MAC for Chen Man


With so many awesome collections coming up, there was only one thing I really wanted from the Chen Man – Play it Proper Beauty Powder

But before we get to that, who is Chen Man….only China’s foremost fashion photographer.  Her work is just amazing – check it

So for this collaboration, there were lots of pretty blues, pinks and purples – mineralise eyeshadows, pigments, lipsticks, lipglass, nailpolishes – lots of stuff but I was particularly keen on the beauty powder.

MAC’s beauty powders are limited edition, but it seems like there’s always one in a collection.  MAC describe them as “A silky-soft “beauty” powder that’s delicately tinted and luxuriously pearl. Goes on as an ultra-fine shimmering “veil” to the skin. Can be applied as a highlight, soft blush or overall finish.”  Play it Proper is “Pastel soft pink with sparkles”, I wouldn’t say its sparkly though – more of a pearly sheen.  I’ve been using it mostly as a highlighter but it also works wonderfully as a lightly all-over finishing powder that gives a soft focus, illuminating halo effect.  Love it!

 So here’s the compact (with mirror but no applicators) in natural light


And the skin swatch.  See how subtle it is! it’s perfect for my ghostly hue
