I don't care for the applicator that comes with the compact, so I just use a face brush to apply this foundation. I don't like to pile on tons of face makeup, so what I like about this foundation is that I can just apply it with a dampened brush and I get great coverage. I also use it to fix any mistakes when I do my brows or to conceal the color of my lips.
I'm honestly pretty disappointed. I was searching high and low for a perfect everyday powder and everyone kept telling me to get this. It's a hit and a miss, the colour is a little yellow and sometimes it dries weird and makes me look cakey, other times it looks pretty good. I wouldn't buy this product again.
I used this foundation for about 5 years, I have very very oily italian skin. The color always seemed to be a little off, I would switch between this and C3 in the cooler months. My skin always stayed super oily and oxidation with the color was always a big problem as well. I had a lot more break outs as well. With MAC I love some of there products but this one missed my mark xxoo
I can say GREAT COVERAGE! I don't use this daily, I actually rarely use it. I like to have it in my makeup box; just in case I need my makeup to last all night long. I only wear this powder for special occassions because it does have great coverage. However, i don't like it as an everyday use because it is too heavy for your skin and I like to allow my skin to breathe. I used this on Halloween and it looked great all night, I also use it when I go to weddings, special events or parties. I really like the coverage but I noticed when I leave it on all night, I will get a pimple the next day.
This powder is my absolute favourite thing in the world. It is really nice to set any primer/moisturizer/foundation etc. It has really great coverage and leaves you with a soft airbrush finish! I love this product more than anything. The only reason why it didn't get a full 5 stars is because the more you apply it the more visible it is that you are wearing powder. So you have to be careful to not put too much on! Other than that I would recommend not using it with a full coverage foundation because then it looks really cakey (the powder itself if full coverage) So it provides more than enough. But overall love this powder I couldn't live without it.
Great, light powder!
I use this product a lot to create contouring and definition, its a light weight product that doesn't give you a dry or cakey look. It's perfect to create that show or illusion of a contoured nose, or cheekbones. It's also great for over-all coverage to set foundation :)
This powder is foolproof. I never leave my house without it. It's a 2 in 1 product but I mainly use a little to set my foundation and concealer with. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the sponge that comes with it underneath. But that's a minor pet peeve of mine lol.
I've been used to using liquid foundations now for a really long time, and haven't used this powder since I'm gonna say high school lol. Anyway, I recently made the decision to stop using liquid foundations, due to having issues with acne. Since I made the switch from liquid foundations to powder, my skin is clearing up, the acne that I do currently have doesn't look angry and red anymore. I get amazing coverage that lasts all day, it's easy to touch up with this, and I really so far can't find any reason to complain about it. My skin is combination, and irritates pretty easily. So far no issues, less acne, longer lasting for me then liquid foundations ever were. LOVE IT!
