MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Medium

Who else is suffering from shiny face syndrome now the weather has got hotter? I am anyway. When summer hits, I love a glow. I'm all for the glow infact. But when it starts looking like I'm a greasy sweaty mess, I am not all for the glow. So in my recent shopping spree and a last ditch attempt to combat any more shine, I headed over to my local MAC counter and picked up a Mineralize Skinfinish in the shade Medium. This shade is a perfect match and neutral colour for anyone like me who's around MAC NC20.

I only own two powders in my stash, well 4 if you count the other two in my Hourglass palette but none are suitable now it's summer. The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette is a lovely palette, the formulas are perfect and they're a great powder to blur any imperfections but when I've applied this, more often than not I look like I've got greasy skin. Then there's my Natural Collection Translucent Loose Powder, this is a typical powder, great for getting rid of any shine but when I apply this, my skin looks dry and dehydrated and the powder cakes and basically it doesn't look good.

In terms of the Mac Mineralize Skinfinish, this is probably a distant cousin if you were to put the Hourglass and Natural Collection powders together. The finish of the Mineralize Skinfinish is more of a powder finish similar to the Natural Collection one but it's light enough it doesn't cake, it sets make up and still let's a little glow come through without looking shiny. See what I mean about distant cousins? I apply a light dusting of this all over my face using the Real Techniques Duo Fiber Face Brush and after each application means my make up lasts right through the day.

A quick mention about the packaging too. I've had a Mineralize Skinfinish before and it's packaging was flimsy, would always open unexpectedly and it was generally shoddy. I'm pleased to see MAC have changed their packaging to a magnetic compact which is strong and stays closed well and even contains a mirror unlike the previous packaging meaning it's great for on the go. Can you tell I like to take my make up with me? I'm not sure if MAC have increased the price because of this but it's much better quality than before.

I'm really impressed with this product, I had a little MAC splurge at the weekend so no doubt there'll be more reviews to come soon!

Have you tried the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish?
