Beauty Powders “can be applied as a highlight, soft blush, or overall finish,” according to MAC. The texture of the powder feels smooth to the touch, and it’s not rock solid, but it is more firmly pressed in the pan than the last few Beauty Powders, which gave it a slightly chalky, drier consistency that just didn’t sit or blend out as nicely on the skin. The lighter shade made it more forgiving overall, and the light sheen saves it from looking powdery on the skin. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to medium), which is in line with how the product is marketed, and it did have a slight brightening/warming effect on my skin (I’m about NC25/NC30, medium in color). On my skin, the powder lasted seven and a half hours before fading.
