Sheer Minerals (October 15th, 2008)

(This image is not the promotional image for the launch.)

A performance in the nude. Good lighting is important, but defiant, flawless sheen can’t be faked. Sheer, loose mineral powder in microfine blends do more for skin than any productions designer ever could. Blends to manipulate light softly to vanquish imperfections, keep the scene alive, the action electrifying.

    Definitely will be glad to have Petticoat. I like it a lot. I wanna give So Ceylon a chance, too. I won’t have to rush for Soft and Gentle.

  4. Reese

    i can’t wait for october now! LOL!
    do you think petticoat will show up well on nc30?
    because i have light flush MSF and its not as bold as i would like it to be…but its pretty in the pot! hehe

    Mineralize Sheersheen Powder / Loose (Limited)

    Sheerbronze Soft bronze with gold pearlized pigments (I just hope it isn’t too dark for me)

    Lucent Faded mid-tone pink with pink and white pearlized pigments (sounds tooooo fab)

    Silver Aura Muted pinky beige with silver shimmer (yes yes yes yes I am sooo happy to try this)

    • Tanya from Oz

      hi Tanya! my names Tanya too (but I think i’ll change it so we don’t get mixed up lol!)
      i’m from australia and we have SUCH cool names, doncha think?

    • Hi Tanya,

      I’m with you on the sheersheen powder! I’m always into those kinds of products!

  6. Amanda

    I’m getting Petticoat for sure, and I’m thinking of Soft and Gentle as well…but I might just end up with all three! I only have one MSF (New Vegas) and I love it so much I might not be able to stop myself from getting the entire lot of these MSFs, haha!

  7. Lish

    wow MAC has a very busy fall lined up huh…im interested in this product I cant wait to purchase it.

  8. All the MSFs and sheersheen powders will be mine!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Do you think Petticoat is necessary if I have both Light Flush and Northern Light? I’d hate to get it just because it’s Petticoat if I have something similar already. Ya know? :)

  10. Sandy

    oooh, i want Petticoat and one of those mineralized sheersheen powders. They sound yummy!

  11. Becky

    So are the MSFS LE? I’m wondering about the sheertone powders :X

  12. Fiona

    Ooh, can’t wait for the MSFs! Would Petticoat be a good highlighter for NC30? Or would Soft & Gentle be a better choice?

    • Hi Fiona,

      Hm, highlighter? Petticoat is pinkish, so I think you might find it gives you some color, not just highlighting (from what I remember). But it might be so subtle it’d still work as a highlighter.

  13. So excited for So Ceylon!!!!!!!!!! Damnit, where’s Metal Rock?!?!
