I am NC50 and had used Deep Dark when I was NW47 but I hadn't found a new mineralize powder. The MA told me that this would be the best color and she was RIGHT. Its fabulous. A little goes a long way and gives a perfect finish to my skin.
Holy moly! Can you say ORANGE. I gave this 5 lippies because I really love this product. I just happened to listen to the SA and got the wrong shade. I love the finish andit very long wearing and has buildable coverage. I have super oily skin so to make this work for me this is what I did:
Apply a thin layer of milk of magnesia as a primer and then a thin layer of the Clinique pore minimizer. i didnt even have to blot my face later on in the day and that was so nice. The apply powder with a dense kabuki brush and buff in well.
i bought this thinking that i could use it as an overall foundation, according to the mac makeup artist. i went hope and used it and realized that there was shimmer in this, i have oily skin, so the fact that there was shimmer in it made it HORRIBLE. it looks exctly like ERA eyeshadow by mac, but in bigger form. i wouldnt recomend this to oily skined people.
Originally I went to mac to buy the Studio Fix powder, but the makeup artist suggested the Mineralize Skinfinish Natural for me in Medium Deep. She was so right! This is the most perfect powder I've ever used. I use it to set my foundation and it is perfect for the summer, since it is matte and lightweight. I have NC44 skin and this powder is AMAZING!!
I definitely recommend it! Oh, and I have oily skin mainly in the t-zone, and this powder really lasts all day (of course I still have to blot, but even when I don't blot my skin still looks fab!)
Its really funny how getting the wrong color can make you really HATE a product. I had this in Dark and absolutely hated it. The color was just SO off with me. Stopped using it. But when I went to the MAC counter today the MUA put this on me. And WOW. what a difference!! I love it. The most natural looking powder ever on me. Covers beautifully and gives my skin the most beautiful glow! Love it!
WOW, this thing is much better than expected!!!! I don't need to use foundation to make my face look flawless and glowy! I admit the staying power is not as good like when I put foundation first but for daily use, this rocks!!! When i am in hurry and I need a quickie make-up, this powder is a must. Boy does it make my face glowy instantly.
The only thing I wish that this comes with mirror...
It's definitely worth buying!
I bought this and was not too impressed because the coverage was on the light side. I like something with a little more coverage. So, I put it to the side and didn't really give it a second look for about 2 months. Then, my skin really cleared up from acne.org (thanks MUA) so I decided to give it another try. I find that I like it now. I'll use it on the weekends when I'm running errands or, I'll use it as a blotting powder for touch-ups. It is such a good color match that doesn't totally hide your skin (something I thought I would never say as an acne sufferer). And I've noticed that people always compliment my glow when I have this on, even though I can't really see it. A lippie off because there is no compartment for a sponge nor a mirror. Because it's simply powder, nothing as exotic as the name sounds, I'm kinda at a loss on the price. More than likely, though, I will repurchase for the color match. Update: Will repurchase in a darker shade for a better color match. A little light for my skintone (NC45/NW40 btw).
I LOVE it!! I put it on on top of my tinted moisturizer and it is SO light that i can't even feel it and i get a lot of compliments on how healthy my skin looks
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE
I bought this shade for a bronzer and contour, it's a true golden tan, I just love it! I wear Medium all over my face, and can't rave enough about how gorgeous my skin looks! Flawless...one of the best products MAC has ever produced IMO.
Everyone raves about MAC MSF's. They are truely a great product whether it is natural or not. I personally used mine as a setting powder on top of my MAC Studio Fix Fluid with spf for the greatest amount of full coverage. It adds warmth to my skin on top of the foundation and balances out my uneven skin tone. If you want a more sheerer coverage or skin imperfections is not a problem, you can also wear it alone. Helps sets my makeup in place with a nice smooth powder finish. It does come in a compact, convenient for portability to touch up whenever. Considering its MAC, and its a face product, you are getting a good deal considering there is a lot of product and it will last you some time.
