Well, well, well…
I think I just found my new BFF off-duty/weekend face makeup product. MAC’s new Studio Sculpt Defining Powder ($32) has a finish like an ocelot…in that it’s elusive — the finish, I mean (cats on the brain). It has that elusive real skin-like finish that isn’t easy to find in a face powder. No matter how much I pack it on, it doesn’t look fake, caked-on or powdery.
With an ultra-fine, super sheer formula and a delicate sheen, I think it looks very natural on the skin.
Even when I threw caution to the wind and applied several layers of Medium Deep using a kabuki brush (in the interest of makeup science, of course), I still couldn’t see any tell-tale traces of powder. It was as if I wasn’t wearing anything on at all.
But yet my pores looked smaller, my skin tone looked nice and even, and I couldn’t see my freckles at all. It’s the old “no-makeup” makeup effect, and I love it.
Available in eight shades, the MAC Studio Sculpt Defining Powders are part of the new Studio Sculpt Collection, a 10-piece release heading permanently to all North American MAC locations and maccosmetics.com September 4 (through October 30).

Wow! I feel like I’ve been taking pics all day long. I can’t believe the day is almost over.
How are you doing? I haven’t come up for air in a few hours. El Hub and I are thinking about going to a movie tonight… There’s really nothing out that we’re dying to see, but sometimes I really like going to the movies during the workweek because then it feels like more of a treat (this is what we’re thinking about seeing).
Anywho, that’s the way my brain works…
Hope you’re having a good day so far. Your nephew says, “Mrow!”
