I had given up on MAC foundations a while ago – not bc they
are bad, b tbc as I’ve gotten older I find they do not suite my dry and
textured skin. Enter this foundation!

I am a huge fan of this foundation. Its light as a feather
and feels like second skin, yet it still does have some good coverage. This has
more coverage than I expected it to – you could say more than a BB or CC but less
than Nars Sheerglow. I LOVE the dewy-ness I get wearing this, and my skin just
looks so much healthier than with other heavier foundations. The color stays
true and doesn’t oxidize at all, and I get no streaking or fading. I also feel
as if I am getting a boost of hydration, and the additional SPF is great.

AMAZING. Lightweight, great coverage but also very buildable. Doesn’t crease when set with even a light powder. Keeps your skin hydrated. Great for warmer weather when you want a light, natural looking foundation.

Review for: NW20 more...
This was my first ever foundation at 28 years old. I have tried others but still find myself going back to it. It has light/ medium coverage and it covers the red spots in my face enough that it evens out my face. The color is perfect for me and with setting powder it makes my skin look great. A little goes a long way and I’ve had it for almost a year and still have quite a bit. I don’t wear it everyday but I’ve never had an adverse reaction with my sensitive skin if I do wear it multiple days in a row. I also find that it wears fine and does good with a primer on my incredibly dry skin.

This foundation is “ok”. I have oily skin to start out with so the water base doesn’t really help. I have to set it with a ton of powder. But when I do it is a good foundation that I can wear for a while.

Mac has the best foundation for darker toned people. This foundation has a gorgeous dewy finish. It has a water liquidy consistency. It comes with a dropper as an applicator. Light to medium coverage, so it’s perfect for everyday wear. I have dry skin, but this foundation adds so much moisture. The only con is that it has a little bit of a pink undertone, it’s not bad though. It’s nothing unbearable though. Overall this is great purchase and suggest it to everyone

My old roommate was a make up artist for MAC Cosmetics. I had told her I was looking for a new foundation after my skin changed from menopause. My skin was extra dry and I needed something lightweight. She brought this home for me and I actually really liked it. It was light and my skin didn’t look dry by the end of the day. It was also very affordable compared to other high end foundations.

For the first time in a while, I actually finished off an entire bottle of foundation! This is great for dry skin. It is a thin liquid formula that blends out like a dream. I prefer to apply it with a beauty blender but keep in mind you’ll get a fuller coverage look with a dense foundation brush when using this. If you’re looking for a hydrating light - medium coverage foundation this is the one for you! One bottle lasted me an entire year.

Review for: NW15 more...
This is one of my favorite foundations for super natural days or my minimal makeup days. It really just looks like skin and I can still see my freckles through which I like. That being said it's a very light coverage so some people may not enjoy that. The only thing is I wish it came with a pump instead of a dropper because I find that it can get quite messy at times.

This light weight foundation is part of my daily routine. As a mom of 2 I need products that blend quickly and effortlessly. Since working for dermatology I always look for products that are light weight and do not clog my pores. With buildable coverage I can go from day to evening in a flash. I love using my foundation brush or beauty blender when applying.

Is this product worth the money? I mean do you really get good coverage for the price or are you just paying for the brand?

I've been looking for a foundation but I'm having a hard time finding my color and my skin is very oily and acne prone. I heard Mac helps you match is it actually true and do they do a good job at it and is this one good for me and my type of skin?
