I have not had the chance to try the MAC mineralized skinfinishes, and because I have yet to come across colors that really caught my attention, have been hesitant to purchase any, until this year.
The MAC mineralized skinfinishes are a soft powder with a metallic finish that, depending on the shade, can be used on the cheeks or all over the face. But because they do have such a metallic to them, I would just use them around the cheek area to avoid looking like a disco ball. They work much better as a highlight, blush, or bronzer while adding that extra bit of something special.
One of the two mineralized skinfinishes that I picked up was from the Naturally collection which was released back in February. Redhead is a golden pink blush or highlighter color (depending on your skin tone) that includes four different strips of color to create that beautiful pinkish gold. The four colors are champagne beige, deeper champagne, peachy beige, and bronzy pink. Similar to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer bricks, you can use these individual strips of champagne colors as shadows if desired.
Even though the texture of the mineralized skinfinishes are incredibly velvety, soft, and smooth, the metallic finish is not forgiving on pores and dried skin. The texture and finish of the skinfinishes do emphasize the problem areas, so it might not be the right product for you if you are concerned with imperfections or the texture of your skin. It`s not incredibly noticeable where people would see and point out, and it does still photograph beautifully, so it might be a nice product to have for those once in a while occasions where you want that extra glow.
Redhead is a re-promotes, so although you cannot find it on the counters or in MAC stores now, you might want to check your local CCO, or just keep an eye out for another re-promote in future collections.
