MAC and it's Minerals.

On a search for a new foundation, I was thrilled to learn of MAC's new Mineralize SatinFinish and Mineralize Skinfinish products. It just launched this week, and I ran out to snatch up one of each right away.

Upon first looking at the bottle of the Satinfinish, I loved the nifty pump - that slid to keep it open or closed,  which is just great. Closing the bottle by moving the pump to the right after each use, certainly extends the shelf-life - a major complaint I have with liquid foundations. I pumped out two squirts, but ultimately needed three to apply it for a nice even coverage to my face. I liked using a simple cosmetic wedge sponge to spread it out, and touched up with a foundation brush around my nose, lips, and eyes. The coverage was plenty for me, and as I played with it, I learned that it is definitely build able if you need more coverage all over, or just here and there.

Onto the Skinfinish, I was amazed at how very little of the product is needed. Just a few swirls into the powder was enough to cover my face. The finish was lightly matte, almost perfected looking. And using a kabuki brush was a perfect choice.

I am truly in love with these new MAC Minerals, and raved to a few friends about it right away. They subsequently ran out and purchased the pair as well, and were just as happy as me.

Satinfinish retails for $26.50, while the Skinfinish is $24.50. If you haven't used a MAC foundation or powder in the past, I suggest that you see one of their artists at counter to get matched for your perfect shade. Otherwise, it is simple to order online.
