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. Nuanced had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and lightly dusty consistency that was incredibly easy to blend out on the skin. I was surprised the texture didn’t emphasize pores, but it applied in such a way that it gave a good sheen instead. On me, the color started to break down after seven hours of wear.

Argh, I can’t decide between this and Otherearthly! I’m quite fair (think NC15), so I think Otherearthly would maaaayyyybe be the better choice, but then I really do not like the pattern on Otherearthly! What to do, what to do…

I like this one quite a bit. I have a couple of the dupes though. There is a slight difference between them. Since I’m a highlighter junkie, they go into consideration.
Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates! 🙂

This looks beautiful on you Christine! So pretty. ?

What would be a lighter equivalent for those of us who are ‘peely-wally’ (Scottish for extremely pale and/or looking unwell, not that I’m unwell at all)? I’ve always liked that term. ?

I love this! I love the msf/mineralize blush formula. One of the few that don’t look too powdery on me, maybe because of the way they reflect light. I will definitely be checking out this collection, hopefully in store.

On you, it looks like a beautiful highlighting-blush with a soft warmth. Very fresh and springy! On me, it may look more of a straight-up highlighter, I’m not sure? So, I will probably try to get OtherEarthly, just because it has such an unusual glow.

It might blend more into your skin tone than mine; it definitely still adds color on me! I bet if you concentrated a little more towards the darker sections that it would give you more color.

This might be too warm for me, so something to swatch St the counter. Looks lovely on you, Christine.

P.S. the Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson comparator is $65 (vs. $32).
