The last of the new collections from MAC is New View. This is the creme de la creme of them all, with the most beautiful skin softening powder that goes on light and sheer to perfect the face. While I am not a fan of traditional loose mineral foundation powders, this is a very different powder. New View is perfect to use over a foundation or bare moisturized face to lighten, brighten, smoothe and even out - all while making your face appear to glow in soft focus.
This one is similar to the mineralize shadows of Electroflash is in they are double sided. One side is more matte, which should be applied to the whole face, while using the other more shimmery side to highlight where needed. Beautiful!
"Unlike most powders that are pressed into traditional metal pans, Mineralize Skinfinish is moulded onto small round terracotta tiles and carefully baked for 24 hours, allowing for an exceptionally sheer and light application. The Natural portion of the duo will provide a dimensional yet natural matte-finish, while the shimmer portion will add buffed-up highlights to cheeks and brows, or an overall ultra-deluxe polish to the face. This unique powder contains vitamin A and E derivatives, which help buffer the skin from environmental aggression and jojoba oil, which calms and soothes the skin. This product can be used on face or body and is appropriate for all skin types. Dermatologist- and ophthalmologist-tested. Use with the 189 Face Brush. With its rounded paddle and chiselled edges, it’s perfect for precise blending and sculpting. "
