MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Swatches (Very picture heavy!)

I’ve got a tiny collection thanks to me selling most of them a couple of years ago. Back to collecting them again *sigh*

Mineralize skinfinishes (MSFs) are essentially baked powders. You can use them as a blush, highlighter, or bronzer. Each MSF is unique thanks to the veining and as such, you will end up getting a different result eg MSFs with heavy veining may have less of the base colour when applied.

So here’s Light Flush (N Collection), Petticoat (the re-released version from the Sheer Minerals collection) and Perfect Topping (Sugarsweet collection).

Light Flush – Soft pastel pink with deep bronze veining

I love using this as a blush. It kinda looks like MAC Pink Bronze pigment!

Petticoat – Pale rose with gold and amber veining

*Just* received this in the mail but I’m sure it’d make a pretty blush colour.

Perfect Topping – Pink/peach/lavendar melange

Aah, who can resist a pretty looking highlighter?

And of course, swatches:

Natural light

And flash
