MAC Fall Colour: Porcelain Pink Mineralize Skinfinish

MAC Porcelain Pink Mineralize Skinfinish ($28.00 for 0.35 oz.*) is described as a “soft pinky coral with gold veining.” It is limited edition, but it has previously launched. It is part of the MAC Fall Colour Collection, which debuts in North America on September 29th, 2011 and rolls out internationally in October. Mineralize Skinfinishes are more akin to highlighters than anything else, but depending on the shade of the product and your skin tone, it may be used as a bronzer, blush, or highlighter. Though Porcelain Pink does have a touch of color, it looks like a highlighter on me.

It’s a coral-pink base color with a peachy-gold shimmer and sheen. I find it powdery and the shimmer to be a little on the larger side (especially compared to Lightscapade). It looks more noticeable on the skin, though honestly it looks nearly the same as Lightscapade does on my skin. Porcelain Pink has more obvious shimmer and consequently, it appears to reflect more light. I don’t find that the mineralize blushes or skinfinishes wear all day; I usually notice some fading around six hours (and I have normal-to-dry skin). On someone with much paler skin, I could see them extracting a bit more color out of this product.

Note: I am using Porcelain Pink which launched a couple of years ago (manufacturing date was in 2009), so while I anticipate the color should be the same (as much as it can, given the nature of veining of this product that can create slight color variation), there is possibility that the powder is more refined/softer. A lot of the more recent mineralize skinfinishes have seemed more finely milled, but I can’t say for sure since the one I have is older.

I can never see the difference with MSFs on me… or you. I’m NC40, so I’m darker than you, but I feel they all look the same when you put it on. 🙁 Its so sad. They’re all so pretty.

This looks lovelier than I expected! Though I’m not sure if I’ll actually get it, only if some color shows up on my skin, I’d be ~ NC05-10 so it **might**..

The glow looks awesome on your cheeks, and btw I always love the beauty mark on your nose!

is there any other products from mac that you find you get more milia from becaue i use mostly noncodemgenic products but i do have mac msf too..
* i have lots of bad milia and it wont go away 🙁

For me, it was their mineralize products. I used to use the MSF Natural everyday and always had milia along my cheeks. When I stopped… it went away after a couple of weeks. If I wear too many mineralize blushes/skinfinishes (e.g. over a week or two), I’ll have issues again.

Porceain Pink was my first Mineralize Skinfinish and I love it!! I have very fair skin (NW15/20) so I even use it as a blush sometimes. Adore this product.

just wanted to comment for the fair skinned gals…I swatched these today and Lightscapade is kinda white-ish champagne shimmer/sheen and porcelain pink is def pink in comparison. I quite pale so there is a noticeable difference on my skin.

I was lucky to get this at a CCO in Ohio for just $19. It’s probably the one that came out in 2009 but it looks the same to me! I bought this to use as a blush/highlighter because I have very fair skin in the fall/winter when I don’t tan. It’s a gorgeous color. (:
