It came in a beautiful MAC Box (Sounds odd, but I keep all my make-up boxes)
ITS HUGE! Look at it!!! HUGE! Covers my whole hand. Very Impressed!
It's brilliant for on the go touch ups as it comes with a handy little mirror.
Look, at the paleness : )
Pale (No Flash) (It's almost white, with the flash on)
BUT: It came with a cosmetic application sponge. I've only used it three times and it's already orange. SO un-hygienic! I'm either going to have to replace these every few days (what a waste) so that I don't get clogged up and I end up with spotty skin. I think it would be best to use a brush to apply the product.
WARNING: My skin before hand VERY Red ) : and have more freckles than I thought I had too
With one slight application (lessened the redness and covered quite a few of my freckles)
Close up: It's covered some of the spots on my chin and covered the redness on my nose. I've not used much here. But the coverage is VERY build-able. The product lets you apply as little as you want, or as much as you want. I only need a little bit to cover my redness. So far, so good : )
A Selfie : ) I only have 'one layer' on here. It's taken a lot of the redness out of skin and it feels lovely and comfy. It's covered my spots, but I didn't apply too much as it also lets my natural skin come through, so that I don't look too 'made-up' (perfect for work)
It's kinda shocking how strange I look with just foundation on and no other make-up.
I love the coverage of the MAC Powder, it even makes a good attempt at covering my under-eye purpleness, but I still still a little more concealer under my eyes
I'm really happy with this foundation. It's the first MAC foundation and the first powder style foundation I have ever used.
It does have some amazing plus sides:
- Amazing for all skin tones
- Looks natural
- Easy Application
- Build-able coverage
- Very Long Lasting
- Mirror included for on the go touch ups
- Really good for oily skin
- I've also heard that this can be used wet too, which I would love to try
It does have some downsides too:
- You need to moisturize like crazy before applying it, otherwise it highlights any dryness on the skin
- The sponge that's included is very un-hygienic
- Can look a little too powdery on dry skin (well it does contain talc!)
- No SPF (This may be better for pictures though)
I'm really happy with this, and I am going to keep on using it. However I feel that the MAC Studio Fix Fluid might be better for my dry skin (I've put it on my wishlist, so hopefully I will be getting my hands on it soon)
Do you own any MAC Foundations, what do you think of them?
What's your 'go to' foundation?
PS: I apologize that I look about 15 in this post, I'm actually 24 (Crazy I know!)
