Brown and Blushin’ Series: Petticoat MSF

Good day, beautiful people! I bring to you a requested post from a reader who was just dyiiiiing to get my opinion on one of MAC’s newest collection. Obviously, I’m being dramatical again. :) MAC Cosmetics just recently released a collection called Sheer Minerals; a collection that I really had no interest in. Until of course I visited my girl Safia (MAC Pro Orlando, holla!). She sneakily slid the Mineralize Skinfinish in Petticoat ($25) in my hand.

“Um, what is this?” I inquired.

“You’ll love it,” she exclaimed.

LOVE is an understatement. As I watched her apply this velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish (source) on the BFF’s cheek bones, I knew I had to have it.

This baby just look amazing and I love it just as much if not more than my Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick in Brownie.

Petticoat is to the left, Bobbi Brown’s Brownie to the right.

Petticoat, still with its subtlety, manages to bring out a certain “POP” on my cheeks. And not with chunky glitter stuffs either. Here’s where I place it.

Yes, that’s an eyeshadow brush….and what? LOL! Yall know I keep it real.

Petticoat brings out those high cheekbones that I thought I DIDN’T have. It truly is amazing.

And yall just KNOW how I feel about multi-purpose items. I can see myself using this as a highlight and even a lid color. Definitely something worth checking out.

And in other news….look who has been inspired to some nail designs. This one’s for you, Nikki! China Glaze’s Avalanche is a fun gunmetal lavender and the crazy black swiggly lines give the nails some character.

Stay beautiful, fam!!

  • Apple Diva

    Petticoat is magical!!

  • rmcandlelight

    Petticoat is just beautiful on you! I may pick it up. You know the CCO have 2 different MSF I don’t remember the names but when I swatched them one to me looked just like petticoat and the other one was a goldie/bronze sheen to it. Since I’ve seen you at the CCO I can’t stay away from that place. (lol)I think I will pick those up from the CCO.

  • Tammy M

    Hmmm, I thought it swatched too light for me when I was at MAC on Saturday so I picked up So Ceylon….but now…I may have to go back and get it!

  • Alyssia

    Love, Love, LOVE the entire look! Petticoat is so prettiful =) lol. Love the polish… OH and i spotted Barack! Obama 08!!!!! lol.

  • Milan

    I think you’ve sold me on Petticoat. It looks AMAZING on you! *sigh* My wallet just isn’t happy with me right now…

  • Seymone

    U looking jazzy sis..

  • yummy411

    first i love the outfit.. are we twins in another life!? i wanted a denim vest though.. just couldn’t invest money on non-work clothes =( but! petticoat yes! i believe the 224 is an awesome brush for your cheeks esp to place a highlight or shimmery color like petticoat! use a regular brush and you might be disco dazzling!– not so purrdy. love the polish too. i’ll wear mine.. uhhh at some point LOL!

  • Product Junkie Diva

    You look Fab B….love the look. Your hair is looking lovely.
    Happy Wed.

  • B

    Wes–> Hey babycakes. That's just a little bronzer and a dark pink eyeshadow. I used a little matte black eyeshadow to add a little bit of depth.

    Sunshyne–> Thank you, lovely!

    Apple Diva–> Ain't it though? Sometimes I just sit there and stare at that thing. LOL!

    rmcandlelight–> Girl, you gon make me broke. LOL! Seriously–I haven't been back to that CCO since I saw you. Maybe I'll take a stroll this weekend. And there's a Perfumania right next too it? OMG..

    Tammy–> Yeah, I saw your post on it. Try it again. 😉 You may like it.

    Alyssia–> Thanks mama! Well you know…..just Ba'Rackin' the vote!! LOL! 14 days left..

    Milan–> It's okay, sis. My wallet pretty much hates me right now.

    Seymone–> Thank you!

    Yums–> Now you know we're twins in more ways than one. LOL! And you are too much of a pro. You knew that was the 224. And I'm so glad that you approve of my method. The 187 definitely had me shimmering.

    PJD–> Thank you, darlin'. Happy Hump Day to you too!

  • slvrlips
