MAC has released a few versions of this beautiful pressed mineral powder highlighter over the years. I have the current version in the permanent line with the new magnetized compact (MAC, please do this with all your compacts – never another broken nail!). There is a limited edition version where the powder top is texturized, but I’m not sure how it compares to this one.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade
The product itself is beautiful. You can see ribbons of gold, blue, and peach swirled throughout the yellowish base.
Swirled together, they come out to a very light champagne color, a light shade leaning slightly warm. This highlighter is actually light enough to highlight fair skin, which is hard to come by! I’m a MAC NW10 and this is perfection on me.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Lightscapade swatched heavily
This product can be worn heavily for a metallic sheen, or applied lightly for a barely there glow that’s suitable for daytime. It’s shimmer without glitter; this will not emphasize imperfections in the skin like something that’s frosty might.
I wish my iPhone could show how it looks on me…I will get my fancy camera out and get a photo in the sun! I’m wearing it here, but my house was so dark, it’s hard to tell. 😉

This compact comes with a whopping 10 grams of product. It’s going to take ages to go through it, which is one reason I allowed myself to shell out $32.00 for a highlighter. Next, I’m going to try it as an eyeshadow highlight.
MAC makes this great product in other gorgeous shades for darker skin tones and even colors that function like bronzers. Do you use the Mineralize Skinfinishes? How do you like them? For me, I’ve found a new daily staple. I only wish I had splurged sooner!
