MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes in Blonde and Redhead

(Blonde, Redhead)

When I found out that MAC had released the Blonde and Redhead mineralize skinfinishes ($28.00 each), as part of their latest collection-Naturally, I jumped for joy. I knew immediately that these two gems were going in my shopping cart, when I purchased them from the MAC website. I missed out on these mineralize skinfinishes when they were originally released as part of the Brunette, Blonde, Redhead collection (from 2009?). So, I was not going to make that same mistake again. Read on to find out why these two products are rocking my world!

Left To Right: Redhead, Blonde (sorry about the glares)

If you love soft, pink cheeks, then blonde is the way to go. A peach-coral lover? No problem. Redhead has got you covered. Both of these limited edition mineralize skinfinishes contain four sections of colors, that compliment each other beautifully. Starting from the left of the compact, the color strips gradually transition from lightest to deepest. You can apply the lightest of the bunch, and use that to create a soft highlight. Or, swirl your blush brush on all four colors, and you have yourself a pretty blush color, that will instantly liven your cheeks, and give them a healthy looking glow. With these two, you basically have a highlighter/blush in one! Gotta love multi-tasking products.

Both products contain fine, smooth shimmers. Personally, I don't find the shimmers as overbearing as they are, when it comes to other highlighters. Of course, as with all shimmered face products, its best to not overdo it and know your limits. I have gotten heavy handed before and applied more than I needed to. When that occurred, I noticed that my pores were slightly enlarged. So, just remember that a little bit of this product goes a long way. Not so much for the fear of overdoing the amount of color, but overdoing the shimmers. I think the pigment on these is fantastic. The colors aren't super bright, but they have enough pigment to keep one satisfied. The texture of both skinfinishes are so smooth. The smooth texture really helps both products blend effortlessly into my cheeks. Last, I find that these stay on my cheeks all day. They do not budge whatsoever, off of my oily skin. So, I am definitely happy with the lasting power.

I adore both of these mineralize skinfinishes, but I am having a love affair with blonde as of late. The soft pink, flattering glow that my cheeks get is just amazing. I can't rave about it enough. And come to think of it, I actually thought that Redhead was going to be my most favorite, seeing as it has the golden, peachy-coral color schemes that I usually go for. In any case, both the redhead and blonde mineralize skinfinishes are so beautiful in their own special way, and I know that I am going to be getting a lot of use from these.

Currently, I see that these two limited edition mineralize skinfinishes are still available on the MAC website. So jump on the mineralize skinfinish ship ASAP, and get one-or both of these beauties! Believe me when I say, you NEED these in your life. Get to it! 


What do you think of the Blonde and Redhead Mineralize Skinfinishes? Did any of you pick these up?

  2. They are in fact, re-promotes, Sofia :) They were released in MAC's Brunette, Blonde, Redhead collection. If I remember correctly, that collection was released back in 2009.

    Are you thinking of picking these up?

  3. I love Redhead! I didn't pick up Blonde, but I liked the way it looked when I swatched it at the MAC counter.

  4. I got redhead and love it. I wasn't so much into MAC when they first came out, so I was pleased that they were back.

  5. @Rai- Yea, blonde sure is pretty. I was initially intent on picking up redhead and not blonde. But, I decided to give blonde a go anyways, and I am so surprised that I love it as much as I do. I am so happy I decided to give Blonde a chance :) Redhead is pretty too, but blonde is just phenomenal!

    @Justine- Same here! I was still a makeup newbie myself back when it was released. But, now I know that MAC is all kinds of awesome :) I am so excited for their new collection coming out next month-the cook MAC one. The colors are so bright and stunning. Definitely up my alley.

  8. I would suggest trying Redhead. It is much warmer than Blonde is and, it has lovely peach/golden tones that would compliment your complexion beautifully :)
    If you decide to give it a try, please stop by again and let me know how it worked out for you!
