Happy to see MAC extend their permanent line of lipsticks!
Now, the new Mineralize Rich Lipsticks (19 new shades) will be available at all times!
The lipsticks are indeed very very very creamy and full of moisture- so your lips will be hydrated at all times! I always love MAC’s colors but many of them are matte and tend to dry my lips- but these ones are different!
I have 3 shades- and I have been testing it for a few days before writing about them to see their staying power and hydration!
The lipsticks just glide easily onto the lips! That’s what I love most about it. It is super rich in moisture that your lips feel very comfortable. And Also another great thing about it (IT IS NON STICKY)!
What I didn’t like was the similar shades in the collection… The pinks where very similar to each other and the dark reds too- felt like it was very repeated in the same collection!
Here are the pictures I took from Dubai when the collection launched
What you will also realize- These lipsticks have a different plastic packaging! Don’t look like the original MAC lipsticks- and also- they have magnetic caps! I kinda like the magnetic caps because it ensures that your lipstick is closed. Sometimes the original mac lipstick doesn’t close well or the cover breaks so at least the magnet ensures closure.
So these are the shades I took (elegant accent , lush life, glamour era) – a pink, a dark red and a beige
Elegant accent is a medium warm rosy color
Lush Life is a deep cool plum. I love how it is a bit translucent- lets your lip shine through. This color changes under different lighting
Glamour Era is more like a caramel beige
FYI: This collection has launched worldwide and will launch Aug 14 in Bahrain.
The other thing which I got from the MAC heavenly creature collection is the “EARTHLY” eyeshadow!
Earthly eyeshadow is basically a swirl of beige, peach and cool brown with some gold.
To be honest.. I dislike this product! What you see is NOT what you get!
The packaging shows you colors of beige, brown & gold… however…. what you GET is actually a taupe grey color!
Once those colors are mixed- the color becomes tinted with grey and very little brown is shown.
I purchased the product thinking that with the mixture of such colors i would get a beautiful brownish gold color- but what i actually got was a metalicish Grey!
If you like greyish eyeshadows with a pearly metallic sheen- then get this one! If you want it so somewhat be brown/gold… then this is the wrong one to take!
Looked amazing on the pan.. but once it was blended.. looked disappointing!
Couldn’t try it in store as they were super neat & the customers did not touch them!!
However, the color payoff is not bad and good pigmentation!
So the heavenly creature collection by MAC has launched everywhere in the world- except here- well… I have got my share from MAC in Spain !
This collection will launch in Bahrain AUG 14 (most probably)- so I hope this will help in knowing what to buy!
The collection resembles “planets“! The full collection is mineralize products. Something exciting in this collection also is the return of the famous volcanic ash!! I have reviewed the special volcanic ash exfoliator here in case you have missed it!
There has been major chaos in the beauty industry that this is the WOW collection from MAC… but to be honest… When I saw it- I didn’t go crazy! I just got 2 products – it wasn’t that attractive to me! (PERSONAL OPINION)..
BUT IF YOU DESPERATELY NEED HIGHLIGHTERS… THEN THIS IS THE COLLECTION U SHOULD FOCUS ON!!
Well, I wanted to review something I liked from the collection- the “LIGHT YEAR” Mineralize Skinfinish!
Light Year is a skinfinish with a peachy pink and gold shimmer. It has a swirl of peachy coral pink with a bigger swirl of gold.
You can use this skinfinish as a blush or highlighter!
It has very high pigmentation – and the color is gorgeous. Rose goldish shade…. that is not tooo glittery/shimmery. That is what i liked about it- when the gold is blended with the pink it gives off a beautiful color! Surprisingly it is very similar to “REDHEAD” skinfinish from the MAC Naturally collection- if you missed the review read about it here !!
Check out the swatch below to see how the color looks like
Beautiful golden sheen!
MY VERDICT: If you really need a highlighter- this will be a fabulous one! But i don’t suggest using it if you are very pale!
This gorgeous product from MAC recently launched in Bahrain- 2 days ago… well it has been launched ages ago in other countries …
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in the shade “RedHead” is what grabbed my attention from the MAC Naturally collection!
This product can be considered a blush and/or a highlighter! I use it as a highlighter
Redhead consists of gold to pink shades- And it is LIMITED EDITION! ( it is a repromote though keep in mind- has been introduced previously)
It carries strips of 4 gradual shades: champagnish beige, dark champagne beige, peachy champagney color & a bronzy shade with a hint of rose
The trick is mixing all these colors together and applying it on ur upper cheekbones (preferrably) to give u a beautiful sheen/glow! It will add some warmth but definetly some sheen/shimmer with a hint of color
It can also work perfectly with bronzed skin! You can also use it as a blush-I would say for those with fair skin
You can easily pull it off by complimenting it with a nude lip! Beautiful combo
It is such a pretty color with great pigmentation. So be careful not to apply TOO much of it! Make it look subtle by using a lighter hand. It does make a great highlighter!!! A subtle one that is not too SILVERISH!
The other skinfinish in this collection is “Blonde” which is more leaning towards a pinkish shade.
My verdict: it is a good buy! If you can’t find a highlighter in Bahrain- this can be a good one
We all love MAC’s mineralize products- either the eyeshadows or the foundations or most important the skinfinish powders! Well, MAC decided to take it up a notch- & to actually launch a SKINCARE line – related to the available Mineralize line!
The collection – I believe- Is great as part of your daily skincare routine! I can’t wait to buy them! I’m a HUGE fan of MAC & it would be great to use their skincare line too!

Minzealize Charged Water Moisture gel- rich, craemy hydrating gel
