MAC Alluring Aquatics Collection, Golden Bronzing Powder

Unlike many beauty addicts that I know I’m not really one to have a large collection of bronzers, I pretty much always stick with one product that works and use it until it’s gone (can’t say the same about lip products) I have gone from using my Urban Decay Baked Bronzer to my beloved Laguna Bronzer from Nars. I’ve had my ‘Old Faithful’ Nars Laguna bronzer since my 21st birthday which was back in March and I haven’t even nearly hit pan yet.

When I decided I was in the market for a new bronzer I decided to go a shade lighter  because I felt like ‘Laguna’ was a perfect contouring product,  but I really wanted a bronzer to use all over the face for a gorgeous Summer glow, especially in the warmer months. Please welcome ‘Golden’ from the MAC Alluring Aquatics collection, this bronzer is actually a part of the permanent collection but I had to pick it up as part of the Alluring Aquatics collection because the packaging is so damn gorgeous. I picked up one of the lipsticks from this range to because I really just couldn’t resist I picked up the shade ‘Pet Me, Please’ but it will be a part of my updated MAC lipstick collection post.

A lightly frosted tinted powder that gives skin sheer, natural colour effects and highlights. Ideal for enhancing a skin tone or to accent or strengthen a tan. Skin – conditioning and formulated to provide a smooth, even application on all skin types.

The texture is very fine, soft and smooth. It is very easy to apply and blend, you can build it up as you like for contouring purposes or use it all over the face as I have been doing, it doesn’t come up easily on my brush in 1 swipe I have to repeat the process at least 3-4 times to do any proper contouring which I’m really not used to because ‘Laguna’ is perfect in just one swipe.

(Apologies for the quality of this picture, you wouldn't believe how insanely hard it is to get a good swatch photo of a bronzer)

Again as all MAC products, staying power is quite good. In fact, it doesn’t budge anywhere for at least 4-5 hours.

I am in love with this as I knew I would be. I had tried it a few times in the store before deciding to pick it up in the airport on the way home, its staying power, colour, coverage, packaging, everything, what can I say MAC really can’t do anything wrong in my eyes.

I dread the day that I find a MAC product that I don’t love.

I love it and thoroughly recommend it to everyone; obviously you’re unable to pick it up now from the alluring aquatics range but I’m almost positive that it’s part of the permanent range of products so check it out for yourself.

Did you pick anything up from the Alluring Aquatics range?
