I LOVE this product for what it is, it gives really good coverage. I love the packaging because its so easy. The colour match (NC20) is perfect for me. Lasts all day, barely need to powder. I could go on.The ONLY reason I wouldn't repurchase this, is because the scent gives me a headache. It smells so strong (and I'm a migraine sufferer, so am particularly sensitive to it) that I ended up giving a half used tube away. Such a shame, because other than that it was like my HG foundation!

I wanted to like this foundation as it feels so nice and easy to apply. I am an NW25 and I think that the shade is an exact match for me. However - I'm not sure if this is because I live in a tropical country where scorching heat is a norm, or my t-zone is just quite oily - the foundation quickly melts in my face. This problem can be easily addressed by a dab of powder, though. But what I can't really stand is that a lot of water comes out of the tube before you get any product if you leave the container tumbling in your bag or lying horizontally. It's quite a hassle.

when I went to my MAC counter asking for a foundation I couldn't stress enough to the sales rep that I have extremely oily skin and even after my constant stressing, she still gave me studio sculpt. I am personally a NC42, though I'm shade Barcelona in NARS sheer glow foundation, and I find this foundation a little too yellow based. though I love the gel-based foundation, I find it too heavy on my face and I get way too oily within 2 hours of wear even after constantly applying oil absorbing powder. though it's an amazing foundation with great coverage, it's too cakey for me. I would not re-purchase.

This is borderline heavy/greasey on me and I have dry skin. I first bought this when I was probably 14 in nc35 and loved it i used the whole tube. I recently got it again in nc30 ( 4 years later) and I look like an orange mess. God damn, that means I must have been an even orangier mess in nc35, why oh mac whyyyy. Nc25 is too light for me so what to do? For reference my correct shade is like Punjab in Nars Sheer Glow. The finish is actually nice and smooth looking, but you can feel the cake to be honest if you're not careful with how much you apply. My tube is sitting aimlessly on my table.

my shade: NW15i love this foundation its my favorite so far. it lays on really pretty and flawless, i use the mac 188 small duo face brush.But a tip i to use a white translucent powder on it like the make up forever HD powder or else it will look cakey.The only problem is that it take a long time to dry if you dont set it with powder.

My skin: Acne prone, quite heavy scaring. Oily t-zone with minimal dry matches.My colour: NC40 Who would it suit: Anyone with dry skin, wants a dewy finishI like this foundation, I don't love it, however thats not to say its a bad product, I just dont feel it goes well with my skin. I am just going to state my personal pros and cons so you can judge for yourself!:)Pros:Medium coverage and easily builds to fullVery easy to blend Amazing colour range but expect nothing less from macLeaves the skin looking fresh and glowy after application Applies lovely with a beauty blender Decent if you are only going out for a few hoursCons:Can look greasy if you have oily skin like meDoesn't feel great on the skin due to the finish STINKS! cant even explain the smell but it puts me off when its on my faceOnly last 3-4 hoursTransfers like CRAZY Need lots of powder to set for oily skin I think it broke me out slightly but its hard not to find a foundation that does not do this since my skin is acne prone. Hope my review helped x

I have a combination skin with dry patches on my cheeks and oily t-zone. When I went to MAC, my shade is NC25 and the MUA recommended this foundation for combination skin like mine. I love the gel-like texture of the foundation and a little bit of this product is enough to give me a medium-cover that I usually go for. The product feels light on the skin and doesn't make me look chalky. The finish is gorgeous and my face looks instantly brighter after application. The packaging is light, sleek and easy to carry around when I'm traveling, which I love!. Although I don't use this on an every day basis, this remains as my go-to foundation for events.

I have oily acne prone skin so maybe this foundation wasn't meant for me however this has been the only foundation that hasn't been able to work for me at all. The colour match is perfect for me which is rare as I am so pale (I bought nc15) but unfortunately that is the only good thing about this foundation. Regardless of brush or sponge or even fingers, it doesn't matter what I use it all ends up the same; patchy, cakey and disgusting. It doesn't set so it always moves around my face and wipes of easily. It barely lasts an hour on my skin without getting shiney and I don't mind a little shine but this is greasepan shine which isn't attractive. So unfortunately I wont be repurchasing this foundation and will be storing what i have left for days when I will just be popping to the shop quickly as thats the amount of time it looks good for. I was really dissappointed.

I went into MAC and got matched with this foundation in NC15. The foundation feels lovely and smooth and when it is first applied it looks great. However, I found that the product never seemed to dry and came off onto everything. After around 2 hours it looked as if I hadn't bothered to apply any make up at all. It clung to dry patches around my nose and ended up patchy and cakey. I was actually so dissapointed with this product that I complained directly to MAC and got a refund.

I've been wearing this foundation for about a year now, and until recently I loved it, but it's become far too dewy for me lately. I have very dry skin so this was great in winter, very hydrating, never showed dry patches and always had a healthy glow. In the past few months, however, I noticed it was looking greasier and greasier. I'm torn, because this gives such great coverage, has an AMAZING texture that blends easily, comes in a great range of colours, and you actually get a good amount of product for your money (40mL). It also doesn't have any sort of 'paint' smell, but it's just too greasy!
