Editor's Rating & Review
Setting foundation with powder can look so powdered doughnut-like. That's why this baked, slightly luminescent, light-coverage powder is a keeper. It's matte enough to take away shine, but the bit of sheen makes it look more skin-like -- and no, it's not shimmery enough to highlight imperfections (I know that's what you were thinking). I've heard a few complaints about this causing breakouts, so if your skin is makeup sensitive -- beware.

Too much glitter.I have this in Soft and Gentle, which is probably best used as a highlighter. It is quite sparkly and frosty, and I try to use it sparingly. There's quite a bit of product, and I do like that it's baked, but it's not something I ever really reach for. Maybe another shade would change my mind about this product, but as for now, I'm not really in love with this product. UPDATE: I also have this in "Crystal Pink" from MAC's recent Semi Precious collection. I received it to test out for We Heart This. "Crystal Pink" is a sheer, light pink shimmer. It adds quite a bit of sparkle to my face. I tried to use just a small amount over my matte blush, and the look was nice. It adds a healthy glow to your face. However, I had to be very careful not to pick up too much product. There is a generous amount of product in each compact, especially given how little I use per application, so the $28 price tag isn't too bad, if you like using highlighters. I personally don't use highlighters often, and definitely not super shimmery ones. The wear time is so-so--it seems that the shimmer comes off rather easily/there's a bit of fall out. To be honest, I don't understand the draw of MAC MSF's. They do look pretty, all swirled and domed in the compact. But I don't feel that they're a particularly useful product. I have large pores, and this much shimmer tends to accentuate it. The amount of sparkle also seems a little bit much, even for me (I'm 25 years old). — 1 year, 10 months agoLipglossandSpandex | 520 reviews
Review subjectI love this compact, but I thought it was a highlighter/bronzer this whole time. — 1 year, 10 months agoMissPurple | 591 reviews
Too much shimmerYikes. This has some cool colors in it but the "glittery" look is a little much for me. And although the texture is very soft, my skin was just too sensitive for me to enjoy it. I reacted after a very short while. But I got it as a gift so I didn't have to pay for it. — 4 years, 11 months agoleo1999 | 605 reviews
