I love a full coverage foundation, don’t get me wrong, but this is just almost too full coverage. It gives you a mask like appears and it does oxidize. On top of that this is an extremely thick cream foundation and the only way I was able to apply it and have it look decent was with a brush. When applying with a sponge you waste too much product and time. The plus side is you only need this and nothing else. No concealer and no corrector. This did break down on me after I had it set and made my skin extremely oily and shiny. No other foundation had made my skin look this oily and shiny like this one has.

I use to love cream foundations because I loved how it looked on the skin but after years of constantly using them, I felt like they clogged my pores, dried my skin out (I have dry skin too), broke up on the skin, and looked cakey. Now and days I barely use cream foundations or at all.

When I do, I tend to grab this foundation because it has full coverage without it looking cakey (I suggest using a wet sponge or a light hand with a fluffy or dense foundation brush) because it covers all my imperfections that I want to hide and lasts all day long. I make sure to use a light hand to set the cream and also use a setting spray to melt the products in together to give it a natural look and put together. This foundation is very similar or basically the same as MAC Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35 but in a larger size and without SPF (if you want to save some $$).

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.

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.

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.

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 spent a lit of money on this. Didnt realize it was irange until i brought it home. I know mac is very yellow and oranfe tones but i didnt know that when i purchased it. I tried it many different ways but it always wiped off or transdered from my face to my hands if i rubbed my face even a little. Not my favorite.

This stuff is like flawless skin in a compact! I have combination skin and the second I put it on VS 6+ hours later it still looks the same. It’s very lightweight and beautiful! I recommend this and I’ll always depend on this for days I need some good coverage, that’ll last all day!

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?
