 3 hours. i would buy this product again, but possibly in the darker shade as i could use less and it would last longer. for people with medium-dark skin i would recommend the darker shade of the mac bronzers to see more of a bronze effect.
I like this bronzer even though its the first ever bronzer I bought and the lady at MAC was right. No matter how much I apply it can never get too dark. I don't use a lot, just 2 sweeps in the pan with my brush for each cheek can give me that nice sunkiss look I always hope for and it lasts all day long. I also like the packaging because its a compact and has a mirror inside which is very similar to the blot powder which I also love. The price is steep at $36 per compact but worth every penny.
my favourite bronzer i dont know why i havent reviewed this yet haha
HG for sure i go through one every month lol

This is my third purchase of this one and like the gal before me, that's rare for me. I usually change up my stuff quite often, but if it ain't broke...well you get it. This color is awesome on my med fair skin without making me look orange. This is my HG bronzer, it looks so natural.
i'm on my second of this bronzer, which is a rare thing for me since i usually either don't finish something or try something different when something runs out but this is a nice bronzer. i've tried a couple others and this one i like because it's not too dark that it looks really fake and it doesn't turn me any weird colors. i'll keep repurchasing.
This is gorgeous on my skin. I use it as all over bronzer...Mix it with lotion am apply on legs and arms....Yes darlin''''
This is the bronzer I use in the winter. When I get darker in the summertime it just doesn't show up anymore! It's a very pretty non-orange bronzer though and I haven't had problems like other people with the specks of shimmer.
