Here are both bronzers in their faux-glowing glory! Keep in mind that both of these shades are permanent and available all year ’round–just in typical black packaging.
From MAC To the Beach, we find two cream bronzers, a first from the company to my recollection. They’re creamy, but they’re very thin and lightweight. They blend out quite a bit, and in the process, sheer out as well. The products themselves seem pretty large, given that they’re the size of MAC’s bronzing powders–bigger than a blush.
To the Beach includes two shades of limited edition nail lacquer ($12 a pop). The one not yet included in this review is Scorcher (creamy bright coral-red), which I will be sure to include as soon as I can.
The application was fine for me, but I generally don’t have issues with MAC lacquers. It has a cream finish, so no shimmer, and two coats is enough to get pretty opaque, but I did three because I messed up on one finger for the second coat.
