The foundation feels very balmy and rich, which should suit the skin on a dry side best. I have combination skin prone to oiliness in the T-zone, and yet I absolutely love the product. It provides a very glowy natural looking finish. The application is quite easy if you use the sponge that comes with the product; worked better than beauty blender or brushes I've tried. I do need to set the …Read more

I have a dry skin without much imperfections, how ever this is sheer like a tinted moisturizer or beauty balm. Using this does not really do much to me and it is so greasy that I dont use any moisturizer under it. I would definitely top it with powder. I would not buy this again. I have a MAC Prep and Prime Beauty Balm and I like that one way better and it has a better coverage. I would only …Read more

A true gem if you have dry flaky skin or at least a dry combo skin.

I decided to purchase this foundation since MAC was having their 25% off sale and I have been so curious about this foundation for so long. I was debating if I should get the Pro Longwear Nourishing Foundation or this and I decided to go with this due to my extremely dry skin.

At first glance, nothing is …

I get super dry skin during the winter, and this foundation still managed to make me look super oily. It feels very heavy and gross on my skin, even when I sheer it out.

I quite enjoyed this product but I would only use it on days that I'm not going out long because it only lasts about 6 hrs on the face (I have combo-normal skin) until oil starts to break through. I have yet to try it out with a primer but for a powder it holds my oils for a bit longer. It holds blush well. It did break me out a bit but that was only because it was already expired. Oh well …Read more

My first compact cream foundation and I'm really happy I bought this.I wish I tried it sooner! I've been needing one for a while now as my options for on-the-go have been taking a liquid/creme foundation+brush or powder compact . My skin is normal-dry and I live in a cold dry country and cream compacts just make more sense but there are not many made!

I was torn between this …

I own a liquid version of the same foundation (for some reason some people say it was discontinued, whereas there is a ton of it everywhere I go).

I have quite dry skin and local MAC employee recommended this to me saying it was a good product. I am so happy I actually took a sample of it first, because two days down the row and I knew that it was a terrible miss in the foundation …

As a foundation, I find this product to be kind of gross. That said, I am not a creme foundation type, so it may be lost on me as I prefer liquid foundation. I have found this to be a great creme for contouring though! I am quite fair, so I have this in shade NW25 for contouring (my brother-in-law had given this to me after he tried it and didn't want it). I blend it into the hollows of my …Read more

This is quite possibly the worst foundation I've ever bought. It's trully, really awful. I have very oily acne prone skin and I am not sure why the SA thought this would be very appropriate for me, especially when I asked for a matte foundation.

I was given shade NC35 (I am NC35 in their Prolongwear and Studio Fix) but this looks way to dark on me. Even worse, it won't …

Complete waste of money. I only wear Mac and in general I love their products. I decided to try new foundation instead of face and body and originally tried to buy the studio tech foundation and was pushed into buying this one by the assistant, to find it to be a complete waste of money. After using it numerous times I have found it draws attention to your pores by making them seem bigger, it …Read more
