Free MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Makeup Kit
For all of you free makeup sample fans out there, you know how difficult it can be to find free MAC Cosmetics samples. We haven’t seen an offer like this one in quite a while. The offer does require participation, but the reward is a makeup kit from MAC’s mineral makeup line, Mineralize. This line was launched in about 2008 and has taken the mineral makeup world by storm, becoming one of the most popular lines on the market. 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.
MAC: Finally Flawless Collection
Release Date: January 13th, 2011
International Release Date: January 2011
MAC is all about helping us be the most beautiful we can be. Their collection Finally Flawless is no exception. This collection is a small one offering a Mineralize Foundation and a brush.
I love when I get reminders that beauty starts with the basics—if you have a great foundation that allows your skin to look smooth and beautiful, everything else is just icing on the the cake.
This foundation is unique in that it uses a blend of minerals and water. Since our skin is made up almost entirely of minerals and water, the foundation is helping to put back into our skin what everyday life takes out. It has a nourishing effect on the skin. It helps to reduce the appearance of pores and other skin blemishes because it moisturizes so well avoiding the flaky effect as well. It is also a gel based foundation which makes it ideal for normal to dry skin.
Makeup artist love this product. It was used in the Spring/Summer 2010 fashion shows of; BCBG, Carolina Herrera and Baby Phat. But you don’t have to be a model to enjoy the benefits of this product. It is great for any woman who wants to look her best at the office or throughout the evening. It is long lasting up to eight hours which makes this a dream for anyone who is on the go constantly needing to look their best.
The collection offers brush 130 for help in application. The brush can help you get a smooth application especially around the eyes where your skin is most delicate. Neither the brush nor the foundation are new to MAC. This collection is a relaunch of Mineralize Foundation SPF 15. The foundation is permanent to the MAC products.
Mineralize Foundation SPF 15 has the exclusive formula – micronized and coated pigments improve blendability, maintain colour purity with SPF 15, and our liquid mineral ferment complex adds nutrients. Light diffusing optics minimize the visibility of imperfections – FINALLY Flawless!
