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.

VERY full coverage foundation as advertised. I give it three stars because this product made my skin break out. I usually never have a reaction with any makeup or skincare but somehow MAC foundations always seem to make me break out. Great foundation for those with anything they want to cover though!

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.

Love using this powder foundation for everyday use because it’s not as heavy as a actual foundation. It’s easy to apply and very easy to work with. It last all day when you set it with a powder. I would recommend .

I love this full coverage. I have a lot of blemishes, scars, and freckles. I tend to lean towards more coverage when it comes to foundation. This was amazing. Not oily and blended well. Comes in a variety of colors

The product is good. I really love this makeup brand to the point I barely use it when I go somewhere that’s not important. Lol. It’s an expensive brand but does the job, I highly recommend the brand to others.

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.

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?
