My ipsy Glam Bag for August arrived earlier than expected,…
I have about 15 different highlighting powders, but the one I love the most is MAC Lightscapade Mineralize Skinfinish. This has been around for quite a few years, popping up here and there for a new collection then disappearing. It has now joined the permanent collection with a new design (the compact is a bit more concave). But the new one is different… I’ll get to that in a bit.
A luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on, adding buffed-up highlights to cheeks and brows, or an overall ultra-deluxe polish to the face.
Lightscapade is described as a soft, candlelit beige with multidimensional shimmer. The one I have is from a 2011 release, which I backed up just in case it disappeared again.
If you purchased this gorgeous powder any time after 2011, you may notice quite a difference from the one I have… they are now what people are starting to call “Beigescapades” because of the lack of subtle blue, gold and pink veining that you can see above. The new ones look a bit more shimmery and not as “dimensional” as the older versions, but I have yet to play around with them.
On my NW15 skin, it is a very subtle, finely milled highlight powder perfect to wear every day, and because of the soft nature of the shimmer, it doesn’t accentuate my pores. I would put this up on my list next to Hourglass Dim Light as far as efficacy and formula, although it is quite a bit lighter and has more obvious shimmer.
Now I can’t say for sure what the newer Lightscapade MSFs are like, but if they perform at all like the one I have, I’d say they are a must-have MAC purchase. That being said, I do plan to go in store and play around with then new Lightscapade to see what the difference is. In the meantime, sit back and swoon over this beauty.
MAC Cosmetics Lightscapade Mineralize Skinfinish is $37 CAD available on MACcosmetics.com and at all MAC stores.
