This week I am reviewing my 5 current favourite foundations!
MAC?! I’m featuring a MAC product? Well, yes, I am!
First off this foundation is the newcomer in this list. This is totally not a base for everyone, but I still think as far as cream foundation goes, it works pretty well.
MAC Mineralize Foundation SPF15 is a creamy, rich base which is super soft, doesn’t need any warming up and gives a medium coverage that is buildable. It really covers flaws so for days when you can’t be bothered (most days!) you can slap this on quickly with a sponge and you’re done.
And that, is why I really like this base!
Yet it comes with is flaws – it is so rich that it needs setting otherwise it’s sayonara by lunch time. It’s most definitely for drier skins – it feels so comfortable when your skin if feeling parched, BUT on the t-zone it tends to slide off.
Still I like it – it’s my current in a rush, go to base. Especially nice applied with a stippling brush.
The usual MAC selection from NC15 to NW55.
For Skin Types:
Dry and Dull.
Cream, feels a little oily when first applied but sets.
Medium, can be built up.
So-so. On very dry skins, it may last longer, on combination skin it slides off mid day and need topping up.
Quite a glowy base, due to the fact it’s quite a hydrating product. Use too much and it looks greasy.
Hydration and leaving the skin feeling soft and comfortable.
Doesn’t last too long
Price: £23 for 10g. Is that expensive? It feels expensive for a MAC foundation and also, I am on to my second one – the first didn’t last more than 6 weeks of daily use.
