MAC Cinderella: Beauty Powder in Mystery Princess

Monday, March 9, 2015

Last Thursday, MAC released their collaboration collection with Disney's Cinderella, meant to coincide with the movie launch next week. This collection is available online and at MAC Stores only. It is inspired by, of course, Cinderella: "Classic and compassionate, the most famous Disney princess of all inspires a limited-edition colour collection magical enough to make all your fairytale dreams come true. Beloved for generations for her benevolent heart and whimsical mind that dares to dream, Cinderella envisages enough makeup shades to fill a pumpkin carriage." The entire collection features a total of 17 products, of which seven are new and limited edition, five are re-promotes, and five are permanent. Cinderella will see the launch of one new and limited edition shade of Beauty Powder. It comes in a pearlized light blue mirrored compact with gold trim and the Cinderella logo on the lid in gold, along with matching secondary cardstock packaging. Each Beauty Powder contains 10 grams of product, and retails for $33.

Mystery Princess

Mystery Princess

Mystery Princess is a pale cool-toned pinked beige with silver pearlized shimmer-sheen. This is a new and limited edition shade. It has a soft, dense texture, and goes on smoothly and evenly. It has high pigmentation and semi-opaque to opaque buildable colour pay-off. It can be layered and blended out easily. It is slightly cooler and more shimmery than Lightscapade Mineralize Skinfinish, lighter and cooler than Soft and Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish, and less sparkly than Light Touch Pressed Pigment.

Like the Iridescent Powder, this Beauty Powder is meant to be used as a skin illuminator (it's basically a non-mineral version of Mineralize Skinfinish), and they both have fairly similar textures: soft, dense, and smooth. Whereas Coupe D'Chic is meant to add sparkle to the face, Mystery Princess has more of a pearlized finish and adds "a touch of radiance for skin that seems to glow from within." When Mystery Princess is buffed into the skin, it really does look glowy and softly illuminated, whereas Coupe D'Chic remains sparkly no matter how much you buff it in. Because the Beauty Powder has less sparkle content, it does seem to be more pigmented and have more colour pay-off as well (as a result, those with darker skintones will need to use it with caution lest it become ashy or chalky). The effect is angelic, ethereal, and rather enchanting — definitely Cinderella as the belle of the ball.

  1. It is a darn good thing I don't have a Cinderella or highlighter obsession. The collection looks so pretty. It's too bad they missed the boat on making one item with a clear case, like the glass slipper.

    1. I totally agree with the packaging. I wish they'd have incorporated the glass slipper motif, maybe engraved into the powder. The Cinderella logo is just so... boring. I mean, even with Maleficent, they incorporated her ravens. I think the gold and pale blue is a good colour combo, though.

      But this collection sold out SO FAST -- even faster than the Rihanna collections. So yeah, good thing you don't have a Cinderella obsession, lol!
