Hey MAC fans! Today I’m featuring their Next to Nothing pressed powder in the shade Medium Dark (for NC37, NC40, NC41 skin tones)
I actually bought the foundation, powder and the two brushes they released for this collection way back when they first launched it this year, but my package was stolen (in Istanbul) so I kind of gave up writing about it. 3 months ago, my husband surprised me with this powder compact (he didn’t buy the other stuff) so I can now write about the powder for you 🙂
Next to Nothing: Has a very luminous finish compared to all MAC powders. You can see it for yourself below:
(top-bottom: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural: Medium Dark, MAC Next to Nothing: Medium Dark, MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation: NC40)
If you look closer in the above swatches, the Mineralize Skinfinish gives the most natural finish, and the Studio Fix Powder gives the most flawless matte finish (keep in mind that Studio Fix Powder is full coverage) However, Next to Nothing appears slightly lighter in shade and luminous than other two powders.
Because it appears slightly lighter, I use this powder with either a slightly darker foundation or with my trusty Face & Body foundation (because it’s super sheer) otherwise I appear a bit too light on the face compared to the rest of my body.
For the luminosity, I think this powder works best for normal-dry skin. If you’re very oily, I would say stay away from this powder.
Today I used it with my all-time favorite Face & Body (my shade is C5) and I love how natural I look!
I think this powder works so well with Face & Body! I didn’t use it under my eyes though. I went ahead with Mineralized Skinfinish under eyes and lightly dusted the rest of my face with Next to Nothing.
Price: US$ 28.00
I recommend this Powder if you have normal-dry skin, and you like to have a nice, dewy look. It feels very light and looks beautiful on photos and in real life.
I hope this review helps you!
See you soon,
