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.
I absolutely love this powder and I am now on my 3rd! I have almost completely ditched foundation since I have been using this. I just use concealer where needed then put this powder over the top and my skin looks so much better. It doesn't oxidize or show dry patches. On the odd occasion when I do wear liquid foundation I use this over the top to set it and it works perfectly. Would definitely recommend!

This is very multi purpose depending on which color you choose, you can use the baked pressed mineral powders for a number of different things, like removing shine, evening out your skin tone, blurring pores, bronzing, and setting your foundation or as concealer.They have a semi-matte finish and a good amount of pigment, but they can be sheered down. I have combination skin that ventures between oily and dry. I wear the color Medium Tan as my face setting powder daily, and I also use Give Me Sun sometimes as a bronzer when I’m more tan and lighter shades when I’m much more pale. I’ve worn it for everyday makeup looks, big events, pictures, HD video, daytime work meetings and dinner dates and I think it looks just as good on camera as it does in real life. Unlike many pressed powder formulas, the Mineralize Skinfinish Naturals look more like loose powders than pressed powders when they’re sitting on the skin. After having taken a zillion pictures over the years, I think that loose powders generally look better than pressed powders in person and in pics — softer, I guess. Less like makeup and more like real skin. But MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural bucks that trend. When I wear it, my skin looks even toned, smooth, and it doesn’t look shiny (nor does it look severely matte). The powder also doesn’t look super obvious. With this powder a little goes a long way. I’ve used mine almost daily for a year, and I’ve barely put a dent in it. It doesn’t oxidize either (darken) on my skin throughout the day, so the color stays true, and it blends beautifully. It also doesn’t emphasize any textured areas or trigger breakouts, while still managing to look amazing no matter what I wear it with.i love this and would recommend it definetly!

I use the shade either ‘Give me Sun!’ If I am slightly more tanned or ‘Dark Golden’ if I am a little less tan or don’t want as heavy bronze/contoured look. I have tried many bronzers including Benefit, Chanel Cream Bronzer etc and nothing compares. I suggest applying this product in circular sweeps to ensure a seamless blend. Super long lasting bronzer, I always reach for this when it comes to purchasing a new bronzer as I know this gives me the best results 💕

So I’ve just been using this powder after watching a makeup tutorial by Makeup By Jah. A mac makeup artist suggested the shade Medium Dark. Honestly I love it! With my pale skin I find it so hard to find a natural looking bronzer that isn’t too dark and orange! This gives me a lovely bronzey glow without looking unnatural, blends in easily with a powder or contour brush and just looks stunning on the skin! It doesn’t look too over the top + lasts all day! You don’t need to use a lot of bronzer either! Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a pretty natural bronzer!

Yes. This product had multi purposes for me. I use the lighter shade light to set my foundation but then i use medium golden as a bronzer and it compliments my skin very well and just makes my skin look very healthy. Using a a bronzer the product lasts ages. I last bought my bronzer one in december and still have it now and i use it everyday. The face powder lasts a lot less obviously using it alot more.

I love this powder for when I don’t want to wear foundation or have a full face of makeup. I buff it into my skin and spritz with a finishing spray and it looks great. It’s not really matte and not dewy it just gives a really nice healthy look to the skin. A really beautiful powder.

Im in my early 30s tried a Lot of powders. They've all had a negative point eg highlighted dry patches of skin, looked cakey esp on spots/pores, not lasted on my face well etc UNTIL this powder! This is perfect, makes my skin look airbrushed and natural(well if i had naturally perfect skin), glides over my enlarged pores makes my skin look flawless All Day Long!Considering as a mum of 3, i usually only have time for a bit of concealer, this powder and mascara. I look better than what i did when i made an actual full blown effort involving any other powder! THE HOLY GRAIL! Thank you Mac!

I have been using this product for years and love it. I usually get one for xmas and one from duty free when my mum goes on holiday. It lasts for ages even though I use it everyday after foundation and for touch ups throughout the day and nights out. I have the colour ‘Light’ like in most products 😂. The finish is beautiful and I have been complimented when wearing it. I have tried many cheaper pressed powders and definitely think this is one of the products worth splashing out on because the finish is head and shoulders above the rest.

Now i am not one for buying a powder with a bit of shimmer in it because my face is oily and i need something to keep it matte, but this is a lovely powder! I use it in the colour 'light' and it gives my face a natural glow and you can't tell that that it is shimmery. This also stops my face from getting shiny throughout the day and doesn't look cakey. So worth the money for me!

This is a brilliant powder, it is quite a dark setting however for nights out or if you are on stage then it is perfect. Of course everything from MAC is brilliant so I expected it to be very good quality and it definitely is.

I would definitely recommend this product. I use this near enough everyday and enjoy using it. I have mine in a shade lighter just because it can oxidise but that doesn't really matter to me. It has a light feel but a good coverage to it. I reccomend to use it with a not very dense large brush for the best look.

Love this product. I've had mine over a year and it's nowhere near finished- used every day too! It finishes off my base perfectly and gives me a 'glow'. Really easy to apply and lasts all day. Best makeup product I use

The product itself was ok, but i wasnt amazed by it as i heard a lot. For somePeople its good for some people as me wasnt suitable. I bought cause everyone was screaming how the powder is great. You cant wear it everyday its more for night out use cause its heavy for day time. Amd also it makes face look dry

Absolutely love the finish of this powder as it isn't cakey because of the finely milled powder and the baked formulation. The powder doesn't feel heavy on the skin and for all you pale girls out there i'm extremely pale and the colour light is perfect as it doesn't add too much colour and doesn't oxidise

Perfect face powder for dry skins! I use to set my foundation. Gives such a lovely finish to the skin (kinda glowy..) and not matte! I'm a lover off MSF and this is definitely my favourite face powder.. Unfortunately I just get through it too quickly. Would be a perfect base on its own for makeup newbies as so natural!

Can't go without this. Due to the fact I have such pale skin I use this as contour as most specific contour powders are too orange for me. Absolutely love it. Really pigmented and easy to apply and spread evenly. Definitely recommend.
