MAC Spring Bling High-LightPowder Review & Swatches

Spring Bling

MAC Spring Bling High-LightPowder($3000 for 0.31 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark, reddish-brown with faint golden pearl. The overspray was strong, however I attempted to get as much off of the powder by taking a big powder brush, swirling and swirling, and after that taking another brush to get the loosened up powder into a garbage can in the past in fact swatching and using. I even took the back of a brush and removed a divot in my pan to see if there truly were great shimmers in it, and I still saw them– extremely discreetly however there.

The powder winds up looking more like a more normal satin-finish bronzer, so it may be an extremely subtle highlighter on medium-tan and much deeper complexion however will include some heat and/or color in addition to a subtle radiance (so a minimum of it remains in “highlighter” area!). It wasn’t a “sheer” layer of color at all; attempt mainly nontransparent and buildable. The sheen it offered was exceptionally subtle, and I believe the natural surface of my skin (typical at the minute) was doing more lifting than the item itself. The texture, however, is the peak of the item: velvety, velvety, and smooth without being grainy– it’s much richer in feel than the majority of MAC’s powder-based items (which tend to be firmer/stiffer, not always in a bad method!). It used well for 8 hours on me prior to fading visibly.

Formula Overview

It’s expected to have a “sheer veil of colour” that “blends effortlessly,” however it is still identified as a “highlighter.” Most, if not at all (depending upon the shade, of the shimmer is an overspray (as is the gradient impact), and this remains in line with this formula– MAC’s “High-Light Powder” has actually usually been over-designed with a more underwhelming item beneath. It’s among the most complicated solutions MAC has in their toolbox, due to the fact that it truly does not jive with the expectations they set with the overspray nor the item’s name. It’s regrettable they didn’t take out their Blush Ombre formula from years past.

It’s simply not what anybody would anticipate with a formula name of “High-Light Powder” nor with how it appears in the pan (upon purchase). Most of the versions I have actually discovered are more blush-like in color with semi-matte to matte surfaces that truly mattify the skin instead of generate any luminosity. The colors have actually varied from pale pink to brown to coral. Even Marine Life was no place near a highlighter, which I remember being among the more desirable MAC items of years passed.
