I’ve been through so many bronzers that promise a healthy sun-kissed glow (PF Butter Bronzer, Mac Give Me Sun, Becca Sunlit Glow, Laura Mercier Tahitian Glow to name a few) and while they look nice, none of them replicate the look of a natural tan my face would have. They all have shimmer in them too which I don’t need.
This bronzer, when applied to the perimeter of my forehead, down my nose, and lightly on my cheekbones looks like I’ve spent the weekend at the beach! It looks like I’ve been out of the sun and just healthy. I wear Mac in NC 25, so if you have a warm complexion and are looking for a natural, matte bronzer this is great. It’s not completely matte either - it has a velvet like finish kind of like natural skin. I just love it. It’s also great for when I fake tan (I don’t fake tan my face) .... I apply this bronzer as usual and then very lightly dust some product all over my face and it darkens my foundation a bit - totally natural looking.
