This year Black Friday (2021), I wanted to grab a few cosmetics, and for that, I was setting my eyes on emails for discounts, and guess what! I got 50% off on MAC face products. Finally!
That was a moment I could not hold back my temptation to grab Mac mineralize skinfinish powder, after seeing so many good reviews. So I ended up ordering Mineralize Skinfinish Highlighter and Mineralize skinfinish natural powder.
But today, let’s talk about MAC Mineralize skinfinish natural powder.
My views on mineralize skinfinish natural powder
Mac describes it as “A luxurious, slow-baked, domed natural face powder with low-level pearlized pigments – M∙A∙C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural provides a dimensional yet natural finish. This baked powder can be used alone, to set the foundation and touch up makeup throughout the day”.
I bought the shade medium-plus. Now I don’t know what’s slow-baked means, but I could understand the texture and its efficiency after using it.
So first, I tried it on its own, as foundation powder. I could see the beautiful natural sheer coverage powder blending into my skin flawlessly.
I really like its result. The lightweight formula provides the “pretty face” look but not the “no-makeup” look, hope you get my point. As I always mention on my blog posts about my acne problem that keeps coming off and on, and that’s the reason I could see some prominent marks/dark spots on my skin peeking through it. So this powder will probably work best as a setting powder instead of using it as a (foundation powder). Moreover, it does not settle in the fine lines/wrinkles that make me a happy customer 😀.
It could be a great choice as a powder foundation for those who encounter very few acne issues in their lifetime. Again, it is a sheer coverage powder, so one can not expect full coverage, or for that matter, any flawless result.
For me, I am going to use it as a setting powder. I am glad that sheer coverage won’t change my foundation color. I have been using Too Faced setting powder for a while. So now I can say that MAC mineralize would be my next go-to face powder to lock my look for the day.
However, my biggest concern is the dome shape of the powder. It gives me a real hard time swirling around the brush to pick up the product, especially a big fluffy face brush. I could see that it picks up more product than needed, and during the process, some of the powder disperses in the air that gets utterly out of hand. However, I am trying to make it work.
I see this setting powder, a lot better option than spending on loose setting powders that sometimes could result in time-taking work. So I would highly recommend MAC Mineralize skinfinish natural powder to my friends and family. Being said that, kindly make sure you choose the right shade. My shade is NC 35 in MAC studio fix foundation. So medium-plus shade is a perfect match for me. In addition, you can use it as a bronzer by selecting a deeper tone shade according to your skin tone.
Last but not least, it is not a “Matte finish” powder, so ladies with oily skin type, please be aware! Especially in summer, so I would say, try before you buy.
Otherwise, it is a very great product to splurge on.
It’s retail price is $37 (USD) for 10 G / 0.35 US OZ.
Hope you find this post helpful.
