This was a lovely shade on me, and the price wasn't too bad for a big bottle though it annoys me that you have to buy the pump too.Basically when it went on my dry, NW15, sensitive skin at the counter it looked lovely, but the next day when I applied it at home it went cakey on my driest areas. (I was using a light dusting of the sheer powder on the top)The second day I thought in the morning my skin looked inflamed and was starting to break out...about 2 hours after putting the foundation on I have an itching, stinging face and the foundation has gone into clumps making it REALLY obvious I have makeup on....I'm very disappointed as my friends rave about MAC but it does not suit sensitive skin, the MA told me this was the most "skin kind" foundation they do so I won't be trying the others :(

I've been a user of StudioFix powder foundation in NC50 for years (perfect colour match for me), so I thought I'd give this new liquid version a try. This provides pretty heavy coverage - I didn't even need any concealer on scars and spots. I even used this on my dark undereye circles and it covered perfectly and didn't irritate eyes or settle in fine lines. (I'd suggest the Studiofix powder foundation if you're looking for sheerer coverage) Wonderful dewy finish, and good oil-control too - my skin stayed matte for over half the day, which is a miracle for me. Does not turn white upon contact with sweat or water, and lasts well all day. Much as I love this foundation, it's going back because there isn't a right colour match for me - NC50 was too dark, and the next shade NC45 was too pale. continued >>

I didn't get any redness or pimples from using this foundation. I don't love it or hate it, it's just ok. I mean, it does what it needs to. I usually mix two drops of NC40 with a skin brightening moisturizer to make my own tinted moisturizer. That gives rather light coverage. Then if I have other redness around my nose or cheeks still, I go over that with a Bobbi Brown foundation stick, and powder. I use it because I bought it- and will continue to use it until it's gone.

I thought this foundation was excellent. The color blends very well into your skin and leaves it looking flawless!. It does provide heavy/full coverage if you put more than one layer. My skin is acne-prone and senstive , however this did not break me out at all. ref.Nc42

This is a lower than average water-based foundation. The colour selection is good like all MAC foundations. This doesn't cover the pores and highlights all the flakes. It also oxidises a little bit as well. If this were a drugstore foundation, I would have given 2 but since this is moderately expensive I only give a 1.

recently i've been noticing more blemishes and imperfections to my skin and so i decided i needed to try some foundations. i have medium asian-toned skin so i had a hard time at the drug store finding the right color (the majority of shades are pink toned and less yellow toned) so i decided to take a trip to macy's and find a match. the ma matched me up with nc40 which was a perfect match and i was so happy that i purchased that as well as the studio fix powder in c3 and studio finish concealer in nw25.however, as i took off the makeup with the alcohol towelettes, my face started burning..and ever since then when i tried the makeup on at home i would get that same burning sensation and noticed eczema-like flakiness, bumpiness and redness all over my face. i purchased last thursday and my face is still recovering from this :(i was so sad because the colors were so dead on but i think i'm allergic to something in the makeup. i have been looking into physician's formula mineral powder foundation and will let you know how that goes :)

I wanted to try a foundation from MAC. the sales man chose this for me. the coverage was VERY nice and it made me look FLAWLESS. HOWEVER, i wore it today and when i took it off with cleanser, my face was all red and my pimples were HUGE. [my pimples haven't ever gone that big in a long time] so i just returned it today.

I was having troubles, or what i thought were troubles with my Studio Tech foundation, and becuase of the great return policy, i exchanged my foundation for the Select SPF 15. Originally i wanted the Studio Fix Liquid foundation, but the MA said it would be too dark on my skin. So she suggested the Select SPF. In the store it look alright, it didn't seem to give as much of coverage as the Tech did, but i decided to go ahead and exchaknge it. What a mistake. After walking around for a while i realised that in the mirror i look totally darker. I asked my mother if she thought it looked darker, but she said it didn't. When i was in our car, i looked in the mirror and realised the foundation was orange. It didn't match my skin at all. I put some foundation on the inside of my arm and it was bright orange. I then realised the MA gave me NW 20, when with Tech i was a NW 15. We went back and i got the NW 15, and got a refund for the Nw 20. Now it is the morning after and it stills looks bad as ever. It is orange and thick, it dosen't dry and wipes off way to easily. I will not buy this product again. I will go back with the Studio Tech.

Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium, Not Sure
My Skin Type: Fairly Dry, Sensitive, Not too acne prone.I bought this product earlier this week because I was looking for a foundation that would even out my skin. The MA put it on my skin..and I liked the natural look of it...UNTIL later that night. My face was itchy and really dry from this product. However, MAC has a wonderful return policy...which allowed me to return it. I ended up exchanging it for MAC's Moistureblend Creme compact. I really love that product a LOT more.

Now foundation is one of those products I tell people they shouldn’t scrimp on and if you’ve got bad skin like I have, you should definitely invest in a good quality foundation. The theory goes that if you apply a good base well, the rest of your face will look great, but if you apply a lower quality base, the rest of your make up will not do as well. This foundation is great, it looks natural but gives me good coverage as well, it leaves my skin tone more even and feels soft to the touch. It lasts all day while I’m at work and when reapplied for the evening still looks fresh (even if I don’t feel it!) after 5 hours of partying! And now when you buy it, you are offered the option of having an attachable pump for easier application, which I would definitely recommend you buy as it’s easier to control the amount you apply to your face (one squirt is enough for me), the bottle lasts longer (a good three months, depending on how often you apply, I use it everyday and twice on weekends, so a lot!) and with the added bonus of SPF 15 protection, you’re skin will thank you for buy this product!
