I like this foundation. It's my first one from MAC because their foundations always look way too pink/orange/yellow for my olive skin. I'm still trying to find the best foundation for my green undertones, but I was surprised with how well this has worked for me thus far.I purchased this foundation two weeks ago and it was about 2-3 shades too dark for me and I was really bummed since it's expensive and also had a good formula that worked well for my skin. After a week on vacation, it matches my skin really well. My skin is currently quite tanned and is likely the darkest it'll get. It's a really good colour for me in the summer. I apply it using Sonia Kashuk's flat top kabuki brush (came in a set) and it works really well. I have tried the Real Techniques buffing brush as well as their sponge, and it made the foundation go on too sheer or a little streaky.I apply it lightly on the areas where my skin is good and more heavily on the spots/acne that I have. I'm having a terrible break out right now so I can't say whether this foundation irritated my skin, but it's matte on my oily/combo skin. To make it more dewy, I apply a glycerin/(rose)water blend and it helps to add some dimension and shine to the foundation. Not everyone will like that but when dewy, it looks really natural on my skin and does give it a slightly airbrushed finish without looking cakey. Since it's the summer, the heat does make the foundation tacky and when I sweat, I can definitely feel a layer of makeup on my skin.Would I purchase this again? Maybe, but I would probably only use it for the summer. I would look into getting lighter colours, but I'd like to try Face & Body first. I'm not a huge MAC follower, and I'm not loyal to the brand but this foundation does last well. Even in the heat, it can last me for a good 6-8 hours. I've worn it for 12+ hours and it definitely fades away but it doesn't bother me much. I like foundation to look natural and don't bother to touch it up. Overall, a good product. Until I try lighter colours, I can't say whether this is a foundation I would buy again. I'd rather get samples next time since the undertones at MAC aren't the best for olive skin. It's good, but it's not the best.

Holy shit. I have spent months and months on makeupalley trying to find my future HG foundation. I have been using studio fix for 5+ years and was always too scared to try a new foundation. I tried true match foundation and it was rubbish on my skin didnt sink in at all.Tried this instead of purchasing studio fix again and sooo blimmen happy that i did! IT IS SUCH A GOOD FOUNDATION!! it actually sinks into my skin and made my (what i thought was horrible skin due to the studio fix sitting horribly on my skin) sooooo smooth and airbrushed looked. LOVE LOVE this foundation!

This was my first MAC product and I totally love it. I purchased the color in NC35 and it gives me a nice matte finish and it is definetly long wearing!

I wanted to like this product so badly.The colour I got is NC20 and it's a perfect match. It wears beautifully for hours, and my touch-ups are minimal as I don't get too oily when I wear this.The issue that I had was with application and that it broke me out. It's difficult to blend. Once it was on my skin it didn't want to move which I'm assuming is how it managed to stay on the skin for so long. However, because it was difficult to blend I ended using a lot more product than I needed to. My skin broke out and I was so upset because I really wanted this to work. So now I only wear it on special occasions or if I'm going to a party and need my make up to last all night long. I never wear this more than two days in a row so I can give my skin a break from this product.

I love this foundation! Finally I've found a foundation that doesn't wear off after an hour or two. This foundation feels nice on, looks nice on and best of all it matches exactly to my skin color so there is no foundation line. I apply this in the morning before work, come home and by night time it's still got full coverage. It's great! Defiantly worth the money

This foundation has a nice finish, It definitely lasts all day. Has medium coverage, I have always looked for a full coverage foundation but realised with concealer and medium coverage powder it was a bit of over kill. This stops me looking cakey but provides me with enough coverage to hide my very pale complexion when my fake tan fades from my face.

Still searching for the foundation that actually stays on my nose for an 8 hour day of work. I thought maybe I would get lucky but nope. I also used MAC prep & prime primer and prep & prime powder.

This foundation is long wearing! Thank god. I wear this to work and 15 hours later it still looks fine. Does not settle into lines! - Pretty sure it doesn't make me break out either.

I've been using this product for around 3 years. I absolutely love it! I have combination skin and find it doesn't cause any trouble for my skin. I'm the lightest shade NC15. It's stays on perfectly all day, I never have to touch up or reapply. I wear it daily and one bottle can last me up to 6 months! Which is amazing for the price. I recommend this foundation to anyone looking for full coverage. I always get compliments on my make up base and this foundation is the reason why!!! To help it stay in place I also use MAC mineralised powder on top in light plus. These two are my holy grail products and I don't think I'll ever stray away from them.My only con is that the pump can cause wastage. The packaging is really nice but not practical!

Love it but there are some set backs... I use my beauty blender to apply this foundation. I wet my beauty blender, put the foundation on it then dab the beauty blender on my face.. after that if needed I will put the pro longwear concealer on over top. I exchanged a product for this so I can't really comment on the price. Pros-great coverage-buildable (but dries quickly so you need to be quick it kinda looks weird if you put on more once it is already dry, it doesn't go on as well,. for me anyways)-nice semi matte finish -great to use with the Pro Longwear concealer Cons-pump bottle, tends to cause waste of product when it pumps too much out-OXIDIZES !!! must use a primer to prevent the oxidation so you don't turn out orange! (test it out on your hand before purchasing)-drys quickly so you need to put more on at first to build All in all, it's a good foundation, not a total holy grail....but it is okay..Deff like the concealer better
