MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in 'Give me Sun!'

Recently I purchased the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in 'Give me Sun!'
This is a product I have used before as my friend who I travelled with to Europe with owned it and it was always a good way for us to get that sun kissed look before we went out. I have been saying to myself I am going to pick this product up for such a long time and until now have never actually gone out and purchased it.
This is the first MAC Mineralize Skinfinish I own and so far I am pretty impressed. I fake tan a lot of the time so finding a good shade of bronzer can sometimes deem to be difficult. When I'm not fake tanned I look for a subtle bronze colour as I am so naturally white especially in the winter that bronzers can so easily show up to harsh on my face but when I fake tan those bronzers are no longer dark enough to show up against the darker foundation. Give me Sun is a lovely shade to warm up your face and make it look like you've been sitting outside in the sun all day.
Hence the name Give me Sun.
 
I find with this Skinfinish I have to be very light handed as the product is extremely pigmented and you can easily go overboard with one dip but in saying that one of my favourite things about this product is it's ability to blend, you're never left with any harsh lines.
The more you blend the more of a natural finish you'll get. I would be extremely careful with this product for those with fair skin as it's not my go to when I'm not wearing fake tan. This Skinfinish has quite a bit of an orange undertone and can quickly become too orange if to much is applied. I find that this product also lasts all day and doesn't at go cakey over the top of foundation.
 
 
 
With the product being $49 Australian dollars it is definitely on the pricier side, but I wouldn't let the price scare you away. You get so much product in each Skinfinish that I think it'd be impossible to finish one in your lifetime. I am a huge sucker for buying 3 or 4 cheap products for the same price as the expensive product and then end up buying the expensive product anyway.

Also you can never go wrong with MAC's packaging, The MAC Give me Sun is in matte black casing with a decent sized mirror. Which makes it a great on the go product.
 
 
 All in all I think the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish is an extremely good product and I highly recommend for those looking for a good warm bronzer, just remember you can easily go overboard so light handed is the way to go, more can always be added but it's extremely difficult to take off.

Let me know of any great bronzers you like!

Lots of Love,

  33. That's great! I used to tan a lot at the pool and the lake when i was in high school and college. Now I just don't have time anymore. Staying inside too much has made me so pale. I don't using bronzer because it gives a shimmer on my cheekbones and in pictures, my face looks oily. Is that just me? :P
    THis looks like a nice product, and I don't see any shimmer in it. I might try it out. Thanks for the recommendation, Liz! :)
