Full coverage, photographs beautifully.
This is NOT an everyday fundation, since it feels pretty heavy (but you might like it for every day if you have some serious acne scarring, etc.). I use it for special occasions-going out, birthdays, weddings.
It does oxidize a bit, so if you are in between the shades, choose a lighter one.
I see some people compare it to Revlon Colorstay, I have both, and there is quite a difference between the two. Colorstay doesn't have as much coverage, it's medium coverage and doesnt feel as heavy.

So Mac was my first "high end" foundation, back when I was 20 or so, and I was very underwhelmed. I was under the impression that "nc" meant "natural cool" and so I was quite displeased with the dark orange that "nc15" gave me. For years I went around telling people how much I hated Mac, and how badly it oxidizes and how their colors aren't light enough. Finally, my coworker (who also works as a MU at Mac) told me that "nc" basically means "not cool," and "nw" means "not warm." Way to be confusing, Mac! So upon her advice, I ordered "nw10" from the website and oh... My gosh. The perfect, starkly pale pink-toned full coverage foundation I always wanted (and needed, to match my neck) does exist! This did not turn orange, and I have NO PORES with this stuff. I've been using lorac's Np1 for years, and I loved everything about it except for the sheer-medium coverage. I like my skin to look really even and smooth (don't we all) and because I have facial redness, nothing ever quite covered and matched at the same time. Plus, at the end of the day, my LORAC foundation gave me major shine around the nose, and cracking around the mouth, but with Mac, my foundation looks as flawless now, as it did when I put it on 12 hours ago. I'm so happy, now. I believe in Mac again!

This is my usual day to day foundation, I've repurchased for years albeit in various different shades as the sales consultants mis-matched me a lot! This is full coverage and can look and feel quite cakey. I use NC15 which is the lightest shade available in my country, but even this is too dark. Warning, it oxidises like mad, atleast on me it does anyway.I've started mixing mine with mac strobe cream recently to make it more dewy and less cakey looking which seems to work a treat.I really like the coverage which is why I continue to purchase and it does seem to last me a fair amount of time for the price.Be aware it has SPF in it, therefore tends to leave a white cast on photos.

Great foundation to have in your kit. Lasts all day. Full Coverage. Is abit hard to find a match, one shade is a bit too light the next up is oxidises too dark. I am nc15. I have repurchased this 3 times now because the quality and longevity is just that good. Works for both oily and dry skin in my opinion.

This foundation looked good initially, but oxidized BIG TIME and turned my face orange. I also made the mistake of accidentally sleeping with this on and woke up the next morning with new lines around my eyes. Bummer.

I have great difficulty finding foundations that match my skintone, as I am very pale and have definite pink undertones, so anything even slightly yellow makes me look terrible. I am NW10 in this foundation and it is a perfect match - the most perfect match I've ever found!This product is perfect for my very dry, eczema-prone skin. It seems to sit very kindly on my face, staying a little bit moist throughout the day rather than drying down completely flat. It gives a nice subtle glow to my skin, too. You do feel it on your face, so if you're looking for something that doesn't feel like foundation, then you won't find it here. It doesn't feel like a mask, but you can definitely tell that there's something on your face. It lasts a decent amount of time, although it can start to separate on my upper lip after awhile, which is where I get very dry and some eczema. The only thing that I hate is the smell. It's very chemical and strong, and even though I don't have sensitive skin, it isn't that pleasant.

This is a very high coverage foundation. Very. But I found this to be very cake. However, it's not so apparent in photographs. In fact, it photographs beautifully!. But when you look up close, you can see that there is something on your skin. Other than that, the foundation does have a long lasting power.The shade range is versatile but the NC ranges can sometimes be too orangey. In the summer, I am usually matched too NC42. However even then, it can be orangey and in the winter its unusable. However NC40 oddly is pinky? and NC37 is too light for me although it has the yellow undertones I need. I don't think the shade range is too bad. In fact I notice Indian girls like myself gravitate towards MAC foundations because they offer multiple shades for yellow under tone skins! Most foundations lack that and it sucks. I really think this is a great foundation for photographs if you are someone that is in desperate need for a high coverage foundation. This will do wonders there. It's one of the few foundations that doesn't have an awkward flashback. However, you definitely need to spend time color matching because MAC's color system is super confusing. It's definitely not the most useable foundation. I don't think I want to look like cake face all the time. I never purchased this foundation (only sampled multiple times) and definitely will not purchase.

This is definitely among my favourite foundations. I'm in the shade NC 35 in the summer and NC 30 in the winter. Pros:- Great colour range - Long lasting - Medium build-able coverage - Suits mature skin (my mother loves it) Cons:- A bit pricey- Tends to oxidise (nothing that can't be fixed with some powder) - No pump (a separate one could be bought) I moisturise, put on primer and wait for it to set. Then, I apply this foundation with a foundation brush and tap it into my skin. I apply my Pro Long-wear concealer and set everything with MAC's sheer pressed powder. Then, I apply MAC's hydrating mist on top which takes about a minute to dry. It gives me the most gorgeous, luminous look ever. On my third bottle currently.

I was quite skeptical about buying Mac foundation after hearing bad reviews from my friends. They have said that Mac foundation becomes quite orange when applied overtime, although great when applied for the first few uses. Also that it leaves a cakey finish. Although, after hearing all the hype from make up artists about how well Mac Studio Fix Fluid works with oily skin, I decided to give it a go. The price is for this foundation is $50 in Australia and I believe worth the price. You get a good amount of product. The packaging is ok, although the matte lid gets easily dirty and there is no pump which is disappointing.The texture of the foundation is great, it applies smoothly and is medium to full coverage. There is no smell to this product which is great, and it leaves my skin feeling light but also gives it a matte finish. The only bad thing about this foundation is that after 5+ hours, my face begins to look splotchy and feel dry around my nose and mouth.Overall, it's a great product and will be re-purchasing.
