Does anyone have the ingredients for this new MAC foundation?

Light looks too dark and yellow for me so it's a skip.
I preordered the new The Ordinary Serum Foundation in the lightest shade, I hope it matches and won't break me out. I got an allergic reaction from a bunch of their products (still doesn't stop me from trying more :rolleyes:).


Have you seen the ingredients for this one?

Video review is here-warning it does ramble--but the coverage is very very very very sheer in this particular review. I read on Instagram that ppl are mixing pro longwear concealer into it to make it more foundation-like.

Another Youtube review-->This one is super helpful for figuring out the coverage because she has freckles which got covered more than I thought they would. Three pumps used. Very different coverage level compared to the prior review. SNEAK PEEK: MAC Next to Nothing Face Colour + Next to Nothing Powder Review | samantha jane - YouTube

Thanks so much! Looks like it's a no-go for my darn skin because of the dipropylene glycol and the bismuth. Bummer. But thanks for your help!

I am not surprised by sheer coverage. it is not supposed to cover but to blur and perfect based on what mac artist are saying

btw in the second review it does cover a lot!

Yes Monsy I wonder if this is more like a Sunday Riley primer- which only came in one shade. I think the word foundation in the product name might be a little bit confusing.

official name is next to nothing face color not foundation (on the bottle)
i think this will be great for someone who wants sheer coverage. i love that it can be paired with other foundations for more perfecting and more glow and it can be worn under or over...
 
I think this will be great for me when i want light coverage! I can't wait i will probably skip the powder because i been wanting to try the pro long wear powder

Another tutorial- With Light Plus. This tutorial uses a deeper shade of the Next to nothing powder as a contour/bronzer: Self Demo w MAC Next To Nothing Face Color - YouTube


And one more --this one mixed with pro longwear concealer--> M.A.C Next to Nothing Face Color Tutorial - YouTube Feel free to fast forward through the very long contouring part in the middle.

This one uses a DRAMATICALLY darker Next to Nothing shade compared with her skintone to make a bronzed look: MAC Next to Nothing Summer Bronze Skin - YouTube She calls it a "skin stain."

I do find that face and body does provide a bit of coverage for me, on my dry skin that doesn't have too many problems. I probably will try this out, but do wish it had spf, though that'd probably be less blurring in photos?

After a few days of testing the new foundation, I bought it and the powder today. Both in Light colour.
What convinced me?
Beautiful blur effect on the skin, long lasting fresh look and insta-filters look :)
I want to buy also both brushes. The powders brush is very comfy and soft - love it!

Here's a video tutorial for those curious about covering red patches. The lighting is not the best, but fine enough to see that Next to Nothing doesn't cover her red-ish areas very well. Her red areas aren't VERY red at all, and still you can see them showing through esp. with using only one layer. But you can see that after she applies the Next to Nothing Powder (I've seen several reviews saying that the powder adds some coverage), it does look even.

I plan to go to a counter today to look at this. I wonder how it compares to Glossier skin tint. I'm hoping it will be as versatile as they claim and that I can use it by itself for work days and under/over other foundation when I want to be more polished.

Close to finishing my bottle of Water Weight foundation and Mineralize skinfinish, so I'm going to give this a try.

The colors are throwing me off a bit only because I'm a Nw47 in Water Weight during the fall, winter, and spring seasons. Once summer rolls around I have to use something different as there is no Water Weight color that matches me.

I'm hoping the darkest shade will remedy that. I prefer the light coverage for my everyday look.

Nice--I didn't realize they were at counters this week. I'd like to get a sample before trying a whole bottle--let us know how it goes? I might get to the mall tomorrow.
