MAC Scone Bronzing Powder
MAC Scone Bronzing Powder

MAC Scone Bronzing Powder ($27.50 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “neutral tan.” It’s a medium, subtly warm-toned brown with a hint of sheen–it’s almost matte. Tarte Park Ave. Princess #2 (LE) is lighter, yellower. MAC Sculpt (P, $16.50) is darker, grayer. NARS Paloma Contour (P) is slightly grayer. Urban Decay Bronzer (P) is warmer, lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC describes it as a “lightly frosted, tinted powder that gives skin sheer, natural colour effects and highlights.” Initially, it had a stiffer, harder surface, but after a couple of swatches, the powder seemed to give and became softer and easier to use. It had semi-sheer color payoff that was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage, if desired. It had a lightweight feel, didn’t look powdery on, and blended easily on the skin. The bronzer wore well for eight hours before fading on me. I was disappointed that the compact only contained 0.17 oz., whereas a full-sized Bronzing Powder (from the permanent range) contains 0.35 oz. If you prefer your compacts with mirrors, note that this one doesn’t have one.

Temptalia Asks You


What products have have helped your skin the most? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerPrescriptions for Differin and a topical antibiotic (clindamycin) completely changed the health of my skin for the better. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion (and other anti-acne products) are great for spot treatments. Sunscreen in general!
