Reflecting the lighthearted luxury of this Champagne-shaded post-holiday collection, a silky, pigment-rich, creamy powder that imparts a natural, fully dimensional glow all over the face. The style note: the powder's crinkled paper emboss design. Consider it vintage M∙A∙C. Limited edition.

Pigmentation & Color:
This product is proof that the same damn thing can appear very differently on different skin tones! On some, all you get is a nice sheen, but on some, they get this gorgeous sunkissed colors! For yours truly, this appears as a light pink, so i guess it works more as a highlighter for my NW20 skin! This shade is described as a soft pink with gold shimmer on the website, which I would say is accurate! :D
This is how it looks on yours truly (layered over the MAC Joyous Beauty Powder Blush):
As you can see, the powder is hardly visible when layered over another blush, but it does give a lovely glow to an otherwise flat looking blush! :D
Though this powder is not as finely milled as some of their beauty powders, this does blend and apply beautifully! :)
This highlighter comes in a regular MAC flip top pan, but with a special crinkly surface which is super gorgeous!! :D
This highlighter lasts the whole day on my cheeks! :D
Price & Availability:
At US$28 / RM115 a pop i'll have to admit that its abit expensive, but you're getting your money's worth of product (don't think i can ever finish up 10 grams of highlighter! lol!)! This is limited edition and is probably sold out everywhere by now.
I usually layer this over another blush to give it a dimension :)
While the Cham Pale collection fell a little short for mua personally, their Special Reserve Highlight Powders did saved the day! :D
This highlighter is soft yet pigmented, and it gives just the right amount of glow without being overly glittery. I'm still trying to make it work as a blush though - I tried buffing it in with a kabuki brush but it got quite frosty! :(
Texture wise, this powder is not as finely milled as some of the other powders we've seen from MAC before, but it applies seamlessly nevertheless.
The only thing i didn't like about this one is the price! Ouch! >.<
That being said, I do think that this is a beautiful product, and I will repurchase IF i run out (which probably won't happen in the next 73 years or so)! lol!
