Pricey vs Priceline: Pressed Powders

by Madeleine Borgersen

Pressed powders are the perfect defence for oily skinned lads and lasses that don’t want to lose their look by lunch but do you need to pay a fortune for one?

Pricey vs Priceline: Pressed Powders

Pricey: MAC – Mineralize SkinFinish – $49

One of my first MAC products was their Mineralized Skinfinish in natural. A pressed and baked mineral powder the pressed powder gives you a matte finish and helps to lock your foundation in place.

MAC’s new packaging comes with an inbuilt mirror (I’m still on the old – these babies last forever!) for touch up applications and can be applied (like I do!) with a simple makeup cotton pad to specific areas of oiliness or with a light kabuki brush for an all over set.

MAC’s range comes with 15 shades to choose from, making it a great option for darker or extremely light skin tones.

The MAC pressed powder can also be used alone as a light coverage foundation. Apply some concealer to spots you’d prefer to cover and then dust the powder from the middle of your face and out to get an even light coverage.

    Love these high end vs drugstore comparisons, trying to break my Mac addiction slowly. (ps Madeline, you might want to check the pagination for Chrome, I can see the 1 of 3 but no arrows in that browser. It works fine on safari 😉

    • Weird, Chrome and Safari both use webkit. Might be your cache? I restyled them last night.. Thanks for letting me know though I’ll get a few others to check it out their ends too! Yeah I was a massive MAC fan but slowly moving away. Still love their eyeshadows though! x

  2. Yeah definitely do try it if you don’t have sensitive skin! They’re both wonderful! x
