Picks and Skips: MAC's Holiday Offerings Part Two - Mineralize Kits

MAC has two Mineralize Kits out for Holiday 2009. Both kits retail at $71.50 CDN ($59.50 US) and each includes a Mineralize eyeshadow duo, a Mineralize Skinfinish (highlighter), a Mineralize blush and a mini buffing brush.

Fun In the Sun Mineralize Kit - Shimpagne Mineralize Skinfinish (soft beige-gold shimmer), Nuance Mineralize Blush (peach-gold), Play on Plums Mineralize Eye Shadow Duo (bronze, burgundy, peach, gold, pink), and the 181SE Mini Buffer. Shimpagne is a covetable shade that was released as Limited Edition (LE) so if you need a reason to pick up this kit, I've just given you one. Just check out Karla Sugar's swatch of it here. It's a beautiful champagne shimmer highlighter that anyone can use. Play on Plums is also a gorgeous eyeshadow particularly for the burgundy and the way the warmer tones compliment it.

Like all the kits, these colours would work on any skin tone but Fun In the Sun, as it sounds, has warmer shades and will work to give your skin a sun-kissed glow. Both Nuance and Shimpagne are LE's (Play on Plums is permanent) so I give this kit a PICK.

Pinkzapoppin! Mineralize Kit - Light Flush Mineralize Skinfinish (soft pink-bronze-peach shimmer), Dainty Mineralize Blush (gold pink moderate shimmer), Love Connection Mineralize Eye Shadow Duo (beige, gold, pink, rose, hint of blue) and the 181SE Mini Buffer. Like Shimpagne in the Fun In the Sun kit, Light Flush Mineralize Skinfinish is also a LE shade that beauty junkies lust over. The kit is worth buying for Light Flush alone. Because this kit is slightly cooler than Fun In the Sun, it's more for fairer skin tones or if you want a more subtle glow effect from these products. Both Dainty and Love Collection (eyeshadow) are permanent colours, so the only reason to buy this kit is if it's a gift for someone, or if you must own Light Flush. SKIP

Karla Sugar has swatches of both kits here if you want a better idea.

Happy Shopping and stay tuned for the remainder of our Picks and Skips for MAC's Holiday Collection!
