MAC Marilyn Monroe Beauty Powder review

RATING – 8.9 OUT OF 10

MAC Marilyn Monroe Beauty Powder is slightly tinted sheer pearly peach with a hint of shimmer and can be used for overall finish or just as a soft blush. The idea is pretty good because there is no one who does not crave for the flawless skin of Marilyn Monroe. It is amazing for all types of skin owing to its matte finish

Price: $28.50 USD/ $34 CAD for each compact of MAC Marilyn Monroe Beauty Powder weighing 0.35 oz/10g. The cost is little pricey but a fair bargain for fair or pale skin.

Staying Power: When used without any base MAC Marilyn Monroe Beauty Powder last for 5 to 6 hours before starting to fade. When used with proper base it can last longer.

Packaging: MAC Marilyn Monroe Beauty Powder is packed in a special black limited edition compact featuring a photograph of Marilyn Monroe on its lid. It also has a mirror inside. The packaging and the name are the highlights of this Mac’s Marilyn Monroe collection which make it a dream collection for make-up lovers.

Color/texture: It is very lightly pink tinged peach hued. The color looks more intense peach in the pan but when applied it turns pinkier. Though described as sheer, the color is buildable and has pigmentation with effortless blend. The texture is soft and chalky. It also looks powdery at times.

Pros of the product: Perfect for a natural looking blemish less Marilyn Monroe like skin. MAC Marilyn Monroe Beauty Powder is non-drying and lasts for long time. It can be used as highlight for any skin tone and blush for fairer skin, but great when used as overall powder. It is suitable for normal to oily complexion as it tends to look dry. It also blends easily and comfortable in application.

Cons of the product: It is not that much of sheer and sometimes looks chalky on some skin tones. MAC Marilyn Monroe Beauty Powder looks incredible on fair skin and not totally suitable for darker skin. On medium toned skin it gives an ashy look.
