Stay away if you have sensitive skin!

The title says if all...I tried this on at a MAC counter at Macy's and I instantly regretted it. It made my face look cakey and not natural even though I asked for a natural kind of look from the MUA helping me. Minutes after it was on I noticed it made my face super dry by slimey at the same time. I had a few spots where I started peeling already! And then the next day I woke up with a bad allergic reaction, bumps all over my face. I do. It recommend for anyone with sensitive skin of even regular!

My Everyday Foundation

I bought this foundation in the winter cause my MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Naturale broke && got water damaged. I asked the MAC counter associate what foundation would be best for an everyday foundation, one where i wouldnt look too over done. She introduced me to this new foundation which was the Matchmaster Foundation. She used only one pupmp of foundation on my whole face and it covered up my redness and acne scars up pretty well. I purchased it and have been using it ever since. It is now summer and i am a bit too dark for it. But once winter comes i am definitely going right back to it. It lasts me about 8 hours. And i rarely have to touch it up, unless i am having an oily day. i dont recomend this foundation for oily skin unless you have a really good setting powder && have time to touch up thru out the day. Over all i rate this a 4 and a half star foundation. :)

Mac Claims:
A virtually "invisible" foundation with coverage influenced by your own skin tone. A breakthrough patented formula technology with a spectrum of 14 light to deep dark shades. Discover shade intelligence!

When I first heard that M.A.C was going to release a new foundation that was suppose to blend into your skins undertone. I was totally hyped up and ready. I've had trouble with finding a dot on foundation that was just perfect for me. I have a weird undertone, for some products I am a NC for others an NW. For Studio Fix I am a C4, Face & Body C3, Pressed Powder NC35, Pro Longware Foundaton NW25. I can typically get away with either one, I just have to be careful with it.

When I saw news of a new M.A.C Foundation that was suppose to blend and adapt to your natural skin tone, I was super excited. Not only was this foundation suppose to be a true matched tone but also virtually invisible.

I ran to the store when I heard this new foundation had just hit stores. I was matched to be a shade 4 and this shade was PERFECT. It not only blended into my skin, but you couldn't tell I was wearing foundation. I still had that polished look, but you couldn't tell I was wearing foundation. My skin tone just looked amazing and polished. I purchase the bottle and was super excited because I felt this foundation was going to be my holy grail.

I tried applying this foundation in many forms and I felt that using my Sonia Kashuk Highlighting Brush is the best way to apply this foundation. I am not a fan of regular foundation brushes, I feel they leave me streaky and I end up applying more foundation than what I actually need. The foundation does dry fast, so you need to work fast with it.

This foundation stayed on my skin since 8am till roughly 8pm. Although it's not labeled as a long wearing foundation like Pro Longware, this foundation stayed on. I did get oily, but to me that is normal since I have very oily skin. It didn't make me more oily than usual, but it also didn't make me less. It was just a normal oily for me. Nothing crazy. It has a demi matte finish to it, which to me looks super natural. For better oil control I set it with M.A.C's Translucent Powder.

The coverage this foundation gives is a low medium, that that is very buildable. I would say the coverage would be alittle less than Pro Longware, but without that "I'm wearing foundation look."Since I'm a guy, one layer of this works perfectly for me. If I wanted go to up on coverage a little but more, I could. Which is something else that I love about this foundation.

With all this said, I would recommend this foundation to others. I actually have recommended this to both of my sisters. They love it.

Pros:
Natural
Stays On
Adapts to Skin tone
Buildable

Cons:
Dries Fast

Really Nice finish :)

This foundation is really nice it goes on smooth (with using a primer) and it isn't heavy. I set it with mineral powder just to make it look a little better. I don't really care for mac face products such as foundations but this one is really nice and would recommend it to anyone, any skin type.. I have oily skin at the end of the day but it was nice. It wasn't ugly like other foundations would make it. Give it a try and if you don't like it you could exchange or return it :)

I agree with you about their face products, I was a MAC hater until I got Matchmaster and the skin finish powder totally worth the money spent! And it wasn't that much more than drug store foundation, those prices seem to get higher and higher now!
