Holy grail foundation

I'm shade 5 & I love it, however I noticed the price is going up. It was $33 & now it's $36. Soon MAC will be charging $40 soon.

Not sure
Tags +Creamy, Color true
Let me start by saying I have used studio sculpt for the past year, I do love it but I was willing to try something different,I dont have anywhere to buy this makeup so I have to rely online chat which was very helpful, I ordered a 4 originally use that for 2 weeks and found thats little dark, so I ordered a 3
the colors are very similar I am sending it back, as far as coverage goes, yes I thought it was very good, creamy, long wearing if I applied lots in morning, but I didnt feel like it was worth the extra money from other one I used,

Tags +Long wearing, Color true
I fell in love with this foundation as soon as the lady at the MAC store applied it on my face! It's very true to my skin tone color and doesn't make you look cakey and not heavy at all.

I love this foundation. I just repurchased today and I realize that the bottle isn't the same? It's smaller but the price is still the same? I do not understand why but the foundation, itself, is wonderful. I don't think it's worth $33, now that the size is smaller

Best foundation ever!
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true, Bold Color
I have tried just about every foundation from drug store to high priced foundations, and this is my favorite! I have very oily acne-prone skin, and this has worked wonders. Normally my make up is gone by the end of the work day, and this stays on all day. I Have very pale skin, and most foundatins make me look orange, but this suits my skin tone perfectly. It is easily buildable without looking cakey. A little bit high priced but you get quality for what you pay! love this foundation and I know I will be wearing it for a long time.

Color was exact match for my skin tone, coverage wasn't what I was expecting based on product details, for good coverage I wouldn't recommend

Bad
I absolutely hated it! I have combination/oily acne prone skin with a few dark acne scars and a few small breakouts.I have never had issues with covering acne scars or breakouts with foundations even with my skin at it's worst. My skin is much much better now. I found that even with moisturized skin the foundation made my face look dry and feel dry. It brought out every slightly dry area and sad horribly on my skin... any powder i put on top of it make it look even worse than before... and normally I have issues with oily areas. It applied streaky and was AWFUL to blend I felt as soon as I put it on the skin and tried blending it would rub right off even if I barely touched it... I tried it multiple times using foundation brushes, beauty blenders and my fingers and nothing worked..I have tried lots of high end foundations and I really wasnt expecting to spend $50 on something so bad ..... will be returning unfortunately.

This foundation is truly amazing. It matches my skin color so well and does not look cakey. My nose gets really oily, but this absorbs the oil well and keeps me shine free all day!

FINALLY!!!
Tags +Long wearing
I've gone back and forth with MAC foundations.. they've made me break out, have made my skin to oily, blotchy, or, wouldn't stay on my skin. I decided to give this a try and I absolutely LOVE it.
I've been using it for a week now and my skin is still fine,keeps a nice matte finish, lasts ALL day, ( I apply my make up at 6 in the AM and by the time I get home, if I have some where to go, I just need a small powder touch up)
I use this with the BB Cream and it's amazing.
thank you MAC!

Love it!
Tags +Color true
I just bought this today based on the reviews i've been reading. I tried it on at home and so far so good! It does blend in so well that it looks like you don't even really have make up on, but just an enhanced skin tone! I usually go for the dewey type foundations since i have dry skin (especially during winter time), but even though this is more matte, i'm actually liking the finish! It doesn't look too matte where it looks dry. As far as how long it lasts all day, i have yet to find out, but MAC has never disappointed me when it comes to longevity so i'm hoping this one stays true to that! We'll see!!

Acne prone skin NO WORRIES!
Tags +Long wearing, Color true, great for acne prone skin
I have acne prone skin and drug store makeup breaks me out. This is my first high-in makeup I have used and been using since 2012 and would never go back. I do have oily skin so I apply a light powder on top but it last all day for me. I am a college student and this makeup is a great investment.

I am obsessed with this foundation. I have spent hundreds of dollars on high end foundations that dont even compare to this! Stays matte all day (i have oily skin) covers all of my acne and scars with one layer. Blends incredibly well into my skin. Its perfect! Please try

Do you have oily skin? Drop everything and go get this ASAP.
Tags +Long wearing, Color true
I never write reviews, but this is the BEST foundation I have ever tried. I have oily/combination skin that is consistently angry. I've been using mineral powders for ages as I thought they would be less heavy on my skin. Nothing worked. This does. It covers and blends evenly and matches perfectly to my skin tone. Without a single touch up, I last the entire workday without my skin ever feeling oily at all. I'm setting it with Blot Powder and I'm sure that helps too, but this is honestly an incredible product if you struggle with similar skin issues <3.

beautiful, flawless coverage, I was really impressed
Tags +Long wearing, Color true
I never do reviews but I have oily, acne prone African American skin and a MAC make up artist recommended it. I went in to try the Studio Fix fluid to wear with my Natural Finish powder. I hate foundation and I never wear it because I can never find a match and I have always hated the way it makes my oily skin feel. So she said no to the Studio Fix and gave me a sample of this to try before I buy it and I must say after wearing it for three days I love it! It looks natural and covered up my dark marks from past break outs flawlessly. However, it does NOT feel heavy on my face and it lasted all day through heat and humid conditions outside (because I really wanted to test it I went to a fair in 90 degree weather). I still had to powder my nose but it really lasted. I can't wait to go and buy me a full size..!

Just bought this product last night and used it this morning. Where has this been my whole life? It's a medium coverage so it doesn't give you that "cake face" look. Living in Arizona, this stuff is perfect because there is SPF in it as well. It goes on so smooth and perfectly!

Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Natural, adjusts, sheeer, non-cakey
I am used to RCMA foundations. I wanted to have a variety and decided for MAC. I owned various eyeshadows and some lipsticks from MAC but I was not familiar with NC NW..etc. After doing much research I decided the Matchmasters are easier for me to work with in terms of finding the right shades and I have to mix less. Also I can buy all shades because there are only about 12 or so. THe darker shades can look orange, that is the only thing I do not like about the foundations. AFter some minutes they adjust and the orange tint can still be seen but not much. Out of 7 clients so far only 1 the foundation started to fade and became patchy.

I FORGOT I WAS WEARING MAKEUP.
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, color adjusting, natural finish, weightless, spf 15, applies flawlessly, great for combo skin
What first attracted me was the size of this bottle, because hey, a college girl's gotta get a good value! But when I looked into the product itself more, I fell even more in love.
I had a MA swatch the shades 1 and 1.5 on my face and neck (I'm a shade NW 15 in Studio Fix) at my counter and I loved the finish, so I asked for a sample of 1, which she thought would suit me better since the Matchmaster foundation is supposed to "adjust" to and work with your skin personally.
When I used my sample at home the next day, I had to do a fricken double take in my mirror because MY SKIN LOOKED SO GOOD. And not like it was photoshopped, but a slightly glowy, slightly matte, and definitely smoother and more even version of my own skin. I can apply this with my fingers, a sponge, or a brush, however my favorite way to apply is with my MAC 159 because I barely use any product and still get the same flawless effects. And, since I live in sunny Central Oregon, the SPF 15 is a huge bonus for me!
It literally feels like you are wearing NOTHING on your face, because this foundation is literally weightless. I am in love. I still love my Studio Fix Fluid, too, but this has definitely become my every day go-to foundation. Couldn't be more impressed! I am still thrilled that it comes in a huge pump bottle.
If you are a combo skin gal like me, please sample this, you will be so shocked, I promise you!
