on my dry-combination skin, it hasn't yet looked cakey and its actually doing a pretty good job of controlling oil in my t-zone (which is usually the area of my face where make-up goes to die)

- Maccosmetics User

despite how much i hate the new packaging, this still is my favorite product from mac and the mineralized skinfinish natural which is a good face powder that never looks cakey

- M·A·C User


blends well

i use it all over my face after applying my complexion products (even over the blush) to help blend everything and leave a subtle glowy finish to my matte products and i have oily/combo skin

- Macy's User

this never looks cakey (some powders can hang on to dry patches and look cakey or just look cakey if you use too much) ever, which is amazing, and it matches my skin tone perfectly

- M·A·C User



soft & gentle is the perfect, soft, luminous highlighter

- Ulta User

this is a much lighter alternative and it gives your skin the most radiant glow

- Maccosmetics User

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

wasn't glittery at all, just a smooth powder that made my skin look soft and didnt accentuate any of my pores

- Nordstrom User

it doesn't emphasize my large pores, doesn't sit on top of my skin looking chalky, it's gives a beautiful full coverage that's natural looking

- Maccosmetics User



i swirl this over my liquid foundation with my mecca cosmetica all over finishing brush, and it gives my skin a really beautiful, silky finish

- Mecca User

i used it with my mac concealer and my make up was perfect all day and my skin feels silky to touch

- Lookfantastic User

staying power


i find that no matter how bad my foundation/concealer looks underneath, this always makes my face look flawless, and lasts all day on my oily skin

- Maccosmetics User

it lasts all day, with a smooth finish , it is value for its money

- Macy's User

color accuracy

doesn't oxidize

it looks very, very light in the compact, but it goes on is so sheer and smooth it doesn't change the color of my foundation which is a yellow undertone

- M·A·C User

doesn't oxidize, great coverage

- Ulta User

under eye

good for under eye

this is perfect powder to set up concealer under eye

- Debenhams User

omg it gives the most beautiful coverage and even covers my dark circles and helps set my under eyes after i apply nw40 pro long wear concealer

- M·A·C User


no flashback

most setting powders are light in color and can leave flashback or an ashy tone to the skin

- Maccosmetics User

it looks amazing on flash photography and people are always asking me what highlighter i use

- Maccosmetics User



i love the buildable yet natural look this gives my skin

- M·A·C User

i've been using the skinfinish natural for years and i love it

- Nordstrom User


medium coverage

i really do love how this provides a medium-full coverage however this is not for anybody with oily skin

- M·A·C User

this is a setting powder as well as a medium to full coverage face powder

- Ulta User

best use


super easy to blend and apply smoothly

- Ulta User

because the powder is the some color as your foundation/skin, it blends in much more easily, and you don't have to buff the product in like you would a transparent powder

Love it ❤️

I love this face powder. A little goes a long way. I have tried others through out the years and nothing compares to this. I always go right back to this face powder. This can be used for medium to full coverage. I usually have to touch up here and there through out the day. With this only once in a while as to here others I have to constantly touch up. With this if I get a little oily all I have to do is reblend the oily spots with a face brush and I am done. I hardly ever have to reapply.I have very sensitive skin and this is the only face powder I have found that doesn't break my skin out. It blurs fine lines and wrinkles. It doesn't dry your skin out at all. When I wear this I don't feel it on my skin at all. This is my holy grail of face powders. I will never be without it.

I have very dry skin and wearing powder was a no no. I have used mineral makeup and that is better, but can't wear it in the winter. I have redness that is hard to cover without looking dry, cakey or like a mask. Tinted moisturizers are too sheer in coverage and don't last long, powders make my dry skin look even drier, and liquids slide off of my red patches and so I apply more and more to cover it and it just makes it more cakey. So what is a girl to do? I read the reviews and went to Nordstrom to give it a try. The lady put the smallest amount on my skin and it evened out my complexion very nicely. I used a darker color than my complexion (lighter shades make me look pasty and seems to accentuate my redness) which also helped to better conceal my red cheeks. But the real test was to see how my skin would react to it throughout the day. Would skin look dry at the end day? Would it be tight and itchy like what all powders have done before? I looked in the mirror and to my astonishment; my skin didn't look dry at all. It looked hydrated and glowing still. Most foundations and powders I have used soak up all the moisture from my skin and again looks dry. NOT THIS STUFF. Honestly I can't really classify this as a powder. It is so different in texture and application. It looks like a powder, but it is so different. I guess because of the way it is baked it is creamier than a regular pressed powder. My makeup application is done in 5 minutes. Finally a powder that does all that I need it to and makes my morning application so much easier and much... faster. I never knew that powder could be this awesome for my dry skin. And oilier skin can wear it too! That to me speaks volumes about this product. It is non drying and long wearing. I can't say enough good things about this awesome product. « less

I'm so amazed by this pow

I'm so amazed by this powder! I have it on now over the Prolongwear concealer (used under my eyes and over some dark spots around my chin, in NC25) and set with Fix+. It's perfect. I've been wearing it for a few hours now and it still looks as good as it did when I first put it on. Plus, for a powder that feels super light, the pigmentation is impressive and I love the demi-matte finish. On my dry-combination skin, it hasn't yet looked cakey and its actually doing a pretty good job of controlling oil in my t-zone (which is usually the area of my face where make-up goes to die). I bought it in medium plus. It might actually be a shade or two too dark (in terms of matching my face, which is naturally darker, to my super pale neck) but in the summer this'll be perfect, and not just because of the shade but because on lazy or really hot days when I don't feel like layering on a full face of make-up I can just dust this on over concealer and still feel like I look pretty good and even-toned. « less

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these highlighters! One of my favorites, if not my favorite, on the market. It gives the PERFECT amount of shimmer (if blended out properly) or it can give you that "beaming from outer space" look depending on how much you apply. This can look very chunky/powdery if you just slap it on your face. I usually like to use any of the fan brushes by Morphe to apply and I just keep blending until it no longer looks "powdery". I especially have to do this with the shade Gold Deposit since I believe it is the most bold out of the other shade I own. I own 3 shades of this product (Gold Deposit, Global Glow, and Cheeky Bronze) and they are all perfect for any seasons. Global Glow is more of a champagne gold and happens to be the most subtle of the 3. Cheeky bronze is a beautiful bronze shade with flecks of gold and copper shimmer (perfect for summer), and Gold Deposit is more of a true dark 24K gold with finely milled bronze shimmers and looks great against African American skin all year-around. This highlighter is definitely versatile and I would recommend this to anyone whether they'd like to look "lit from within" or they want their highlighter to be seen from Mars.For reference: I am between NC47 with a drop of NW45 or the shade Macao in Nars' All Day Luminous foundation (think Tatyana Ali's complexion) « less

Created this Sultry yet Bold look. Using my favorite products #Tagged Having hooded eyes makes it so difficult to apply eyeshadow. But I’ve found just the trick 😊

What type of applicator would you recommend for a powder foundation? I’m currently using a fluffy powder brush, but it doesn’t work as well as I’d like. Specifically this:
