A luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks, or an overall ultra-deluxe polish to the face.Just a little beauty blog lingo for you before I start...Mineralize Skinfinishes are also known as MSFs :)

This highly coveted Skinfinish is truly stunning. It gives off a beautiful, natural glow and despite it's white "in the pan" appearance, the buffed out end result gives off more of a pale golden sheen. What I love about Lightscapade is that it goes with all color palettes. It doesn't matter what eyeshadows or cheek colors I wear, Lightscapade looks lovely.
Yet another one of MAC's most popular Mineralize Skinfinishes is Perfect Topping. This MSF, like Lightscapade gives a beautiful glow, but it leans more toward pinked peach. The texture of this one is amazingly smooth. Plus, how gorgeous is it in the pan? Love it!
The gorgeous By Candlelight adds a stunning peach champagne sheen to the skin. The sheen/shine factor of this MSF is definitely high though so a little goes a very long way. I literally only have to tap my duo fiber brush on the product to get enough for both cheeks. It looks beautiful over bronzer. A very smooth, blendable texture.
Cheeky Bronze...oh my. Similar to By Candlelight in its smooth texture, but Cheeky Bronze is more peach than champagne. The pigmentation on this one is stronger than the previous MSFs that I've shared with you. It's what I love about Cheeky Bronze...it makes a beautiful, glowing peach blush. I especially love it during the summer.
So Ceylon was one of my first Mineralize Skinfinishes along with Soft and Gentle (which just met its untimely demise). It has a definite red tone to it...redder than what the swatch above translates. Also, it has less of a sheen than the other MSFs that I have which make it a bit more "wearable" if you're shy about non-matte cheek colors.
The most unique of my MSF collection is Triple Fusion. Three strips of color, allowing for several different color combinations. I tend to wear this one when I'm going plum or neutral on the eyes, swirling all three colors together. Therefore, I use it less than all of the others, but I still think it's GORGEOUS. Oh and it's AMAZING for eyeshadow.
