MAC By Candlelight Mineralize Skinfinish

It's not very often that I get excited about a MAC collection, but I've been waiting to see Warm and Cozy for a while now because of all the great reviews I heard and saw for By Candlelight MSF.

MAC describe this as a golden pink which is fairly accurate, although I'd probably call it a nude pink glow (just to be difficult). It's a beautiful colour that looks soft and natural, like I have naturally glowing skin. I've been wearing it a lot since I bought it, especially on the weekends when I don't want to look done up. It's a great highlighter, I've been using it as a blush, an eyeshadow and also as a highlighter on my cheeks and under my brow bone.   

I had a lot of trouble getting a good picture of how By Candlelight looks on my skin. In this picture I'm wearing it as an eyeshadow and blush. As you can see, it gives me a very subtle glow that's natural and gorgeous. 

Would I buy it again? Yes, it's a heavenly colour.

  1. It really is a gorgeous colour...I'm not a fan of MSF's but I can't wait to see this in person!

  2. this is gorgeous! i've had my eyes on MAC's MSF for a while now, the only thing i'm concerned about is their use of ingredients..
