MATTE BRONZER
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true, Bold Color
The matte bronzer is my absolute favorite. It works well on my olive complexion. I can add very little to bronze my face or build it up for a more precise contour. Holy grail product!

Holly Grail
Tags +Long wearing, Natural looking
As many bronzes that I've tried, I always go back to this one. It's amazing! Natural looking, and not dirty looking, not too sparkly and make your face look like a sparkle bomb.i use it on both light makeup days to give me a glow, and contouring. It's so easy to blend out. Such a nice beautiful colour on the skin. Definitely one of my holly grail makeup products.

Very natural
Tags +Natural looking
I have been wearing Golden for ten years. I'm fair skinned (NW25) and prefer a light, quick, natural look. Once I have my foundation on, I'm kind of colorless, and a bit of Golden gives me a natural-looking glow.

A MUST HAVE!
Tags +Non-Drying, Natural looking, Contouring, shaping
I have the Matte Bronze and it is absolutely AMAZING. This bronzer changes the shape of my whole face and all in such a subtle yet defined way its one of the best bronzes i've ever used. And it stays put. Apply it once in the morning and it doesn't budge for a good 8 hours or more :) and photographs beautifully like the contours are all natural :) :) This matte bronzer doesn't contain shimmer so matched with beautifully with a highlighter with shimmer you can define your face so well!! :D

This is an amazing bronzer for contouring! It doesn't show up orange and lasts all day without reapplying. Highly recommend!

Best bronzer!
Love this bronzer. I've been using it for years! I get the matte bronze which is their darkest shade. I like it because you can build how much color you want so essentially it's many shades!

Other bronzers look unnatural. This one is perfect
Tags +adding color to pale skin
I am fair skinned and bronzers are often so dark that they look ridiculous due to the contrast. Golden is perfect for adding color to my complexion using very little.

Great Bronzer!
Tags +Natural looking
I have had a lot of problems using bronzers in the past because they just don't look right in my opinion. A lot of them just stand out on me and don't look natural at all. This bronzer makes it possible for me to wear bronzer! It's great! It looks so natural yet it give a light sparkle which I love about it.

Love
Tags +Non-Drying, Natural looking, Contouring
Love this bronzer. I have it in refined golden. It is the perfect color. It's very build-able and great for contouring. Doesn't make a mess. Doesn't crumble. Doesn't have that weird smell that some bronzers have. A must in my makeup bag.

Didn't show up
This bronzer seems to be too hard to apply. Not meaning difficult, but hard product. I tried multiple times to apply with various brushes and it did not show up on my skin. I am NW20, and often bronzers are too dark or look "dirty". I had to send this one back for the opposite reason. This product and shade was recommended to me by a MAC MUA.

Different experience
Tags +Non-Drying, bronzing
I based my purchase off the reviews and that was the WORST choice. I bought much lighter than I would have originally, if I hadn't have read the reviews considering I'm using this for a contour. The reviews implied the color pigmentation is much darker than it would appear, that is totally false. If anything it's a shade lighter. So in summary; if you want to bronze, buy your ideal shade. If you want to even attempt to contour, buy the darkest shade possible.

Actual Color is darker - Beware!
Tags +cheeks
The Bronzing Powder in "Refined Golden" is a dark cocoa brown, more like the "Bronze" color on the MAC website.

Great Bronzer!
Tags +Non-Drying, Natural looking
I decided to try the MAC Bronzing Powder in Refined Gold and I love it! I was a little worried it would be too dark (I use NC15 foundation) but it added just the right amount of color to liven up my face. It's also definitely not as shimmery as I expected, which is good!

A Yearound Staple - Would Die Without
Tags +Natural looking
I have this bronzer in Bronze and Refined Golden. I'm a NC 30 skintone when I'm not tanned, and NC 35 with a tan. I must say I LOVE Bronze so much more than Refined Golden. Refined golden is really shimmery and slightly more pigmented, so I like it for a sun-kissed glow in the summer when I'm darker. It's a bit too much when I'm not tanned. Bronze is my absolute favorite because I can wear it year round. It makes me feel alive when I'm on the pasty side in the spring/fall/winter and provides a natural brown/bronzed glow without the shimmer. I do sometimes wear it in the summer. Friggin love it, have bought it numerous times, will never stop buying. Highly recommend!
