MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural: £20.50

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural is one of my all time favourite face products, Id probably go as far and say its Holy Grail material! I started using these about 3 years ago and bought religously it ever since. I've never used another powder I've liked as much. I've Back to MAC'ed so many of these its actually a little embarrassing going in with 6 empties purely of a face powder! MAC MSF's are finely milled domed powders which give a natural-matte finish. They can be used all over the face as a low coverage foundation or to mattify the skin throughout the day.

When I apply my make up in the morning I use this with a MAC 182 buffer brush (round topped kabuki) buffed in all over the face, I then spray it with MAC Fix+ to make it look less powdery. The Fix+ makes it look like it has more of a creamy/luminous finish and not as powdery. Also use this to top up during the day, but use a fluffy brush like a MAC 134 to mattify my t-zone. I wear Medium Plus as a all over powder, but I also use this in Dark as a Matt Bronzer. I like the darker powder as a bronzer as its matte and warm toned and blends really naturally with my regular face powder.


I find it gives good light coverage, sets my make up well and mattifys my skin. I do think it can look cakey if you apply too much, hence why I always spritz with Fix + and then use a fluffy brush to top up rather than a dense one so not to apply too much product. It gives a natural-glowy matte finish which looks gorgeous. I highly doubt I'll be buying anything other than this in the future! Its pricey at £20.50,although I have no problems paying that for this product as I think its worth it! Highly Highly! reccomend this product!

  1. I use this as well and have done for about 2 years! I don't wear liquid foundation, just this powder and it's safe to say it covers everything perfectly! Definitely agree with you when you say it's the ~holy grail~ haha! Definite 10/10 in my books!! xoxo

  4. Read a lot of positive reviews about this, I really want to try it. Just need to save up a bit first, MAC products are generally worth it though! x

  5. i think i bought this a few years ago and the make up artist gave me a colour far, far too dark for me. yet i applied it heavily like the fool i am and looked like such a tragic mess. although after hearing you praise it i may have to have a look at it again now i know how to actually apply makeup! (and go with a different MUA!)
