Review: MAC Mineralized Satinfinish
hope you all had a great weekend. Recently i had been testing out different foundations to see what would work best for my face, like i have said before, i am always looking for the best thing out there. I have tried several different types of foundations, and have loved some and hated others. With that said I would like to review MAC Mineralize Satinfinish spf 15 foundation.
This foundation when i first tried it i was kind of skeptical since MAC does get a lot of hate when it comes to foundations, especially from me =] im no hater but they still haven't perfected their formula well at least not according to me. Anyways this foundation is to give you a satin finish with medium coverage which can be build able. It has an SPF of 15 so it protects some. Now let me tell you when i first tried it i hated it much so, it looked blotchy when applied, the consistency is somewhat runny so i guess that's where and why it appeared blotchy to me after application if that makes any sense, I used my MAC 187 (skunk brush) to apply it. Seriously after that first time i didn't want it anymore. Well this weekend since i felt like wearing some red lipstick i didnt want to use my Revlon PR foundation, I just feel since the look i was going for was a more matte look, the shimmers in the Revlon foundation would throw me off, so I reached for MAC foundation to give it one last try and Im so glad I did. This time instead of applying it with my 187 i decided to use my Sigma SS190 WOW! What a difference a brush can make, this is why its important you use different tools to see what is best for what product. After applying this foundation with this brush my face looked flawless the satinfinish was perfect, I used my E.L.F hd powder to minimize shine and pore size and it was the perfect combo. This foundation is amazing. The coverage medium coverage was perfect i just loved it. So i have to recommend this to you ladies. Have any of you tried it yet? What are your thoughts on it? an what do you use to apply it? Hope to hear what you all have to say...
