MAC Faintly Fabulous Mineralize Skinfinish ($32.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a mix of buttery yellow, peachy beige, muted medium orange, and light-medium warm pink. Together, they come together and create a muted, light-medium peachy-orange with warm, yellowy undertones and a frosted sheen. Tom Ford Beauty Warm (Winter 2016) Highlighter (LE, $60.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Moonlight (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Smashbox Gilded Rose (LE, $39.00) is cooler (90% similar).

The Mineralize Skinfinish formula is described as a “velvety soft” face powder with a “radiant finish” that can be used to “add highlights to the high points of the face.” The Mineralize Skinfinish Collection for spring features five new, limited edition shades — the collection debuts on March 31st online. Faintly Fabulous had good color payoff with a soft, smooth, and lightly dusty texture that was easy to apply to the skin and blend out. The finish was luminous without being metallic or too sparkly on the skin, so I didn’t have any issues with the powder emphasizing the skin’s natural texture or the look of pores. The color started to fade after seven and a half hours on me.

Your whole look with this release is so soft and pretty Christine. I’m really surprised by it honestly. I have need for subtle, natural makeup for many of my daytime obligations and will be giving this whole collection a thorough going over! Thanks for posting so much of it.

The one upside is that you can direct your brush to get a lighter/darker/warmer/cooler mix if you go heavy on say, two or three shades, than all four. I think you can get more consistent color with them already swirled, though.

Faintly Fabulous looks so beautifully radiant on you! But light orange-peach on my cheeks? Not so sure…although I DO wear Arena eye-shadow on my lids, Reel Sexy and Ravishing lipsticks, so maybe.

Hmm, I was hoping that it would be a tad less warm-toned. The pink on its own is nice but not enough to warrant me getting this.

Oh well, at least I’m happy with the Mineralize Skinfinishes and Mineralize Blushes I already have. I’m just glad that the Blonde Mineralize Skinfinish is so big because I use it so much! Maybe I should start looking for a backup though, just in case, because so far I’ve not come across anything that similar to it. Time to check the dupes! ?

I know! I’ve made a noticeable dent in it but there’s still tonnes left.

I reorganised my collection just this week and have rediscovered some old favourite blushes, so hopefully I won’t be reaching for the Blonde MSF so often! I also found my old Prescriptives Illuminator- man I love that thing and there’s no way to replace it. Why are the best ones LE or discontinued? MAC Moon River Mineralize Blush is another example. Why?! LOL! ?
