I would use these on myself and on clients to give them that special, beautiful glow! As a highlighter, blusher, bronzer, and even eyeshadow to make them and myself shine!

Evalyn W Avatar

I’m loving the colors. I’m looking for my wedding day look and I think one of these, paired with a subtle smokey eye, might work really well.

Linda Avatar

With Gold Deposit, I’d wear it like a shimmery bronzer. I think Soft & Gentle would look great when dusted on the tops of my shoulders if I was wearing a strapless top! Naturally, all of them would look gorgeous as a shimmery highlighter on the cheekbones.

Miranda C Avatar

I think for most of these I would use them as a blush/highlight, but with gold deposit it’d have to be more of a bronzer for me πŸ™‚

sweta Avatar

Hi Christine, thanks for the giveaway..I love all of them..but Rio is my favorite as it would be most suited for my tan complexion…I would apply the darker shade on my cheekbone with the pink on the apple of my cheeks and then blend both for a nice dimensional look..:)

DΓ©sanne Avatar

Soft and Gentle as a highlighter ofcourse, and i think Lust would look beautiful as a cheek colour, because i’am very pale. I think you can make beautiful natural looks with these Mineralize Skinfinishes.

Sarah Avatar

I’d definitely wear Adored and Soft & Gentle as a highlight. Lust and Rio would make beautiful blush colors, and Gold Deposit seems like it would be beautiful on the decollete.

Mary Ellen Avatar

I would highlight the top of my cheekbones, tip of nose, chin, and cupids bow with a light hand..and occasionally using the MSF for all over washes of color on the lids..I sometimes apply the MSF’s on top of my regular every day blushes to add an extra oomph!

Laura Avatar

I’d wear Lust on the cheeks to bring a glow to a summery look, with light neutral eyeshadow, black mascara, tinted moisturiser and a glossy coral or warm pink lip πŸ™‚ I might also add a teal eyeliner to the lower lash line for a pop of colour.

Brittany Avatar

I’ve always wanted to try soft and gentle! I would wear it as a daily highlight! I feel like it would compliment my olive skin

Bree Avatar

I would wear gold deposit with a mono chrome bronze look. I would wear a gold smokey eye, bronzer, gold deposit to high light, and a bronze tinted lip gloss!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Anya Avatar

I’m a temptalia fan here in Singapore! I’d love to get a hold of those Mac highlighters as it’s just too expensive in this part of the world! And I am a sucker for highlighters! Rio just looks so gorgeous.

Clio Avatar

There are enough shades in this collection to go with any look any time, but I’ll have to say I’d wear them with a fresh, smoothly foundation-ed base so the colours and shimmer really pop! πŸ™‚

Casey Avatar

MSF’s are my absolute favorite MAC product. They make amazing blushes and highlighters. I love pairing these with a neutral look. They give my skin the perfect glow.

Amy Avatar

I would wear this along my cheek bones to give a very beautiful summer glow and I would wear this over my mac dainty blush to give a sweeter look and I would wear some of these as eyeshadows

Olivia Davidson Avatar

I’d use Soft & Gentle as a high liter, Gold Deposit as a bronzes, and the others for all over check and face colors! Love these!

Shayna Avatar

First of all, I would probably lay them all on my desk and just stare at them for a few hours. Then, I’d use Gold deposit now since it’s summer and rio. Adored and Lust look gorgeous as well.

C.G. Avatar

I’d love to try these on my cheeks; always looking out for that perfect highlighter and blush. These would add a lovely perk-me-up glow πŸ™‚

Zainub Avatar

I would use soft and gentle as a highlighter by my cheek (just above the cheek bone) and brown bone area, pair it with a soft eye but a lot of mascara and a coral or red lip.

Rajah Zapata Avatar

Depends on the mineralized skin finish how I would wear it but I have several ways I would wear them. I’m a black so my skins of course would be more intuned for highlighting with these colors. So basically I would wear them as highlights on the eyes, cheeks, or cheek bone. Make me look a little glossy and fresh ^_^

Ingrid Hughes Avatar

I would love to wear Adored as a highlight, now in the summer paired with Rio as a blush when I want to use my coral and orange lipsticks and I would pair Soft and Gentle as a highlighter with Lust as a blush when I’m wearing cooler toned colours and lipstick. Gold Deposit would be perfect for a summer tan!

Gabriele Avatar

I’d wear Soft & Gentle day and night! It’s adorable! =)
During the day, I would wear it only above the apples of my cheeks, right above the blush.
In the evening, I would wear it nearly everywhere! =D But especially on my temples, near the outter corner of the eyes and above my upper lip.

Elizabeth Avatar

I am in the military so I can never do anything crazy with my makeup at work..but I would def use these as a highlighter or a pretty blush to set myself apart from the boys!

T Avatar

Soft & Gentle is nice because you could use it as a highlight, but also for those of us who are on the paler side, it could possibly work as an all over glowy finish to the skin!

Madison Avatar

I would wear Soft & Gentle as a cheek highlight, inner corner highlight, and even just all over the lid as a brightening eyeshadow part of any everyday look! =]

Anka Trinka Avatar

soft & gentle is known for beeing a good highlighter, so i would love to try it out. but i imagine adored would look great too πŸ™‚

svea Avatar

I would wear these pretty shimmery blushes just over my bronzer and a matte peach blush, mascara, and lip balm. For me, i think it is a great look for summer, when I just want to look a bit tan and keep my makeup simple, to prevent any smearing or flaking when I sweat πŸ™‚

Elyssa Meco Avatar

I’d love to try one of theseeee (i already have soft and gentle) but the rest are so beautiful.. I’d love to win atleast one of theseeeeeeeeeeeeeee OMG <3

Cindy Babbutt Avatar

Hi Christine. I am so excited about this giveaway. All of this was sold out before I even had a chance to get it here. I love the looks of Rio the most, but they all look gorgeous. Thank you, what a great giveaway!!

Fashionista Avatar

Thanks Christine for this incredible giveaway!
I participate =)
I’m from France,hope I can?
I so want to try Lust,it’s beautiful!!!

julieta Avatar

I would wear the MSF soft & gentle as a highliter because i loove that shade and it’s subtle enough not to make me look greasy, which is good cause it’s super hot where i live!

Chelsea Avatar

I would wear Soft and Gentle to highlight my cheeks after I apply my foundation and a little bronzer. I’d also use it on my eyes for a slightly shimmery but neutral look, paired with black liner that is slightly winged out.

Amy Avatar

These should work well as blushes on my fair complexion – most for every day, Gold Deposit for special occasions when a bit of golden sparkle is in order.

Lisa Avatar

This is a good roundup of shades. Rio makes a good blush/bronzer… Adored and Soft N Gentle are good highlighters. Gold Deposit, I’d probably use for eyeshadow.

Megan Avatar

I can think of so many ways to wear these- but probably as a combination highlight/blush, since my naturally reddish face doesn’t need a LOT of pigmented blush. I might even use some as eyeshadow on a natural-faced day!

Lissa Oliva Avatar

They are perfect for my kit! I would use them mostly as as highlighters for all skin tones, but also as shadow and blush. They’re perfect for enhancing muted colors or flat textures.

khadija Avatar

I know gold deposit would go spectacularly with my complexion. I’d use it on the apples of my cheek, A bronze eyeshadow, black eyeliner, and coral lips…. Da Bomb!
Adored and soft&gentle would be paired with a soft pink look, the barbie girl type and nude lips….
Thanks Ms. Temptalia!

Ammi Avatar

I can’t choose!! I love them all!!
I think of warm, healthy cheeks when I wear them.
Paired with neutral eyes, with long and natural lashes <3
