Platinum Bronze bronzer in "Summersoft" - SPF27
This is a beautiful bronzer / complexion warmer for fair and light skinned girls who want to add a bit of warmth to their skin. The texture is light and smooth, with subtle golden shimmer. I'm not really into tanned skin (quite the reverse normally) but like a little bit of colour for summer - so for me, this is the perfect product. It adds colour and warmth and a nice healthy glow without making me look like a dirty orange. It comes in a black compact with bronze text on the lid / mirror inside. Also comes with a great little puff that perfectly applies the product. I think, though I'm not sure, that this may be available in Asia only. This is one of my favourite ever products.
MAC's bronzing powder are the best out there and they are so natural on the skin and the packaging is quite simple yet lovely. I love how i can just slip it in my handbag and how it comes with a mirror. As for the product, no other bronzer can ever beat this! from the price to the quality this is such a beautiful product and i will repurchase this bronzer in 'bronze' once im done.
I have this in Matte Bronze and I find it to be a great product! It's a natural sunny look, and it really goes with my NC20 complexion. A little goes a long way too so it lasts.
I'm a bronzer freak and I didn't find this product to do anything special. I have it in "Golden". The colour seemed a little too flat on my deep olive skin. It reminded me of the Clinique bronzing powder. The texture felt quite heavy on and it seemed to clog my pores a bit. Not overly impressive for me.
January or June - tan or not - I always wear this product, rain or shine. It is never too much, and gives my skin great color - even when I don't have a fabulous tan. It's not AMAZING, but it's definitely worth a try.
I have this bronzer in 'golden'. Packaging nice, although nothing special, and colour really perks up my skin, giving it a glow.
Fairly easy to apply, although the girl at the mac counter was much better than me at it! Use a big brush and load bronzer on one side, so when applied to cheekbones it will define them nicely
Warning though- This gives shimmer so if applied directly to your forehead, is not a great look. All over bronzer looks tacky with this so only use it for cheeks, nose and just under chin - this will give a sunkissed effect
i use this product pretty sparingly so i don't think i'd ever have to repurchase. i don't really know how bronzers are supposed to work, but here's how i use it. if say my powder or foundation is a bit too light on my forehead, i just brush a little of it on so it looks more natural. i also use this as a blush for when i only wanna pack a couple items with me for trips. a good shade for my nc42 skintone. cheers to mac=) . . again, hehe
UGHHHH!! I usually love MAC products, but not this one. The color is nice, but the texture just wasn't good for my skin. My skin is oily and has a tendency to break out. It made my skin shiny and he next day after I used it, I had broken out a bit. I won't use this anymore. I gave it to my sister who has perfect olive skin and it looks great on her!
I just bought Refined Golden bronzer last week, and it is absolutely beautiful! I love it so much that I chose it as my 1st review here on MUA.
This has more shimmer than Golden, but it is finely milled. You don't end up with weird flecks in the wrong places, but rather a nice, healthy glow. Now, I'm an oily-combination skinned gal, and for years I avoided using shimmery cheek products like the plague in the summer. But i find that this bronzer does not accentuate the shinies, even in Iowa's very humid weather (and yes, it gets VERY muggy here).
I'm also a PPP and had pretty much given up on getting a bronzer to look nice on me without looking dirty. But as soon as the MA swiped this on me, I fell in love. It gives me a look like I've been vacationing on a beautiful beach in Mexico. And since I can't afford to go to Mexico, I'll have to make do with the bronzer. ;) Luckily it performs wonderfully!
I love this bronzer. I've been slacking at the beach so this gives back my glow. It looks so natural and it gives depth to my cheek bones
