MAC Cheeky Bronze Mineralize Skinfinish

MAC Cheeky Bronze Mineralize Skinfinish ($32.00 for 0.35 oz.) is described as a “soft coral with golden shimmer.” It’s a slightly muted, medium coppery orange with gold shimmer. At best, it looks slightly reddish-tinged (“coral”) in the pan, but it seems far more copper than coral. MAC Seduced at Sea (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, redder. NARS Na Pali Coast (P, $39.00) is a cream product, stronger red tones. MAC Pleasure Model (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker. NARS Luster (P, $29.00) is more golden.
