Overall: The whole collection was ok. I only picked up a couple of items that I thought I didn't have yet. I got the Redhead MSF and Pincurl eyeshadow. Most of they eyeshadows were dupable from my opinion especially if you already have Sumptious Olive or Mink & Sable (Starflash) which almost similar to Henna. Flip, however, is gorgeous, but I already own too many variations of gold eyeshadows. You can pass up on Deep Shade if you already have Deep Truth while 100 Strokes looks like Expensive Pink except the latter is a bit more orange.
Femme-Fi is a repromote color from Neo-Sci Fi, so if you missed out on that color pick it up because it makes an excellent highlight color (or you can go to your nearest CCO and hunt the Neo-Sci Fi version of that).
As for the Mineralized Skinfinishes, I actually liked the Blonde MSF, but I feel like it's like any other pink blush once it goes on your cheeks. I chose the Redhead MSF because it can make a great highlight and would pair up nicely with a bronzer to give you that California glow. This collection's Mineralized Skinfinishes (MSFs) were a bit different from your usual swirled MSFs since it has four splits of color you can either use different ways or make your combination or use it all together. It's almost like a bigger version of the eyeshadows from the Red She Said collection, except in blush form.
The collection is also now available online at maccosmetics.com.
