MAC Light Year Mineralize Skinfinish

MAC Light Year Mineralize Skinfinish ($29.00 for 0.24 oz.) is described as a “peachy pink with gold shimmer.” It’s a light-medium peach with hints of pink and a golden shimmer-sheen. There is light peach, light-medium yellow-toned pink, and bronze. On my skin, it looks more peach, but in the pan, it seems more peach-pink. I would expect those with pinker undertones to see more peach-pink coloring (I have warmer undertones). Tom Ford Lovelust is darker, more coral. Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess is very similar.   Mine did have a peach haze over the bronze vein, which didn’t go away with a quick swipe, so it seems like the peach color ended up slightly layered over the rest of the product. I don’t think it really affects the color, since each pan is a swirl of various colors, some with larger veins than others.

Light Year seemed to embody the characteristics that I see others rave about when it comes to Mineralize Skinfinishes. It has that glowy effect that’s just a little obvious but not over-the-top and bordering on disco-ball territory. It didn’t emphasize my pores too much (just minutely), and it was very blendable.  This is a lighter shade, so it’s going to be more like a highlighting blush on light to medium skin tones, and then more of a highlighter on medium to dark skin tones.

The texture is slightly powdery, though very soft, so I liked applying it with a stippling brush like the 187 so I could still get some color but not end up with a powdery finish.  (And of course, as with anything powdery, a spritz of water, or Fix+ if you’re a fan, will take down some powderiness.)  When I tested out the wear of this, I put it on at 6AM this morning, and it’s now after 1PM–it’s slightly faded but no separation after seven hours.
