Hey Beauties, Welcome to April. The lockdown is beginning to take its toll on everyone. I hope you are safe, washing your hands / sanitizing and practicing social distancing. Working from our various homes is now the new norm, thank God for the internet. Looking presentable is key that’s why I reviewed these powders that can give you a natural finish.
Back to the subject matter, Let me share more thoughts on the Compact powders that I have used and I love. I would love to share why I love them with you.
First up on the list, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Face Powder. luxurious, slow-baked domed face powder with low-level pearlized pigments that provide a dimensional yet natural-satin finish.No need for touch as the makeup stays perfect all day.
Sephora Microsmooth Baked Foundation powder is the second best. It is an ultra-light foundation that blends effortlessly for a natural look and Sunkissed finish.
The different types of Skin
The type of skin plays a major role in determining the type of powder to buy. There are 3 types of skin.
Oily Skin: You have excess oil all over your face.
Combination Skin: You shine only on your T zone (forehead, nose, and chin)
Dry Skin: Your face doesn’t shine at all and you sometimes experience flakiness on your face.
The coverage they both give is medium to full. To achieve a perfect finish, use a bit of foundation and spray on a mattifying makeup spray. Your Makeup will stay put.
What the powder looks like?
Similarities between both powders

Where to get them and affordability
You can get the MAC Mineralise Skin FInish at any MAC Retail outlet in Nigeria. The one in Lagos is located in Ikeja City Mall and The Palms in Lekki. If you enter the store you get to try on the powders for free.
The prices are subject to the amount the beauty retailer sells. The MAC Mineralise is N13,000 – N15000 or $36 – $41 and Sephora is N9000_ N11000 or $27-$30
These are my Favorite and best Compact powders, I would love to hear what yours are in the comment section.
