MAC Magically Cool Liquid Powder

Just in time for summer MAC is offering us three color choices of their Magically Cool Liquid Powder.

This powder made it’s debut during the Venomous Villains Dr. Facilier collection with the colors Truth & Light and Cajun, but now we also have the lovely Honey Rose.

Magically Cool Liquid Powder ($29.50)

  • Truth & Light – Sheer shimmer that reflects silver and pink
  • Honey Rose – Sheer rosy beige with multidimensional shimmer
  • Cajun – Sheer bronze shimmer that reflects gold

Brush ($42.00)

  • 187 – Duo fibre face brush

What these are, are a combination of water and powder that apply like a loose powder does, but they have a very cooling feeling to them. They have light diffusing pigments in them which is supposed to help soften fine lines and create a nice glow.

These are now part of the permanent collection.

Truth & Light is a verrrrry sheer wash on my skin tone, almost blends right it just showing a little bit of shimmer. That can definitely be nice for a very subtle glowy look.

Honey Rose is a really pretty peachy color on me that shows up better and also imparts a really nice sheen.

The thing about these powders is they are a little weird. They are definitely extremely soft and fluffy feeling and have a great cooling almost watery feel. But using them is kind of strange.

When you rub them into your skin at first, the powder kind of balls up but then it spreads out. But the little balls don’t always spread into a fine layer of powder so you have to brush them off. Again, strange stuff but also kinda cool.


To be honest I never really busted out Truth & Light other than one time, but I really do love the color of Honey Rose, so I think I will be more inclined to wear that one.

Availability: May 5th in North America and May Internationally

Pricing: $29.50 and $42.00 for the brush
