MAC Freshen Up High-Light Powder Wash and Dry Collection is the most popular item in the entire collection. It was immediately sold out the first day the collection was release on MAC website. And then, a week later, the moment it was released elsewhere, it was swiped off the shelves right away. Many people argue that this high-light powder is nothing special, the gold shimmer is nothing more but an overspray that will be gone in just a few uses. The same thing goes to the beautifully textured look. All you will be left with is a three-shaded pan that goes from yellow to light and then dark pink.
Aside from that, the high-light powder is nothing like a highlight powder, because it is a brightly pigmented warm coral shade. For that reason, it cannot be used as a highlighter all over the face, but rather as a blush. I am sure that’s what the creators meant it for, but the “high-light” portion of the product name suggested another meaning of the product. Honestly, I am ok with using it as a blush, because the shade is gorgeous and the pigmentation is both rich and easily buildable. Also, as for the raised embossed print on top, I am always prepared that eventually those disappear.
If you are a makeup collector and looking for a unique limited edition product, that this high-light powder simply needs to land into your collection. If you are not a collector, but bought many items from the MAC Wash & Dry Collection, it would be disappointing to pass this one by. If you are neither a collector, nor MAC Limited Edition collections fan, I would suggest to skip this item, especially if you already have enough blushes, or warm coral blushes, or if this shade is not for you.
