I love it
Tags +Long wearing, Color true, moistureizing
I've been using this product for about 10 months now. I purchased it in the summertime which was a No-no for me. I have very dry skin in the winter and I've found that is when this foundation works best for me. I really love how natural it looks on my face. I typically apply it with a fluffy foundation brush and then apply light powder around my tzone-- would reccomend to anyone who struggles with dry skin and love to have their foundation look natural on their face. Also, it give the perfect amount of buildable coverage.

Too oily
Tags +Color true
I thought I had dry skin but I guess I do not. This made my skin feel very oily. I never had a problem with having a shiny face by the end of the day, but with this foundation my face was so shiny after 3 hours. I guess this foundation is for extremely dry skin.

Love!
Tags +Long wearing, Color true
I'm fair skinned and have NC15. Buildable. It has a very nice finish once it sets. It's weightless and I don't have to reapply during the day. It holds up for a good 12 hours!

Natural look, my favorite!
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true
I absolutely love this foundation!! If you're looking for a true dewy look, this definitely is the one for you! The mineralize line, in general, is amazing!! Around winter time, i get super dry skin and this one definitely does it for me! It feels absolutely refreshing on the skin and non-drying at all. It looks so natural and glowy and lasts pretty much all day! Around the summer time though, i probably wouldn't recommend this, especially if you tend to be more oily, but possibly with a good mattifying primer, you may get away with it. But other than that, this is definitely one of my favorites!!

If you have oily/combo skin, skip this. This is a foundation for true dry skin. It's absolutely beautiful on the skin but wear time could be better!

Not as full coverage as I thought...BUT it comes on nicely and has no strong smell or anything. The pump is also very helpful.Long wearing.

NOT for dry skin
I primarily use face and body, but in the winter when my skin is a bit redder was looking for something with more coverage. This is awful, chalky, I would not recommend.

I have dry skin and it works wonders for me. It feels very light on the skin and since I got the right colour for my skin tone it looks like a second. The "moisturised", dewy finish looks nice too and it makes my dry skin look naturally moisturised. It is sort of sheer looking, but the coverage can be built up, however, I personally don't find the need for more coverage.
I wouldn't recommend it for people with oily skin, because of its dewy finish, though.

NOT EVEN FOR DRY SKIN
Tags +too heavy, transfers
I have dry skin and it doesnt work for me. It will transfer and make me look oily, the color is too pink for me, and is definelly not suited for hot weather. It is terrible, I would buy Matchmaster. This one feels really heavy on the skin, I can only imagine people with oily combination, it must be even worse than it its for me.

Great for Very Dry Skin
Tags +Creamy, dewy, Moisturizing
This is definitely my holy grail foundation! I love the color (NC44) as it leans more neutral in comparison to MACs other foundations (it's also darker however, so those who normally wear NC44 might want to pick up NC42 instead). The coverage is great, but I would definitely reserve this foundation for winter as it will melt of your face in patches if you sweat. Thank you MAC for making a foundation for us dry skinned girls and boys as well. OILY SKIN GIRLS AND BOYS AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!! This will make you look greasy! For dry and normal skinned girls and boys, I can see this being a hit or a miss as it takes some playing around with to get good results. MAC please do not discontinue this product!

Oily Skin? Warning!
Tags +Creamy, Color true, not for long wear
I have very oily skin, so I like to try different foundations to see what works for my skin.This is NOT for oily skin! It looks nice for about an hour, after that I had to blot my face at least 3 times every hour. But great for dry skin.

It does not work for me. Within hours of wear my eyeliner would bleed under my eyes making me look tired, haggered and worn out
I would not recommend for users of normal or combination skin it may work better if you have very dry skin.
I did like that product went on softly and light to enhance the completion however it was not a long wear foundation. User will need to apply powder often

Love this foundation, it offers a very fresh,dewey and flawless coverage. I purchased nc35 and use Mac Mineralize powders to contour and highlight. The powders work perfectly with this foundation. I apply with a sponge for light even coverage.

Not for oily skin
I bought it to go with the mineralize skinfinish which is a LOVE of me all time. I've had this bottle for a while, and I haven't been using it religiously because I'm not quite convinced by it. The texture is more liquid than creamy. And I find it hard to blend out partly due to that. It tends to leave brush traces.The finish is pretty wet and shiny, so I wouldn't recommend it for those who tend to get oily on their face like me. The radiance it gives is great, I find my face brighter than when I use other foundations. The coverage is medium, less than matchmaster but more than bb cream. The staying power is not really great either, I just feel overwhelmingly oily after wearing it for two hours since it starts off being very oily anyway. So if your skin is very dry or you want that dewy wet look, it'd be great for you but it's just not the right one for me.

Epic fail for me....
I purchased this product for the first time and I hate it. I'm not sure if its my skin type which is normal but this foundation makes me VERY shiny and oily. I usually purchase the studio fix liquid foundation but attempted something new. It was worth trying but I'll just stick to "old faithful."

Don't buy
I'm sorry but the worst foundation I have ever bought. I felt more satisfied by using drug store product than this. It leaves my face sho shiny and oily always coming off on my hands and clothes or anything else I touch. Worst purchase ever.

Not good at all!!!
I purchased this foundation after starting isotretinoin, a medicine used to treat acne by stopping the sebaceous glands from producing oil, I figured this would be perfect for my now dry skin complexion. This foundation is not, it is way too moisturizing and makes my face look oily when my skin doesn't even produce oil. Not only that it feels sticky and never completely sets, no matter how hard I desperately try to make it stay. It also settles within my pores and oxygenates by the end of the day. I'm an avid MAC user and was disappointed by this product.
