MAC presented a new makeup spring collection which was created in collaboration with well-known Chinese jewelry designer Bao Bao Wan.
The collection was inspired by the jewelry, manufacturing Bao. And this collection offers us a shimmering, shiny texture, shades of gold and precious stones.
Shining powder impressed me most of all the collection.
MAC Bao Bao Illuminating Beauty Powder in shade Summer Opal.
Opal is one of the most beautiful natural stones. The name of the stone comes to us from the Greek and the Latin. The Greek word “opalios” means changing color and the Latin word “opalus” is bewitching sight. Painting of the stone is diverse; there are more than 140 species of this gem wide variety of shades. The shade of this powder is as multifaceted as precious opal.
Summer Opal is a light bronze-pink hue with golden inclusions. This shade is so gentle that it is almost imperceptible on the skin. It gives light satin glow, and shimmer is invisible even under sunlight. As for me, this powder is truly a jewelry creation; there is only flawless beauty of jewelry rather than bright vulgarity and saturated colors.
This powder creates stunning shine on the skin. It can be used as a highlighter or eye shadows, and even blush. For white-skinned girls, it can be used as a bronzer, creating the effect of tanned skin. Alternatively, the powder can be applied on the body, for example to emphasize clavicles.
It is difficult to overdo this powder. It gives so thin coating that the first time it is almost invisible. And that is great, because the powder should create a weightless, invisible coverage, but apparently improving skin condition. In this case the powder gives a tint and illuminates skin.
Because of its illumination effect, I do not advise you to put it on the face. It should be used in doses; despite the delicacy of shade there is a real opportunity to overdo it. I suppose any one girl is not satisfied with fully shine face.
For me this wonderful product is a real jewel that can enhance the beauty of the skin. I’m very happy with this purchase!
