So today is my first day wearing this product. Originally, I was matched as a NC25 in the Studio Fix Powder+, but when I went today, that color just looked way too dark and mask-like. The MUA matched me to NW10, which is a brand new color in Studio Fix Fluid. It's a flawless match, and with a little bronzer, could be darked to fit my summer color if I get any, lol. I could always dust the NC25 Powder+ over top as well. Anyway, when the MUA first applied this, I was a little skeptical. It looked super patchy and ill-blended but as she swirled the stippling brush around, it looked more and more flawless and natural. This is definitely a matte foundation, which I love. I still set it with a translucent powder though because I tend to get oily around my nose and chin, and also to add to the longevity of the foundation. I always use Rimmel's Stay Matte, because I honestly haven't found anything that's better than it. If you're on the drier side, I would recommend exfoliating before using this foundation, but I could really see this product working for any skin type. It has really lasted on me, and I added a bit of bronzer to contour it and it looks amazing. The first MAC foundation I ever tried was the Face & Body, which broke me out horribly. I'm really hoping this doesn't do that as well, but I'll add an update in a couple weeks. EDIT: This breaks out my face! I've started only using it in my eye area when I'm looking super tired. It blends out perfectly so you can't even tell that I only apply it there. I wish so badly that I could use it all over! Honestly, I can't even use it enough that it would be worth repurchasing at this point. I would probably return it if I still had the receipt. EDIT: Got a cyst under my EYE! I NEVER get anything like that there! I was so appalled that I gave this stuff away. I wouldn't ever, EVER repurchase! I'm so sad that this didn't work for me. It made my skin look beautiful!
