It seems like a long time ago now, but a couple of weeks ago, I paid a visit to the MAC counter. I’d actually gone to have a bit of play with the Style Black collection, but they didn’t have much of it in stock and the store was absolutely slammed, so I somehow ended up walking away with this instead.
It’s MAC’s Iridescent Loose Powder, and it’s not a new product, but I love it, and have already had lots of use out of it. It comes in two different colours – I got the ‘Silver Dusk’ (as you can see above, it’s actually a pale beige colour, with silver particles in it) but I think the Golden Bronze version could be a good buy for summer, or if you have darker skin.
This is such a multi-purpose product: you can use it on its own, as a highlighter, or you can mix it with your foundation, eye-shadow etc, to give it a bit of shimmer. And, of course, you can use it anywhere you like, be it on your face, decolletage, arms, etc. I mostly use it on its own, either as an eyeshadow (no colour, but lots of shimmer!) or as a highlighter on my cheek and brow bones. The colour is fairly subtle when you first brush it on, but you can layer it up as much as you like. Because it IS so subtle, it was difficult to get a decent photo of it especially given that natural daylight is now more or less a thing of the past), but I gave it my best shot:
It’s £16.50, but apparently lasts for years. Get it at MAC.
