MAC Monday: Hello Kitty - Tippy and Fun & Games Beauty Powder Blush Swatches & Review10:00
Purchased by me/Contains affiliate links
It doesn't get much more adorable than MAC's Hello Kitty collection, which had MAC fans worldwide clamouring over it back in early 2009 and has remained one of the most coveted among collectors. I have a few bits and bobs from this collection to share, but today let's take a look at the Beauty Powder Blushes!
As far as I'm aware, Beauty Powder Blushes were a limited edition formulation that only appeared in a few collections before being buried in the MAC archives. They had a standalone collection in 2008, then popped up again in this collection and again in Style Warriors (2009). They're pigmented, like a blush, but have a softer, silkier texture, like some of the beauty powders. I wish MAC would bring them back !
The packaging for this collection is near saccharine in its cuteness, with pink glitter speckled throughout the glossy black compacts and a black, white, pink and grey Hello Kitty design emblazoned on it. The Beauty Powder Blushes have the same dimensions as a regular MAC blush.
Tippy is described as a 'midtone blue pink'. It has incredible colour pay off and applies and blends beautifully, which is handy since it could otherwise be very easy to overdo! When I tested it for wear, Tippy wore for eleven hours.
Fun & Games
Fun & Games is described as a 'soft orange peach' and has fine gold shimmer mixed in to give it a subtle and flattering luminosity. Like Tippy, it has lovely colour pay off and applies perfectly, buffing into the skin for a very natural flush. Fun & Games lasted nine hours on me.
What I liked:
- Both shades have incredible colour pay off
- Smooth, blendable texture
- Wear time ranges between nine and eleven hours
- MAC Cosmetics
- Specktra.net Clearance Bin
- Facebook sales groups
- Trade Me
