I usually use MAC's Studio Tech, but I decided to give this one a try. It's definitely thicker than Studio Tech. I thought it would be more creamy, but it seems more like a liquid foundation. It has good coverage, and lasts me through the day. You definitely get more product, compared to the Studio Tech. They're the same price, but I can't tell if I'd repurchase. I definitely like the matte finish, and it doesn't seem to make my face oily. I use MAC's 190 brush to apply, and I only need less than a pea-size amount.

This is one of the worst foundations I have ever tried. I always get sucked into wearing Mac foundations every couple of years or so and always regret it. I've tried studio tech and studio fix back in the day in high school where I used to wear NC 25-30 trying to fake a tan. If I knew how matte this foundation looks on, I would have never purchased it. Thank god I got it for super cheap on E-bay, but I still hate wasting money. This foundation has a glue like texture and is extremely thick. I've tried applying it with my fingers and then a sponge. I even wet the sponge thinking it would make it easier to apply, but no such luck. When you first put it on, it looks like you have a mask on. In natural sunlight, any redness I had on my face, and other then that I have good skin, you could see and it would settle into parts of my face like my cheeks. I absolutely hate the color selections on Mac foundations and have yet to understand how every shade, I bought this foundation in NC15 the lightest they have, looks orange on my skin. I'm fair/olive complexion, and don't enjoy looking that fake orange color that I've found all Mac foundations have on me. The most un-orange shades I've found are in the NW line so perhaps I should stick to that color line. Forget about going to one of the Mac girls at the counters who always recommend colors that are about 2 shades darker then your skin color.

i'll keep this short. pros: gives a nice natural matte finish, and a little goes a long way. cons: it sat on top of my skin no matter how much i blended or buffed or set with powder. i will only repurchase if i can't find a better foundation. but i hope i don't have to!

The best foundation ever! I LOVE it! It covers, but it still lookes natural and gives me a nice healhy glow. What I altso love about MAC is the shades. Im a NC42, not always easy to find a shade that matches my skin perfectly, but this does. Recommend.

I love this entire line from MAC! The foundation when applied correctly offers a full coverage finish casting the face with a fresh dewiness and the concealer works absolute wonders on bleshimes.

I am a male makeup artist and actor, and sometimes need to do my face for photos or events. This is one of the best foundations I have found for myself. On clients, I ususally go with Full Coverage or Face Atelier foundation. When I first purchased this for myself, I swear, the first 3 times I squeezed out too much and wasted it (and I thought it was only a little.) When I say this goes a long way, I mean it. Basically a dab (pea sized) is all you need, unless you want a more full coverage look. My new thing is using strobe liquid underneath the foundation and it gives that awesome, fresh, "J.Lo" looking dewiness and NOT greasy at all. I have very oily skin, especially my nose and forehead and I haven't had any issue with this product yet. I use a Mac 190 for both products.

I went to MAC and asked one of the sales people to help me find a foundation for my dry skin. When I wear foundation it leaves really gross dry skin flakes on my forehead. Obviously not attractive. The woman recommended this foundation. I'm a NW20 and she put it on me in the store. My skin does not feel dry or tight and best of all no flakes! I would definitely recommend this product for people with dry skin

I bought this after reading good reviews on it. I have dry or very dry skin depending on the season. The salewoman said I should have NW15. I'm very pale with pink undertones. Once I got home and tried it on I could tell it was too dark for me. But I've been using it anyway.I also think it's a bit thick and sticky when it comes on the skin. You can feel it althrough the day, that you are wearing foundation, it didnt marry with the skin and it didnt have great coverage. It felt a little bit like wearing a mask. It felt and looked a bit better when I used a tinted primer underneath it.I think the trick with this product is to wear a primer and to just add little by little so it doesn't get too thick and sticky. I don't think I will repurchase this because the color was too dark eventhough it's their lightest color. It didn't feel super and coverage was so and so. I still have half the tube left to use once spring and summer comes around. Maybe I'll blend it with other foundations to see it I can get a better result.I bought this at the taxfree and paid 245 SEK = $37 and that is cheaper than buying it at MAC Stockholm. But sadly enough still much more expensive than buying it in USA. If I lived in the USA I would buy MAC products all the time because the price is so much better there.

This foundation is very sticky and never felt like it set properly, even with powder over it. Other than that coverage is average and it has a dewy finish. I will not be purchasing this foundation again.

I used this product about a year ago on the suggestion of one of my friends who swears by MAC products. And for a while, I used it without incident. The coverage was good, though it did smell a little odd and was quite drying. Then after three months of using it, I broke out worse than I ever had in my history of using foundation. I ended up on antibiotics and Differin cream to clear it up and that took months. I'm never buying MAC foundations ever, ever again.
