Works great at covering scars ! I have leftover acne marks and they disappeared ! However I had to retouch it due to my oily skin. Great buy though. Can use it with powder too !
Ever since I started using this foundation, I find it hard to use anything else. I would say I have normal to oily skin. Yes, I do set this foundation with my Studio Fix Powder but even so, this foundation lasts forever and doesn't crack or look cakey. I've also never had so many people ask what I'm wearing or tell me my skin looks like porcelain. I've heard a lot of people say it's too heavy for them, but I honestly don't think it is. The coverage is medium to full and very build-able. And I think you get a lot of product, especially for the price. Some might think the price is steep, but compare it to other high end brands, and you'll change your mind. Also, I've had mine for 2 plus months and I haven't even used past the top screw part of the bottle. The only reason I gave the packaging a 4 out of 5 is because you have to buy the pump separately. Oh! Another thing..the smell. I personally love the way it smells. It also has to do with the fact that it reminds me of my first time using a MAC foundation and how happy I was with the product. Anyways, I've noticed that Estee Lauders Double Wear Foundation smells exactly the same. Weird, because EL owns MAC. Hmm....
Last but not least, yes, I would buy this over and over again. It's my absolute favorite and nothing has compared to it. I even got my mom addicted to it, and if you knew her, that's really saying something, because she never spoils herself, but that's the one thing she has to have.
I bought this foundation for my sister and she is NC15, the product has a nice medium matte coverage, but the only problem is it does oxidize quite a bit, so it starts looking orange on her. The smell is also strong, but it does settle.
This foundation offers great coverage and can last all day, however, for me, it feels heavy on the skin which is why I would not repurchase this product again. Also I found that the tone was overly yellow and slightly aggravated my skin. I think this is a good foundation to use for special occasions or once in a while but definitely not an everyday foundation.
This foundation has to be known. I mean, at first I bought it this winter when I was dealing with skin problems due to hormonal problems, and it was simply a medium-full coverage foundation, sometimes even too heavy. 2/3 weeks later I discovered that you have to try on your skin this product to understand the perfect amount to use, the right way to apply it etc. Everyone is different, I think that there's not a universal correct use, you have to learn what is best for you.
Anyway, now my skin problems are quite solved, and if in the first weeks I was using 3 pumps of foundation I soon learned that only 1 and half, correctly apply, was enough. I love it, even if now that is summer (in Italy is very hot) I often tend to use something lighter.
I wouldn't recommend this to a dry skin, and also not for those who are really oily (I believe). It lasts pretty well, specially with powder (I use the Stay Matte). The smell I don't mind it, I never noticed something really strange, specially few minutes after the application.
For those who are complaining about the color and the finish I can only say that one of the best thing at MAC is that you can get samples to try few days at home what you're gonna buy. Too yellow/orange? Don't use the NC but the NW. I absolutely suggest everybody to try samples at home before buying something expensive.
Oh, I'm very fair, and NC15 is really perfect for me!
My faaaav Mac foundation. I've tried Pro Longwear as well as Studio Fix(the regular one) and this one is the best for sensitive skin because it's not as thick as Pro Longwear but still covers really, REALLY well. You can also mix this with other foundations to create a custom shade and it doesn't get progressively oily throughout the day. The only thing is I wish it came with a pump but you can buy one separately. It's also not too expensive!
This is the first high end foundation i have bought and i loved it the first time i put it on i have really oily skin and and acne don't get me wrong it has brilliant coverage but it seems to oxidise on my skin and leave me looking orange even though i am really pale it looks even worse the colour i use is NC15 it smells horrible and it has made my acne worse . I am trying to use it up because it cost a bit for a 14 year old so i am mixing it with my favourite foundation max factor lasting performance and i lt looks so much better the colour is to yellow toned for me but i am making it work by mixing a more pink toned foundation . overall i would not waste my money on this foundation its not worth it the only thing i like it the packaging because it looks expensive but wouldn't be good for traveling because its glass .
I hate this foundation. I tried nc42, and it was too orange. I then exchanged it for a nc40 and it made me look to yellow. After 3 hours it slides off my face and look like an oily mess. My HG foundation is Revlon Colorstay (360 golden caramel) is 100% way better than the Mac SFF! Don't recommend, will not repurchase!!!
I loved this foundation once I applied it as it gave me great coverage (a little too much). It looked great, the colour was perfect but after about an hour or two my skin started to get overly sensitive and I have never experienced sensitive skin with many products. At the end of the day when I took off my makeup, I broke out on my my cheeks. I wouldn't repurchase + the product smells so bad. The smell lingers as well.
I might buy this again but they gave me the wrong color so I looked really orange and dark and it melts of my face and look greasy
