I really did not like this foundation. With my dry skin it seemed to really show the dry areas after a while and it looked really ugly! It's also just doesn't feel good on the face and I would never ever use this foundation again... I'm very disappointed.
i really like my mac fluid SPF15 foundation(nw47) it stays on my face all day and my face stays matte in the summer. as much as it cost I think it should come with a pump that's way I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 for the packaging and the smell is a little strange when first applying it but the smell fades shortly haven't had any brakeouts so far so good.
I don't know if I can give a fair review for this product because the service rep gave me the wrong shade, in my opinion. I am fair skinned and she said that NW18 works for me. I think I should've purchased the NW15. I find that this product is too dark for me, although she said it will add a touch of colour for my face. I also wished that it came with a pump, rather than having to purchase the pump separately! Ugh! But it does cover up my acne scars and my dark circles under my eyes. I do like this product, but next time I will insist on NW15.
I am in the shade NC35-NC40 during summer. I really enjoy wearing this foundation. What sets this foundation apart from others is that it doesn't accentuate ( & actually diminishes the appearance of) lines and my crater pores in my t zone. I have combo skin and I do need to blot every few hours. I've read that quite a few people breakout from this but I haven't had any problems. This foundation does have a medicine, paint like smell but it doesn't bother me too much. tl;dr - I love the way this foundation makes my skin look -Don't like that you have to pay for the pump
I love this foundation! I have pretty normal skin but my nose and around my nose gets a little oily in the summer. I also have pretty rosy cheeks year round. This product provides medium to full coverage depending on how much you apply. (I usually apply 1-1/2 pumps). It leaves my skin matte and flawless looking. I use a stippling brush to first dab it onto my skin and then blend it. I've never had any breakouts or irritation from using this foundation. Although this foundation works for me, everyone has a unique skin-type so definitely test it out at a MAC store before you purchase it or buy it online.
I bought this product with the intention of saving a bit of money on my foundation, as i previously used Estee Lauder's double wear foundation (which is about £8 more than mac studio fix fluid). Anyway I found that this product goes on the skin nicely, and it gives you a very nice matte coverage that is medium build-able. It makes your skin look almost flawless, but you can tell that you're wearing makeup. I have quite combination skin, but it's more on the oily skin, and i found that throughout a full day of wearing this it starts to slide down my face, even when i powder! I think that this foundation would be perfect on normal skin; this foundation just didn't work for me, and i really think i could've got the same out of a drugstore foundation for a fraction of the price.
I got a sample of this foundation before I bought it. I would say it is OK. Nothing special, it does the job but I have some drugstore foundations that I think do the same or better job.
good color range
nice packaging with pump
not very long lasting (4 hours ish) after that it starts to get spotty
doesn't keep face matte all day, oil will shine through
prices doesn't match quality
I wish there was a maybe button for purchasing as well. This is an ok foundation. I got it as a sample really and the woman was telling me how it was 3 days worth. Well she gave me the lightest shade ever(TOOOOO LIGHT!!!!) and I don't even need much. so I have had it for 5 days now and still have some. It's crazy!! it does have great coverage and staying power however if you have dry skin or flaky skin, I would steer clear. This tends to look odd on dry patches, and maybe a primer would help A LOT.
OVerall I am unsure about how I feel for sure. I have the powder with it that I sometimes use and it can look cakey around my mouth from smiling so maybe I won't use this foundation anymore because even without powder it does that... I find it slides everywhere and just doesn't stay. In the HUMID georgia weather this just didn't work for me. Sorry mac... another not so good review :(
I wish there was a "maybe" catagorie for the repurchase option because this is definataly a maybe for me. This foundation can look cakey on. It can also make your skin look flawless. It depends on the weather, your moistuizer, your application technique, and your primer. It depends on how often you exfoiliate your face. I noticed this looked best on me when my skin was well moisturized and had been recently exfolitated, and the wheather not too dry or humid. I guess I can relate this fiundation to Goldy Locks. This foundation let me know when I was due for exfoliating since it would look like a grease cake mess on my face when I ws due for an exfoliation. It looks great if pictures, it can last all day. It's not the best foundtion out there, but when you're in a pinch this will work just fine.
I tried this a while back and it turned my face into a pizza!! Looked nice but after a few hours my skin broke out. At first I was think it was my gurly time or something I ate so the next day I put a little more to hide the acne it had given me and I had more zits popping out!!! I stopped using it washed my face good went make up free for a week and was fine after. Never again is that stuff touching my face again!!!
