MAC laundry as well as dry collection High-Light Powder in freshen Up ($35.50)
In less time than it takes to throw a tons of delicates in the laundry (read: extremely bit time; i.e. super fast), you can “freshen up” your cheekbones with MAC freshen Up, the brand’s newest highlighting powder, coming soon as part of the laundry as well as dry collection.
So, what’s the 411 on freshen Up?
It’s a restricted edition warm-toned highlighter housing three satiny shades in one pan — a deep pinkish coral, a peachy coral as well as a yellow gold. Bust it out to add shimmer as well as radiate to your skin. Interestingly, the shimmery golden overspray that coats the entire pan sticks around for a surprisingly long time — this, compared to other oversprays that seem to vanish into thin air after a couple swipes. The shimmer dust right here settles into the bit holes as well as crevices in the pan’s design, so even after it appears like it’s all gone, my clean continues to pick up a few of the shimmer.

I sweep the powder on the high points of my deal with — my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose, on my Cupid’s bow as well as just above my brow bone — where I want to catch the light. wear the shades individually, like by packing a little tapered eye clean (like the MAC 266), as well as then applying, or utilize a fluffier blush or a highlighting clean to swirl all three colors together. In this pic, I’m using all of them swirled together.
(Note: if you’re a lighter lovely, you’ll most likely likewise be able to utilize freshen Up as a blush, too.)
How well does it work?
Here’s the deal: with more of a satiny sheen than the high-shine surface that many traditional highlighters have, these powders remind me of the hourglass Ambients. It takes a second to realize, “Oh! Homegirl is using highlighter,” so they don’t reach out as well as slap ya silly, in other words.

It’s more like a gentle tap. MDR!
That said, if you like that type of high-shine highlight, freshen Up’s soft shimmer most likely won’t do it for you. I occur to truly such as this level of shimmer, since I believe it’s easier for me to wear than highlighters with a high beam, metallic-type finish. Those can make my combo skin look additional dry, as well as make my fine lines come out to play (which is not good).
As for wear time as well as blending, neither are bad. No issues buffing out the edges, as well as the formula stays put for at least 6-7 hours.

Who’d most likely like it?
A enthusiast of nuanced sheens as well as subtlety. If you adore the hourglass Ambients, and/or prefer highlighters that aren’t strikingly shiny, you’ll most likely like freshen Up. If, on the other hand, you online for strong highlights, you may be left wanting more.
