Dry skin needs intense moisturisation and when a foundation is used on bare dry skin , its hell !!Yeah I know that skin is super dry and I have always been on a look out for a foundation that does not dry me out.But yeah , I can always use a moisturizer underneath but even that does not quench my skins' thirst!So a moisturizing foundation is something that tops my priority.My recent addiction in foundation was MAC studio fix foundation(reviewed here), so when I heard MAC mineralize moisture foundation launched , it was an instant buy for me.Now do I like the studio fix or mineralize foundation ?Read on to know more about this wonder potion!
Product Type: Minerlize moisturizing foundation.
Product Price: 1900INR
Product Claim by the company: A combination of powders creates an optical blurring effect that almost diminishes imperfections and fine lines, for a more even tone. The light-reflecting, natural satin finish makes skin appear refined, revitalized and refreshed with a new purity, softly lit from within. SPF 15 adds the perfect finishing touch of sun protection. Features our 77-Mineral Complex, Shea Butter and Vitamin E.( take on MAC Mineralize Moisture Foundation SPF 15:
This time around , I had to pick NC 40 instead of NC 42 , as the make up artist at MAC said that this foundation oxidizes so recommended a shade lighter.Though I was happy , very happy with my studio fix foundation ,I had to pick this , because it has the goodness of minerals and says moisture foundation and there was no backing upon this one.
NOW that I have both , I understand which one works good for my climate.I live near the shore , ours being a coastal city , its humid ,very humid most of the times, sweaty too.And when I used the mineralize moisture foundation ,it just didn't stay in place.I was looking sweaty , watery as if the foundation was running down my cheeks.Though otherwise it blends easily , has more runny consistency than the studio fix.I tried using a mineral finishing powder , but just did not work well in my city.May be it would work in more drier climates.
Nonetheless worth a try only if you are not residing in coastal ares where it has high humidity.
Since I will never change from the place where I stay I guess I stick to my Studio fix.
You might be thinking what about coverage , for me not any at all.Likes:
1.Unlike other foundations , this one comes with its own pump dispenser.
2.Blends well and does not get cakey.
3.Mineral sunscreen of SPF 15.
1.Does not work in humid climates even on very dry skin types.
2. Oxidises , so make sure to pick up the right shade.Wait until you have shopped with the foundation on and then buy it.
3.A little runny than most foundations.
4.Sheer coverage only.
Would I buy this again? No ,not until I move to a drier place,will give it a try when I go to drier places with no or less humidity.
Would I recommend this to anyone?YES , dry skin types living in dry places.
