MAC Shaping Powders Review

I first bought MAC Shaping Powder around a year ago now and I have been absolutely hooked on them since. I use them for highlighting underneath my eyes and setting the concealer in place and it is perfect. Since buying my first one I have gone onto buy the whole shade range because they really are top quality.

I got this because to start with I wanted the Kat Von D shade and light pallet because I had seen so many people raving about the centre yellow shade. But I hate getting a pallet like that and loving one shade and wasting the rest of the other shades, because if you want that same colour you have to buy a new pallet. I have heard now in the Kat Von D shade and light that in the future you are going to be able to get refills but the principal is still the same.

So, I thought I would start my own highlight and contour pallet and I used the MAC Shaping and Sculpting Powders to fill it. The 3 Shaping Powders that I use are Soft Focus, Accentuate and Emphasise. They are all very different but all do the same thing which is brighten the face.

Accentuate Shaping Powder is a light pink/peach colour. I use this on the days when I am looking particularly purple underneath my eyes. I am rubbish at sleeping at night so quite often when I get up in a morning I have so much darkness under my eyes. So, this peach colour powder on top of my concealer and foundation cancels a little of the darkness which might be peeking out!

Soft Focus Shaping Powder is the one I believe which is similar to the one that everyone raves about in the Kat Von D Shade & Light Powder. It is very yellow in colour, but when it is applied to the skin it doesn’t show up this colour. It just makes the whole area bright. This is the powder that I use most.

Then lastly, I have Emphasise. This was a recommendation from Jaclyn Hill, not personally, but you get me… This is a white powder with a pearl shine through it. When I want to go a little heavier and my skin to look flawless I use this powder under my eyes. It seems to smooth out all fine lines and make everything look even.

I have been using these powders on myself for some time now and I have even bought a separate set for my freelance bridal kit and people always really seem to like them.
