I used this foundation once, never again. I gave it a four being fair that the product did it's job because it does cover imperfections. However, as soon as I used it, my face started to itch like hell. It also looks cakie, and I don't like that at all. My skin is dry and sensitive at the same time and perhaps it was an allergic reaction. I love MAC products and maybe this was just not for me, but it does cover.
I had lots of ups and downs with this fondation(mostly down).but now since it's starting to get cold my face is geting lighter(the foundation was to light for my face in the summer)and now the foundation is starting to look good on me. I will up date u if I end up loving this foundation or not and y.
Update: I love this foundation so far it gives me a perfect finish and is light on my skin! So, for now I well buy another one(if I don't find a better 1) and u should try it to (u don't have to buy it if ur friends have it just try there's for a day or go to MAC and go try it on there!
very thick so you only need a teeny tiny amount and it provides amazing coverage. this stuff covered up a huge birth mark on my face.
I wouldn't recommend this product if you have oily skin or if you are acne prone.
I found this very heavy... I dont need that much coverage, I dont know why the MA at MAC suggested this to me ; my skin is pretty flawless, I do never breakout. I keep it for winter time, only, and I even mix it up with my moisturising cream to lighten it. Otherwise the color match is awesome (you'll sure find yours, there is so many!), the coverage is exceptionnal, hide any imperfection and the finish is great.
This is a great foundation to discover when you are starting off with makeup. I found the formulation alot nicer than Revlon Colorstay.
It was my everyday foundation for a good year or two until I went away to a warmer climate and it just felt too heavy and very greasy. I then purchased Macs Mineralize Satinfinish which was a nice change because of its light texture. I'm still using the satinfinish now, even back from my trip and I ended up giving the fix fluid to my older sister who needed a foundation and she loves it.
Worst foundation. Looks like you added a pound of oil on your face, clogs your pores and broke me out. Would NOT recommend.
Horrible for people with sensitive skin, I bought this in hopes of not breaking out like the Studio fix powder. Of course that was not the case, even after almost a week, the bumps it gave me still has not fully gone away. I didn't like the coverage it gave, either. Just wasn't enough to cover my slightly lighter skin discolorations on my cheeks. Made it OBVIOUS I was wearing makeup; which is never a good thing. I returned this product after a week of use. It's terrible.
I don't know if it's just me but this makes me skin SUPER oily.. I mean like a kind of oily i've never seen before... Which is such a shame because the colour match is perfect nc35 sometimes nc37... :(
I dont even know where to start. *sigh*
I think i was duped into buying this by the MA at the MAC counter, either that i or was temporarily colour blind! The shade seemed to match my skin tone in the store and i am also wary of that because we all know store lighting can be... misleading. I suppose the shade was the right colour but i cant see anybody looking remotely human in NC45... I certainly didnt. I know that some people have warm skin tones and some people have cooler, but this made me look GREY...! I was so thoroughly disappointed but stupidly continued to use it by mixing it with a darker shade id bought previously and never used... BAD IDEA. I have never broken out so badly, i mean i dont even need make up to break me out- that happens anyway! It just sits on top of the skin and made me look ill. Even if they found the absolute perfect shade for my skin i would not be buying this again, the formulation is awful and many friends of mine with different skin types have said this also.
I used a sample of this product first. I was pretty fed up with Mac and foundations in general. Ive used Mary Kay, foundation from the Body Shop, and the NC 35 Select. None of these matched my skin, or went on smooth enough. I accidently told the lady i was a NC30 which used to make my face look white, and she gave me a sample of the NC35 in Studio Fix. I love it, it goes on so smooth. I use a moisturizing face cream, leave it on for a few minutes, and then put my primer on. And then I apply this and set it off with the studio fix powder. I will stick to this, until I find something better.
