A big hello to my IBJ pretties <3
Owing to my stupid pink toned complexion I have never been much able to use and enjoy blush L whenever I dab a teeny bit on its much too obvious and detectable! If that’s not the biggest tragedy then what is! So I have to lean back on these multi-tasking heroes whenever I want a hint of flush on my cheeks! TBS makes lovely shimmerwaves and MAC makes droolworthy mineralize skinfinishes I picked up this one a few months back after the S.A tried it on me at the store! *temptations are very bad :P* it is called Perfectly Poised and came as a part of the *divine night* collection.
MAC Perfectly Poised Mineralize Skinfinish Review
What MAC Says-
Perfectly Poised is a two-in-one product that features a section that’s described as a “creamy beige with pinkish purplish sheen” and a larger area described as a “bronzy coral with golden tones.”
Price- 1900/- INR :-/
The packaging is typical MAC blush packaging with a sturdy transparent lid and a matte black round pan and has a transparent plastic cover over the skinfinish. It is easy to carry around and did not break/crack when clumsy yours truly dropped it.
The texture was a tad powdery having a tendency to fly but is very smooth and fine-milled J it applies smoothly and blends very easily 😀 if you have a lot of open pores go easy on it as it does accentuate them a bit K
The Inner part is a pale, cool-toned beige with a pink, pearlescent sheen. *this is the part I use the most as I am a huggee fan of highlighters!
The Outer part is a warm, medium, slightly muted orange with a frosted, metallic sheen. I tried to contour my face a bit with this but of course made me look like I had shimmery tan lines across my cheeks L epic fail! This looks amazing when swirled with its inner pearly sister and applied on the apples of cheeks with a light hand <3 just a hint of flush underlined with a healthy glow! Me loves it!
The pigmentation is very good indeed and 1 swirl is enough for the required flush
Lasting power is great even in this weather and lasts a minimum of 5+ hours without streaking/melting!
The pros of MAC Perfectly Poised Mineralize Skinfinish
1> Travel-friendly sturdy pan packaging
2> The texture is very smooth and finely milled- applies evenly and blends easily
3> The 2 regions complement each other beautifully and can be swirled together to get a healthy glowy flush
4> The inner part can be used as a gorgeous highlighter.
5> Great pigmentation- 1 swipe is enough
6> Good staying power- lasts on my oily skin for 5+ hours.
7> Does not streak/melt
The cons of MAC Perfectly Poised Mineralize Skin finish
For ladies with problematic, oily skin with a lot of open pores go easy on products like these as they magnify the open pores and :/
My rating– 4/5!
Do I recommend?
I personally love MAC skinfinishes to death and lust badly after them 😛 the color combinations they come in, the glow they give, their superb quality and new LE ones popping up now and then make these a worthy looking-into product *_* recommended!
On my face- 😛 *pardon my disheveled hair and tired face*
That’s it today girlies J hope you liked going through my post! Stay pretty and keep smiling everyone!
