AMW Reviews: Mary Kay Sheer Dimension Powders

Over the holidays, I got a gift from our friends from Mary Kay and I literally gave an imaginary whistle (cause I don't know how) hahaha.  The box was housed in a regular, plain black box with Mary Kay Logo so I am not sure what to expect.


Low and Behold, once I opened the box, check out the gorgeously packaged Sheer Dimension Powders!  Got 2 shades from them and I can't help but scream: "PERFECT!"

in Lace (Coral)
in Pearls (Opalescent)

Mary Kay says ---
Fashion, color and luminous skin come together in an entirely new dimension.  Sheer Dimensions Powder is an exquisite finishing touch that makes your skin look smoother as it diminishes the appearance of fine lines with stunning, all-over luminosity.

Available shades: Pearls, Ribbon, Lace and Chiffon

Ingredients: 





AMW says ---
Pros

  • Super cute, clear packaging wherein you can see the nice design of the powder.
  • Gives a very natural effect no matter how much you apply.
  • Lace (Coral) is a great everyday shade that works for ALL skin tones.
  • Pearls (Opalescent) on the other hand is a great highlighting powder that doesn't look fake.
  • Reflects light so it gives a nice healthy glow.
  • Shades can also be used as eyeshadow.
  • Fragrance-Free.
  • No allergies or skin irritations. 

Cons

  • Not widely available.
Overall
These powders remind me so much of MAC's Mineralized SkinFinishes in terms of the soft-focus effect it gives wherever applied.  Pigmentation is good and powder can stay the whole day with normal skin while retouch may be needed for people who suffers from oily skin.  

Tips

  • Pearls is a very sheer formula that can be used on face and body.
  • Lace is a perfect everyday shade that is best used as blush.
Will I repurchase?
I am very interested with Ribbon and Chiffon!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who likes to enhance the look of their skin in a quick and easy manner.

Where to purchase and how much?
Mary Kay Sheer Dimensions Powder will be available beginning February 16, 2013 for Php1,900.00 (approx $47.50).
Available at Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant by calling them at (632) 859-6211 or visit www.marykay.com.ph   Follow Mary Kay on Twitter (@ilovemarykayph).

Lace 
Lace is said to be perfect for everyday and the finish can be from matte to satin to pearlescent.  Overall, it really depends on how much you would like to apply for various effects.

Pearls
Pearls on the other hand gives an overall luminosity and gives a nice "BB" cream-like finish!  Imagine applying this all over your arms and legs?  This is the easiest way to create glow on areas you would like to highlight!

Application - AMW style
I like using a blush brush to apply Lace as an everyday blusher and use a fluffy powder brush to apply Pearls all over the highest point of my cheeks, the center of my face and my chin for an overall glow!
