Review: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural and Studio Sculpt Concealer.

Hey everyone!

So, I've been using MUFE's Face & Body foundation recently and I'm falling in love with it. Of course, I'm not a fan of really any of the powders I have to go with it, so, I wanted to pick up a new powder and then a nice concealer, since this is only light to medium at most coverage.

Off to the mall I go, running into Sephora first, I finally ended up at MAC. Here, I was approached and asked what I was looking for, where the MAC lady told me about the Studio Sculpt Concealer. It was my idea to pick up the Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powder because Face & Body leaves a very skinlike finish, so, I wanted a powder that wasn't totally matte.

I picked these up in both the lightest shades, Light for the Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, and NC 15 for the Studio Sculpt Concealer. Here are my thoughts:
Studio Sculpt Concealer:
  • Full Coverage
  • Great when blended on with a fluffy brush
  • Looks nice for about 4 hours
  • Settles in lines
  • Not for oily skin
  • Not for spot treatment
Mineralize Skinfinish Natural:
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to apply with a Kabuki or fluffy powder brush
  • Natural Finish
  • Doesn't control oil
  • No color payoff
  • Melts away after about 4 hours
So as you can tell, I was not a fan of either of these and they went back to MAC after a few days of trial and several errors. I had really hoped to like them, however, I think I'm just not a fan of MAC face products. I've noticed more and more how sensitive my skin is and I don't think I can get them to work. Studio Fix Powder Foundation and Studio Tech really aren't for me either.

So, I continue my powder hunt, but I did pick up BeneFit's Boi-ing Concealer, so, we'll see how that works for me.

I hope this helps! Thanks!
