Solar Riche (mid-tone deep orange brown) comes across rather dark inside the compact, but applies to the face rather lightly. You don't need a strong hand, but you don't need to use a very light hand either. This is a really great product if you're new to bronzers AND if you LOVE bronzers... of which I am both ;) I had to swatch several times to do the left side heavy swatch.
MAC Solar Riche Bronzing Powder retails for $23.00 and is released with the MAC Fall Colour Collection. It is currently still available on MACCosmetics.com, you can also call your local MAC store or counter to check on availability. This item is Limited Edition.
