The Best Finishing Powder

Hello Loves,
I shared with you earlier this year my first experience at the MAC store in Sovereign and mentioned that I had picked up MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Deep Dark and  after using it for nearly three months I wanted to share my thoughts on the product....

Shade: Deep Dark

Product Features: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is a mineral infused, baked face powder that offers low coverage however it can be either  worn on its own or worn over foundation as a setting/finishing powder.This product comes in a range of shades to compliment a variety of skin tones.
Swatched and Blended

 Overall Experience: Let me be the first to say that this product is not cheap as I paid  little over JA$3000, however I have no regrets as each pan contains 10 grams of product and I definitely get value for money.This product does not offer great  coverage and thus if you are blessed with really great skin and don't require a lot of coverage you can get away with wearing this powder on its own, or with a little concealer underneath.Personally I don't use this product for coverage but  instead to set my liquid foundation and this gives my makeup the polished look I desire without the ashy/powdery finish that some powders give. I adore this powder as it gives me a wonderful healthy glow without looking shiny and the coverage can be built up without looking cakey. Being a beauty blogger one would think that I am a product junkie but that's definitely not the case as I tend to stick to products that  are effective and honestly I can't see myself using any other product to set my foundation as the shade is a perfect match and the finish offered  is impeccable and I would definitely recommend it.

Is Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural  one of your holy grail products?
Let me know below


  1. This is certainly a long term favorite of mine. I remember I purchased my first one in 2007 and never looked back.

    Mind you in that time frame I have only bought 2, shows how much make-up I actually use lol.

    I actually now own the deep dark in the loose powder format which works just as lovely.

    I use it to set foundation and also wear it on it's on during the day.

  2. I've tried MAC MSF in the past and I didn't fall in love with it. In fact, I still have the barely used compact in my makeup stash and its been well over 3 years. I've thought about giving it another try to see if it was a fluke. But it really makes my skin oily for some reason. I like the initial finish. But, of course, it doesn't last more than an hour or so.

    Glad you found your holy grail for setting your foundation. Once you find something that works, I always still with it.

  3. I've used it. It breaks me out. However, it is very popular and does give a beautiful finish.

  4. I love the MSFNs! I have been using the Sephora powder lately though


I sincerely appreciate all your comments.
