Today I am reviewing the latest foundation by MAC Cosmetics. It is their Mineralize Moisture SPF15 Foundation.
I got the product in shade NC-15. Something I have noticed is the shade NC-15 is FAR lighter in this product than it is in Face & Body and Studio Sculpt, I have no idea why but it is actually too pale for my skin which is a first for a MAC foundation.
It is marketed for “dry skins” due to it’s “moisturising formula” but I have to say, despite it being dewy to the extent it is shiny it clings to dry skin I never knew I had! I was appalled when I saw my face in the mirror, it was a flakey, shiny, too pale, greasy looking mess.
I am not one of those people who buys a foundation that is marketed towards a skin type I am not and then complains about it. My skin is VERY dry and dehydrated however this product is far too clingy for dry skin as it settles into every line on the face yet it is far too greasy to be used on oily skin.
The one thing I do like about this product is the packaging. It is nice to have a MAC foundation that comes with a pump.
I don’t think I have ever been as disappointed with a make-up product. I would certainly never use it on a client unless they wished to have a face like a disco ball. Dewy is one thing, “snail fresh” is another.
