MAC Cosmetics Holiday 2017: Snow Ball Face Powders in Here Comes Joy + Happy Go Dazzingly

The MAC Cosmetics Holiday 2017 Snow Ball collection launched this week and I ran to my nearest MAC counter the first chance I got to pick up the two shimmery Face Powders: Here Comes Joy and Happy Go Dazzingly.

Literally, I am on vacation right now in Nova Scotia and I planned my day around how to make the mall “on my way” to my next destination.

First, let’s talk packaging. The box itself is unique among all my other MAC items as it is a clear plastic with gold embossing. Definitely a keeper. The packaging is sturdy plastic with a mirror inside with an opulent textured/frosted gold pattern. The finish of the package is smooth.

Even though these are labelled as “Face Powders” they are really opalescent highlights/shimmers. These have less pigmentation than an Extra Dimension Skinfinish but are about as shimmery as some of the regular Mineralize Skinfinish formulas. I have yet to try these out on my face, so stay tuned for an update!

UPDATE: I tried both today an LOVE the gold but may return the peach. The gold is a perfect highlight, nice and shimmery. But the peach is really lacklustre and disappointing.

The MAC Snow Ball collection is available online at MAC, The Bay (Canada), Nordstrom, Ulta.
