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

Review for: REFINED GOLDEN more...
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!

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

I’m a little annoyed with MAC at the moment. This bronzer worked well, but it is a little orangey. It’s probably better for someone with deeper skin tones. It’s a great price point. But it is not cruelty free, which is a little frustrating. MAC does so much great stuff, please change your animal testing policy, guys!

I purchased the summer collection from Patrick Starr’s collaboration with Mac. I received the bronzer in “Give Me Life”. I have medium skin and that bronzer is the best. It adds a warmth to my face that I haven’t found with any other bronzer. I’m hoping that they keep this product permanently.

This is the first bronzer I’ve ever purchased, and I’m happy to say that’d I’d gladly purchase again! If you’re going for a dramatic contour, you still would want to have color under the bronzer, as the pigment alone doesn’t contour great, but using it as an extra pop is the way to go!
