MAC Wonder Woman: Pink Power Mineralize Skinfinish

MAC PINK POWER MINERALIZE SKINFINISH ($35.00 for 0.70 oz.) is a super-mega-jumbo-sized tri-colored mineralize skinfinish. MAC describes the colors as peachy rose with pink shimmer, soft rosy bronze, and soft shell pink with fine shimmer.

The oversize mineralize skinfinish does allow for easy use of each color individually, and I could see mixing and matching, though they’re wearable on an individual level. The way I looked at these mineralize skinfinishes was they included a “highlighter” shade, “bronzing” shade, and “blushing” shade.

The “highlighting” shade, which I found was best used that way (more shimmer than color when applied), is a pale champagne beige with white-gold shimmer. The “bronzing” shade is a mid-tone orange-tinged brown, but it doesn’t feel orange-y (like Golden Lariat) with a subtle satin sheen. The “blushing” shade is a peached pink with a shimmer-sheen.

my thoughts on the formula: Mineralize Skinfinishes can be used for a variety of things–from blush to bronzer to highlighter. The way you use it depends on your skin tone, how pigmented the particular shade of mineralize skinfinish is, the texture, and what you want to use it for. These are baked products, so they can be used wet or dry without fear of ruining the product. The texture is soft, but the fineness of the shimmer depends on the individual shade. Stippling brushes like the 187 and 188 are ideal for applying mineralize skinfinishes.

Normally, mineralize skinfinishes retail for $28 (0.35 oz.), so this is double the size for $7 more. To put it simply, you’re paying $50/oz. rather than $80/oz. Whether you’ll ever use all whopping 0.70 oz. of it depends on you! It does feel huge, though, and the size makes it less convenient to tote around in your bag or makeup bag. I also think that for its gigantic-size, I would have loved to see a mirror included.

final thoughts: I thought this one actually worked well–I can see a variety of skin tones working this. Golden Lariat may pull too orange to be wearable for some, but Pink Power looks beautiful applied. It has enough warmth to work for my warmer-toned friends, but it’s not so warm that it turns orange, so it should be lovely on cooler skin tones, too.

For full-face photos, I used the “bronzing” shade to contour, the “blushing” shdae to blush, and then the “highlighting” shade to highlighter. In order to get these up as soon as possible, I did these these three at once (my cheeks just can’t take more than 5 or so back-to-back cheek swatches).

I like these shades a lot more that golden lariat but I still don’t know if I can handle the size. I find it is not totally necessary to buy

The individual blush and highlight swatches look beautiful. But the bronze shade looks a bit orange IMO. Anything that pulls orange looks way too harsh and horrible on me. It looks really nice on you though. I still see it pulling a little orange on you though too. I am really bummed out because I wanted to love this MSF. I knew I wouldn’t like the other one so this was my last MSF option. It will save me money but it looks so pretty, it’s HUGE, I am a WW fan, and I love MSFs. I guess I can get the other stuff on my list.

Thanks for getting these up so quickly Christine, we all appreciate you working so hard! 🙂
I think this MSF looks lovely, its the only thing I was planning on getting from this collection.

Oh btw, the Valiant Quad looks amazing on you! I am totally sold on that quad. Aren’t collection Quads usually a few dollars less than $40?

Christine, not sure if it’s just me but as soon as I saw the picture of this I thought of the mineralized blush duo “happy together” (with the exception of the darker one. None the less, it looks great on you!

I wish they made a smaller version of this at a lower price point and without the bronzer. Any bronzer makes me look like an Oompa-Loompa.

The pink parts of this are gorgeous though.

ohh now people are saying that they want things from this collection -_-. There were so many haters earlier..
lovee this msf<3 gonna get this and a lipstick 😀

I knew when you first posted photos that I’d be getting some stuff from Wonder Woman. I agree with Angel, there were so many haters before. Thanks for the swatches and the review Christine! I’ll get this once it’s available here 🙂 Can’t wait for March!

I wish I could learn how to apply msf, this looks amazing on you! And the side shot is really helpful.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your hard work and effort. I hope you treated yourself to a nice meal once you were done! 😀
One more thing, the value is 9/10 for this and 10/10 for the Golden Lariat, just thought that might be a typo or something?

I love this! This is the one & only product I definitely will be picking up from the WW collection. Question, how do you apply this? Do you swirl and apply all at once or one at a time? I’m so excited for this because it’s three different shades in one which only add to the value of being much larger for just a little more!

This MSF is gorgeous, but unfortunately, the oversized versions of this collection will make it very expensive in Mexico…a regular MSF is sold for about 33 dollars here, so if Wonder Woman’s are 35 in the US, I guess they will be sold for over 40 dollars here! Though the packaging and concept of this collection are fun, the prices are not!

I think i may really want this! Esp cause it would be my first MSF and i’ve loved the look of the texture on previous ones. Does this still seem like an MSF? Because if it doesnt, i think i may want MAC’s Peachykeen blush instead! whatttt to do?

i tried this one last night, but then broke out where the highligher went, not sure what to do, i also have light to medium skin and am wondering if the bronzer will be too dark, also is this mineralize, is it safe for sensitive skin?

It just depends on what ingredients you get irritated from – it is hard for me to say if it will or won’t work for your skin.

hi christine! first off i just wanted to let you know that I am very grateful for all of the time and effort you put into this incredible blog, so thank you(:
I am NC20 ish or lighter (not for sure) and I went to a Macys MAC counter because that was the only place I could find this. so I picked it right up and purchased it. The bronzer is not pigmented at all so i wiped a layer off thinking that would do the trick (it has worked for me in the past). But then I applied it and after putting my brush back in for the second time, it wasnt pigmented any more. Do you think that its because I put it on after I moisturized my face and didnt apply foundation? or did I get a bad one? do i need a new brush? Thank you for your time! Isabella

Hi Christine,

I have almost the same skin tone as you, but do you think pink power or golden lariat is better for your skin tone? And isnt the bronzing shade way to orange to use as a bronzer? Its going to be my first MAC product en the ww collection wil be available in stores on March 5th 9 ( in Holland). i’m so excited! thnx and excuse me for my english
