MAC Scene to Be Seen Mineralize Skinfinish

MAC Scene to Be Seen Mineralize Skinfinish ($33.00 for 0.26 oz.) is a two-in-one product that features a section that’s described as a “brick rose with gold reflects” and a larger area described as a “mauve with pink sheen.” I’m reviewing each shade individually as well as when mixed, so there are three sets of swatches and corresponding photos. To make sure it doesn’t get too confusing, each Mineralize Skinfinish will be posted separately.  All three shades lasted the same on me — just under seven hours before there was noticeable fading.  The inner section of the product wasn’t quite as pigmented as the outer shade, but when everything is swirled together, the outer shade makes up for whatever pigmentation is lacking from the inner portion.  Aside from below average wear time, whether the shades were worn separately or together, the finish emphasized pores.

Scene to Be Seen (Inner) is a warm, reddish plum with a frosted finish. It had good color payoff, but the texture was a little chunky. It did somewhat emphasize pores when applied to the cheeks due to the more metallic sheen. Tom Ford Beauty Savage (P, $55.00) is redder. NARS Lovejoy (P, $29.00) is similar but smoother. MAC Small Vanity (LE, $21.00) is more muted. Illamasqua Allure (P, $26.00) is brighter, redder. bareMinerals The Indecent Proposal (P, $22.00) is more plum-hued. See comparison swatches.

Scene to Be Seen (Outer) is a subtly, warm-toned plum with a frosted, metallic sheen. It had so-so color payoff, was slightly powder, and did emphasize pores. MAC Lavish Living (LE, $25.00) is cooler-toned. theBalm Cabana Boy (P, $21.00) is less warm-toned. Chanel Plum Attraction (LE, $43.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Scene to Be Seen is a warm, coppery-plum with a frosted, metallic sheen. The inner shade seemed to overwhelm the outer shade when swirled together. It had good pigmentation, but it did emphasize pores. MAC Small Vanity (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. bareMinerals The Indecent Proposal (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches.
