Good powder to use to set a foundation. Sometimes i even use it with no foundation and its nice for hiding minor blemishes. A little goes a long way with this product, not much needed, texture is smooth and looks natural on the face.
I'm on my fifth skin finish and I plan to buy more. After having negative experiences with bare minerals I decided to try this one and I'm glad. It is sheer but it evens out my skin tone and I don't look to made up it does oxidize but not like their other foundations. If I want more covergae I use fix+ on my brush then add the powder. The only downfall is that it doesn't have spf.
I love mineralize skin finishes I use mine year round it looks natural and if I want more coverage I use my fix+ . The only downside is that this is the darkest color and it can start too look orange on me especially in the winter.
Breaks me out!!! No other msf's do this , but this one
This powder makes me love any liquid foundation I hated previously. It is the most essential step to fabulously, flawless makeup!! I never had an HG product before, but this is definitely it!!! I can't live without this in my life.
For a pressed powder, this is pretty expensive, I think I paid about $28, which is about $20 more than I normally pay for pressed powder (I'd been using cover girl.) But, I've decided to graduate to more high-end makeup for the daily basics, and I'd heard great things about MAC. I got this in NC40 (medium-dark) and it is a perfect match. I love the finish, it goes on velvety smooth, but doesn't look at all cakey or powdery when it's on my face. I haven't suffered any breakouts in the week I've been using it, and it keeps my T-zone oil free (my skin is combination/normal- in the summer the T-zone can get shiny, but other than that, I'm pretty grease free.) I'm pretty impressed with this powder, and will probably continue using it. The size seems to be larger than my old Cover Girl powder, and I like the domed shape, as it's easier to swirl my brush through without powder flying around.
A good buy, if you don't mind the price.
I would say this is my HG bronzer right at the moment. I got lucky and got this in a swap. I use this almost everyday. It has shimmer in it but it's not overpowering like some. I will repurchase this. I'm an NC40 skintone for reference
Bought this and have been using it for roughly 6 months or so. At first Ioved it, but when I apply it on top of my foundation, it gives it this weird orange cast. The color range on these is lacking and Im also def too dark for thier darkest shade. Maybe for someone that is lighter this will owrk better. I hate to admit it, but it just doesnt work for me. I have this in Deep Dark, its up for swap now, anyone that wants it, let me know, just send me a message.
This is my primary setting powder now. Looks gorgeous on my brown skin and leaves a slight glow that I love. I wear it on a daily basis. This WILL be the 1st product I ever "hit pan" on.
I will buy this as long as MAC makes it!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product. I use it all year around especially during the summer it gives the perfect glow. It does wonders by making your skin look smooth and silky. Love it with my studio sculpt concealer in NC50. If you have oily skin like myself and you find that you are using blot tissue and or powder during the day use Milk of Magnesia on the oily areas in your skin and I promise you, you will go all day without pulling one tissue out of your purse. The application of this is flawless if used with a kabuki in a buffing motion. I go through 3 of these a year, thank god its permanent.
