What I love about this compact is that it is very very close to my skin color. However, this isn’t great for oily skin. I have combination oily skin (oily in my t-zone). For the first hour, it’s great, but it’ll start cracking & oil will start to seep through. Next thing you know, your whole face is oily & you’ll need to reapply frequently. It’s also pricey. Overall, it’s not one I’d want to spend on for the quality I experienced.

I always always used to use the studio tech. I loved how easy it was to apply you just grab the little puff that it came with and swipe it in the make up and so I put on your face and you're good to go it was like magic in a container. With that said the only reason why I stopped using it is because it started to get wrinkles on my fore head and the make up at settle in my wrinkles.

I love MAC full coverage powder foundation! It’s very full coverage and can look kind of cakey if you don’t set this with a setting spray like M.A.C Cosmetic Prep Plus Prime Fix+ . I really enjoy how this mattifies my skin. I keep this compact ready to go in my bag for emergencies!

This foundation is full coverage and I love it for night outs. I don’t like to wear it every day as it’s too fake looking. I don’t think anyone wears MAC to look too natural so maybe I’m just buying the wrong item. I do love it for night outs.

This is a must foundation. It’s a constant part of my routine that I keep handy in my makeup drawer. I started using it approximately three years ago and always revert back to it after trying other products similar to it. Truly a fantastic product.

Way way way too expensive for the amount you get. Great product but absolute robbery. The packaging makes I.T look like there is way more than there is. I hardly use a lot and lasted a couple weeks MAYBE.

This foundation is great for a quick look, but I'm not one for powder foundations. It seems to accentuate my dry patches after it sets. Otherwise it seems to stay on my skin with minimum touch ups. I would go for their liquid line more.

Love to use this product in various shades around Halloween! Create a flalwless finish, contour, and highlight by using it in corresponding shades. I use NW20 as my base, highlight with W10, and contour with NW40. You can buy this in a WHITE shade which is great for bumping up a highlight, concealing brows, or as a face paint. I always use the white shade to create the teeth for skull makeups.

This is a cult classic for a reason - fantastic coverage and very smoother out look. Doesn’t dry your skin. Has a very fair shade available. Not too pricey for such a great quality. Highly recommend it

I need something to mix into my foundations to lighten them because my very fair skin and I can't decide whether to get the body shop shade adjusting drops for lightening or the Mac white foundation

I had my first (and only) experience with MAC makeup last year -- decided to treat myself to new makeup upon getting stranded in the Denver airport and shopping in the terminal was the best option for keeping my sanity. I was stoked to have stumbled upon what I thought would be my new #1: the pressed mineral foundation had everything I wanted/needed in a base and then some. Unfortunately upon returning to NC, I was crushed to learn there were no MAC retailers in my area. Which leads me to my question: are there any online ordering programs or subscriptions offered either by or for this brand?
