M.A.C Face & Body Foundation

MAC-Face-and-Body-3708

Lately my skin has been a mess.  Even though it’s super humid here on the islands, my face has been really dry.  I normally use Makeup Forever’s HD foundation in Desert (123) and recently find it feeling very heavy and dry and even looking a bit cakey 😦  I’ve never tried the Face and Body foundation before because I tend to go for a bit more coverage than this can provide.  However, I decided to give it a go because I really needed a change. I ended up buying  the shade C5 and it is a perfect match to both my skin and MUFE’s 123.  I’ve been using this product for the last 3 days and I’m absolutely loving it.  It’s super light on my skin which feels noticeably great compared to other foundations.  It provides a sheer coverage but it’s buildable and with 2 applications it gave me the coverage that I liked.  Here are some of my pro’s and con’s…

Pros:

Lightweight.  It’s been really nice with this hot weather we’ve been having.

Water-based.  It leaves a nice dewy finish, I thought I’d look oily but that’s not the case at all, it leaves a very natural finish.

Coverage is buildable.  Like I mentioned, it takes me 2 applications to achieve the coverage I need, but one application definitely provides enough coverage for those who don’t need too much.

A little goes a long way.  Because of the water base consistency the product goes on so smoothly and applies nicely.  It doesn’t dry up in the middle of application.

Cons:

Using your fingers.  This has been the biggest downfall for me because I love using a brush to apply my foundation.  With this product you’ll find yourself wasting too much product by applying it with a brush.  Your fingers are your best bet.

Longevity.  I recommend using a setting powder with this product.  I still use my NARS Light reflecting setting powder and it’s worked great.

So there you have it!  I highly recommend this product.
