Satin Shimmer

MAC Satin Shimmer Mineralize Skinfinish ($33.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a light-medium, golden brown with warmer, yellow undertones and a soft, golden shimmer. As I buffed and blended the powder on my skin, it appeared more luminous and almost metallic, which seemed emphasize my skin’s natural texture slightly.

The powder was smooth to the touch but had larger shimmer particles, which I could feel to a small degree, but the powder still applied evenly and blended out nicely without much effort. It had good pigmentation that built up to full coverage with two layers. On my normal-to-dry skin, the color stayed on well for eight hours before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.35 oz. - $97.14 Per Ounce

Per the brand, the formula is supposed to "provide radiance" that has a "velvety soft" texture and "sheer coverage." (This description is as of 12/9/2017.) The powders vary a lot from shade to shade; some are glittery and others are pearly or metallic, while the pigmentation can be medium and buildable to fairly opaque in one go. They tend to wear between six and eight hours on me.

Colour Pop Noodle Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that did not build up much beyond that, even with three or more layers. The powder had a very powdery consistency, though it seemed finely-milled to the touch, and this resulted in the product sheering out whenever I tried to blend it on the skin. It just barely showed up on me with three layers (which is what is shown in the face photo!). The color blended out without too much work and lasted for six hours on me.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.21 oz. - $38.10 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to go on "smoothly" and have a "natural and healthy flush" that has "long wear" and "can be layered to your desired intensity." It is a lightly to moderately powdery powder blush with semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff. The consistency has a drier, thinner feel and though it feels silky to the touch, I found it the type of powder blush can be tricky to blend out evenly on the skin, depending on one's skin type or base preferences. The drier the skin/base, the better the formula would blend, but any natural oils or slip caused the blush to go on unevenly and was difficult to blend out. The wear was between seven and eight hours on me on average.

MAC Golden Shine Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($46.00 for 0.07 oz.) contains warm-toned neutrals to the tune of beige, copper, rosy copper, and brown. They can come together and create a nice, cohesive look (assuming one likes a lot of shimmer), but they need to be used with a dampened brush to apply well.
