MAC Mineralize x 4

Know why the Mineralize line is one of my favorite pigment finish especially with x4.


Last year, I got really close with the Mineralize line through the lipstick, the highlighters (one of my fav's in the world as you can see below), and the Divine Night limited edition collection. While the latter tends to fall off, I really like how this range of pigments brings a different finish to the skin. Let's see it more through the new eye shadows.

MAC Mineralize Collection

(+) First, I like that MAC now releases different colors in one palette which is great for busy women. While the combination of colors is for a monochromatic look, the hues are unique which you'll discover below.
(+) The packaging! Is classy in black and product is locked through magnet. The pigments are shaped like baked shadows.


(+) Suitable for all skin tones, the pre-filled palettes come with  four shades each, in colour waves of A Glimmer of Gold, A Waft of Grey, A Harvest of Greens, A Sprinkle of Blues,  A Medley of Mauves and A Party of Pastels. I got the blue and mauve palettes which will be the bases of my review.
(+) Based on swatch below, it seems like each palette and the colors in it, have different finishes which is the thing that I'm most particular on, besides the feeling of the product (because it's Mineralize)
(+) The Blue palette shows great unique color, with extraordinary finish, but lacking in consistency a bit especiall on the mid-colors.

(+) Nonetheless, the Mauve shows extraordinary quality in all aspects. The finish is metallic, with a glitters/shimmers that are more secured and blended well with the pigment to the skin.

(+) The feeling and texture is like baked but less thick and creamy. Easy to apply and glide as well.

(+) For a perfect smoky, the Mineralize pigment just has the greatest ability to blend. The smoky effect doesn't partition the different levels of colors.

(+) Glitters/shimmers are not too big as well which makes it look very luxurious.

(+) Level of shine and brightness it can give at night is beyond excellent as well, as with any Mineralize product of MAC.

(+) Not my more favorite color, Mauve, which is perfect for the season!

(+) A perfect blend of brown and mauve, with a better coverage and consistency as aforementioned.

(+) Lasts for long, and glitters/shimmers don't fall off. The 3D effect it gives under light is one of its selling point as well.

Despite the price, I still recommend this product especially if you have a set of color that matches your skin tone. Mauve is perfect for me, and with the great luxurious finish, 3D effect, and feeling of this Mineralize product, I would definitely repurchase.

There's also a new series of Mineralize Rich Lipstick colors (review here) and The new Mineralize Glass - both a bit more expensive than the regular MAC lip products - that you can consider to take care of your lips' health while maintaining color.




"Your lips can be the ultimate style statement. Introducing Mineralize Glass, a sophisticated new Lipglass infused  with nutrients that envelop lips in luscious colour. Enhanced with a 77-Mineral Ferment Complex, Mineralize Glass keeps lips soft and silky, providing a luminous, modern shine. The comfortable formula smoothes on with a plush applicator designed to hug every curve of your lips. 12 shades in stylish new packaging keep your pout polished in a pearlescent shade perfect for every mood. "
