sheer build-able coverage

MAC face and body is a water based foundation that provides sheer, lightweight and long lasting coverage. I don't like MAC Face products period, most of them oxidise really badly and do not work on my skin. However since trying this one I've really changed my perception on their face cosmetics. The coverage is really really light, but incredibly buildable. I like using concealer first on the areas I need coverage and then topping up with a light coverage of Face and Body to even out the rest of my skintone. On the whole my skin is very clear I just have scarring on my chin and forehead from past breakouts that needs extra coverage. I really do love this for those "good skin days" where I don't need loads of coverage but still want a nice even skin tone. MAC Face and Body in C3 is actually a perfect match for me in terms of colour. Most of the time foundation is incredibly hard to find but this matches like a dream. None of the other MAC foundations match my skin tone so I was supersede to like this on me as much as I do!

Considering MAC Face and Body is 50 ml compared to the usual 30 ml which seems to be standard for foundations it makes this pretty good value for money. I personally really like this foundation and have got a fair bit of wear out of it since I purchased it. It hasn't broken me out (thankfully!) and doesn't oxidise on my skin, so I think I'd be pretty happy to say I recommend this foundation!

  8. I do love this foundation, I swapped it recently as I felt it was making my face look a little too 'dewy', verging on oily but i've come back to it as I can't find a foundation which makes my skin look so flawless and even rather than just caked with foundation that doesn't sit on the top.
    And like you said, it s a great colour match as it just blends in so well. I love this foundation! x

  9. however, it does need a setting powder and I don't find it lasts as long as i would like. do you have any suggestions to help with that?xx

  10. People really seem to like this foundation but it just sounds far too sheer and dewy of a finish for me xx

  15. I have this foundation and you do get a lot for your money, it's really runny though so it can be a pain to apply x

  16. mac isn't a brand that i instantly think of when i'm looking for a new foundation and due to you saying this one is sheer i'm not sure it's for me... i really do need full coverage and whilst you say it's buildable i'm a little unsure. however, if the colouring is great, i may look into it as, like you, i struggle to find foundations that meet my true skin colour!

  17. I think this was the first liquid foundation I ever tried back in high school! I loved it back then, but haven't tried it again since. xx

  20. I'm so happy you reviewed this! I've been meaning to try this one out for a while, and your skin looks so flawless, that I've solidified my decision! I'll of course try it on first, but if it offers a light weight coverage that's buildable like you said, it sounds perfectly ideal :)
