SkinSheen Bronzer Stick Packaging

This review covers MAC’s 3 Surf, Baby! Skinsheen Bronzer Sticks.

  • Gilty Bronze: coppery bronze with gold shimmer (limited edition)
  • Billionaire Bronze: finely spun golden with soft pearl finish (limited edition)
  • Tan-Tint: soft suntan bronze

Please see this post for full photos of these powders.

Packaging: 9/10

Skinsheen Bronzer Sticks, as the name suggests, come in stick form. You twist the packaging to reveal more product as you use it up.

Quality: 9/10

Gilty Bronze is a metallic, coppery bronze color. Billionaire Bronze and Tan-Tint are both matte colors. Billionaire Bronze is a darker brown color while Tan-Tint is a lighter, neutral tan color.

These are, essentially, cream bronzers that come in stick form. The formula is soft and creamy. These colors are also extremely pigmented, so you have to apply the product lightly.

You can use this product both for contouring and over the cheeks. Because of the form of the product and intense pigmentation, it would be difficult to use for overall color.

Ease of Use: 8/10

You should apply these with either your fingers or a brush. The product is so intensely pigmented that it’s actually difficult to use a light enough hand and not over-do it.

Price: 8/10

These contain 14 g and cost $29.50 each. These would otherwise cost $28.50 and, despite containing a large amount of product, paying almost $30.00 for a bronzer that’s difficult to use is asking customers to pay more than I think this product is worth.

    Ick…good to know! I kinda like the 2nd look you did with Tan-Tint though! I’m starting to think that you are so pretty, you just make everything look good!

    I was never a fan of cream bronzers–maybe I have not found the right one for me. But you look beautiful wearing these! Gilty Bronze appears the best.
