MAC Tropical Taboo Collection’s Mineralize Skinfinishes ($30.00 for 0.24 oz.) come in five shades: Adored, Gold Deposit (permanent), Lust, Rio, and Soft & Gentle (permanent). Except for Gold Deposit, the Mineralize Skinfinishes are on the lighter end of the spectrum, so for the majority of complexions, they’ll work more as highlighters than blushers or bronzers. The textures of all five were less powdery than the blushes from this collection. Gold Deposit was the only one that had a slightly sparkly/less smooth texture. In my experience, MAC’s Mineralize cheek products don’t last as long as their regular powder blushes do. I’ve only tested one of the five, and I’m in the process of testing Lust and Rio at this very moment and will update accordingly. I expect to test the remaining two (which are permanent) tomorrow. Overall, I think if you normally love and use Mineralize Skinfinishes as highlighters, one of the new shades is worth checking out, but the reality is they’re very similar to each other – each one slightly darker from Adored to Lust to Rio (Rio being the “darkest”).
