i really wanted to love this for using it as a contour powder, i've seen many people use mineralized skinfinish natural's for contouring and i just bought it thinking i would like it without knowing how orange it looked on me when i used it to contour my face, now i'm left with so much of this and i don't know what to do with it, i currently just use this to bronze my skin and sometimes try to contour with it. i really regret buying this to use as a contour powder because it looks way too orange on me and doesn't even last on my skin at all, super disappointed.
i cant return this product because in singapore, MAC doesn't accept returns or exchanges. it sucks so much. but i used to use the medium plus MSF natural and i love it! i'll repurchase medium plus but not medium deep, i'm nc35 with neutral undertones and this is definitely not a good contour powder for me, ugh horrible.
So this is my first makeupalley review! I use this mineralise skinfinish as a bronzer and it leaves a beautiful finish! I use it with ecotools bronzer brush which works perfectly with this. I would definitely recommend this product.
Love it! On my fourth of this little baby! Sets foundation perfectly and has a beautiful glow! I love you MAC
Love it! I've re-purchased this product 3-4 times already! I use this as an over all finishing powder after I apply my liquid foundation. I prefer this product over any setting powder just because of the glow I get. For anyone debating if they should try it, I highly recommend it.
I like to use this as a blush rather than a setting powder. (As a face powder it makes my skin look really weird and reddish *buerk*) It gives my cheeks a nice healthy warm glow. Occasionally, I'll use it for contouring, but I prefer it as a blush.
The packaging is alright... it would be a lot better if it had a compact mirror and applicator, but I suppose that's okay since I don't use it much for it's intended purpose anyways.
love this stuff , never lets me down , always go back to it
i personally believe its good for all skin types and colours , no silly pieces of glitter in it , matt good staying power (i wont lie i will do a touch up halfway through the day ) and warms up my skin beautifully
This powder is magic powder. I bought this to set my liquid foundation when wearing heavier make up or to set my bb cream if I'm not wearing much make up. I can tell this stuff is going to last aaaaages. It's so sheer and doesn't leave my skin too sparkly, just a really nice finish. This is my like 5th purchase based on reviews on MUA and I am soooo happy - and addicted to this site! WHY OH WHY didn't they include a mirror and applicator?!?!?!! When I take it out with me I have to take an extra brush! :\
I have been using this product for years. I have light/medium skin, so I use this as a contour rather than an all-over finish.
I do not wear foundation on a daily basis, so along with my Studio Sculpt concealer in needed areas, I apply this as a contour and then a blush and highlighter on top.
In the summer months I will use this as a finish over my entire face. Beautiful colour that lasts all day long.
I use this on my clients as well, it is great for photographs and for everyday use.
Basically everyday I ONLY use this and the studio fix concealer in NW40. I put it all over my face with a kabuki brush for a nice matte finish. My usual makeup routine is but the concealer on then MSF. After that I put my Raizin blush on and either leave my lips natural or use Revlon SL lipstick "Berry Haute" PERFECT for woman of color or NW40-45 Skin:) For the price its not cheap and not THAT expensive compared to other high end brands. HG product RIGHT HERE! GET YOU SUM!
I love this powder, I actually bought it one shade darker and use it as a bronzer on my forehead, nose and tops of my cheeks. The mineral finish is sublime and when I finish my Cargo HD powder I am trading it in for this product. I use a large brush for application and I have slightly dry skin and I find this powder very moisturizing.
