Had you asked The Beauty Bug last week what She had thought about mineral makeup, She would have advised that you spend your money on a new lipgloss instead – or this this By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge Hydra Balm Lipstick. It’s life-changing. But Mineral makeup, for The Beauty Bug, had always been synonymous with poor coverage - especially when it came to foundation. Something that people who only shop at Whole Foods buy. You know, wannabe makeup. Just not up to par.
Then, The Beauty Bug tried MAC’s new Mineralize Moisture SPF15 Foundation. And She knows what you’re thinking, but, no, She didn’t take back everything that She’s ever said about mineral makeup. No way. But, She can confidently says that this product is the exception to the rule. One word really describes it well – lush. Unlike other mineral products, it’s lightweight yet uniquely creamy and that’s what drew The Beauty Bug to the product. It’s a fooler. And because it’s stacked with minerals, that means it feeds skin all day with nourishing hydration with its Shea Butter, emollients and conditioning extracts.
Best suited for dry skin, Mineralize’s coverage is beautifully buildable. The Beauty Bug prefers medium coverage so She uses Her MAC 130 Short Duo Fibre brush and blends until Her heart’s content and Her skin’s tone is even. And not to threaten David Copperfield, but its combination of powders create an optical blurring effect that virtually diminish imperfections.
Of course The Beauty Bug and Her palest of pale complexions uses NC15, but the shades range from the aforementioned Casper the friendly Beauty Bug shade all the way up to NW50.
The MAC Mineralize Moisture SPF Foundation is available on maccosmetics.com and at MAC counters for $33.
