In recent years I’ve strayed from Mac a little and I’m not entirely sure why that is. There are products that I’ve used and loved until there’s not a scrap left. The only reason I can think I’ve not replaced them is because, as I’m a blogger, there’s always something new to try.
I’ve been having some issues with my base make up lately, with it not staying in place and not looking flawless. Looking through some old blog photographs really made me realise that somewhere along the way I’ve lost my touch!
So, when Exeter finally got a Mac store, and I finally got a tax rebate, it was time to have a little splurge. I picked up a few products but today I wanted to talk about the Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural.
I used to love this product, you can see it mentioned in an old post here. In fact I used it until there wasn’t any left. So I decided to repurchase. The range has had a facelift and the shade names have changed. I used to be a Light Medium, but that no longer exists so I wanted to be matched in store. My new shade is Light Plus, which I actually think is the same as Light Medium, just a new name. The packaging has also had a revamp and is much more attractive now.
Apply it with a big, soft, fluffy brush and you’ll get a perfect finish to your make up. I can’t believe I forgot about it. This is absolutely without a doubt the best powder I have ever used. It seems to hold everything in place, nearly all day, with a touch being unnecessary for me (but I am prone to dryness rather than oilyness), but touch up can freshen everything up at about 3/4pm. Personally at that stage of the day I don’t really bother, and I find that my make up still looks good even though there’s a touch of shine creeping in.
I can’t recommend this powder enough, its amazing.
The only downside I can think of is that it’s had a hefty £6 price increase since my last purchase, making it £24, but it lasts, and it is one of the few products that I know I will use every single bit of.
A very definite recommendation from me and I won’t ever stray again, using this again for the first time in years felt like coming home.
You can purchase your own from Mac counters and online.
