MAC Mineralized SkinFinish Natural in Medium

MAC Mineralized SkinFinish Natural in Medium

Hey guys! Sorry I have not been posting regularly, I’m currently working full time so I don’t have much spare time to do reviews but I’ll definitely post 1 up every week. As you can see from the title, today we are going to be talking about the MAC mineralized skin finish natural. I can’t believe I have not done a review on this yet because I have been using it every time I am going out recently and I am absolutely in love with it.  




It gives the most natural, flawless finish to the skin. The powder is very fine and it blurs out all the minor imperfections that the skin has. I am always faithful to my Revlon translucent powder for setting any concealer or foundation (I don’t really use foundation/BB on a daily basis) but it does make me skin look a little dry and cakey.

This magical powder on the other hand makes the skin look even better after a few hours of application. When I first bought it, I thought it would just be another expensive yet ordinary setting powder, maybe a little better than my Revlon translucent powder that I normally reach out for. But its performance is pretty astonishing. Give it a little time and it will melt into your skin and create a flawless canvass. Even after a long day, my face still looks fabulous. 

It leaves a smooth, satin finish that is not shimmery at all but reflects light amazingly.  For reference, I am a NC25 and I use Medium shade. 

The product comes in a dome shape that all products in the mineralized line has. I have been using it religiously for around 3 months now and I haven’t made a dent yet. It does produce fall outs quite easily but most compact powders do as well and it doesn’t bother me that much.   

 It is pretty compact, definitely more travel-friendly than my loose translucent powder, and useful for travelling or on-the-go touch ups. However, there is no compartment for a brush or sponge unlike the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation so you do have to carry a separate brush or sponge. 


The powder is pretty pricey for a finishing powder. If I’m not wrong it cost around SGD$35 at MAC outlets. Although the cost may be on the pricier side, the product lasts forever so do not hesitate on splurging on this item because it will be there for a good whole year

I do not find it has any coverage at all so if you are looking for a foundation powder I do not recommend this. This powder only provides a nice satin finish to the skin. Many people use it as a setting/finishing powder. I use it over my BB cream or alone on days where I am just running some errands I use it just to give my face a little colour. 

The only big con I find is that this powder has no ability to control any oils at all. I do get oily during the day but I really like the radiant look that it gives so I have to blot maybe once every few hours. 

As usual with many of the MAC products, many reviewers find that MAC products break them out. My acne problem has stabilized a lot through recent months so I did not break out from it at all. 

It does not contain any mirrors or a compartment for any sponge applicators unlike the MAC Studio FixPowder Plus Foundation so you do need an additional sponge or brush for any on-the-go touchups.  

Yadda Yadda:

I paid around $35 for my Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. Will I repurchase? Yes! If you are looking for a finishing powder that provides a flawless looking skin, I highly recommend this! Do recommend me your favourite powders in the comment section below.
