The best foundation I have ever used. It is definately my fav! It has great coverage and lasts all day. If I could only use one foundation for the rest of my life it would easily be this one. The only bad thing is that it is kind of hard to remove. I highly highly recommend this foundation.
EDIT: After using it for over a week straight, I kind of broke out. I had clear skin my entire life and have never gotten acne before yet this foundation gave me pimples all over my face. It wasn't as horrible as acne but it was enough to make me not want to buy it again.
This foundation is just ok. I do not think i would re-purchase. I prefer the Makeup Forever HD and others (shu uemura, La Mer, Revlon Color Stay) over this one. My first issue with foundation was matching my color. That was a roller-coaster. I finally found that NC-20 was the closest. It is still a bit yellow, but with good blending and application it looks good. The coverage is medium to full, that part i do like. But somehow i just do not get the same flawless look that i get with my Makeup Forever HD or La Mer Foundation. There is something about this foundation that i am not 100% pleased with. It does stay a long time, however in my skin by the end of the day it is almost gone. I get that with almost every fondation except La Mer. I guess this one is just ok, i would not repurchase because i agree that the Revlon Color Stay is a good dupe for it and i do like the colors on the Revlon a lot better. And even thou i do like high end foundations and do not mind paying for them, why would i pay $28 when the Revlon Color Stay i can get it for $5 (on BOGO) and it does the same ? At least to me. It is not completely horrible, but not my HG.
This was actually my first liquid foundation and I had it in NC30, and I hate it. After using it a couple of times, my skin started breaking out like crazy. Pimples were popping up everywhere on my face, and what was worse was the fact that i continued using it for awhile because I didn't know what product was breaking me out. I started to use some of my (then) new items one by one until I found out what was causing the acne - MAC Studio Fix Fluid. Since then I've stopped using it. Besides the whole breakout thing, the coverage of the studio fix was a pretty nice medium coverage. It also went on pretty good. I would definitely not buy this again, and i'm gonna stick to my drugstore HG Revlon ColorStay.
I LOVE this liquid foundation! Its my all time HG. I got acne prone skin, with dry cheeks and slightly oily T-zone. This foundation DOES make the lines in my face stand out (and I'm only 17) but i just blend it out and its good. I use a pump for half my face, add 9 drops of Benefit Moon Beam, and stipple & blend it on, then add another pump and do it all over again for the other side of my face. I love heavy coverage & the tan/glowy look. I have already gone through a bottle of this, & going through my 2nd pretty fast. At $26 a bottle, its not that cheap to replace, but its completely worth it. Oh, and get a pump. Its way easier to control how much you use and it is only $4 continued >>
This product offers great coverage without looking heavy. It applies nicely with a brush and allows your skin to look flawless in photos. I have combination skin so it gets a little oily on my nose but it sits quite nicely on the rest of my face without the flaking. I don't like that it doesn't come with a pump so I just pour out little bits onto the back of my hand each time but that's not a big bother. I wear foundation every day and it's really lasting a long time too because you don't need much if you spread it out well (seeing as its thick you can!).
This foundation has GREAT coverage. but it's soo thick and oily. I have oily skin and after i put it on, an hour later my face is super shiny. even with primer on. I'm a NC 35 but i think it's a bit too dark for me. Also, it broke me out so badly, i don't even know why i used 2 bottles of this.
Now I've switched to Clinique and it works great without getting oily.
This foundation is full coverage and looks great on my NC30 face. It gets oily mid-day but, every foundation I've ever worn does that. SUCKS that this makes me break out. ALOT. All Mac foundations and powders make me break out, I don't know why I keep buying them...
First of all I would like to say that MAC is probably one of my favorite makeup lines - this review is specifically for this product ONLY.
On to the reveiw: This has got to be one of the worst foundations I have ever tried in my life. It didn't sit on my face right and dried my skin out very, very badly. I also had the most horrible breakout I've ever had. The marks took forever to fade away and I even had to use Mederma on some of them. Thankfully they're gone now, but it does make one feel unpretty while they're there. The color also got really funky faster than other foundations I've had.
I recently went to a different MAC store than I usually go to and a MA was going to play with e/s colors on me. She went to put this on so I didn't have done up eyes and nothing else. I asked her if she could maybe not put it on. We got to discussing my problems with it and she said that it is a very drying foundation so she could see WHY it did the things it did to me. Apparently, this foundations colors also run a lot darker than their other foundations.
All in all, I would reccomend getting a sample of this before you purchase it. What doesn't work for me, might work for you, but in my opinion it's just not worth the money to risk the possibility of what happened to my skin.
this pretty much my daily go to. I like the buildable coverage and the texture of it on my skin but after a few hours i usually find myself reapplying it. i use it with a moisterizer and prep + prime underneath and that helps. i just bought the prep + prime skin refined zone and that actually has helped my makeup stay on even longer in my oily t-zone. it also helps when i apply a mineralized skin finish on top of it and spray it with fix plus. over all i think it's a good foundation but i'll keep looking for my HG foundation.
It's very cakey and doesn't spread easily. It looks dry and doesn't look natural.
