This foundation is great . It offers medium coverage, it's very light on the face and gives you a silk finish and glow. For me it works better during summer,but I use it on winter sometimes along with other foundations when I want fuller coverage.


Lipstick -MAC -Lustre in Syrup

Very pretty sheer bright cool mauvey pink. Major complaints are it doesn't last, bleeds our of lip line and feels like a tinted balm. I love mac lipsticks, but so dislike the lustre finish. Same complaint with mac capricious lustre. Stick with mac satins, creme sheers, frosts and amplified for long wear and color pay off.


Liquid -MAC -Next to Nothing Face Colour

A tinted moisturizer sort of like Neutrogena's Hydroboost but lighter in weight and better colors. I bought light plus for my NC 20 skin tone and it was perfect. It just gives skin a slightly better look. It does pill a little on my chin and tends to fade by the 5 hour mark but since it's so sheer who can tell? It is definitely like wearing nothing so if that's your thing this is for you. I like the FEEL of nothing but need a little bit more coverage so I want that unicorn of foundations.

IT CC cream, EL Doublewear light, Chanel perfection lumiere, and Clinique CC cream are still my favorites.

I took a while to come to an opinion regarding this foundation. But, after going through three bottles and many seasons, I have never ever been let down by this. While, this is not my HG, I will ALWAYS have Face&Body on hand regardless of what other foundation I am using.

The PROS:
1. Very forgiving foundation: dry, flakey skin? No matter, this foundation will give even finish. Oily oily hot summer skin? Just powder this baby, and it will not melt off, not be greasy yet wont dehydrate you. Dry mature skin? This foundation will not emphasise fine lines/pores what so ever!
In my experience, even the most expensive foundations can have an occasional bad day. But, this humble baby always always has my back <3
2. Looks like SKIN! Legit. Just slightly more even, slightly better, realistic looking glow and still your own skin. This is important for me. In about 10 years time I won't have my youthful skin anymore, so I hate plastering it with full coverage gunk. Even the high end luxury foundations I have used don't look as skin-like in person as this one does.
I just use concealer where I need help, but using medium/full coverage all over does not look as fresh.
3. Lasts, doesn't make me greasy (and I have a VERY OILY T-ZONE), looks fresh for hours!
4. The plastic bottle is SO EASY to travel with - no more worrying that my glass bottle with break!
5. C6 is a really good match for my summer skin - but again because this is sheer coverage, even slightly off undertone/match is VERY FORGIVING. No more buying 2 foundations, mixing to get my shade - less waste of money.
6. ABSOLUTE VALUE FOR THE PRICE!

Cons:
None really. This is not HG because I am sheep and in search for something that makes me look like those instagram girls lol. Or, the real reason, I haven't given up searching for something that would give me higher coverage (for those special occasions) but still gives me the same finish this foundation (aka looks like skin).

Eye Shadow -MAC -Paint Pot in Painterly

on 12/6/2017 9:53:00 PM

I used to like this before I knew much about primers. It kind of works, but it's not long lasting enough on me. It's good value since the product will last a long time, but what's the point when it doesn't work all that well? As a shadow base, it's great. But I wouldn't recommend it as a primer. I get a fair amount of creasing if I use this as a primer. Instead, I would recommend Urban Decay for an eyeshadow primer. Even on nights when I fall asleep without washing off my makeup (it's not that often, but happens) my eye makeup still looks flawless in the morning thanks to Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Highlighters -MAC -Prep + Prime Highlighter Pen in Light Boost

I like this shade of the highlighter pens as well as the radiant rose. I just use this under my eyes and set with powder. Its super easy to blend so I don't spend that much time on my makeup in the morning.

Love this highlighting pen for under the eyes. Its so easy to blend and gives you a fresh, ready to go look quickly. I usually blend this out with a beauty blender and set with a powder.


Lips -MAC -Lip Erase - Pale

Like another reviewer posted, I too like a nude lip and before buying this product I used concealer to "blur" my natural lip shade. In the winter I use more of an NC20 concealer and find that the shade PALE is absolutely perfect for what I need. Last week I noticed that some mascara had fallen and I didn't have Any concealer so I used a pat of this product under my eye and no one knew the difference...I don't recommend substituting for a concealer but just saying you could if you had to...

