I have to admit that even though this foundation has been out for awhile, I never tried it until the late summer of last year. I was more than surprised when I finally purchased this product. I went to a MAC store associate and complained about my liquid foundation that never blended to my liking and she matched me to Medium-Medium Plus shades. I have slight tan/olive skintones. I made the switch from liquid foundation to this and couldn't be more happy. This product gives low to medium coverage and since it is buildable, you are able to apply until you are happy with the coverage that you desire. Almost everyone says they absolutely hate the sponge applicator that it comes with and would rather just use a flat-top brush or kabuki, but to me personally, both flat-top and sponge applicator work equally as good - at least on my face. This mineralized loose foundation has SPF 15 which is essential protection from the sun and glides on smoothly and gives that natural and radiant look.

I will never use any other foundation on my face! My only exception is if MAC releases another powdered/mineralized foundation that works even better, but you can't perfect perfection. If you aren't a big fan of powdered foundation, liquid Mineralized Satinfinish SPF 15 foundation is an excellent choice as well. Both products bring a smooth, natural looking finish. The liquid comes in 15 different shades so there is a little more variety with this foundation. But overall, both do exactly what they promise!

Visit to order online! Currently they are offering FREE standard shipping with any (USD) $60 purchase. It will be automatically added to your items at the checkout. Only valid in US/CAN addresses. I'm not too sure how long this offer will last so please take advantage of this deal!

If you are having a problem matching your skintone to the shades online, don't hesistate to go into a MAC store near you to have an associate match it for you. If possible, go in without any foundation on so he/she can match the best shade to your skintone.


  1. I've been thinking about switching. I've been using just a MAC powder compact and was debating going mineral or liquid!

    I have to head to MAC and test it out!

  2. PS
    Plus I love make up with SPF! It makes you feel less worse putting it on! haha

  3. buy mineral and try it out! i'm sure you won't go back to regular powder! omg i love SPF too <3
