Words that get me excited: MAC x Star Trek Collection. Actually, any combination or variation of the words “Star Trek” and “makeup collection” will have me paying attention. I’m a huge fan of the show and I was excited for this collaboration honoring its 50th anniversary. Out of all the pieces – I was immediately drawn to the Highly Illogical Trip the Light Fantastic Powder.
I’ve never heard of a Trip the Light Fantastic Powder before this collection debuted. And I don’t know if it is exclusive to this collection. MAC describes them as having a “soft and creamy texture” and a “lightweight, sheer formula.” Sounds a lot like their Mineralized Skinfishes, right? The biggest differences that I can see are – (1) these powders aren’t domed (2) they aren’t the marketed as being baked with a fancy “77-mineral complex” and (3) they’re slightly more expensive ($34 v. $33).
Highly Illogical is a golden copper with fine glitter. There is some plum in there, but it still pulls golden. This is my current favorite if I want a subtle, “office appropriate” highlight. If you prefer a bolder highlighter, this does layer nicely but don’t expect it to be seen from space. It’s not nearly metallic enough for that.
Did you pick anything up from the MAC x Star Trek collection? What’s your idea of a perfect nerdy collaboration? Tell me in the comments!
