To many of you, this product may not be new to you and may even be something you consider a staple or a holy grail product. After hearing about this bronzer time and time again from Ms. Jaclyn Hill – I just had to bite the bullet and go buy it! I will admit, I don’t buy much MAC makeup. Nothing against MAC at all, I just never went out of my way to purchase their products. Here and there, I would buy MAC products out of the blue – but I always switch up my makeup because I get bored and am always on the hunt for the latest and greatest!
Today, I am here to share with you my first impressions of MAC’s Give Me Sun! Bronzer and what I think of it after my initial use!
MAC Give Me Sun! Bronzer
This bronzer is labeled as a light summer peach tan and one of the 18 shades of MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish. It is described as follows:
“A luxurious, slow-baked domed face powder with low-level pearlized pigments that provide a dimensional yet natural-satin finish. Can be used to set foundation and to touch up makeup throughout the day. Features our 77-Mineral Complex and vitamin E.”
I immediately found when testing out this bronzer in the MAC store that although it is a powder it was sooo incredibly smooth, almost like butter! The colour looks a bit orange-y in the pan which had me skeptical but since I kept hearing rave reviews (and I trust anything that comes out of Jaclyn Hill’s mouth), I figured it just had to be good. Plus, as we are in the middle of January now, I feel like this product is screaming out EXACTLY what everyone is thinking in these cold months = GIVE ME SUN!
As soon as I did my makeup in the morning, I was instantly hooked! (Mind you, I first had a bit of a heavy hand when I tapped my brush on the dome of the bronzer and it looked like WAY too much and too orange-y on my face – take my advice and go lightly!) Despite having put too much on, the bronzer blended seamlessly and became a perfect shade to give that sun-kissed glow! There is no sheen in this product so the colour looks natural and the finish of this product is very smooth. I even used a little bit of it on my eyelids!
While using this product, I instantly realized that it would be perfect for blending out my contouring! The texture and finish of the bronzer would be ideal for ensuring that my contour has no harsh lines and looks natural. It is the perfect shade to balance out the darker contour shades.
The one downside is the price of this baby – $38. However, a little bit of this product goes a long way and I can tell that this will last me a long time. I believe this bronzer would suit fair to medium skin-tones best.
Would I buy this product again? Absolutely! It is incredibly exciting when you find a product like MAC’s Give Me Sun! that just works effortlessly!
