MAC Mineralize Foundation/Loose Got New Packaging

$30, MAC counters

MAC’s been releasing collections madly left and right lately that moi got lost in their whole labyrinth of products. To begin with, MAC Mineralize Foundation/Loose is part of the Mineralize Perfectly Finished Collection which debuted in MAC counters middle of February this year. 

The buzz. It has been repackaged to look like how other companies dress up their mineral-based loose powder ~ in a clear jar with sifter albeit sleeker in my opinion. Available in nine shades, I bought Medium but skipped the concealer and 188- small duo fibre face brush from the collection. 

The claim. Silky, mineral-rich foundation/loose provides a medium-buildable natural-satin finish. Brushes on for a smooth, radiant look. Helps skin stay healthy and nourished.

The verdict. It’s a good setting powder over liquid foundation. It didn’t cake on me and I had no new breakouts. I won’t use this though on its own because the coverage is so sheer that it failed to hide my blemishes. But if you have natural silky smooth skin, this maybe the only product you’ll ever need. And a blush. And a lipstick. And a mascara. Geez. #makeupjunkie

Over-all rating. 4/5 Must-try. It works well with a kabuki brush. And probably by now you already know  the trick to using mineral-based loose foundation ~ Swirl, Tap off excess, Buff.

      I bet this one is more expensive there in PI. There are drugstore alternatives that deliver as good if not better anyways.xo
