I was so reluctant to get this but after going through around 20 different foundations I felt like I just had to give this a try.
I usually purchase my makeup online so I trusted the reviewers online in terms of shade so I got myself NC15 which was waaaaay darker than I had expected, but let's say that was my mistake.
Overall I'm not disappointed with …

I have dry, sensitive skin with a touch of Keratosis Polaris on my face (the chicken skin people usually get on arms and thighs) pretty terrible base to start putting any foundation on really. I've tried so many foundations and this seems to be about the only one that doesn't flare up my skin but also stays put for the day, well mostly anyway. I wear NC17 but will probably go up a …Read more

This is MAC’s most popular foundation and for good reason. I would consider this a medium coverage foundation that’s very much buildable. Sometimes when I just want light coverage, I'll put a bit of product in my hand and rub one thin layer to my face, giving a very natural look. For more coverage I usually do two layers, also using my hands. It doesn’t feel like you’re wearing foundation …Read more

Final edit: nw10 exact match in studio fix fluid; absolutely no jaw line. In other Mac shades I can match nw15 (studio sculpt). To give an idea of other foundation shades I do not have to blend down my neck — Armani luminous silk 4.75. Lancôme teint idole 100N. Chanel vitalumiere aqua 12 rose beige. Hourglass hyaluranic skin tint shell. During the 25% sale I actually got the MAC pot concealer w …Read more

Shade: NW10

MAC Studio Fix is criminally underrated, in my opinion. It's marketed as a full coverage, matte foundation, but can be used in a variety of ways. It can be sheered out or build up without affecting performance. It is more of a natural, satin-matte finish which looks like skin, and works even on my dry skin. It doesn't look like you are wearing a cakey mask, unlike …

I know there are brands out there that everyone swears by...mac is one of them. So I can't help but feel even more disappointed when I don't like their products. This didn't look good on. Enter sad face emoji

Purchased NW13 (not warm 13) I generally choose a neutral undertone to combat my red face and blend into my neutral
neck/chest.
Forgot my usual foundation was a sephora exclusive so I tried some while I was in Ulta. The MAC artist applied this to my cheek area and I was amazed MAC had expanded their range and had lighter than NW20 finally.
The formula is amazing. I'm a …

I love this stuff so hard! I think I finally found my Holy Grail foundation!! It has perfect coverage and gives my skin that velvety airbrushed finish. It's also long lasting and wears great. The shades run light in this one - other MAC bases I'm NC20-25 but this one I'm NC15. I buff Lancome Dual Finish foundation powder in Ecru II or Wheat II for a little more color (using a big …Read more

I have used many foundations in my life. From high end to drugstore. I thought I would like this one, because for my wedding the professional hair and makeup artist used another foundation from Mac that I did. Unfortunately this was a big dissapointment for me. The foundation is really drying on my skin and looks cakey. From a distance it looks nice and the NC20 color really matches my face in …Read more
