MAC Light Sunshine Beauty Powder Swatches, Photos, Review

MAC Light Sunshine Beauty Powder ($25.00 for 0.35 oz.) is described as a “pastel neutral pink with soft gold and pink sparkles.” This shade has a lot more of a sheen in its finish compared to Alpha Girl, which looks nearly matte on skin. The color is a very pale, light pink. It’s more like a white-washed pink, because it is quite light. It is, however, rather pigmented, but also noticeably powdery because of the paleness of the base color.
It doesn’t work well on my medium skin tone, because it lightens my cheeks instead of brightening them. I think those with light and pale skin tones would like it as a subtle highlighter or finishing powder (if used with a light hand), but it may be ashy on deeper skin tones.

MAC Alpha Girl Beauty Powder Swatches, Photos, Review

MAC Alpha Girl Beauty Powder ($25.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a pale pinky coral with a very subtle satin sheen. I found it was more pigmented when I applied it to cheeks (I used MAC’s 116 brush) than when I attempted to swatch it on my arm. My “heavy” swatch was rather dismal, but it was better on cheeks. Alpha Girl was a touch powdery, and I felt that it made my cheeks look a little dry.

Chanel Gardenia Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Gardenia Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark rose pink with subtle golden micro-shimmer and shine. The color applies semi-opaque–almost covering my lip freckle but not entirely–and deposits color evenly. Like many other Rouge Cocos, the finish is shimmery and borders on frosty.

Chanel Bronze Rose Soleil Tan de Chanel

Chanel Bronze Rose Soleil Tan de Chanel ($50.00 for 0.49 oz.) is the cool-toned companion to Bronze Corail in Chanel’s summer collection. Both variations are limited edition, and the biggest difference is in the last color: coral versus rose. After swatching and wearing the two, though, I noticed very little difference when actually worn!

Milani Pink Twice Baked Eyeshadow

Milani Pink Twice Baked Metallic Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is medium-dark pink with a frost finish. Milani’s Baked Metallic Eyeshadows can be used wet or dry–wet for more intensity, dry for more luminosity (which, given the context, must mean sheerer color).  With Pink Twice, I found it applied about as well regardless of whether it was used wet or dry, but it did bind together a smidgen better wet so it had a smoother feel. I liked how this shade of the baked formula did not have any fall out issues, though, and the pigmentation level was nice–very true-to-pan color.
