I was very excited because I wanted something that would occasionally make my skin tone more even. Unfortunately, this doesn't work. The color makes my face look yellow, and it's also very shiny and fake-looking. I tried to give it a chance, but it never ended up performing better.
There isn't anything I don't love about this Foundation. Okay, well maybe one. Sometimes I think the citrus-y smell irritates my eyes.
If you have good skin this is amazing for you! It just looks like your skin, but perfected! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
I love that this leaves a nice glaze to the skin, without containing any shimmer particles of anything of the sorts.
you get so much for your money also. It's perfect for photos and everyday, although when I want my skin to make a statement I reach for the Graftobian HD cream foundation. Another AMAZING foundation!
I was so excited when I heard about this. I heard it was very comparable to my HG MUFE Face and Body, plus it is cheaper and comes with more product. But boy am I disappointed. The finish it leaves on my skin is horrible, so shiny. It is very sticky to the touch once applied. It gets thick quite fast when working with fingers so you need to blend faster. Also, it smells very strange, similar to coca cola possibly? With so many great reviews I really had high hopes! That all being said, packaging is great wow! But my skin has just never agreed with MAC products. Sigh! Back to my HG.
I absolutely love this product. You get alot for you $$ and the packaging is great. It takes some getting used to the watery consistency but I find just using a bit and layering is the best way to put it on. I use my fingers as opposed to a foundation brush, I find it easier. I have C2 as my everyday colour and then I have C5 to mix in with it during summer. I have had my bottles since February 2010 and I still have heaps left in the C2 bottle (loads in the C5 because it is only when I have colour). I am prone to breakouts and because this is water based, I don't have any issues. I only use this for my everyday product (i.e. shops, work) and use a heavier one for going out.
I really really wanted to love this product - and I did for about 2 days. Unfortunately it totally broke me out, which rarely ever happens to me.
I did try my luck again after about one month, just to make sure the break out was really due to this. Unfortunately, exactly the same thing happened all over again: red rash all over my face.
If you want to give this a try, make sure to get a sample first to check if your skin can take it. I'm still looking for my HG foundation, currently Lancome Teint Miracle seems to come really close!
I'm about a nc 40-42 and c5 is an good match.The formula is water base so its very runny. It has a sheer to medium coverage with a very dewy finish. I have very oily skin so I have to set this with a powder to avoid looking greasy. This last a long time on my skin.
I like this foundation a lot. It is very natural looking.
I have this foundation in shade N1 and it is a good match for my skintone.
You get alot of product for your money with Face and Body, the packaging is also practical and hygenic, although hardly sleek and chic.
As with all MAC products there is a decent colour range and you should be able to find a match for most skintones however as for this product being sutible for all skin types I'm not so sure.
I have dry-combination skin and this still leaves me looking more sweaty-just been to the gym-finish than a dewy one. This can be solved with a bit of powder however I do like the finish once it settles and it's my go-to for summer.
This gives a sheer,natural coverage but covers my redness pretty well and can be built up without looking cakey.The lasting power of this foundation is decent, with powder and a few touch ups it will last you all day but that involves extra effort.
The price is good, the packaging could do with being a tad nicer and the foundation itself is pretty good so this is a repurchase for me!
I want to love this foundation! The only problem is that it just seems to create a huge shine issue throughout the day. I'm going to change up my skin routine and see if that is what is causing the issues. It is a perfect match for my skin (N1).
I really like this foundation. It's light & fairly sheer & looks very natural, which is exactly what I was after. I think you need to be fairly quick about spreading it around so that it doesn't start to set before you're finished. You could layer it for more coverage. I find that I can blot after it's set & get away without powder other than just on my nose. It's being so sheer makes for some forgiveness with the colour match, which I found difficult to make. In the end, I bought this in N1 & also in white so I could mix them together for a perfect match. The bottle is generously sized, so I put some in a smaller bottle & keep the remainder in the fridge until I need to mix a new batch. Would purchase again.
This is perfect if you:
-are looking for a natural finish
-do not want a thick layer of makeup on your skin
-have slightly dry skin (i wouldn't recoomend it to anyone with oily skin unless you use powder over it)
-need coverage but have relatively clear skin
This product is so versatile , which is why i love it. It looks AMAZING if you use a primer underneath it, and will definitely last you a good 8 hours if applied correctly. I find it works best when i use my fingers to rub it in. The texture is very liquid, which makes it easy to get all the small areas on your face (close to ears, around eyes etc)
I usually just brush some bronzer over it and some blush (NARS angelika--prettiest color for many skin tones) and i'm good to go! It gives you that look of just having washed your face and moistuized w/o having put on a foundation mask, and i always get tons of compliments when i wear it.
You can use it on your décolleté, and on your shoulders as well. For going out in the evening, this will give your skin a beautiful even glow that lasts! I bought this a slightly darker shade than my skin, because the blending qualities allow it to be used as a bronzer. If you are like me and can pull of only a very light tan, this is a good idea. It is easy to control how much you put on, and will not leave stains on clothing/boyfriends' shirt (haha).
Also very good: comes in a HUGE bottle (it really is a LOT of makeup) and ive had mine for well over a year now and im about 2/3 through it...and ive used it pretty consistently.
VERY GOOD SUMMER PRODUCT!! If you are going to the beach--this is a must-have! Foundation is an absolute nightmare in humid weather and if youll be in the water its such a sticky mess. This will give you color and will stay relatively well as long as youre not swimming laps of course :)
Basically, this is a staple of mine, and is also good for first time foundation users as it is so easy to use !
