Considering Brooke always looks like she has that sunny glow on her face it seems like a bronzer powder makes for a perfect fit for this collection.
Take a peek!
As you can see the MAC Brooke Shields Bronzer compact is really understated and uneventful. This is a taupe colored compact featuring the MAC emblem and Brooke’s autograph across the front. It has no mirror inside (totally shocked me) and feels very light and dare I say cheap? Sorry MAC, sorry Brooke. Brooke Shields is a pretty legendary actress, I did expect a little more with the packaging…nothing too blingy mind you or dramatic but nothing as simple and less than elegant as this either!
I personally prefer my bronzers with a hint of shimmer but unfortunately MAC Scone Bronzing Powder has none. This is your typical tan bronzer shade with a matte finish and a slightly drier texture that has a stiff surface but gives away to a softer powder underneath. It proves difficult to swatch as you really have to crack away at the “outer shell” to reach the more silky powder under it. It blends poorly and dry on my skin and looked very light on the initial application. The best method to get it to work is to use a body bronzer brush or a larger powder brush and proceed to swipe that brush back and fourth across the top layer. Do this several times so you can remove the stiffer upper layer. Once you reach the silky powder underneath you’ll find it applies to skin a bit better and doesn’t look as dry. Of course, personally, I think you shouldn’t have to do this to begin with!

MAC Brooke Shields Bronzer Swatches (Scone)
It’s a nice shade for contouring and to add a sunny glow to cheeks and face but the formula just wasn’t cutting it for me nor was the packaging anything special!
As a fan of Brooke Shields you can count me disappointed.
Anyone grab it?
It’s available now at MAC counters or online at shop.nordstrom.com.
