MAC Nude on Board Pro Longwear Bronzing Powder
MAC Nude on Board Pro Longwear Bronzing Powder ($30.00 for 0.42 oz.) is described as a “bronzy yellow tone.” It’s a warm-toned, medium tan brown with a subtle golden shimmer-sheen. Dior Coral Glow Bronzer is more orange, brighter. Illamasqua Disobey is similar, slightly browner, and totally matte. Burberry Summer Glow is warmer, browner. MAC Give Me Sun is not quite as warm-toned.
I LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. the Pro Longwear Bronzing Powders, and I’m so happy to see their return this year. The first thing you’ll notice is how utterly silky-smooth the texture is. It’s buttery, creamy, lightweight, and extremely finely-milled. It’s so soft, but it’s not powdery. Nude on Board blends out effortlessly, and it sits well on the skin without emphasizing pores. It’s supposed to give “sheer-low transparent coverage,” plus long-wear and with a natural finish.
Just to double-check the awesomeness that is the Pro Longwear Bronzing Powder formula, I re-tested wear, and I didn’t have any noticeable fading until the tenth hour. The color payoff is buildable, and it’s a subtle bronzer but it can be layered to more intense payoff, if desired.
