I used to wear this every day, applied with the sponge - must have looked really heavy! I still keep this in my makeup bag, but I would use it with a brush on t-zone only, or just to set my concealer and give a bit more coverage on blemishes. This is still a good product, but for an all-over powder makeup I would go for Stila IPF. Good colour selection, nice practical compact.
I have slightly oily yellow-based skin and found that the NC30 shade I used turned orange pink on my skin! It alters with oil, beware!
If you like full coverage than this is the foundation makeup for you! I have gone through about 3-4 compacts of these already and will re-purchase. It is not my *favorite* or the best IMO but it serves a specific purpose and I wear it only on special occasions when I want full coverage. I don't advise wearing this during the day.
This stuff gives some serious coverage. I have to apply quite sparingly and with care so that it won't cake up. My skin is very dry so I use a moisturizer first ---esp. around my eyes. One thinig is for certain, no matter what your skin tone, MAC will have a color that works for you.
I wanted to like this, I really did. However, it made me look like I was wearing a mask AND it broke me out something awful. I did love how the spongy applicator thing had its own little space and little holes so it could breathe - unfortunately, I returned it.
I used to like this product when I was younger...maybe because my skin was oilier then. However, now I find that it makes my face look really chalky. I won't be buying this product again.
I really loved wearing this, which made it even more of a bummer when I figured out that it was causing my skin to breakout. The color was a perfect match, application was smooth (I used a brush), etc, etc. But when I quit using it (as an experiment), the breakouts went away as well. If you're not prone to that kind of problem, this is worth a try.
Love the coverage and consistency of this powder, either wet or dry. Not for people who want sheer coverage...
This foundation is fantastic. It is very easy to use, and feels really light going on. I am really fair, and struggle to find foundation shades light enough, and this came in a color that perfectly matches my skin. It does not transfer on to clothes or telephones, so I am finally no longer leaving a "mark" on anything I touch with my face. The coverage can be sheer to full, depending on how much you put on. The only downside to this is that you must put on moisturizer first, or else it does not go on smoothly. I got mine for $21, but it has lasted forever, so the price is reasonable.
This is the best foundation-that-is-a-powder that I've ever used. I've been using it for about 5 years now and I will never go back to liquid foundation or pressed powder. It gives really good coverage and really smooths out your complexion. It does wear out by the end of the work day (and you shine through), but if you simply re-apply over your shiny areas, the problem is solved and a re-application does not make you look cakey or overly made-up. The best product I own by far.
