I love the matte finish on this. It keeps oil in place and looks good with the prep and prime on top. I use a thin layer of this on normal days because it makes my skin look a bit better than using a BB cream. I'm a singer in a choir, so for shows I use a good amount of this. It helps the skin look less washed out and more perfected with the horrible stage lights our director makes us perform under. I try not to wear it everyday though, because it is silicone based and can I want my skin to breathe a bit.
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.
Good coverage too heavy feeling
I used to use this a couple years ago when I first got it I liked it. As I grew older I noticed it was too heavy on my skin. I do like that the coverage is buildable and it is easy to blend. It sometimes can be streaky with certain brushes. The color was a good match for me but it was a little light since when I was wearing it I was wanting a gothic kind of look back then. I think I would have no gone up to a NC 30.
