MSF said it had filed a "pre-grant opposition," a filing through which patents can be opposed in India before they are granted.Pfizer first applied for a patent on the vaccine in 2007, according to the Indian patent office's website.
Both MAC Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural that MUA used on me gave me exactly the look that I always wanted. I am NC 35/40 in MAC foundations, so they gave me the shade Medium Dark. It’s available in 8 shades – Light, Light Medium, Medium, Medium Plus, Medium deep, Medium Dark, Dark, and Deep Dark. The other day MAC MUA used Medium Plus on me and it also went well for my skin.
:-/ So definitely try the powder at the store before purchasing. During the super hot months of April -May, it even made my T Zone oily after a few hours.
MAC Mineralize skin finish natural is a baked mineral powder. I have used quite a lot of it so you see the flat top of the product. The same day I purchased it, I came back home and I applied it on my face- I could see nothing. I mean I came from the school of thought where powders should “show” on the face and give the satisfaction that I have applied something. I mean for some reason I never hated it but it was not something that I fell in love with. I have a dry skin otherwise but this is the only powder that was making my face shiny so I stopped using it during these hot months.
A luxurious domed face powder with minerals, slowly baked to provide a dimensional yet natural-matte finish. Use to set and fix foundation or as a touch-up throughout the day.
Honestly, when I bought it I had no clue why I was purchasing it.
I was pissed with Lakme’s base makeup and the MAC makeup artist did such an excellent job on giving the most natural look to my skin that I picked MSF up in a jiffy.
It was expensive for a compact but then I couldn’t go on looking like a white cakey ghost for the rest of my life.
MUMBAI, March 11 (Reuters) - The charity Medicins Sans Frontieres has formally opposed U. firm Pfizer Inc's application for an Indian patent on a highly effective pneumonia vaccine, saying it could deprive many developing nations of cheaper copies of the drug.
Some of the world's poorest countries and medical charities such as Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) depend on India's robust pharmaceutical industry to make cheaper forms of drugs and vaccines developed by big Western pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer."To make sure children everywhere can be protected from deadly pneumonia, other companies need to enter the market to supply this vaccine for a much lower price than what Pfizer charges," Manica Balasegaram, executive director of MSF's access campaign, said in a statement on Friday.
