Pros: Nice medium coverage, true satin finish
Cons: Accentuates dryness, is said to break people out
This was the first MAC foundation that I ever bought and I've never had any temptation to stray and find another one. I used to have oily skin, and so when SFF stayed on my face for only a few hours, I knew that it wasn't a matte finish, but it wasn't dewy, and it definitely needed a primer and setting powder in order for it not to move about. With blotting sheets and powder touch ups, my skin could look wonderful from the moment of application to the moment of removal.
Around three or so months ago, something triggered my skin to stop being oily and be completely normal. The result? Flawless skin from morning to night! Now. About a month ago, my skin went really dry and ever since, no matter what product I use, I have dry, flaky patches ON TOP of my oiliness, which is quite odd. This foundation does not flatter flakiness. At. All. I had to adapt my application method, but I've once again found a way to make it flatter my skin perfectly.
If you're thinking of trying this, you need to try it first. I've heard of and seen so many bad reactions that it's given people, but if you're a lucky one - like myself - and you can use this product, you will be a very happy bunny.
