I had gone back & forth for several weeks about getting this foundation. I finally did it. I had to ask the board what color they thought I'd be for NC20, since it's pretty much the dead of winter(that's the color I usually am this time of year). I was given several answers but I did my own research and came up with C2. I really have to add that I am NOT NC20 like I thought I was. I tried using my NC20 concealer and it is too light, and my NC30 is too dark. So I'm going to say I'm NC25 and I've pretty much been that for several months now. C2 is perfect. It's not pink nor is it yellow. It seems pretty neutral to me. I have never ever been a foundation wearer, I usually stick to msfn or mineral foundation. I am already in love with the way this looks on the skin. It's natural looking like a tinted moisturizer but covers just enough for me. What I've been doing lately is applying only concealer and msfn & the last few days only concealer. I have so many old acne marks or scars that haven't quite gone away that I end up putting concealer on so much of my face so I figured I'd give this a try. The product itself is very runny and when first applied I didn't see very much coverage. It did seem dewy and wet for a few minutes. When it dried, I reapplied. It gave me the perfect coverage while still looking natural and not cakey. After this dried I added msfn just to get rid of the dewy finish it left, being an oily skin person I do not want to look dewy. I did not have to add any concealer today whatsoever. For this being one of my first foundations, I'm very impressed. I used a Mac 188 to apply instead of my fingers. The one last thing I'd like to add is, I've had pretty bad acne inflicted skin for some time and only in the last 3 weeks has it improved greatly. I probably would never have used this when my skin was full of breakouts.

I really like this foundation for a everyday look when you don't need much cover and just want to look healthy. I have dry skin and it makes me look so much better... I shake well and put a little amount in my hands. I rub my hands and put on like I put my moisturizing cream just pressing into my skin. It looks amazing. I use in C3 and usually don't powder. When I do I use Mineralize Skin Finish or the Make Up For Ever HD High Definition Loose Powder to set the concealer. It goes really well with Select Cover-up and Select Moisturecover by MAC also.

I'm going to give this 4 lippies because it's really, really good if you want a light foundation/tinted moisturiser. DO NOT BUY THIS if you need a lot of coverage. I have pretty clear skin, the occasional tiny blemish and sometimes my complexion can be a little uneven or pale and in need of some oomph. Like most girls, I find it difficult to leave the house without my mask on. Even with clear skin, a bit of war paint goes a long way to help your confindence. I find this foundation perfect for my needs. Its thin and doesn't look like you are wearing make up. It is also a dewy finish so you look fresh. Yes, I will agree that sometimes it looks a bit sweaty but just swipe over your t zone and chin with some MAC blot powder or MAC loose translucent powder and it looks beautiful. I also take my blot powder with me for touch ups during the day. I have given up trying to find the foundation to last all day with no touch ups. For me, it is just a fact of life that my nose gets oily. A little maintenance during the day is not difficult. The smell is yummy but strange as I am used to the other MAC foundations that have no smell. It also is a plastic bottle so that is perfect for me as I drop things all the time. It takes a little bit of getting used to- the lesser coverage. But I have recieved so many compliments on how fresh I look, I'm happy to step it down a notch.It is also great for going out. I like to do fun eyes or really bright lips and sometimes with a thick foundation it really just looks like you are too done up. I don't want to look like I apply my makeup with a shovel.Price wise, this is amazing. 120mls for AUD$60? Hell yes. It will last about a year I think. Some people on here have said it lasts even longer.The only thing I am a little annoyed about is the colour I bought. I'm an NC20 and the MUA gave me an C4. I think it is too dark, but considering how thin it is, it kind of just washes on and blends well so its not so bad. Next time I will probably go for a C2 or C3. Its summer in Australia now so I am more tanned than normal. I was hungover when buying it and didn't take much notice so its more my fault and the MUA is probably just one of those people who are trying to make the world a more tan place, one person at a time.I use my 187 to put it on. Fingers don't work with this for me, it tends to stick to my dry patches. Everyone has a different way though so just find what works for you.No SPF takes the one lippie off. In Australia I should really have one and I am too lazy to ever apply one before make up everyday.Yay for Face and Body!

