Mineralise Skin Finish // Medium Deep // £21
I've only recently got into contouring and wanted a colour that would sit well on its own as a contour or just a standard bronzer, I've used the mineralised skin finish before but as an all over powder so I would have never thought of buying one as a contour powder in a slightly darker colour.  Admittedly now after using it I wouldn't recommend it for somebody with my skin tone to buy this as a contour product purely because it is a little too unnatural to create that 'shadow' effect that contouring is. 

A slow baked powder packed with minerals for your skin, it is a really soft product so it instantly becomes quite powdery meaning it diffuses over your skin surface giving a flawless airbrushed finish. A lot of people use these powders in particular from Mac as a foundation or setting product meaning a big kabuki or all over face brush is perfect but in this case this colour in particular is purely used for my cheeks so I have to be super careful with the application using a smaller brush as you can easily have far too much on your brush so be sure to dust it off to make sure you don't over-do the bronzed look, trust me I've already messed up a few times with this, my face was literally glowing!  

It is quite a deep orange tint bronzer which sits lovely without the need for any blusher, usually I wouldn't ever go for anything as intense colour wise, I tend to stick with bronzers such as 'Hoola' from Benefit which is quite a dull tone compared with this one. It has definitely added warmth to my skin which is always helpful with the outburst of hot weather us Brits have had recently! I think I'll definitely look into the Mineralised Skin Finishes in future for an all over powder as well as other tones of bronzers as they sit and feel lovely on the skin, not at all heavy and create that smooth finish that everybody wishes for.
