NW45 foundation had a good color, but the coverage was too sheer. I don't need full coverage, but in some spots I want the foundation to cover, KWIM? I could use concealer with it, but I like to use one of the other. Concealer for powder days, foundation other days. Still wasn't like mat velvet #80.
NW50 foundation was lighter than NW45. go figure??? especially since there is no NW47 in the collection. it was a grey mess. Maybe someone batched it up for the NW43s, cause that color is missing too.
So basically after all that, and a comparison to these colors in SFF, which nothing in this line matches; I tried the NW50 concealer. It looked the best on my face. Perfect for my powder days, or even just alone. One pump, which is a little dot gave me coverage in all the necessary places and it blended out well. The funny thing about this concealer is that 1 pump is too much if you don't have to conceal much. Alot of people find this a flaw. I would if I didn't need to use that much. But since one pump is enough, then it works out. The concealer was very longwearing, so that was great! If you are oily, keep your blot powder handy with all ProLW, cause depending on how hot it is out, the shine still comes, anywhere from a pretty glow to needing to blot. Essentially, there is nothing you can do about that, just touch up every now and then.
Bottom line, MAC foundations are too fickle. I wear 1 color in this, and another color in that. Then a year later, I find out I need this color as oppose to that. Blah, Blah. I have used so many colors because 1 color is not the same in all formulas. That's crazy to me.
