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. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

This shade was originally released a few years ago, but it’s back and now part of the permanent set of Mineralize Skinfinishes (it is one of five). The color is just about identical between the one I just purchased and the one I have from years ago, and the texture of the new one is less powdery–still similar in regards to softness and silkiness, but the new one isn’t at all powdery. The shimmer seemed a bit finer, smoother once applied, as it didn’t emphasize pores as much as my older compact did. This particular shade of Mineralize Skinfinish could be used as a highlighter, bronzer, or blush, as it had good color payoff that was buildable to full opacity or easily sheered out for a warm glow. If you want to use it primarily as a highlighter, I recommend a light hand and fan or stippling brush, otherwise you’ll get a fair amount of color. On me, the color lasted for seven and a half hours before starting to get patchy/faded along the apples of the cheeks.

The new packaging is glossy black, but the size is the same as the previous compacts. The bottom of the compact is curved inward, so these will fit more snugly together for better storage. They contain the same amount of product, but MAC increased the price from $30.00 to $32.00.
