This MAC highlighter comes in 5 shades and falls under the Mineralize Skinfinish name. They also have 15 shades of Skinfinish Natural powders** of which 12 are all over face powders and 1 is a bronzer. The two are often mixed up, so I just wanted to point out that I’m featuring the highlighter formula rather than the face powders. If looking for Skinfinish natural powders, I have a post featuring medium deep and dark that you can check that out by clicking here.
MAC describes Cheeky bronze** as a soft coral with a golden shimmer.
It is hard to see the golden shimmer in the picture but it is definitely noticeable if you look at yourself closely in the mirror. I do like the quality of this formula and I think it sits nicely on my skin despite my dryness and texture.
As with most makeup items, from a comfortable distance, it looks much like other highlighters. On me, this shade is very similar to the Patrick Starrr Holiday 2018 highlighter (Baby It’s Gold Outside). Cheeky bronze has more color to it and you can see how coral it is in a comparison swatch, but that goes away once blended out on the face. At least on my Estee Lauder 4W4/MAC C8 skin tone, when I wore one on each side of my face, I could barely tell the difference.
You can purchase this shade and the other 4 permanent shades of this formula from the MAC Cosmetics website for $38.00**.
