Mac Face and Body Foundation Review
- Sheer coverage
- Luminous Finish
- Long Lasting
- Water based liquid foundation
I have been using this every single day since I got it. I am absolutely utterly in love with it. It gives you the most natural finish which looks invisible to the human eye. Don't ask me how it's possible, but it's possible. It looks like my skin but better, you can't tell I'm wearing makeup at all. This is definitely holy grail for me. It knocks off my beloved Bobbi Brown moisture rich and Bourjois 10hr sleep effect out of the scene. There's one major reason why I love this and that is because it sets.
The fact that it sets helps it last all day, I don't even always set it with powder and it still lasts. It's also supposed to be transfer resistant and water resistant = Fabulous! Water based foundations are great for combo/oily skin as it moisturizes without upsetting the oil balance of your skin. It's also great for people with dry and normal skin as it provides hydration... win win situation!
I apply this with my hands, it takes about 10 seconds to set. I have tried brushes but found the brushes absorb too much product and I get a more natural finish with my hands, plus it's faster.
If I need extra coverage on my left cheek for example, I apply another layer which works great or I just use concealer.
The 'Face & Body foundation' looks great in flash photography...
...and in natural light.
I would recommend this to people who like tinted moisturizers, light foundations and a luminous dewy finish. (Skip this if you are into a matte finish with full coverage.) This will suit all ages and there is a wide colour range to suit all races. I am a shade C4 (NC35) for reference. However, like I mentioned in my haul post, it's so sheer that if you got a shade too light or too dark it will not be noticeable. I have had a few messages from people telling me this expires quite quickly, I'm not too sure what the time limit is... but I'm sure I will finish this way before it goes off as I use it every day.
Have you found 'The One' foundation you can't live without? I clearly have! :)
