The MAC Power Hungry Palette from the new MAC Girls collection, coming to select MAC counters August 3rd
I keep telling myself, “Karen, let it go, girl. LET IT GOOOOOOO.” But I just can’t! So this one’s for my fellow word nerds who also noticed an absence of alliteration in the name of the new MAC Power Hungry Palette and can’t let that sh*t go (oh, gawd, please tell me I’m not the only one!).
13 Alternate Alliterative Appellations for the MAC Power Hungry Palette
- Power Perfectionist
- Power Professional
- Power Player (thanks, Kim, for mentioning this one in the comments!)
- Power Performer
- Power Participant
- Power Producer
- Power Provider
- Power Protagonist (my personal pick)
- Power Partner
- Power Principal
- Power Person
- Power Professor
- Power Patrician
I mean…a little alliteration never hurt anyone. ?
Power Hungry is the second palette I’ve played with from the MAC Girls collection (I really liked the first one, Rockin’ Rebel), and it’s the neutral palette in the girl gang.
I’m an NC42 for reference.
It’s sort of like MAC’s take on a UD Naked palette, except without a black or gray shadow, and with an additional big pan of highlighter.
Hungry for swatches?
Lots of layering
I have mixed feelings about it… Browns are my jam — you know this — and I like how soft these feel when I touch them, but I need to do A LOT of layering for them to show up.
Check the highlight, though!
Even for this natural-ish eye makeup look I’m wearing, I must’ve put on six or seven layers of Bling Mistress, Bossing It and Something’s Fishy. I actually lost count!
It was a lot… Let’s just say that.
Even then, I wasn’t very happy, because the powders, which are in MAC’s Foil formula, aren’t as finely milled as the Foils in Rockin’ Rebel. The grains are larger this time, and they reeeeeeally like to drop from my lids and my brush onto my cheekbones.
The highlight is the highlighter
I do love the highlighter, though! It’s more blinged-out than my preferred soft and glowing highlight style, but I like the soft opalescent effect I get from using a tiny touch on my skin.
You can also reach spotlight status easily, too, if brighter, bolder boss-lady bling is more your thing (the look is similar to what you get from the MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinishes).
That’s Power Hungry on my lids, my upper cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose.
I really love the colors themselves, but you might have to bust out a base like the Paint Pots if you’re an NC42 or darker to get them to translate truthfully on your skin. Maybe something beige…like Painterly or Bare Study. Soft Ochre would work, too.
Power Hungry arrives with the rest of the MAC Girls collection August 3rd at select MAC locations and online. Like the other palettes, it’s $39.50 and will only be available for a limited time.
