The MAC Refined Golden Bronzing Powder Wash and Dry Collection is definitely not a limited edition item. It is part of MAC Cosmetics permanent line and I already have it in another limited edition container, the one from the last year’s Alluring Aquatic Collection. However, this bronzer is so beautiful on its own, without limited edition packaging, that restocking on it was simply a must for me this year. I love the warm terracotta color with its fine gold shimmer that looks so festive and almost three-dimensional. Once you apply it on, the shimmer does not look sparkly, but resembles a healthy glow, which is very flattering to any complexion.
As for the formula, it is velvety powder to touch and is very pigmented. The bronzing powder is easy to apply and is very buildable. It can also be used for contouring if needed. However, because of the shimmer particles in it, I limit its use only as a bronzer. If you really need to use bronzer for contouring, I would suggest a matte one. The bronzing powder comes in a signature MAC packaging that is decorated with vibrant rainbow pattern, similar to other items from the Limited Edition Summer 2015 Wash & Dry Collection. I think, the collection looks very summery, cheerful and unique. And if you do not own the MAC Bronzing Powder in Refined Golden, or if you want to restock on it, now is the best time, because I suspect, that this collection will not last for a long time.
