I got two of the Mineralize Skinfinishes from the Tropical Taboo Face Collection. I know that there are tons of well done reviews on the collection, so I am just sharing swatches for ladies of my skintone and ramble about anything else I find relevant.

Soft and Gentle


Soft And Gentle has always been and always will be ‘that highlighter’ to me, so I am always glad to see it being repromoted because if you missed it, you have another chance to pick it up. Soft and Gentle is a pale gold that leaves a light dusting of sheen on my face.  I love it on light makeup days, or days that I want to highlight under the brows, the cheekbones, just where ever!

A little bit goes a long way with this highlighter, but unlike some MSF’s, it’s not a glitter bomb. It is as the shade says: Soft And Gentle.




Adored was not what I dreamed it would be, so I’m still trying to figure out a way to use this and love it. Adored is soft shimmery golden peach, but it’s almost too soft for my taste.  It really calls my pores out to play when I apply it heavily. It leaves behind a lot of golden glittery shimmery goodness so you will sparkle like a jewel in the sun! But in regular light, it’s very ashy against my skintone.


I’m still thinking about Rio, I might go back and snag that one.  A little piece of me is afraid that it will look ashy on my skin too. I have a lot to think about.

You can check the collection out on the MAC website. They retail for $30 each.
