One of my favourite foundations in the world to this day. mac has a wonderful colour selection and i am still able to wear the right shade for my skin. I vary between oily and dry, depending on various factors, aka weather, health, diet and so forth, but i always love a matte finish - and i can always get it with this foundation. The only annoying thing is that the bottle doesn't come with a pump and the matching pump is more than most would cost. But either way, this foundation is well worth it. I have been using it for well couple years now, and even though my skin is very sensitive, it doesn't break me out or anything like that.
I've been using this foundation for a couple years now and it is my go to. I first went to Mac because I have a very fair complexion and at the time their shade range fit me best. I would consider it to be medium coverage but very easy to build onto. When it is set with a powder and spray it lasts all day and continues to cover everything. Only thing i dislike is that it comes with a screw off top and you have to purchase a pump separately from Mac.

I was not pleased with this Mac product. This was my first real foundation purchase that was not from target. I was so excited to use this foundation when I purchased it and I did use it for quite some time. I recently purchased a new foundation that made me realize how much this foundation was not the right one for me. This foundation I thought was rather orange on my face and made me break out quite a bit. For someone with sensitive skin, this may not be the foundation for you. I also felt as though this foundation made my face oily and that the makeup would separate on any oily patches of my face and peel away at my skin on the dry patches of my face. The coverage of the foundation was very well, nearly a full coverage foundation, which was pleasing. The design of the packaging was good and if you purchase a pump the amount will last quite a long time.

When i first started using makeup i went to lancome the makeup there was great for my face just a little pricey. Then i would just buy drug store makeup which always made my face look pinkish and my undertones are already pink. I started using mac powder (they always gave me darker tones) with drugstore foundation. In november of 2014 i went to sephora for a color match they had me try out tarte amazonian clay which i totally disliked the feeling PLUS it was dark and orangish. I went back without any makeup since the last time i removed it there and my face tends to get red right away so that couldve distorted the match. This time the girl had me try one from marc jacobs which felt silky but was still too dark and orange for me. I finally decided to try mac's foundation and ask for a different powder and im satisfied with this foundation its finally light enough and matches my skin tone. I love how soft my face looks and feels.

I really love alot of things about this foundation. For one, it truly provides a natural finish. It's not matte but it's not dewy. It's very natural and gorgeous. As for the packaging, I really love the pump it has on the top and also the ability to "lock"the pump in case you are traveling and don't want the product to get everywhere. I usually end up using about a pump and a half for my entire face. The coverage is buildable, which is another thing I love. The consistency is not extremely thick but not super thin and watery either. I like to pump the foundation onto the back of my hand and dot it all over my face. Then I blend it out with either a flat top kabuki brush (like sigma F80) or a brush like morphe m 439. A beauty blender works great as well. I find that you do have to work quickly though when applying this product because it dries pretty fast. It doesn't oxidize on my skin either which is another reason I love this foundation. Not the cheapest, but not the most expensive either. It lasts me most of the day, but I have found other foundations that last longer. Overall, a really good foundation.

Let me start with this, if you hire a makeup artist to do a wedding, chances are you they will be using this. This foundation is so good that it is a safe go to on everyone’s skin type. As if that doesn’t speak for itself enough, I wore this for my own sister’s wedding and was receiving compliments all night. This is a hydrating foundation, it is not matifying and not overly dewy, so it is the perfect right in between that most people’s skin is craving. The product goes on so smoothly over your skin and doesn’t crease or settle into pores accentuating them. It smooths and blurs imperfection and blends well at the same time. I definitely would recommend this to anyone!

Mac holds true to their name the pro long where it doesn’t last all day I love the fact that it lasts all day but it does look a little too thick or to Kiki for my liking I like a buildable more subtle full coverage if that makes sense LOL I don’t like Dewey I like it to look Matt I don’t wanna look like I just sweat all over myself, And of course I just personal opinion and but it does last a long time it’s worth the money and I don’t know if a lot of people knew but if you take it I believe it’s six empty containers a Mac you get a free eyeshadow a free lipstick or lip gloss thank you Mac for being so awesome for so long

If I had to choose my favorite full coverage foundation it would be this one!! It works SO well on my oily skin and always leaves a matte finish that lasts forever. I always have at least one bottle of this on hand for whenever I want a full face look and it photographs so beautifully that your skin will look flawless even if it isn’t. MAC is also underrated in my opinion as it’s a great value compared to similar brands out there so you don’t have to totally break the bank if you want quality higher than drugstore products.

If you’re looking for a full coverage finish foundation, this is it. I’m just going to prepare you of how it’s going to feel like taking it off. It’s going to look like you’re wiping paint from your face because of how heavy and full coverage it is. Just like the concealer, this covers up a lot even if you’re skin is flawless. This is not my everyday foundation. However, I would highly recommend it for bridal events because of the longevity, heavy duty, full coverage formula.

I hate to be the odd one out here but so many people love this foundation that I said “why not give it a try?” I have brown skin with a warm undertone and when I applied this foundation it was really nice and easy to blend but the major issue was that after two hours it started to melt off and get really orange. The coverage was medium for me and The only reason why I figured that this foundation was so melty and orange on my skin was because my skin is very oily. Anyway even though it didn’t work for my skin it might work for yours.

First, let me say how horrified I was at the nastiness of the Mac employees by my house! They were downright rude when I went in there. They not only have me the wrong shade the first time I went in there, but then gave me an attitude when I needed to exchange it for the right shade! All that aside, this was an OK foundation. I used to love it, sadly, it seems like the formula changed because my skin hated it and it didn’t dry down well. I would t recommend
