Mac Face & Body should be a foundation that I don't like, and that's the reason I kept away from purchasing it for so long. However, I wanted to try out a lighter base for spring/summer so purchased this in the N1 shade. This was a tad light for me so I moved to the shade N2 which is a much better match for my skin tone. But I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by this foundation. Granted it would be absolutely perfect for someone with great skin.....however I have redness, a few blemishes and very dark circles. BUT, I can still make it work and Iove using this just to even out my skin tone if I'm popping to the shops, or even if I just want a light foundation to wear indoors. It is quite a runny liquid foundation and is very sheer, and for me personally I need to use two or three layers to get it to adequately cover my redness. If you are looking for medium to full coverage this is not for you, but it can be built up to a medium finish. I like to apply one layer, let it dry and them pay on a second layer, the patting motion helps to get a bit more coverage on the areas if the face that need it. Staying power is good and of course I've got to mention the value for money - the 120ml bottle is so much better value than the 50ml bottle and there's only $6 in the difference. I will continue to use f&b on days when I just want a little coverage, however Mac Studio Sculpt remains my favourite foundation.
