    MAC - Foundation & Concealers: various shade, formulas, and coverages

    Some NC and NW Shades






    How full some of the formulas cover (based on how well it covers a scar i have on my arm)....










    love this stuff, but you can feel it on your face for sure


    Applied it with my finger, one coat. Pretty med. coverage, but i'm sure u can build it up, or use concealer.


    I had to put on a couple layers (with my finger), but even still, it never looked cakey.


    applied with my finger. took one application to cover. i'm impressed!

    I compared the new Studio Sculpt Foundation and Concealer in NC 20 with a few other foundations. Sorry, the text in the pictures is German, but I think, that does't matter ;-)

    artificial light


    natural light:


    A really bad swatch in artificial light. I can't believe how the SS NC15 can wary so much of the SFF!

    More stuff yippeeee!

    my SFF is darker than the other formulas. Select SPF and Studio finish concealer look identical to me. My Full Coverage is SUPER OLIVE -- looks nothing like the other formulas.

    The new concealer:


    The new foundation:




    The new concealer v. the other full coverage (I do find the new Studio Sculpt to be a *tad* deeper)


    NOT dupes. 214 in MUFE is probably more like NC44 or NC45...?

    MAC on left, MUFE on right:
