MAC Beauty Powders Take 2
Thanks for being so patient with me while I wandered around in a daze this week ;)
And for your patience, as promised, I reward you with the MAC Beauty Powders Review and Pictures!
MAC Beauty Powders in Micro Pink and Natural Flare
I ended up purchasing two of the eights colors and I know at least four more of the colors that are on my wish list!
Ok these confuse me slightly as I thought MAC had previously released a similar product. The other reason I am puzzling would be I am unsure if these are being released via MAC anytime soon or if these are a MAC Pro exclusive. I thought I had seen something about the release being with the Holiday goodies but I am too lazy to go looking at the moment :) So don't quote me on that!
I ended up with Micro Pink and Natural Flare both of which I am very happy with! Micro Pink should probably be kept with the fair skin group because it may appear slightly chalky on a deeper skin type and Natural Flare is good for all skin types in my opinion.
I guess if you took a Mineralized Skinfinish and you cracked it up into finely milled powder and added a little sparkle you'd have a MAC Beauty Powder. Maybe it's me but that is what I am getting in terms of finish and texture on my face! Which is great because who doesn't want a loose powder format of Mineralized Skinfinish right? Plus sparkle? I'm all over that!
For those of you yelling boo at the sparkle have no fear it's a very natural finish and you're not going to look like you're ready for a night in a club or anything remotely glittery and loud. It applies with a nice, even finish and the sparkle is there but barely noticeable. These remind me of Bare Escentuals Rose Gossamer Powder for some reason!
MAC Micro Pink Beauty Powder and Bare Escentuals Rose Gossamer
I used Natural Flare this morning with a peach blush and it really made my blush pop up a little. It also made my blush a bit more subdued and natural looking!
Excuse the crummy eye make-up! Last few days I feel like I'm rushed in everything I do ;) So disregard the mucked up eyeshadow and concentrate on the gorgeous look Natural Flare gave my cheeks!
I normally reserve my 187 for applying Mineralized Skinfinish but it dipped happily into my pot of Natural Flare this morning and worked wonderfully to apply the powder! I think the 187, 188, or a small kabuki would be great for application! If you want more of a loose effect I'd try applying with a puffier brush such as the 129.
Overall, I'd say nab a few of these to add to your collection because they are quite good! I'm loving the two I got and hopefully will get the others that I'm currently wanting!
These are available via Phone from MAC Pro or if you happen to live near a MAC Pro store you can hop right in and purchase them for $21 USD.
My camera doesn't pick up swatches well and Micro Pink looked like I had nothing on however it did ok with Natural Flare.
