Amazing!! Best ever!!
I guess the thing with all foundations is they depend on your skin type and colour. Different brands specialise in different areas, but for me as a quite pale combination skin person, this is the best foundation! I don't need a lot of coverage as my skin is really clear but as a full coverage foundation, it really does the job and makes my skin FLAWLESS! If I do get the occasional spot, you can count on this to make it unnoticed. Its thick to apply so I use it gradually and build it up and I find it goes a long way. I found doublewear made my skin appear really oily and greasy when it's naturally matte and clear, but this product dries matte/dewy.
I also use the mineralize powder and prep+prime and I get compliments constantly and asked what I use, the only downside to this product is it smells really strong of wall paint while you are applying it, but its not poignant when dry.
This is my holy grail foundation, I love the consistency and the coverage and have found the perfect way to get a flawless finish is with a beauty blender. I'm NC25 and find it matches my skin perfectly, it lasts all day and I can wear with or without primer depending on the finish I am after. I like that the foundation is buildable. My skin is fine and does not breakout with this foundation, I make sure at night I have a strict cleansing routine to take it off. The only negatives I feel are the bottle does not have a pump to get the product out and it is hard to control the amount that comes out, but can be easy fixed by purchasing a pump and the smell of the foundation is a wee bit odd. Overall great foundation if your looking for full coverage and buildable and it is well priced and worth it as a bottle lasts me about 5 months.
this foundation works well on me.
im asian and i use nc25
its a bit orange-gy if i put another layer but overall it does the job.
it has good coverage and i just LOVE MAC products.
First off you need to purchase the pump separately, because if not you are going to be there minutes and minutes trying to get some product out. Also, it says its full cover that's a lie unless you keep layering and layering foundation which will look all cakey. I got the color NW15 which is the lightest shade in most stores and it made my face look like an ompa loompa (I know they have NW10). Would not reccomend at all, and of course as everyone knows including myself MAC foundations causes breakouts!!
Now, first off. I hate foundation, a lot. Liquid foundation I mean. But for certain times, I am required to wear it. This is an extremely full coverage foundation. My colour is NC37. Usually if I can get away with doing my own makeup, I do. I bought this for photoshoots because I wanted something full coverage and matte. This is what was recommended and for photoshoots it's great. Matches my skin tone perfectly and I use it with a stippling brush and studio fix concealer.
Use a very small amount and then spot treat areas that need more attention because this will cake up. It is extremely thick.
I hate the packaging, I have a hard time getting a good amount out of the bottle and tend to get too much out. It also smells of paint which is nasty. But the finish is matte and it looks great in photos... So for special occasions I use this, however way too thick for everyday usage.
I purchased this foundation due to recommendations that it would be great for my combination to oily skin. It is a little pricey but what do you expect from Mac. The packaging isn't the greatest as it doesn't come with a pump (I purchased a pump which cost an extra Â£5). I was really pleased with first impressions. It applied to the skin seamlessly and blended really well and left a flawless finish. My colour match was perfect - NC15. Throughout the day I found it made my skin quite oily so I had to keep powdering which made it very cakey. I'd suggest that it's good for short term wear but for a full day, definitely not. After a few days, I found it caused my skin to also break out. I haven't used it since and feel like it was a waste of money. I probably won't repurchase this.
I used to love this stuff. Then I tried the maybelline superstay 24 hour makeup. They're definitely similar, but the maybelline has better coverage and lasting power, and is easier to blend for sure. The mac claims to mattify but honestly it just used to slip on my oily areas. I'd definitely recommend trying the maybelline foundation if you're looking for a cheaper dupe and something matte, full coverage and long lasting. I honestly don't see the hype behind mac foundations besides face and body anymore. For the price you can get MUCH better foundations.
At first I loved this product. I switched from Studio Tech(more of a creamy pressed foundation) back to a liquid again (I'm so dry I feel like I NEED a liquid foundation). I feel like MAC really truly doesn't have a full coverage foundation. After asking the MAC employees what else they liked besides Studio Tech they recommended this for me... It's nice and all, but medium coverage. If you are really looking for a FULL coverage foundation this wouldn't be it. It works pretty nice for someone with DRY skin like mine meaning it doesn't seperate in patches or flake off or anything like that. I mean I used this foundation when I really neglected my skin, without cleansing, toning, or moisturizing and it still looked good on. It also stays on pretty good throughout the day. The only real complaint I'd have is that it isn't enough coverage for me. It's nothing special, just looks like a normal foundation that won't give you that flawless finish.
Ok so you smell like twink or nail polish remover and you don't have a pump which is a pain considering how messy you get. But you're not all bad and I actually quite like you.
NC15 is yellow based and a good match for my NC15 skin :) funny that. I like you best applied with a damp beauty blender or RT sponge as you tend to get a bit carried away on me with a brush and look like more coverage than I really want. With the Blender I get a lighter/medium coverage with skin still showing. You really only cope and stay nice looking on me anyway with a minimal layer of loose and or finishing powder applied carefully with a light and small brush - otherwise I find you get a bit cakey looking if powder is flung at you too liberally.
Oh and you do last all day and my skin has never broken out from using you - but as there are so many foundations out there to try I'm unsure if I'm going to repurchase you when you are all gone.......
It's not that this foundation is bad but after using kat von d I would prefer it over mac.
I guess you could say mac is over hyped. I've heard about it for a long time and always wanted to try it but didn't want to spend the money so finally I decided to get a sample the other day but first the lady working at Dillard's in the makeup department put it on one side of my face and kat Von d was on the other side of my face and I liked the way kat Von d covered better. She did tell me it was build able and I haven't true building it yet because I was trying to make my sample last but with one layer it gives me a natural look but doesn't cover all my blemishes the first time like kat Von d does. I don't have acne really just a few scars from having acne when I was younger. If I had never tried the kat Von d I would probably say the mac was worth buying again.
