really loving this
I have adopted this into my regular rotation. It is so pretty. It's light/medium coverage and that is perfect for me. It blends easily and is creamy feeling but it doesn't make my oily skin more oily. It has a nice glow finish but not overly luminous or greasy looking. When I set it with an HD powder it is really amazing. They work well together. This lasts me about 8 hours with a little fading and shine around my nose and chin where I am oiliest. When it starts to fade it still looks better than A LOT of other foundations I have worn. I really start to wonder why I have been so reluctant to try more high end foundations. This looks very natural and fresh but evens and perfects. I was especially happy that the color is light enough for me without being stark and dead looking. My shade has a yellow base but isn't sallow and livens up my ghostly self. It is slightly darker than my neck but it blends down onto my neck easily so it's not obvious. Definitely will repurchase this.
I have spent the past 3 years searching for the perfect foundation and have literally tried so many products that some way or another just wasn't right for my skin, I decided to try MAC and was given this one to try and I LOVE IT! It gives great coverage, really blends well with your natural tones too, it appears matte but still has shine to it and and smells really nice. It's expensive compared to other foundations but your paying for a good quality product, I only need 1 application on my skin in a day it's lasts well and the bottle itself lasts months! Defiantly a must have I would say :)
Only MAC foundation that works for me!
Usually I have trouble making MAC foundations work for me. They are generally too orange or pink and tend to make me break out. However this formula is perfect!! It matches, blends well, and lasts all day. I highly recommend!!
I love this foundation, it goes on so smooth and doesnt feel cakey on my face like some full coverage foundations, plus it kind of has a nice smell. It really matches the color of my skin, and gives me a nice glowing yet matte finish that last for at least 12 hous. Like all MAC products it is worth the price.
Looks very natural
I initially bought this for a client who was getting married and had been tanning. We picked Shade 4 for her and I loved the way her skin looked afterwards: very dewy and natural. I bought Shades 8 and 8.5 for myself as I am darker/lighter in some areas of my face.
I am a fan of M.A.C. and think they hit the ball out of the park with this foundation, as it is lightweight yet truly build-able for more coverage. It's easy to manipulate and as a dry skinned person, I didn't have any problems with oil control. I used Smashbox Photo Finish Primer underneath and I used M.A.C. Studio Careblend Pressed Powder to set my foundation.
I went to the mac store because i needed a foundation that did not make me feel too cakey! This foundation was perfect! It matches my skin so well, and the best part is... if i get a tad bit darker for whatever reason, IT WILL SOMEHOW MATCH MY SKIN. Its so perfect. It feels so light on my skin. It is medium or less than medium coverage but its perfect! It still conceals great! If your looking for a light foundation, this is it!
My skin has never looked better!
After going through a ton of foundations lately, I walked into MAC and asked for a recommendation. I asked for something long-wearing, medium-full coverage, with a natural finish. She immediately sat me down, picked up shade 1, and applied. I have a very hard time finding foundation that is light enough for my skin, but this is it. When applied correctly, you can't tell I'm wearing make-up.
The formula is a little bit on the dry side, but I'm okay as long as I moisturize and prime first. It allows my freckles to show through ever so slightly, which I think looks natural. It definitely lasts all day--I usually apply at 8am and take it off at 10pm. It's very lightweight and just looks incredible.
