It retails for $32 CAD on the MAC Cosmetics website, and checking as of right now, it's sold out. I was afraid that would happen that's why I ordered it as soon as it launched online. The packaging on this, which I forgot to take photos of here is a white compact, it reminds of a surf style, not really my taste, but it's what is inside that matters.
Here are swatches of the three colours, starting with the gold oveerspray, then the orange itself and then mixed in. I love how the orange part swatches on my finger but.. when applies on the skin it does not translate the same which is a huge disappointment for me! I don't know why it does this, something about my body chemistry changes the shade? Maybe with a primer it would hold better?
And here is it swatched on the back of my hand (sorry the lighting was terrible today, Toronto weather sucks). The center colour is no longer orange, but more of a coral colour (fail!). Blended with the overspray, depending on how much you put in, it does tone the redness down considerably. As far as the gold overspray itself, I find it a bit chalky for MAC, I was hoping for better quality.
which I reviewed yesterday) is NARS Taj Mahal. For those of you who were scared it would be too orange, as you can tell the MAC powder is a lot more peachy and subtle next to the other.
Would I recommend this product? I feel like I've been duped by MAC once again. The colour that I was hoping My Paradise would be is not really true. The colour is pretty and I like having this powder in my collection because it's beautiful but it's not what I wanted it to be. If the powder changes colour on you please let me know, maybe there is something I can do to achieve that colour in the pan.
