It seems like she put it on in the wrong area and it doesn't go with the rest of her look. I like the rest of her make up minus the gold glitter.


Now y'all are going to make me want to buy bronzer I don't need. Hate y'all.LOL

I didn't know MAC mineralize skin finish was so purdy.Heart



Unfortunately 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.
I'm 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.


Top Row: Sunny by Nature, Shooting Star, Gold Deposit, Glissade
Middle Row:Warm Blend, Smooth Merge, Brunette
Bottom Row: By Candlelight, Metal Rock

and without flash in natural daylight...
 
 
 Taken with flash

and again in daylight ...


Sunny by Nature - Rich bronze with pink pearl pigment
Shooting Star - Soft caramel tan with gold sparkle
Gold Deposit - Soft reflective golden-bronze
Glissade - Golden peach with muted metallic plum veining
Warm Blend - Antique gold/Mahogany bronze/Copper
Smooth Merge - Soft champagne pink/Deep rose/Pale cool pink
Brunette - Soft coral to copper bronze degrade
By Candlelight - Golden Pink
Metal Rock - Cocoa-blushed bronze with copper shimmer

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. 

I 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. 

Be 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!

ETA: 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 Peach! Curses!!
