MAC for Chen Man

20120324-150812.jpg

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!

Cheeky! Recent MAC purchases

MAC has released a heap of LE collections lately.  I’m trying to be good and limit myself to one piece per collection, so far so good!  I picked two cheek products, as Stunner (from MAC Me Over) has been a bit lonely.  I’ve been a little afraid of blush – I knew a girl who would always OD on it which put me off, but here we go!

MAC for Daphne Guinness – Blush Ombre Azalea Blossom (light cool pink)

I love this, it’s perfect for days with bright fuschia lips

MAC Naturally – Mineralize Skinfinish in Redhead (gold to salmon pink degrade)

This is lovely and warm, but not orange.  I looked at blonde as well, but gave it a skip.  I couldn’t really see that much of a difference between them when applied with a brush, just that redhead was slightly warmer.  So I figured I’d go with something different.  I’m also trying to branch into warmer colours, so this is my baby step 🙂

Swatches after the jump!
