I didn't know MAC mineralize skin finish was so purdy.
the vast majority of MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes are LE and the only
shades currently available to purchase off the UK MAC site are Soft and
Gentle (Gilded Peach Bronze) and Gold Deposit (Soft Reflective
Golden-Bronze). It's not uncommon for the popular shades to easily sell
for over £50 and beyond on Ebay.
not an avid collector of MSFs. I'm wary that some look incredibly
similar to one another when swatched and so I try and only purchases
ones that give different finishes. These are the MSFs that I currently
own. I used to own Gold Spill and Shimpagne too but I swapped them away.

I have to say that the MSFs I purchased from the Colour Craft collection
last year are much smoother in texture than some of the the others,
they're beautiful. I hope that any future releases have the same formula
as they apply like a dream.
tend to use my MAC 187 brush the most to apply them, it allows me to
pick up the right amount of product and doesn't congregate on my face
in a shimmery/glowy mess. Depending on the shade I'm using, I'll
lightly swipe the 187 across the pan, gently brushing it against my
upper cheeks, forehead, down the centre of my nose and chin. I'll then
softly work it into my skin.
careful not to pick up too much product to begin with or you may be in
danger of looking like a Christmas bauble - especially if the MSF in
question has visible glitter in it. The aim of this product is to to
achieve a gorgeous, yet natural looking glow that doesn't look out of
place. I also reach for my MAC 131 brush if I want to concentrate
application on the top of my blush along my (invisible) cheekbones or my
MAC 182 kabuki brush if If fancy a bit of buffing action.
In case you've been lying under a rock, the much coveted fave Stereo Rose and Petticoat are to be re-promoted in the MAC In the Groove collection
due for release in the states next month and landing here, in the UK
in August. Don't stay you weren't warned - these WILL sell out
immediately! At a cost of £19.50 they may appear pricey, but they will
easily last you for years if you're an occasional user. Even if you used
one daily, it would still last for months!
Are you a MAC MSF collector? Which LE shade do you wish you had in your possession? Not a fan? Tell me why!
Arrrrrrrrgh! How annoying, I forgot to photograph and swatch Light Flush
which I've just found hiding smugly underneath my back up of MAC Ripe
