MAC Mineralize SPF 15 Loose Powder Foundation Dark : Review, Swatch

I buy products just for the way it is designed or looks or just the color. It was during my MAC purchase I saw something that was not in the usual pan. I was curious and asked the MUA about it and she said it is a loose powder with SPF 15. I asked her to suggest a shade for me and she suggested me 'Dark' for my NC 44 skin tone. I was in a hurry so I did a quick trial and even without it I would have bought it for sure !


The cute looking box comes with the loose powder packed inside. The lid has an applicator attached to it, which is nothing but a soft sponge meant for dry application but unfortunately it drinks up a lot of product. Also, the applicator is not very soft on skin so I use my kabuki for application. However during travel and whenever I forget to carry a separate brush the applicator comes handy. There is an extra sponge provided  if the current one wears off ! The powder with SPF 15 provides light to medium coverage and best suits summer. I am sure I will be thoroughly enjoy using it this summer and I love the medium coverage it provides. I need not worry about retouch for the next 3-4 hours. This is another absolute love from MAC :D

  • The fact that it has SPF 15.
  • Easy to carry along and application is easy too.
  • I love the packaging which is quite unusual in MAC.
  • Comes with an applicator.
  • Provides light to medium coverage, which I always prefer.
  • Feels so light on skin and gives a natural finish.
  • Lasts for good 3-4 hours.
  • Keeps the skin away from oiliness.
  • Best suits summers.

  • The applicator takes a lot of product and it is not so soft on my skin. So I prefer using my kabuki for application.
  • I doubt if it is available here in India !


The cost of MAC Mineralize SPF 15 Loose Powder Foundation is $40 for 8.5 g, which is Rs.2200 approximately.

Can you see how even my skin looks?


I love how different the packaging is and how light it feels and looks on my skin. This will be my best friend during summers and this summer is not an exception too. I have already started using this almost every day and I like the medium coverage it provides. Wish the applicator was good then I wouldn't have any complaints at all. I absolutely completely totally love this product as it is so apt for this season.
