I just got sent a couple more bits and pieces from the MAC Lightness of Being collection, so I thought I’d get them swatched up for you to have a look at. Above is Skinfinish in Perfect Topping. If you haven’t used a MAC Skinfinish before, they’re designed to be used all over the face (or point of, if you prefer) to give a lustrous finish to your makeup. They do do exactly that, although I’d hesitate to use them during the day – think more candlelight glow which kind of needs the evening to do the job properly. Perfect Topping is all pink/gold nuances – it’s really pretty and I should think would last for nearly ever because it’s quite some chunk of makeup!
On the right is Mineralize Glass in Boundless Energy. Nothing could be more inappropriately named – there is literally no colour to this – it’s pretty much a clear gloss. The Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Touch The Earth is a bit baffling as well – it’s a cold beige/brown, which is hard to do! Once on the lip, there’s no warmth at all and it made me look a bit ill. It’s described as a ‘light wood brown’. I don’t know who it would suit – but certainly not me!
All together the swatches look quite pretty, but individually, the only product that shines is the Skinfinish. I think you need to do some careful buying if you’re after anything from this collection – a lot of the shades are just a little bit ‘off’. You can find MAC Lightness of Being HERE.
