You may have spotted a while back I treated myself to a much lusted after product, the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in lightscapade. 

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish powders are extremely finely milled powders with veining throughout. Lightscapade is a beige coloured product with purple veins across the surface of the product. These help to conceal any redness on the face.

The fact the powder is so finely milled means it is so easy to pick up with your makeup brush ready to use. I love this, and it seriously surprised me just how smooth the product is.

When used on the face the product leaves a gorgeous glow and works amazing as a highlighter (see pic above for swatch). I have been loving using it on the centre of my nose, tops of my cheeks, across my forehead and a small amount on my neck.

The product also seems to last really well; I can put it on in the morning before work and it will still be there when I finish work.

All I say is don't try using this to set your makeup. I decided to give this a go as the glow is subtle which at first did leave my skin with a lovely glow, but within an hour or so it became patchy leaving my skin looking uneven. However used correctly as a highlighter it is an amazing product.

The Mineralize Skinfinish comes in a posh looking container, with a dome in the lid meaning you can see the powder from first glance. It is made of plastic so perfect for popping in your daily makeup bag, whilst the dome means it will also look very pretty on your dressing table.

Overall I have been loving this product since purchase... When I first purchased the product I honestly wasn't sure what to expect; it is the first powder from MAC which I have tried. (I haven't even tried one of their blushes yet!) However it surpassed my expectations on first use leaving me extremely happy. I'd love to try some more powders from MAC, possibly a blusher.

Have you tried any of the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish's? What product should I be trying next from MAC?

  1. I have this! I only use it as a highlighter, If I used it to set my make-up I'd look ridiculously glowy! This product is so great for contouring and highlighting though <3

  4. I had a Mineralise Skinfinish some years ago but I've never repurchased it even though I loved it at the time and used it til I hit pan. I love the colours in Lightscapade and also the name! I'll look out for it in MAC.
