MAC Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder ($34) is one of two shades MAC Snow Ball Face Powder Highlighter released with the Holiday 2017 Collection. I seriously don’t need another “pretty” highlighter in my stash. I have so many already, many of which aren’t even getting any love so I should be shot for even thinking about adding more to my stash. I blame MAC because this year they really caught my eye with their pretty snowflake packaging and accents.
Let’s take a look at MAC Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder below and see if you need it!
MAC Happy Go Dazzlingly Highlighter comes housed in a stunning gold champagne compact with a cracked ice design and a snowflake embossment on the powder. At some point if I hit pan on this I’d love to see if I could chisel the pan out and replace it with some facial powder as it’s just too beautiful not to carry around for touch ups on the go.
This is a light gold shade with a yellow undertone and a pretty luminous finish. There’s absolutely no reason you can’t use it on your eyes as well as your face. I did both and I thought it looked rather pretty as a soft gold color wash on my lids. In the photo below I’m wearing it on my cheeks and I took a bushy blending brush and just dabbed a little over my eyeshadow to give it a little touch of a golden sheen.
The powder has a soft, velvety texture with a smooth, even finish on my drier skin. It’s quite powdery and does kick up a good deal of “dust” when you swipe a brush through it so tapping is required because although sheer you can easily overdo your look if you don’t tap prior to application. I don’t really love highlighters in all honesty as it feels like I’m putting a spot light on my already full, round face but some do capture my eye from time to time and this is one. I thought this paired up nicely with a matte peach blush to add just a touch of a glow without chunky glitter or shimmer.
All in all, MAC Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder is a lovely little pick to add to your ever growing highlighter stash.
