MAC'S mineralize skin finish natural powder

MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural (Light) - £20.50

This is the first MAC product I have tried. I've always been a bit sceptical to MAC products as I would rather spend money on something in Boots/Superdrug for half the price which is near enough the same product. However, I've been won over now I've splurged out on something I wouldn't usually pay for. My favourite powder is around £3 from Collection 2000 and I swear by it but it obviously doesn't last all day. 

The MSF by Mac is a 10g pan of product in a dome shape packed with minerals to provide a natually dimensional illusion to the face. I've been using it for around a month now with the help of my kabuki brush by ELF. I find it works better with a kabuki brush rather than a normal powder brush as it picks up less product and just generally blends a lot better. 

The coverage is more than okay. It lasts longer compared to my holy Collection 2000 powder but it does need re-touching after around 5/6 hours, but that's not something that really bothers me. I expect that. I've heard the lightest shade of foundation would be too dark for me so I wasn't sure whether their 'light' shade in powder form would be the same, however it's a perfect colour match. It's really light in the form that it doesn't feel heavy on my skin. However saying this, it can look cakey if too much is applied which is why I prefer using the kabuki.

Overall, I'm glad I ventured out of my comfort zone and bought this. I would probably re-purchase. I now really want to try a few blushes and of course.. the lipsticks!

Can you recommend me any of your favourite MAC items?

  1. MAC lipsticks are great, so longlasting and feel fantastic to put on, really creamy, I love 'cremecup' , Thanks for sharing this review! I too use a collection 2000 powder and need a longer lasting one!

    1. I really want to try them but I only like matte lipsticks! Will have a look at the shades they offer in a matte finish though :)

  2. The downsize of this powder is the price, but I would gladly pay it as it's so great! Seriously the best powder I've ever tried, plus it lasts for months and months! Before, I would use Rimmels stay matte powder which would last for like a month at the very most, so I would rather just pay the money for MAC, and plus, everytime you finish one, keep the empties, and when you have 6 you can swap them for a free lippie obviously :)

  7. I really want to try it but I'm always unsure what shade to get, I need to get colour match, I would recommend you get your hands on the Cook Shop collection lipsticks. They have fantastic shades. x

    1. Best to get colour matched then. I took a complete guess and thankfully it was right. I really want to try the lipsticks from that collection! They look super amazing (:

  8. I really want to try MAC's MSF! I currently use Rimmel Stay Matte.
    Prepare to become obsessed/addicted with the lipsticks! I have 8 or 9 now but would have a hell of a lot more if money allowed me to!! Love them :)
