Review for: MATTE BRONZE more...
Before I knew anything about makeup, I would visit the MAC makeup counter at my local mall and ask the MUAs questions about different products. They used to have a deal where if you spent over $50 they would give you a free makeover, so I would take advantage of that opportunity and have the MUA teach me how to apply makeup on myself and match colors and products for me. Although MAC no longer offers this deal, MAC counters in department stores such as Nordstrom still offer free makeover services & are a huge help! My MUA recommended this one to me, the only reason I gave it 3 stars was that without finishing spray, the powder rubbed off too quickly. Instead of this powder I now use Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer

This product is definately a winner. It presents in a beautiful little flip pallete, and is so easy to use!! It is a really pigmented color, so you can start of really light and build up with just one small swipe of the brush. There are a few different color shades to choose from, from matte to a shimmer, meaning you can choose one just right for your skin tone. I vary between them, depending on day and occasion. They wear well on my pale skin, and dont look muddy at all. Very fair on price, not overly expensive but lasts a long time. Doesnt irritate my skin or cause breakouts either!

Love love love!!! I’ve been using this bronzer for years now and I wouldn’t trade it for another one! For some reason I’ve tried many bronzers and I always keep coming back to this one. I love how it gives my olive skin tone a nice bronze look. It is not orange at all nor dirty brown. I feel it makes me look like I naturally tanned outdoors. I always get compliments on this color. It last me a good 7 months while using on a daily basis. I like to contour my face or just bronze my face a little. It’s a must have in your kit!

This is my go to bronzer. I bought this one because I was using just the KatVonD contour palette so I thought it was too brown for my skin tone. I went to MAC and they gave me this one and I fell in love with it because it gives me the perfect bronze all over without it looking too ashy. This product lasts so long. I’ve had it for so long that I still haven’t hit pan. It will last you a really long time.

This is one of my OG bronzers. It works well. It is not my favorite brand because I prefer brands that don’t test on animals, but I bought this bronzer before I knew they did test on animals.

Anyway, the formula is creamy. There’s not too much kickback in the pan after you dip your brush in which is always a plus. It goes on smooth without being patchy and it blends like a dream

I used to LIVE for this bronzer. There is a lot of color payoff, it’s not muddy, and always made me looked sunkissed. I haven’t used it in a while because I’m attempting to finish my other bronzers before I repurchase, but this bronzer is definitely worth it! I find it more appealing than the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer! It’s a bit pricey but worth the $$$

If you're looking for a good matte bronzer I would recommend this. It's a very pretty shade to warm up the face with. It is slightly too warm toned for me to use to actual contour but I enjoy the sun kissed look it provides. It applied slightly patchy which is why I gave it a 3 but overall it's a decent bronzer M.A.C Cosmetics Bronzing Powder

My first M.A.C Cosmetics Bronzing Powder is the Aaliyah bronzing powder in Baby Girl. It is absolutely stunning!! Applied beautifully and lasts my entire work day. In my opinion it gives me the perfect summer glow. Only regret I have is not buying a backup one.

this is an okay bronzer. to be honest the formula is not as smooth as i would like. it also leans pretty orange on me. it has a matte finish which is why i originally bought it, but it does not look airbrushed on the skin. i expected more from mac. i love the give me sun bronzer and definitely recommend that over this.
