I was so excited to get this stunning limited edition piece from MAC .
The MAC Pink Buttercream Pearlmatte Face Powder is something I have tried so hard to get but being a limited edition and very rarely popping up with new collections every now and again it was beginning to become difficult.
Selfridges were selling this but once again it is totally sold out and I can imagine it being sold out for a while once again and it is not hard to see why .
What do MAC say about their product-
Pearlized and satin shades of Face Powder blend effortlessly to achieve an array of looks with a rich texture and velvet finish. Use for highlighting and blush effects. Baking Beauties flower and leaf design are stamped into the powder. Limited edition.
What I have to say about it-
Ok , so we all know that MAC products have the same packaging with the majority of their products , plain, black with the bold white MAC marking , it does not seem that fantastic considering they are one of the beauty industries most loved brand.
The fact that they put little effort into the packaging designs but the very best quality into their products is what I actually like about MAC.
The fact that this face powder has a beautiful floral design within the product itself is lovely.
I have had issues with using similar powders where the print has disappeared or smeared on one or few uses but this (as you can see in the close up picture below) has been used a lot and still holds its elegant design well.
The thing I do love about MAC product packaging is that the case of the face powder contains that fabulous clicking noise when you close the product . Its a great security issue I have with my products knowing they are closed properly and are not going to be damaged or get bacteria inside.
Click, Click, Click,,,,,,,,,,,,
The powder is absolutely stunning with its cupcake pastel shades and is to be used as a complexion enhancer, like a powder, luminizer and blush all in one.
This is very sheer and for me is a beautiful cheekbone enhancer.
The shades that come through when using this is a pinkish pearl shade, not overpowering in pink but with the white tone which is fantastic for highlighting those areas .
This is most definitely a powder for very fair or ivory skin tones .
I absolutely love the pearlescent finish .
It is amazingly smooth to apply and also soft feeling on the skin but I do notice slight emphasize in pores .
This powder leaves a stunning radiance look to my face and will most certainly be making it's way into romantic weekend away in just over a weeks time.
I find I am not needing to cover the brush with heaps of product, instead the smallest amount leaves a more natural glow with better effect, the more you apply, the more it seems to look caked onto the skin which is not a pretty sight .
Being my first MAC face powder it has left me very impressed and I am now looking to growing my collection from MAC lipsticks to their powders like these too now .
The quality is amazing and I can tell this is most definitely worth the money as it is going to last a very long time . I do think this should be brought out as a FOREVER MAC product and hope it is seen on the shelves again soon as I will be very tempted to grab more incase it is quickly removed from sale again.
Have you tried this, what do you think?
