A Mineralize Skinfinish dupe?

I think so!

I am talking about the Famous by Sue Moxley Baked Bronzers. Now these are baked, just like the cult favourite MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes. They come in four shades if I remember correctly and can be used in a number of ways depending on your skin colour.

I currently have the one in Miami shade 1, which I assume is the lightest of the four. The product comes in an unusual yet intriguing screw top jar. It reminds me a bit of vintage make-up. 

The shade I have can only be used as a highlighter or all over face glow on my skin tone and on any skin tone to be honest. It is a gorgeous warm champagne colour and it brightens the face immediately in a subtle and natural manner.

Unlike the Mineralize Skinfinishes, these are not frosty and keep clear of any chunky glitter, making it much more wearable on a daily basis. They have a rather satin-like smooth finish to them, which works just well at overlooking those pores. 

They have a very subtle veining-like effect going through them if you see closely. 

This particular shade may resemble 'By Candlelight' and 'Soft and Gentle' by MAC a little bit in case you want to make a comparison. 

You get 9 grams of product for £6, compared to MAC where you get 10 grams for £20.50. I agree these are not as metallic or overpowering as the Mineralize Skinfinishes, but if you have been looking for a dupe since long, this has to be the ultimate answer. 

I have my eyes on the shades Bali and Tahiti now. You can get these at Superdrug.

Very pretty! I'm a big MSF fan myself and this looks quite lovely. Another dupe-worthy product is Milani's baked blushes.

Oh, I'm insanely jealous right now! I love the Sue Moxley Famous range but my local Superdrugs don't stock it anymore! xx

I have the same one as you, but unfortunatley it doesn't really show up on my skin. I wanna try the darker shades though!

These look lovely <3 I imagine they'd look amazing used as powder since they're not that shimmery, or maybe just over the cheeks and forehead for a little glow :)
