This is the best foundation for me in the winter, because my skin gets really dry. But since my skin gets really oily at the summer i cant use it then.
The foundation is easy to apply and gives me a flawless face. And the smart packaging lets me use up the last drops of foundation.
A little goes a long way wit this foundation.
You have to set this with a powder though, because it tends to wore of during the day, if not.

All in all, exellent foundation, for dry skin.

I thought this prouduct was abit on the pricy side for what it is, but i think it will last you for a long time, i thought it would be a little better than it is. As it is a bit oily and make your skin greasy and spoty,
^^ i wrote this a long time ago and reading it over i made a mistake i really like this foundation its now my favourite i think it not good for my skin though but i use it most days and its amazing so try this out:) im gonna buy it again!

This was one of the first mac products i brought and i think it might be worth the money depending how you use it and your type of skin. I have combination/oily skin by the way and i put powder over it also by mac. Coverage 4/5 Durability 3/5 Thickness 3.5/5 Even to though it says i wouldnt buy it again i might.

Hi Eeeeelicia, I read your review on this product and you seemed to have a hard time blending the product. The makeup artist at MAC probably used a primer on your skin before applying the foundation. Primers make foundation go on your skin really smooth and easy to blend :) you should try putting primer on b4 you do ur makeup

Colour & Smell:
My colour lies between studio sculpt's NC 30 and NC 25, so I bought NC30 and mix it with a lighter foundation to customize my summer/winter shade. Smells like coffee to me, which i dont mind.

Texture & Finish:
I wouldnt call it gel. This is seriously like a mousse but not whipped so not too airy. There is a serious amount of oil in this foundation, when I squeezed it out of the tube i could see the oil form around the product. It is a full coverage foundation so dont expect it to look completely natural and 'skin-like'.
Because of the liquid-mousse texture, it doesnt require much product for the whole face. it is very easy to blend and avoid the cakey finish by stippling a damp sponge all over the face.
This foundation (and concealer underneath) helps me hide my red acne scars and blemishes, truly a full coverage foundation.

This transfers to anything easily. Anytime after a phone call I observe a ridiculous amount of foundation transferred to my phone screen, even after setting it with powder. Powder is a must for this foundation for longer wear and to get rid of that dewy finish (for me is a no-no because i'm extremely oily).

This is good value for money because it is a full 40ml that require very little product every application. The shades are a bit off but what can we do? Different ingredients means different shades.

This was the first (and so far only) MAC foundation I have tried. The colour matches my skin perfectly (NW20) but I find the formula a little tricky - some days it looks beautiful, other days patchy and greasy. I can't figure out what changes this as my skin is pretty consistent. I think this foundation is best applied after a primer (something I don't like the hassle of) with fingers, then further blended with a stippling brush. I always have to powder my T zone or I look oily. That being said, I like the dewy finish it gives to my face (great for daytime) and the packaging is good for travelling or throwing in your bag.

This is my HG foundation, no doubt about it! I've tried a good number of other MAC foundations and high end plus drugstore. This doesn't compare to anything I've ever used or own. This foundation is magical. I've never had a break out or any discomfort from wearing it. It's beautiful on the skin.... I mean it looks like real skin when applied. At first the application looks a little funny I guess because of the gel but it somehow fixes itself after a couple minutes. Ive heard TiffanyD talk about this in one of her reviews. It just melds with my skin and all I do is set it with my ELF HD powder. Perfect. Dewy.
I love the packaging it's so easy to squeeze out and all you need is a pee size. I use it with a duo fiber brush and dab it on all over and then lightly buff it in and around. Fantastic. A lot of people say that this foundation oxodized and the shades are alittle off. I can kinda see it happening but I'm an NW15 and they don't make anything lighter in this. I might try NC15 to see any difference but I will forever buy this foundation again and again.

I really liked this product when I first got it. It matched me perfectly (I'm NC25) and I liked how it gave me a dewy look.

The only problem i had with it was that it was originally suggested to me at the counter because I told them I had dry skin. This didn't really help with dry skin at all (the lady said it had moisturizing properties, probably bs) but at least it didn't make it worse like some foundations *cough*bareminerals*cough* and its a very heavy foundation so if you're not used to makeup, I don't know if its the best place to start....

It also sweats off your face, especially when it gets hot so definitely not something to wear during summer. I live in minnesota right now so during the harsh winters this product is good to use. I'm not sure if I would repurchase just because its very very heavy and I prefer the natural look.

I really like this foundation. My skin type is normal-dry with occasional blemishes. I use it with a healthy dose of moisturiser beforehand (plus primer if I'm going out on weekends) and only squeeze out a tiny pea-sized amount. A little of this foundation goes a long way, so start off small and work your way up to the coverage you need. With the small amount I use I get a nice medium coverage that makes my skin look flawless. I always finish off with a powder too because it does look quite dewy (which I like).

I really did not like this foundaiton. It did not cover well, and my skin reacted immediately to it. It made me red and itchy. I don't know whats in this foundaiton, but for my skin it was horrible. I love mac studio fix and have had no problems with it, but this one is a big no for me.
