One of the powders that I use on a daily basis is the MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Natural in Light:
Packaging: A 10g powder compact. However, what you see here is actually the old packaging (I’ll have another powder with the new packaging coming out soon) Whilst the new look and feel is a lot more stylish, I did like the fact that with the old packaging it was possible to see what shade you had as the lid was see-through, and is now an all solid-black lid.
MAC lovers – What are your thoughts on this change in packaging?
Shade: As mentioned above, this is the shade in Light. I tend to use this only to set my under eye concealer as it keeps it lighter than the rest of my face, however this is great to use all over the face if you are fair skinned. As I use it mostly on my under eye, I love using my Real Techniques Setting Brush and I find it fits this area perfectly.
Texture: The texture of this is just so beautiful! It’s so soft and velvety and blends in effortlessly in the skin leaving it looking soft and natural.
Cost: I got this about a year ago from the online store for £22.00 / €30.00, however as of today it seems that this have gone up to £23.00 / €31.50.
Verdict: For me, this is one of the best powders I have ever used! In fact, it is one that I use every day as it never lets me down. I love the soft, natural look it gives to the skin without making it look dry or flaky. When I use it all over my face it prevents my skin from getting oily, and keeps my foundation or BB cream on all day without fail.
When using it to set my under eye concealer, it keeps the concealer staying lighter than my foundation* and doesn’t cause any creasing or fine lines. Definitely one to try out!
*I deliberately use a concealer that is lighter than my foundation to highlight the under eye area. By using a powder that’s light, it keeps it that lighter colour and prevents it from oxidizing and getting as dark as my foundation.
