MAC Spring Bling High-Light Powder ($30.00 for zero.31 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark, reddish-brown with faint golden pearl. The overspray was sturdy, however I attempted to get as a lot off of the powder by taking a big powder brush, swirling and swirling, after which taking one other brush to get the loosened powder right into a trash can earlier than really swatching and making use of. I even took the again of a brush and dug out a divot in my pan to see if there actually had been effective shimmers in it, and I nonetheless noticed them–very subtly however there.
The powder finally ends up trying extra like a extra typical satin-finish bronzer, so it is perhaps a really delicate highlighter on medium-tan and deeper pores and skin tones however will add some heat and/or coloration together with a delicate glow (so a minimum of it’s in “highlighter” territory!). It wasn’t a “sheer” layer of coloration in any respect; attempt largely opaque and buildable. The sheen it gave was extremely delicate, and I believe the pure end of my pores and skin (regular for the time being) was doing extra lifting than the product itself. The texture, although, is the excessive level of the product: velvety, creamy, and easy with out being powdery–it’s a lot richer in really feel than most of MAC’s powder-based merchandise (which are usually firmer/stiffer, not essentially in a nasty method!). It wore nicely for eight hours on me earlier than fading noticeably.

It’s alleged to have a “sheer veil of colour” that “blends effortlessly,” however it’s nonetheless labeled as a “highlighter.” Most, if by no means (relying on the shade, of the shimmer is an overspray (as is the gradient impact), and that is according to this formulation — MAC’s “High-Light Powder” has sometimes been over-designed with a extra underwhelming product beneath. It’s one of the vital complicated formulation MAC has of their arsenal, as a result of it actually does not jive with the expectations they set with the overspray nor the product’s identify. It’s too unhealthy they did not pull out their Blush Ombre formula from years previous.
It’s simply by no means what anybody would anticipate with a formulation identify of “High-Light Powder” nor with the way it seems within the pan (upon buy). Most of the iterations I’ve come throughout are extra blush-like in coloration with semi-matte to matte finishes that actually mattify the pores and skin quite than herald any luminosity. The colours have ranged from pale pink to brown to coral. Even Marine Life was nowhere close to a highlighter, which I recall being one of many extra covetable MAC merchandise of years passed by.
