My Experience with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
Mineral makeup is said to be perfect for acne prone skin, but I never got around to trying them till I got my hands on MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. Before I start off the review I can’t say enough about how much I love makeup as gift 😀
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is a very lightweight finely milled mineral power. It comes in a standard all black MAC packaging. Unfortunately it doesn’t come with an applicator or mirror. This isn’t a hot button issue as this product applies better with a brush and is not meant to be a replacement for a compact. I find MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural perfect for setting in my foundation or even a BB cream. The mineral powder disappears into my skin leaving a smooth almost matte feeling. The powder is not great for zapping oil and it does leave a bit of sheen on the face, but that’s what gives your skin an almost natural look. It doesn’t last all day long but makes for a perfect setting powder, which somehow seems to make my pores almost vanish.
My skin is slightly sensitive and there are some products, which tend to irritate my skin or break me out. But MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural was perfect and being mineral based it didn’t irritate my skin in anyway. The only downside I see is the price, but this will literally last you ages. With 17 shades to choose from, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is a must in anyone’s’ makeup collection.
