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.
I really wanted to like this product. I used this to set my foundation and it gives such a wonderful satin look. I noticed that it is only after I use this powder where my skin gets irritated and red. I stopped using this for awhile and my skin is much better. I will only use this for special occasions when I want that satin finish. This may work well for others but just didn't work out with my skin.
I love this product!! I'm NC20/30 depending on the time of year, but I use it as a bronzer. I hate bronzers with shimmer in them and this has a satin finish, its perfect. It's not too heavy and leaves a really natural looking colour. I will definitely continue to buy this as a bronzer.
im nc37 and this color was MUCH TOO DARK. i tried it with my beauty blender alone and over studiofix fluid. alone, the color didnt look as bad and i really liked the texture, over my studiofix it looked blotchy, which was probably because i have the wrong color. so right as i though "oh i'll go back to my mac counter tomorrow, the girl there just made a mistake" i dropped the product (lid closed) and it barely tapped the countertop when it TOTALLY CRUMBLED. im thinking, even if i get my color properly matched tomorrow, im not sure if i want to spend $25 plus tax for a product im deathly afraid breaking. it;s really really delicate,, :( shame cause i loved the texture (and was looking for something to wear alone on more casual days) but quite frankly i feel more secure with my blot powder and SFF. so in summary, DO NOT PURCHASE UNLESS YOU ARE VERY GENTLE WITH YOUR PRODUCTS. if you travel or tend to jostle your cases and bags about, this is not for you.
