Review for: M A C1 more...
I purchased one of these products a few years ago. I tend to use concealer over a full foundation look. I don’t have anything against foundation but I don’t want to jump into that field yet. I went to the MAC counter at my local Macy’s and got a makeover from one of the ladies there. She used this C1 body and face foundation to cover my face. She showed me how to apply it and where to apply it. I then purchased one to use at home. I like the product itself but find a few flaws. The foundation is very dewy and wet like to the touch; It doesn’t fully dry when applied. Also the product appears very orange, now this could be due to the wrong shade. I am be no means an expert on foundation but I hardly use this product due to these flaws.

I wear this foundation every single day. I have the driest skin on the planet and this is the only foundation I have found that looks completely natural on me. It has very light coverage but it is super buildable, and doesn't cling to any dry patches. I usually just do one layer and then use a tiny concealer brush for any spots I might have and I seriously always get compliments on my skin when I use this because it just makes you look like you have naturally beautiful skin. It is very dewy even on my dry skin so in the summer I do have to set it more completely than I do normally but I would so much rather have super dewy skin than too look even a little dry so its okay with me!

I have found my holy grail foundation in this product. I use shade C2 and apply with my fingers. The lightweight light to medium coverage is easily buildable. It's perfect for everyday wear and smooths beautifully over my dry skin. The finish is very natural and remains in tact all day. Never breaks down and doesn't sink into any lines. The smell is nice, but not strong. Cream and powder products blend over it beautifully. I can't say enough good things about this. It's survives 90 degree head and humidity and 20 degree cold and dry climates. The price is wonderful and I love the packaging.

This is my holy grail foundation. I can't even begin to describe how this looks on my skin. It is such a gorgeous finish. It is dewy and can be build up to a light medium coverage. I either use my hands (when I am late), a duo fiber brush or a beauty blender to apply it. It is the foundation I am wearing in my picture. For my cousin's wedding, we got our makeup done at MAC and I had the lady apply this foundation to my face for it and it lasted all night! You really can't go wrong with this foundation.

I used to use this product for many many years and I loved it! It’s a water based foundation which was different and it’s very cool. For the best outcome you rub it between your hands and let it dry for a few seconds. Then you press and rub it on your face like you’re putting a mask on. It lasts all day long and looks amazing. I just switched because I wanted something with a little more coverage and I like that the one I use now has SPF in it but I still love this product and use it on occasion!

This is my favorite foundation. It lets me look completely flawless but slightly Dewey though I can powder it. I go through a couple bottles of this year and always I’m trying something else but come back to face and body. It never lets me down and never transfers and anything it lasts all day. I’ve heard that it’s really nice mixed with Mac pro long where concealer as well and plan to try that soon. I put this on my friends and they are always impressed with how great it is too.

My holy grail foundation. I the packaging makes it easy to drop out the right amount in the shades I buy to customize my foundation. This works well with the Beautyblender applicator as well as a synthetic foundation brush. It makes my skin look flawless when I go for a full coverage amount when I have my skin flare ups. When my skin is on point I can use a few less drops for a lighter coverage and my skin will still look flawless. ANYTHING from MAC is my go to.

This is not, and doesn't claim to be, full coverage. It is super sheer with a satin/healthy skin finish. I barely reach for this foundation except for the summer maybe. I'll use this in the summer when I want a light weight foundation to just look fresh and like I don't have makeup on. 

Would I buy this again? No, because only using it a few times a year is not worth it. But if you love light foundations - this is for you!

i have the shade c7. i love this water based foundation because it is the closest that i own of an exact match. i don’t like to do a lot of magic with mixing and all that. MAC claims that this is a long wearing, sating finish. and that is very true. i never have any transfer from this foundation. i always matte my foundation finishes with powder. one or two days from spring/ summer i will let it work it’s natural finish. she’s sheer. this is not a foundation for coverage. this has a fresh, baby doll kind of finish. after 8 or 9 hrs is when i can feel it on my face.

This stuff is amazing I usually get mine in the larger size but my skin became a bit deeper so now I have to buy a smaller size because they have more colors.
This probably won't be great for oil skin tbh but it gives such a great finish, you have to apply with your hands for best results and I buy this all the time!

I'm always worried about using a liquid foundation because of the weight and feeling of it on my face. Is this one light or does it feel like it clogs your pores and smothers your face? Looking for a new foundation with light coverage. Thanks!