I find this foundation pretty pointless. I don't really think it deserves the label 'foundation', it gives practically no coverage , sort of like a lightly tinted moisturiser . It didn't cover the fading acne scars on my cheeks... or the stretch marks on my body (NC43) even after i put 3 layers on . And I find that it does transfer so it rubs off on clothes , the closest shade to me C5 is too grey for my golden undertones and dims my face down. I guess the nice thing about it is that it gives a sexy healthy sheen to the face and body, and it does give sheer coverage so it tones stuff down very very slightly. Overall, I'm quite underwhelmed. Update: It broke me out

4 lippy out of 5 because if you don't set it, it can look abit too dewy/sticky on bareface.My first time writing a review and i find it necessary because this is one foundation i'm never leaving.A bit of background information, i have Oily/Combi skin, i'm an asian guy, i have tan/honey coloured skin and i'm on C5 for this foundation.I only have 2 kinds of foundation at the moment and it's face & body from MAC(C5) and MUFE(#34). My skin condition is actually pretty good but i slap on abit of this foundation sometimes to even out my skin tone, and the colour i'm wearing gives me this golden flawless skin which i like alot.I've tried various application method and i think the most effective method for foundation is possibly this...1- Exfoliate your face2- Moisturize (I use Clinique's Dramatically Different Gel because it gives me oil control, my face gets REALLY oily mid day)3- Primer (I use MUFE's HD primer in 0. I'm not sure if it actually makes a difference but the MA from Sephora told me primers not only acts as a good canvas for foundation but they also creates a protection barrier for your skin *shrugs*)4- Shake your MAC F&B well and i pour it on my fingers, warm it up by rubbing and press them all over my face, blend it out with my fingers and let the heal melt them. I start from my face, work it out, then forehead, then neck.As much as this product is transfer proof, The oil from my face melts the product and if i'm not careful, i'll have to say byebye to my white collar shirt, so becareful.5- Sometimes, i wet a small piece of sponge and run it through my face, the water breaks down the foundation a little bit and blends it even better, but you can skip this step if you're lazy because it's always sheer enough.I only do 1 layer with this because 2nd layer gives me the fake tan look and i avoid it at all cost. Maybe if you're lighter skin tone you don't have to worry but if you're working on tanned colours, take extra care.Because this foundation gives a dewy look, i always set it with loose powder, i use the MAC's prep and prime transparent powder to set it, i used to buff it in but i noticed when i buff, it makes it look a little cakey sometimes, so i learned a new technique which is to press the kabuki into your face all over, when you think it's good enough, you buff ONLY SLIGHTLY to sweep away the excess powder.I have to emphasize i have oily skin so i tend to put a little more than normal, so again, take note.In an hour or two, the heat from my face starts melting the foundation and sometimes the oil from my face melts into the foundation and it gives me this slightly dewy and healthy look, so i'm kinda happy i have abit of oil on my face, just make sure you blot it once in a while so you dont look like you just survived a BP oil spill.I haven tried enough foundation to know if they is my holy grail or not but i'm more than happy to stick with MAC's F&B for a very very long time.If i were to compare the MAC's F&B to MUFE's F&B foundation, i'll have to say MAC's look more golden and healthy, while MUFE looks more natural and less shiny.I use both but i prefer MAC's for the golden healthy look!

Face and Body Foundation. Sheer to medium coverage. Buildable. Like most Mac foundations, tends to look a bit orange. I've got the lightest C1 shade and it's still looks too orange for my skin (I'm NC15 in winter). Another con- application. The formula is very runny, takes a long time to dry and soak into the skin. When dried looks good (except the dry areas, would not recommend it for dry skin), but until then it looks and feels too moist and unpleasant. Biggest Pro- Photographs well. You know that ghost-look you get when photographed at night with a flash? It usually happens to me with most of my other foundations because they have SPF in them (reflect light). No such problem with this foundation. It's a miracle. I wish it wasn't so orange and gross to apply...

I've been using this foundation as my every-day-foundation for maybe two months now. I have combination/acne prone skin. These are my thoughts: Okay, first of all, two months of every-day-use and still half of a bottle left = Value for money! Watery, wet & sticky, takes a long time to dry if you're in a hurry in the morning, it feels sticky on the skin. I find that the foundation looks GREAT on me for the 1st two-three hours. After that it just melts away, and you have to touch up with concealer when blemishes starts showing through. It didn't break me out, whichi s good! Good color range. Would by again, maybe not for an everyday-go-to-the-office-look since it justs melts away for me. But for a no-make-up-look-lunch or to the beach I would def. wear it :)

Love the natural fresh faced look this foundation gives me. I just spot conceal with my Studio Finish if I need extra coverage. My skin is generally very clear and this foundation does not cause any breakouts for me. I wear C4 and have medium tan skin with warm undertones, it matches perfect.

I have slightly dry skin during the winter and I don't need a lot of coverage, just something to even my skintone and act as a base for my blush. I've been wearing tinted moisturizer for years, but the formulation and color changed on my former HG TM from Bobbi Brown so I was on the hunt for something else. I tried MAC TM, but it was a matte finish and I prefer a dewey finish. I gave F&B a go and I love it! The formula is thinner, but I find this makes it easier to blend. Gives me just enough coverage and looks natural. It lasts all day. You can layer on 2 coats if you want more coverage. If you are looking for light coverage, give this a try! I'm asian with light-medium yellow undertones and the C3 was a great match (I normally wear NC30).
