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.

I HATE full coverage foundation. For whatever reason it all looks bad on me. I have slightly less texture now, but I don’t feel the need to shellac on my face so I prefer light coverage. This stuff will leave you looking very dewy, so I usually add a powder on top because I get very sweaty easily. Blends nicely, and doesn’t make me break out more than any other foundation I’ve used.

This foundation is one of my top faves! I love how blendable it is, and it doesn't oxidize on my face! It gives my face an amazing dewy finish which I love due to me having somewhat dry-looking skin. The only thing that I don't necessarily like about this foundation is that it doesn't completely dry on it's own. If you touch your face, you can see the foundation on your finger. Setting spray or setting powder does help though. I most definitely love the foundation though.

I use this only on my eye area and I use the prolongwear on the rest of my face. I think this is perfect for under the eyes but too sheer for other blemishes. It smoothes out great under the eyes with a beauty blender, and if quickly set with powder won’t crease. It looks super natural on the skin and it feels like nothing. The packaging makes it super easy to get only as much product as you need, which I love. I’m also on my first bottle and it seems to be lasting a long time. I do recommend this.

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.

This is the best concealer I have used so far! I have been having this issue where under my eyes are super dry so concealer wouldnt blend well and looked really bad. I went into Ulta looking for a hydrating concealer and they tried this out on me. It seriously looks so good and blends in effortlessly. It feels very lightweight but has full coverage! I love it.

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.

I am a long time MAC lover and have tried several of their foundations. Unfortunately I didn’t love this one as much as I wanted to. The formula is very runny, coverage is medium, and the dropper is messy messy messy. This leaked all over my makeup bag on a 20 minute commute with the lid tight. I’m not giving up on MAC yet but this foundation is a no go 🙅

I was not into how this wore at all. It was not good for my sensitive and dry skin. It felt too watery and didn’t have any coverage. Wasn’t a huge fan of the finish either. It’s also so thin you can’t tell if it’s a smooth and even application. It’s hard to use any tool to apply this but your hands and I’m not a huge fan of using my hands on my face.

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?

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?
