MAC Sun Rush Lustre Drops ($21)

Why wait for summer to wear MAC’s $21 Sun Rush Lustre Drops? The petite 0.60-ounce bottle, which fits in the palm of my hand and snugly into my teeniest makeup bag, is ready to go places NOW (spring break girls’ trip, anyone?).

And with the sun beaming down on the Bay Area today on this, the first official day of spring (See ya, winter! It’s been real!), I was in the mood for warm-weather makeup — tinted moisturizer, lots o’ lashes, lip gloss and Sun Rush’s peachy golden bronze shimmer.

Sometimes referred to as a water-based liquid bronzer, other times as a pearly highlighter, I call Sun Rush a reason to fall to my knees and humbly pay tribute to the Makeup Goddess of Faux Tans…whom you may refer to in whispers as Bronzeta.

Liquid gold, yo! Err…more like a peachy bronzed gold, yo!

Whenever I dot a couple drops of Sun Rush on my upper cheekbones and swirl them in with a MAC 224 or 217 brush, usually on top of whatever tinted moisturizer or light foundation I may be wearing (and possibly blush tint if I’m feeling extra ambitious), I’m transformed into one of those impossibly chic beach gals who wears Pucci print caftans, calls strangers dahhling and resort hops between the poshest places in the South of France.


I guess what I’m trying to say is, Duuuuude, I look relaxed.

I’m a golden girl when I wear MAC Sun Rush Lustre Drops blended on the tops of my cheekbones

And that’s because I am. Sun Rush is just so easygoing. It barely demands any of my time, yet the payoff? Radiant, sun-kissed skin without the harmful solar rays.

Now that’s golden. 🙂

    I totally need this in my life. I need another bronzer like a I need a hole in my head, but this is gorgeous!! And hey, I don’t own a liquid one, so it’s justified, right?

    Ohh, I think I need that, I am on a bronzer kick lately. I know there are new lustre drops coming out with the soon to be released Baking Beauty collection.

  4. Sonya says:

    That looks great on you! Unfortunately it’s probably a bit too golden for my pale skin, but I love the concept!

    It is very pretty and something I would love to have, but I don’t think I could justify the price tag.

  6. Jennifer says:

    I love the way it looks on you but how about lighter skin tones?

  7. D says:

    Hey! That looks amazing! I was wondering, how does it compare to Benefit Sunbeam? I absolutely love Sunbeam as a highlighter/bronzer but this is a wee bit cheaper and you get more product! Would you say they’re similar enough to sub one in for the other?

    Love highlighters–this one looks so beachy! I like the pink one exactly like this that MAC makes, forget what its called!

    Is this product similar to the strobe cream in golden elixir?
