MAC Golden Bronze Iridescent Powder/Loose Is Back! — and It Wants to Bathe You in Buttery, Lovely, Long-Lasting Sunset Lighting

Golden Bronze doing it’s “thang” on my upper cheekbones, in my inner corners, atop my Cupid’s bow, and down the bridge of my nose

Every MAC artist I’ve ever chatted with about Golden Bronze raves about it and basically showers it with love. (Side note: If you caught the Surface reference, you and I were probably at the same eighth-grade dance.)


Shower me with your looooooooove

MAC Iridescent Powder/Loose in Golden Bronze ($29)

This peachy golden loose highlighting powder briefly peace’d-the-eff out for a while, and I didn’t hear about it or see it around (I gave it the Unsung Heroes treatment in 2012), but it’s back with a new version, and it’s just as epic as before.

Kits everywhere are sighing with relief, I’m sure. 🙂

It’s easy to see why this multipurpose miracle-worker is a staple at photo shoots and on runways. You only need the littlest bit to gleam with a gorgeous glow, and it requires, like…zero skill to blend.

Seriously, if you breathe — if you literally JUST EXIST — you can blend this powder.

Iridescent Powder/Loose in Golden Bronze — otherwise known as “this jar of buttery sunset lighting”

It’s fantastic as a basic powder highlighter, or mixed into a face/body lotion or oil, or even sprinkled into tinted moisturizer, BB or CC cream, or foundation.

Tip: Load up a tapered eye brush like the MAC 224 with it to precisely place Golden Bronze down the bridge of your nose, on your upper cheekbones, in the inner corners, and on your Cupid’s bow.

You may be thinking, “OK, but can’t other loose highlighters do the same thing?”

Naw, babe, they don’t.

The finish on Golden Bronze is more of a pearly, high-fashion sheen than a frost, so instead of looking like you just poured a jar of club shimmer all over your face, you look like you stepped off a runway at NYFW. Wearing it is like being bathed in buttery sunset all day long.

Tip: The first time you open the jar, peel back the sticker cover just enough to only expose a few of the sifter holes. That way, you can easily control how much powder sifts out, and you can also do this by poking a few holes in the sticker with a needle or a safety pin.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ 5 out of 5 hearts.

On a somewhat related note, you can’t see him, but El Hub was in the background doing goofy dance moves the entire time while I took this series of pictures, so I ended up with 24 pics like this…

Then the Coywolf got up in the mix…

Her brows! I’m so jelly…

Birds of a feather, those two!

Dropping her off at school has been getting easier. She’s so happy to be there, and seeing her happy makes me happy. I’m still at that point, though, where I don’t know what to do with myself when I’m home alone. When I get back from dropping her off in the morning, I kinda just sit here in the quiet absolutely dumbfounded for a while.

It’s really, really weird to be home alone again (except for Tabs, of course)…

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
