It has occurred to me that I have never posted about this MAC powder, even though I’ve hit pan on it quite a while ago and am indeed very close to using it up completely.
I swear one of these days I will have consistent product photography. These photos were taken at least a year ago, before first use.
I have to show you the back too, because obviously no one’s ever seen a MAC powder before.
What I loved about it:
Coverage. Coverage is amazing. When applied with a sponge it’s total full coverage, and honestly, at times I would skip the concealer, and it would do the job. Recently I started applying it with a brush, and the coverage is still good, though not as intense as when applied with a sponge.
Longevity. I’d need to touch up my make-up in the T-zone in two-four hours, depending on how my skin’d be doing on that particular day, but cheeks, jaw line, and most of forehead would stay covered for 6-8 hours.
Scent. Rather, lack of it.
Also, as the date of these photos suggests, I started using this powder back in April ’13. It’s now March ’14, and though I’ve hit pan, there’s still quite a lot of product left, so it’s lasted me a while. I use it almost exclusively these days. Have to mention, though, that I don’t wear make-up every day (because I don’t leave the house every day), so I figure if you are a normal person with regular commitments and employment, then this will last you 6-7 months.
What was so-so:
Used without a primer or a good buffing technique, this thing accentuates pores remarkably.
Not so much a product itself as the shade selection – I’ve come to realise that I’m not an NC, but NW.
I have this odd feeling that it might be… Not breaking me out exactly, but not doing many favours to my skin either.
Would I repurchase? A hypothetical yes. MAC is not available in these dreary lands.
(This product was a very welcome gift from my cousin. MAC is not aware of my existence. This is not a sponsored post.)
