I was looking for a liquid foundation with light to medium coverage that wasn't heavy but could last all day on my oily face. I heard lots of good things about MUFE Face & Body but the closest Sephora is a bit of a trek for me so I decided to give MAC Face & Body a shot since it also has relatively good reviews + the MAC store is much closer to me.
Overall, I really do love this product. My one complaint is that it is a little greasy for oily skin, but I always set w/a powder + blot & repowder during the day, so it's not something that's a huge deal for me, but I thought I'd throw it out there for others who might find it to be a concern. Other than that, it's a good product: lasts all day, even on my greasy face, light coverage that's great for evening out skin tone, and you get TONS of product for the price (averages out to $8/oz, which is cheaper than most drugstore foundations). Has not broken me out (I also make sure to use an oil-based makeup remover especially since this foundation is water resistant) and is very forgiving in terms of application; I've used brush & fingers and both methods yield a good result (brush gives slightly more coverage but I like using my fingers cuz I'm lazy). I also think it's been helping to soften & condition my skin as it's been feeling pretty nice since I've been using it. I use the shade C3 though it looks much darker in the bottle, since it's more sheer it's very forgiving in terms of blending into your own skin; it works very nicely to slightly add more color to my Asian skin tone as my face is a little lighter than my neck.
A great foundation if you're looking for light coverage that's long-lasting. If you're looking for something with heavier coverage, look somewhere else. I'm quite happy with this product and would repurchase.
I really wanted to love this stuff. I've tried all of MAC's foundations. Studio Fix is the worst. Mineralize satinfinish is still my fav from MAC. I prefer a dewy finish so that's why I thought would enjoy this. I found that it was way too watery, this is like a very sheer tinted moisturizer. I bought this in C4 (NC40 skintone) and it did nothing for me. You do get tons of product for your money, so for someone who likes this its such a good deal. Too bad for me I hated it. :( I will stick with MSF
If you tried MAC foundations before and they didn't work for you or broke you out then give MAC F&B a try!! I tried studio fix and MAC's powder foundations and they both broke me out but MAC F&B has never given me an issue with my skin. It gives the perfect dewy look.. it looks amazing! You get so much product for your money it's totally worth it! I got mine at a CCO for around $20 and i will definitely pay full price when i'm done with mine..i tried MUFE F&B before this and it was so gooey and felt gross on my face but MAC F&B is definitely HG for me and i recommend it to anyone that wants a light coverage foundation that looks natural and amazing in pictures.
This product is a hg foundation for makeup artists doing photoshoots and film work! It looks flawless on camera and goes great on anyones skin,its a very sheer formula but can be built up for higher coverage which is great!! MAC made a winner when they formulated this :) I will love this foundation forever!!
I generally dont like MAC foundation that much, my last 2 MAC foundation were some what average and expensive. I heard soo much rave about this foundation, I knew I wanted to try it, but I kept putting it off because I didnt want to travel to a MAC Pro store, or purchase online because of the freight cost. Eventually I did buy it online because MAC website had a free shipping offer.
I purhcased this in C3, the shade was an absolute perfect match to my skin, the bottle was huge and was easy to dispense the liquid, which I was happy because I was afraid I had to buy a pump for this as well.
The formula is very viscous, like water, easy to apply (dont ever use a sponge for this liquid, it's just soo runny that the sponge will soak up the foundation). I heard one youtuber saying that it smelt a bit funny after a while, I've had mine for a long time and its never smelt bad at all.
This foundation is soo light weighted that it feel like a tinted moisturiser, it is a light to medium coverage foundation. and yes it does look like skin, and it does photograph very well.
I had no problem with it on my skin, it did not turn oily around the T-Zone during the day. It had just a nice flawless dewy finish. I'm usually disappointed with MAC foundation they tend to rub off on everything, and dont last that long, but this one was fantastic in those aspect. All you need it a nice powder to set it and it will last about 6hrs no problem.
It is one if not only inexpensive foundation from MAC considering price and quantity, and I love it.
