MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade

Says MAC:


A luxurious powder with 77-Mineral Complex that adds highlights to the face and body.

Soft candlelit beige with multidimensional shimmer
10 g / 0.35 US oz
Honestly, I should just make a separate highlighter blog now.
Ok so a lot of people usually go for Soft & Gentle in this range but I went for Lightscapade, cuz I’m sure by now y’all know I’m all about that pale gold highlight.



I love the shade. Icy gold. That’s what the multiple colors in this combine to form. This shade doesn’t look ashy on my light-medium/olive/tan skin tone, just so you know.

It is quite pigmented, as you will see below. However, this can provide a subtle highlight if you apply it lightly. It can be built up if you want to go for something out there like a strobing effect.

It isn’t powdery and blends well to give a radiant, glowy finish.

It lasts for around 6-7 hours as a cheek highlighter on me, depending on how dry or humid it is. It leaves little shimmers as it fades.

The packaging is pretty and you get 10g worth of product for $32. A bit pricey, but if you want a MAC Mineralize Skinfinish, this is a lovely shade to go for.


There is tiny visible shimmer in this. It blends well on top on foundation/BB cream though.

Moisturize well underneath as it may emphasize dry patches.

At $32, this might be a bit pricey especially if you end up with something you didn’t want.


I apply this with a dome shaped highlighting brush from Real Techniques, but you can also use a fan brush for a more subtle effect.

Do I recommend this?

If you are looking for a pale gold, warm toned powder highlight which can be built up, and you don’t mind a bit of shimmer here and there, this is a good option.

While I like this a lot, I may not repurchase it, especially seeing as how drugstore brands offer such good quality powder highlights these days. (Colourpop Lunch Money, I gots my eye on you!)


Available at MAC counters and online.

Other things I love right now:

  • Welcome To Night Vale by Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor, based on the hit podcast Welcome To Night ValeHonestly, I love this book. I listen to random episodes of the podcast, because I find some of the songs annoying, but if you love madness intermingled with reality and real life problems, and if you want a short break from life, READ THIS BOOK! (Images below of the book’s cover have been taken by me.)
  • The Guest – a horror short on YouTube by Bryan Ryan. Managed to scare the bejeezus out of me in under 15 minutes. That’s impressive. 
  • Liquor by Chris BrownI do not like Chris Brown, the person. But man, does he know how to make catchy hooks. *All I want is you-ou-ou-ou*


P.S. – Nothing in this post is sponsored, I’m not promoting anything. Just talking about a bunch of stuff I like.
