Yes ladies & gents, I gave in to the mystique of MAC's new Magically Cool Powder from the Venomous Villians collection. How could I resist trying out a powder product that claims to feel like a cool liquid upon contact with the skin?
I tried out the lighter of the two shades Truth & Light. I have read other's opinions of this powder and still couldn't figure out what to use it for, so I figured I would go with the lighter of the two shades, thinking I could always use it as a highlighter.
So what happened when I stuck my 109 brush in this mystical product and started tapping it against my cheekbones.......oooooeeeeeeeeeehhhhhh!!! A tingling, cooling feeling of a chilled cream being buffed into my cheeks!!
Yes, this actually feels like a cool liquid upon first touch to the skin. The feeling only lasts a few seconds, which is nice, because I wouldn't want to feel like the coolness all day long. Yes, this product is definitely cool....in both senses of the word!!
I tried my best to photograph it for you, and if you have a good eye, you can see there is a patch of lightness on my skin in the swatch above. There is a bit of ultra fine shimmer to this product, so I prefer using it as a highlight...on the cheeks, browbone, wherever. You can apply this all over the face if you want a dewy look. It won't look shimmery or glittery, but it will add glow. The first time I tried it out, I tried it all over my face just to test it out, and I didn't look shiny, but I did have that J.LO glow.....not necessarily a bad thing, but not good for everyday or for photographs.
Kajal Couture Overall Rating: A-
Kajal Couture Overall Opinion: I gave this a high score for uniqueness and because it's just pretty darn cool. It isn't the most amazing highlighter I have ever come across, but I do like it, and now I am tempted to get the darker color Cajun to use as a contour or cheek color. By the time you read this, I will probably already have ordered it. =)
What do you think of this? Whether you want it or not, go ahead and play around with it next time you are at MAC just to experience the cool-liquid magic! What are you planning to get from the Venomous Villains collection?
