Finishing touch...
Tags +Natural looking, Non-Drying
As the second-to-last step (the last being applying Sculpting Powder) in creating the everyday or glamorous makeup look, Shaping Powder can be used to highlight areas of the face such as the (top of the) cheek bone, bridge of the nose, middle of the forehead, and chin to reflect light and create a natural "glow." Its lightweight formula makes it easy to apply and add to build the effect. Use with a blush or flat-topped duo fiber brush.

Works for Darker Complexions
Tags +Natural looking, soft highlight
I am a NW43/45 and was in search of a subtle highlighter suitable for darker complexions. I purchased this product at the MAC Pro Store. These work quite well in Warm light and Soft Focus without looking ashy on darker skin. They are an excellent daytime professional look and I would definitely buy them again. However, my all time favorite is still Mineralize Skin Finish in Gold Deposit for that wow factor. FYI, the complementing Sculpting Powders did not work for me at all. They were completely muddy or nonexistent on my skin tone. The MAC rep recommended one of the new Studio Fix + Foundation Powder in NW58 for sculpting instead and I absolutely love the combined look.

Emphasize!!
Tags +setting concealer under eyes
I use this as a setting powder under my eyes. Go in first with pro long wear concealer, blend with a beauty blender and use this to set the look. Just the perfect amount of matte with a touch of highlight pigment. Light enough that it will not settle in your creases.

Soft Focus
Tags +Natural looking, Shine control, setting concealer and shaping
This review is about Soft Focus shade. This is my favorite shade and it is very similar in color to Banana powder. If you get crease from your under eye concealer then this is it. This powder is so fine that it sticks on the skin like glue. It doesn't move and long wearing. Even in extreme case of creasing you have to touchup with your finger. It is very low maintenance powder and once you put it on, you are pretty much good for the day. For me it is a must have to contour and highlight. It is similar in shade to Banana powder but works differently.

No other powder of its kind comes close to this one

This gives a great uner the eye highlight, i am an NC 25 and used the color emphasize if u r darker u would want to try accentuate. It gives your eye an awake apperance while setting your concealer. However if you apply too much your under eye can look too white, so apply sparingly.

Let's just say it's worth the hype, if you're not experiencing the same results you're hearing about try using a different brush, I use a dense angled brush it fits perfectly under the eye area where you want the most highlight, trust me you'll love it!

THE ABSOLUTE BEST
Tags +Bold Color, Creamy, Color true, Long wearing
This is the only highlighting/setting powder that actually highlights and brightens on my fair complexion. I've struggled to find anything light enough, but this honestly does the job perfectly. It's finely milled, and I find it hard to 'cake up'. I will forever repurchase this product

Doesn't last long
Tags +Natural looking, Highlighting, darker skin tones
I bought this to go along side my Shadowy Sculpting Powder that I use for contouring (and I LOVE it), but I was slightly disappointed by this one. I had hoped that being nearly white it would show up more on my skin (NC15), but it didn't do much for me. It does bring a little bit of a glow-y sheen, and on darker skin tones it would probably be much more noticeable. On light skin tones it doesn't last long, it's hard enough to get it to be noticeable from the get go anyway! You're better off buying a cream highlighter or something with a lot more shimmer if you're light skinned like me, but I would still highly recommend the Sculpting Powder in Shadowy!

Awesome

I use to set my concealer and it really creates a brightening effect, without being too obvious (I use the shade closest to the banana shade, and I'm NC40).

Love this powder!
Tags +Contouring, Highlighting
I have the Soft Focus shade and I love it. It's the yellow highlighter I was looking for and it brightens my face and looks great when you contour! Some have said that they couldn't see a difference but you need to use a brush that can hold a lot of product because this powder is very fine, so you do need to cake the product on your brush to see it on your face.

I got this in Accentuate, and I didn't have any noticeable results using it. Maybe it's because I am so fair skinned, it's possible the lighter shade would have been better on me? It did feel nice going on to my skin and did not break me out.

I use this to set my concealer and it is beautiful! I like it because it's more natural looking than the banana powder I was using previously.

Sculpting powder in warm light
Tags +Non-Drying, Natural looking, Shine control, my cheeks!
A light peachy natural looking tone that I use on my cheeks. Subtle and natural looking. I like this for daytime with my new bronzing powder. These new sculpting powers are great. The consistency hides creases, etc. and can be used in so many ways! Incidentally, if you have one that you like to carry with you and don't want to put them in a palette, use one of your old compacts from MAC. I cut a carpet tape square and stick it inside! Good thing I've kept some instead of sending them in for recycling because I now have 5 in use! Some just stay on my make up counter, but I can always take one if it's going to be a long day and I might want to touch up. I like these better than regular powder because they blend in better on me!

I have the soft focus and I have tan skin. I don't necessarily see the powder on my face but I notice after I apply that it's just a brighter appearance. Looks amaz with contouring!

Great Setting Powder
Tags +Non-Drying, Natural looking
Love this product. I use it as a setting powder for my concealer. It is non drying and it does not settle in my under eye creases and wrinkles. I love this product. Its also great for a very subtle highlight.

Great as a shadow wash
Tags +eye shadow
While this is in the category of a face powder it works beautifully as an all over eye shadow wash. It's lighter than blanc type which is my staple and blends wonderfully.
