I don't know a lot about Make Ups and I just started wearing them recently.
This is the first ever pressed powder that I bought. I usually wear Asian bb creams that only has one colour that is verrrryy light. So I searched online to find a powder that would give me more coverage and that will match my skin tone better,I also wanted mineral products because I heard that they are better for acne prone skin. I found this product after weeks of searching through the internet (I seriously spent weeks, I only buy products that have reaaally high reviews cause I do not like wasting my money). The reviews were high and a lot of people praised this product so I decided to buy it.
I was going to buy the product directly from their website but since I'm a newbie in make up I wasn't too sure about the "shade". So I went to a department store and asked the girl working there which colour would match me, she gave me medium deep. The product looked so natural, it looked like I was not wearing anything. It matched my skin tone so much and made my skin look so pretty. I immediately bought the product.
It would have been perfect if my story ended with that but alas after using this product 3 to 4 times my skin started to break out. People around started to notice that my skin is getting bad.This was the only product that was added unto my routine. I'm extremely disappointed because I wanted to buy mineral products because I have acne prone skin. There were also several people who told me that they had a similar experience with other MAC products
tl;dr: Although, the product looked very natural. It gave me break out.

I love this. My skin is NC45 and the Dark was too dark for me so the MAC girl suggested this. It's so perfect. I get compliments at work about how beautiful my skin is and I have not the greatest skin (acne and dark spots) this covers it perfectly and looks natural :)

One word I can describe this item - HEAVEN.
It's so smooth and silky and just perfection. I actually use it as a bronzer as I have fair-medium skin so it's not used for the normal sense. However! I just am absolutely obsessed with it. I use a simply powder brush and apply it to my cheeks and just gives me a heavenly glow. Not to mention, it lasts forever! It's such fantastic quality and feels like it just "hugs" your skin.

i love this stuff! the packaging is nice because it's very compact and i love that for travel. the color medium/deep goes well with my skin tone. i have olive skin, and it's a pretty close match to my color. it's pretty pricey, around $30. but it's so worth it. it's the best powder i've ever tried (besides my covergirl translucent powder). it's so great, it has full coverage, and is a matte powder. i love using this especially for those days where i need extra coverage. it's so great. and i'd recommend it for everyone.

I should have bought this before I bought Chanel Les Beiges because this powder gives me that 'bonne mine' look I wanted from Les Beiges. It's also less expensive too. Lesson learned.
I looked at my current collection of bronzers and I wanted something that wasn't an obvious bronzer colour now that winter is approaching.
I love the texture and finish of the MSFN powders so I tried on the Medium Deep and loved that very subtle glow it gave me. I use Medium Plus as a finishing powder when I use liquid foundation so the Medium Deep was a natural choice to give me that extra bit of colour for those days when I need it. Plus it would work in the summer when I get more colour on my face.
For those days when I'm in a hurry, I'll fluff on MAC Studio Fix powder foundation and then apply the MSFN in Medium Deep in the regular areas where bronzer would be applied and I instantly look refreshed and healthy in a natural, subtle way.
If you're wanting the bonne mine look or you're afraid of bronzers, I recommend the Medium Deep MSFN, especially for warm skin tones. (my complexion is Asian, NC30/C3)

I use this (VERY LIGHTLY) over my MUFE matte velvet, then use UD De slick setting spray. OMG, I get people to tell me my makeup looks flawless all the time. I use Mac's 134 powder brush to set my matte foundation with this Skinfinish powder because I have SUPER oily skin, and don't have time to check on my makeup throughout the day. I can barely tell its there when I apply it, but throughout the day face just looks better and better. I l love this stuff. I recommend trying in the Mac store, then wear all day. If you like, purchase it but give it 24 hours before making a choice. This stuff is too expensive not to try before purchasing. At least that's what I did...

This powder is a joke. I used to use this as my foundation in college and either it was a much better product then or I didn't know how to do my makeup properly. I noticed many people use it over liquid foundation, I definitely think there are better options.
I am NC42 and I used this is Medium Deep. It turned red on me by mid afternoon and had no oil control whatsoever (I have dry skin btw). Not only that, but when I removed my makeup that night, I had these tiny, irritated, red bumps on places I don't normally breakout. I'm beginning to think I have a talc allergy because it all the powders I've used so far with Talc as the main ingredient have given me similar bumps.
In any case, even if you don't have sensitive skin like me there are so many other powders that you could use instead of this.

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.
