I specially saved my first review for MAC Refined MSF despite having collected my favourite 50 blush/bronzers/highlighters just this year alone. This is from the Sugarsweet collection and I really love this because it is a beautiful orange-peach on my cheeks. It's not very pigmented though the texture is absolutely wondeful. And I took a lippie off as I have to use quite abit for it to show up.
I don't worry about it ever running out because I rotate my blushes & bronzers..

This if my first MSF I bought! I was sad because I joined the MSF love bandwagon really late but as I have come to realize...this is the only MSF I need. I have 12 MSFs now and I reach for this EVERYDAY! I am a huge blush/high light buff so to please me is a big deal. I am NW 35 and this color looks beautiful on my skin. I use it on all my best friends who are NC/NW 15-20 and it looks fantastic. This is an all around beautiful color that will give you that true J LO glow...try it !!!!!

I love love love this! My coworkers would ask what I used to give me such glow :) This is my first MSF and it goes well with my NC40 skin tone. I use this almost everyday :)

I'm in love with this!!! can you believe this is my first MSF!? i've never been really into them untill i read reviews for Refined. I lov how this color is not overtly glittery, it's just glowy and wonderful! the peachy tones complement my C3 just great! i use this with my 165 brush and it works wonderfully! i've been wearing it everyday since i got it!

This is probably my favourite MSF (I have Perfect Topping, Soft&Gentle and this one). It has no glitter in it, I would be disappointed if I got an MSF with loads of glitter in it cause it should be a highlighter silky and finely milled. This one has beautiful peach/gold veining in it. I really like it for summer and reach for this one the most. MSF's are quite pricey for MAC, but they are so lovely, why look for dupes? Get the real thing, you won't be disappointed.

So this is my first MSF so I can't compare it to others, but I do really like it. It doesn't have any chunky glitters and is subtle enough to use all over my face for a healthy glow.
update - I use it as eyeshadow too - the lighter pink color on my lids and the darker in my crease over a pink base and... wow!

This is such a great mineralize skinfinish. While some people complain that it doesn't even compare to some of the more original MSFs, I like this one because of how finely milled it is. So soft and velvety! Unlike the originals, it has just a tad bit of shimmer which makes your face glowy rather than sparkly. As I would recommend with ALL MSFs, go to the store or a counter to buy it. Every MSF is different. Some have more of a lighter color and more have more of the darker color. You have to choose which one would be PERFECT for your skin tone :)

I picked one with alot more of the light cream color and less of the dark. so on me (NC15) it works like a great highlighter. not too much shimmer.

I really like this a lot, the M/A used some of this on me the last time I was at the store. I didnt buy it then but ended up ordering it online later because I just had to have it. Its gorgeous and it just add such a nice pretty glow. Ive used this pretty much everyday since I got it. I love the fact that theres no glitter! Great product would def repurchase!

I think this has become one of my favorite MSFs. The best thing about it is that I can use it all over my face as the one I have is not heavily veined. It gives my face a super nice fleshy glow. When I touch my brush over the little amount of bronzey peach veins on it, I can also use it as a blush. I love this product because not only it's pretty but also it's very handy. I reach for it quite often since I bought it and this is new to me as I have so many other stuff waiting on line to be tried out for the first time. That should explain how much I'm pleased with Refined. (NW20 for reference).

LOVE this MSF. The color looks great on my nw15 skin, there aren't huge flecks of glitter in it, and it's so versatile. It is sort of similar to Redhead from BBR, but different enough to make it a worthwhile purchase. Refined has a much more subtle shimmer to it, and seems like a more polished version of Redhead. Refined is quickly becoming my go-to MSF.

Absolutely beautiful on my NC25 skin. A bronzy peach glow, not too shimmery. Safe for use on the eyes, so a great product for a running to the store face. I think it costs around $30, but it lasts forever, so price is not that bad. And I like that the compact has a clear lid so I can see the powder inside before I pick it up. I'd buy this product again, but won't pick up a backup because it might be back in repromote before I'm finished with it anyway.

I compared the two MSFs in this collection and I love Refined alot more. I have Blonde and Petticoat, so my pinks are covered. I am pretty tanned and this is so pretyt on my skin. The MA said I would probably get more use out of Refined and she was right. This is very pretty.It is different from Redhead but I love it. As little as my collection is, this has to be my favorite MSF so far. Go get this ladies before it's gone... :)

Love this MSF, it's my favourite by far.
MAC have redesigned the MSFs i think as the chunks of glitter are far more subtle in this one.
I purchased two from the BBR collection earlier this year and really regret it as i never use them, the glitter is far too chunky.
This MSF gives a nice subtle glow over blush or bronzer and it's almost impossible to go OTT with this.

Thanks to this product, I looked great in all my prom photos this year; this stuff contains light-reflecting pigments which make you look fab on camera. Wasn't too shimmery, and it really made me glow, but not artificial-looking or anything.I applied it with the MAC #129 brush, just on my cheekbones and on my chin. Ended up staying all night, even through the dancing! Too bad it's limited edition; if it ever comes out again I'll be sure to stock up.

I'm slightly lighter than NC-15 and I found that Refined looks orangey-red on me. It's a 'smooth' MSF - no annoying chunks of glitter that fall all over the place & I wanted to fall in love with it so bad.

Peachy!!! Glowy!!! Delicious!!! I originally bought Perfect Topping MSF when the Sugarsweet collection came out. Unfortunately, I didn't adore it as much as I thought I would. I kept hearing great things about Refined, but refrained from buying it, thinking that it was too close to Redhead MSF... boy was I wrong! I'm so glad that I finally crumbled and bought Refined! Mine is swirled with lots of coral throughout, and it leaves my NC20 skin with a yummy peach glow! ADORE!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Black
I purchased this thinking I got Perfect Topping. When I opened my bag at home, I was shocked that the sales lady mistakenly gave me Refined. I have tons of gold shimmer already & want a neutral/rose one. I tried it on anyway & find that it has a smooth texture, very velvety, unlike my Naked You, which has glitters galore! Overall, I think will occassionally reach for this product. But on my StudioFix NC20 skin, it just looks muddy & orange.

This is my favorite MSF! It's natural and complements my NC25/30 skin nicely. This is the only MSF that I have a backup of! And to the reviewer below, this isn't sold out online.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
it's really natural and pretty =) not glittery like the old msfs, it's more of a sheen as most MUAers have mentioned.
definitely my fav msf, would repurchase but its LE and all sold out =(
