One of my favourite makeup products is my MAC Cinderella Beauty Powder in Mystery Princess. The soft powder is lightly tinted and possesses a delicate sheen. You can use it all over your face to create a beautiful luminous glow. It’s subtle yet very pretty and I can’t help but feel like a princess when I wear it. Due to it’s limited edition status, I use this very rarely as I hate the thought of it running out and not being able to buy a new one. How else would I get a princess glow then?
I was browsing the Makeup Revolution stand in Superdrug the other day and could not quite resist their new highlight in Moon Glow Lights. This highlight is really subtle with lots of fine shimmer, meaning you can build it up as a strong highlight or gently apply it all over the face. It wasn’t until I was applying a more subtle, fresh faced makeup look that I realised Moon Glow’s similarities to Mystery Princess.
When comparing the packaging, Mystery Princess is a hands down winner. It’s pale blue and shimmery just like Cinderella’s dress and it’s accented with gold. It even has a mirror! However when comparing the actual look of the product, Moon Glow is so much prettier. I almost want to put Moon Glow into the Mystery Princess packaging, now that would be gorgeous.
If you look at the swatches above can you tell a difference? The left swatch is slightly lighter in colour and the right swatch has a slight pink hue. However these are really minimal and I can’t really tell the difference between the two. After posting this photo on Instagram, one comment suggested the right swatch was the high end product. When actually it’s Moon Glow! It really is an excellent illuminating powder.
If you missed out on the MAC Cinderella launch and really wanted to get your hands on Mystery Princess, Moon Glow is a really good dupe. It’s also only £3, you can’t really go wrong. This product will definitely turn you into a glowing princess too.
Have you got any other great Mac dupes you’d love to share? I’d love to know in the comments below.
