Plus, MAC is one of the most trusted brands in the cosmetics industry, so you can be confident knowing that the products are of the highest caliber.
If you are new to MAC’s mineral makeup products, here are overviews of a few of the more popular products in MAC Mineralize line.
MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish has historically been one of the most popular products by MAC. It is a baked product meant to provide that last, finishing touch to your complexion, whether that be a hint of color, a slight glow, or a little bit of highlighting. These products typically been available only on a limited basis partly due to the difficulty of producing the product. MAC fans gobble these up quickly, and limited edition shades usually sell out in a blink. They are now a regular part of the Mineralize mineral makeup product line.
The MAC Mineralize Blushes are similar in texture to the Mineralize Skinfinishes. They provide a little sheen along with a gorgeous color payoff for the cheeks. They seem to last forever, as do all the baked Mineralize products.
The Mineralize Foundation is a richer cream formula which provides a buildable finish while maintaining a silky, non cakey feel. This product works well for all skin types, although we have heard reports of those with oily skin who report that this foundation might be better for normal to dry skin types. Either way, this product also features SPF 15 protection and skin-hydrating properties for all day comfort and wearability.
