Skinfinish Fiend

Who else loves MAC’s Mineralise Skinfinish powders!? They are seriously the best products to have in your kit if you’re a professional MUA or not 😉


These are my humble collection that I started collecting since last year 🙂 From clockwise: Extra Dimension skinfinish in Superb, Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle, Perfect Topping, Stereo Rose, Gold Deposit, Adored, Rio & Lightscapade in the centre.


All of these are unique in their own way and have different finishes. Some are more shimmery, some sparkly and others are subtle! I have already posted swatches and review on 2 of these Skinfinishes in my previous post, 🙂

Let’s start with the first 3! Adored, Rio and Superb.




“Adored” is mixed with beige and peach tones and the finish is quite subtle with blue under tones. You can use this as a highlight on the cheekbones and possibly a light blush on very fair skin tones! “Rio” is mixed with brown and pink tones and the finish is also subtle with red under tones. It makes a beautiful blush for any skin tone! “Superb” is an Extra Dimension Skinfinish which is slightly more shimmery and frosty! It’s so beautiful as a highlight or colour on any skin tones with it’s beige brown sheen. You can see the swatches below show how extra shimmery it is!


Now on to the last 3! Lightscapade, Soft & Gentle and Gold Deposit 🙂 S&G and GD is part of the permanent collection in all MAC stores!






“Lightscapade” is a subtle which you will have to build up if you want it to be very obvious! It leans on a neutral tone and it’s lovely as a highlight or all over the face! “Soft & Gentle” is a beige champagne highlight which isn’t as finely milled as Lightscapade because it has tiny glitter particles! Perfect for the cheekbones. “Gold Deposit” is a beautiful warm and glittery powder which you can use to bronze the face or give depth to your contouring of the cheekbones! I think it’s fantastic during the Summer for that extra kick of bronzed glamour 😉


And here are all 8 swatches of these Skinfinishes to see a comparison from side by side! T-B/L-R: Lightscapade, Soft & Gentle, Perfect Topping, Adored, Superb, Stereo Rose, Rio & Gold Deposit.


You can see in the picture which ones are more shimmery and frosty than others! If you haven’t owned or tried Skinfinish powders, I highly recommend you do! 😉
