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.

Ok so I always felt that Mac would be heavy and Cakey looking but boy was I wrong. I have combo leaning more towards oily skin and this lasted all day with no transfer while feeling weightless. It actually took me trying a new foundation for the day then looking in mirror in horror while in car and driving to mall to buy a foundation so I didn’t look like a hot mess. I headed straight to Mac counter and tried bought this. For the first time ever my fiancé actually complimented me on my makeup which is huge!!! Color matching was a little hard as all MUAs were busy but best thing is the price. It so well priced for what is is and how well it works! Perfect match to pro longwear concealer!!! Would def recommend!

I used to use MAC studio fix and as I got older (aka began to get laugh lines), I found that too heavy. This foundation is like it's lighter sibling.

Pro:
Goes on medium coverage and is buildable to dull coverage.
The way the bottle is formed makes it great for travel.
Looks more on the natural side, even when built up.
Doesn't settle into pores or lines if face is properly primed.

Con:
Takes a long time to dry down. Doesn't dry down completely and needs to be set with powder.
Although I like the pump feature, it does tend to give more product than i need. And since there's no way to put it back in the bottle, I find it slightly wasteful.

I do like this foundation, but because I have oily skin I won’t be buying it again. I wanted to like this foundation more, but it doesn’t last that long for me. By lunchtime, I’m having to blot and retouch my makeup. I only wear this foundation if I know I’m only going to be wearing it for a couple of hours. If you have dry or normal skin, this may work for you. I recommend buying a pump to go with it though. You can waste a lot of product if you don’t have a pump.

This foundation is the BEST! This was my first more expensive foundation and I fell in love. Since then, I've tried about 3 other kinds of foundation and I always want to return to this. This is a great every day foundation and I use it with the studio fix powder on top. It does not look cakey or anything, several people have told me that my skin looks glowing. I don't have dry skin, just some acne and this sits very well with my skin.

My skin is oily and doesn’t hold makeup well so I’ve tried all brands and types of foundations. This is the only one that stays put all day and leaves my face shine free from work through dinner. It’s very buildable and natural looking, especially if you use a beautyblender original makeup sponge. I will caution that it does break me out so I try not to use it every day, but the pros far outweigh the cons.

As a person who's always on a hunt for newness and looking for full coverage products within other brands. I must say nothing compares to pro longwear. Been using it for many years and there is not enough words to explain how much I love this foundation. It says what it does, full coverage, definitely long lasting as it stays put for a full day (12+ work hours) which Is amazing for someone who has oily skin. (I only have to blot or touch-up once a day but that's usually only during hot summer days) and has a beautiful matte finish. Will forever have this in my makeup bag and recommend for others to try.

I've tried some foundation from other brands an this is by far the best foundation i've had .i just love how Mac has a super wide range of colors to fulfill every necessity. I have sensitive skin so if i spend several hours with makeup on (like 8 hours for a example) it tends to break me out an this foundation dose not.it feels very light on skin and blends beautifully and also helps if you have oily skin love this foundation alot i would really recommend this to anyone !!!!

One of my favorite foundations! Stays on all day, covers GREAT, AND NOT TOO HEAVY looking.  People comment the most on my skin when I am wearing MAC foundation. Highly recommend and have bought many many times. Worth the money to have an awesome foundation. Foundation is one thing I can't skimp on because of my uneven and red skin. The concealer is JUST as awesome.
