This is the best and only product that I've come across that I can use confidently on my skin. My skin is extremely dry and sensitive and what I've found with this foundation is it doesn't tend to dry out or stick to my dry patches at all. I feel like it doesn't last very long, it is very sheer and a little buildable but not overly I would say 4-5hrs wear without a primer or setting spray. I would highly recommend this product to people with eczema or dermatitis like myself or just really dry skin in general!

I love this stuff! LOVE it!

When my go to foundation (a Clinique one) was discontinued about a year ago I was pretty desperate to find a new one, and this is it.

I tried everything from Armani to Sisley and from Chanel to Dior, but none of these brands worked for my very sensitive, very very dry, and very fair, cool toned skin.

I prefer light coverage foundations that give a very luminous, natural finish, and this does exactly that. It does not cover all that much, but it does even out my skin beautifully, and it is buildable to a medium coverage.

The color that suits my skin is C1, which is slightly yellow, but because it is so sheer it works. It gives my skin an incredibly healthy glowing look, without getting greasy, although I do lightly powder my nose and forehead to prevent shine. It lasts all through the day for me.

My sensitive skin does not react to this at all, and dry patches are actually looking better with this stuff on.

HG. I have been using it for years and years and alternate between C3 and C4. I just stiple it on. It's a very forgiving formula and knock wood - I have never had it cake, crease, flake or get blotchy on me summer or winter. Wears exceptionally well making my skin look natural but waaaay better. I have good smooth skin that leans towards being dry so the formula is made for me. Will keep on purchasing.

I rarely use foundations. The main reason is because I don't like the idea of packing on product on my face. However I hate it when I really need a foundation and I don't have one for that special occasion. Finally I decided getting this one for a number of good reasons.
I can't really describe my skin type. It's more on the normal side. Sometimes dry, but sometimes oily. Usually more oily than dry. In my experiences, I find certain foundations to look very cake on my skin. Now I am totally picky when it comes to bases which is why I held onto my wallet so tight for the longest time in purchasing a foundation. I usually like foundations that offers a glow but looks very natural and feels lightweight. The only blemishes I have are a fewww acne scars from way back when and the light redness around my nose.

Face and Body is super lightweight. It's very sheer. It's probably comparable to a tinted moisturizer sort of thing. However, I find that one coat helps perfectly even out my skin tone and give me a beautiful "glow from within" look. To cover up the blemishes wish are usually on my cheek area I usually apply a thin second cat on just the cheeks and voila, a perfect base. Yes some imperfections seep through but it's nothing that bothers me! I really prefer the natural look. The formula feels waterbed and is quite runny but as a result, it doesn't look cakey on my skin and i love that. I would imagine applying a third coat of Face and Body would result in a cakey look. With just two coats, I can achieve a more-so medium coverage. For others, it might be different.

For a foundation, I am just looking for it to not cake up, even out my skin tone, and give me a perfect glow that doesn't look greasy. This does just that. The only con is that the shine might be much for photographs. Usually I like the shine to be on my cheeks so I just matte down my forehead with a pressed powder and it works well!. I might want to find another foundation that is isn't cakey and lightweight like this one, but with less shine (more appropriate for events with photographs) however, I would repurchase this. For that natural glow, this is perfect. I love this foundation!!

This foundation is the perfect texture and thickness to blend into the skin perfectly. It doesn't cover every flaw, but it adds enough smoothness to the skin to make you look naturally more beautiful.

This never feels sticky, greasy or cakey - just the right formula to blend into the skin.

I like the wide range of shades, and was able to find a neutral tone to match my skin.

I wanted to love this so bad, but unfortunately this foundation isn't for me. F&B foundation provides sheer to light coverage and provides a nice dewy finish initially. But after a couple of hours, my skin looked more greasy rather than dewy, even on my normal skin areas. And because of this, I could feel the foundation on my skin. Even though the foundation made my skin greasy, it didn't break up on my skin, and it faded evenly after about 4 hours. I can imagine this being excellent for dry skin. The packaging is simple and practical, and for the amount it is a great value. I suggest the WaterWeight foundation if you wanted to like the F&B but found it to be too greasy.

This foundation is okay... Its nice that it's lightweight but I find that it slides off my face much easier. Nikkietutorials has mentioned that its better if you mix this with the MAC studio sculpt that it will work better. I may or may not repurchase. This isn't my favorite foundation but its not a bad one.

So many things to say about this product. First I have no problem with the smell of the product, to me it doesn't smell bad. The product does not give me acne of skin problems even though I'm prone to acne and rash. I like the feel and texture and the color is pretty close to my own skin colour (you can always mix two colors to get better results). But and this is a BIG but the dewy finish as people like to describe it does not look good on me. I have tried everything lots of powder, different powders, less product, beautyblender, brush. it does not matter what I do I end up with a very greasy and shiny face. when you have time to reapply every hour then you will probably have no problem but when I work I don't have that time and by the end of my day I look like a disco ball shinning away....However I have been using the foundation for a while now because I was a bit too excited and bought 3 bottles. I like everything about this foundation except the finish. Too much shine, maybe its my skin, maybe its other factors together but I think I will have to give up on this one because I prefer a more mat finish. I would recommend trying this. If it does shine like a disco ball wear it just to go out. But for every day or to work, definitely when you are running around and sweating this is not the foundation for you!!!!! I have to put tissues on my face soaking up the shine and 1hour later I'm miss shiny again....Conclusion: This product is not suitable for every skin type. Mac should specify that it may not work for some skin types. I think if it works on your skin its a great product. Forget about the hype and everyone claiming they love this foundation. It is definitely not the best one out there.

I'm a neutral leaning slightly yellow NC20 and use the shade C1 which is a really good match. I love the coverage of this foundation - it evens everything out and covers redness yet my skin still 'shows through'. It definitely does give more coverage than a typical tinted moisturizer, claims that this has no coverage at all are wrong IMO. I don't have perfect skin yet my skin does look good with this on. It feels lightweight and is very long wearing; I have worn this in every type of challenging-makeup-wearing-scenario (clubbing, humid weather, cold weather, rain etc...) and it does not budge. The formula is perfect for my normal-dry skin...it spreads easily onto my skin when rubbed on with fingers and gives a natural ever so slightly dewy finish. I usually set with blot powder and my skin stays mainly shine free all day. My skin is very sensitive and thankfully I don't seem to get any breakouts or irritation from this foundation. I have repurchased many times, it is a staple in my collection!
