Most Used. Most Repurchased.

Oh Hello there unsung hero. As I opened a brand spanking new MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder and marvelled at its beauty I realised I hadn’t given it the airtime it deserves. It’s probably my most used, most repurchased piece of make up.  It’s also sporting a chic little make over! In case you hadn’t noticed, MAC recently changed the packaging of its Mineralize Range. If I’m honest, I wasn’t a fan at first. Have you ever seen fake MAC products kicking around the markets of Egypt or Greece? Well that’s exactly what it reminded me of. I liked the old packaging with the see through window, but I’m over it now and I will admit the mirror is a welcome edition.

Packaging rant aside, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, you’re my kind of powder! I’m all about the natural, dewy base and this is the first powder that doesn’t mask it. Ideal for “setting” foundation! And I don’t mean set like concrete, more finish it off and make you look done. I use shade Medium Plus which suits my skintone (MAC NC25-30 for reference) perfectly. Described as a "Tan Beige" it's quite light and neutral. It’s fairly sheer and won’t change the colour of your foundation and its mineral pigments and natural-matte finish make it lightweight enough not to cake or mask your look! It does however add a little extra coverage and can be worn alone like a mineral foundation. After foundation application I lightly dust it all over my face paying attention to the Tzone. Aside from setting the foundation and reduce any obvious shine, it has an almost airbrushing effect leaving behind a flawless, glowing sheen - think Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders but a hella lot cheaper. See it in action in my All About That Base feature.

  1. I adore my MAC MSF powder, but I didn't realise until the other day that it has glitter particles in it x


  2. I am in love with the MSF range, and I was the same when it came to the new packaging as I loved the clear window of the old product so you could see what you had left, but love the addition of a mirror :)

  4. I've never tried it, but it really sound wonderful! xo

  5. This is one of my most repurchased items too! I always feel like my most used products get overlooked. I wasn't a fan of the new packaging at first either, it seems a lot more bulky but I like the addition of a mirror. xo

  6. I am yet to try the MAC MSF Natural's but they are right at the top of my list to try next. I feel like I still haven't found my favourite powder yet. x
