MAC Lightscapade Mineralize Skinfinish

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 6 - 2012

Ha!  It feels kinda old-skool to be reviewing this on the blog no?  MAC isn’t the force in the blogging community that it once was.  Anyway, I for one am delighted that there’s room for so many other brands nowadays – though I’m excited to be pulling out a trusty old MSF for today’s review nonetheless.

Pretty ain’t she?  Lightscapade is that delicate cousin that looks all willowy and ethereal when compared to your ruddy, more “sturdy” self.  If you can’t *be* her, then at least steal some of her daintyness by dusting your cheekbones and hoping that she’ll impart a ghostly, wispy beauty to your fizzog.

One of MAC’s more finely-milled mineralize skinfinishes, Lightscapade was hugely sought after until the brand re-promoted it last year.  The one I have above is from this re-promote and may or may not be less or more beautiful than its predecessor.  I don’t care enough to google.

Lightscapade is a glowing, almost-white highlight with enough of a warm sheen to prevent you from looking like the undead, madeup.  I apply this with the MAC 130 to keep the application area to a minimum cheekbone highlight, it’s easy to go overboard.

Obviously, what with MAC’s numerous releases and limited editions, you can’t currently purchase this from the store but keep an eye out on eBay as I imagine the prices will be less extortionate than they were before the re-promote.

Are you a fan of MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes?  Which is your favourite?

    I find MSFs too obvious – I prefer Japanese products…

  2. Never used a highlighter until I won a New Cid one from a particularly fantastic blog that I am an ardent follower of, ahem!, and whilst I don’t use it all the time for a night out it is fantastic for a bit of a candle lit glow, that said the New Cid one is very warm, this would look a bit too stand out on me I think. xx

    Ooooh, this is pretty. I only have one MSF – Stereo Rose – which I really like but it’s a bloody fine line between lovely rosy glow and horrific 80’s hooker. There are so many cheaper baked highlighters that I don’t think I’d spring for another MSF highlighter – Accessorize Pretty Pink and BeautyUk Peaches and Cream work just luverly for me.

  6. That is very pretty. My first MSF remains my favourite: Northern Lights. It is a little on metallic side but I love the colour and sheen. I bought Petticoat a couple of years ago and sold it on very quickly and I’ve avoided them ever since. I know Blonde is back and that has turned my head before.

  7. I generally am not a fan of MSFs, though I do own a few (Lightscapade being one of them).

    Ahh! Pretty, pretty, pretty. I’ve withstood the Lightscapade allure thus far, but I have to say: your swatch makes a pretty damn good argument for it.

    Aw, that’s almost exactly the color I’ve been wanting for a powder highlighter *sigh*.

    Lightscapade is awesome. I have about 4 of these (yes, I know I went overboard…) but I have hit pan on my first 1 so it’s all good :D xo
