The four shades unite to create a dark, chocolaty brown with subtle, warm red undertones and a satin finish. By Terry Savannah Love #6 (LE, ) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Chanel Duo N. 01 (Bottom) (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Swiss Chocolate (P, $22.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). NARS Melina (Contour) (P, ) is darker (90% similar).

The Mineralize Skinfinish formula is described as a “velvety soft” face powder with a “radiant finish” that can be used to “add highlights to the high points of the face.” The Mineralize Skinfinish Collection for spring features five new, limited edition shades — the collection debuts on March 31st online. Naturally Enhanced had semi-opaque color payoff–one of the less pigmented shades in the range–with a noticeably drier, loose texture that was almost sandy, though much less gritty. It was difficult to apply the color evenly, as it didn’t seem to adhere as well to bare skin. I was really bummed that the texture of this was significantly drier and less usable compared to the other four shades in the collection, particularly because it’s rarer to find a darker, less metallic hue in the Mineralize Skinfinish range to begin with. It lasted for seven hours before fading.
