It might be a little colder out but I’m still into glowing my way into the room with a poppin’ highlight. I started out relying pretty heavily on my liquid illuminator and new dewy primer but since I finally dipped my brush into my MAC Alpha Girl Powder I’ve been all over it. I’m finally starting to see why people are so crazy about MAC Beauty Powders!
After Summer Opal and Alpha Girl I’m thoroughly impressed! The first time I saw the Beauty Powders in the new MAC is Beauty spring collection I didn’t think they’d be very brown girl friendly. Especially, Alpha Girl, a pale peachy pink with fine golden shimmer. It looks pale in the compact and swatches pretty light too.
But when applied? Alpha Girl is just stunning! The pale peachy pink base completely disappears on my complexion leaving behind a gorgeous golden glow that doesn’t look overly shimmery or noticeable. It’s more of a subtle glow that’s very soft. And the texture is pretty nice too! Alpha Girl is smooth, buttery and soft making it easy to pick up on a brush and blend. It can get a tiny bit powdery though.
Normally, I like my highlights more “in your face” but I’m really digging how nice Alpha Girl looks on me. Plus it’s buildable too so it’s easy to amp up the glow factor but not so easy that you’re left with disco ball cheeks. I’m actually quite surprised that Alpha Girl (along with most of the collection) is still in stock online. If you don’t have it, I’d hurry up and order one from MAC or Nordstrom before it’s gone!
