Not a fan, I have pale skin and the lightest color gives me a yellow undertone. The coverage is poor as well.

Not a massive fan of this product to be honest, mac foundations/powders tend to break out my skin and it definitely feels as though I am wearing makeup through out the day. They do not feel light weight at all on my skin and I feel as though the colour range for pale skin isn't very good.

This product is horrible on my skin. And it wears off really fast and it's hard to apply to my skin without trouble. I've only used it once and it will be the only time. It's also not with your money.

I don't know what is in these MAC foundations that always breaks me out. People rave about MAC foundations but I'm not a fan just because they don't suit my skin (I've oily and sensitive skin) otherwise these foundations works like dream.

Ugh this stuff was disgusting!! I wanted to try this because it says online that it's a full coverage foundation so I was immediately drawn to it. I have a lot of acne to cover. When I first opened this product it seemed very stiff and hard. After swirling a brush in and not getting much product, I switched to a beauty blender which started to tear away at it. ūüė© finally I was able to get some into my face. The coverage was decent but the finish was so gross. It left a slick and oily feeling to my dry skin. I thought maybe as the day went on that it would kind of melt into my skin but it just broke up and looked terrible. I'm going to return this product after trying with different moisturizers and primers. Totally disappointed! I'll be sticking to my studio fix fluid instead.

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?
