Hi Guys,

Mineralize Powder Foundation
"So MAC finally caught onto the mineral makeup craze. I do love the mineralized skin finish natural in medium dark so I'm assuming I would be medium dark in this line as well. I've struggled to find a mineral makeup that has truly matched my complexion. I might have the makeup artist test this one out on me. However, I know that many of you ladies can vouch for the fact that many of the independently run mineral sites are already on point with their mineral makeup. This line is permanent at MAC stores so no rush...save up for Fafi!)

February 7th 2008 - Nordstrom

UNK [international]

The color details are as follows:

Mineralize SPF Powder Foundation (Loose) $29. USD

Facts and Tidbits about this newest Foundation launch:Mineralize Powder Foundation is medium-buildable coverage depending on the brush you use. #150=medium, #190/#191=fuller. You can change the finish. originally natural/natural matte, but the more you buff, the more satin-y the finish becomes. Mineralize Powder Foundation comes with a sponge-top applicator, called the “capplicator”. It is a sock-covered latex sponge (same as sponges sold at mac) applicator. 2 replacement socks come with the foundation. The socks apply and blend foundation in to the skin softer and smoother. DO NOT use the capplicator sponge without the sock. it gets dirty and cannot be replaced. Mineralize Powder Foundation a long-wearing foundation (6 hours). Mineralize Powder Foundation contains wheat germ and vitamin e, which is makes it ideal for dry skin. It has been posted that BE is not liked among the dry skin population. This is the opposite. it doesn’t cake onto dry flakes. Both UVA and UVB protection. Mineralize Powder Foundation tends to run darker than the MSFNs. Mineralize Powder Foundation is LE at partnered locations, but permanent at MAC stores.

Strobe Collection
March 6th 2008[US/Canada]
UNK [international]

"I have Strobe Cream and love wearing it under foundation. It makes my mineralized satinfinish foundation turn into HyperReal foundation...honestly, you don't need both! For those of you who didn't like the way strobe cream made you look like a disco ball the strobe liquid might be for you. Personally, I think i'll be taking a look at the tinted lip conditioners."

* Strobe Cream -
Brightens and clarifies with iridescent particles and antioxidants. Enhances the effects of light on all skin and in all lighting conditions from sunlight to spotlight. (Repromote) $29.50USD

* Strobe Liquid -
Strobe liquid in similar to oil control lotion in texture. It has smaller pearlized pigments to it than strobe cream, and it lacks the strobe cream fragrance and moisture time-release system. It provides a softer glow to the skin. it is more candlelight illumination, where strobe cream is more stagelight illumination. (Perm) $29.50USD

Tinted Lip Conditioners SPF15 (these contain the strobe pearl)
Strobe Kiss - Sheer coral with golden strobe pearlized pigments.
Strobe Rays - Light caramel with golden red strobe pearlized pigments.
StrobeBlossom - Light blue/pink with red strobe pearlized pigments.
Strobe Current - sheer plum with golden red strobe pearlized pigments.
Strobe Beam - clear with strobe pearlized pigments.

Beauty Powder Blushes

"I definitely want to try this out...it sounds so pretty, and I don't even own any beauty powders besides Drizzlegold which I've seemed to abandon :( I probably won't go crazy and get all of them or anything because I honestly don't wear blush that often...but I might pick up one or two. The fact is that these blushes sound fantabulous...and with pearlized pigments? You won't even need to layer an MSF over your blush...I can't wait!"

March 13th 2008[US/Canada]
UNK [international]
Beauty Powder Blushes:
A micronized powder blush with a subtle pearlize pigment, 8 new shades and 2 repromoted brushes (details on brushes shortly).
Shy Beauty - Pastel apricot with gold pearlized pigments. (LE)
Feeling - Plum with silver pearlized pigments. (LE)
Sweetness - Intense blue pink with pealized pigments. (LE)
Joyous - Peach with gold pearlized pigments. (LE)
True Romantic - Mid-tone pink with silver pearlized pigments. (LE)
Serenely - deep brownish red with gold pearlized pigments. (LE)
Eversun - neutral peach bronze with gold pearlized pigments. (LE)
Secret Blush - Neutral plum with gold pearlized pigments. (LE)

These are different [than Beauty Powders]. they are a blush, so they have a bit more color to them, but they do have that luminous pearl to it that the beauty powders have. They are like the pressed beauty powders, but with more color.
