I'm giving this 6 out of 5!!!
This is the most amazing product man, or should I say, MAC has made. I have really oily skin, so this suits me so well. I think you need oily skin for this product. Adored by celebs and civilians alike, it's my favourite make-up product ever. Amazibg coverage and stays on forever. I love it!!!
Well, what can I say about this product? Hmm.... DON"T BUY IT!! It accentuate your dry skin, hard to apply and the lasting powder? Don't don't know about the lasting powder......if only I get the chance to put it on my skin then ok. I applied it lightly barely a touch of it only and flakes flakes flakes!! What an aweful product and just imagine if I swipe over the top of this foundation. It'll just sit on my face!! Meant to be in the trash.
Way to heavy on my face - I could actually feel like I have an extra layer of skin on my face. It broke me out. And I looked fake. Its really cakey, i could see the strokes of makeup on my face. I will NOT repurchase this.
My husbands OLD spackle is easy to spread than this fdtn. This is too thick to spread, and will NOT blend. I used MAC fdtn brush and had to poke at the product to get any on the brush, then I had to jab at my face to put it on. This stuff just does not spread. It does provide full coverage, but needs to be reformulated to be creamier. What a bust for MAC. My color was W10 from the MAC pro store because I'm like freaky white, and I was finally happy with the perfect color match to my skin, BUT can't use this product because it's so non-user friendly.
I love this foundation. Let me start by saying, do not use this as a substitute to your regular foundation! You need to mix this with something else, or use it VERY sparingly. The less the better.
I have very dry skin and this is how i apply. I use MAC hyperreal on my face and blend it really well. I then run my finger along the top of this and it pulls off a very small amount. I put it on the sides of my nose and on any places on my face that need extra coverage. it works great, i love it!
I tried this foundation b/c I was looking for one for my engagement function so I needed something heavier for pictures. I'm not sure what other reviewers meant when they said it was not even air proof. I had trouble getting it off even after using a glycolic wash. I had to re-scrub with regular soap to get it all off. I'd stay the staying power is definitely good and has great coverage.
The only thing I am dissapointed with is that it feels a bit clammy on my face after about 3 hours. I'd prefer something that retained a more powdery finish all day. But all in all, I like this foundation. I use C35 (the yellowy range).
Next time I am listening 2 the reviews and not the make up artist! I mean it says waterproof, yeah RIGHT its not even AIR proof. I decieded to try it on a Sunday (try it the day before i go back 2 work) I didnt do anything really I mean it was a Sunday well within an hour half of it was gone off my face, I had even bought the foundation brush WHAT a joke ( well 4 this product) It did look good when I first put in on I didnt put much on cuz I did read the reviews and NO u dont need much, I even used the Blot powder with it, (which I couldnt tell u if that worked I will try it next Sunday with my Estee foundatuon) But over all I could have bought a better foundation @ a $ store! NEVER AGAIN!
I can't understand why people would actually buy this stuff. Its so thick and creamy, its almost impossible to apply. In the winter it looks thick, dry and cakey, and in the summer it just melts off ur face. What I hated most about this foundation was that it made me SO oily. It looked like someone smeared my face in a greasy pizza. I didn't think it was even possible for me to get that oily. I have to admit that it didn't break me out and gave me good coverage, but it isn't even worth it if everyone can SEE it on your face. I wouldn't recomend this to anyone.
I LOATHE this product. I started this thinking it would be a good concealer and give me a little more coverage for formal events etc. I was SO wrong. The second you put this stuff on it immediately feels like a mask over your skin. I could literally create a new face with this stuff it's so thick and cakey. Well since I didn't have another foundation to wear that day I had to wear it all day to work. After about an hour I went into the bathroom and my face looked like a grandma's. I looked like I had old wrinkly, oily/greasy, ORANGE, cakey skin. And it was a complete different color than my neck and I got matched by a professional (and bought the lightest shade even though I am pretty tan and it was STILL too dark)..I would never wear this product again.
ok I have dry skin ..As I got older I had to find a more mosturizing foundation..tried expensive as well as cheap and am currently using line minimizing for everyday.(don't get any comments ).Tried Shu Emura,Shiseido and Mirenusse and never impressed ...Since I needed heavier coverage , I was recommended the Mac....first of all its very sticky It does not seem for go on easily even with primer and I know I need to add a little water to the sponge but it's just hard to get even and after some hours it starts accentuating the dry spots and looks terrible. ..I am using it as a consealer and it lasts long
