MAC Yellow Topaz CCB & Firebrush Bronzer

MAC Yellow Topaz Cream Colour Base ($23.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, yellow gold with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had sheer color payoff that was somewhat buildable to semi-sheer coverage. The texture of this shade was less emollient than other Cream Colour Bases, so it had less shine and a subtle shimmered effect on the skin. I think the finish is more apparent in person than in photos, but it is a subtler effect. It lasted for seven hours on me (of the eight hours it is marketed as having). Laura Mercier Addiction (P, $44.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Whisper of Gilt (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter (90% similar). Estee Lauder Blonde Cumin (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Anastasia So Hollywood (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Dior Glowing Nude (002) (LE, $58.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
