Must have : By candlelight

Ladies, let me introduce you to one of the prettiest beauty powder on earth : 

Mac - By Candlelight 

 Mineralize skin finish powder, which means you can use it all over your face or just at some strategic spots like your chubby cheeks , forehead etc.

The colour is pretty natural, it doesn't give me any tan so it's pretty easy to apply on without going crazy shiny discoball.  

I love using it when I go super heavy smokey on my eyes, or super bright lips as I hate wearing blush at the same time : it's either bright blush and light eye/lips makeup or bold lips/eye makeup and light blush.

Yeah I have some weird makeup rules

How super pretty is this powder?  I can't even explain how infatuated I am with this little gem.

The title says MUST HAVE as I'm pretty sure this powder could works for almost every skin tones as it is more of an highlight than a regular powder. 

Have a great day :) 
Kiss Kiss, Marilou


  1. When i swatched it, it seemed exactly like Perfect Topping and i am selling mine because it's not that great and finely milled...I think i prefer Dior amber diamonds!

  2. I've wanted By Candlelight for as long as I can remember!

    Did you get yours recently?? Because as far as I'm aware it only came out with two collections years ago.

  3. @Ellysmakeupbag Dior amber diamonds looks super pretty indeed (just when looked out the swatches ) well if you're selling yours, I think @Nora could be intersted :)

    @Nora Yes I bought it almost a year ago I can'tremember which collection it was in, but if you're intersted I think that @Ellysmakeupbag is selling hers :D

    I can feel a great powder deal here girls LOL

  4. Je l'ai et juste je l'aime d'amour :p ^^ Elle est sublissime :))♥

  5. So much makeup, I think I would die if I ever became a girl! D=

  6. I love By Candlelight, it gives such a lovely glow to cheeks, I always get compliments wearing it. Good choice! xx

  9. this is pretty, I have it, but would never wear it all over my face, it's far too shimmery, works night as a highlighter though.

  10. Hello je viens de découvrir ton blog, il est trop cool :) d'abord merci pour l'adresse du Mac à Bruxelles, je suis tout le temps à Bxl mais je ne savais pas qu'il y en avait un! Et aussi je trouve que tu resembles beaucoup à l'actrice Emily Blunt ^^ Bonne continuation
