Pros: *Long-lasting, natural looking// *NO transfer// *Great packaging
Cons: *It dries fast// *Hard to work with
It took me about 5 years to finally try MAC foundations. I have always been a Clinique liquid base kinda girl and I knew that with my fair skin, that was a pretty safe choice.
After getting tired of always repurchasing the same product over and over again, I decided to give MAC a shot. Don´t get me wrong, the rest of the products they always come up with… I absolutely LOVE…it was foundations I was a bit afraid of. I am out of home about 11 hours a day, at least…and I hate retouching my makeup, even though I sweat quite a lot. In addition to this, I prefer medium coverage and oil free products.
Let’s get started: I have a combination skin that can break out every now and then, but it is not 100% oily. My complexion shade is VERY LIGHT and neutral so I can wear both NC and NW but I have to be careful because I do have some redness and acne scars.
HOW DID I END UP TRYING THIS PRODUCT?
After trying F&B and SFF…I gave up. I started with face and body N2 during the summertime and decided that wanted a heavier base so the MA at the counter recommended me Studio Fix Fluid in NW20. Why did I even listen to her? NW is way too dark for me and the transfer that you get goes EVERYWHERE. Beautiful if you have to get your picture taken or if you want to film a video or something…in real life that is what I call full coverage. I like it but not for an everyday use…so I went back to mac and told the MA that i wanted a product that wouldn’t transfer. She said that the only one they had was Pro longwear but that with my skin type it wouldn’t look good. So I told her: “This time let’s go for an NC15 and let’s see how it looks on me”. After a 15 minutes argument, she gave in and I proved her wrong. Not only I am an NC, but the foundation looks like I have nothing on. AMAZING.yay
*It does what it says: a very long-lasting formula with no transfer at all. I had it on yesterday for about 16 hours and it was still looking fine at the end of my day.
*The packaging is great because the bottle comes with a pump so you can get just the right amount.
*And little goes a long way, with just one pump you are ready to go (depending- of course- on your taste).
*It gives you a sheer look, not matte but not shimmery and it feels like you have nothing on…natural finish.
*It dries fast…so you need to find your own way to apply it.
*You need a very good moisturizer before applying it…it can take some time getting used to it.
This will be my go to foundation for a daily use
