Most Helpful Positive Review A Tad Tricky but Worth the Hype
I've hear a lot of different opinions on this product so I decided to give it a try. I went to my local counter and was first matched to medium deep, however prior to purchase the employee advised that I get the dark. She applied it and at the store it looked great. I made my purchase and noticed after time it oxidized and it looked like I had a beautiful Hershey's chocolate glow all over my face. Though the color was pretty it didn't match me at all. I was really shocked because in the container it seemed to be a great match. I went back the next day and got the original color match medium deep. It looks light in the container but it is truly the perfect oxidation for my complexion. I wear it both with just concealer, and to set my Match Masters 7.0 foundation. I always get compliments whenever I wear it. So this is worth it you just have to find your correct match. I only gave it four stars because of the difficulty to find the perfect shade can be a little tricky.
I like the mirror compact its sleek, however you have to be careful when opening it. I think the bottom should have a small puff for touch ups since the mirror is there, but I must admit I'm a dry skin girl and once I place this on with a big powder brush it stays put. Overall beautiful finish, and this a great product!
Most Helpful Critical Review Great but not for oily skin
Love the powder however it doesn't stay put on my face. I've got combination skin with T-zone being EXTREMLY oily (half an hour of make up and my nose becomes a waterfall of oil). Its not even T-zone its JUST my nose. This powder the texture and look of it is GORGEOUS. I got matched with Medium Dark and it looks good first 10 minutes but then it oxidises like crazy and it ends up being three shades darker. I use it almost as a bronzer because its waaaaay too dark so beaware.. the colour may LOOK right on your skin in the beginning but as the day goes on it changes colour. For people with dry skin i think this would be amazing. The powder is sooO soft and it gives an instant glow and radiance to my face (it doesn't cover anything). It would be amazing if the colour suited i would use it over my make up for the glow however as for staying power for people with skin like mine this wouldn't be enough as a setting powder. I tend to use it directly after makeup and not sure if this "glow" contributes to my skin looking extra oily afterwards or not but I'm going to be sticking to my select sheer pressed powder for now. This was an alternative cos I wanted to try something new but am definitely going back to that. Mineralise Skin Finish Natural is very light and feathery and isn't as heavy as select sheer but for staying power and controlling my oils this definitely doesn't do the trick :(

I have been doing my makeup for 7 years now, and WOW this changed the foundation game for me. It gives a very sheer, soft, velvety coverage so you can wear it alone on natural days or on top of your liquid foundation for a beautiful plump skin look. It does not look powdery AT ALL. I know this product has been around for a long time, but I had never tried it until now and I'm absolutely in love. I wore this in 100 degree heat and had sweat pouring down my face, and my makeup did NOT budge, and this was the only new product I had used on my face. My foundation looks so much more skin like instead of cakey, and even looks smoother around my acne bumps. Because of this powder, I can go in with a tinted moisturizer instead of a full coverage foundation and look absolutely flawless with this product on top. I've never been so impressed with a face product before!!!

I rarely use foundation so I only use this skinfinish powder. I have been using this for about 6years plus now and I get compliments all the time. It makes my skin look flawless and that's without foundation or anything else
Best coverage and lightweight foundation I've found
Amity from Clearfield, PA
This product is amazing! I have acne prone skin and scars from acne. This powder covers them up without even feeling like I have anything on my skin. It also helps keep my oily skin under control. I've been using for about 8 months now and would definitely suggest it!
I'm in luv

I have this in two shades medium plus and medium golden I'm nc25 nc30 in summer I love the finish it blurs pores and fine lines its buttery it is a finishing powder not a setting powder but it just completely your makeup look give it a try
Lina from Lake Elsinore
This powder gives me such a nice glow, I'm absolutely in love! Highly recommend
Awesome for touch ups
Liz from Tulsa, OK
I carry this powder in my put for touch ups throughout the day. I also use it to set my tzone. I use a brush with this so I can easily control coverage, however a sound would be very handy. I've never seen a pressed powder not include one? oh well, still love it!
medium dark for my nc42 complexion
Suncakes from Washington

Dark and Lovely from Duluth, Georgia
This is a product I used several years ago and stop using to try Lancome's setting powder.
Gr8 if they have ur undertone
Stina from NJ
I have collected almost all of the shades and find that I can use a couple under the eye to very lightly set concealer, but not my whole face. The undertones are very pink on me (my perfect foundation match is Nars Aruba). If the MSFN looks like it works in some lights, it looks crazy in others. I've given up and won't bother purchasing them anymore. But the people I've given them away too LOVE THEM.
I would buy this product again.
Monica from Canton, MI
Without being able to try the product to make sure the color matched my skin, I'm very happy that the info on the site enabled me to make a great choice.
It covers my red skin and sits on the skin very well 🙌
Dan from Lacey wa
I use this product lightly with a big brush. Heavy coverage makes it too thick
My go to powder!! The Best!!

So natural on your skin!! Love It
works well for my dry skin, but not oily nose
Alix Lola from New York, NY
I treated myself to this Mac powder for my birthday after hearing the hype for years. Pro: I have very dry skin and wear super hydrating foundations, so I need to set them lightly and powders will sometimes dry me out too much. This powder does not dry me out, so I'm pleased with that. Con: I have a very oily nose (the only part of my face that's oily) and this powder breaks up my foundation on my nose. Overall, I'm glad I got this powder on sale (I'll use it everywhere except my nose), but there are cheaper dupes out there!
Juls from Dallas
I realized (finally!) that my bare minerals powder was making my skin look chalky and older than I am. I went on the hunt, a.k.a. Google search, for a new powder that would make my skin look fresh. After several searches and many review readings… I decided on this powder. I am so glad I did! I always used drugstore powder in the past until I tried bare minerals. This is hands-down the best face powder I have ever used and I noticed that it makes my skin look so soft, smooth and just the perfect amount of dewy look but while setting my makeup and ridding of unwanted shine. I will say as one caveat… I was surprised that I needed the "medium "color since my skin is pretty light.

I have been using this powder for a while, and I love the light coverage it gives while setting my foundation.
I would buy this product again!

Best powder for dry skin
Emma from Netherlands
I adore this powder, its great on its own as a medium coverage foundation. I also like the compact its nice and sturdy
So natural I couldn't believe it wasn't an actual foundation
Happy Customer from Florida
I never looked at the reviews before purchasing this. I just happen to see it on the Ulta app while browsing for foundation. When I tell you it's the best mistake I've made . I absolutely love it!!! It's quick and easy to apply . And I get compliments all the time on how flawless my skin looks. I've worn it with and without concealer and each time it was perfect!
I would definitely purchase again
Queen from GA
