I’m still unpacking from our recent move (I know…I’m ON IT), and I’ve had limited access to my art supplies and even internet. But I am reading and enjoying all of your wonderful comments, and I can’t wait to get back in the illustration groove soon!
Future MAC collection Mineralize Rich Lipsticks
As far as MAC Mineralize Lipsticks go, these are sheer-medium and verrrry hydrating. I prefer comfort over super long-wear formulas on most days, but I’m not sure about some of these shades. The lighter shades, in particular, look…interesting.
Milk mustaches come to mind, actually.
The sheerness, coupled with the lightness, of Supernova doesn’t work for me, but I think the effect works better with the middle shades, like Cybernaut and Metafabulous.
And Cybernaut only works because I’m stubbornly “in like” with it, LOL! I’ve been interested in cooler shades because of the nice contrast with my warm skin.
Metafabulous has a warm peachy tone that blends nicely into my lips and skin. I like the subtle nude effect. It’s an easy everyday pick.
Speaking of nice nudes, Touch the Earth is a great browny nude. It looks scarily brown and grey in the tube, but I’ve been able to wear it day and night without concern.
Finally, the deepest shade, Ionized, is another gorgeous color, but I think it could be improved with a little more pigment. In my face swatch above, the center of my lips show through a little more than I would like.
Future MAC collection Mineralize Lipglasses
So…there’s a very subtle difference between each of the Mineralize Lipglasses. They’re all essentially clear with different multicolored glitters, and these were the best shots I could get, honestly!
Interspatial (pretty purple glitter!) and The Zone (browny gold) have the strongest discernible difference, but even that is a stretch. I think you’d be set no matter which shade you picked, so go for the one with the glitter you like the most!
I hope these photos help you decide which lippies to look out for the next time you stop by your MAC counter!
Thanks, guys, and see you in the next,
