MAC Fashion Flower: Overall & Recommendations

Fashion Flower feels like a nice-sized collection–enough to mix and match, but it’s not so large that it’s overwhelming.  MAC’s matte eyeshadows can be great, but they have a few duds in the mix and some that just work infinitely better when applied to the eye with a brush than in a mere arm swatch–and this is true with the mattes in this launch.

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.
