Review – MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
So I wanted to use this for at least a week before I reviewed it and it has been 11 days!!! I pretty much still LOVE this!! I have used this everyday since the day I picked it up. Please note that this product DOES contain bismuth oxychloride in it and you should stay away from it if you’ve had problems with bismuth in the past. Bismuth does cause irritation in some women and can cause breakouts. This is why it was so important for me to try this everyday for a length of time before I really fell in love with it. If you know you have an issue with bismuth I would totally try out Lumiere mineral foundation. Anything that I have posted in the last 11 days (which wasn’t much) was with me wearing MSFN in Medium Plus. Here is the look I am uploading a tutorial for as we speak…. I am wearing it here.
Honestly, pictures really don’t do the finish of this powder justice. As I have mentioned in the past, this is not technically a foundation but it is how I use it. It is the perfect amount of coverage for me and evens me out nicely. I love that although this is a powder it is NEVER powdery, it actually melts into your skin. I have been using a kabuki to apply this since I am using it in place of a foundation but you can easily use a fluffy powder brush or a stippling brush for lighter coverage. You can also lightly spritz your face or brush with Fix+ and then apply the MSFN for a heavier coverage. The finish is definitely what makes this stand out for me… It gives my skin an amazing natural glow and I literally feel airbrushed. I have gotten a lot of “you have great skin” compliments and although my skin does look better from LUSH Angels on Bare Skin, it is definitely the MSFN that they are seeing. Actually, I LOVE to wash my face with the AOBS and then apply MSFN after. My skin is just radiant after that.
Keep in mind that this might be too dewy for those of you with really oily skin. I do know many that have oily skin that still adore this so it might be worth a try. Let me know if you guys use this or you plan on trying this! I would love to hear your opinions. I am officially declaring this foundation my “holy grail”… first foundation to get that title from me.
