This Summer I started adding to my collection of highlighters in a bid to get a healthy subtle glow and this began with MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade.
Lightscapade is a baked pressed powder and my version is housed in the new packaging which is still the classic black and clear plastic but now with a smaller circle window offset in the lid. I feel that it is a lot sturdier but still prefer the appearance of the old packaging. Lightscapade is described by MAC as a "soft candlelight beige with multi-dimensional shimmer" and I along with others agree that this is the perfect highlight for paler skin. Each product is individually veined with blue, subtle coral and pale pink set in an overall light gold beige base that when swirled together creates a beautiful neutral glow to the skin. I like to use the Real Techniques Contour Brush to apply it to the top of my cheekbones and use the excess lightly on the centre of my nose and chin. The powder feels smooth to apply and is finely milled, without any prominent chunks of glitter. I do like to go in quite light handed though as I do feel it could be quite easily overdone. The wear time on me is a few hours but I really think this would depend on your base and skin type, mine has been quite oily over the Summer months.
I really do enjoy Lightscapade but think it will be a better highlight for me in the Winter months when I am a lot paler as I feel it will sit a lot better with my colouring. It is a truly gorgeous product to add to your collection though and I know that it will last me for a long time.
