MAC Mineralize Foundation SPF 15

Hello everybody!

I got the new MAC Mineralize Foundation SPF 15 on Saturday and I am really liking it! I am a huge fan of MAC's Mineralize Satinfinish foundation, so I sure had to try this one! I was surprised at how creamy it is, I have been wearing it for the past two days and my skin feels great! It's very moisturizing, in fact, the texture is so creamy that you can easily spread it with your fingers, that is if you put on a primer beforehand, which I did. I used MAC's Prep and Prime Skin and the foundation glid on like nothing! I have yet to try it without primer.

I also tried it with 3 different brushes, the MAC 131 flat duo fibre brush (LE), the new MAC 130 duo fibre brush (LE) that the foundation came out with and the MAC 190 foundation brush, and that one worked best. The other ones didn't work at all, streaks all over my face. So basically, I suggest putting on a face primer first, then using your MAC 130 foundation brush and finally to buff it in with your fingers.

Here is how the foundation looks spread out on the back of my hand (without primer underneath):

Here it is worked into the skin, I just rubbed it in (again without primer):

These pictures have all been taken with flash.

As for the shades:
This foundation is darker than other MAC foundations, I am usually an NC 30, in pale winter days an NC 25, but with this one I had to go NC 20, which really surprised me. I tried the MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation in the past, which supposedly is also darker, but there I didn't have to change shades. So anyway, NC 20 for me.

The coverage I would say is medium but definitely buildable.

The foundation comes with a sponge and retails for 33 euros.

I hope this was helpful, talk to you all very soon!

This one really looks a perfect match for you.
I haven't try any MAC foundation yet, I'm using BellaPierre (loose) Mineral Foundation.

ich habe mir die neue mineralfoundation auch gekauft und den 130er pinsel und ich bin von beiden total begeistert. bei der alten mineralfoundation von mac hat mich der geruch massiv gestört, dieses erdige aroma war nicht meins. aber die neue ist echt super, weil man sie schnell auftragen kann und das tragegefühl ist so angenehm.
greetz, lilly

Hallo Lilly, hast du die hellste dann genommen? NC 15? War das hell genug für dich? Ich war echt fassungslos dass es unter NC 20 nur mehr eine Nuance gab!
