MAC describes Lightscapade Mineralize Skinfinish, from the Reel Sexy Collection, as a "soft candelit beige with multi-dimensional shimmer." They suggest that it is: a luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks, or an overall ultra-deluxe polish to the face. I don't always love all of MAC's Mineralize Skinfinishes-- I find many of them end up looking too frosty and unnatural on me-- with larger bits of glittery shimmery particles than I like to wear in a highlighting type of product. With that said, I am over the moon about Lightscapade. It is a gorgeous light cool pinky beige that is super finely milled and silky smooth. It applies like butter, and it offers the most beautiful sheen imaginable. The last MAC powder that had me this excited was undoubtedly Play It Proper Beauty Powder from the Chen Man Collection (reviewed here). I find this to be absolutely stunning on cool pale skin- though I do think that warmer skin tones could probably wear it as well since there is enough beige to balance out some of the cooler pink tones. It is quite light so I think that people with medium to dark complexions may not find it as flattering as an all-over highlighting powder, but applied with a very light hand it may prove to be quite flattering. I find that it offers an enchanting ethereal glow that does not look unnatural or harshly metallic. I honestly did not expect to like it that much- let alone love it, but I do. It is still available, though it is limited edition. However, this has been repromoted several times, and it is a popular shade- so if you miss out on it this time I wouldn't bother paying over retail for it on eBay because it is likely to be repromoted again.
