MAC Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder Opalescent : Swatches & Review

PURCHASED
MAC Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder Opalescent.
 The MAC Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder Opalescent retails for $34US and $38CAN for 10g /0.35 us oz, which is the same size and packaging still of MAC Beauty Powder in the past which were only $26US and $32CAN 3 years ago just to keep track of pricing. This is a highlighter despite the product not listing it as a highlighter.

Product & Colour:
The MAC Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder Opalescent is a pearly shimmer formula that is reminiscent of the shimmer (not glitter) formula of the Extra Dimension Skinfinish. Both products are made by the Italy based manufacture so it makes sense that the pigmented used are similar. the powder feel slightly dense in the pan compared the new permanent Extra Dimension Skinfinish highlighters and I found that this Face Powder Opalescent is slightly more subtle... but they are very similar!

Wear: The beauty powder lasts on my skin past the 12+ hours, this version came close but 1 hours.

Packaging: Crackle foil clear coated compact with a mirror in the lid. The only thing that bugs me is the white plastic I'm surprised they didn't go with a black plastic base. Or the rose gold colour Face Bag kit version with Show Glow in it with this collection has a matching rose/brown plastic as the base, just find it jarring because of the compact it both pretty and functional so why the visual hot spot. Still love the packaging though.

Daylight & Flash swatches: Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder Opalescent applied heavy and buffed out.

Daylight & Flash swatches: MAC Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder Opalescent vs Laura Geller Baked Gelato Vivid Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey.
MAC Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder Opalescent is more yellow and slightly lighter compared Laura Geller Baked Gelato Vivid Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey.

Another shade that was close to this one but slightly lighter than the Happy Go Dazzingly Face Powder, is the MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Beaming Blush, the pink doesn't show up as strong in it, all I can see is mostly the gold glow on me with a very subtle pink shift on my pale skin.

Verdict:
This is a really nice offering from MAC for their holiday offerings and was only able to pick this up in store... dame has this collection sold out fast. But the main draw for me was the packaging in this case and the powder is really nice but still dupe-able. I was planning to purchase the MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Beaming Blush in the future at IMATS or a black Friday sale in the future, so don't feel discouraged if you missed this one or the price with tax is too rich for you at the moment.
