MAC Fashion Flower: Light Sunshine Beauty Powder

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.

Light Sunshine definitely reminded me of Play It Proper (Stylishly Yours, ’10), though Play It Proper is a smidgen lighter and more cool-toned, but on, I think those differences are downplayed. It also seems comparable to Flower Mist Dew (Emanuel Ungaro, ’08) but more pigmented.

I could see those with lighter skin tones liking this best. I would recommend those with deeper skin tones check it out in person before buying, because it looks like it would turn ashy.
