Thought I would try this instead of the MAC Select liquid foundation, as I wanted something a bit longer lasting.
It is thicker than the Select and cloggs up my foundation brush very quickly, but goes on well, even if it needs a little bit more blending!
I was given the same colour that I had in the select NW20, and its quite a few shades darker, and doesnt match my skin as well as the Select NW20 did.
If I were to buy again, I would definitely go down a shade!
Stays on all day though, isnt drying and doesnt feel too heavy on the skin.
I don't understand why some people say that the colour NC 15 looks orange ??
Well I love this foundation because it has a great coverage and feels very good on your skin.
Aw, sorry MAC, but your foundations just aren't for me. I didn't like the coverage, the look, or the feel of this foundation. I love that they have a great color selection, but otherwise.. not a fave. The formula has a strong scent and broke me out the first day of use. Enough said.
well i bought this product and when the lady from the mac counter matched it on me it looked ok but a bit dark, so i just decided to get a shade lighter (nc30) and when i took it home,, ugh it was sooo orangy and dark on my skin so i was like ok wutever, and then i went out for that night and when i got back my skin was literally ORANGE.it was so dark on me.probably because of occidation or however ur supposed to write it. but yeah when it comes to the color match i think studio fix powder is best. but this thing does cover, ill probably get nc25 next time. oh and by the way the lightning in the mac counters or stores is different from regular daylight so umm becareful and yeah not all of the persons that work there will match ypur foundation good, the majority yeah but not all, ive been matched C, N, & NW so yeah just putting it out there.
I have used this product for about a week and half after purchasing and love it! I was always buying drugstore brands, but now I understand that you get what you pay for! The color matches my skin perfectly, no lines or streakiness when applying, even in the summer when my skintone switches so often from being in the sun. The only thing is that if my skin is a little flaky, this foundation makes it look even worse and applying with a sponge makes it look horrible, you really need to use a brush. One other thing I really love is that even after using several foundations claiming to have a "matte" finish my super oily skin isn't nearly as shiny as it used to be since I've started using this product. I am shocked that I no longer have to constantly blot my face and use pressed powder to absorb all of the extra oil....even after playing sports and working out!
I fricken love this stuff. doesnt break me out or turn the typical cheeto cheerleader prep orange. hardly have any acne but it evens out my skintone. i already have repurchased
MAC foundation colors just don't work for me; they said I was nc15 but that color is too dark and orange for me. However I'm not pink either, so I think MAC colors are not for me. Tried this, it was OK but not what I'd call a mat finish. Kind of slick. I used foundation brush to apply, was not happy. Get a sample before you buy.
I got my make-up professionally done for my birthday party on July 18th. I felt totally confident because I looked in the mirror right after I had it done, and all my pesky painful blemishes felt and looked invisible.
But I looked at pictures, and videos of that day (with high quality digital cameras, both with&without flash, during the day & @ night time) and my skin looks like rubber! All oily, and fake. But you can't see any imperfections...just weird looking skin.
I thought it was just the camera but then I thought, maybe it's because I only had access to a mirror right after I had my make up done. It was a warm summer afternoon, so if you're looking for long-lasting...I wouldn't reccommend this. I went back to the counter where they did my make up because I really loved the products they used on my eyebrows...I looked around at the MAC make-up artists...and their skin looked the same way! Rubbery and dolled up but their flaws were concealed...I assume all the products they use are from MAC so if a customer asked what they are wearing...they can promote the line.
Did not break me out, but I'm looking for a more natural looking coverage that can also help my naturally oily skin...
Kudos for the coverage though...
I have tried every foundation out and this is by far the best. i have allergic reactions to alot of things food, face wash, cosmetics ect. this didnt flare up my skin and it covered everything and evened out my skin tone and hid the scars on my face from eczema. a definite re-purchase!!!!
AMAZING COVERAGE!!!!!!!!!!! When the girls on MUA say that this has amazing coverage there not joking! The MA at mac said that this was medium to full coverage, and she was defintley right. I used to use covergirl clean makeup, and I've used maybelline mineral power and those don't provide enough coverage but this does! All I can say is that if mac ever discontinues this I will cry and cry!
EDIT: OH why does this have to clog my pores!!!!!!!! This stuff was soo good but I get a small pimple every time I use this!!!!!!!! I will still use it though!!!!!
