But it's pretty! Besides, I've been wanting to get one and I finally managed to get a brand new one for RM70! (from Beauty4Less) Not bad right? Right? Right?
Read on for the review and swatch.
For those of you who don't know what a M.A.C. Mineralized Skin Finish is, it's basically baked powder: "luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks, brows, anywhere on the body: provides an ultra-deluxe polish to the skin".
Unlike regular powders, mineral-infused water is used as part as the baking process. When the liquid slurry is formed, pigments are added and the mixture is carefully shaped and then baked for 24 hours. The water then evaporates and leaves this unique powder behind. -- Makeupforlife.netDon't be mistaken with M.A.C. Mineralized Skin Finish/Natural which is "a luxurious domed face powder with minerals, slowly baked to provide a dimensional yet natural-matte finish. Provides perfect low coverage. Use to set and fix foundation or as a touch-up throughout the day".
Mineralized Skin Finishes are all limited edition and can be quite the investment with some colors going for up to USD200! Unfortunately, cosmetics are hardly ever investments for me. More like liabilities. I have this urge to collect. Anyway, the color that I got, Light Flush, is from the N Color Collection.
Light Flush is a soft pastel pink with deep bronze veining. It gives my mid-toned skin a fine pinkish glow that is oh so sweet *bats lashes*. It's not very noticeable but it adds rosiness to liven up the bronze/coral blush shades that I usually go for. Just the right amount of pink so that I don't look like a China Doll. It's not so much a color but more of a sheen. The huge pan of powder can be used for a very very long time.
I'm really glad I made this purchase. This is not something that gives a va va voom effect but it's just something very satisfying although subtle. Kinda like my Clinique Lash Power Mascara. Sometimes the things that you love don't necessarily have to be perfectly wonderful. They just have to hit you in all the right places.
