A Holy Grail Face Powder MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
I’m not the first person, and I certainly won’t be the last, to rave about MAC Prep and Prime Transparent Finishing Powder. Oh, my. I haven’t ever really been a face powder girl, but my skin has been changing a little recently, and I have found that makeup isn’t enjoying hanging about on my nose and chin as much as it used to. My sister told me about this… and while it isn’t a fixing powder per se, it does exactly what I need it to do.
The powder is very, very very, like SUPER finely milled. So fine. This means it applies like a dream. I swirl it on my face as the woman on the counter showed me; rather than sweeping it on, I kind of twirl the brush a little in my fingers and I move it up and down my nose and chin.
The Transparent Finishing Powder leaves my skin looking soft and velvety and makes my foundation really last. It’s not too mattifying, it has more of a velvety effect and I haven’t seen any evidence of it caking anywhere; as a matter of fact I wore it over my Estee Lauder Double Wear which usually cakes on my something chronic, and I got no caking with this over the top. WINNING (oops, that’s not a thing anymore, is it?).
I don’t always totally finish with this, I usually sweep the Bobbi Brown finishing powder lightly over this, but I am totally, totally sold on this powder. I love it. Next time I am at a MAC counter I am going to look at a few more in this line of Prep + Prime.
