Glow On: MAC Beauty Powder (Shell Pearl)

Happy Chinese New Year! It is now the Year Of The Snake.

To celebrate, MAC launched a collection full of colors and textures that would make any beauty (and reptile lover) positively giddy.

The MAC Beauty Powder in Shell Pearl was the only thing I liked from this collection. It’s all re-promotes, so if you missed out on something previously (like the Shell Beauty Powder), now would be a good time to stock up. Despite the utterly fabulous promo picture…

…closer inspection of the collection proves that there’s really nothing that you either haven’t seen, or swatched before. MAC did add that fabulous packaging and snake detail on all of the products, and I’m sure that enticed more than a few beauties to snap up items that they already had… just for the extra detail.

Shell Pearl was last seen in the Liberty Of London Collection. This time, it’s back in black packaging, with snake detail..

This powder is a true highlight. It’s on the sheer side, and goes on a peachy gold. On my warm skintone, it adds subtle light…
