I have tried MANY bronzing powders since I started wearing makeup ten years ago. I get an amazing glow every summer, but the rest of the year, as a Scandinavian, I need some help. For me, the most important things in a bronzer is that it doesn't bother my skin(with clogged pores, pimples), a more brown and not orange shade, no shimmer. The price is not too important for me, as I tend to have my products for many months. I use the shade "Matte Bronze", which is, as stated, a matte brown shade. It looks quite dark for us with somewhat light skin, but you can build up the colour as you want. Might still be too dark for those with very pale skin though. Pros + Doesn't bother my skin + You can build up the colour + Does not get patchy, unlike other products I've tried + 100% matte and no shimmer + It's brown and not orange + Gives a natural bronzed result, as if you spent some time in the sun(application is key as well, obviously) + Reasonably priced + Comes with a mirror Cons - The packaging is in line with MAC's overall design, but it looks a liiiittle cheap for my taste I love this product! There are other good bronzing powders on the market, but I keep coming back to this one. If you're looking for a bronzing powder that gives you more of a highlighted glow with shimmer, this is not the shade. I haven't tried the other shades they sell as they all seem to contain shimmer, but they should be good as well if you're not into a matte look. But if you're looking for a product that gives you a brown(and not orange) and natural matte finish, this is the one!
