I can tell you now that I haven't used any other powders other than this for the past 5 or 6 years. Well, I have but I always always return to this one as the others just can't compare. I am in the shade Medium Plus and it is the perfect colour for me. I apply my BB cream and then leave it to sit for a few minutes before I dust the mineral powder on my face with my Real Techniques Powder brush (Which is also amazing by the way).
This powder has the power of making your skin look poreless and smooth but makes it look like you have flawless skin. My skin seems to look better after one or two hours after I've applied face makeup for some reason but I do have to re apply powder once or twice during the day to keep it looking fresh.
I'm so excited to try the mineralize blushes from MAC now after I've seen quite a few blog posts up about their new collection for Spring!
