Loving this foundation. I have very dry skin and was struggling during the winter months with my Studio Fix, it kept clinging to my dryness and was looking cakey.

These colours run way way lighter that the Studio Fix, i wear NC17 in Studio Fix but am in NC30 in the waterweight, it is ever so slightly too dark but its nearly summer here in NZ so wont be an issue in a month or so. The …

I have been trying to go for a more natural look lately since my skin is looking more dry and dehydrated under full coverage matte formulas that I usually use. I have combination skin and don’t like the dewy look- at all but I do want to move away from the all matte look. This foundation looks nice and natural. it gives just about medium coverage when applied with a dense brush, I use the Bobbi …Read more

I love this stuff - just gives you healthy natural glowy skin! It's my 2nd fave base after SFF! I usually use a big fluffy kabuki to buff on Lancome Dual Finish powder and it gives me a glowy airbrushed finish that I love! These shades do run light. I use NC15 in SFF but in this I use NC25. I also like to use Hourglass Mineral Veil primer underneath or Glamglow illuminating moisturizer in …Read more

I really wanted to like this product as the concept of a lightweight foundation with spf 30 seemed ideal for summer. I can usually get reasonable performance from most foundations but alas not this one! I have tried it with primer, without primer and I could never get decent results even with the sheerest application . The initial application takes a lot of effort to avoid streaky results and …Read more

Lightweight texture. Good for the skin feels good on the skin. Looks better with mac mineralize skin finish as a setting powder. It also holds about 3 to 4 hours with primer. It's really nice it looks really good like I cant believe I look this good! I'm 26 almost 27 for all those that think Mac is for youngsters I think it's for everyone ! The best recommendation comes from a mac …Read more

So, I pulled this out the other day and forgot how much I liked it. The SPF30 is the kicker for me.
It's medium coverage IMHO, and not terribly buildable, but spot stippling with a brush is your best bet.
I use this over oil, no primer, and it lasts, is dewy and is as easy to apply as any other water type fdn. Which means you need to work fast. I use damp hands, and tidy up with a …

I had given up on MAC foundations a while ago – not bc they are bad, b tbc as I’ve gotten older I find they do not suite my dry and textured skin. Enter this foundation!

I am a huge fan of this foundation. Its light as a feather and feels like second skin, yet it still does have some good coverage. This has more coverage than I expected it to – you could say more than a BB or CC but …

I really love this foundation, it looks truly beautiful on the skin and doesn’t sit in my fine lines or look heavy either, you do have to powder with this though. My other makeup sits beautifully on top also, I tend to use my Hourglass Ambient lighting palette with this. It isn’t the most hard wearing so I don’t wear it as my everyday foundation but prefer it for special occasions as it …Read more

I was using Armani foundation, similar to this one, and though I liked it a lot, the shade was a bit brownish for my skin. Mac has a wide shade selection, so I use the lightest, with pink undertone. This is currently the best foundation I have tried. It is lightweight, it doesn't clog my pores, it lasts the whole day, it doesn't melt. I have no bad comment so far, I am happy I found a …Read more

My skin is always oily around my T-zone so when I was in the mac store, I got this foundation recommended to me for my oily skin. When i wear this foundation I look like an oil slick after a few hours, this is a real no-go for me. It also caused me some breakouts so I will not buy this again.
