I have a pretty even skin tone, and was looking for something that would add just the right amount of pigmentation and moisture to the face for a flawless finish. This product evens out my skin and adds a good amount of moisture. During winter, I use another moisturizer on my face before using this, since my skin gets really dry during those months. I usually use a setting powder over this. I am on my third tube of this product and use this for my everyday makeup.
I quite like this "foundation" it blends with any brush, and its very creamy! but i find it dosent stay on very long, when i touch my face, it comes off! but i do like that its light and i mix it with my studio fix fluid to make it lighter, and it works great!
I have normal to dry skin. I like this product because it blends to a natural finish. It provides a light coverage so it evens out some of my redness around my nose and somewhat covers my under eye circles. However, it does not do anything for my hyper pigmentation on my cheeks. Overall, though I think it's a good product, because it looks natural on my skin and it's hydrating. However, be aware that it will leave a shiny finish b/c it has SPF in the product. However, I deal with that by using the Mac Prep + Prime finishing powder to "set" the foundation after I've applied it and that takes care of the shine problem.
This product isn't working for me. It's coverage is really poor, so I can't use it as a foundation alone. It does even out the skin, but not if you have blemishes. This will probably fit only someone who has a perfect skin.
I found a different way to use it: I mix it with my liquid foundation to make my foundation lighter, that's the only way it works for me...
I hated the smell! I don't understand how a company like MAC sells a product that smells so bad....
I did like the packaging for I love tubes :)
I would totally save the money and won't spend it on this product again, Sorry!
I thought this was an ok tinted moisturizer. It came out quite orange on me though which for what I paid is not what I want!! But it had a good consistency, it was creamy and blend able!! Overall I liked it okay until I found out that MAC HAS STARTED TESTS THEIR PRODUCTS ON ANIMALS so I threw it away I will not support animal cruelty.
MAC has done it again! I love this product I normally have a problem with tinted moisturizers because they tend to make my skin look greasy, very oily,and at times sticky. I was extremely satisfied with this product it was very light clean feeling, hydrating, and it looked very natural to my skin i was a little expensive but it was worth it and I will be buying again!
Ok so i dont use Mac foundations because i can never get the correct colour. So i opted for this since my skin was looking pretty decent. Wow! I love it! really good stuff. Its moisturising and has decent coverage to even out your skin colour the sahe is perfect for me and it looks like my skin!
I had to take off a lippie because it does nothing for my oily skin, i often have to blot...well its a moisturizer..i dint expect it to stop oil. Still hoping i can find one with this coverage but oil absorbing properties
The consistency is nice and the coverage is ok. I got this in medium, the color that the salesperson recommended, and it was way to dark I looked like I had a bad tan. I might consider repurchasing this product in a different color but I just don't know.
For a tinted moisturizer this has decent coverage, its not a foundation so more than that cannot be expected. So when I need something for no fuss for errands or a short time, this is it. It evens out my skin nicely and even though I have combo skin does not get oily very quickly without powder. I will however not be buying this again. I realized that tinted moisturizers are just not for me, but that is at no fault of this product. The reason I only gave it 3 lippies is because for 30 dollars this is just too average. Mac has a few foundations that are cheaper than this and are more worth the price. Not to mention other products and even other mid-range brands that are more worth spending 30 bucks. If I do decide to buy another t.m it will probably be from the drugstore and will probably be just as good. It also has a slight scent that I can still smell even after a few hours in. It is nothing offensive and I don't mind, but I know that some people out there are more sensitive to scents.
well first of all i was looking for a tinted moisturiser as i was fed up of how foundations felt on my skin and wanted something light and natural that would just add abit of colour. After using bobbi brown as a foundation i thought i would try a different brand for the moisturiser. First of all i wasnt too sure about colour and there isnt a MAC counter where i live so i searched online for the sort of colour i would be in MAC, in bobbi brown long lasting foundation i am cool beige 3.25 so i worked out i would be a NW30 in MAC which would make me a medium. I didn't want to buy a full brand new tube in-case it was the wrong shade for me and to test the texture and feeling on my skin so i searched ebay to see if anyone was selling. When it arrived i was impressed with the packaging and the tube was really easy to use as well. The first day i used it i didnt put any normal moisturiser on just the moisture tint, firstly i found that it was quite drying going on my skin, felt like how a foundation feels going on the skin. However after applying it, it didnt feel like a foundation at all, quite light and not at all sticky i didnt feel like i had anything on my skin but gave me the colour and nice looking glow which i wanted. lasted quite a few hours and was well impressed. I didnt have to use much at all for my whole face so i am pretty sure it would last a while as well. However next time i will definitely be putting on my normal moisturiser then putting this on, as i feel its too drying by its self. Really nice natural looking product and will definitely buy again :-) correct colour match aswell. With the added SPF i know its protecting my skin at the same time.
