I have to agree with all reviews before mine. I tried my hardest to use this sparingly as MAC has (soooo stupidly and frustratingly) discontinued it, but alas, I finally have ran out. Last night was the last time I was able to use it, and I literally scraped the pan clean to do so. (Mind you, I purchased this in 2013 from the Temperature Rising collection). I have more than 100 bronzers from everyone from Tom Ford to La Mer to NARS to Tarte, and I have yet to find one that had the amazing color match, longevity and overall perfect wear of this one:

1. The color perfectly complements and looks natural on my odd skin tone (I am very fair but olive, a tone not many brands recognize or make appropriately toned shades for - MUFE #117, or now called Y225. ByTerry Sheer Expert Foundation IN #3 Cream Beige, NARS SheerGlow in Gobi)

2. The formula truly is longwear - it lasts all day and stays natural and true to color (in person and in photographs) from the time I apply it at 8am to the time I get home - I’ve gotten home as late as 11pm and sometimes even 3am if I’m going out to party on a Friday night after work - this stuff simply does NOT budge or turn muddy or ruddy. I live in on the infernal heat and humidity of Miami, and if a cosmetic product can do those things, then it truly is bulletproof!


3. It does not break me out, dry me out, or irritate my skin AT ALL - I react to soooo many products as I have sensitive skin and I use many acids and peels - this stuff does not even slightly disrupt my skin’s condition.

4. The pan lasts forever! Granted, once I realized MAC wasn’t making this a permanent or carryover product, I became very selective about when i used it and how much, but you still got quite a decent amount of product and good value for the overall price.


I am so sad and I’ve scoured the Internet high and low for YEARS looking to buy another, but there are no reputable sellers I can find. What’s wrong with you, MAC Corporate?! Everyone loves this bronzer and gave it top reviews! Bring it back! Simply put it in a pretty package and associate it with a new collection release, and make it permanent!!! Pleaseeee! I swear I would start a petition if I could! I hope someone at MAC reads MakeupAlley religiously and answers my prayers! :)))) This is the HG of all HG bronzers !!!

I cannot believe there are only 5 reviews on this so far. AMAZING bronzer. It's actually the only bronzer I've ever purchased a full size of because I'm so picky. First the color, neutral to slightly red so it looks perfect with my pinky/red undertones. Most bronzers look super orange on me. I've even had compliments when I wear this. Second, texture is fabulous. Blends beautifully. And I can easily use just a little and build it up. I really wanted to like MAC golden bronzer but the texture is so aweful I can't bring myself to buy it. I have this in the temperature rising packaging, which is goregous, but does get dirty easily as it's the rubber. But I cannot recommend this enough.

This is probably the best bronzer I've ever used. I have fair skin and this doesn't have any orangy/red undertones, but rather it gives a beautiful olive, brownish glow to the skin. The texture is what sets it apart in my opinion, buttery soft, incredibly easy to blend and matte, but not flat. For me this is better than Nars Laguna in the cool toned bronzers department. I wish this was made permanent!

Sun Dipped Pro Longwear bronzer is a really great product. I passed on Nude on Board as it was too yellow based.
Sun Dipped looks natural on my fair skin, not orange or muddy ish. It applies very smoothly and blends well with the Bobbi Brown bronzing brush, I highly recommend this brush for facial bronzing. It works very well with this bronzer too picking up the perfect amount of Sun Dipped. Looks natural and wears well and the bronze rubberized packaging is a nice touch! Very impressed with this bronzer. One of the best MAC products I have ever used in my over a decade long MAC love affair. Hah

I actually really like this bronzer. I picked it up on a whim since I loved the Summer 2013 packaging. I have sooooo many bronzers and was using Tom Ford until this. I love it, a lot of people have mentioned how it makes me look like I have a glow and tan. I apply it to the apples of my cheeks with the 167SE brush that came out with the collection. They go great together!

Bronzers are elusive. They generally all look beautiful in the case. They can even look good on skin. They make us want to buy them. But rarely if ever do they impart the sunny glow that all of the manufacturers say they do. MAC has in my opinion had a LOT of misses, lately. In fact I had all but turned my back on the brand, except for some old favorites. Tried the Sun Dipped Bronzer from the latest collection (forgive me, there are so many I can never remember the collection names, and why should I, anyway). It is really really beautiful. Blends well, not powdery, lasts for hours (as it should when called Pro-Longwear). Color is exactly right....no orange, just a browny bronze red...but not too dark. I have medium to light olive skin, and currently own Bobbi Brown, Nars Laguna, Cargo, Chanel and a few others. This one, in my opinion is the best I've tried. I really love the fact that it isn't completely matte, yet there is no noticeable shimmer. Hope they make it permanent.
