MAC Mineral Makeup!
VERY exciting news my (non-existant) friends! MAC has finally jumped on the mineral bandwagon and is creating it's own brand of mineral power foundation. although i have a very love/hate relationship with mineral makeup, for some reason i find the news of a MAC version very exciting. my favorite mineral foundation of the moment is Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals, but it does come with some caveats. more on my tips for the best mineral makeup application later. anyways, MAC says it's new Mineralize SPF 15 foundation is...
"A lightweight loose powder foundation that utilizes the power of minerals to provide the skin with a smooth, radiant, natural finish. Brushes on the skin for sophisticated, medium-buildable coverage. Special mineral complex helps keep skin healthy and nourished while the blend of moisturizers and conditioners in the formula help create a smooth, flawless application. Provides essential everyday SPF 15 sun protection."
with the cost being $29, it is on the pricier side for mineral foundation (Bare Escentuals full-size mineral foundation being $25), but not by much. so far i've found that it's available in 8 shades and we know MAC is usually pretty good about covering all skintones out there, so i'm sure this foundation will be a perfect match for some of the people who could never find their ideal shade with Bare Escentuals. i know i'll be giving it a good testing at the counter when it's availabe and will report back with my opinions...stay tuned!
