MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Review

Hello beauties, I hope you're all doing okay, it's Wednesday and we're halfway through the week already, where does the time go?

Anyway a little over a week ago I put up a Mini MAC Haul Post and one of the items included in the haul was the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, I bought this in the shade 'Light'. You can have a look at my Mini MAC Haul post here if you want to take a cheeky peek.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light

I bought this due to seeing so many wonderful positive reviews about the product amongst the blogging and youtube community. I decided to bite the bullet last week while browsing through the MAC website and bought it in one of it's lightest shades. MAC says this powder is 'A luxurious domed face powder with minerals, slowly baked to provide a dimensional yet natural/matte coverage. Use to set and fix foundation or as a touch up throughout the day'.

I absolutely agree with what MAC says about this product, it gives you a natural matte finish and it feels quite lightweight on the skin, almost like you don't have any powder on.
You should never be too heavy handed with the powder as it can make your face look extremely cakey. How do I know this? I stupidly made the mistake of building it up, something which I will not be doing again. I ended up going on a shopping trip, looked in a mirror and I had a ghostly/patchy figure staring back at me. It looked so terrible! Never again!

Anyway in the last few years that I've been using makeup I've never fully stuck to just one powder as I love trying new ones out to see which ones work better with my skin and give me that much wanted 'flawless finish'. I've never found a powder that made me look in the mirror and think 'wow, my face looks amazing'.

I've used this powder a few times since buying it and I have to say I quite like it!
It doesn't have a yellow undertone to it unlike most powders I have tried in the past, it actually goes so well with my skin tone. It also eliminates shine all day and keeps oiliness at bay. The powder gives you a light to medium coverage and makes your skin look natural all the while.

When you apply a little of this to your face it gives a lovely almost flawless finish and it stays put throughout most of the day and you only need to top it up at least once.
The MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder is definitely worth trying out if you're looking for a powder to keep your makeup put all day and want a natural finish. 

Despite the negatives about my patchy face, which was due to myself, it's a really good powder when you're light handed with it and it wears pretty much all day with at least one top up, what more can you ask from a powder? 

Have you tried MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish Natural?
