Hair: Black, Relaxed, Fine
Shade: NC20Application method: dry makeup spongeSetting powder: Addiction by Ayako's loose powder compact (Medium) or Prep + Prime pressed powderPros:-colour is more neutral and not as yellow as Studio Fix, so it suited my skin tone very well-great coverage-little scent (if any)-glass bottle (nicer than plastic, I suppose)-Hasn't broken me out (Mac's MSF Natural breaks me out)-Lasts throughout a workday Cons:-heavy jar for travel (solution: I use a contact lense case and fill that with foundation)-drying and sometimes makes my face patchy with dry skin/streaky foundation (solution: better moisturising skincare regime)

I am just generally not a fan of MAC products as I don't feel they have lived up to the hype when I actually buy and use them. This foundation is reminiscent of Revlon ColorStay (which is about a third the price), but is definitely a big more full-coverage. The problem I've had with this foundation is that it doesn't blend nicely enough in the skin (could it be the SPF? not sure) to make it look "flawless" despite all the different application techniques I've tried. It always looks very "masky" which is NOT a look I aspire to.I know many people swear by MAC but I just don't find it to be a worthwhile investment, at least with regard to the products I've tried. I prefer more natural products (both in look and in formulation). I doubt I'll go into a MAC store again for any kind of concealer or foundation product.

Got a sample of this last week. Tried it just to see if it's worth the splurge. Nope! The quality is lesser than Revlon Colorstay foundation. It stinks into my pores and doesn't cover anything. Makes my skin looked worse than without any foundation. I had to wash it off. I don't know about the staying power but I won't find out because it can't stand this foundation. For a $30 foundation, I expected more. I am going to stick with my colorstay foundation.

I have a very oily and sensitive skin, with dry patches. This foundation oxidises within minutes of being put, dries to a very matte unnatural finish and wears off in patches (T zone). It gets darker as the day goes by, emphasises dry patches. Very difficult to put on, works only with a beauty blender for me (tried all sorts of brushes) or with hands, but you have to work very fast as it dries quickly. Overall, not impressed. I will stick to my ELDW and diorskin forever.

Was really surprised how much I like this foundation. It's like a light version of double wear. It would be drying for dry skin, but great for my combination skin in the summer. Runs dark. I am usually NC30 but actually got NC15.

When I got a replacement Mac Powerpoint eyeliner yesterday the MUA suggested a new blush for me -- Mineralize in Warm Soul. Love it! I was so happy I thought maybe I'd try their long-wear foundation to replace mine. I've used Dior Forever forever, but thought maybe I could do better...Hah! When I got home and looked at my face in my 7X mirror, the Mac foundation was in tracks all over my face. The next day, I tried to carefully apply it myself. Same experience. If you want flawless, long-wearing foundation, go for the Dior Forever Fusion Wear. It's amazing.

Okay coverage, okay lasting power.Just okay, NC colors are too orangey. What just cause you're warm toned means you're an oompa loompa?Next.

Errggggghhh. I usually always complain that foundations never last all day or '24 hours' as they say they do, although this did stay all day. It stayed all day but didn't look as freshly applied as it did when I first put it on (obviously this is understandable).I purchased this in NC25 because I had been previously matched in NC30 and found this too dark. NC25 matched my tone, it just had a HORRIBLE orange sort of tinge to it.It's also very thick so it tents to bring out the pores around and on the nose. It made my nose area very cakey. I would not wear this out of choice although I would wear it if i had to. If I could get my money back I would...

I have a love hate relationship with this product. First, it doesn't last long on my skin at all and i use a primer and it still doesn't last. Second it drys quickly you have to really blend it in. Third, less is more the less you wear the better it looks it can look cakey if you use to much. The good thing about this product is the coverage it makes you look flawless but you can tell when you have it on. it doesnt look natural to me but i love the coverage i have decided to only wear this on special occasions if i'm going out and want to look made up.

In general, I do like this foundation but I've found it can be a little bit problematic...I use NC15, and when it is eventually blended in and set my skin looks pretty much flawless, however I do find it difficult to use. I find it quite thick, and when I use a primer underneath it the finish doesn't quite look right for me... I can't really describe it but it is like it is just sitting on top of my skin and looks a bit like a mask. So I wear it with no primer. I have tried several brushes, sponges, fingers trying to get it to look right and have found a MAC 130 works best. I like it because I like a lot of coverage, it gives that and it is long lasting. I do like this foundation and do think its good - you just need to get the application right based on your own skin and how this foundation looks and feels on it. I don't think I will buy another when my bottle runs out, I'm sure there are foundations out there which give just as good results but are a lot easier to work with.
