MAC Beauty Powder Too Chic Review, Swatches, Photos

Little low on dough but really wanting the Chanel Natural Finish Powder in Jasmin I reviewed recently?

MAC Beauty Powder to the rescue!

Granted MAC’s version is a little smaller at 0.35 oz (Chanel’s is 0.53 oz) but the $23 price tag could sway you to Team Too Chic!

Too Chic was released with the Iris Apfel Collection and isn’t quite a complete dupe for Jasmin but it’s close enough if you’re on a strict budget considering it’ll save you $22 since Chanel’s version will set you back $45.

Where as Jasmin is a soft golden beige Too Chic leans towards being a paler creamy white gold with a fine iridescent sheen. You won’t want to use it on your entire face but you certainly can if you have fairer skin.

Beauty Powders have a silky formula and can be used to highlight certain areas of your face, brow bone, etc….on my medium fair skin Too Chic gives a soft glow with a subtle hint of shimmer.

I know some of you were craving the Chanel version after I reviewed it and this is a far better value if you’re on a budget.

It’s available for a limited time at MAC counters.

Own it?

    Okay I have $30, should I get Blonde MSF or Too Chic? I have NW20 skin

      lucy it’s kinda two different products hun. so really depends what you want, highlighter or blusher/highlighter.

        How strong do you think Blonde MSF would be on me as a blush? I’ve heard great things about both product but I’m not sure that $30 is worth it for just a highlight


        • 1/5/12 22:38 the Muse:

          not sure lucy, I’m not too familiar with mac’s foundation range so nw20 is greek to me. if you’re fair to medium blonde should be fairly pigmented to act as a glowy blusher of sorts however if you’re looking for a super pigmented blush it’s definitely not that.

    I bought this two nights ago and I am in love.
    I am using it as a brow bone highlight and I would describe it as having a “glowy sheen” rather than a “shimmer”. It’s beautiful!

    I totally agree with how BooBooNinja described it- I bought this last year when it was released with the Champale collection, and it’s definitely much less “frosty” than MSFs in my opinion and gives more of a glow. One of my favorite subtle highlighters!

    I saw this at my local CCO today; if you have one near you, you might want to check there first.

      Colleen, you’re so lucky you live near a CCO! This is my HG highlighter.
