mac mineralized skin finish

dupes/alternatives masterpost ✨

Hey loves, this masterpost was partially requested and I’m so excited.  I recommend to do your research before buying the dupe, some of the dupes are better than others. Some brands are repeated. Here is a dupe masterpost for MAC lipsticks. Here is a dupe masterpost for liquid lipsticks. Here is a spreadsheet of Coastal Scents eyeshadows to MAC eyeshadow dupes. Most of these dupes I found online so I do not take credit for any of those but some I researched myself. This is under read more because this list is very long. :) If you have any more dupes or questions, feel free to send them in.

These are amazing highlighters for brown skin! (Top to bottom)

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in Sundipped - This was probably the best purchase from this past summer. It is my favorite out of all the glow kits and in my opinion the most woc friendly. For $40 you get four highlighters! Which is amazing and they’re big in size! It is a great formula
  • Laura Mercier Face Illuminating Powder in Seduction - Such a beautiful bronze shade! Amazing on deep skin! Gives a beautiful glow without being over the top. You can intensify it with a little fixed plus. It is pricey but amazing quality. Retails for $44.
  • MAC Mineralized Skin Finish in Cheeky Bronze - Beautiful peachy bronze highlighter! Very pigmented on its own but can be intensified with fix plus. This product does has some fall out but it isn’t a deal breaker. Retails for $33.
  • MAC Mineralized Skin Finish in Gold Deposit - Gorgeous gold bronze highlight!  Very pigmented on its own but can be intensified with fix plus. This product also has some fall out but it isn’t a deal breaker. Retails for $33.

Some Loot from MAC A Fantasy of Flowers Collection!

I haven’t been so excited about a MAC collection for awhile. 

Not everything here comes from the collection; there were a few items included as gratis in the gift bag at the event (including Be Nice Mineralize Gloss which is such a pretty creamy coral peach in the tube, but sinks into every line there is on the surface of your lips).

The products I got are recommended pieces from the collection for sure.

Mineralize Skin Finish in Stereo Rose: (Swatches above compare it with 3 other pink-toned MSFs.) This legendary shimmery peach highlighter once commanded 3-digits on eBay. Check it out if you get a chance! It’s a gorgeous “blush-topper”, where you just add a warm sheen on top of your cheekbones.

Mineralize Blush in Petal Power: This is a rose-gold like Nars Orgasm, but a lot more fine-grained and with a warmer, redder undertone. Absolutely beautiful. DEFINITELY check this out.

Mineralize Eyeshadow in Great Beyond: There are a lot of beautiful 4-shade Mineralize shadows. But because I have similar shades to all the other warmer and more neutral tones, and this grey-purple toned shadow had shades I don’t own. The rest are beautiful, so decide based on what you need most in your collection. 

Snapdragon Lustre Lipstick: This shade is quite hyped at the moment, and why wouldn’t it be? It looks like the most gorgeous lavender pink in the tube. On the lips however, I would say it’s kinda “iffy” and not that flattering except for a few skintones (mostly very pale, cool/pink-based skins)

Dreaming Dahlia Lustre Lipstick: Ahhhh, now this creamy coral semi-sheer baby is the highlight out of all the lipsticks for me. There was another beautiful purple but I have lots of purples I already like more, so this was it. There’s a subtle shimmer but that’s not very obvious.

Star Quality Cremesheen Gloss: Beautiful beautiful salmon coral gloss. It does provide enough color to be worn on its own without liner or lipstick as a base, which isn’t always true of many of the MAC Lipglasses and Cremesheen glasses.

Lily-white Pigment: Bright ivory-gold. There are some gorgeous shades in the collection including a duochrome blue-pink, a violet (re-promote), a lime-green and this, the ivory gold. It’s not the same as Vanilla pigment. It’s not a translucent white with a gold shift. It’s exactly as it appears, and it’s much brighter and more dramatic than Vanilla on the skin.
