Current HG finishing powder: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural

There are some powders that, if your skin is bad, will look bad on you no matter how you try. It's mostly about texture. If you have a lot of bumps and open pores for example, a powder with any amount of shimmer will be most unflattering. That was my case with the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural (~P1,800), which I reviewed two years ago. I liked it at first, but realized it was making me look bumpier and pore-ier than I actually am.

After the initial high of finally getting my hands on it I was also disappointed that it didn't have a lot of coverage. For someone with a lot of uneven areas, that simply won't do! So it was relegated to the back of my vanity as I explored other powders.

Early this year I unearthed it and decided to give it another chance. What do you know, it looks fantastic on me now! It makes my skin so pretty and glowy! I like how thin the texture is - this is especially important when I wear thicker foundation. 

So yes I've been picking this up almost every time I wear makeup. It finally works for me! Have you tried products like this, one that you didn't like so much but eventually changed your mind about?
