I picked this up at the outlet for my daughter's dance recital but wound up keeping it for myself. It's so pretty and lasts on the skin. Great product!

this is a really great product for highlighting your cheekbones or to add in your moisturizer for a nice subtle shimmer. if you use it on your face go VERY lightly with it, you just need a tiny bit and it goes a long way. i even pressed a little of this in an empty eye shdaow pan so i can take it with me in palette when i travel. its much more convenient than taking the whole jar. it sells for $21 which is cheap cause they give you a lot, this powder could seriously last you years depending on how you use it.

This product is a superb silver shimmer that can be used many ways. I have both this one & the golden bronze. It looks great whether applying a little or a lot. The container is huge & I have had it for several years and I am not even halfway through it.

this is a wonderful highlighter, and i'd recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat. this looks best in the summer as i wind up looking a little 'frosted' in the winter when my complexion is lighter. for the amount of product you get and the versatility you can have with this, it's worth every penny.
i dust a little on my cheekbones, and i use it in the inner corners of my eyes, and it brightens my entire eye area. i buffed this onto my arms and legs when i went to the beach, and it looked stunning.
the only problem i have with this product is the packaging. i occasionally travel here and there, and a plane ride later, there's product everywhere when i open the jar. trying to get it back through the sifter is no easy task either.
other than that, this is amazing.

This product gets my vote, with one important caveat: the key with this stuff is controlled and careful application. The first time I played around with it I dusted it over my face with my #129 brush and it looked okay in the bathroom light, but when I took my mirror outside and checked myself out in the truthful light of day, I realised that I looked like a sweaty drag queen. From this, I learned a few things, namely to dust it only lightly on the cheekbones, browbone and very lightly around the eyes, and to avoid dusting it on the forehead (which I found the cause of the sweaty look). Also, I really wouldn't wear this during the day because it is a bit too disco glam for daylight. For a more subtle all-over shimmer, I recommend ModelCo Shimmer Airbrush Illuminator. You can control the amount of shimmer by spraying the can further or closer to your face and body. A light spray of this over the face and body sets the look and doesn't leave you looking like a disco tragic.

This is becoming one of my fav MAC products. It looks extremely gorgeous if applied correctly. I use it with my 184 brush and it looks perfectly glowy on my skin. I will definitely repurchase.

Not that I've needed to purchase again, but I would! It lasts forever, and a little goes a long way. During the day i mix with my foundation, and use to highlight my eyebrows, and in the evening I use it with some cheek stain and on my arms and chest.
Looks great!

You get lots of shimmery silver powder w/ this. I love it as a highlighter on my brows, as long as i use a light touch. It is very rich and can be overpowering if you use too generously.
My favorite use for it so far is to sprinkle a small bit of it into my hand before lotioning my arms and shoulders for a subtle, but flirtatious sparkle while out on the town.

I have the irridescent loose powder in silver dusk. It's interesting, but in all honesty, I'm disappointed with it. I think that it is misleading to call it irridescent. Irridescent means that it breaks up the light and gives a rainbow-colored oil slick effect. This powder is just glittery. It's also VERY strong. Maybe I'd dust it over my shoulders or in my cleavage, but I can't imagine using it on my face. I'd say get fairylite pigment or Shu IR rainbow eyeshadow instead. If it were sold as a glittery powder, I'd probably give it a higher review. But as an irridescent powder, it falls short.

This was a rec for Valentine's Day. Because of nasal allergies and sinusitis,:( I have to be careful with loose powder, but when I use it I am picky! It is expensive, but as I won't use as my "staple" powder it will pay for itself...This is excellent quality. A definately pink with slight silver sheen, not over the top, a unique sexy sheen. Now if they would just make this particular color in compact form...
