MAC MSFs : Like it or hate it? They are versatile as face powders, blushers, and if you push your luck, even eyeshadows. Today i used the lightest shade in my Smoth Merge MSF as a eyeshadow highlighter. My very first MAC MSF is Porcelain Pink, a pale champage pink color.
I am an unintentional collector of MSFs. In general, I stay away from shine/ glitter heavy products and most of MAC MSFs are rather glittery. But in recent collections, they have change their texture, they have become smoother, and come in such a myriad of colors and 'patterns'. Case in point - Perfect Topping from the Sugarsweet Collection. Then there are the stripey ones, like Blonde (from Blonde Brunette Redhead), or Smooth Merge or Warm Blend (from CC) just to name a few. I tend to stay away from the bronzey types, cos I just ain't very into bronzers in general. I tend to sway towards the pink/ peach tones.
Before I ramble on further, here is my little family of MSFs.
Clockwise from top: MSF Natural with Shimmer (I hit pan on this!!) from the Sonic Chic collection, Petticoat which I hunted for on my travels and I bought it in Paris, Blonde, Perfect Topping, Smooth Merge, Pink Porcelain, and in the center MSF natural in Light Medium.
This is a BAD swatch, but I can't take a good pic for nuts! The most pigmented ones which actually show up in the pics are: Petticoat and Smooth Merge.
Next, we have the Mineralised Blushers. There are a couple of permanent ones in the MAC line, but last year there was a Mineralised Biushers collection (can't remember the name though), and more recently we have Grand Duos and Color Craft.
Too bad you can't depot these babies, because of their dome shape they don't fit into the flat palettes, and also they don't actually come in the usual metal pans.
I realised that I have pairs of my mineralised blushers. I have 6 in total, but they are essentially 3 different colours.
First Pair Pleasantry & Daft Pink both blue tone pink blushers.
Second Pair Improvise and Naunce - peachy colors.
And the final pair, the darker cranberry colors: Intenso and Style Demon
I love all my MSFs and these mineralised blushers. If I were to pick my faves, I would choose Daft Pink and Petticoat.
Now I am thinking if I should get the MAC131 brush, it seems perfect to pick up the super pigmented and dark colors which I accquired lately. Or else the 188 brush.
Do you have a fave MAC mineralised powder?
