I'm new to the Mineralize line even though I've been a MAC fan for years. By pan appearance, it looks like it should be dark instead of deep dark but I've come to realize that a little bit goes a long way. I use this with a kabuki brush to set my tinted moisturizer and I love the slight glow that it gives off and doesn't distract my makeup look. With the release of the In The Groove collection, I've learned a lot about this line and picked up almost all of the mineralize skin finishes that can be used for highlighting or blush.
I use Deep Dark Skinfinish year round. It works for me.Makeup, for me, is something I have to try and buy and see what works for me. I use
- Revlon Colorstay foundation in Cappacuino (applied with a wet sponge).
- MAC concealer NW45 under eyes w/ a little moisturizer so that it doesn't crease.
- A touch of MAC Studio tech (creame foundation) on the cheeks and blend down to even my skin (since I have dark spots and do not feel like filling them in with concealer). I'm using NC50 even though it is not my color but a friend gave it to me-- it works for now. i use only a little.
- MAC Skinfinish in Deep Dark
Yes my skin is oily, it always will be, but the Color stay and MAC help. Just blot through the day and you'll be fine. You know the toilet tissue seat covers in your work bathroom? Use that to blot. It's the same as those blot sheets you would buy.
I touch up with Skin Finish when I need to look refreshed.
seriously, this stuff is the best. My boyfriend always says he doesn't like how I wear so much makeup but a couple weeks ago I was getting ready and I met up with him and he was like wow you look so hott. He's like your face it looks so good hes like you must have done something different. It was this. I say this is an HG for me. However, I do feel like it is a bit messy like the product gets all over the place when I dip my brush in it but I guess its because its mineralize product. LOVE.
Lovge it with a lil concealer. i put a round sponge in it though for touchups..and u can blot ur nose and chin as the day goes by.
I'm on the fence about this product. I used to wear it all the time and found that it made me look orangy in pictures. It appears to be too dark on my NC35 skin. Its highly pigmented so you have to be careful with how much you use. When I am tanned in the summer, I like to use this as a bronzer...will I buy this again, probably not. I'm sure this will last me forever since its a generously large size. I think I'll stick to regular MAC bronzer in refined golden for daily wear.
i am quite beige and medium fair, this product doesnt suit me because it's too dark,i thought it was great for contouring but i find out it's too dark for my skin and liking plus i look unnatural. Seems like i have to find another bronzer for contouring. But it stays long on my face.
im an nc45 girl. love love love this product for contouring, i use the dark as my usual powder which i love. great combo!!
This product blends with my Revlon Colorstay foundation perfectly. I wear 410 cappucino with Revlon and the Deep Dark for the MAC Msf. I would recommend this product to any brown girls!
I would definately buy this again and over and over again for that matter. Its so natural looking and i prefer this over the refined golden bronzer i own from mac, this, milani, elizabeth arden and iman have got to be my favorite bronzers of all time. I was going for a golden, bronzy kind of look today since its so hot , so i wore this today on my face with amberlights on my eyes, teddy in the waterline, some dipdown fluidline on my upper lids, i did appy lashes, a half set and a nude lip and i was straight sexy, my husband loved it. It works for dramatic looks also, i however can't use this as a face powder bc it's way to dark, so i set my foundation occasionally with the medium dark one which i absolutely love.
I LOVE this product. I use it just about everyday. I have a hard time finding a powder that doesn't make me look ghostly in pics or like my make up it too light or dark. I love this the slight sparkle gives you an inner glow.
