My moisturizer has SPF 20, the new primers will have SPF 35. Why do I need a foundation with SPF 15? I'd rather have the option of choosing between one with SPF and an SPF-free one. It's very important to protect our skin with SPF, however, I don't think that overloading products with SPF is the solution either. The Matchmaster has similar SPF ingredients as the Studiomoisture Tint (Octinoxate), and it slightly stings when I apply it to my face. While I do not worry too much about it, it's certainly discerning.

 


I'm with you. I'm extremely sun-sensitive but I try to wear the least amount of sunscreen I can safely get away with. I find ALL chemical sunscreens irritating and I also find Titanium Dioxide irritating if it's more than about 2-3%. I'm talking about stinging and redness; I can't tell what other damage it may be doing. Many sunscreens are easily destabilized by common ingredients in makeup. Then lots of products add extra chemicals to try to stabilize the sunscreen and it just get's so complicated to figure out what's on my skin and whether I'm actually protected from the sun. I think makeup won't be allowed to claim "SPF" for much longer though. Nobody uses enough of it to get the level of protection it claims.  The term "SPF" probably won't be around for much longer either for that matter. One of the reasons I have so many foundations is to have things that I can safely combine with whatever sun protection I have or don't have underneath.

these don't come in NC or NW.  its a different colouring system.

Sounds interesting, especially the bit about line reducing soft focus powders.

Lou, can get a sample before you order? I hope that MAC will provide some comparison chart.

Are you actually looking to replace your Chanel foundation? Maybe Matchmaster and you are a good match (pun intended) :-)

 

post #39 of 376

There is NO NW OR NC in these foundations they will change to the color of your skin im I can wear 1.5 or 2.0 I have the break down of what nw and nc shades can wear. I wore this foundation for a few hours it feel like face and body on skin if a buildable coverage that i like. 

 

btw if you all would like my fan page as a THANK YOU FOR ALL THE INFORMATION I GIVE OUT it only takes two seconds www.facebook.com/EloyGuerraMua  please and thank you

As you are quite pale, I would go with #1 and hopefully the "intelligent molecules" will know what to do with your complexion. But let's see what the match chart will tell us.

 

Do we have a confirmed release date?

I wonder how exactly this techonology works! Their description is not very detailed

post #46 of 376

Didn't Estee Lauder have something similar a few years ago? I used to get my brows done at the EL brow bar at Selfridges and it was free when you purchased a product of/over 15 quid, so I ended up buying quite a few products.

 

I also recall some drugstore brands (was it Covergirl?) that claimed to adapt to one's complexion. I think the clue is that the product is rather sheer, where it is easier to match different skintones. E.g. I think most people can wear at least two different shades of F&B without noticing a big difference (unless you are on one or the other end of the shade spectrum). Where these products failed in the past is to accommodate complexions that have strong undertones. While it is seemingly consumer-friendly to offer less shades (especially for those who are inexperienced in what they are looking for), it's hard for a foundation to match both NC and NW complexions.

 

I am, however, still full of anticipation but most likely, I will stick with F&B and only buy the 193. I'm curious to find out how it looks like. Maybe it's similar to the 191 but with an angle. :)

post #47 of 376


hopefully not the 190 angled :S hate that one too dense and hard to clean and it takes away all your product! Id love 191 to be larger tho

Yeah, the 190 eats quite a bit of product, but the 191 is a bit flimsy. Maybe a mix of both would be good? Or a larger version of the 192, which is a dream for cream blushes, IMO.

 

It's funny that they promote both the 190 and 193 for Matchmaster, lol.
 

 

post #49 of 376

the 193 looks just like the 190 but with an angle and yes it would 1.0 for those super light people 

 

hope this helps

i will have to say, i get my best application of my preferred foundation (cream Mineralize SPF 15) with the 190, even though that's sort of against the grain.

Thanks Eloy for Matchmaster Shade Referance chart! I will need to see you to get a foundation match with that foundation.

post #54 of 376

Thanks for the chart :)

 

I've never found a MAC foundation that works for me. Hopefully this will be the one.

post #55 of 376

I'm pretty darn excited! I like MAC foundation but even NC15 is still not an exact match, its still off. I hope this matches better YAY thanks for the chart PB! :)

Do you think 1.0 could work for you? There is always F&B in White to lighten it up if you have to do that.

post #59 of 376

I wonder why this foundation cost more than the others? Hmm hopefully this brings more product and a built in pump packaging (like Prolong wear.) Can't wait to see the promo pics. Hopefully I will get excited for it. Let's see.
