Can MAC's New VV Magically Cool Powder Make Your Flaws Disappear?

Yes ladies & gents, I gave in to the mystique of MAC's new Magically Cool Powder from the Venomous Villians collection. How could I resist trying out a powder product that claims to feel like a cool liquid upon contact with the skin?

I tried out the lighter of the two shades Truth & Light. I have read other's opinions of this powder and still couldn't figure out what to use it for, so I figured I would go with the lighter of the two shades, thinking I could always use it as a highlighter.

So what happened when I stuck my 109 brush in this mystical product and started tapping it against my cheekbones.......oooooeeeeeeeeeehhhhhh!!! A tingling, cooling feeling of a chilled cream being buffed into my cheeks!!

Yes, this actually feels like a cool liquid upon first touch to the skin. The feeling only lasts a few seconds, which is nice, because I wouldn't want to feel like the coolness all day long. Yes, this product is definitely both senses of the word!!

I tried my best to photograph it for you, and if you have a good eye, you can see there is a patch of lightness on my skin in the swatch above. There is a bit of ultra fine shimmer to this product, so I prefer using it as a highlight...on the cheeks, browbone, wherever. You can apply this all over the face if you want a dewy look. It won't look shimmery or glittery, but it will add glow. The first time I tried it out, I tried it all over my face just to test it out, and I didn't look shiny, but I did have that J.LO glow.....not necessarily a bad thing, but not good for everyday or for photographs.

Kajal Couture Overall Rating: A-

Kajal Couture Overall Opinion: I gave this a high score for uniqueness and because it's just pretty darn cool. It isn't the most amazing highlighter I have ever come across, but I do like it, and now I am tempted to get the darker color Cajun to use as a contour or cheek color. By the time you read this, I will probably already have ordered it. =)

What do you think of this? Whether you want it or not, go ahead and play around with it next time you are at MAC just to experience the cool-liquid magic! What are you planning to get from the Venomous Villains collection?


  1. Hey I think I will skip this one and get the darker one, mainly because I feel I'll get more out of it. I have a long list of things I want from this collection, but I haven't even started buying yet. Hoping nothing is sold out till next week though!

  2. What a collection! So many things to choose from. Thanks for the review on an interesting new product. I think I'll be passing on this collection to save for the holiday ones coming up.

  3. Oh wow, thanks for posting about this, will definitely try it when I visit my M.A.C store.:D

  4. @Adorable Yes, I think the darker one could be more useful for contouring or as a blush. Let me know what you think when you try it!

    @ Neena OMG there are so many great products being released this holiday season....what are you looking forward to the most?

    @Marie It's such a funny feeling! I want to hear your thoughts when you try it!
