MAC In The Groove Collection Mineralize Skinfinish Reviews

All four MSFs in this collection are repromotes. They have a smooth texture and go on with great pigmentation. The colors can also work as blush, highlighter and bronzer on a variety of skin tones. Talk about versatile!

Comfort, which was released in the Warm and Cozy Collection, is the perfect golden bronze color and my favorite MSF to use as a bronzer for my NC30 skin.

By Candlelight is a light beige with pink undertones, also from the Warm and Cozy Collection. I love this as a highlighter.
Petticoat, one of the older MSFs, is a gorgeous frosty light pink with gold and amber veining that I love to use as a blush.
Stereo Rose, is a warm coral with golden bronze and also one of the first MSFs that I own. It gives my NC30 skin a really nice, natural flush.

  1. I have only recently got into MAC products; finally owned my first one ^^
    These MSF looks really interesting, maybe a good alternative to Guerlain’s Meteorites

  2. I am so glad I decided to go to my MAC store last week, knowing they usually release major collections early usually. I love love love Stereo Rose and I have been wearing it everyday since I bought it. I went back today to pick up Petticoat MSF and In the Groove eyeshadow as well and Stereo Rose is sold out across the board in my area.

  3. Gorgeous. I already have By Candlelight but it shattered (my heart broke). Can’t wait to get a new one + the Stereo Rose msf as well.

  4. I picked up stereo rose without realising the hype and it was my first MAC purchase ever! I’m so pleased I did. I later got By Candlelight, Petticoat, soften the mood, in the groove and Jazzed. I love ’em all. I am usually Nars girl but I fell in love with MAC, oh, it’s too late now. My wallet will not like it.

  5. Hello all….
    What color would i get? To use as a highlighter/blush… Brunette with highlights, green eyes, and tan easily not sure what skin type i am…
    Thanks for the tips!!
