I'm supposed to be studying right now (big maths and english test coming up) but, hey reviewing product is totally more fun right!
So for today I'm going to do a review on yet again another MAC product (I know, I know bare with me here) but you would know how addicting there products are if you a liberal user like myself. So seeing as I have so much of it, I MUST MUST MUST review it all!
click "read more" down below for my full review!
Cost: $60 (woah!)
Let the review begin!
Ok, let me just start off by saying that my feelings are constantly changing toward this product.
I think it may be because the colour I got (medium plus) is too closely matched to my skin tone, and a little too orange- obviously meaning that if I ever have the intention of applying this all over my face I end up looking like a barbie doll pumpkin (not a very good look hey?)
So going on the basis that I won't apply this product everywhere, it's GREAT!
This is just the thing you need if your looking to get rid of that horrible, oily, shininess that can be caused by your foundation (liquid of course, OH haha mine happens to be MAC as well, review later).
If your planning on purchasing the product, the best thing to do would be to get it in one shade lighter than your skin tone (like if you were buying foundation)
This then means that you can use it for highlighting your face, giving it great depth!
Another benefit to the lighter colour of the Skinfinish would be that it shields shine perfectly! And it can be blended down perfectly to make your face flawless and b-e-a-utiful.
It's not a loose powder, which for some products means endless, time-wasting, rubbing of your brush onto the surface of the powder just to get even a little bit of residue off - But, not it this case! phewww.
The MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder goes onto, and off of your brush effortlessly so that means not more wasting, no more effort and no more worries!
However this review wouldn't be complete without the downsides (aww).
Firstly, the powder is a bit pricey ($60) which means that if your on a tight budget, this probably isn't the best way to go. Luckily I picked this up in New York for a mere $25 so to me it was totally worth it!
On the other hand if you do decide to fork out some cash for this product and you pull a Georgie and get the wrong colour (too dark would be the worst), it totally limits your usage of the product- unless your keen on going Jersey Shore Sheek, which I certainly am not.
But a little plus to a minus, it does actually work really well as a bronzer! Obviously not on its own, but if your going for some contrasting colour on your cheeks then this is great on the upper cheek bone with a darker bronzer to compliment on the lower.
Depending on your use of the product, I'd say an all over face and body powder brush (wide, with soft bristles) is probably the way to go if your looking to reduce shine and use the powder to finish off your face.
Have a fab day! xo Georgie