I was pretty disappointed with this product. I ordered it in pure white over the phone since that color is for Mac PRO only--the color was perfect, and honestly, it looks great when I apply it to my super-white legs and arms. But for some reason, it did terrible things with my face. Even after using a primer, this foundation would seem to highlight all the bumps, scars, flakes, and uneven texture in my skin. It did not look smooth at all no matter how I applied it (brushes, fingers, sponges). It was also a very watery consistency.
I gave it 2 lippies since I do sometimes use it to make my legs and arms look more even in color, and it works fine for that (although it is not great if you take a super close look; it sticks in creases and fine hairs). But I really regret buying it for my face :(
Let me start by saying, I have tried many foundations.... I usually opt for medium to the fuller coverage end of the scale, but lately, (since having a baby) I find that my skin has gone a bit strange, sometimes with flakey patches. All the other foundations I've used tend to accentuate this, and have gone a bit streaky.
My skin is pretty much bulletproof, I don't react to much at all (except Revlon PR) which is nice, so have had no adverse reaction from this.
I bought F&B about two years ago and hated it! But after reading more reviews on here, I decided to give it another go.
One word. LOVE.
It has the most wonderful finish, no streaks, just flawlessly melts into my skin. Two layers gives a low-medium coverage, but still shows my freckles, while hiding any blemishes or redness.
Definately use your fingers!!! Warm it up for a few seconds inbetween your palms, pat on, then blend in. I set it with MSFN in medium, and it stays on most of the day.
Wouldn't recommend for people that prefer full coverage, or very matte finishes (unless using lots of powder)
I'm very neutral (around n20-25), but have this in n3 and c3. Both melt in brilliantly!
I will buy this until I find something that can beat the love I have for F&B, not that I will be looking!!
I have been the hunt for a new foundation for months now. In college, I was a loyal user of powder foundations simply because of the ease of them. Then I became obsessed with all of the new mineral foundations. I liked those, however they are a pain in the rear to travel with, and the whole "buffing" powder into your face every morning lost its appeal. I also noticed, that sometimes it will begin to settle in fine lines. So I decided to go back to liquids... I was trying to find something that had buildable coverage, but still looked natural. I was going to try the MUFE F&B based on its glowing reviews, but the MAC store is so much easier to get to and this stuff is pretty cheap when you break it down price per ounce!
I was a little concerned b/c the SA kept emphasizing that is was "sheer" coverage, but I went for it anyhow and I'm so glad! I wore it today for the first time. Dotted on all over my face and then stippled/buffed with a flat stippling brush. Then I layered some additional over my freckles. Set with the Mac prep and prime and voila! I have to say, it looked even better after an hour or so. I love the fragrance of this and it did not oxidize on my face.
I will continue to use this week to make sure it doesn't break me out...but otherwise I'm very pleased with this product!!
I really like this foundation. I find that it's very similar to the MUFE F&B but has a slightly dewier finish and a much cheaper price tag (4oz bottle is huge!). It lasts all day on my normal/dry skin and looks incredibly natural. Unfortunately, I had to take off one lippie because the orange oil in this makes my skin a little irritated and sensitive, especially if I wear it for several consecutive days. However, it doesn't seem to do this to most people so I just may be more sensitive than most.
Edit: I jumped to conclusions too quickly! I thought, with Mac's reputation for irritating foundations, that this was causing a skin reaction. I was wrong--it was actually my sunscreen! I now wear this almost daily and LOVE it! I actually think that this is better than MUFE's, with more coverage, MUCH better price, and it is more buildable!
ok i can not believe i forgot to review this! i bought this maybe a month ago and i LOVE it. it's my HG foundation and i'm never trying another.
the price is amazing...think about it ... 32$/4 is 8.5$ per ounce.. that's cheaper than drugstore foundations (at least the good ones)
it's so lightweight and actually covers! i have acne scarring that it covers beautifully! it stays on REALLY well with sweat and water. i sweat so much one night dancing and it was still on!!! you can do one or two layers.. it is dewy but sometimes i take an oil blotting sheet before i powder and just press it into my skin and then powder and it's perfect!
LOVE LOVE LOVE
