Review of MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation by beautifuldreamer324
I really love this foundation. I gave it a 3 for price because it's pricier than I would like to pay for a foundation. (not as expensive as a lot of the high end brands- NARS, Chanel, Dior, Lancome, etc but not as a affordable as my Covergirl & Olay.) The coverage is fantastic, while still looking natural. I used to like the MAC Matchmaster for days when I want fuller coverage, but lately, that foundation has been looking cakey & like I'm wearing foundation (not a good look). I got a sample of this when I was at the big mall that has a MAC (45 min away) & I'm glad I got the sample. The MUA was very generous with the sample, it's lasted me over a week, and she matched me spot on. If it wasn't for her help, I would have ordered the incorrect shade (was going to get NC42, but I'm actually NW40). As soon as she saw me, she picked out NW40, and it was PERFECT. My friend who was shopping with me is brutally honest and will tell me if my makeup isn't right. She thought this was a great match & said it didn't even look like I had makeup on (YAY!! exactly what I was going for!). Covers everything. I don't need concealer with this. Doesn't look cakey. I really like the finish. It's not too matte, but it's not dewy either. Doesn't make me oily or cling to my dry patched. It feels very light on the skin, and the lasting power is fantastic. I usually put this on around 730am before work & at 11pm or so at night, it's still looking fresh. (I use Ponds makeup remover pads to take it off and then a cleanser.) I will purchase this when I finish the sample. Hope make doesnt discontinue this one.
update: 1/31/13- this photographs like a dream and covers really well, while still looking natural. doesn't look cakey and blends nicely. nw40 in this foundation is the best color match i've found in a foundation so far,
