The packaging of the Mineralize Foundation is similar to Moistureblend in that it comes in a compact with a sponge applicator on the bottom of the compact. Although I usually say that I'm a MAC NC25, I really am slightly darker than that but not as dark as a NC30. I understand that this Mineralize foundation runs slightly darker so I was hoping that the NC25 would work out well.
I use a flat top brush to apply this foundation on my face. While it is a cream, it isn't as heavy as one might think. The coverage is probably medium and buildable. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin either. The Moistsureblend foundation was definitely a heavier foundation with medium-full to full coverage. You could feel yourself wearing the foundation. I guess that I'm slowly being more accepting of my ugly freckles and am using less coverage than I used to.

As you can see, the NC25 blends in nicely with my coloring, even with my neck. You can't see a significant difference like you could when I tried out the Etude House Precious Mineral BB cream. You can see the picture here. There is also very minimal oxidization while wearing the MAC Mineralize Foundation. For those with oiler skin, you may need to blot periodically throughout the day. You will also want to set it with powder. I didn't set it with powder. Depending on how hot and humid it is, it will not be as long wearing and you may need to touch up at some point during the day.
