The Best MAC foundation
This by far my favorite foundation. Yes it does feel thick, but when applied with the right foundation brush, it can give you such an airbrushed semi natural look. I loved the fact that this foundation has almost a dewy finish but can still give you medium to full coverage. Most foundations that have that kind of coverage end up looking so cakey and overdone. Most of the artists at M.A.C always recommend Studio Fix, which i don't really understand, I find this foundation easier to work with. They both have around the same coverage. Studio Fix is such a sticky fomula and it dries too fast for me. Also at 30.00 it is cheaper then any other "high" end foundation!
MADE MY FACE BREAK OUT
I used to love using this especially for special events. one day i just decided to wear it and use it just because. and then MY FACE BROKE OUT. It broke out in the areas i used it like around my eyes and my cheeks. it was almost like rosacea but it wasn't it!! It was like a rash ringing around my eyes and cheeks. it sucked. i will never use mac foundation again.. it's way too thick and heavy and i feel like it damaged my skin after that...
The best foundation I have tried
Although I could have went with Nc30 instead of Nc35, I feel like I can still work with it. A little goes a long way with this foundation and I am very impressed with it.
This foundation goes hand in hand with the MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer and I absolutely love the two.
I went into MAC to get a new Studio Fix foundation and the MUA recommended this foundation. She told me that it lasts better and you can even cry without getting streaks down your face. Ha! She was right. First time I cried my makeup actually stayed put! At this moment, i knew this was the foundation for me! : ) The foundation does go on a little sheer (i guess a medium coverage) but if i need to hide a little more I just build the coverage.
At first I was a bit skeptical about using a liquid foundation because I thought it clogged up your pores and gave you cake face, but I gave it a try anyway. This has some of the BEST coverage ever and it lasts hours. Because I only use a little to cover dark spots really, it lasts for months. Overall compared to any other foundation I have used, this is the best so far!!
I was colour matched yesterday to NC20 I had initially gone in to get colour matched for the studio fix fluid but when she was trying to match my face and neck she wasn't coming up with any good colours. So she asked if I would like to try this one and she continued to colour match and she found the perfect one for me<3. I wore it without primer and it still looked flawless. I have an oily tzone and I'm acne prone and besides covering it also does not break me out. My mother bought this for me today because she loved how even when I went to bed with it on ( by accident aha) the next day it was still on my face still flawless looking :). It's definantly the perfect foundation for me because I NEED full coverage. Everything else I've tried has slid off my face,caked up,or given me poor coverage. I don't even need concealer with this! I just prime and put the product on and set with translucent powder and voila perfect skin<3
Excellent coverage - but sometimes feels a little thick. Flawless finish but definitely need to be 100% sure you've got the correct shade or it can look like a mask. Expensive too - but most foundations are these days. This used to be my favourite, but I've tried other brands and now I wouldn't buy this one again. Still the best MAC foundation I've used though!
Winter time foundation
My go to foudation for winter time : ) This was my first foundation from MAC. Since then I always have a back up of this foudation now. It has great coverage and easy to work with. Some people say it breaks them out. Everyone is different and the only way to find that out is get a sample before purchasing the full size. So far out of pro longwear, powder, studio sculpt and moistureblend. The moistureblend broke me out. I recommend getting any sample of any foundation that you want to try out. Everyones is different : ) In the picture I have NC 30 which is the color I am in the middle of winter with NO SUN. I can usually getaway with wearing NC35 all year round if I get a lot of sun.
It was affordable and provided SPF protection. Perfect. It stretched beyond minimum coverage but still managed to look natural when blended accordingly. I will continue to buy this foundation from now on especially since it didn't make me break out like other MAC foundations! woopeeeeee
