Mac Face And Body Foundation Review – I always have the same question when I am in a makeup store: What is the more natural looking product you have here? Because even though I am a fan of makeup, I am not a fan of wearing too much makeup.
I believe that less is more ( with all respect to those who enjoys putting lots of makeup. I think if you enjoy it, why not?) But for me personally, it does not cut off.
Up to this point, I remember me trying one mac foundation (which I do not remember how is that called) and to be honest, I didn’t like very much because the finish was too thick for me…
But when the mac makeup artists told she had the perfect one for me, then she brought up the mac face and body foundation, I thought to myself: Hum…Maybe this one?
Mac face and body foundation – A few considerations about the Product
I decided to give it a try, the makeup artist gave me a sample which by the way… MAC is not giving samples anymore? That’s a shame! Well…coming back to the foundation, my first impressions were like, this is kinda interesting…
It is a liquid based foundation, the texture is very thin which is great if you are a fan of a more natural look this is the product for you. Also, if you do not have much to cover, I think you should go for it.
If I like it? Yes, I do, but I understand that not everyone will do for some reasons. This is a good foundation if you do not have serious skin problems. Also, if your skin is too oily, then you will probably not really like very much because it can leave the skin even oilier and shiny.
Here is a quick video demo/review that will help you see this mac face and body foundation in action – Mac Face and Body foundation Review
I personally use this base for all occasions, like even going to parties, etc, but I know this base is ideal for an everyday situation. Perfect for a no makeup, makeup look. For example, to go to work, school, college, where you will have a good product on your face for a natural and fresh look, without over do it.
One thing I noticed is that even though there will be good coverage, some people have more problems with dark circles. I am not sure, but I think if you have deep strong dark circles, maybe another foundation would be ideal. I have seen some other foundations doing it better.
If you want to do a recording, or photography, or an event that requires a little more makeup, you should skip this one.
About the durability, I normally put it on when leaving the house and then I worry not about it. Most of the times I do not use anything but the foundation, and it works well.
If you have dry to normal skin, then I believe this product would work really well even without applying powder on top. But if you have oily skin, a light powder will resolve any shininess you might have.
Coming back to durability, as I said, I just apply when I am leaving the house, without retouching, and I never had problems. I think it least hours and hours, like if you put it on in the morning, in the afternoon you will still have it all right.
Another aspect that I like is the quality of the product. It does not leave me with pinpoints, as some other foundations do. This is one aspect that makes me loyal to this mac face and body foundation for many years (I think 6 years more or less).
The foundation I was using before was an old Lancome foundation, and don’t get me wrong I like this brand but this particular foundation (which I don’t remember the exact name and think they are not selling this one anymore) had a rough finish which was not really an attractive to me.
Overall the mac face and body foundation is a good product, I recommend. Even though I am open to trying new products. I am not saying this is the definitely product you and I need. I like it, I have been using this for many years, but there are still improvements.
The name is already saying…The foundation. To have a good make up we need to start with a good foundation. But it is a little deeper than looks, a good foundation will not irritate your skin nor will cause acne.
I decided to try big makeup brands just for one reason. It was not because of the brand, it was not because I enjoy buying expensive cosmetics, it is just because I have sensitive skin. Very sensitive, most brands would leave my skin itchy, red, and leave pinpoints.
Having this in mind, by a suggestion of a friend I tried mac and it was good.
