Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Review

Hello everyone,

Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Mac Mineralize Skinfinish.
I bought this powder in 'medium dark' this usually costs around £20 but I actually got this product for much cheaper from a website called Fragrance Direct  I paid just £14!

What Mac say about this powder:
 'A luxurious domed face powder with minerals, slowly baked to provide a dimensional yet natural-matte finish. Provides perfect low coverage. Use to set and fix foundation or as a touch-up throughout the day.'

What I think:
I have been using this for just over a month and I agree with what Mac say. My skin looks so flawless after I've used it. I use this as a setting powder to set my foundation and so far I think it is extremely good!

I have oily/combination skin so I like to use two different powders, I use a mattifying powder by Rimmel that is specifically designed to combat shine on my t-zone and then use the Mac Mineralize Skinfinish on the other parts of my face. I find that by doing this it helps to keep my skin looking matte and shine-free for longer and because this powder is so fine and smooth it applies evenly and leaves the perfect amount of coverage on the skin.

As well as having oily skin my skin can also be very sensitive at times but this product hasn't broken me out! Huge bonus!

  • lightweight
  • fine powder
  • easy to blend 
  • natural-looking

  • quite expensive

For me I think this product is quite expensive for what it is, however I do think Mac products are high in quality and you definitely get what you pay for!

Have you tried the Mineralized Skinfinish powder? Leave a comment below and tell me your thoughts!

  1. I have got this but it's sadly a little orange for me, think I needed the medium :(

  2. I have been using this exact MSF for over a year and I love it! It is so lightweight...sometimes I put it on alone or sometimes I use it to set my foundation.
    Great Post!

    You have a new follower Hope You Stop By

  7. I have been wondering whether to try this powder, but unfortunately i suffer from really dry skin so i am hesitant as to whether it would look cakey or patchy! Specially for such a high price, it's a mighty big risk if i ended up hating it :/

    Lots of Love, Ana

    PS: After your review of the Perfection Blender, i thought about giving it a go. But to my misery, it was out of stock and it has been ever since! Haha i literally wanted to scream "Noooo" when i saw the empty rack :(

  8. I really like MAC products.
    it's great quality and I love their collections. Looks like a great bronzer.
