MAC Bronze Shimmer Lipstick Review & Swatches


MAC Bronze Shimmer Lipstick

I wanted to pick this shade since ages , not for the unusual name or finish but to layer it with different lipsticks and it is so “Punjabi” that I couldn’t resist myself and managed to grab at whooping “1450” INR recently .

Shade – MAC Bronze shimmer is described as Bronze with golden shimmer, true to its description it is warm toned Beautiful Fiery Bronzy golden shade but have little sheerness to it. IF you are thinking to wear this alone then don’t get me wrong “it’s not a wear alone types”, it is best to layer and mix with other shades and you will get endless lip combinations once you get hang of it. I have shown how it looks on my lips as it is but trust me, am going to show you a combination soon.

Texture – It has easy to glide texture, soft and creamy to layer and once it starts to fade it never settle in fine lines. Even if the lipstick is frosty and from frost finish it doesn’t leave my lip dry or the shimmer wears off spreading all over.

Pigmentation – It is nicely pigmented shade and two layers are required to get absolute opaque coverage however it has little sheer base but you get the exact shade what you see in tube.

Staying power – I get 3 plus hrs of wear with this shade, once you have a habit of long staying lipstick 3 hrs looks nothing and that is where I don’t like this.

What I like about MAC Bronze Shimmer Lipstick:

  • I absolutely adore the unique shade.
  • It glides easily on my lips if they are well moisturized.
  • They don’t settle in fine lines.
  • The regular MAC Vanilla scent which is so inviting.
  • It doesn’t dry out my lips once the colour wears off .

What I don’t like about MAC Bronze Shimmer Lipstick:

  • The frosty look may not look appealing on dry and flaky lips.
  • I can’t stop myself to add “PRICE” as a con.
  • The staying power is not exceptional but it is due to finish.

Ratings – 4/5

Recommendations: The colour is very unique and if you like to play with lipsticks and are creative then please give this a shot and am sure you will be happy to use this.
