The perfect application - ELF powder brush and MAC MSF

I brought MAC mineralize skinfinish natural because of all the hype, but until now I wasn't too impressed as it would end up looking chalky unless I applied the tinest bit with a kabuki.

However I'm pleased to say that since trying it with my ELF studio powder brush it has been anything but chalky. It takes away the shine and gives a little bit of coverage, whilst leaving my skin looking naturally radiant.

The brush is super soft and fluffy, yet the bristles are quite firm at the same time. No matter how much I swirl it in my MSF it doesn't pick up much powder, so its really easy to control how much product I apply and if I need more coverage I just apply some more and buff it in, giving perfect results each time.

Are you a fan of the mineralize skinfinish powder, or do you think its an over-rated product?

  2. Jo- I'm a NC25 and I got the medium shade, which is just a touch too pink but unless I apply too much its normally not noticable x

  8. I thought the same as you, looks chalky, makes the skin look worse off than what it is etc. But, I might have to buy myself one of those brushes to try it out. Thanks for the tip :) xx

  14. I really like the look of that brush. I keep lusting over MAC ones but I'll never be able to afford the ones I want, so those ELF ones might be the answer to my MAC prayers.. Maybe!?

    Thanks for this xx
