Where have you been all my life? I wish I hadn't waited so long to try this, because I absolutely love it. After having my son and getting closer to 30, I've seriously learned to appreciate more natural looking base products. My skin is still a little on the oily side, and this wears wonderfully on me. It's light and comfortable, looks like radiant skin, and is easy to apply. I …Read more

If I'm having a good skin day this stuff just cranks everything up to eleven. It looks absolutely flawless; glowy, dewy but not oily, lit from within etc etc. The only problem is that this honeymoon is incredibly short-lived. I can maybe get away with wearing this for 3 days max before it all comes crashing down around me in an explosion of cystic acne. I don't know what it is about MAC …Read more

I have oily skin but even so, I like to use luminous/dewy foundations, I don't like matte foundations on me. Anyway, I really like this foundation, it gives a dewy, juicy look on my face that I love. My skin looks like glowing, in a good way. I carry blotting papers with me and use them during the day, and after blotting, the foundation is still on my face, still perfect and …Read more

Great foundation for people with dry skin.

The coverage is sheer but buildable to light, and there is a looot of shades. I have MAC F&B in C1, and I find the formula amazing to apply. You can see the change immediately, from tired skin to lively skin. Feels light and does not crease at all. For reference, I have dry skin.

When I look for a face product, foundation or …

I do love this foundation but it breaks me out - not in terrible cysts, but little whiteheads and weird texture. Most other MAC foundations contain panthenol, which definitely gives me cystic acne, so I thought I was safe with this one :(

On the plus side, it gives a really beautiful finish - it's very sheer (extremely, very sheer, super sheer) but it evens everything out, looks …

After much seeing so much hype regarding this foundation, I've finally decided (after 3 years of speculation) to purchase this!

Initially I went into my local Mac to purchase the large version of this as it is more bang for your buck, but realised only pro stores stock the large ones.

After I was color matched, (C5) I decided to purchase this. I've been wearing …

My favorite light-coverage foundation. It's fairly inexpensive for a prestige foundation, the squeeze bottle is easy to use and hygienic, and there are a wide range of shades. It leaves you with the most beautiful healthy glow and plays well with concealer and setting powder.

This is LIGHT coverage. If you have large patches of discoloration that you rely on foundation to cover …

It's definitely an HG. My skin is dry and sensitive and this foundation has never given me problems. It becomes extremely natural as if it were a "me, only better." My skin nc/nw 15 fits the C1, does not oxidise, but could be lighter. Nothing that a powder does not solve. Perfect for dry skin and natural looks (I do not like capping my freckles, this foundation is perfect for this.
