MAC Naturally: Redhead Mineralize Skinfinish

MAC Redhead Mineralize Skinfinish ($28.00 for 0.32 oz.) is described as a “gold to salon pink degrade,” and it’s a limited edition blush/highlighter from MAC’s upcoming Naturally collection. It is a repromote, though, so if you’re an avid mineralize skinfinish collector, you should check your stash first. Like Blonde, there are four (mostly) distinct stripes of color: gilded champagne beige, deepened champagne beige, peachy champagne, and rosy bronze.

When mixed together, the resulting hue is a lightened champagne beige with warm undertones and a nearly metallic finish. It is similar to MAC Belightful. On my skin tone, it adds a light warmth but mostly a shimmer/sheen without too much color. I expect on fairer skin tones, this could work as a very subtle bronzer with a heavy sheen.

The texture of the powder is soft and smooth, but the finish does tend to accentuate pores, skin imperfections, and the skin’s natural texture, so for those who are concerned about pore size, this may not be the right product for you. It’s not the product I’d reach for to look my very, very best in photos, but the effect is still pretty that it might be worth the sacrifice in the appearance of your skin from time to time! When I tested out Redhead for wear, it wore for around six hours before noticeably fading on my normal-to-dry skin.

I have one from the original release and find it looks very similar to By Candlelight on me as well. That might be another people will want to check their stash for if they don’t like similar products. They’re not exactly the same, but close enough that I honestly wish I hadn’t bought By Candlelight.

I’m not a big fan of MSFs since I don’t really know how to use it. I got it before since I was trying different MAC stuffs. I used it as a powdered foundation just to use the whole thing up! LOL!

I actually find myself drawn to this. I *need* light and lightly pigmented blushes as my skills haven’t caught up in that category yet. Otherwise I end up like Bozo the clown.

I’m really not interested in MSFs, because the only places I like shiny and glittery is on my lips and on my eyes, but that lipstick *oh my goodness* now that looks like a nude that I really need!

I know that resisting MSFs is impossible for me. Even if I have something slightly similar, I convince myself that I can see a difference and I guess I just really like sparkly things lol. I have to be extra vigilant with my skincare to look my best when wearing them though.

Hi Christine, I cant help I seem to like these MSF. How do you think do Blonde and Redhead compare to Bobbi Browns Shimmer Bricks? Nectar seems to look similar to Redhead and in a way to Blonde, too.
