This is my everyday foundation!!! I love it for my combination skin! you dont need much product so this will last you a good time... the only thing negative about this its it price.. it kind of expensive and one you put the foundation on your hand or in your face it dries very fast so you need to blend it quickly with your hands or brush!>
Leaves a natural look and covers all my blemishes and blackheads!
I like how this is matte and not too heavy. It looks great when I first apply it. However, it is quite dry, as it gave me some flaky patches within a hour. I rarely ever get bothered by scents, but the scent of this foundation gave me a headache, and it didn't seem to fade even after four hours.
I love this foundation. It's not too pink and not too yellow. I use it every day and it doesn't hurt my super-sensitive skin. I also love the spf 15 for my fair skin. The pump is really helpful to get the right amount.
Pro: this foundations lasts all the day, really. No transfer. Medium coverage. Matte. Perfect color on me: I've a very light skin tone (NC15), so number 1 suits on me.
Con: not so easy to apply, use a stippling brush or hands, it dries quickly.
Note: this foundation is perfect for combination/oily skin types, not for dry skin.
Conclusions: I think
Soooo sadly this product didn't work for me... I wanted to try something new and after reading great reviews about it on Youtube and on MA, I thought that this was it.
I have a veeerryyy oily skin, and as soon as I put the foundation on my face, the color starts to oxydize (I'm not kidding there, I'm thinking about taking a picture so you could see.) I don't know what's wrong with my skin, maybe the ph of it is prone to change foundation color or whatsoever, but it really is frustrating me.
I bought it in color 1.5... Hmmm I guess I'm gonna have to find a use out of it or swap it..
Ok now I've never been a big fan of mac foundations as i just cant seem to get the right shade for me however when I heared that they were introducing s new foundation that would adapt to the undertone of you're skin I wad super excited as their nc colour are to yellow and ashy on my skin and nw to red.. But my closest match would be a nc45.. Went to the counter and tried a shade 7 which was to yellow and light so I decided to take a chance and buy 7.5 and oh my god what a Jump it was 7.5 being just half a shade darker seemed more 3 shades darker.. As I was extemely upset at nit taken the time out to b coloured match I decided to wear the darker colour anyway it did make me look supertanned but with my setting powder I was good to go.. I must say that I loved the way it sat and looked on my skin it had a lovely matte but not to matte coverage.. But this foundation is not fir those that are looking for a sheer coverage definitely more moderate and I also love the pump .. If there wasn't such a high colour jump between 7 and 7.5 or if there was a shade 7.25 this foundation definitely would have got a higher rating but ima buy a shade 7 so I can mix the colours and get my shade
I came into MAC looking for a foundation that would perfectly match my face and neck.
My current foundation will only match my face - which is a tiny bit darker then my neck. So when i try to blend my face foundation into my neck its slightly more yellow (i use MUFE foundation) its not really noticeable but i don't like the color difference.
The sales girl quickly matched me to a foundation from the Matchmaster collection- applied the color to half my face and walked away to help another customer.
The color match was spot on. (1.0) she applied in what felt like a thin layer but every pore was super exaggerated and in the store lighting it looked very heavy.
When i came home a few hours later i how badly the foundation slipped around and into my pores even more. I'm disappointed in the staying power and i cant imagine this product lasting though a full work day.
but the color was perfect! and i unfortunately didn't have anyone to ask for the same color in a different formula (or if it even exists)
Maybe next time :-/
Iím really on the fence about this foundation! I love the color match! I have a really hard time trying to find colors that match well and donít oxidize on me, so it definitely gets a 5 on that because I am not left orange, lol. I also like that it has a pump so I donít have to waste too much time or product to get it out. The thing Iím on the fence about is if it breaks me out. I donít think it does, but I also tried 3 other things and Iím about be on my TOTM so it could be a combination of those things! On an average day, I got about 7-8 hours of wear before I needed to blot. I also use MACís Prep&Prime translucent powder with this and the SA said thatís what helps to set it. I have very oily skin and was terrified to use MAC foundations because of their harsh products. Iím glad I did, and as long is this isnít the culprit for my breakouts, Iíll keep using it!
UPDATE: i stopped using this foundation and most of my breakouts went away:( Shame i paid $33 for it, but i guess i'll swap it away!
I guess I am the only one who dislike this product
It's far from a match master. I am an NC35 and I have found that neither a 3 or 4 match me. The color is just to weird and pink for my skin. I really wanted to like this foundation because I believe it can be the perfect coverage for me. However, after testing it on my skin for about 3 months, I now know that I will not be repurchasing. However, the texture is amazing. It's lightweight and full coverage.
Wow I've found the right Mac foundation for me, finally!
I am an nc 40 and I wear shade 4 in this. It's slightly darker than my skin but I like to look tanned.
Smells bad but has a great consistency, not too runny but not too thick.
Blends so well using my 187 Mac brush and if I want to look dewy, a spray of fix+ does the trick.
Lasts all day on my oily t zone face, and does such a great job at controlling my oil I am not oily until the 8th hour. Doesn cling to my dry spots (on my nostrils and mouth) and works so well with my select cover up and pro longwear concealers.
Great coverage, more like a medium and the finish is semi-matte.
Pump bottle, 35ml. One pump doe my whole face so this will last forever! Love the SPF and I don't turn overly white in photos. I turns slightly white but it isn't even gross or ugly.
Only downfall is the stinky smell. Goes away after an hour or two
I also think this is slightly transferr proof...close to the pro-longwear without the waxy feeling and much easier to blend
I have very pimple prone skin and this doesn't break me out.
Love love love this liquid foundation, so happy.
Just found out that I can blend this is with my fingers and the result is as good as an application with the 187! I've never used my fingers before because I always have bad experiences with streaking and coverage, but this stuff is fabulous.
I love this way better than my mufe hd, Chanel long wear and LancŰme teint idole fresh wear.
