Used this for years now...it has never faulted me, but never wowed me either. It is good for what it is, a light coverage, natural looking powder...but there are cheaper options out there.

A staple in my makeup kit
I'm onto my second pan of this product, and to be completely honest my feelings towards MAC's cult favourite mineralise skin finish natural are rather mixed. Sometimes I feel this powder is fantastic to lightly set foundation, giving a tanned healthy glow to my skin and a flawless complexion. Other days I just feel this powder makes my skin look down right cakey. The coverage is rather light, and on good skin days I'll wear this finely milled powder on it's own. On days when I want a full coverage I'll use it to set my foundation to increase its longevity throughout the day. I do feel MAC's mineralise skin finish tends to grab at dry patches, so dry skin ladies beware. Another way to use this product is to apply it damp with a brush and buff it into the skin. Being a baked mineralised product, applying it wet will give a fuller, more flawless coverage. All in all, I think I will continue to repurchase this powder as I do think it's a great staple for any womans' makeup kit.

My HG powder (for now...)
I love this! I love that it can be a great setting powder that doesn't mute cream blushes too much whilst at the same time being a great option over concealer when I want my skin tone to be even but am not in the mood for a face of makeup.
I also love that my colour is a bit yellow-toned in the pan. It means I can cool down any inexpensive foundations as they tend to run slightly on the pink side for my liking.

I use this to set my foundation, it works wonders, doesn't sit in lines and best of all doesn't cake. Nothing to complain about!
Day-to-day I apply it with a real techniques powder brush, but it works fine with any large fluffy brush too.

Great for everyone!
I love this powder!
It gives a really nice, natural finish to your makeup, and lasts for a really long time. the coverage is OK as well if you have pretty good skin and don't need much coverage. this looks flawless and really applies easily as well. Love it:)

Great natural finish powder
This is my most used powder. I love the natural, glowy finish it gives instead of mattifying like most powders. Herein lies the caveat - that it doesn't control oil well. I use a seperate mattifying powder on my T-zone and use the MAC MSF natural all over to add extra coverage and set my foundation. Even though I am super pale (NC15/NW15) I use medium and find it gives my skin a bit of warmth.

This stuff is the best! It's one of my all time favourite foundations. It really has a natural finish to it, easily buildable and offers good coverage. Best applied with a foundation brush

Great natural powder
I love this powder and have been through a number of them. It is light and doesn't feel heavy or look cakey on the skin. It still leaves skin looking natural. I use this to set foundation but have also used this by itself to provide a light coverage. It applies smoothly and the powder is very finely milled. Beautiful product!
