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!

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.

I’d wear Rio as a blush. It seems to be a lovely balance of pink with a bit of warmth that would be beautiful at this time of year. Heck, I might even wear it for my daughter’s wedding which is in TWO WEEKS and 2 1/2 days!

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.

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™‚

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..:)

I would wear rio ike a blush… everyday!!!

lust on special occasions & adored on just the top of my cheeks!!!

I think the Rio MSF would look so wonderful on the cheek with beachy bronze eye make-up done, and a nudish lip like MAC Wholesome! πŸ™‚

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.

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.

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!

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.

wear rio on cheeks, girl about town lipstick, nars sheer glow foundation and light eye makeup using naked lunch and satin taupe ! love

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

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!

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.

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™‚

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.

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

Highlight for sure! Love them so much, a few darker ones are also great for blush, they are a must have in your beauty regimen every day! I get so excited just thinking about them!

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!

I’m dying to try mineralize skinfinish! I would wear them with a summery look with radiant skin. Probably bronze eyeshadow!

I would go for a natural glow with these Mineralize Skinfinishes. Sweep Lust to highlight and Soft and Gentle to brighten up the eyes. It’d give me the perfect excuse to go on a getaway and rock the summer glow look!

I would wear these with a matte neutral eye and matte orange lips which are so hot this summer! the skinfinishes would add just the right touch of shine πŸ™‚

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.

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™‚

These colors def screams out summer!! I would pair them with gold, neutral eyeshadows and bright summery lip colors! Thank u for this awesome giveaway!!

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.

I’ve would use them as a highlighter or blush depending on the color and pigmentation. I’ve been craving to use soft and gentle as a highlighter.

The way I would wear the particular products for a natural face is:
Base: Indianwood Paint Pot
Lid: Gold Deposit
Crease: Swiss Chocolate
Cheeks: Highlight with Gold Deposit

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 ^_^

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!

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.

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!

i would pair it up with dramatic smudged eyes .. with a pink lipgloss .. they will surely add glow to my cheek bones <3 <3 thank you for the awesome giveaway <3

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!

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! =]

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™‚

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™‚

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

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!!

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

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!

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.

i will wear it on my cheeks to give a hint of glow oh i love the shades i ll wear it with a peach lipsticka and bold eyeliner.

Mineral blushes work great with my skin…and these are beautiful colors. Neutral, smokier eye, nude lip for day and bold for evening…lots of lashes!

Among all of these, I’m probably lemming Gold Deposit most, so I’d wear it as a highlighter for a full face o’ makeup that includes warm brown eyeshadow and a bold lip… maybe red or orange!

i love these absolutely everywhere – as highlighter, blush, sometimes bronzer, eye shadow, even a bit on the shoulders or collarbones for an extra glow. thanks for a great giveaway!

I would put on a smokey eye, lots of mascara, with light foundation and nude lips. I’d wear Lust MSF as a blush and Soft & Gentle as highlighter. <3

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.

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.

Ooooo my goodness! I’ve been eyeing all of these since their release! I would wear Soft and Gentle as a daily highlight!! Ohh please please be on my side, drawing gods! πŸ˜‰

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!

Depending on the shade, I’d use these as a highlighter, blush, or bronzer (talking about Gold Deposit). I just love the shimmer in all of them!

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.

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!

I would wear one of the products (Rio) as a highlighter, a blush or as an eyeshadow. I love how these MSF’s are multi-use!

These are lovely! I would probably pair Lust with a dark (maybe grey?) smoky eye, black liner, and mascara. It’s a nice, natural pink so it won’t clash with the strong eye.

I’d do a mix of Rio and Gold Deposit along my cheeks up to the temples, and keep everything else very neutral and not too shimmery so the skin finishes would stand out πŸ™‚

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

It’d look great if a little bit is applied on the apple of the cheeks. This would give a natural glow. These blushes would also work great as highlighter as well as eyeshadow!

I’d use Soft n Gentle as my everyday highlight and use Gold Deposit to add some color to my face. I would use Adored as a gorgeous blush on my skintone!

i would use them to highlight my brow bone, cheek bones, cupids bow & my inner eye, with a light contour & a bright lip c:

I’ve been really into glowy highlights lately, especially down my nose and on my cupids bow, so these would be great to experiment with.

I would wear these as eyeshadow, highlighter, blush, bronzer and even dab a bit on top of some coral or orange lipstick to give the look of plump lips. I would even use these on my legs for some extra glow!

I would use Soft & Gentle as an Everyday highlight for my whole face to give me a look of radiance.

I would wear Adored with clean eyes, hoola bronzer, and Vegas Volt lipstick.
I love neutral eye- gentle cheeks- bold lip look for summer!

I’d wear Soft & Gentle to highlight my inner tear duct because it’s the perfect bronze color for me! It’s like a powder form of Benefit Sunbeam!

I would use these to create no-makeup, makeup looks. I have very fair skin (NC15) and love lightly adding warmth to it. I think any of these paired with a light peachy pink lip and brown mascara would look fresh and sophisticated.

I’ve always wanted to try Gold Deposit and Soft and Gentle MSFs for that really glowy, bronzed look over the top of more matte blushes. I bet it’ll look especially great in the tropics where I live!

dear Christine I would certainly wear gold deposit as a all over bronzer to me it has that ability and capability thanks for hearing me out.

I would wear the mineralize skin finish with brown eyeliner, neutral eyeshadows, and peachy nude lipstick ! perfect bronze makeup for summer πŸ™‚

Gold Deposit would look amazing with a dramatic smokey eye and a neutral lip. Which is what I’m wearing everyday this summer πŸ˜›

I would wear the Gold Lust on the highlights of my cheek bones with my little black dress and gold sparkly heels. Would look fabulous and bring out the gold!

I would wear it with a light-coverage foundation, a little bit of mascara and a subtle lipstick.
Your giveaways are always on top. Thanks for having this blog. I’m going through a rough time, and going to your blog always males me feel better!

Love from Denmark

I would love to use ‘Rio’ as a soft, highlighting blush! Or ‘Soft & Gentle’ as a warming, highlight to my cheekbones.

[P.S. I’m really sorry if this comment is a duplicate… I don’t *think* I have left a comment yet, but I couldn’t remember, so I just went with leaving one. Seemed like leaving two was better than leaving none!]

P.P.S ~ Sorry, one more thing! =) It looks like when this giveaway was posted, it was listed as ending on July 31st in the “Official Rules” section, like the other Tropical Taboo Giveaways, but the Rafflecopter counter seems to think there are [31] more days to enter… So I’m thinking it was coded as the giveaway ending in August! Just thought I would give you a heads up in case you either want to change the wording in the rules, or change the ending time on the rafflecopter! =p
