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. Nuanced had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and lightly dusty consistency that was incredibly easy to blend out on the skin. I was surprised the texture didn’t emphasize pores, but it applied in such a way that it gave a good sheen instead. On me, the color started to break down after seven hours of wear.
