MAC ColourCraft: MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Review, Photos, and Swatches

But of course the best should always be saved for last which is why I’m posting about the new MAC Mineralized Skinfinishes as the last of my MAC Colour Craft haul. I do not deny that I have a serious addiction to MSF, I do not deny that I have the pokemon, collect ‘em all disease when it comes to MSF, and I most definitely do not deny that I hauled all of these bad boys today (minus Pink Porcelain as I already have it) without an ounce of remorse, I’m stimulating the economy you see and doing my job as a good American.


Jump ahead for a peep!

With a release of six shades, six shades, yes six shades, I really dig saying that. With a release of six shades total this is a big MSF release and an exciting one to say the least. Five brand new shades, one new finish (kinda it’s been visited before with MAC BBR), and one repromote make up the best of MAC Color Craft for me. Three of the new MSF are solid colors where as three have a new color graduation finish a la the release of MAC Blonde, Brunette, and Redhead.


Of course I do favor the trio, un-solid MSF in this release as they are a bit different and unique plus the solid shades were just a tad too matte and dark. I took note that these could easily multitask as an eyeshadow if you want and in fact the formula even kind of felt like mineralized shadow. I hauled all three shades as each was more beautiful than the other, I can’t resist pretty MAC.

Warm Blend is primarily the darkest shade of the three with a trio of bronze brown colors. Triple Fusion considerably lighter than Warm Blend and almost pastel-like with it’s shimmering shades of golden champagne, peachy bronze, and golden pink. And lastly, the most unique of the three, Smooth Merge. Smooth Merge is made up of a paler pink, coppery pink, and deep golden beige.



The solid MSF I got were Cheeky Bronze and Sunny by Nature. Sunny by Nature is quite matte, not a shimmery finish and very deeply bronze which I’m unsure if I can pull off but I think a dab won’t hurt, it’s not my favorite shade but I’m glad I got it regardless. Cheeky Bronze feels like a Petticoat dupe but without the intricate golden veining. It’s semi matte with a touch of shimmer, nothing crazy and almost pink in color, very pretty and my fav of the two.


Shimmer haters will be relieved that these are rather subdued minus heavy glittery chunks when compared to previous releases. The shades are all deeply pigmented and can act as a highlighter, bronzer, or just a blush.

All in all it’s a very exciting release of color for MAC and my favorite part of MAC Colour Craft.

How about you?

Which did you haul?
