MAC bronzing powder in Golden and Bronze: swatches and review

MAC bronzing powder in Bronze



Unlike many beauty addicts that I know I’m not really one to have a large collection of bronzers- I pretty much stick with one product that works and use it until it’s gone (can’t say the same about lip products!). I’ve had my ‘Old Faithful’ MAC Bronzer in Golden (pictured on the left) for over 2 years and as you can see I’ve really gotten my money’s worth out of it.

When I decided I was in the market for a new bronzer I decided to go a shade darker because I felt ‘Golden’ was probably a little bit too light for my skin tone when used as a contouring product, especially in the warmer months. Please welcome ‘Bronze’ as the successor to ‘Golden’ 🙂

‘Bronze’ is the perfect contouring colour for my skin tone and is a shade darker than ‘Golden’. It has a matte-satin finish which I find to be perfect for natural looking contouring (my pet peeve is bronzers with shimmer or sparkle). I like to apply it in a C shape from my temple to underneath my cheekbones with a contouring brush.

You can see it in action when I upload my very first makeup tutorial youtube video later on tonight 🙂
