Breakouts like crazy and too yellow and feels oily
This is worse than any drugstore brand I have ever tried. I breakout like crazy and it clogs all my pores after a few days. I have a fair tone that is cool. They have too much yellow and not enough pink. If you have combination/Oily skin and have to use acne meds, do not get this formula. If you have never had a zit and you have dry skin, it may be fine. I just think mac should rethink their foundation and concealer formula.
This stuff is good compared to everything I try. Only downside is that it flakes after about a month of use. I get asked if I am wearing false lashes because they are so perfect and lush. Seperates, coats evenly, lengthens and thickens. No higher end brand has come close to this one.
Perfect in every way!
I am a bit upset that Chanel discontinued my shade. I had the lightest being #002 Porcelain and it was the most perfect shade ever! The next shade up its #14 Ivory/Ivoire and it's too yellow for my skin. They fitted me with Perfection Lumiere in Beige Rose and it was a combo of #12 and #22. I would have to buy two shades and each costs $56 US. A bottle of Mat Lumiere lasts a long time, estimated 6 months to a year. Of course, if I did buy Perfection Lumiere in both shades I wouldn't have to buy foundation for a solid 1 1/2 to 2 years. If you find your shade in Mat Lumiere that you should stock up and enjoy!!!
Good value for money!
I like this a lot and it cuts out having to buy individual eyeshadows and depot and organize them in a Z-Palette. Great for everyday work looks and you can mix and match. The only downside its that you get a lot of fallout with the ones that have glitter even if you are wearing primer. You get flecks of glitter under the eyes and that looks unkept and you have to reapply concealer in the afternoon.
