MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural

When I first discovered mineral makeup, I went nuts purchasing different colors of eyeshadow, blush and foundation.  I really loved how it felt on my skin but the one thing I disliked was whenever I would set my makeup with loose powder, it would look too matte, too thick.  It always happened, even when I'd choose the powder with the lightest coverage.

So I headed to my friendly neighborhood MAC counter to look for something that would get the job done.  Carlos recommended that I try the Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powder in Medium.

It's a low-coverage powder that effectively sets makeup and provides a semi-matte, subtle dewy glow.  If you're looking for something that looks natural, this is what you want.  

Whenever I use liquid foundation and use this product to set my makeup, I use a powder brush.  Then there are days when I'm too lazy to wear makeup and I just want to look shine-free.  During those times, I just put on my moisturizer and then take a circular sponge and lightly press this power on to my skin.  So far, it hasn't caused any breakouts.  Yay!

How much do I love this?  I'm on my fourth compact since I started using this three years ago.  It's one of those products that I will always be part of my makeup kit.


  1. I seriously need to start saving up for one of these!!

  2. @Michelle if you know anyone who can get it for you in HK, do that instead. i'm disgusted at how much the price difference is here compared to the website.

  3. Do you know if it's cheaper in HK than in the Duty Free store in Paranaque? When I went there this year, it was $36 (US dollars).

  4. hi kari! i'm not sure about the price for mineralize. what i do know is that lipsticks are about 100 to 200 bucks less in hk compared to manila. i would assume the same goes for their other products?

    i'll be going back to hk in a few months, let me know if you still want me to check then :)


Thanks for giving my blog some love ♥
