MAC's collaboration with Caitlyn Jenner is an interesting one and with extra hype all around I've  been looking forward to try them products out to see if there's any substance to the all the drama. So I got a little spendy at the MAC store and got myself the M.A.C. Caitlyn Jenner Mineral Skinfinish Natural in the shade of Compassion. It just looks so stunning with it's gold and black  casing but how does it fare in terms of color payoff, finishing and longevity ? Here's my verdict...

M.A.C Caitlyn Jenner Mineral Skinfinish Natural is a luxurious, slow-baked domed face powder in cool brown shade with low-level pearlized pigments providing a dimensional yet natural-satin finish. Can be used to contour skin, set foundation and touch up makeup throughout the day. Features MAC 77-Mineral Complex and vitamin E. 

You'll LIKE it if you have dry and light skin tone as it makes a great contour. 

You'll HATE it if you fall under the darker skin tone category because this just won't make the cut as a contour or setting foundation. 

Having hit the MAC store less than a month ago, this Caitlyn Jenner Mineral Skinfinish Natural is designed to contour skin, set foundation and touch up makeup. If you are already a fan of MAC products, you'll definitely want to know how the Mineral Skinfinish Natural works so let me cut to the chase. This new shade Compassion has a brown bronzy color with a shimmer finish. For my skin tone, this works great as a contour, giving me that sucked in cheek effect and as well as adding warmth to my face. But do note that, the color payoff is slightly under expectation, I would have to swirl my brush over and over again on the powder to get a more pigmented and visible contour. Even after doing that, it doesn't seem to translate on my photo (as above), which I'm not sure why. 

The thing I like about this is the fact that it has a smooth and silky finish on my face, except on my nose bridge area which gets cakey and patchy after 5 to 6 hours, when my T-zone starts to oil up. Anyway's with that smooth and silky finish, I would love to use this to set my foundation but the shade, Compassion is just too dark for me and even if I have skin tone that matches the shade, I highly doubt I would use it all over my face. With the shimmer in the formula, I might look like a glowing disco ball. So it's not really a wise idea to have it as a setting powder. 

Overall, setting without the cake face ? Hmmm.. Not for oily skin gals. Contour and define your face ? Yes, but you might need to repeat a few times to get a good color payoff. MAC Caitlyn Jenner Mineral Skinfinish Natural (Compassion) is like something you'll find yourself looking in the camera and not being able to pinpoint exactly what it has done, unless you really slap the color on. A bronzer being billed at RM 159 as a stash staple ? I think I will go with The Body Shop Baked-To-Last-Bronzer, a more budget friendly version mineralize bronzer, which works very much the same. 

Dupe for MAC Compassion : Colour Pop Poolside Bronzer (90% similar) - according to temptalia.com

  1. I'm tempted to get this too cos there're so many hypes all around but based on your swatch, I think I'm not going to get it. The colour pay-off is such a failure for MAC products cos my MAC collections give me excellent colour pay -ff so far. Thanks for the review Sarah!
