This powder is luxury from right down to the packaging itself...
I have been wanting a high-end powder for quite some time now. Usually, I have always had it in my head that powder is powder and that I was just wasting my money if I spent more than a couple of pounds on it. However, as I am sure you can imagine, diving into the beauty blogger world has really opened my eyes to many new things, and having a good quality powder to set your make up is one of them. I don't suffer too much with oily skin and my make up is pretty good at staying in-tack for most of the day with minimal touch ups. However, recently I have been using Nars Sheer Glow foundation and at £31 a bottle I felt as though my base needed a complimentary product that would aid with the flawless yet dewy finish Sheer glow provides. It may sound silly to some, or that I have more money than sense, but I just didn't want to use an expensive high-end foundation, to then down play the look by applying a £2 powder.
I have read many a review about Mac's Mineralize Skinfinish Natural setting powder. I spoke to the girl at the counter for a while explaining that I wanted a powder that would set my make up but not necessarily take away the natural dewy look created by Sheer Glow. She pointed me in the direction of this beauty and applied some on top of my make up. Due to the fact that it is mineral based and in the shade medium, it not only sets my make up but it also adds a touch of extra coverage as well as maintaining the dewy look I want to achieve due it's light reflecting particles.
At £23 a pop, it wasn't a decision I made lightly however if the product itself wasn't good enough, the packaging was  a definite swaying factor. The domed powder is encased in a beautifully sleek, black compact. It has a matte finish that looks very sophisticated and a magnetic clasp which gives a very reassuring snap when closed. Inside is a handy little mirror, perfect for touching up make up whilst on the go. I am so happy with this product so far and can really see myself re-purchasing.
