MAC House of Petunia Mineralize Skinfinish Review & Swatches

House of Petunia

MAC House of Petunia Mineralize Skinfinish ($34.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a light-medium gold with strong, warm, almost peachy undertones with a smooth, metallic sheen and faint copper micro-sparkle that was more randomly strewn through. It had good color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with two to three layers.

The texture was smooth to the touch, soft and yielding without being too powdery. The highlighter applied well to bare skin and blended out readily without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

The description has changed over the years--the most current description (as of 4/21/2018) is that it is a "slow-baked, velvety soft, domed face powder with a radiant finish" that can be used to highlight "the high points of the face" or blended "all over for a sheer luminous polish to the skin." The sheerness seems to be more in referenced to the finish than the coverage, as the usage now states to use the product damp for an even stronger sheen.

In general, the Mineralize Skinfinish formula tends to be more metallic to glittery with medium to opaque coverage--it really depends on the shade. The texture of the formula has been refined over the years with current editions being fairly smooth, blendable, and easy to use. The wear has varied from six to eight hours on me with newer shades and variations lasting closer to eight hours on average.
