|The 'Superhero' size packaging compared to Northern Lights MSF|
I was nervous about how this would look on my fair skin. Both Mineralize Skinfishes in this collection consist of three colours which you can use alone or blended together. It's easy to apply the colours separately, especially as the pan is large as you can hopefully see from the regular MSF comparison above. The colours in Golden Lariat are quite warm; there's an apricot coral with golden shimmer, a terracotta brown (satin) and a golden highlight shade with gold shimmer. Swirled together the colours produce a warm coral/tan shade on my fair skin.

In the pictures of the it applied, I concentrated the coral on the apples of my cheeks and the swirled the brush over the terracotta picking up a bit of the gold and brushed lightly from cheek to temples. I used a MAC 129 brush so the application is heavier than you will achieve with a duo fibre brush.
I was concerned that I might look overdone or that it would look too muddy on my fair skin. It's definitely more 'obvious' than I would usually go for but I was surprised how much I liked it in the photographs. I think it would work better for me paired with a warmer eyeshadow. I also think it would look stunning on darker skin tones.
I'll just leave you with a glimpse of my stylist for the 'shoot' and say thank you to my eldest for supplying his hand for swatches!
