Steal/Splurge: Illuminating Powder

ILLUMINATING-POWDER-GRAY
Girlie, glamorous and oh-so flattering, illuminating powders hold a special place in my heart. While I used to shell out 30 dollars for MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Rio, I recently took a chance on Mark Light Show Illuminating Powder ($16). After a cheek-by-cheek comparison, it’s safe to say these two products are indistinguishable except, of course, for the price. A versatile combination of peach, pink and bronze, Light Show dusts on a like a dream, imparting a long-lasting dose of luminosity and brightness. And unlike other cheapie shimmers I’ve tried, this product adds more glow than glitter, a very good thing for those of well out of our teens (ahem).  –Meghan
