My skin just started getting pretty oily. Granted, just in my t-zone, but it’s never really been a problem for me until this summer so I was freaking out. I had been looking for a high quality, effective finishing powder that wouldn’t leave me looking cakey or give me the annoying ashy flashback effect in photos…and I finally found it: MAC (MSF) Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark. How dost I love thee? Let me count the ways.
Where do I start? It is silky and smooth and melts right into your skin and/or foundation to create a matte finish that looks like skin. It never looks cakey! I use it during the day if my nose starts to get shiny, and it always does the trick. It’s super breathable and I never feel like it is heavy or thick. It is a great powder for photographed events as it leaves no flashback, but it still has a vibrancy that adds a health glow to any makeup look! This comes with a lot of product, so it’s well worth the price. On days when I am not feeling like foundation, lightly dusting this all over my face gives a great matte finish with just the right amount of coverage. This is a must have for sure.
I must say, I don’t have any. Perhaps for someone looking for more coverage, this powder could disappoint. But it isn’t really advertised as a powder foundation so much as it is marketed as a finishing powder so I don’t see that being a big issue. The price may deter some, as it did for me, but I am so glad I finally splurged because it is well worth it. It is actually pretty affordable compared to some of the other high end powders on the market.
With everything said, I have to say I LOVE this product and highly recommend it! I think everyone will definitely love it if they give it a try.
