♡Mac Beauty Powder:
Availability: CCO (Cosmetic Company Outlet)
Line: A Rose Romance
Hello again! I was fortunate enough to receive this in a swap with my friend Melissa. I was so excited because I wanted it when it came out but could not let myself spend the $30 on it. I've seen it at the cco before and mentioned it to her and she was kind enough to get it for me =).
So I couldn't find the beauty powders section on the Mac website but I think they come out with them when they have a new line coming up. Mac describes them as “a highlight, soft blush, or overall finish.” This one in particular is more of a soft blush. Mac's beauty powders are not as pigmented as their blushes but can be used as a blush (if you don't mind using multiple layers).

♡On the Face:
I used a heavy hand while applying this so you guys can see the color of the powder on my skin tone. I would personally layer this on 2x instead of 1x because I couldn't really see it the first time.
- Gives a soft natural blushed look
- Works on most skine-tones
- Not for girls with a darker complexion
I love Mac blushes but I would pass up on the beauty powders. I don't really use powder on my face since I have dry skin and I prefer liquid highlighters, so that only leaves the subtle blush option for me. This is more of a powder to sheer blush. As sheer as it is, it can go on as chalky during application as well. Mac's powder blushes are also a few bucks cheaper, I would recommend getting those instead of spending $30 on the beauty powder.
