I normally wear Mac Select Spf 15 foundation in NC42 & I love it, but have been looking for a cheaper alternative. I was shade matched by a Mary Kay consultant today & I wear Beige 8. I don't know what's in this stuff, but it looks flawless & matched me perfectly. I was shocked. It really does control shine pretty well & I love the fact that it has anti aging ingredients & is fragrance free. My skin looks natural & the foundation doesn't start to melt off after a while like other brands do. The only con is that it doesn't have spf, but that's not a dealbreaker. I will be purchasing this after my Mac runs out. It's $7 cheaper.
