The MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade is one of my favourite makeup products of all time however I’ve never written about it here on my blog.. until now so I finally decided to dedicate a post to the beauty that is; MAC Lightscapade.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade Review and Swatches
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish – Lightscapade £22
MAC Lightscapade was a purchase enabled by Lily Melrose way before I ever started blogging myself. Lightscapade was billed as being the perfect highlighter for those with pale skin, so of course that meant I had to try it for myself.
Lightscapade was originally a limited edition release as part of the 2006 Danse Collection and has since been re-released several times, although thankfully it is now permanent. MAC Lightscapade is described by MAC as being a ‘soft candlelight beige with multi-dimensional shimmer’.
Lightscapade is very pale in the pan with beautiful multicoloured veining of peach, blue and lilac but the veining does differ from product to product as they’re all baked individually. I’ve seen some Lightscapade reviews where there has only been minimal veining, so I’m pleased by how much veining and how evenly distributed it is throughout the powder. Sometimes baked blushes or highlighters can be quite chunky or gritty in texture however MAC Lightscapade has such a lovely silky, finely milled texture which glides across the skin beautifully without emphasising my pores.
I love applying Lightscapade with either a fan brush or my Real Techniques Setting Brush to lightly dust it along my cheekbones, brow bones and cupids bow to give my skin a natural, luminous glow. Lightscapade really is the most incredible highlighter for pale skin.. it doesn’t look at all ashen or metallic and can be built up easily too.
Lightscapade is my holy grail highlighter.. it’s absolutely stunning! Even on days where I’m just using concealer rather than foundation, Lightscapade helps to inject life into my complexion. The only teeny downfall of MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade is that because it has such a light texture, the weartime isn’t fantastic at around 3-4 hours but this doesn’t bother me in the slightest as it’s the most beautiful highlighter I own… I’m that besotted with its beauty that I have two brand new, boxed Lightscapade’s hidden away incase MAC ever discontinue it.
