This powder is a dream for drier skins. Its easy to apply and the finish is satiny. However, this broke me out (surface breakout) just after two days of use. I also found it a little bit pink for my skin, but I believe that it was just wrong choice of shade.
Of course, I had returned it and will not repurchase.
This powder was pretty expensive for just a powder. When I first tried it I really liked it, it did not make me look cakey and it appliled well. This powder did not mattify my face. I have combo skin and my t-zone was a little oily that day and after I applied it my face still looked oily, witch I did not like. If you have super oily skin or if you get sweaty though out the day I would not reccomend this product, but if you have dry skin and you don't get that oily this would work for you. I also found that there was SO much fall out when ever I used it so it felt like I was wasting it! Over I did not like this powder that much but it was OK! Thanks for reading I hope this helped!
i have been looking for a replacement for my studio fix powder nc20 and i just love this powder i use medium as its not too dark or too light i use it instead of foundation and just touch it up with MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder/pressed with MAC'S 187 brush if your looking for more coverage i would say use a kabuki brush,overall it provides good coverage and makes me look flawless and its great for on the go its also very natural looking and not cakey at all if you have oily skin its perfect as it mattes the skin for a long time
I wanted to like this, I really did! The SA put it on over my my foundation and it looked amazing, so I bought it on the spot. By the next morning my jaw was really itchy and then in come coming days the skin became dry and lumpy and it spread upwards to my cheeks. However I don't like giving a bad review solely based on an allergic reaction as that's not always helpful. My big gripe is that this container has no space for a brush/sponge. Macs mineralize foundation had a compartment complete with mirror, but this doesn't.
This is my go-to everyday powder. This doesn't offer a ton of coverage, but I like that quality about this. For me, I can use it on top of a liquid foundation to set it, or I can use it as a "My-Skin-But-Better" powder for a quick sweep. I don't have problematic skin, so I can get away with doing that. If you have a lot to cover then I don't recommend using this product by itself. I have oily skin, but this seems to last fairly well on me throughout the day. It has a nice price point for the quality of the product. It lasts a super long time, too! The packaging is quite decent.. I've dropped mine countless times and it's never cracked the packaging or product. I would definitely give this product a thumbs up and will repurchase again.
I have this in Light.
Mac MSFN is a sheer, natural looking powder. I really like it for a stand alone powder over concealer or as a setting powder. I have pretty good skin, and i don't get oily. I like a more natural look-this gives me exactly that.
Will repurchase. Only wish it would come with a mirror.
For reference I'm NW15-20.
Hope this was helpful!
I purchased this over a year ago and have taken that long to decide on my review. About me:
I'm an NW25 with large pores on the skin nearest my nose, I have a tendency toward redness and oil in the t-zone and pigmentation around my mouth. I've never been able to wear liquid foundation. Everrrr! Why am I so pleased with Mineralize Skinfinish?:
-it looks and feels natural (remember- I don't like wearing makeup!)
-when applied on its own & with a light hand, the product does not cake or crease into fine lines
-it absorbs oil and I don't need to retouch during the day
-my skin honestly looks smooth and healthy. Basta.
-the color suits my skin very well, but as I read in another review, be sure to test products out at MAC before purchasing...I've been very disappointed lately and feel like the SAs don't really care to help me and/or if I'm going to buy something.
- note: I don't wear this in the summer & so cannot comment on how it works in heat & humidity
So all in all, I would highly recommend Mineralize Skinfinish, especially for those of you who dread wearing foundation. You'll look polished and lovely without feeling made up.
I have always found matte bronzer to look dirty when I put it on but this one is lovely, it goes on smoothly and blends well. The colour is natural and I think it's going to last a long time!
I was an NC45 few summers ago...I was given this in Medium-Dark...within a few weeks, it was too dark on me (NC43)...so i began to use it as a bronzer. That didn't work for me either. It just looks too cakey on my makeup. And it highlights pores more than any other powder foundation I've used. Well, with sparing use over 2 years (jus cuz I paid good money for it!) I'm finally about to hit t bottom of t pan and will not be purchasing again! The packaging is sleek and strong and its nice that the base of the compact is the same colour as the powder so it doesn't look that bad when its nearly over.
I bought this after I thought the reviews were good and was looking for a light mineral powder. It has majorly broken me out big time. I have huge big zits all over my chin and I'm really upset as my skin has been good for months!
