MAC Mineralize Foundation with SPF 15 Review, Swatches and FOTD
MAC is like a dream for every girl. Since when I have stepped in this makeup world I have been hearing all praises for MAC. MAC lippies, MAC blushes, MAC Foundation all are like fantasies for us. Everyone seems to tell they are the best in quality and final look too. But sadly they come with a heavy price tag. So, I did a lot of research before finalizing a product. But as foundations is the most important product for a clean polished makeup look. I thought of buying foundation as my first MAC purchase. Also, I read in an interview that our desi diva Kareena Kapoor swears by MAC Foundations. Now, I am clean bowled by Bebo’s makeup as well as no-makeup looks. So, what do i needed more. I headed to MAC to get my dream product.

In Detail MAC Mineralize Foundation with SPF 15 Review
The foundation comes in the shape of a compact. This compact has two compartments. The first upper compartment has the foundation and mirror whereas the lower compartment has sponge. The packaging I must say is quite sturdy and convenient. For touch-ups you always have a mirror and sponge. So, don’t need to worry ladies. Carry it along with you on day outs or even holidays. It is quite light and doesn’t take much of space. So, quite travel friendly I must say.
The foundation is cream based which makes it quite perfect for dry skin. The foundation has a medium coverage. But you can always build on the coverage. And trust me if you end up applying more just give it 5-10 minutes to settle and it gives a smooth flawless finish. The sponge makes the application much more easier. It helps in blending foundation on face a lot. Sponge makes the application quite neat.
Also, as far as staying power is concerned foundation easily stays upto 8-10 hours. It neither melts in sun nor in sweat. The Foundation is specifically designed for dry skin. The cream helps in soothing dry flaky patches. The finish is semi-matte. It gives skin a beautiful healthy glow.
