NW45, NC50 more I literally threw the rest of my foundations away after using this. It blends easily, feels so much lighter than other foundations and covers decently while still looking natural. My husband said he didn't know I was wearing makeup, but he had thought I looked really pretty the day I wore it and then asked him what he thought. It stayed on great st through sweating, wiping my nose, and taking care of a 7 month old all day.
I highly recommend this foundation!
Like This? NC44 more I love the shade of the foundation because it blends so well with my skin! Beauty Junkie Expert Level 1. May 26, , 8: NW15 more One of my favourite foundations in the world to this day.
I vary between oily and dry, depending on various factors, aka weather, health, diet and so forth, but i always love a matte finish - and i can always get it with this foundation. The only annoying thing is that the bottle doesn't come with a pump and the matching pump is more than most would cost. But either way, this foundation is well worth it. I have been using it for well couple years now, and even though my skin is very sensitive, it doesn't break me out or anything like that. I've been using this foundation for a couple years now and it is my go to.
I first went to Mac because I have a very fair complexion and at the time their shade range fit me best. I would consider it to be medium coverage but very easy to build onto. When it is set with a powder and spray it lasts all day and continues to cover everything. Only thing i dislike is that it comes with a screw off top and you have to purchase a pump separately from Mac. Skin Tone: Skin Type: Combination Dry.
Skin Concerns: Large Pores Redness. I love this one also!
I accidentally brought this one, this is good also for dry skin with a good moisturizer on your face. The pros you much used a lot of moisturizer first or it will be kinda stiff when it dries, I guess its perfect for oily skin. Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2. April 16, , 3: NW13 more I was not pleased with this Mac product. This was my first real foundation purchase that was not from target.
I was so excited to use this foundation when I purchased it and I did use it for quite some time. I recently purchased a new foundation that made me realize how much this foundation was not the right one for me. This foundation I thought was rather orange on my face and made me break out quite a bit.
For someone with sensitive skin, this may not be the foundation for you. I also felt as though this foundation made my face oily and that the makeup would separate on any oily patches of my face and peel away at my skin on the dry patches of my face. The coverage of the foundation was very well, nearly a full coverage foundation, which was pleasing. The design of the packaging was good and if you purchase a pump the amount will last quite a long time.
Combination Dry Sensitive.
Redness Scarring. This used to be my favorite foundation. It had more of a matte finish which I liked and had a nice buildable coverage. I stopped using it though because I was already the palest shade and every time I wore it, it would oxidize and turn me orange. This paired with the long-wear concealer are the perfect duo! Honestly not my favorite foundation. Made my skin look greasy, shiny, uneven, and there was not a shade that matched my skin. Very pricey for the quality you get, and unfortunately I will not be buying this again.
Normally love Mac but there is room for improvement. Acne Blackheads Large Pores Redness.
That product for me was Mac Pro Long wear foundation. I honestly think this foundation would suit most skin types, except those with dry skin. MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation If you want high coverage and long-wear, but have dry skin, this would be the one to.
Great for a long lasting wear. Goes on smooth and doesnt cake a lot but it dried out my skin. If you are looking for real full coverage that lasts all day then this is the foundation for you. If you are looking for a more natural look I suggest something else. Uneven Skin Tone. April 24, , 7: When i first started using makeup i went to lancome the makeup there was great for my face just a little pricey.
Then i would just buy drug store makeup which always made my face look pinkish and my undertones are already pink.
I started using mac powder they always gave me darker tones with drugstore foundation. In november of i went to sephora for a color match they had me try out tarte amazonian clay which i totally disliked the feeling PLUS it was dark and orangish. I went back without any makeup since the last time i removed it there and my face tends to get red right away so that couldve distorted the match. This time the girl had me try one from marc jacobs which felt silky but was still too dark and orange for me.
I finally decided to try mac's foundation and ask for a different powder and im satisfied with this foundation its finally light enough and matches my skin tone. I love how soft my face looks and feels. Want to bookmark your favourite articles and stories to read or reference later?
