MAC Surf Baby: Studio Careblend Pressed Powder

MAC Studio Careblend Pressed Powders ($28.00 for 0.33 oz.) see a limited release of two bronzy shades: Gold-Go-Lightly (mid-tone golden tan brown) and Lush-Light Bronze (mid-tone rosy pink brown) in May’s Surf Baby collection.

  • Gold-Go-Lightly is a warm, golden tan with a near matte finish–it has this very faint satin-like sheen but it’s so subtle. It is warmer and more orange than Golden bronzing powder and Give Me Sun! MSFN.
  • Lush-Light Bronze is a medium-dark rosy tan with the same near matte finish of Gold-Go-Lightly. There are definite red undertones in this shade, and it is noticeably darker than Gold-Go-Lightly. It’s really similar to Sun Power MSFN.

These applied so beautifully–they sit really well on skin. Not powdery but very soft, smooth, and natural. The one word going through my head when I applied these to cheeks (and I used the 116) was how natural the color looked and felt. I think the texture is what separates these from other bronzers; it just sets and looks so natural on the skin. The wear time is excellent, too–still there after eight hours.

I would like to know why these are listed (in the press release) at $28, when normal Studio Careblend Pressed Powder is $23.00–these are also slightly lighter at 0.33 oz. compared to 0.35 oz. for the flesh-colored variations (that are permanent).
