I'm not a huge fan of MAC, but I do use this. It's the only MAC product I own. I use this as a bronzer. It's currently my go-to bronzer. Other bronzers tend to be too brown and look too harsh on my fair skin.

Also makes for a very nice eyeshadow.

I have yet to find another bronze color I like more than NARS Laguna. While this is a blush, it looks weird used as a blush on my light skin. I am NW15. It works like a bronzer for me and while it didn't look awful, it just wasn't the right color. I really like the sheertone shimmer blushes from MAC, but this wasn't a hit for me. Plus, I didn't find it lasted as long as my …Read more

I've been looking for god knows how long for the perfect highlighter that would help me achieve the dewey radiant finish I want for my medium dark skin. My sister had purchased it as a blush and wasn't a fan so she passed it on to me. I was at first skeptical to use it as a blush, but after swatching some of the product on my arm, I decided to test it out on the high points of my …Read more

I debated between this blush, Margin, and Warm Soul before purchasing it. I have worn it for several days, and I am now at the point where I accept that it doesn't look good on me. I am so disappointed, but it really doesn't. First, it is much too shimmery. The shimmer (gold) doesn't blend, it just sits on top of my skin. I'm normally not a fan of pink blushes on me, since …Read more

I actually struggle to describe Trace Gold; is it a blush, highlighter or bronzer? To me, it's a combination of all three, and I really enjoy using it. In the pan it looks like a brown with plenty of gold shimmer. Applied on my NC20-25 skintone, it turns into a sheer bronze with the gold shimmer being very evident. However it's not super-shimmery - the gold acts like a glow, catching …Read more

Trace gold is something that i would have probably never given a second look to at the mac store. It looks pretty bland and yellowish brown in the pan. But I saw this being used by someone with a similar skintone as mine, and I was bowled over and immediately brought it!

The color is nothing like what it looks in the pan. It is a beautiful muted gold color that is perfect as a …

Hmm, I'll have to disagree with the majority here-this didn't work for me. I didn't really see how this is suppose to be a blush. It would make a lovely eyeshadow (but I own many similar shades like this for that) or a beautiful highlight on colored women. I personally prefer silver, pearlescent highlights like CC shell/benefit high beam so passed on this use as well. I could …Read more

Another score from MAC! I am pretty much addicted to MAC blushes...prior to trying one, I had never worn blush before. I wouldn't really ever consider wearing Trace Gold alone,just because it is SOO sheer. I wouldn't even use it as a highlighter unless I really packed it on or something. I used this in conjunction with MAC's blush in "Harmony" and it is absolutely one of …Read more

Haha, the 'if you lost or ran out' part of the writing this review makes me laugh as I actually DID lose this...and after only a couple uses. Still hasn't turned up and that's been forever ago, but when I logged on here for the first time in over a year and saw that I hadn't reviewed this product that I bought from even longer before that, I knew I should give it some …Read more

When I first put this blush on my NC30 skin, it was a lovely subtle shimmery bronze glow. However, as the day went on, it started to change into a more reddish and ruddy hue on my cheek. What a shame! Hopefully I can still use this as an eyeshadow, but otherwise this was a waste of money. I keep having bad luck with Mac blushes lately, I think its about time I move on to another brand.EDIT: I …Read more
