MAC Golden is a moderately warm-toned, medium brown with a satin finish. It is a limited edition bronzer that retails for $28.00 and contains 0.35 oz.
Golden is described as a "muted golden tan-beige with shimmer." It's a softened, medium orange-brown with golden shimmer. The texture of this was strangely dry and almost crumbly/chunky. It flaked away and didn't bind together well. The color payoff was so-so but it tended to sheer out/blend away as the product didn't stick to the skin well. What did apply lasted six and a half hours. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (P) is browner. Wet 'n' Wild Bikini Contest (P, $3.99) is similar. NARS Laguna (P, $36.00) is more golden.MAC Soft Sand (LE, $25.00) is darker, browner. See comparison swatches.
