MAC Mineralize Collection

The mania for mineral-rich makeup-foundation, powders, blush, eye shadows — is ever on the ascendant. Minerals will glorify and galvanize MAC’s latest mineral earth-offerings, and showcase our permanent Mineralize collections. The Artists have only but to ask: We are delighted to bring back our best-selling Mineralize Eye Shadow and Mineralize Blush at their request: three eye shadows from A Muse, three from Antiquitease, and six blush shades from Sonic Chic. Two shimmer shades of Mineralize Skinfinish will be permanent as well. In addition, brushes that are the most effective with Mineralize products will prove indescribably indispensable. Now available together in one permanent collection.

  1. Lisa

    wow these look great, thanks so much!
    How come there seems to be 3 pictures of mineralized skinfinishes but you only have 2 listed? Will there be 3 released?

  2. Brooke

    so no petticoat or so ceylon?

  3. Tanya

    are these gonna be permanent or limited edition?

  4. I think some of those are the eyeshadows, according to the names – three are duos and three are just single colour.

    This looks very interesting. I haven’t experimented much with MAC’s mineral products, with the exception of the me/s. I’ll definitely be checking this out, and swatching like crazy.

  5. MSF’S!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I DIE!!!!

  6. Virginia

    Aww, I was so sure they’d come up with Pleasantry again :( …maybe I’ll check out Gleeful now, since they also call it a “blue pink”

  7. Reesa

    I love, love, love the MSF Natural. I reach for it almost everyday. I think I’ll get another with this release and also try the SatinFinish and Loose Foundation. I’m also interested in the Skin Finishes…oh darn, I’ll just try a little of it all! LOL!

  8. Reesa

    I just noticed…it looks like they’ve changed up the colors/names of the MSF Natural. hmmm…

  9. Vee

    I’m surprised they’re re-releasing the mineralize blushes already!

    Wait, no. No I’m not.

  10. pquanda

    SO surprised that nuance and pleasantry didn’t make it. That’s craZy! Also, what are the pots with the black cap listed with the 182? The only thing that could be is Mineralize loose, but they come in the black pod!

  11. Tekoa

    WHY am I looking at a nipple? A shirt free guy is one thing, but the man-nipple is kinda just…floating there.

  12. Finally my chance to get the 109 brush!! Our counter doesn’t stock it! :D:D:D

  13. Ariana

    These will be the end of me… I’m already so obsessed with all the mineralized products out there, I can’t believe all these new releases!!!! OMG!

  14. Wow. They look so awesome all together on that stand. Can’t wait!

  15. LocaLoli

    Very nice

    Hey Christine-
    This collection makes me soooo excited for October. I’m currently using the Mineralized Loose Foundation and I absolutely love it. However, I think I experienced an allergic reaction to the Mineralized SkinFinish Duo. =(, I’m thinking it could possibly be the Talc? Do you know where I can find a list of ingredients for the Mineralized Blushes? Thanks!

  17. Kristine

    Now I’m so glad I bought my Merrily blush when it came out rather than waiting to see if it made this list 😀

  18. Which is from sheer minerals, which is from mineralize line?
    Also there is 3 Msf’s shown, but in descriptions there is only 3?!

  19. Poonam

    ooooohhhhhh im sooo sad, so ceylon isnt in the collection. mines finished now after 3 years and I miss it sooo much

  20. Amelia

    Do they contain talc????

  21. ramona

    Do you know the ingredients of the mineral makeups or blush? Do you know if they contain bismuth oxychloride, cornstarch talc, or many artifical ingredients besides the minerals??? My skin is highly sensitve and breaks out like crazy with the wrong stuff and does not react when I do not wear makeup… I broke out w/bare esentuals and am looking for something that works and looks great and love mac so hope it will do.
    Thanks for any info!

  22. Kristal

    The Mineralized Skin Finish Natural powder irritated my skin like crazy! Hopefully they will allow me to return this product for either a refund or replacement. I love the way it looked on my skin till it started irritating and breaking out. I do have the Mineralized Satinfinish foundation and I highly recommend that!
