Review & Swatches: MAC Surf Baby Bronzing Powders

The formulation for MAC’s bronzers is high–the powders apply evenly and aren’t too powdery. The pigment is balanced enough that you can use them for both contouring and overall bronzing (though the gold shimmers in Refined Golden would make it inappropriate to contour with).

Review & Swatches: MAC Surf Baby Nail Polishes

Although these polishes are good, they’re not impressive. Hangin Loose is a simple nude color with tiny silver shimmers. Ocean Dip is an easily dupe-able creamy aqua color.
