MAC Step Bright Up/Alche-me is a very warm-toned, light-medium gold with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition highlighter that retails for $38.00 and contains 0.28 oz.
MAC Step Bright Up/Alche-me Hyper Real Glow Duo ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium gold with warmer, more orange undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation--the brand wasn't particularly helpful on pigmentation, which they described as "luminous payoff"--that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin.
The powder was incredibly soft and smooth to the touch without being powdery at all. It lasted well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
Step bright up to this M·A·C highlighter compact that packs two hues for supercharged radiance. With an irresistibly cream-like powder formula, the shades blend effortlessly to leave an ultra-reflective yet flawlessly smooth sheen. Highlighter features an embossed spiral design. All dressed in hypnotic optical-illusion packages.
