Kissed by the Sun

Since spring is here and soon will be summer. So it's times to bust out that bronzer ladies! Actually, mines is always out...what can I say? I do live in Hawaii. So I've been using Mac Refined Golden but that was too light for me so I bought Mac Refined Deeper Bronze. I still like it but I want something better. So I've heard of people using MSF powder foundation to contour so here's the comparisons.

- They're pretty similar in color but the color payoff is way better in the MSF than the Refined Deeper Bronze. It might be because of the there's some chunky glitter/shimmer in the Refined Refined Deeper Bronze which decreases the color payoff. While the MSF has some sheen but more so of a matte texture. So when using the MSF little product will be used to contour.

Price: $25.00
Size: 0.35oz.

I have yet to actually wear the MSF on my face because I want to waste my Deeper Refined Golden first (almost there!).
