Features and benefits of cosmetics
- MAS cosmetics are of high quality and correspondingly high price;

The composition of the MAS mineral powder contains 77 minerals and vitamin E to prevent dermis dryness. Brand products are enriched with antibacterial elements, which helps to avoid inflammation and clogging of pores.
The classification of the composition of MAS powder allows us to say that there are no greasy bases such as oils and wax, fragrances, talc and essential components that could cause irritation to the skin or interfere with its normal functioning.
MAS powder products are divided not only by their type (friable, compact, baked), but also by the degree of coverage and shades.
- MAS transparent powder serves, most often, to complete the makeup and fix it by applying a thin layer to the face with a thick fluffy brush. Colorless transparent powder allows you to remove the oily sheen in the surface of the epidermis and fix the make-up for a long period of time, for example, for a ceremony or photo shoot.
- Mother of pearl base - A kind of highlighter to give the face volume and emphasize the natural beauty of the skin. Powder with flickering particles is not applied to the entire face in order to avoid the effect of oily skin.
- MAC Tint Products can have a creamy or traditional texture and act not only as a fixer for make-up, but also to create the perfect matte skin.
