The Mineralize Skinfinish formula is described as a “velvety soft” face powder with a “radiant finish” that can be used to “add highlights to the high points of the face.” The Mineralize Skinfinish Collection for spring features five new, limited edition shades — the collection debuts on March 31st online. Sunny Side had nice color payoff with a soft, smooth, and easily blended consistency that wasn’t too powdery or too firm. The texture sat well on the skin without emphasizing the natural texture or the look of pores. It looks more like a very warm, yellow-orange based bronzer, so it can certainly add warmth to several skin tones. I liked the soft glow it yielded as the powder was buffed into the skin. On me, the color wore for seven and a half hours before fading.
