I reviewed this a couple of years ago, cant remember why i stopped using it but in retrospect its the only one that works for me. Mac sff is not for everyone. It has to be respected & used with care. Get the color right, apply it carefully and it can look stunning. Get it the color wrong, apply heavily and you will look like a bad drag queen.

Cons:
. oxidises
. transfers (only slightly)
. smells very industrial
. doesnt come with a pump
. contains silicone which can block pores
. some blotting mabe required
. can look greasy if worn for a prolonged period (10+ hrs)

Pros:
. phenomenal coverage
. stays in place
. smooths skins appearance
. doesnt accentuate fine lines
. easy to blend
. conditions skin
. oil free
. photographs well
. doesnt fade, go patchy or cake

I use a standard brush to apply, a primer and only blot when absolutely necessary. Having tried NC42, 37, 35 & 30, Im an NC30 and use NC37 when im tanned.. I find NC37 is more golden and a better color than NC35. I think my foundation search is over:)
