MAC Mineralize Skinfinish for Darker Skin

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish for Darker Skin..
The MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is by far my favourite powder to use for finishing/setting my foundation. Although it is by MAC and we all know MAC usually has a large variety of shades to choose from for darker skin but for this product, that isn’t the case. There are only two shades available; Dark and Dark Deep. Don’t let that put you off though! Because the powder has very low coverage it can be worn by many shades of dark skin without looking ashy or grey. For example if you’re between an NC45-NW45, then you may be able to go for the shade 'Dark'. Those that are deeper than NW45 may use the shade 'Dark Deep'. As I am a MAC NC50, personally I don't mind using either shade because the powder is on the sheerer side so, for someone of my skin tone the noticeable difference isn't great. I've been using Dark Deep since the summer when I got darker and now I feel it just gives me a bronzey look which I like.

“A luxurious domed face powder with minerals, slowly baked to provide a dimensional yet natural-matte finish. Provides perfect low coverage. Use to set and fix foundation or as a touch-up throughout the day.” – MAC Cosmetics

On the MAC website it does say that the powder is designed to be used to set and fix foundation but as it does have some coverage to it, if you have clear skin or very few blemishes then this powder can definitely be worn alone! Worn alone it acts as a sheer foundation. If you do have scars from spots then you can conceal them with a concealer of your choice and use it all over your face to act as a foundation and to set the concealed areas. This powder worn alone looks like your skin but better! It has an undetectable flawless finish but creates a radiant look. It’s almost as though it has tiny light reflecting particles because it really does make you glow yet look natural. A glow from within let’s say.

If you don’t feel comfortable wearing just a sheer powder then why not use it to set your foundation? The MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powder is far from heavy so it can be used as a setting powder for your foundation. I would describe it’s finish as demi-matte. It doesn’t give you a definite matte finish which can come across as cakey but instead it’s more of a silky finish which I guess that’s probably why it has been described as luxurious. You only need a little amount to set your foundation and control oil but it can be built up for a fuller coverage without appearing cakey.

Price: £21.00

  2. I have 3! My first was medium dark, it was maybe my very first MAC product. Also have medium deep and deep dark. I like to use deep dark as a contour. I use the others either alone or as a setting powder. These are the only products I use consistently when I wear makeup.

  6. i use both dark and deep dark ( before it was changed to dark deep). I use dark on my face to set foundation and i use the deep dark a lot on my eyes, when using just liner. It gives some warmth to the eyes, very nice.

  12. Hi there! Have you tried the MAC foundation plus powder? I want a more total coverage. I currently use the studio fix foundation nc 50 and was considering using the foundation plus powder nw 43 or 45 with my current foundation. I use careblend powder now dark/deep during the summer and dark during the winter. Previously I used mineralize in dark and medium deep. Any suggestions regarding my quest for full coverage and non only skin? Thanks
