Product Description

Taken from their website:

Cool and frosted. Soft and shimmering. The Glitter & Ice spirit of the season in an ultra-luxurious pressed powder. Graceful as all Beauty Powders should be. The inspiration behind the silver-domed glossy white compact - a snowglobe!

Pigmentation & Color:

This beauty powder is described as a shimmery pale taupe on the MAC website. I don't know about you, but I've always pictured taupe to be greyish and much darker! :D This powder is a shimmery pinky beige on me.

This swatches much lighter and pinker than it is in the pan. This is one of the more pigmented beauty powders - it actually shows up on my cheeks! :D

Finger swatch:

From left: Outer color, marbled middle color, both together

And this is me wearing this blush, applied 2x with the MAC 136:

Squint and you shall see! Haha! Featured here with the Pleasure Principle Dazzleglass (review coming tomorrow! :D)! :D

This one is slight more powdery than the usual beauty powders, but still lovely in terms of texture! :D


This beauty powder comes in a flip top compact with a mirror in it. This being from the Holiday collection features a pure white compact with reflective silver letterings on it:

The box it came in is silver too:

Time Test:
This product lasts about 7 hours on me :)

Price & Availability:
This beauty powder is priced at RM98, and should be available at all MAC stores. It is limited edition though, so grab it before it sells out!

This is perfect as a finishing powder! :D

My $0.02:

I'm a huge fan of the beauty powders from MAC. They're always so finely milled, silky smooth, and gives such a lovely soft focus glow to the face! :D

This beauty powder is no different! One of the more pigmented beauty powders, it does show up on my skin (I'm NW20)! :D

I can't really think of what I don't like about this beauty powder, except maybe it's limited edition! If Malaysia starts to snow and I actually finished this, I will definitely repurchase then! Hehehe!! :D
