Totally Taupeless

MAC Totally Taupeless Radiant Matte Bronzing Face Powder ($32.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. As the powder was buffed and blended onto my skin, the satin finish became more prominent.

It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage, though it was marketed as being “sheer-to-medium buildable coverage.” The texture was silky and finely-milled without being powdery, but it wasn’t too firmly pressed into the pan either, so I felt it was easy to pick up product with a variety of brushes. The powder blended out nicely on my skin and wore well for nine hours before fading visibly with a decent amount of color still visible after 12 hours (as the brand claimed 12-hour wear!).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

Looks lovely. I am in the market for a new high end powder bronzer. There are so many nice ones to choose from these days that I’m overwhelmed by the choices. I’m debating between this, Tom Ford, and Charlotte Tillbury. I have light medium warm skin (Lancome 270 and PML LM10).

This has an absolutely lovely finish on it! However, I’m still going more in the direction of buying Kosas Medium Bronzer, I think so, anyway.