Tinted Moisturizer -MAC -Lightful C Tinted Cream SPF 30 with Radiance Booster

on 12/6/2017 2:49:00 PM

I really love this product but I don't see it on the website anymore I really hope it's not discontinued!

This is definitely a mixture of the better aspects of a tinted moisturizer and cc cream which is probably why it's the "Lightful c tinted cream"

It has a thick almost mousse like texture but despite the texture it's very lightweight and doesn't feel heavy.

The shades lean more warm due to the "CC cream" aspect which seems like it would be too orange but it can actually help make your face look brighter and more fresh looking whereas those that are more neutral (like most tinted moisturizers) can make yellow toned or pink toned people look quite gray due to being too neutral whereas this looks more glowy.

I'd say this gives pretty good coverage, about almost medium coverage. I have some hyperpigmentation and it covered it BUT I apply it by stippling it on with a flat top buffing brush and that's how it gives it great coverage. I find the slight peach tone really helps counteract any dark spots or areas which makes sense since its part of the "Lightful" range which is meant to help these issues. I like that it actually has vitamin c quite high on the list too.
I wouldn't use this with your fingers or a sponge unless you want sheer coverage.
I feel like the coverage(when stippled with a flat top) is as good if not better than the it cosmetics CC cream.

Another reason why I LOVE this is because it works AMAZING for my oily skin. I've never found a tinted moisturizer or CC cream that keeps my oils at bay while simultaneously giving me a slight glow that doesn't look greasy, it a miracle product, I kid you not.
I noticed that it withstands long days, heat, etc unlike any tinted product or most foundations. This is a highly underrated product

Highlighters -MAC -Prep + Prime Highlighter Pen (Radiant Rose)

This just wasn't the product for me. I can though imagine it being a nice procuct for a lot of other people- It has a nice applicator, blends out really well and i've seen it on other people giving a nice natural highlight.
Now this isn't a concealer, it's a highlighter, but I'd read online about it being quite nice in brightening up undereye circle areas on top of concealer and I found it dissapointing in this regard- it's simply not pigmented enough for those of us with crazy dark circles and I found it made creasing worse worn over my concealer (NARS radiant).
It didn't do as much as i'd hoped for me personally in brightening either, after a while it dried down to a colour I found a little too dark to give that 'wow' bright effect it had when I'd initially applied it.
There are also a lot of good aspects to it though- I've used it on a friend and it gave a lovely 'glow' look to his skin without the usual shimmery/glittery look and looked a lot brighter than on my skin. The thinner formula is kind to dry skin too, it doesn't add too much texture to dry/flakey like highlighting with a concealer would and it blends out well.

All in all for the price it just isn't worth it for me personally, but as odd as it sounds I actually think that it's a pretty decent product overall.

Liquid -MAC -Studio Face and Body Foundation

Love it! I use it everyday. Finishing is beautiful (might be too dewy for some people). My skin is red and oily. Though the coverage is light, yellow undertone does help to cover the redness. Since it's water base, my face is less oily than the day I'm using other fdt. I like to apply it with my hands, it's very bendable, however, it sticks to skin quickly, so you should apply it with quick hands. I would repurchase it!

My go to everyday foundation. I have it in C3 and love how you can build it up from sheer to medium coverage. Just have to wait for the layers to dry a bit (I like to wear just one layer for everyday two if I’m going out or am on a date with my husband). After washing and moisturizing my face I use my fingers (washed hands only) in a tapping motion to apply this foundation for a natural look. I’m pregnant right now and my usual go to which is Nars sheer glow is making me break out so the Mac F&B is a lifesaver because I’ve already had it in my collection and I love it. It holds up pretty well even in hot California weather although I do take it on the go for the occasional touch up because I have combination skin and don’t have the patience to fuss with primers but I have the small bottle and it’s easy to just throw it in my bag no fuss no spills. I also like the plastic bottle because it’s sturdy and I’m clumsy and tend to drop stuff.


Skincare - Face -MAC -Prep and Prime Fix+

This isn't for me...
The biggest problem with this product is the bottle. The nozzle gives too strong mist, it isn't fine and it isn't airy. It sprays too strong and gives too much product in a single spritz.
No matter what it stays sticky on my skin (I have normal to dry, dehydrated skin). It makes it looks oily.
I've tried it for foiling my eyeshadow, but too much product comes out of the bottle to spritz my little flat brush.

Not impressed, can't recommend.
