I have dry skin that is flaky and it peels.I always moisturize before i put foundation on and i care for my skin so i did my normal regime. Then as i applied the MAC foundation i thought it was going to be great as it has a water base and felt very liquid but when i put it on it just made my skin look dryer. It looked flaky and stuck to my dry patches.No good im afraid and a waste of money! I will be returning. I got mine for £22 which is ridiculous for something that gave me no benefits.

Really loved the finish on this product.. It blended beautifully on my skin, and the color was perfect C2,( Nc25 for reference). Loved how it stayed on all day and with a translucent powder on top, kept me shine free all day with one touch up. Packaging was better than the one from make up forever, the only problem was it made me break out. After like 3 days of usage, i had forehead full of pimples and my cheeks broke out in these horrible cystic pimples. I dont know what else the break out could have came from, so I stopped using it and haven't broken out like that since. I wanna give it one more try before I return it because it is water based. The studio fix liquid I know breaks me out but not the powder. Dont know why but overall finish of the product was great but just gave it three lippies cuz of the breakout issue.If anyone knows what ingredient in it might have triggered the break out let me know..

Great product.Pros: Good value for the price, its about $30, but the bottle is really huge! Buildable coverage, wide variety of colors. Gives a sheer and dewy, natural looking finish. Kind of like a tinted moisturizer. Never cakey, doesn't clog pores or make me break out. cons: texture is a little bit runny, but thats probably why it never feels cakey. The bottle has a crap design. Cheap looking plastic and the opening is odd

I love this foundation! It was my first MAC one and i was really impressed. I went to the MAC store in London and the lady was really helpful. She didn't try and talk me into anything i didn't want and knew exactly what would suit my skin type and tone. I said that i was going for a more matte finish and so she recomended this. It was pricey at £23 but you get a big bottle and don't have to use very much. I use it everyday with my Mineralise natural skinfinish and always get a flawless finish. It feels light on my skin and lasts all day. It doesn't cake and you only need a light layer to get its full effects. The packaging is good as the nozzle allows for easy application. My only complaint is that it is quite runny in cosistency and too much can sometimes come out of the bottle whereas if it had a pump mechanism then you could get out exactly how much you needed. Overall, i love this product and will deffinatly buy again!

I was devastated when I heard that Select Tint was d/c. So, I asked the m/u board for help and this was recommended by several people. I'm NC30 and the color C3 is close, but not exact. The consistency is very watery. This is slightly more sheer than Select Tint, but if you want, you can build the coverage. I'm not head over heels in love the way I was with S/T, so up for swap it goes.

I may have finally found my HG foundation. I am NC35 in studio fix fluid and C4 in face and body which is a bit yellower and therefore, a better color match for me.I love the texture/consistency of this foundation. It feels very light and blends quite easily. I use mac's 190 fndt brush, the 187 or philosophy's supernatural brush (depending on which is clean/closer to me at the time) and all work well. This foundation sets quickly and I've found the best way is to apply it to one section of the face at a time. It gives a light dewy finish- no discoball or greasebucket effects. The coverage is sheer/light at first but it can be built up to medium without caking. I have combo skin and even though I don't wear this in the summer, this is perfect for fall/winter. I always wear primer underneath and then powder my t-zone afterward. I've found the finish looks very natural and I don't have to work hard to make it blend into my neck. And because it does set quickly, I never get foundation marks on scarves or the collars of my shirts.I do admittedly have mostly clear skin and really just want something to even my skin tone all over and apply concealer only to my trouble spots. So if you need a lot of coverage or want a matte finish, I wouldn't recommend this.

I can't believe I've never reviewed this! I remember getting a bottle in C2 several years ago (like back in 2000, when I was in college), and not liking it too much and swapping it away. Then, a year ago, a friend on MUA gave me a sample of it in C3, and I remember thinking, "I like this foundation and should get it." So... I ended up ordering the C3 from online, since there is no MAC Pro store near me.Colorwise, I think C3 is a *tad* dark for me. It doesn't look horrible, but to match my neck perfectly, I think I would need to go 1/2 a shade down. So, I may end up exchanging for the C2 - haven't decided yet. I've never been able to find a perfect match with MAC... I usually wear NC20-25 (depending on the formulation) -- so the online artist recommended C3 for me.As for the actual formula, it is very watery, and once you blend into your face, the "water" sort of evaporates and leaves the color. It does feel very slightly tacky/sticky to the touch, and the finish is dewy, so if you're looking for matte, this is not the foundation for you.I think you could set with powder, but I like the dewy look. It is pretty long-lasting, and doesn't have an issue with sweat or water, BUT -- does get broken down with oil. So, if you have an oily complexion, this may slip around a bit on your skin (one lippie off for that.)As others have noted, this does have a citrusy scent to it -- I think on the ingredients, there is citrus extract. It also said that Sandalwood is one of the ingredients... don't know why! (Not sure what the benefits of sandalwood are on the skin.) This comes in a large 4oz bottle and retails for $32USD. The bottle is kind of large, and I don't know how long it would take me to use up all of it, but I like the plastic dropper type opening and the see-through plastic.I don't remember this breaking me out, so if it doesn't, then I will definitely repurchase. continued >>

I asked the SA for light coverage to even out skin tone, and that is exactly what this does. However, this foundation has the curious property of being the correct color for me on some days and not on others. I was matched as a C2. It's great on cloudy days and very clear days, as well as at night, but (and this is weird) on partly cloudy days, it looks orange. Fortunately it's not the only foundation in my box. My skin does not look good in a "dewy" finish, so powder is a must. And it must be clear powder -- I tried two tinted powders and ended up with a Barbie-colored face. The consistency of this makes me think of oil mixed with water. The water thins the foundation, makes it spreadable, then it evaporates, leaving the foundation behind. The effect on your skin is cool and yummy. I've found that spreading it very quickly (with fingers or a brush), then allowing it to set and smoothing it out (with fingers) produces the best results. Set with a light dusting of clear powder using a large brush, it lasts on me for about 4-5 hours before needing to be re-applied. But then, makeup rarely stays on me for too long. And, FWIW, it seems to help this foundation a great deal that I apply a 10% glycolic acid treatment to my face every night before bed. Outside of that, the packaging won't travel in a carry-on (4oz), and is also a bit clunky for a purse. The cap affixes tightly, so no leaks. You have to shake it for a while and keep shaking it while you're applying. In hindsight, I should have had the SA make up my whole face so I could get a good idea of the (not-matte) finish before I bought it.

Very buildable coverage and natural enough looking but feels heavy. When i had it on i couldn't wait to wash my face and it broke me out. Very dewy finish. Like i just finished working out dewy (which isn't the look im going for unless im working out). toned down with light layer of powder. beautiful, stays till you take it of. IMO MUFE face and body is a lot nicer and natural looking and not as opaque or thick however its cost more for less product.
