MAC Nuanced Mineralize Skinfinish ($34.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a medium peach with warm, rosy undertones and a metallic sheen. There seemed to be slight, larger sparkles throughout the powder, though it did not read glittery to me, particularly on my cheeks once blended out. The compact was comprised of peachy-gold, peach, soft copper, and darker peach, and I think, at best, you might be able to lean toward a more golden effect if one concentrated on the top half or more coppery, rusty by concentrating on the lower half. The colors were rather harmonious, all warm-toned, and closer together.
The powder as a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that was fairly finely-milled and applied evenly to my skin. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, but I felt like the texture made it easier to apply more or less depending on pressure and tool. It had a noticeable shine but wasn't metallic enough that it emphasized my skin's natural texture. On me, the highlighter (well, highlighting blush on my skin tone!) wore well for eight hours before fading slightly.
