this year's bronzer from mark is a gorgeous, shimmery subtle bronzer that would be great for year-round bronzing. it has a slight golden glimmer to it, kinda similar to mac's beauty powders-just a subtle, glowy color, nothing dark or overwhelming. the packaging is the same as mark's powder buff foundation with the powder and mirror on top and a compartment underneath for the applicator. in this case, the applicator is a decent-quality flat brush with really soft bristles. i wouldn't use this for everyday application of this product, but for on-the-go touchups, this will be great. this is a great soft bronzer, and i think it would look great on nearly every skintone.
