MAC Star Wonder Mineralize Skinfinish: Review & Swatch!

MAC's new Heavenly Creatures collection hit stores last week, and while I tried very hard to resist, one of the mineralize skinfinishes got the best of me.  Star Wonder is a plummy rose with gold shimmer, and while I usually gravitate more toward matte/satin face powders, this one was too beautiful to pass up.

MAC releases a mineralize collection every summer, and I really love the theme of Heavenly Creatures.  All of the products have galaxy-like names, and the swirl designs in them really do look like planets/stars/nebulas/etc.

And now for a swatch!  How beautiful is this?!  The formulation is very true to other shimmery mineralize skinfinishes, the pigmentation is great, and the color is gorgeous.  The shimmer particles can be a little loose (as with most msfs), but otherwise I'm very pleased with it.  This suits me best as a blush, but if you have a deep complexion it may work as a highlighter!

MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes contain 7g/0.24 oz of product and retail for $29.  Star Wonder is currently sold out on MAC's website, but when I bought this at a counter a few days ago there were plenty left.  Also, be sure to check Nordstrom and Macy's online if you don't have a counter near you... they typically don't sell out as fast!

Did you get anything from Heavenly Creatures?
