MAC Cosmetics Star Trek: Tripping the Light Fantastic Powder in Strange New Worlds

You probably caught a glimpse of the MAC Star Trek collection when it pre-released over Comic Con weekend. And if you’re even remotely addicted to MAC Skinfinishes like I am, these Tripping the Light Fantastic Powders took your breath away.

First, look at this cool packaging! It’s similar to the original MSF packaging, no dome here (thank goodness). And it has a Star Trek 50th Anniversary insignia on it.

Tripping the Light Powders blend together a few shimmery shades in a whirlpool-like pattern. These aren’t as soft or shimmery as Skinfinishes, they have more of a blush texture. Strange New Worlds, the shade I received, reminds me a lot of MAC’s Centre of the Universe MSF though.

I was able to swatch the top half lighter shade and bottom darker shade separately. The bottom swatch is all of it swirled and blended together. This powder deposits a nice amount of pigment and shimmer, but it’s not over the top shimmer it is more of a shimmer sheen.

On my skin, Strange New Worlds is a nice peachy, gold blush with a bunch of shimmer. The finish when blended together reminds me a bit of Becca’s Shimmering blushes.

The shimmer does not accentuate my pores and the shade isn’t too orange, which I was worried about at first. If you’re a true MAC collector, you need this in your life!

Wear time on this was a bit less than average, I saw fading around the six hour mark. But WHO CARES LOOK AT THIS POWDER! The MAC Star Trek collection drops on September 1st. I don’t have a full colour story or prices yet, but when I do you’ll see it here immediately.

  • Definitely more of a blush shade for our relative skin tone. Loooove the look of it in the pan. Seriously breathtaking.

  • Ah, such a thing of beauty! This powder and Bird of Prey shadow are the items I’m lusting after the most! 🙂
