MAC Mineralize skin finish-Petticoat review & swatches

???????????????????????????????

This blush was a part of In The Groove Collection that came in 2010.I didnt buy it but my sister got her first ever makeup product from MAC that was this skin finish.But,as she stays away from cosmetics,i took the opportunity of using it.

It was a limited edition skin finish.

???????????????????????????????

PRICE: Around rs,1800 or so for 10gms.

PACKAGING:The packaging is domed shaped and bigger than the normal blushes available at MAC.The shade name is provided at the back of the skin finish.

???????????????????????????????

SHADE:I would describe this skinfinish as a pink bronze with plum tones.I feel it is more of a blush than a highlighter.

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER:The texture is really smooth and finely milled.It blends easily and definitely gives an appearance of a finished and defined look.It is shimmery and can easily be overdone.

???????????????????????????????

When i am using this,i prefer to keep the other things subtle as it looks overdone.It makes my skin look more toned and defined.I like the way it highlights my cheekbones.

The shimmer present isnt gritty nor it is OTT.

It stays for around 7-8 hours and gives a healthy glow to my face.

??????????????????????????????? Please note that i have applied it extra for the purpose of showing!!
