    PLEASE let Merrily be one of the blushes that sticks around for good! Love Thing, too!

    • Hi HeavenLeiBlu,

      I’ll hope so! I’m hoping all the ones I didn’t purchase (and maybe the one or two I adore) stick around, LOL.

    • Laney

      Agreed! Merrily is the only one I have so far, but I LOVE it!!! I had to be patient at the counter because my boyfriend’s buying me makeup this weekend, for my birthday!

  2. Lori

    Wow itll be uber nice to have some of these semi-perm, from what I understand the mes will rotate every few months so the 6 aren’t perm forever. I can’t wait to see what’s next!! LOL though I’ll grab a couple prob the brown duo, and the gold/green one.

    Electroflash has renewed my love for mes!!

  3. Miss QQ

    Woah. What a big collection. Please enlighten me what are the differences between Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15, Mineralize SPF 15 Foundation / Loose, Mineralize Skinfinish Natural and the New View duo. For what purpose is each of them?

    • Hi Miss QQ,

      Oh, yes, it’s a huge launch. Satinfinish is a liquid, and it has a dewy/glowy finish – I didn’t like it, personally, because it made me look oily rather than dewy, but I know others swear by it. Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is a matte, incredibly sheer foundation in baked form. The loose mineralize foundation is just that, loose powder. The New View duo combines the MSF Natural with a shimmer half for highlighting.

    “Thow shimmer shades of Mineralize Skinfinish will be permanent as well.” Are these the New View Duos?

  5. Valerie

    So is it going to be a repromote collection?

  6. Sandy

    So I already have Pleasantry and Love Thing from Sonic Chic. Hopefully Gentle is going to come out with this collection so I can get it. I’m passing on all the others though and I still don’t like MES!

  7. Pquanda

    Still HATE MES (played with my roomies odd couple yesterday, UGH) but am exciting to see some of the mineralize blushes are sticking around. I’m thinking dainty, pleasantry, nuance (I HOPE), and gleeful are definitely in. I was talking to my MA and she said dainty, nuance, and merrily are flying.. see a lot of posts/reviews for merrily.

  8. Tekoa

    *hugs the MES* Personally, I am loving the Mineralized Eyeshadow and am quite thrilled to see some new/repromotes joining the family.

    I’m also having a hard time picking a blush. Help!

  9. Aline

    yay! i didnt get a chance to pick up brightside/gallery gal when it originally was released so i will be snatching that one up.. and picking up a backup of illusionary/burning ambition as well..

    but werent the 3 MSF’s supposed to be released with this collection as well?

  10. lindsay

    wow!! can’t wait! anything in mind christine??

  11. Kit

    Wonder if these will contain talc. The only reason I have avoided the Mineralize product so far is that they contain talc, and it tends to irritate my cheeks and chin and nose.

  12. Christine,
    As always I am totally looking forward to your review and to see which of the mineralized shadows you think are dups. Thanks.
