I got this because I needed a foundation that would cover up my acne. So yes, it covered up my acne and yes it has heavy coverage BUT it broke me out even more! So will I be purchasing it again?? No. It's too expensive and breaks me out like no other. I'll probably just keep it and use it for special occasions and dance performances.
While it promises full coverage, I find that this foundation has too much of a yellow undertone for me. I mix this foundation with my Revlon PhotoReady (which is too pink for me) and it gives me the perfect shade and the coverage that I am looking for. I will consider repurchasing because of its staying power.
MAC has great foundations but this one was a miss for me. I loved it when I first got it but then i noticed it was WAY to dark for me.. and the SMELL... i can't get over the smell. it's a paint smell that stays around throughout the day. Also it's a bit heavy. I got mine during the summer of last year and I have to say I now regret buying it..
Matches my yellow undertones.
After I apply this to my face, I don't feel like I am wearing anything which is good. If you have dark scaring from acne this may not provide enough coverage for you. My favourite thing about this product is how closely it matches my skintone. I have a noticeably yellow complexion and most people cannot tell when I have this makeup on my face as it blends so well. Isn't that awesome?
although a looooot of people have tried to make me change my mind about this foundation, i WILL ALWAYS GO BACK TO IT. it is my favorite, love the coverage, makes me look absolutely flawless.....
it is the one MAC product i will always buy
For A 5 Minute Use.
I tried this foundation because I saw everyone use it . I was expecting really good things, because I saw how wonderful it looked on the runway and in photos. I didn't realize that though it looks great for a few minutes, it actually isn't the best thing for every day.
The foundation is really thick and cakey. It also doesn't match my skin perfectly. It's a bit too yellow or too red for my skin. It also really broke me out. After some time wearing it, tiny bumps appeared on my skin and made it look really bad.
I really like it in photos and for a few minutes, but other than that it broke me out really bad. I stay away from MAC foundations in general these days.
I know I have a feeling I am going to get a lot of hate for this but I am not a fan of this product at all. I was so excited that I was able to get matched up and purchase this product. I had it on for no more than a day and its tore my skin up like there was no way to describe it. I went from normal/dry spots to my skin breaking out all over and becoming really oily. I take really good care of my skin washing it twice a day making sure my face stays clean even than using this foundation made my skin so bad I had to return. I was so sad to not be able to enjoy it since it is loved by everyone
Is it heavy? Yes, will acne-prone skinned gals break out? Most likely. Is it sweat resistant? Nope. Does it create a flawless, beautiful face? ABSOLUTELY. While it's not the best when it comes to how light is it, or whether it's oily skin resistant, it does create a pretty look on the face.
Oily skin girls should use this during the winter so it's last longer & to fully appreciate the look of this without it melting off.
