MAC Blonde, Brunette, and Redhead Collection: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Brunette Review, Swatches and FOTD

Good Morning World! How are you? Miss me much?

I hope everyone had a super Holiday weekend! It went way too fast didn’t it? I have a slew of reviews for you today and I’ll do my best to get ‘em posted as quickly as possible! I have quite a few comments to get through and will do so shortly. And finally, as always, my inbox is very, very full so if I owe you a reply don’t think I’m ignoring you!

Today I’ll be giving you a sneak peek of one of the three Mineralize Skinfinishes that are releasing with the new MAC Blonde, Brunette, and Redhead Collection. I think alot of people are pretty excited about this collection, I know I am.

I got a chance to play around with a few pieces from the Brunette selection of goodies. This suits me just fine considering that my hair and eyes are dark brown although I do admit that I’ll probably venture into checking out the other selections for the Blonde and Redheads as well considering some of the shades look tempting.

I’m an absolute lover of MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes so when I seen MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Brunette it surely was love!

Isn’t she pretties?

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Brunette is a good deal different when compared to past releases. The color is deeper, contains less shimmer and chunky glitter, and more pigmented than those released in the past. The shade is a deep brown with hints of orange, peach, and has an almost Indian red cast to it. If I’m being honest with myself the color isn’t what I’d normally go for. The color can easily be used as a blush which makes it very appealing to me as I really like not having to apply blush and than apply MSF on top. Using my MSF as both a blush and a highlighter offers a more minimal look where as applying both blush and MSF gives a more me more of a made up look. In regards to minimal you definitely need to apply with a light hand as the product is so deeply pigmented and a little goes a very long way. Interesting enough the skinfinish appears to have an almost gradation appearance with the left side having a lighter shade and the right side having a deeper.

Although I love peachy shades this one gives a certain brown cast to my cheeks which I’m not finding particularly flattering. For some reason the shade looks abnormal on my cheeks and suitable for a much darker skin tone than my own. I do love it none the less but I need to try it a few other ways before settling on the best way to use it. Below I used it as a blush only and didn’t really like the overall effect so I’m wondering if a lighter hand and maybe a peachy shade of blush beneath will give me a better a finish.

Overall, the product does deliver a burst of warmth to the cheeks without the chunky glitter and shimmer that past MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes are known for plus it easily works as both a blush and a highlighter in one product. I think it’s worth picking up as the shade is pretty unique from past releases however the Muse recommends using a very light hand when applying if you’re a fair skinned brunette like myself.

Get cheeky with the MAC Dame Edna Collection after the jump!

I must admit that the MAC Dame Edna Collection definitely holds way more of my interest and attention than the MAC Hello Kitty Collection. I’m simply in love with the lilac packaging! Although the trio color selections aren’t exactly what I’d have liked to see (too similar to shades released already) I can’t deny they are quite Dame Edna themed to say the least. I’m particularly thrilled with the lippies and glosses in this color story as they look quite lovely. The beauty powders as well have caught my eye although I have heard stories that they are chalky but I’m not minding in the least and if worst comes to worst I can always pop them up and replace with my own pressed powder so I can enjoy the lovely lilac packaging!

Whoa it’s a MAC kinda day isn’t it? MAC Chill Collection is available online! CLICK!

I honestly love this collection as I’m a cool kinda girl! My eye is on the MAC Eyeshadow in Wintersky! The rest of the collection is a tad bit ho-hum but I have to see it in person before deciding! It’ll probably be live on counters on Thursday so the Muse will investigate more then!

Specktra has the latest on the MAC Dame Edna Collection and the Muse must say she’s feeling all that purple when compared to the MAC Hello Kitty Collection that I’ve been ranting about today!

I kinda dig all the lilac packaging but I’m not particularly thrilled by the trio…kinda a rehash of MAC Heatherette shades but hey I’m still all about the purple!

What do you think?
