I love this foundation for special occasions. It's more of a full coverage foundation. I have combination skin so I make sure to wash my face and moisturize well before applying it. I also always use a primer, the one I'm using now is The Porefessional by Benefit (I'm sure any other primer will do) and on top of everything a matte translucent powder with setting spray. This leaves me with flawless looking skin and it matches my skin tone very well. It looks great in pictures and it doesn't make my face look so cakey. That's what I love about this foundation. I am now on my 3rd bottle

This was my first MAC foundation and possibly the last. It gives a natural finish to the skin, somewhat in between glowy and matte.
I have dry to combination skin and if i dont moisturize my face well, this foundation does cling to dry patches on my face. If you have oily skin i suggest that you set with your favourite powder on top of this foundation so it will stay longer.

This foundation has a medium to buildable coverage and with just one layer it covered about 90% of the blemishes on my face which is fantastic! However, although it is buildable, i noticed that after the second layer my face starts to look cakey and i looked like i have 10kg of foundation on my face so not good.
This foundation also feels heavy on the skin, if you're someone who is uncomfortable with this then dont buy! It is one of the reasons why i dont really favour this foundation. It has a thick consistency and i like foundations with a thinner and more runny texture.
Despite all that, this foundation does live up to its name, it lasted more than 10 hours on my face! The finish that it gave on my skin after a few hours is also beautiful, very natural skin like finish.
Before i forget, you have to work fast with this foundation, it dries up easily so you have to blend in quick or else you have dried patches of the foundation on your face which will not look flattering at all!

A good medium-full coverage foundation that wears well throughout the day. Very similar to Estee Lauder's Double Wear, though this has a much thicker and creamier consistency. This foundation does not look natural though, even with one layer it tends to emphasize pores and fine lines, though this tends to be the case for most matte foundations. It might be good for events or photos, but personally I find it too heavy for everyday use.

I really wanted to love this foundation, especially since it's hard to find a good match to my olive/yellow skin tone. After about a few months of using this product I realized that I kept getting small rash like breakouts all over my forehead, keep in mind that I am currently using prescription acne cream. After I stopped using this foundation all my breakouts cleared up!

This foundation is a perfect no fuss foundation that lasts long, looks natural, and not too heavy. And MAC colors are to die for people of all shades. I wear NC44 in this foundation, I use the Sonia Kashuk flat top multipurpose foundation brush and I wear the Smashbox pore minimizing primer - believe me, you will get 12+ hours of wear with this foundation with the right pairing of other products. It will NOT feel heavy or tight on your skin like you are wearing a mask. I wear the MAC studio moisture face moisturizer underneath it too because it improves the wear and look of your foundation.

It's ALL about layering ladies and gents and it stays on ALL day. I work 10 hour days and come home and walk my dog and take off my makeup by the time that happens, I've had the foundation on for 12 hours and I don't feel disgusting at the end either. Most of the time, when I wear makeup, I literally wanna run home and wash the crap out of my face. Not with this, it's so wearable and durable...LOVE!

This foundation and I have a love hate relationship. I used to wear this all throughout high school. I used to model and this is what they would always put on me. Looking back it was a little heavy. I recently went back to using it and it looked AMAZING. This foundation does not break me out which means something. I was at Dillard's a few moths ago heading to purchase this foundation and stumbled into the Estee Lauder area looking at Kendall Jenners new lipsticks. Anyway the girl started talking to me telling me that a lot of the girls at MAC wear the Double Wear and she put a sample on. This is when I fell in love with Double Wear. It is a little fuller coverage than the MAC and looks more natural in my opinion.

Love this foundation! It's long-lasting, has a very good coverage and stays in my t-zone. The price is okay, and the foundation doesn't break me out.

Not my top top top favorite but I like this foundation. Its a little hard to find my true match, oddly. Everytime I've gotten matched it's an NC30, I think it does a bit of oxidizing so I'd rather get an NC20-NC25. This foundation is pretty fluid but has good coverage thats buildable.

For reference i am NC15 which is still a touch too dark, but easy enough to lighten with concealer. This is the only foundation Ive ever worn that actually stays in place on my oily t-zone. It in no way keeps me matte but once i blot and reappply powder i'm good to go. If there is a foundation out there that helps with oil control i have yet to find it. It is quite heavy (not as heavy as EL double wear) and i find if i don't wash my face properly after wearing it i will get a pimple or 2 on my chin but i can live with that. It's not perfect, but it's the best I've found

I had high hopes for this foundation. However, I wouldn't consider this foundation full coverage. I purchased color NC25 from their online website for about $33 before tax & shipping. It is a buildable product, but it took me about 2-3 layers to achieve the coverage I wanted. And i found that rather inconvenient. The shade i bought is nice but i was really disappointed with the coverage even though it does last m all day. I'll give it that, it can stay on through a lot of what everyday throws at you and a nice shade selection. Overall i'll recommend it to a friend only if they want medium coverage though.
