Review: MAC Fashion Flower Beauty Powders

MAC Fashion Beauty Powder in Light Sunshine

This review covers the 2 MAC Fashion Flower Beauty Powders in Light Sunshine and Alpha Girl.

  • Light Sunshine: pastel neutral pink with soft gold and pink sparkles (limited edition)
  • Alpha Girl: soft peachy pink with gold nuances (re-promote from Heatherette)

Please see this post for more photos of the beauty powders.

Packaging: 9.25/10

These beauty powders come in standard MAC packaging. The plastic compacts have flip-up, snap-shut lids and can easily be taken on-the-go. Both powders have an embossed flower design on the pan.

Quality: 9/10

Light Sunshine is a very, very light pink color that is also shimmery. This color is too light for even the lightest skin tones to be used as a blush or for color, but it makes for a great highlighter.

Alpha Girl is a very soft coral pink color. The color is subtle, but can be layered. You’d have to really pack it on to use it as a blush, but it makes a great overall color.

Ease of Use: 9/10

Both these colors go on without a lot of work. You may have to apply several layers of Alpha Girl depending on how much color you want.

Price: 8.5/10

These are the same size (10 g) and price ($25.00) as regular MAC beauty powders.

Final Grade


Toss if: you want powders you can use as prominent blush colors
Buy if: you want a finely-milled highlighter or subtle coral color for the cheeks
