Review by Mellymoomar
I really love this foundation for a few reasons. Mainly, I love the fact it gives really good full coverage with a nice finish to it and literally with or without a primer will be there all day. I also love the packaging as it comes in a tube which I find a lot more hygienic and easier to get the right amount rather than some bottles when you end up with far too much. Also, the consistency of the product is really nice, quite thick, and like most people have said in their reviews a gel like substance. I have dry skin so its really good for me, it gives me a nice sheer glow to my face, though I could see this for oily skin being slightly problematic. The only thing that stops this foundation from getting top marks for me is that the shade of the foundation isn't too good. I'm and NC15 in all mac foundations and normally thats fine but this one goes on too dark for my skin. My face literally looks a different colour to my neck when first applied! It looks quite yellow toned to start with then suddenly starts to look orange. I have to really buff it in with my brush before it starts to lighten up. I normally solve this by using a few pumps of Soap & Glory Hocus Focus and buffing in a really pale setting powder and it seems to do the trick. But still, its a hassle having to do that just for the sake of flawless, full coverage foundation, but it is worth it because it looks good. Overall, I'd definitely buy this again, because it is my most favourite foundation, but if you're pale expect it to be hard work getting it to look natural!
