Liquid -MAC Cosmetics -Studio Face and Body Foundation

foto

I will always keep Face & Body in my rotation. It’s so unique; while there are many light coverage foundations, this one truly looks like my skin but better. It gives me a lovely glow but feels like I have nothing on my face. I find that the best way to apply is to use your fingers to rub it in until you feel the consistency change and feel kind of tacky. That’s when the magic happens. I can apply more where needed using the same method. I don’t need to set this as it lasts all day. I will powder my t-zone only. I hope that MAC never changes the formula as it’s a cult classic for a reason.

This foundation is a light coverage that is very buildable, and I've been able to build it to a solid medium coverage. If you're struggling with the application, try rubbing it in with your fingers instead of using a brush or a sponge because it's designed to give more coverage and last longer if you rub it in with fingers. This foundation is extremely dewy which sounds amazing for my dry skin but it ended up being a bit too dewy for my liking. It was dewy to the point of making me look greasy. I have to set it every time I use it otherwise it will definitely get lifted off my face. Even if I set it, I can still feel it on my skin which is mildly uncomfortable for me. Once I set it though, it ends up being a very long lasting foundation that doesn't look cakey, drying or emphasise my pores. This will definitely even out your skin tone, but won't do much to cover acne spots. I won't repurchase because I don't like how it feels on my skin, and it takes a bit of effort to get it to the level of coverage I want.

Lip Treatments -MAC Cosmetics -Lip Conditioner (tube)

Edit- ive been reaching for my Nuxe honey lip balm in the pot(works better for prepping lips) and for night time i use Lucas Papaw ointment. it cheaper with similar results. i still love how the Mac one smells but i dont want to pay 16 for a little tube!

long story short, ive tried more than 50 different lip treatments and balms and nothing works as well as this.

Smells amazing, kind of like chocolate chip cookie waffles lol but it does fade away. Feels amazing on the lips and really is worth it. Ive been using carmex but it hasnt been working in these winter months. Carmex is making my lips more dry and i have to put it on constantly. I picked this hidden gem up having low expectation but i did it on a whim because i love the smell of mac lip products so i thought what the heck lets try it. I am soo surpised of how much i love this. Its thinner consistency and more comfortable than carmex. non sticky. Adds a nice shine at first then it just becomes healthy looking lips and super moisturizing without the goopey feeling, its the best lip balm ive tried that really heals. This is better than any drugstore or sephora ones ive used in the past. I have to reapply those a thousand times but this im soothed and healed after one time and i feel it working because it feels smooth and so nice on super chapped lips. The downside is the price :[

My combo skin did not like this, it shows every dry part by my nose and separates making my pores more visible, creeps into any lines at all even with moisturizing prior and using primer applying with a foundation brush. Color I got was NC15 which also comes across slight dark on my skin light medium skin.

What manner of devilry or witchcraft is this stuff??!!
I got some as a wetting agent to use eyeshadow as an eyeliner and applying shimmers & glitters. Works pretty good, but I am still searching for my HG primer and/or eyeshadow base, I still get creasing or transferring of eyeliner on my upper eye. Was going to use it today but I spaced and forgot, and I had just did a glittery eye look that I would need to check like every hour. :/ So I decided to use it as a setting spray and did just one spritz aiming between my eyes. Forgot all about it for like 8 hours and finally remembered to do a face check and d**n - things looked as good, if not better, than they did when I applied it! I even swiped my eyes with my finger and nothing moved, not even my concealer.
So I am here to say 1) this stuff is awesome and 2) everyone who has ever recommended this is right. Yes you, you are right. I will be repurchasing but not immediately because my 1 oz. little is barely gone and I have used it many times already. I am tired of messing around, I don’t want to hear about any other brands or substitutes and will be using this from now on.

Amazing concealer. One bottle lasted for a year and I have naturally dark under eye circles so I ve been using it daily. Great coverage, buildable. I can use only small amount for medium natural coverage for daylight. Really brighten my face.Also it can be built to full coverage and when its setted last whole day. Overall great payoff.

This is packaged well and has everything you will need to conceal dark circles, blemishes, etc. I'm NW 43 and use the palette shade in medium deep. I have warm yellow/orange under tone and this palette works for me.
It blends very well, stays on through a whole day (I usually powder over with Mac Mineralize Natural Skin in Deep Golden), and is pretty opaque. You did Not need to apply a lot of the product so it last a while.This replaced another palette I used from another brand no longer made.I was happy to find MAC have something similar.

Blush -MAC Cosmetics -Powder Blush- Melba

First ever peachy blush that is wearable on my NW30 complexion. I don't detect any pink undertones on me at all, but perhaps the kiss of coral which gently brightens does the trick. Originally purchased to go with my fall lip shades, I've discovered it's a great look with my neutral/mauve lip colors, and most eye looks, also. It lasts all day after initial application, no need to retouch. As much as I am loving the shade I've found that it applies slightly patchy and/or bright if you are not careful. But otherwise, a beautiful, natural looking gorgeous shade.

I don't want my review to discourage anyone who want to buy this. If there wasn't any other options, I highly recommend this. This is light cream in shade Pinklite that you can mix with your foundation, bb cream or wear on its own to give nice luminizing glow. It is beautiful, but can show more of your skin flaws, large pores and I don't like that. There is another brand, By Terry CC serum that doesn't do that and this is why I give this brand a lower rating. Huge difference between the two brands.

I got this yeas ago an finally getting rid of it. I have about NC20 skin and was probably NC25 when I bought this. It looks SO orange on me, and then it oxidizes some on top of that. I do like the texture, but it breaks my skin out badly in small cystic acne. On me, it also went patchy during the day, which isn't something other bronzers typically do. It comes with a lot of product though, so it you're not one that gets affected by all of these issues, it's probably a good product. I would recommend this for those that are at least NC25 and up - maybe it would'nt appear orange on me if my skin was darker

I use the shade give me sun to bronze and this is gorgeous, a medium warm toned bronzer, I’ve tried many bronzers but this is the one I wil always go back to, it’s perfect, finely milled, lovely pigment and also buildable.
High recommend

This is versatile neutral shade of lip pencil, but it is drying and doesn't glide as well compared to Lancôme or CT brand. The staying power is better, but the application take a lot longer.
I would repurchase if CT Pillow Talk wasn't available or to have on humid days where I need this lip pencil to last longer on my lips.

Not my fav finish of MAC lipsticks. I love See Sheer and Flamingo but that's it. Of course, a shiny lipstick won't last long on lips but I wish there was a way to make them last longer.
