MAC Skin finish

After toying with MAC products in the past such as their Studio Fix foundation and their Select Sheer Pressed powder and being more 'oh ok' this is alright rather than the praising the heaven's that I have finally found my holy grail product that I simply cannot live without. I decided to try a few more products that MAC have to offer.

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Light £21

After my friend spent a fortune on MAC goodies in an airport in America and vowed that MAC had changed her life, I decided to jump on the bandwagon. Picking myself up the MAC Mineralize Natural Skin Finish powder on a pre-Christmas shopping trip, I was pleasantly surprised.

Opting for 'Light' shade, it matched my skin colour perfectly and offered a light dusting over my YSL foundation of choice, Touche Eclat anyone? i have found that dusting a light layer of powder over the nose, cheeks and chin offers a delicate matte finish that does not dry out the skin or make your complexion dull. One dust is all you need to take a dewy finish to a slightly mattified look. You can add more if you wish to have an all over matte finish without ending up with the all too familiar 'caked on' look.

The product comes in an array of shades too suit all skin shades and can be used just as well on it's own for a quick make up touch up. The packaging is typical MAC. Black plastic casing, simple and straight to the point. It stays clean in the bottom of your make up bag and that is good enough for me.

This product cost me £21, but in my opinion was worth the money. After using a MAC powder in the past, I have learnt that they last a long time and don't crack under pressure. Perfect for a girl on the go.

I apply my powder with the Real Techniques Powder brush, over my foundation before my highlighter and blush. I top up over the day to erase any unwanted shine and still remain un-caked.

If you are looking for a long lasting, light powder than I would give this a try and very much doubt you will be disappointed with results. This product is perfect for someone who needs that little something extra to finish off their look without being too 'made up'.
